    I would assume he's looking at 6 game suspension reduced to 4 on appeal like Ben got?

    amazing how Steel Maniac has the ability to be wrong all the time.
    which is why folks need to laugh at the predictions and guarantees. Might be a good idea to ask SM his picks each week and do the opposite.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    More Watson news. When one person says it, its debatable. When two people who don't know each other say the same thing it's harder to dismiss. Might other women come out? Suddenly he's Andrew Cuomo.

    Watson better lawyer up and get his check book out to keep these women silent. The worst thing he can do it let the legal process play out as it will only look worse in the court of public opinion.

    Maybe his team will have his back, Maybe they won't. They should if they want to keep him or trade him. If public opinion becomes bad, a divorce between the Texans and Watson will really hurt the Texans. Cut him and they have ( -$51,200,000 ) in dead money on the cap. OUCH. That would the highest dead money cut ever by a good margin.

    Which brings to me an off the field point. Most owners have their own luxury yacht. Well perhaps Green Bay doesn't, but stay with me. There are some key people who aren't married that are into this stuff. Owners should know who they are, and simply call this person and say I've got a private yacht for this type of stuff with no police, international waters law, and no cameras. Scummy? Perhaps. Protecting their assets, heck yes.

    Years back the Vikings tried something like this, except they boat was rented & paid for by one of the players. Several of the players including the Quarterback were captured on camera Prostitutes were flown up from Florida and Georgia. There were an estimated 100 women on the boat. It was a really bad day for the NFL which happened before Goodell took office. Had Roger been active, who knows what the fines and suspensions would be.

    Four players faced charges. Later the Mike Tice ( Head coach ) was fired but not before wanting to fight the players in this mess ( Mike Tice was a former offensive lineman player not to far removed from his paying days ) , as apparently stuff like this had happened before. One of the players involved was a Steeler.

    Plan to spend 75 million in cap space in 2022 ( most in the NFL ) and use the 2 comp picks ( 3rd and 5th ) for a killer 2022 draft. We will be back hopefully with better coaching.

    just when I think it's impossible for you to say anything stupider, you do.
    Steel Maniac predicted no RBs would be chosen in the 1st round, so of course we selected:

    1(24) Najee Harris RB Alabama

    Yep. This is like AB. Can't spend a bunch of capital to get a guy, then find out he's not allowed to play in the league anymore.

    If they wanted to just walk away, they could maybe do that (and recoup signing bonus money) depending on the language in his contract.

    But that seems like it would be bad asset management unless there's a conviction or something.

    Seriously thou..

    It's too much of a coincidence that he wants to leave and all of a sudden these chicks pop up. This looks like an angry owner getting back at Watson. Good luck to him because I think
    this is a frame job.
    From the 2010-2020 season, (A 10 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.

    Dolphin fans in the 90ís who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the playoffs in the 70ís...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches

    the first rule of being in a deep hole is to stop digging.

    your premise is idiotic, just stop.

    I see some of he same people trashing Kraft refuse to say anything bad about Watson.
    Color me correct.
    Update:
    In the last decade, 25% of the league has won a super bowl(the Steelers aren't one of them) and now 50% have as many or more playoff wins as the Steelers.

    I don't know how or why but when Watson came out of Clemson his character was impeccable. Not sure what changed or are these damn lies.
