Pittsburgh Steelers

Guest Blog – Mad Chad

While I am in Kansas City sucking down ribs and brisket

I don’t want to stop eating OR get sauce on my keyboard!

So Mad Chad of 412 Sports Talk is doing a guest blog post.

Thanks to the internet, Pittsburgh Steelers’ fans were able to see how big of a jagoff Almeda Ta’amu truly is.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are trying to shed a bad public image that they  have developed over the years. Questions about their leadership has filled a locker room full of big egos matched with historical success. Even more so, the Steelers’s precious public image isn’t what it should be. Keeping Ta’amu around certainly isn’t helping that by any means.

Ta’amu, who was a fourth round draft pick last year, recently pleaded guilty to reckless endangerment, resisting arrest, and drunken driving stemming from a police chase last fall. (Tribune-Review) Ta’amu has to do some DUI classes, pay $10,000 worth of fines, while serving two months of probation. Of course, some people are giving him all of the classic excuses, saying that he is young and dumb, and that he just made a mistake.

I’m all for second chances, but this was Ta’amu’s second DUI in about a year. And during the second He tried to run over cops while driving drunk. That’s not a mistake, that’s just sick. This guy needs professional mental help. Getting paid millions of dollars to play football isn’t a right, you have to earn it. Not to mention that the Steelers don’t really need Ta’amu on the field. He’s considered a good prospect but a project player. They can draft someone with the same the same level of potential as Ta’amu in the upcoming draft.

This is more important than football as well. If any regular Pittsburgh citizen or myself did what Ta’amu did we would be in jail. I mean, this guy injured someone and attempted to run over police officers while driving drunk. Not only that, Ta’amu goes ahead and posts a picture of himself drinking whiskey inside of a car, while he’s on probation for these incidents. Why is this guy not in jail?

The Steelers need to cut this guy and move on. Also, people in Pittsburgh need to stop treating drunk driving like it’s acceptable. It’s not hard to call a friend, a cab, or even a damn jitney, and there’s no reason in hell why Ta’amu couldn’t have done any of that. Only jagoffs drink and drive.

Finally, to Almeda Ta’amu, stay off of Twitter and don’t even think about drinking anymore, Ya Jagoff!

Rashard Mendenhall….What Else To Say…

It’s never a good thing when you’re calling your team’s number one draft pick a jag….. well…. you know!  But unfortunately that is something you see a lot of in the NFL these days and the Pittsburgh Steelers are no exception.

Rashard Mendenhall was taken 23 overall by the Steelers in 2008 with high expectations.  He has had his ups and downs on the field in his time here but his performance, good or bad,  DOESN’T qualify him for true jagoffery because he was on the field.

This season, a year when he’s looking for a new contract, Mendenhall is struggling worse than ever….injuries, 113 rushing yards, zippo-zilch-zero touchdowns and 3 fumbles!!!!  So he was benched by Mike Tomlin but still “on the field.”  But this past Sunday, in the Steelers loss to the San Diego Chargers, Mendenhall was nowhere to be seen.  HE DIDN’T BOTHER TO SHOW UP!  He has since been suspended by the team for “conduct detrimental to the team.”

Now the story we’re REALLY interested in hearing is what kept a man, who’s job it is to show up and play a game and get paid millions of dollars to do it, from stopping by to simply WATCH the game.. it was a 4:25pm start so pretty sure it wasn’t an alarm clock issue.  The guy could have literally shown up in a bath robe and nobody would have said a thing about it. Couldn’t he even find his sweatpants and fuzzy slippers? Maybe he was just too busy.. that’s probably why the team gave him off next week in Dallas as well and probably the rest off the year.

There are a lot of people that have WAAAAAY tougher jobs around here and would GLADLY take a couple-a-hundred grand, per Sunday, to stand on the field and watch a Steelers game.   So Rashard… what better way to show your current OR future bosses that you wanna contract than to NOT SHOW UP FOR WORK without even a cough-faking or phony-throat-clearing phone call!!!

Hey Mendenall-ogram, as long as you’re on the roster, get your ARSE to the games and figure out how to enjoy the heated, non-splintering bench…. because, with those SLIPPY hands, ain’t NO WAY your getting picked up by another team AND you should have no fear of being drafted by the vendors union to sell hot dogs, nachos or beer, YA JAGOFF!

The Steelers Lost To Nashville So…….

We know.  You didn’t need that title to make it all sink in.  And we won’t get into what this means on the schedule so….

All that WE know is that as the Steelers wins go, so the post-game work days go!  Which means it’s probably pretty miserable at work today.  So, if you are miserable just memorize the following quote OR post it near your work area OR on your forehead if you don’t have a work area:

No, I’m not makeing those photocopies.  No, I don’t have your STUPID report done! It was assinine anyway.  I have no interest in hearing how your kid did at last night’s soccer game.  I am cancelling all meetings EXCEPT for the one’s where I get to lash out at someone and take out my anger.  No, you cannot borrow my stapler, a paperclip or a pen. And by the way, make your own coffee, do you think I’m your mother?   Just let me alone until it’s time to get the hell outta here for the weekend. And, be prepared if you leave before I do, if you’re driving in front of me going home, you’d better remember that the gas pedal is the one on the right because, otherwise, I am pretty much going to run up over YOUR vehicle cuz I feel pretty James-Harrison-like aggressive.  And YES, I’m P@#$ off about the Steelers game last night , Ya Jagoff!
