    Antonio Brown to Raiders

    The long, winding and sometimes confusing Antonio Brown trade saga ended early Sunday morning, as the Pittsburgh Steelersreportedly agreed to deal the Pro Bowl wide receiver to the Oakland Raiders, according to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio. Florio added Brown will receive a new contract as part of the agreement that will pay out $50.125 million over the next three seasons, and that his guaranteed cash has gone from $0 to $30.125 million. ESPN's Adam Schefter added the deal could increase to $54.125 million with incentives. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the Raiders will send 2019 third- and fifth-round picks to the Steelers. Pittsburgh found a new home for Brown after trade talks between the Steelers and Buffalo Bills reportedly broke down late Thursday night into early Friday morning. Rapoport reported Thursday night that the Bills were "closing in" on a deal for Brown, but a source told Schefter that the trade was "unlikely." Bills general manager Brandon Beane then made it official that the Bills were out of the running Several theories surfaced regarding why the trade didn't happen, but Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported Brown was "unwilling" to go to Buffalo. La Canfora then called Brown's market "bleak." Even so, the Steelers eventually found a landing spot for arguably the best wide receiver of the past decade. There is no denying that Brown is an elite wideout. He is a seven-time Pro Bowler and four-time first-team All-Pro who has registered at least 100 catches for 1,200 yards and eight touchdowns in each of the past six seasons. Although he finished second on the Steelers in receptions and receiving yardage to JuJu Smith-Schuster last season, he still had a strong year with 104 grabs for 1,297 yards and an NFL-best 15 touchdown receptions. Things went sour for Brown and the Steelers leading up to Week 17 of the 2018 season. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac and Ed Bouchette, Brown and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger reportedly got into an argument at practice, which resulted in Brown's skipping practice for the rest of the week and being ruled inactive for Pittsburgh's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Brown was vocal about his desire to get traded once the offseason began, and it wasn't long before it became clear the Steelers were willing to grant his request. Last month, Brown and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, met with Steelers owner Art Rooney II, general manager Kevin Colbert and executive Omar Khan. Schefter reported that a source told him "everyone agreed the trade will be for the best." Brown seemed to confirm the report on Twitter: View image on Twitter 6,692 people are talking about this Twitter Ads info and privacy The Steelers found themselves in a difficult situation, since all of Brown's potential suitors knew Pittsburgh had little choice other than to trade him. Brown's reported refusal to report to the Bills threw another wrench into the situation, since it essentially allowed the receiver to dictate where he would go. In the end, the Steelers reached a deal, and the Raiders have a potential future Hall of Famer as part of their receiving corps. For Derek Carr, who saw the Raiders trade Amari Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys last season, Sunday's news will be met with open arms. Brown is the best receiver Carr will have ever played with and will give Oakland a focal point for the passing game. The big question will be if Brown can replicate his gaudy numbers in a new offense system and away from Roethlisberger. But it's hard to imagine Oakland pulled the trigger on this trade to make Brown a glorified perimeter blocker. He should see plenty of targets in Oakland.

    ***AAF Sunday official game thread***

    I wouldn't be surprised if Hack gets cut right after this game. So much for blaming his lack of success on coaching

    Almost some. Allegedly, the family is blaming it on long term use of J&J Talcum Powder and he'll be part of that class action suit. Might also explain Woody too.

    Amazing Call In On Joe & Evan

    Seems to me that the only people who dont feel the way Artie does are either casual fans, people who work for the Jets, or people making a living by kissing Woody's and Chris' azz.... people like Mehta.

    Long Term Damage To Fan Base

    I can't imagine anyone can still defend him. Plenty of rumors going around that he's already been fired. Let's hope it's true and that it's not just him that's been let go.

    Bowles is done

    Well, to be fair, Bowles isn't actually killing anyone. Unless you count players' careers and fans' hopes/dreams.

    Long Term Damage To Fan Base

    Yeah they did. Game wasn't even on TV in our part of CT. Instead it was out to bfast, pick up leaves and then a trip to a diner for lunch. We did each have on some Jets gear. Can't tell you how many ppl stopped us and "apologized" for us being Jets fans.

    Seriously...

    It's what we want. It's what we need. Its what we deserve. It's never gonna happen.
  15. Apologies if this isn't the right place to bring up this topic and hopefully this comes across not too doom and gloom... Lifelong Jets fan here who has raised my 2 sons ages 21 and 14 to be Jets fans. We've only missed one home game since becoming season ticket holders/PSL owners a few years ago because of a vacation to Florida. UNTIL TODAY. Not everyone lives close by to MetLife. Coming from CT is a huge investment in time on top of the money we spend. 90 minute ride in so we can get there around 9:30 to tailgate for a few hours and then a 2-3 hour ride home because of the crap show that is NY/NJ/CT traffic. Last night both of my boys said they didn't really want to go to today's game. Why?.. Because of the weather?? No. Because of the traffic?? No. Because they had other plans?? No. They didn't want to go because they both said they have no confidence in this team and they'd rather stay home and watch on TV so that when the Jets are losing to the Bill's they can just turn it off. THINK ABOUT THAT. Woody, Mac and Bowles have done such a piss poor job with this team over the past few years that my boys, like many other Jets fans, don't even have confidence in thinking the Jets can hang with the Bills!!! And honestly, they might be right!! With Darnold out today, who else on this team is worth making the trip to go see? I practically had to give my tix away on the exchange because demand is so low for this team. The bottom line is this. Jets mgmt better turn this ship around and do it fast. Literally no one is growing up to become Jets fans unless they've been indoctrinated and borderline abused into it like my sons. Yes, winning brings out band wagon fans but it also helps the team get positive coverage which then attracts young kids, who then grow into REAL fans. The fact this "organization" has become such an embarrassment is eroding the future fan base. What kid wants to root for and go see a team who is routinely made fun of on tv, radio and by fans of other teams?? Even Browns fans have bragging rights over the Jets this year. If Bowles coaches this team to a loss to a pathetic Bill's team today, he should immediately be fired. No post game press conference... no media interviews... just a statement that Bowles has been fired and literally anyone else is now the interim coach. Mac should not be too far behind. The future fan base and, by extension, financial health of this team are depending on it.
