That collective thud you hear? It’s the masses jumping off the Steelers’ bandwagon after Sunday’s lashing at the hands of the Ravens.
NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp stopped by “The Dan Patrick Show” to provide his take on Pittsburgh’s tumultuous debut.
“They’re old and slow,” said Sapp, adding that he saw “old, ornery veterans get whooped” up and down the field (and complaining about chop blocks).
Sapp also weighed in on Ochocinco’s awe of Tom Brady and the Patriots’ attack and backed what other ex-players have said.
“Listen, you have to understand something. When your quarterback is out putting up the fifth-greatest passing day in the history of this great league that we love … Ocho’s on the sideline being a cheerleader,” Sapp said. “Come on, stop that. Get in your playbook, learn the plays, get out there and get some of that. You have Tom Brady as your quarterback. You said it’s heaven. Heaven’s not a place to sit around. Heaven’s a place where you get your wings and fly.”
Sapp continued his riff: “Listen! When you heard Tom Brady say (Ocho) was cramming and it was months after he had been there. You’re like, cramming? … Listen, Dan, we’re not building rockets after practice. … A lot of us majored in eligibility.”
