With all the screwups in the Cowboys game, the last play where Antonio Brown ran out of bounds at the Cowboys 20 rather than engage in some presumably doomed attempt to keep the play alive was just one more screwup

But it was noteworthy that in his press conference today Tomlin appeared to call Brown out for that play



AB is a potential HOF talent, but for whatever reason this year he seems to have gone to a divisive diva level by continuing to force issues after he knows the refs are not going to tolerate it (the twerking TD celebrations, the special shoes that got to the point Tomlin ordered him to take them off after a ref said he would not play if he kept them on).

Ron Cook adds some observations I have not personally seen (I was traveling and missed the Miami game)

Brown has gotten away with more than just celebration penalties this season. He often runs the wrong patterns. He jogged back to the line of scrimmage in the Miami game when the offense was trying to run its 2-minute offense, presumably because he wasn’t happy with the number of throws coming his way.

For whatever reason it appears Tomlin finally has had enough

If Brown responds by joining in with Ben's previous comments challenging how the team is being coached look out

Tomlin loosing the locker room?
If they lose to the clowns that coaching seat is going to a lot warmer.

AB crossed my line a long time ago with all those celebrations.

If you want to do that shit do it your own sideline, its embarrassing.

As for running out of bounds, that was a chicken shit move.

It was more like he was running up his yard total than trying to win a game.

Or was worried about getting a booboo.

Tomlin's talk with Brown about running out of bounds on the play that ended the Cowboys game clearly had an impact on Antonio Rolling Eyes

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Antonio Brown should not have run out of bounds on the final play of the game when the Steelers trailed the Cowboys by five points. He said he had a conversation with Brown about it, but Brown said Tuesday night on his radio show on 102.5 WDVE that he cannot recall such a conversation taking place.

I think the media is taking a lot of liberties with these stories about players interactions with the coaches. I think there is a divide right now, caused by mistakes and losing. Winning can cure that. Need to string together some W's.

with all the shit play that happened the entire game, and all the mistakes made, i put no blame on AB. chances are he wouldnt have scored anyway if he stayed in bounds. Judging by performances, he's one of the lowest on the list when it comes to who's deserving of blame.
