PostSubject: 'Mean' Joe Greene thinks 'showboating' caused 2016 to be a 'year lost' for Steelers   Sun Apr 09, 2017 12:51 pm

The Steelers franchise has an identity as a tough, blue-collar team. Hand in the dirt, working man, just throw the fries on the sandwich, etc. That stems from teams that played in a different generation, and some of the guys who played then aren’t all that impressed with the current iteration.

One guy specifically -- Hall of Famer “Mean” Joe Greene -- actually thinks that the Steelers are so full of preeners that they couldn’t win as much in 2016 as they should have.

Greene, speaking to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, called 2016 a “year lost” because of some weapons they lost as well as “guys who like to showboat.”

“We got guys who like to showboat. It’s definitely the one [Brown], but it’s more than one. And they owe themselves better than that,” Greene said.

Joe doesn't understand the expressiveness of todays young athletes.

Kind of an Oscar Robertson, Mike Ditka, "Get off My Lawn" opinion.

If you want to showboat do it in the locker room after a win.

AB grows up this season and will light up the field.

As always, when it comes to the Steelers, Mean Joe speaks the truth.

Too many "me's" and not enough "we's."

You didn't see this stuff from our guys back in the 70's. you heard sound bites later. Stuff like: "That'll cool you ass off" but no penalty celebrations. And we had a guy who wore platform shoes with goldfish in them. He wore them OFF of the field of course. L.C. dressed like a pimp off the field but on game day all business.

Should hire Mean Joe to be Martavis Bryant's sponsor or something.
