Ryan Clark RIPS Chase Claypool For ‘Self-Centeredness’ In TNF Loss

Ryan Clark, like many Pittsburgh Steelers fans, had plenty of harsh words for Chase Claypool after the team’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday Night Football.

Claypool had a series of mental mistakes that cost his team throughout the night, including a ridiculous 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and his costly taunting which allowed seconds to run off of the clock on a potential game-tying drive.

Clark sounded off on the star wide receiver Friday morning on ESPN’s Get Up!, ripping Claypool for being “emotionally underdeveloped” and allowing his “self-centeredness” to cost his team in crunch time.

“Chase Claypool is as mentally and emotionally underdeveloped as he is physically overdeveloped,” Clark said. “He only cares about himself! And that self-centeredness is part of what’s bringing the Steelers team and organization down.”

Without Claypool’s showboating, the Steelers could very well have had another shot or two at the endzone after tight end Pat Friermuth dropped a touchdown on the final play of the game.

Claypool led the Steelers with eight receptions for 93 yards, but his game will be remembered for all of the wrong reasons.

We will have to see if Claypool can redeem himself next week against the Tennessee Titans.
