Smith-Schuster era in disparte per rivedere un gioco sul tablet e ha lanciato il dispositivo con rabbia su ciò che ha visto e si è messo la testa tra le mani.
Dopo la partita, he was asked what made him react the way he did.
“Sono umano. I have feelings. I was on the sideline, I got upset with myself, because I make those plays. I never show emotion on the sidelines, just because I know that I’m always being watched. A game like this, in a critical time and situation like that, I’m frustrated with myself. I’m not mad at the team, I’m not mad at the play-calling, I’m not mad at Ben for making the throw. It’s all on me,” Egli ha detto, tramite il Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Smith-Schuster was targeted eight times during the game but only had two catches. Ben Roethlisberger was criticized for overthrowing Smith-Schuster as well. The wide receiver finished with two catches for 11 yard.
The Pro Bowl wide receiver has 15 catture per 129 yards this season. He has not found the back of the end zone.
Pittsburgh lost to the Packers, 27-17, and have lost three consecutive games.
