Browns, Steelers, Kyrie discussed on CBS Sports Radio
You want to be respectful of other people's mental health. And as an employer, you wanna be respectable for other people's mental health. So if it was something along the lines of hay after what happened on Wednesday, I really took it hard. You know, I just need I need a few days to get my head together. Um, you know, I really appreciate it. You know, if I could get a few days to get my head together, I'll be back. You know, with the team on Sunday. That's you know, I need a few person I know in the realm of sports. We don't think of personal days that way. They only play 72 games and I get it. I do get even the reaction to that. But I would understand that I'd be much more understanding of that than, um, a passive aggressive way of doing it. Of just like, Oh, I'm I'm not showing up s O. It depends on what went on behind the scenes. But I think yes, you have to consider that depending on what the level of communication was and how it actually played out. But that's part of the problem is we're left to speculate so much, and I can't in good faith or good consciousness render like a definitive take or statement about any of it without Actually knowing what took place and and how it went down 855 to 1 to 4 to 27855 to 1 to 4 to 27 at Robin Lundberg on Twitter. I mean, either way, the team is left to answer for him. The coaches have to answer for him. The team has left to play without him. He's now missed every game. Durant is missed the one that went over the sixes. Uh, the other night. And you know, one of the game's even without the man was the second of a back to back when it was announced the night before Durant wouldn't play. In the back, the back which you get cause of the Achilles and then all of a sudden, Kyrie didn't play. On and then now, same thing here, you know, Durant misses the one game, Kerry was brilliant. In that first game that Durant was out against the jazz and then carry is AWOL. And this guy is I mean, he's since I I can't say that enough. I'm a Mets fan broken. That's fine, and I have been watching all their games closely. This guy's brilliant. I mean, I've watched his whole career. I mean, I see what he did with the Cavs. Obviously. Uh, And everything. He's brilliant on the court, but it's certainly frustrating that it seems like they're whether this one is justified or not, or or people understand his reasoning or not. It seems like there is a Every several weeks. There is some sort of Incident or situation with him on, you know, like there's a How do I say this artfully without? You know, again? Ah, I don't want to, um, speculate too much on on anybody's individual status or state of mind or anything, but it does seem as if there are Swings. And in Kyrie, where he can be Very, very forthcoming and engaging and sharp and all the stuff, he says on Bleich, a ble and then he could be so. Isolated and short. And You know? Call people pawns on in these instagram message is like it seems that could be highs and lows. Um, and that has been a bit of a pattern. With with Kyrie. Let's go Toe Alan in Toronto. Alan, You're up next here on CBS Sports Radio. What's up? Longtime Steelers fan, you know, goes way back to the days of Brad's charge. Franco Harris, Rocky Bleier. Every finger is pointing, twisting Gorge victory, and the game is in the Steelers house in the Browns during a 17 game losing streak of Heinz defense. He's on the sideline and so's a job. Antonio and the Steelers are adapted creating, and, uh it's turnovers. Mayfield was sacked four times last week with that, with the two best passwords you on the sidelines and big Ben will be fresh. I still don't really shame on them that they'll be firing up. They want to get paid back for the last week. So it Z. I'm looking forward to it, and they just have to look when you say. Right? I think something just actually got play Good. They have to put the break from chub Lynn Hunter. That's where the Bronx have them on the ground game. That's it. That's the only thing that they have in mind. But the problems we're going to be, you know, it's a shame that the first time they're they're in the playoffs in 18 years, and I'm sorry to be Oh spoiler. Brown's Reeves a victory, but it looks like Steelers. All the way and I'm looking forward to it because I understand where is ringing? Hey, Alan. I'm not picking it against the Steelers. Uh, that's for sure. Not just because of the Browns coach is out, but the rest of Brown's first playoff appearance in 18 years. It's really well when you think about 18 years. I was. I guess I'm old. Now that I was going to say I was only I was 21 18 years ago. Uh, so I guess I was older than you. Do you think I was in college, though. The last time the Browns made a play, I don't even remember. I can't remember the Browns being a playoff game. No, I can't. I can't even like if I'm trying to like picture a Browns playoff game. I can't think Think of one Is there one I'm missing? And maybe I'm being like, try. I just can't think of a time I watched the Browns in the playoffs. It doesn't mean that I don't remember a memorable Cleveland Browns performance in my entire life. Not one. Not one significant, like stand out Cleveland browns performance or moment or game that like, Oh, yeah, I remember where I was when I saw the Browns to do this. Let's go to David and Green Bay. David, you're up next here on CBS Sports Radio. Very good morning, Robin. Happy New Year, Um I want to go back to the Shawn Watson.
