Steelers HC Mike Tomlin sends message to team after JuJu Smith-Schuster's milk crate challenge

JuJu Smith-Schuster continues to make headlines for the wrong reasons.

The Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver attempted the dangerous milk crate challenge earlier this week with the NFL regular season being less than two weeks away. He could've been seriously injured, and Mike Tomlin isn't happy about it.

The 24-year-old was also criticized last season for constantly using the popular social media app TikTok. After the Steelers would beat a team away from Heinz Field, Smith-Schuster would dance on the opposing team's logo, which is highly disrespectful.

Once fans started begging for him to stop, the Steelers told Smith-Schuster to put an end to the antics. Clearly, he hasn't listened, as he frequently posts on TikTok.

Smith-Schuster is entering his fifth season in the NFL. In 16 games last year, he had 97 catches for 831 yards and nine touchdowns. The Steelers will be hoping he can eclipse the 1,000-yard mark in 2021, which he has only done once in his career.

Just another example of what happens when athletes gain some fame and fortune. His innocence since his first year, like riding his bike to practice, has been corrupted by that fame and fortune. Grow up, John Sherman Smith-Schuster. Time to mature is overdue. Juju might have been a cute name in your youth, but as an adult not so cute. Guess he’s caught that “wide receiver syndrome”. The disease that seems to affect their common sense and dignity. Mo’ money, mo’ money. Hope we don’t have have another AB hatching.


His ignorance shows he has never had any discipline. One day the chickens will come home to roost and it may be to late.
