Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster was getting badly mocked in the Cleveland locker room after the Browns’ 48-37 playoff victory over the rival Steelers on Sunday night, replicating his now infamous ‘Corvette, Corvette’ dance, and trolling his pregame blasts at the Browns.
Smith-Schuster had become notorious for his weekly TikTok videos of him dancing on the opponent’s logo prior to games, before stopping the dances after Pittsburgh’s Week 16 loss against the lowly Bengals when he got blown up by Cincy safety Von Bell in an embarrassing fumble, and only account for just three catches and 15 yards on a nationally televised Monday Night Football game.
Even worse than the dances were his comments during the week about how the 2020 Browns were effectively the ‘same old Browns’ that they’ve always been:
“I think they’re still the same Browns teams I play every year. I think they’re nameless gray faces. They have a couple good players on their team, but at the end of the day the Browns is the Browns."
Smith-Schuster did catch 13 passes for 157 yards and a touchdown vs. Cleveland, but mostly against a consenting Browns prevent defense after Cleveland sprinted out to a 28-0 lead.
The Browns players certainly had a message they wanted to deliver JuJu after arguably the biggest win in franchise history, and their first win in Pittsburgh since 2003.
