    Emmanuel Sanders throwing Ben under the bus for throwing teammates under the bus.

    Does victory lap on his "Manning is a better leader than Ben" comments.

    Rapsheet says the Broncos are a team to keep an eye on for AB rumors.

    Paraphrasing.

    Said he was a better leader; after saying that's why; he had just thrown Ben under the bus for calling out teammates.

    Sanders also declined to air other dirty laundry.

    To be fair to Sanders, he was pretty much right in what he said. Ben could have handled the post game presser when he called out AB and the rookie a lot better. Didn't need to throw those guys under the bus publicly. Even if he was right about them not doing their job properly. Great leaders just don't do that.

    Yeah, Sanders destroyed Roethlisberger...and of course, good ole Irvin tried his very best to take the heat off of a receiver, and put it.....well anywhere else. Funny thing though....as much as Sanders ripped into Brown, he also seemed to want him on the Broncos.

    Turds of a feather?

    Broncos have the cap space and pick 10 wouldn't be that steep of a price for him so I could see them being in the mix for a trade. Plus Elway's seat is starting to get warmer and warmer so he needs to turn things around.

    Though I would still say if an NFC team makes a comparable offer to any of the AFC teams the Steelers will ship him to the NFC.

    I'm pretty sure he would be talking about Peyton since he played with both of them.

    Manning did once yell "God Damn it Donald!!!" But it was so obvious that Brown was either blocking the wrong guy or he was supposed to be out in a route.

    I thought the irony was he was throwing an(ex)teammate under the bus airing out dirty Laundry LOL
    I completely agree with him, but thought it was funny. it is dangerous getting on a high horse.

    With all that said. These conversations sucks.
    If you are thinking about ABs sniveling bitch actions. Quit side stepping the conversation by saying things like yeah but he hurt my feelings & is worse BS.
    AB is in the wrong & acts like he is above the team. Period. His attitude sucks & a POS for doing so. No matter what Ben did.

    Now if you want to talk about Ben quit side stepping by saying yeah but AB Blah blah blah. That conversation is about Ben not the others. He isnt a good leader when he talks trash about "his" guys to the public. Then there it is all the coaches fault. Bull Shit. These are grown ass men getting paid a ton of money for a skill. Not to be catered too.

    Now if you want to talk about the coach in a separate conversation that is fine too.

    but when you mix them all together, no one actually has to take the blame. Just a bunch of side taking & finger pointing.

    Yep... it’s one gigantic shitshow. And this is just the tip of the iceberg.

    1) Tomlin... a coach that is better suited to be a cheerleader and creates a ton of dissension amongst his ranks because of the way he handles his egotistical stars.
    2) Ben... most of the problems start with him. A “supposed” leader that loves to throw his teammates under the bus publicly, instead of being a man and handling it inside the locker room. Tomlin does nothing about it and thus you have the ego’s stepping forth like AB. AB knows he cannot publicly bash Ben who is the face of the franchise. But since the true leaders of this team, Cowher’s vets, all got weeded out... There has been a massive void in leadership. When Ben threw AB under the bus after the Denver game, Tomlin should have stepped in. He didn’t and AB was probably furious.
    3) AB/Bell... Different situations, but Prima donnas that can’t handle themselves like professionals. If a true leader were within this organization they would have taught them better from the start. But no doubt they watched how much the FO let Ben get away with so they too thought they could abuse their longer leashes. AB is getting exactly what he wants though, a 1 way ticket out of this poisonous locker room.


    I’m honestly surprised that Art hasn’t blown the entire thing up. Tomlin needs to go. That would be the only thing that could salvage the relationships within the locker room. But we know he’s staying, so that means AB is as good as gone.

    Nothing wrong with calling out teammates when they behave like Brown.

    Idt anyone really cares much about what Sanders has to say about Ben now, but if all of the rumors are true, AB will be playing somewhere else as of March. Maybe DEN is a one of them.

    Arians will have Tampa on a fast track for sure...he has some assets that will get PIT's attention.

    The one thing that pissed me off about that conversation was Michael Irvin. Why in the holy fuck he brings race into that is beyond me. This shit with AB being Black and because the coach is black, he should show him more respect? It doesn't matter if the coach is black, white or alien green with purple fucking polkadots. Why even bring that into the conversation? Mind you, every time Irvin opens his idiot mouth, I want to destroy the TV.
