Martavis Bryant 2 carries for 40 yarda and 9 rec for 154...

yards. Contrary to popular belief on tnet, Bryant leaving early didn't hurt him. And he ended up with one of the best organizations in the NFL and a great QB to catch passes from.

And he's got what has gone down as the 5th best postseason catch of all time.


It was a risk that worked out well for him.

No, his hate for Cole Stoudt,in his mind is justified, he's white and that makes him fair game because everyone knows hating whites doesn't qualify as racist. It works for both queenie and Obama.


GTFO you POS. Didn't say a negative thing about Stoudt...

I was comparing him to another white guy you fing moron. Or do you think Ben Roethlisburger is black? Your God #### politics have nothing to do with this issue, you right wing rump wrangler.

He's also a racist, don't worry about him

I didn't bash Stoudt. It's a fact he wasn't good enough to be a starter. That's not the same case with Bryant. Bryant was talented and produced in more than one game. Not every player that gets to start is good.

Never was any risk, he was faster and 4" taller than Sammy

He was legit and Clemson coaches and Tajh wasted his talent ... and it cost us games.

No risk ? He has always loved smoking WEED .

"The four-game suspension for Bryant suggests he’s been caught breaking the league’s policy more than once. If he fails another test, he’ll be suspended for 10 games"

So Usain Bolt would be the greatest wide receiver in history?

Bryant does not have very good hands and it cost him at Clemson.

Yes Tajh Boyd, who holds pretty much every ACC record and threw the prettiest deep ball, wasted his talent because of his terrible route running.

2019 student level member

that's not true, Bryant had some minor focus issues his first two years...

[1]
Posted: Jan 18, 2016 9:41 AM
 

And Tajh did spread the ball around. Sammy was uncoverable in college, so Tajh never really had to force it. Bryant was also behind Hopkins and Brown his first two seasons. Bryant just took longer to reach his potential. Not every highly rated player is going to come in and have the impact Sammy and Deshaun has had. The reason so many posters on here bash and hate Bryant was because he didn't develop as fast as Sammy.

Leaving early didn't hurt him you say ?


Martavis Bryant 4th round pick CONTRACT:4 yr(s) / $2,659,220

Sammy Watkins 1st round CONTRACT:4 yr(s) / $19,935,603

DeAndre Hopkins 1st round CONTRACT:4 yr(s) / $7,626,702


Oh he will being getting paid good very soon....

I know you're normally dumb, but stop being so dumb to realize you're simply wrong.

So which benefited him more playing with Roethlisburger...

Posted: Jan 17, 2016 8:39 PM
 

last season, or playing with Cole Stoudt as the starting QB for most of last season?

Is that why Mike Williams had 1030 yards & 6 TD and projected for the 1st round in 2016 Draft or no ?


If..IF... IF.. bryant staid. Cole stout is all American

And Clemson wins the nc.

Meanwhile up in Pitt. Rothumburger rapes another woman.


Leaving early...

Posted: Jan 17, 2016 9:09 PM
 

probably cost MB a few $M, but he will end up making it back by and by if he can stay off the ganj long enough and Big Ben can stay healthy a few more seasons. As we've seen with Sammy in Buffalo, having a good QB dealing makes a world of difference along with staying healthy. With Brown out, MB was the go-to guy.

I think most people were talking about his draft status

Posted: Jan 17, 2016 8:09 PM
 

when they said he was leaving too early. No one doubted he has the physical tools to be a great pro WR. But he could've been a first rounder if he had stuck around one more year and been the featured WR at Clemson.

At any rate, he'd have been drafted higher than the 4th and be making a lot more money doing exactly as well as he's doing now.

Yeah a year with the prolific Cole Stoudt would have rocketed him up!! With the career he's building, he's bout to get paid!! If he came back and got injured, who knows?

To Pittsburgh Steelers. Big Ben doesn't have a lot of time left.


That would certainly be better fortune...

for MB than what Sammy has had to deal with in Buffalo. Manuel is a bust and Crankcase Taylor ain't much better.

Proud of #10. He had a great season. Glad to see him step up in Browns absence today. Hope the coaches took notice

Ben threw a lot of crappy passes too though... If he could have dialed in half of them, they would have won that game. Bryant had an incredible game.


Ummm, what?! Crappy passes?

[1]
Posted: Jan 17, 2016 9:21 PM
 

You're joking. I get it.


Re: Ummm, what?! Crappy passes?

[1]
Posted: Jan 17, 2016 10:26 PM
 

Did we watch the same game? He threw 64%. And Bryant, Heyward-Bey, Coates & Wheaton make a lot of those catches look a lot better than they are. That last drive? 2nd & 5, 3rd & 5, 4th & 5 - he threw the same crappy dump over the middle for zero yards. I hope he wasn't the one calling all the plays.


Big Ben was off pretty bad today bc of his shoulder injury

[1]
Posted: Jan 17, 2016 11:36 PM
 

He wasn't even supposed to play today, but they gave him a shot to numb his arm so that he could go out and play.


Maybe his passes didn't look quite as bad because Peyton Manning was throwing passes for the Broncos with an arm that has been even deader all year long than Ben's was today.

Back when I gave Martavis love on T-Net, very few did ...

[1]
Posted: Jan 17, 2016 9:17 PM
 

He was regularly ripped on T-Net. Too many drops. Tajh could not trust him. etc.

What I saw was Clemson lose at least 2 TD's a game through Martavis running 10 yds in the open on multiple plays each game, and Tajh forcing it to Sammy or elsewhere. Yes, in those days, Tajh was a star and Martavis was lucky to be on the team to hear T-Net wisdom. Turns out T-Net was very wrong. In fact, Tajh was a good player and Martavis was a very underutilized superstar whose lack of use cost us games. And as it turned out in the NFL, Martavis became a Steeler star and Tajh could not make the team or any team as a 3rd stringer.

Do not get them all right, but this one was a no-brainer. Really looking forward to Mike Williams' healthy return next season ... Deshaun will utilize him and put touch on those pinpoint bombs.

2019 purple level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

so to counter Bryant bashing, you bash Tajh....

Posted: Jan 18, 2016 9:43 AM
 

Whole point of my post was how ridiculous it is to bash players who have helped us win a lot of games over the past 5 years

badge-donor-05yr.jpg

I'm with you on this one. Would he have made more money

[2]
Posted: Jan 17, 2016 10:45 PM
 

if he'd come back for another year? Maybe, if he'd stayed healthy, and if he'd had a big year. In the end though, there was more than that going into that decision for Martavis, and it may very well have been the right thing for him, at that time. While it could possibly have worked out better money-wise, he's done very, very well, and will do very well in that department going forward. I doubt he has any regrets.
