    Now I'm far from a Madden fan, but the story was far more than just about JuJu. It's JuJu life. He can do what he wants. I do what I want.!!!I'm sure Washington would be glad if he hurt Himself on something. LoL.

    Mark Madden says Steelers will beat disheveled Bills in week 1.

    I read the article and will admit that it has given me a tad bit of hope. He points out some of the Bills problems.

    Wentz i thought had the mojo, just can't finish a season. Dak is very productive.
    I was wrong about Cam after his great season & have some hostility for the California qbs, so Goff...phhhtt.

    See. That's just examples of why I'm not sold on Buffalo's QB. Not Yet. We see Dak differently. I see a guy that had the Top rushing rb in the league his first 3 year in. As soon as Zekk dropped so did Dak. People talk about all his yards last year, but skip all his losses, and turnovers last year.

    I'm a giddy type even being proved wrong a lot. I think Joe Burrow and Trevor Lawrence are future superstars in the NFL. One thing that was pointed out to me which I always forget is that these guys are playing against a lot of college players who won't ever play a down in the NFL.

    Since we seem to be talking a lot about JuJu. Here is the real problem with him. He stated he makes more from Tik Tok than from playing football. Therefore he cares more about making a stupid video than playing football (and it shows). JuJu seems to fail to realize he is only popular on Tik Tok because of the Steelers. When his NFL days are over he wont make nearly as much on tik tok and his time in the NFL is almost up. This is his last year in Pittsburgh. He will sign somewhere else and produce very little compared to his contract and be out of the league faster than Brady.

    I think Burrow will be like Andrew Luck, but with a much shorter career before he retires from injuries.
    (That is assuming the Bengals keep overhauling their offensive line.)

    Do you have an actual quote for that?
    Hard to believe he is making over a million with Tik Tok.
    (Unless he has sponsorship deals, which he could easily get without TT if he wanted to.)

    I think Joe Burrow might be the next Chad Pennington with his tiny hands and popgun arm. Lawrence looks like a cyborg QB. If his head is on straight he could be a great one.

    How does it show? Does he miss practice? Not try hard in practice? Not give it his all in games? When I watch JuJu I see a guy who is balling out. He takes vicious shots and isn't afraid to go over the middle. He blocks ferociously. He plays through injuries. Just because he also has a life outside of football does not mean he isn't taking football seriously.

    I heard it on a broadcast during a game. I am not sure if it was printed anywhere.

    That was all true about him prior to tik tok.

    So you are making a huge statement about something you heard on a broadcast but not sure which one and doubling down on your assumption?

    I was telling my stepdaughter about a month or so ago I read a news story about a woman in Texas who had a large tiktok following that was being stalked by a fan and she had video of it. The police told her that in order to file a complaint she had to use her real name not her tiktok personal. She walked out refusing to wreck her tiktok life. That's messed up.

    …Smith-Schuster told Irvin. “I make a lot of money off marketing. I’ll probably say that I make over $2 million off marketing because of who I am, and that’s off-the-field stuff.”

    That link/quote is helpful, but still not definitive.

    Does Juju have other off-marketing deals?
    Or has he said that TikTok is his only revenue source outside of football?

    Plus he’s signed to a 1yr, 8m deal now. So even if all that 2m was tiktok it’s not more than he earns through football.

    Unless Juju's spotters are very tall there is no way Juju's feet are 6' off the ground.

    Just looked it up and that standard milk crate measures 13x13x11. Assuming a square base then the crates are 11" tall. 6 of them are stacked there so that is only 66" or 5' 6" off the ground. Add in the lost height from recesses the crates use for stacking and you could comfortably shave another 1-2 inches off of that.

    Maybe an inch. Those recesses are no more than an 1/8 of an inch.
