Maths ain’t hard.
Not to mention the article linked in the OP clearly states the following...
Ur funny Man you think just because you have been on this forum longer it makes you inherently more knowledgeable haha? Ur nothing more then a troll it’s irrelevant whatever you say nobody on this forum could care less. Focus on ur own team, a team that is better off then the Panthers currently. Yet, we both know that’s not saying much so the Steelers are still trash; and will accomplish nothing In the next 3 years and will be forced to go through the same process the Panthers are going through rn. So enjoy watching ur team accomplish nothing and be years behind the Panthers in any sort of chance to win a ring any time soon!
