JuJu Smith-Schuster: Jalen Ramsey’s right, I’m not Antonio Brown

In the days leading up to Sunday’s game against the Steelers, Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey shared his opinion that Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster isn’t the same kind of threat that Antonio Brown was when he roamed football fields rather than the social media universe.

Smith-Schuster may not be Brown, but the Rams paid him close attention in Sunday’s 17-12 loss. Smith-Schuster saw frequent double teams while catching three of six targets for 44 yards and quarterback Mason Rudolph credited the wideout with creating chances for others due to the close attention.

Smith-Schuster benefitted from that when he was Brown’s running mate, but he didn’t have any quarrel with Ramsey’s comments after the game.

“He’s right, though, I’m not Antonio Brown,” Smith-Schuster told reporters after the game. “I will never be Antonio Brown. I am myself. I’m JuJu Smith-Schuster. I’m not as good as him yet. I think I still have time to proceed to get to his level.”

Smith-Schuster shared something else about what it is like being the No. 1 receiver in a game with Ramsey on the other side.

“He talks a lot. He talks so much,” Smith-Schuster said. “He said so many cuss words I’ve never heard of and I’m 22 years old. He’s a good player.”

Smith-Schuster will bring his new vocabulary with him to Cleveland on Thursday night as the Steelers try to run their winning streak to five games.

  1. The seven Minute Drive in 4th qt was a work of art … would have been better if td… but still the coffin closer

  2. Juju seems like a real nice kid, but say what you want about AB he had the will to be great and a chip on his shoulder and was constantly improving at his craft. I’m not sure if Juju has that drive and tiger blood in him like AB. Time will tell.

  3. Thank you Rams for giving my team all those draft picks for that immature train wreck of a personality.

    I bet his back pain started to flare up as soon as he saw Bortles on the field yesterday.

  4. For someone who pretends to be so humble, there sure are a lot of quotes from JuJu Smith-Blabbermouth. I don’t see where Brown says a single thing. Also, bad mouthing a former teammate is poor form and won’t earn you any respect.

  5. Thank God we do not need two Brown’s. Brown with all the info out there on how he treated people on and especially off the field should be looking through bars but that is the benefit being a so called entertainer gets you

    Well, clearly you are an expert on making comments that don’t earn you a heck of a lot of respect. I’ll definitely give you that 😉

    Don’t see anywhere in this post a negative comment about Brown by Smith-Shuster, so what your saying is factually untrue as it relates to this post.

    For starters, he didn’t bad mouth at all, as a matter of fact he complimented him. This comment about Brown was in response to Ramsey. Ramsey was trash talking JuJu about him not being as good as Brown.

    Do you even read the articles before throwing out troll comments? He didn’t say a single negative thing about AB.
