Joe Thomas may be in tune with the rivalry between the Browns and Steelers, but he really should’ve thought this one through.
The former Cleveland Browns great played his entire career with the franchise and never made the postseason once in those years.
On Sunday night, the former offensive tackle took to Twitter to troll Pittsburgh Steelers fans during the team’s blowout loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He immediately drew the attention of the fans who went out of their way to roast Thomas and remind him that he never made it to the postseason.
“@Steelers, congratulations on your playoff participation trophy”
It’s been awhile for Thomas, but social media reminded him how a loss felt with their response to him.
Ben Roethlisberger all but announced his retirement from the NFL on Sunday night in Kansas City. After the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 42-21 loss to the Chiefs in the AFC’s wild-card round, the longtime Steelers quarterback sounded like he had played for the final time in the league.
“It’s tough. I’m proud to have played with these guys,” he told reporters postgame. “God has blessed me with an ability to throw a football, and has blessed me to play in the greatest city, Pittsburgh, with the greatest fans and the greatest football team and players, and it’s just been truly a blessing and I’m so thankful to him for the opportunity that he’s given me.”
Big Ben went 29-of-44 for 215 yards and threw two touchdowns on Sunday. The Steelers were only in the game for a short time when TJ Watt scored a touchdown. It never got any better than that for the remainder of the game.
The Browns may be having a chnage at QB of their own after a disappointing season from Baker Mayfield.
