Now I know what you’re wondering. “Steven, are you gonna write a post every single damned time Jaylen Samuels scores a touchdown?” You damned straight. Have a look at this one:

New Orleans made a huge mistake out of this play, and JaySam made an easy peel for a wide open touchdown. Sometimes football is easy, and this was one of those times. If there’s a comedy to any of this, it’s Pittsburgh’s continued insistence on using Stevan Ridley, who might be good—who knows, really—but is not Jaylen Samuels.
Let Jaylen Samuels cook. Football is not that complicated. But look I get it, it’s not easy to trust a rookie. I understand that. And with that said, if you can’t trust Jaylen, then you haven’t watched an ounce of his college career, and if that’s the case, then how are you employed by an NFL team?
Sorry, I’m still attempting to come to terms with how the NFL is going to waste Jaylen Samuels. It’s gonna take me a minute.
