JuJu Smith-Schuster has come into his own and become one of the top young wide receivers in the NFL as of late.

With his talent it is inevitable that he will be compared to other great receivers in the game, from the past and present. One of those he was compared to was Antonio Brown this past weekend.

I am sure many of us can agree that Brown was one of the best receivers in the NFL. I say was because he is basically retired right now, even though he flips and flops on if he will return to the league depending on the hour of the day.

However, the last few months has shown how much of a mess he currently is with multiple issues, especially with trying to get along with others. Most first graders can get on better with teammates than Brown can. Since the beginning of this year, Brown has burned bridges with the Pittsburgh Steelers, thrown jabs at former teammates, intentionally got himself released from the Oakland Raiders and been accused by a pair of women alleging sexual assault.

One of the teammates he went after on social media was his replacement, Smith-Schuster. He called him out for his untimely fumble that contributed to the Steelers missing last year’s post season, and then oddly shared screenshots of a time when Smith-Schuster was in college and asked Brown for advice and guidance.

I am still scratching my head at why he felt the need to share the screenshots though, but Smith-Schuster took it all in stride and handled it well for a 22-year old.

Then this past weekend Jalen Ramsey, another outspoken player in the NFL, summed up his upcoming matchup with Smith-Schuster by saying “No disrespect to him, he’s not Antonio Brown”.

The Pittsburgh wide receiver was asked if the comments were extra motivation headed into the game. He handled the comments with a lot more class than Brown ever showed by saying that Ramsey was “right though.”

He continued, “I’m not Antonio Brown. I’ll never be Antonio Brown. I am myself. I’m JuJu Smith-Schuster. I’m not as good as him yet. I think I still have time to proceed to get to his level. But we’re two totally different persons.”

The young man could have taken what could be described as a perceived diss and flipped it around into self-improvement.

During the game, the wideout heard a lot from the talkative Rams corner. "He talks a lot," Smith-Schuster said of Ramsey. "He talks so much. He said so many cuss words I've never heard of, and I'm 22 years old. He's a good player, man.”

While Smith-Schuster only had three catches in the game for 22 yards, he and the Steelers came away with the dub in a very sloppy offensive game.
