Martavis Bryant misses meetings for doctor visit

Roman Foster said of Bryant. "I don't know what happened. I think he called in sick today. I don't know."

Foster also said it’s unfortunate that Bryant was not at practice to explain himself....

Unfortunate also that Foster has gained weight and regressed as a player.

Maybe so, but they have used him much more the year pulling, and oddly enough, for a guy carrying around a gut like that he’s surprisingly effective. 

Along the o line, the guy that has really dropped off is big Al, which may be the biggest reason for what you are seeing with Foster. That said, when an Ol is cranking out 100 + yards a week rushing, along with minimal pressure on the QB, as a unit, it’s operating fairly well.

I could be wrong but I don't remember Ben being sacked last week. Not even sure if the Bengals laid a mitt on him.

Ben took some hits. Big Al got him crunched again, which seems like a weekly thing at this point.

Juju is now in the concussion protocol.

Now watch Hand-less Bey get more snaps than Bryant because he "blocks".

And someone has managed to steal JuJu's bike from the parking lot at TEAM headquarters.

Concussions starting to be a concern with Ju-Ju? I hope not, but he is very young.

Yes, first one against Giants in preseason opener. I didn't see him take a hit last Sunday.

Where was Marcanibus Bryant when Ju-Ju's bike was stolen?

Tomlin: "It's irrelevant whether or not his gripe is legitimate"

Sounds like he agrees with #10 that his owner picked OC is a moron.

What it sounds like is he shouldn’t use social media to air grievances. Would you please give it up?

Tomlin said that too.

But's also very telling that he used the legitimate point also.

This team is a mess.

Ben hates Haley.

Brown REALLY hates Haley.

Bryant wants out.

Jesse James yelled at Danny Smith after that first half FG to the point that DeCastro had to restrain him.

And somehow they are 5-2.

And #1 AFC seed. The real test will come against the Cheatriots and the Packers (even without Rogers).

Maybe things are not as bad as you suggest, but, there still is a lot of ball left to play this year. Plenary of time to implode. Right?

Ben wants Bryant to get the football.

Bryant's on the Scout team today.

Just cut him then.

He should have thrown a water cooler and embarrassed Ben on the field.  

Worked for aME.

Haley misses the team flight to Baltimore.

He coached.

Haley was in a bar at 2:30 AM prior to a 1 PM start.

He coached.

Haley was sued twice in mere months.

He's still here.

Bryant's done, he'll be traded before the deadline.

All so Toddy (The REAL head coach) can run his garbage offense.

Do you ever talk about anything other than how bad Todd Haley is? You've become so one-note it's disgusting. Even the debate about the anthem wasn't as bad as this; even though I disagreed with the conservative point of view (and still do), they at least have legitimate reasons for feeling the way they do; they served in the military or knew someone who did. What the hell did Haley ever do to you? You sound like he beat you out for something and you haven't gotten over it. Grow up and stop whining, for God's sake!

I just see the double standard.

If Bryant was a scrub tight end he doesn't sit.

This just gives Haley his excuse.

Where was Tomlin's "discipline" when Hines Ward called out Roethlisberger, basically called him a coward for not lying about a concussion in 2009? Why didn't Ward sit?

Where was Tomlin when aME complained during the Ravens game? Or the numerous times over the years he's shown up his quarterback when he throws his arms up when #7 dare throw to someone else?

Where was Tomlin when Bell complained 2 weeks ago?

If they don't want Bryant just cut him then and move on.

I do remeber posting about that as well. I believe it was a season opener. Dude was smoked on the bar stool, they had photos poseted at P-S.

Amongst all his other problems he's also a sot.

Season opener in 2013.

That was the same game he had the wrong people on the field in the red zone and he had 7 straight touches for Lerod Stephens-Howling. LOL

Got demoted and yet somehow kept his job.

How sad.

Just saw the locker room interview with Bryant. Came across as a self absorbed unrepentant jack#ss.

That said, he isn’t the first player that didn’t want to be here because of how they were being used, or having issues with coaches.

“It is with it is, just got to keep working, and movin’ on”. Well, what he’s working on isn’t, but it appears he got the other two points down. It is what it is and likely will be moving on.

Martavis Bryant to be inactive for Steelers vs. Lions

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000...s-vs-lions


Martavis Bryant's demand for more playing time has fallen on deaf ears.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that the unhappy Steelers wideout was informed by team brass that he will be inactive for Sunday night's game against the Detroit Lions.

"conservative point of view"??

The issue is about respecting the flag.  Kaepernick said that himself, "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that <his particular grievance>"

I'm a member of the "flag wavers and military kiss-ass" club, and think the organization should have it's employees follow US Code guidance on showing respect for the national colors.  

Individual rights have nothing to do which THIS issue.  I'm a consumer asking the business that provides me my product to provide it in such a way I'm willing to pay for.

How in the hell is that a "conservative point of view"??  Does everything have to be politicized?

Take care in calling anyone 'one-note' before looking in the mirror.
