Default Re: Antonio Brown overrated

Antonio Brown is a great fit for the Steelers. Anymore, I'm really done defining what a #1 WR should look like based on what the top 5 WRs in yards and tds are doing. If all Brown ever does is build a career on making clutch catches and assimilating a career close or better than Ward's - I would be stoked.

I know he is good, ( lots of good wideouts ) but, he has done nothing to suggest he is anymore than that.
Three of those games were in his rookie year. Last year at Denver he caught 5 for 70. Wallace caught 3 for 26.

Meanwhile D. Thomas of Denver had 200 yards and the winning touchdown, in his second year (which was like his rookie year with injuries) against us in the wildcard game with Tim Tebow at QB.

We rarely see a dominate performance like that from what people like to call a great receiving corps!

Again, I think they are good just not as good as people like to believe.

That was a fluke and you know it.

That's because we have enough weapons that no single guy needs to have 200 receiving yards for us to win games. Ben spreads the ball around well to Brown, Wallace, Sanders, and Miller.

If we had less playmakers in our WR corps, and more touches went to AB exclusively, he would have the fantasy stats you cherish so much. What matters is when his number is called --HE DELIVERS, while Walace drops the ball.

My only critique of brown is the whole "young money" BS. He needs to drop teh showboat crap and just play Steelers football. That 20 yard backwards TD was pretty damn funny-- but stuff like that costs the team wins.

It's Brown to the rescue for Steelers

Posted: Wednesday, November 28, 2012
By Mike Bires



With Mike Wallace in Mike Tomlin's doghouse, Antonio Brown is the Steelers' go-to guy at receiver.

PITTSBURGH – It’s unlikely the Steelers will have their franchise quarterback Sunday in Baltimore. They will have their reigning Most Valuable Player though.

With Ben Roethlisberger still rehabbing his shoulder and rib injuries, Charlie Batch expects to make his second straight start. Considering how poorly Batch played last week in Cleveland, that must be a sobering thought for the slumping Steelers (6-5).

On the bright side, however, wide receiver Antonio Brown will start after missing three games with a high ankle sprain.

The Steelers’ 2011 team MVP hopes to inject life into a stagnant offense that scored just one touchdowns in each of the past three games. In back-to-back losses to the Ravens and Browns, in which Roethlisberger and Brown both sat out, the Steelers failed to score a touchdown pass.

“I don’t know, that’s not my place to say,” Brown said when asked how much the Steelers missed his play-making abilities. “My place is to be there when my teammates need me, and I’m looking forward to giving us a spark.”

Brown’s return comes at a time when the Steelers have problems galore on offense.

* Their star QB is hurt.

* There’s chaos at running back where first-stringer Rashard Mendenhall has been demoted for his sloppy performance Sunday in Cleveland where the Steelers committed eight turnovers.

* Injuries are mounting on the offensive line.

* At wide receiver, it appears that underachieving Mike Wallace has lost his starting job to Emmanuel Sanders.

“No question. It’s always hard when you’re watching your teammates in battle, and you’re not out there helping them,” Brown said. “Since I’ve been here, I’ve never experienced back-to-back losses before. And to lose two in a row to division opponents, it’s disgusting. That’s something we don’t stand for around here.

“So we plan on getting things back to normal. I’m thankful I’ll be out there this week.”

Even though he hasn’t played since the first half of the Nov. 4 win over the Giants, Brown is still third on the team with 42 catches and 499 receiving yards. He trails tight end Heath Miller (51/516) and Wallace (47/572).

Even though the Ravens (9-2) expect to see Batch at QB again, coach John Harbaugh believes that Brown can be the X factor when these two AFC North rivals meet Sunday.

“He’s a playmaker,” Harbaugh said. “He’s a guy that can score from any part of the field, offensively or special teams-wise. He’s got tremendous quickness, speed, body control and hands.

“He’s a guy that we’ve really thought the world of, ever since he was coming out (of college), and we were going through the process of getting to know him coming out of Central Michigan. He’s just a stellar-type of guy and we’ll definitely have to have an eye on him.”

In the 2010 draft, the Steelers picked Brown in the sixth round. Also part of that draft class was Sanders, a third-round pick.

So far in their careers, Brown has been more productive. He has 127 career catches for 1,774 yards and three TDs. He also earned Pro Bowl honors last year as a kick return specialist. Sanders has 84 career catches for 1,153 yards and five TDs.

But on Sunday, it looks like Brown and Sanders will both be in the starting lineup for the first time. And they could remain starters for years to come.

“Emmanuel is doing really well,” Brown said. “He’s seizing his opportunity. When you’re presented with opportunities, you need to take advantage of them.”

That’s what Brown hopes to do again Sunday in Baltimore.

Brian Hartline caught something like 250 yards earlier this season. So, he is obviously the best WR in the league...

Honestly, it is like all the idiots in the world congregated on one forum. Antonio Brown is a hard worker and a great football player. He is not a true number one receiver. Brown is an excellent slot/possession WR. Brown is not going to beat double teams with dominant physical play.

No one is holding Brown to the same standard as Wallace. People dump on Wallace for not being a top 5 WR. I have never heard Brown even MENTIONED in the same sentence as top 5 WRs. So why the special treatment? Could it be that Wallace held out in pre-season and you're all a bunch of whining, snivelling pussies?

Brown and Wallace are both good WRs. Wallace is better. End of story.
Really???

Yeah, okay. Let's just juggle the damn ball and basically toss it up to be intercepted by THE CLEVELAND FUCKING BROWNS! That almost says enough about Wallace. I live south of Cleveland by only like, 25 miles. They flat out suck by losing games in the final quarter They're on my dang TV almost every Sunday! Had Brown been that receiver, he would have caught and held onto the ball.

The dude has a sh*tty, greedy, self-centered attitude and it's not getting better. Not ONCE have I seen much emotion from the guy. He holds out just because he wants Fitz money? Get real! You're playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers. You should be happy just to be part of such a great organization.

Wallace was on tap for being Brown's skill but ever since he dropped off in the 2nd half of last season he has been NO saving grace by ANY means.

I see Brown as the heart and attitude that was so like that of good ol' #86. If he keeps catching what's thrown to him he's the most solid catching the ball outside of Heath Miller.

Holding the ball against your HELMET on a 3rd and 12+ play and retaining possession says a lot.

Wallace= no emotion, greedy, OVER RATED
Brown= plenty of smiles, clutch catches, 1,000 yds receiving and returning

Take your pick. Wallace can take his BS attitude and poor play (especially as of late) the hell out of Pittsburgh. Speed is his only asset. Let him walk.

AB has a long term contract with guaranteed money to boot, MW doesn't. If he gets taken out by an injury, he's screwed. Having a signed contract gives one piece of mind in employment situations. This shit isn't new.
