Steelers players call for Burfict suspension

  • JuJu Smith Schuster isn't worried about possibility of Vontaze Burfict seeking revenge

Pittsburgh Steelers offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert spoke about the Burfict and his behavior from last week's game and he didn't hold back. "It's sad. One of these days he'll grow up". As Brown was going to the ground, Burfict came to deliver a hit and made contact with Brown's head and upper body area with what appeared to be Burfict's elbow.

The game was won when: When Antonio Brown took a short pass from Ben Roethlisberger and raced 31 yards untouched with 10 seconds left in capping a 7-play, 77-yard drive and 68 seconds. There was no flag on the play, and there isn't likely to be a suspension. And the Steelers were less than happy with their longtime nemesis.

"It's tough to see AB get hit like that", he said. "How do you allow that stuff?" After the game, Burfict chose to duck the media completely to avoid the inevitable questions about his questionable plays on the field. A memorable meeting during the playoffs after the 2015 season included personal foul penalties on Burfict and Adam "Pacman" Jones.

Burfict has a long history of egregious hits, fines and suspensions since entering the league in 2012.

"This was the most physical game I've been in", Smith-Schuster said.

There's definitely some bad blood between Smith-Schuster and Burfict. Burfict was out there lying, saying I spit on him, which I didn't ... "You could just see it, with the talking, the pushing and shoving, the tackling, just doing the extra stuff". Who knows? He should be suspended for that hit.

Pittsburgh guard David DeCastro said he would like the National Football League to start protecting its receivers as much as it does its quarterbacks. "With all the emphasis on quarterback safety, what about a guy like AB - a superstar he is in this league, how much money he's getting paid, how much he means to this team?"

"Burfict is a really good football player and I think everybody in this locker room has respect for what he can do on the field", Villanueva said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. If they want to talk about making this game safer, maybe they will do something. Or maybe they will put in a new rule that no one is going to call when it matters. I didn't even see it. "They have to relax a little bit and give him a chance".
