Chase Claypool gives Browns a little extra motivation for the next round

USA TODAY Sports

The Chiefs do not want to hold Chase Claypool‘s beer.

Last week, Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster stirred up the Browns with an unforced error that will resonate through the years in the Cleveland-Pittsburgh rivalry. This week, Claypool already has thrown some gasoline on a fire that the Steelers will now watch from afar.

“Bad loss, but Browns are gonna clapped next week, so it’s all good,” Claypool said in a social-media video today.

Will that stir the Browns? Possibly. But it will be hard to twist that into motivation against a team other than the Steelers. Unless the Browns convince themselves that Claypool’s attitude reflects everyone’s attitude, including the attitude of players on the Chiefs.

The Chiefs are heavy favorites to win the game. The talent gap between the Chiefs and Browns may not be as great as believed, however. Also, and as Hall of Fame head coach Tony Dungy pointed out last night, the Chiefs likely didn’t spend much of their bye week doing advance preparation for the Browns.

If so, that’s an advantage (albeit slim) for Cleveland. They’ll need every advantage they can get if they’re going to pull off what would be one of the biggest wins the Browns have ever had.

  1. The browns are gonna clapped? We needs translations for some of these guys in your articles. What does that even mean?

  2. I doubt they didn’t spend time looking at the Browns film- the Steelers looked poor for the last 4-6 weeks. The Browns win wasn’t a huge upset.

  3. Sour grapes? What is with all of these diva receivers from Pittsburgh over the years? Do they have any class at all?

  4. Boy those Steeler’s sure are a butthurt bunch, no matter they can stew all off-season and reflect on that mirage of a 11-0 start and knowing that those same old Browns put an end to their fluke of a season

  5. Carrying on the long Steeler tradition of stupid, diva WRs. He’s going to fit right in.

  6. Not sure what his point is, I mean, the Steelers got “Clapped” this week so what he’s saying makes zero sense.

  7. I can’t believe Tomlin let’s these two idiots run there mouths. I thought he wasn’t about stupidity. Chase… ya lost… bad… so shut up and enjoy the couch.

  8. The Steelers have the youngest receiver core in the NFL with their top 4 in the league 4 years or less. And I think that their next 2 are also in that range. They are immature and entitled millennials. Tomlin needs to send them for a timeout.

  9. It just shows how humiliated the Steelers are for losing that game last night. They were so sure they were going to win. They were just going to walk in and whup some behind on the Browns and head to Buffalo to play a “real” playoff team. Instead, it’s the Browns going to Arrowhead to play a “real” playoff team not some wanna be who thinks they are way better than they really are.

    I’m sure this stuff doesn’t go out without Tomlin’s direct or indirect approval which is why he’s not an elite coach. If he was, he’d keep his guys in line and they would have been ready and prepared to play last night which clearly they weren’t.

    Even though I don’t like Nick Saban, one thing he said years ago that I totally agree with. He said the moment you believe your opponent can’t beat you, you’ve already lost. Amen…

  10. First “Mr. Tik Tok” causes issues with his feet and his mouth. Not to be outdone, now Clayfool feels he has to run his mouth. A loss like that should be humbling. That statement you made just makes you’re suffering from a huge case of sour grapes. Stay classy.

  11. He’s right! The chiefs will do what the steelers should have done. It just too bad ther Steelers are dealing with an inept coach. Tomlin couldn’t coach defense if he had an all pro team in front of him.

  12. These TikTok receivers are the worst. Gotta respect a team like the Chiefs who get it done and don’t really talk publicly.

  13. If Big Ben can throw for 500 yards and 4 TD’s against the Browns what do you think Mahomes will do? I know Mahomes isn’t going to throw 4 picks.

  14. Remember when Claypool had 10 tds in his first 10 games? Then defenses started paying attention to him and he disappeared like Jimmy Hoffa. I don’t recall him having any impact at all yesterday against Cleveland’s thin secondary.

    ______________

    The Browns were playing prevent defense in the second quarter because that’s when the Steelers decided to start playing.

    The Chiefs will likely put up a lot of yards and points. Cleveland put up at least 37 points 5 times this season. The Chiefs only did that once.

  16. The chiefs are poorly coached and likely have only studied who they think would win…. Have you heard of Andy Reid? Current SB champion with the biggest named QB in the league? Who writes this stuff?

    ——————————
    Ben also threw the ball 68 times. Mahomes ain’t doing that either. As for Claypool… grow up!!!

  18. Ummm…Big Ben threw for 500 yards because Cleveland was in the PREVENT D from the 2nd Quarter on. They gave up everything underneath…10-15 yards. Didn’t want to get beat over the top.

    Stop with the 500 yards…4 TDs…

    Chiefs might win, but Cleveland will make them earn it. Chubb/Hunt Train will get rolling for sure against the 31st RUN D.

  19. What ever happened to PFT? This used to be a site frequented by knowledgeable fans from all teams now all that post are immature fanboys with very limited knowledge of the game and maturity. To make a big issue of Claypoolscomments is more immature than the comment itself. The originator just lost a game that he was very emotionally involved in and was just that an emotional reaction that wasn’t needed…..surely you fanboys would understand misplaced emotions…..right ? Grow the F up.

  20. While I agree with allot of the comments on here about just shutting up and playing the game, Steeles got beat period. What I do take issue with is the fans on here criticizing some dumb comments from immature players. JuJu is a class act and does AALOT for the community. We will have to wait and see what Chase does while maturing. Cleveland fans please dodn’t forget, you have OBJ. Is there a more “stupid”, “immature”, “diva” WR in the league? Maybe, but he is at the top of the list. And please don’t forget Kareem Hunt…
    Leave it on the field. All of us arm chair quarterbacks should self reflect every once in a while…
    Just sayin’.

  21. Congrats to the Clowns for winning their first playoff gm since the Reagan administration. I’m sure they will beat a rested KC juggernaut.
