Marquise Brown throwing the Ravens under all 18-wheels of the bus won’t help soothe Sunday’s loss.
If the Baltimore Ravens losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday wasn’t bad enough, Hollywood Brown isn’t making things any better.
The Ravens receiver took to Twitter and put his team on blast, seemingly accusing his team of not using their best players in crunch time.
Let’s break this down quick, because there’s a lot going on and more than a few notable people Brown is firing into the core of the sun.
By tweeting out what he did, Brown was essentially saying all of the following people are trash:
- John Harbaugh
- Lamar Jackson
- All of the players who were instrumental to getting into a position to win
- The defense
It’s hard to pick out which one of those is the worst to call out. Lamar Jackson took the final play of the game, which he fell short of a game-extending first down inside of the red zone. Harbaugh was behind the play calling that got them there and the rest of the team seemed to be playing hard enough to try and erase a 28-24 deficit and win it at the end.
But none of that was good enough for Brown, apparently.
Keep in mind this is the Ravens second loss of the season, and they lost by less than a touchdown, so it’s not as though they’re backed into some sort of a corner after Sunday. The loss is less than helpful in a tight AFC playoff race, and losing a rivalry game as close as this one was is obviously going to ruffle up some emotions, but this is the sort of toxic reaction that happens to a losing team not the Ravens.
Baltimore falls further behind the Steelers for the AFC North crown and now seem like a long shot to catch the Chiefs for the No. 1 seed in the conference. These are all bad things, but the nature of the game shouldn’t spark the reaction that Brown initially had, even if it was a heat-of-the-moment.
Brown deleted his tweet, thus taking what he said back. But the internet always has receipts and this is a peak behind the curtain that Baltimore probably would have rather we not all seen.
