According to former NFL star and current NFL analyst Shannon Sharpe, players find extra motivation for being disrespected by their opponents.
Sharpe was on his Undisputed program and made it clear that the wide receiver of the TikToks Pittsburgh Steelers that JuJu Smith-Schuster makes on the opposing team’s logos is disrespectful and provides extra motivation for those teams.
This is a point that Steelers coach Mike Tomlin contested in his press conferences, noting that he does not believe that players care enough about what Smith-Schuster is doing to take this to the field in his game.
Cincinnati Bengals safety Vonn Bell probably disagrees with that statement after hitting Smith-Schuster in midfield last week.
If the whole issue is up in the air like this, the Steelers would be better off to err on the side of caution and just stop Smith-Schuster. But I want to pass the question on to you. Do you think Smith-Schuster dances motivate opposing teams and he should stop? Inform us.
