JuJu Smith Schuster surprised to be recognized in London

The guy who figures to catch a lot of passes from Big Ben was surprised to be recognized in the shadow of the original Big Ben this week.

Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster was part of the NFL’s outreach event in London this week,

I was surprised to know how many people know me,” he said, via Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “People come up to me and show love. They’re like, ‘You’re actually here.’ That’s happened like four, five, six times since I’ve been here.”

Smith-Schuster better get used to the attention. With Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell gone, he’s going to become the main target for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, and carry a much bigger public profile. That is likely fine with the outgoing Smith-Schuster, who enjoyed playing tourist before returning home to get ready for training camp.

“Yes, it’s my first trip to the U.K., and, yes, I saw Big Ben, but it’s under construction,” he said. “I’m going to take a picture of it and send it to Ben.”

There was no word how long he was stuck in the traffic circle, and how many times he saw Parliament.

    Diva- a self-assured player who understands that he has a massive impact on winning and wants to badly. He also isn’t afraid of showing emotion.

    Although there are many definitions for the word “Diva”, I’ve never heard a positive one used to describe a Diva football player. Most use a different, PFT unprintable, term to for that definition. LOL

  5. Time will tell if he puts up” monster numbers”, since now that he’s the offense he’s going to be double teamed, just like Gronk was. Oh that’s right, for some reason when ever Gronk played against Pittsburgh they left him uncovered. That was always weird. Don’t expect that to happen with JuJu.!

    We don’t have traffic circles. We have roundabouts.

    In “New” England they are rotaries.

    “Diva” is pseudonymous with “self absorbed and narcissistic”. It’s not about talent or wanting to win at all. Larry Fitzgerald is a self-assured player who understands he has a massive impact on winning and wants to badly. He also isn’t afraid of showing emotion. But he’s no diva.

    OBJ says he’s all those other things. Whether he is or not, he is definitely self absorbed and narcissistic, which makes him definitely a diva.

    He’s very talented and he’s tough. Any WR can be taken out of a game if they are the only option, so who knows about monster numbers. However, he’s more cut from the Hines Ward mold than the AB mold, which is good for the Steelers.

  9. This guy’s obsession with his own popularity confirms he’s on track to be the next egomaniac to poison the Steelers’ locker room. JuJu Smith Fumble seems to have forgotten how to be humble. Maybe watching a replay of the NO game will help.
