    You're missing the most important fact
    12/16/18- Steelers 17 Pats 10
    9/8/19- Steelers 3 Pats 33

    Steeler- 17 Pats- 10 > Steelers- 3 Pats- 33

    LOL so you're just posting facts that have nothing to do with your original argument now huh. Your goalposts are going to end up in London.

    It is tenacity and you haven't been close to right since the Raiders fiasco shot your argument to hell.

    Another important fact

    Perhaps we get a new thread started titled. "I was more right about AB than you were", and petty battle of egos can continue there, while allow the rest of us to avoid the endless litany of "yes I am, no you're not" posts

    Ok, it's time to move this thread to General NFL talk.

    AB is no longer a Steeler. And we're not playing the Patriots this week.

    We let this go on in Steeler talk long enough. Now that the season is in full swing, and there's plenty of relevant grievances to air, this just becomes a distraction.

    God Bless You Ray! And using your logic about who we're NOT playing this next Sunday, would you please consider moving all threads regarding the opener game to perhaps the Flea Market Trash Heap Classifieds so we can get that quickly to the rear view mirror? :beg:

    Glad this thread moved.... Thanks.
    Saw on twitter that AB's contract was structured as $1m guaranteed + 9m in roster bonuses, and 1.5m (each) bonuses for surpassing last years 1)receptions, 2)yards 3) TD's..... which is friggen hilarious.... missing game 1.... on a team that already has edelman..... NO WAY he surpasses 105 receptions and 16TD's and 1300 yards in 15 regular season games in a new offense.... :roflmao:

    If the Raiders fiasco is fair game, so is Brown ending up on the Patriots. I'm not moving the goalposts at all.

    The facts I am adding are things that happened since the trade. You and others were doing that during his time with the Raiders, yet somehow it isn't fair game for me? That isn't moving goalposts at all. That is using the same rhetorical tactics you use.

    If you want to go back and wipe out everything that has happened since the trade, I'm fine with that. The facts work for me there, too.

    No, you are reinventing your entire argument but I don't care. You'd gain a little respect around here if you just said you know what guys, I got this one wrong, AB is nuts.

    But you do you, Scribe. Whatever works for you.

    Antonio Browns contract only guarantees $1M and the most that he can make this year is $8.5M.

    https://nypost.com/2019/09/09/theres-a-20-million-wrinkle-in-antonio-browns-patriots-contract/

    In addition to that, there's incentives to make another $4.5M if he equals his production from last year....... 105 catches 1298 yards 15 tds.......which there isn't a snowballs chance in hell that he will get in 15 games in that system.

    It will be interesting to see how he handles it late in the year when he's trying to hit those incentives and TB is spreading the ball around to everyone else.

    Very smart contract by the Pats

    That video on youtube when he gets the call that the Raiders released him was sickening. Wish he slipped and broke leg.

    I agree with the talking heads who say he won't be in NE come week 10.

    Anybody want to start a poll of when you think AB will get kicked out of NE? Maybe criteria to guess correctly should be the day he is cut or asks for a release.

    Someone help me out here. I saw some tweets talking about an Brown getting 20 million guaranteed at the end of the season or next season. Is this an extra 5 million on his deal with the Pats or is it 20 mill in addition to the 15 million? If it is the latter how is the league not stepping in and saying yeah we can't allow this. You can't scorched earth your way out of 3- million guaranteed in Oakland to a better situation in New England where they are going to give you 35 million but after the season and so you won't blow their cap to hell and back. I can't imagine they want to allow that to set a precedent.

    $20M is an option year for the Pats, next season.
    This is a little different than the link that I posted, but very similar. Still the FULLY GUARANTEED money is only $1M. Seems that other 'signing bonus' money is tied to something else (like showing up every week as in my previous post, plus a $500K bonus). So 15 games X 500K= $7.5M + 500k bonus = $8M + $1M fully guaranteed= $9M + NLTBE bonuses ($4.5m) = $13.5M. Still $1.5M short though.

    Structured very smartly by the Pats. Could be interesting though in regards to the NLTBEs. There's no way in hell he's getting them and it will be interesting to see how AB handles that, especially as the season wears on and it becomes increasingly clear that he won't get them. That's when things could get ugly. This could go either way.....he could make the Pats unstoppable or he could be working at Chipotle by Thanksgiving.

    No, I think that he truly believes that he will earn every penny of the $15M and that the Patriots will pick up the $20M next year, so he's better off.

    AB has made his career about betting on and believing in himself, so he probably believes 100% that he can hit those numbers, even if reality says something different.

    Also I've said it before, AB is the least self aware person that I've ever seen. He doesn't see it as a problem when he's skipping practice, late for practice, complaining about his helmet, threatening the GM, etc etc etc.......

    It is always that he's misunderstood or it's someones else's fault, so in his mind, when it comes to falling in line and playing the "Patriot Way" there's no reason why he couldn't do it.

    Most rational people see him for what he is. He hasn't a clue.
