According to former NFL superstar and current NFL analyst Shannon Sharp, players find additional motivation by being humiliated by their opponents.
Sharp was undisputed on his show and made it clear that the pregame Tikkots oppose the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster team logo and is outrageous and it provides additional motivation to those teams.
This is a point disputed by Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin in his press conference, noting that he does not believe the players care about what Smith-Shuster is doing on the field in their games.
Cincinnati Bengals safety Vonn Bell probably disagreed with the claim after burning Smith-Shuster in midfield last week.
If the whole issue airs this way, it would be best for the Steelers to take precautions and just be a Smith-Schuster stop. But I want to ask you questions. Do you think Smith-Shuster’s dances inspire opposing teams and should they be stopped? Tell us
