Wera:

Just these guys reading into every single thing. Saying, well he is thinking this, so let me explain what he is thinking! Or what he meant to say is this!, lol

----------------------

On the great Wr's v QB. Well Holmes was so great, we traded him for a 5rd pick, lol. Than went on to cause trouble, and put up below avg at best numbers.
I'll take what we got for that 5th rd pick any day of the week.

A player may leave the Steelers. We need to drag him through the mud and slam him to lessen the impact on our psyches if he does leave; see "I'd take Brown over Wallace any day!" and 90% of the other negative comments.

The years (his last two) his team won the SB they had McCaffrey and Sharpe (played similar to a WR). But Terrell Davis' running the pill was key in the wins as much as the 38+ year old Elway.

LOL! Great explanation! I think you and Curtain_of_Steel nailed it... Lots of negativity on this board.... Of course they hide behind being "realists...." and not being "homers" but most of it is making mountains out of molehills.... I find it damn tiring at times...



I personalty think we are much better with him than without and hope they figure it out and would hate to see him in any other uniform...

Steelers Wide Receiver Coach Reveals Flaw Of Antonio Brown

Friday, June 8th, 2012 by Dave Bryan

Well, well, well. It seems that Pittsburgh Steelers third-year wide receiver Antonio Brown has a flaw. Despite busting out his sophomore year with 2,048 all-purpose yards, and always saying and doing the right things both on and off the field, wide receivers coach Scottie Montgomery revealed this past week that Brown has a problem. That problem is that he needs to rest some.

What? In reality, Montgomery, in his one-on-one interview with Bob Labriola on Steelers Live at 4, heaped a ton of praise on the former sixth round draft pick out of Central Michigan, when asked to talk about each of the receivers. "I don't doubt any day when Antonio Brown wakes up that he's not trying to be the best in the world," said Montgomery. "That's exactly when he wakes up, he is trying to be the number one player in the world."

Montgomery continued on to say that Brown basically just needs to back off a little bit and rest some. "For one, 84, or Antonio, as most people would know him as, sometimes you just have to work on him backing off a little bit, because he is a guy that wakes up at 6 am and starts working out, and doesn't stop working out until about 10 p.m.," said Montgomery. "So what he needs to understand, is from a professional standpoint, professional development sometimes happens through rest."

So there you have it. The fan favorite and 2011 team MVP, who is responsible for the increasing popular acronym, C.U.E.U.P.U., which stands for chest up, eyes up, prayed up, needs to only add an R.U. to that for rest up. Not too shabby for a player from the mean streets of Miami, who just so happens to be entering the final year of his rookie contract this upcoming season. It's not hard to believe that Montgomery says that when Brown wakes up every morning he has the intentions of being the number one player in the world. His personality and actions thus far certainly scream that out loud.

Brown was not the only receiver that Montgomery discussed in his interview with Labriola either. In regard to fellow third-year wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, Montgomery said, "He is a guy that is probably one of the most skilled guys that I've been around in that room from a standpoint of just receiver skill and fundamentals." As far as things that Sanders needs to work on, Montgomery stated, "The things that I would have him work on, more than anything, is just continue to develop his strength. You know his core strength, not only his core strength, but lower body strength and just working everyday to be the best that he can in coming out of his breaks and being healthy. And that's one thing, if you improve your strength, it will also improve your health."

Next up was the thoughts of Montgomery on Mike Wallace, who currently has yet to sign his one-year restricted tender and practice this off-season. "Mike, the one thing that I could get to improve him more than anything, is that for me to get a chance to see him here really shortly," said Montgomery. "The true thing that he can really work on, and continue to work on at all time, is that we will do an exceptional job of working his feet and getting him in and out of breaks. I think that he is extremely talented from a skill standpoint and a fundamental standpoint." Montgomery also praised the speed of Wallace and his ability to track down the deep ball in addition as he added, "One thing that of course that he has that no one can coach that you can be around, he is the fastest man I've ever been around, hung out with, or seen run routes. He's exceptionally fast and he is an unique guy, because usually, truly fast guys have problems tracking some of those deep balls and he just has the knack to come up with those deep balls."

Montgomery did not forget about the veteran Jerricho Cotchery either, who was re-signed to a multi-year deal this off-season. "Oh he is definitely my guy," gushed Montgomery. "I really love Jerricho. I told the rookies when they first came in, a lot of these guys when you first come in will give you a hard time, but if you need to go to someone besides me, that is going to be there for you no matter what, they're not going to tell your business, or not worry about it getting out to anyone else, you need to go to Jerricho." Montgomery continued on with his praise and respect for the former Jets receiver. "I haven't been around very many men in this profession, period, that are as good of a young man that he is. His family life is together and intact. And also on the field, he learned our entire offense last year in two weeks and went into the first preseason game and played unbelievable for us. So from a football standpoint, he is well above the line. We're just really, really happy to have him here. I'm kind of tickled that we have him in a position that we have him in here, and he wanting to come back and be with us and that's a testament to who he is."

The interview was very candid with Montgomery, and while each might have a minor flaw here and there, you can tell that he is very excited about this group headed into 2012. During the interview the coach summed it best when he said, "We have a lot of guys that are very hungry, to say the least, that want to make plays every single time and want to be on the field every play."

Steelers Antonio Brown Already In Canton

Jun 28th, 2012 by KimmySteelers



Antonio Brown's game jersey for his NFL record 1,000 yard receiving and 1,000 yard returns season.

Although many have stated that there is a Steelers bias in the Pro Football Hall of Fame thanks to the sheer number of HOF’ers from the 1970’s that it makes it difficult for Steelers of late to receive their earned busts, one young Steeler already has his jersey in Canton. This week Antonio Brown’s game worn jersey from the Week 17 matchup against the Cleveland Browns was signed and displayed in the Pro Football Hall of Fame acknowledging the historic milestone Brown reached last season becoming the first NFL player in history to compile both 1,000 yards for receiving and 1,000 return yards.

For Brown’s efforts for the Steelers in 2011 his teammates proudly voted him as team MVP as he not only broke an NFL record but broke the franchise record for all-purpose yards with 2,211. Brown surpassed Barry Foster’s 2,034 yards accumulated in 1992. Brown’s career-high numbers included in his 2,211 were 1,108 receiving yards, 737 kickoff return yards, and 325 punt return yards with 69 receptions. Entering his third season, Brown looks to play a more pronounced role in the Steelers offense, especially with the Mike Wallace situation not yet worked out, Brown looks to possibly take the place as the #1 receiver on the team. Most likely his role as kick returner might be filled by some other upstart, as it is a tradition with the Steelers that the top wide receivers make their names though Special Teams first.

Brown visited the display with the Steelers drafted and free agent rookies. The group made the trip to the Hall for the display and maybe to have a little history lesson on the franchise they have all become a part of. The Steelers are a unique franchise with the most players enshrined in the Hall of Fame; an active coach enshrined, and has 2 former players being enshrined this summer. No telling if the entire team will make the trip to Canton for Dawson and Butler’s enshrinement like they did two years ago when Coach LeBeau was inducted as a player. Clearly the Hall needs to expand to an All-Steelers section for those who are still left to be inducted.

For Brown’s jersey to be displayed in the Hall of Fame must be a very proud moment for the young receiver to enjoy. Brown might not be known for the speed like Mike Wallace but he has provided Steeler Nation with some awesome highlights like his “helmet catch” against the Ravens in the playoffs in 2010. Brown will be an RFA next season and most are already weary that we will be going through the same situation with Brown as what is going on with Wallace right now. Something tells me though, that won’t be the case. Congrats to Brown on the amazing accomplishment, here’s to hoping he can break another milestone this season and start a collection of jerseys in the Hall of Fame.
