    If AB is Truly a Problem

    Why wouldn't we want to trade him to Cleveland, Baltimore, NE, KC, etc?

    If we really believe he's a cancer, then we should want him on one of our AFCN or AFC rivals so he helps that team self destruct?

    Because he's proven to be an incredibly productive cancer that causes problems for opposing teams. The change of scenery may mellow him out a little bit, at which point he may no longer be the cancer, but still remain the productive player.

    I believe, IIRC, Colbert said he would prefer not to...

    Which is far different than "won't"

    A) They know he is talented how do they say it " A million dollar talent, A 10 cent head."
    B) one of the PG guys Bouchette or Dulac responded to a chat ? about how bad would it have been if Tomlin had let AB played:

    Mike W.: If Coach Tomlin had allowed AB to play in that final game, what would have been the reaction of the team, in your opinion? I cannot believe that would have had a positive effect. Maybe it was a case of the right thing on the coach's part, although late. But if he had allowed him to play, would he not have risked losing the team?
    Gerry Dulac: Mutiny. He almost did anyway. Why do you think they played so poorly and looked so flat in that game? I don't think it was coincidence.

    I know we tend to dismiss the media but lets be honest they are much closer to these guys than any of us or the national folks. They probably hear a lot more OTR stuff they cannot attribute to but can allude to in things like a chat. The point is if the above response is true...then AB is the problem and one that he can reconcile with the team.

    C) Pretty sure if New England, Baltimore, Cincy came up with a first this year and next year...the deal is done immediately.

    Same reason as Blount. He might not be a cancer on another team for a few years. He wasn’t a cancer for us for a few years.

    If AB big chest plays for someone else, ESPECIALLY an AFC North rival, you can bet he’ll be very motivated to prove people wrong, at least for 2 seasons.

    If he doesn't get traded, bench him and don't pay him.

    Or see how he behaves and then take action. (Although it’s almost impossible to cross that burned bridge)

    AB is Buffalo’s problem.
    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    Nope .. AB blocked the trade by saying he won’t show up if traded to buffalo.

    if AB was such a cancer

    and so toxic to the locker room, why did so many of you (and colbert) say they shouldnt trade him in division, in conference and especially to NE?
