Maybe Brown is just smarter with public relations, but I really think his psyche is less about a sense of entitlement that Wallace seems to have. Brown seems to more readily embrace how fortunate he is to be doing what he is doing for who he is doing it for. That resonates with people. Again, those are Wallace problems not Brown problems.

    If you know anything about the city of Pittsburgh and Steelers fan it should be that at heart they are in spirit, whether or not in reality, very "blue collar" and that shapes their perceptions about their sports heroes. The appearance and the act of loyalty means alot which is why Mario Lemieux is worshipped and Barry Bonds, and Wallace to a far lesser extent, is despised.
    you forgot Jagr

    I like Austin in the 2nd, but give me Brown, Deandre Hopkins, Sanders, Cotchery, and Cobi Hamilton. I'd be happy with that WR corp in a hot minute.
    Here comes the BOOM!

    Where's Mendy when you need him?

    If this is true- if fans are ripping into him for this- then that is pretty sad.

    Rip him for his play- sure, but for his beliefs?

    Next thing you know, we'll be running him out of town Mendenhall-style..
