    No doubt. That said, everyone has a different mindset when going pro. Some want to be the best; others crave and yearn for fame and fortune. Social Media only amplifies these aspects.



    All this said, I personally do not have as much of an issue with it at most.

    Still doesn't mean he's not right from time to time.

    His whole career is built on his persona as the voice of the everyman in the Pittsburgh area and being negative all the time. He would have Juju stay at home everyday playing video games when not on the field and when EA, Microsoft, Sony gave his a huge endorsement deal for sitting on the couch playing video games Mark Madden would have a problem with it and write a column on how Juju needs to be at Southside breaking down film and lifting weights.

    Let's be honest you can either live life or be afraid of it. They could handle fame the way Madden suggests and do everything right and still step on a partially thawed French fry at Tomlin's annual Dave and Busters team building exercise and tear their ACL. Time to get busy living or get busy dying.

    For me, less “nailed it”, more an incoherent rant shoving together a load of cliches we’re all far too familiar with by now.

    Juju does social media. How terrible.

    Only thing Madden nails are his 50 cheeseburgers for lunch.

    The guy who called Ike Taylor the worst draft pick ever. His job is to stir the pot and he is good at it even if he eventually gets fired from everywhere he goes.

    I thought it was a decent read as well. Certainly one of Mark Maddens finer points and I am by no means a fan of his. I told my mom back in the 80's how America was being dumbed down and now having Influencers making millions of dollars just drives home that point. Everyone seems to want to be famous with their narcissism these days. I couldn't care less what a milk crate challenge is but if it has any possibility of injuring one of our top WR's then there should be a contract clause against it. The Ben Vs. Watson comparison was spot on as to the hypocrisy of the punishments or lack there of in regards to Watson.

    A six to seven feet tall milk crate stacked like stairs that you climb up and then down without falling. The danger comes from uneven ground and weak milk crates. I put it on par with losing your board and faceplanting on a half pipe.

    He's had it out for JuJu every since he got here. Apparently NFL players should be covered in bubble wrap and placed into storage the moment they come off the field.

    Madden has had it out for the Steelers in general for a very long time. JUJU is just easy pickings.

    When the only tool you have is a hammer
    Everything looks like a nail

    Do you understand the hypocrisy of Mark Madden who if you look at anything created by NFL films from the latter 90's until the mid 2000's dealing with Pittsburgh or Pittsburgh and Cleveland has his jowls shaking as he makes his bold pronouncements, suggesting that today's players care more about social media presence than the job that pays them? The man hasn't found a microphone he doesn't like or a time when he wouldn't give his often times way off base opinion on and yet somehow he feels the need to try and score cheap points on guys because of a stupid stunt? My God let's debate his tired one offs then by all means.

    Madden is a slug of a human being and deserves it, Mr Sensitive.

    And he has no point, its ridiculous and won’t waste my time explaining it to you.

    We all know exactly why he hasn't been punished but no one will say it.
