‘Hard Knocks’ ratings spike in Pittsburgh

AB takes notice

Brown saw a report of the news on Twitter and had his own personal take on what the ratings mean.

Sure. Pittsburgh is most assuredly still thinking of Brown. But like much of the rest of the nation of NFL fans, those thoughts aren’t of admiration or longing.
