Did his teammates snub Ben Roethlisberger again in their vote for #Steelers MVP, picking Antonio Brown? It's the second time in three seasons Brown has won the award. Roethlisberger won it once, in the 2009 season, when the Steelers did not make the playoffs.

Roethlisberger is having one of his best, if not best, seasons of his career. he has 4,082 yards passing and needs only 247 to break his own team record. He already has four of the top fie seasons in team history in passing yards.

But then Brown too is having his best season. He broke Yancey Thigpen's 16-year record with 1,412 yards and his 101 catches are second only to Heinz Ward's 112 in 2002.

Either one, really, would have been a good choice.

I totally agree that either Ben or Antonio would have been a good choice. Ben is a warrior and never gives up. I wish they would have been named co-MVPs this year because they are both equally deserving, in my opinion.

Congratulations, Antonio!

Well deserved, big year after being installed as the teams #1. Makes you wonder if Heath and Bell had been healthy during the first part of the season and if the hurry up had been implemented earlier and if Brown had been settled in better at the first of the season. Oh well a lot of ifs.

Good for AB, but it definitely should have been Ben.

Ben was responsible for the late-season turnaround when we switched to the no-huddle offense. He got us 5 wins out of the last 7 on his arm-- our defense sure hasn't been in on that much. He did all this behind a makeshift offensive line and a center who likes to give prostate exams. He did this while being backed up by like the 20-something ranked run game.

AB doesn't break 1000 yards if there is not a fucking trooper standing back there in the mess throwing the ball for him to catch.

Why does Ben always get snubbed on MVP voting?

My honorable mentions go to Fernando Velasco and Heath Miller-- yeah, strange pick-- but how did you like our offense before he came back off IR?

Brown: 'We made some great strides'

Teresa Varley
Steelers.com

The strong finish to the 2013 season has Antonio Brown already thinking about improving for next year.

Antonio Brown never takes a day off. He won’t let himself. It’s not in his DNA. He is perpetual motion, sometimes attacking things physically with workouts, other times mentally challenging himself, always looking for ways to improve.

“As an individual you always think about what you could have done better, you weigh in on it and how you could get better for this year,” said Brown.

It’s kind of hard to imagine what Brown could have done better last year. He stepped in as the team’s number one receiver, replacing Mike Wallace who signed with the Miami Dolphins, and flourished. Brown finished the season setting a Steelers single season record with 1,499 yards receiving, surpassing Yancey Thigpen’s record of 1,398 set in 1997 and also passing the likes of John Stallworth and Hines Ward along the way.

“It’s always a challenge and you know your game has to be at a high level,” said Brown of being the number one receiver. “Defenses and teams are coming into stadiums to take you out. Everyone is looking to me to be the leader and definition of what it’s like to be the Steelers number one receiver.”

He continued to define the role adding a career-high 110 receptions, second in Steelers history for receptions in a season and just two behind Ward who had 112 in 2002. He had at least five receptions and 50 receiving yards in all 16 games to become the first player in NFL history to accomplish that in a 16 game regular season. He had a career-high 12 receptions against Minnesota in London and a career-high 196 yards receiving against the Chicago Bears on Sept. 22 at Heinz Field, the yardage tied for sixth-most in team history for a single game.

“It’s motivating to set the standard up,” said Brown. “You always want to be better than those that came before you. I acknowledge the ones that came before me and understand the legacy.”

It’s a legacy he embraces. When he was voted MVP by his teammates for a second time this year, he joined the ranks of some pretty prestigious players to win MVP honors multiple times, including Hall of Famers Terry Bradshaw, Jack Lambert and Rod Woodson, as well as some other all-time greats.

“That is humbling. I am thankful for it,” said Brown. “I know every year I am here I am challenging myself to make a mark. I am here to lay the foundation of who I am and what I stood for. Hopefully whoever comes behind me will do the same.

“You have to make yourself aware of the players that came before you and did it. You have to know where you came from to know where you are going. It’s always amazing to look and see what they have done and motivate myself.”

That motivation already has Brown itching for the 2014 season to roll around. He loved what the offense did, especially in the second half of the season, the way they kept fighting and growing.

“We made some great strides,” said Brown. “Over the course of adversity we didn’t put our heads down or dwell on what people were saying. We continued to be an offense on the rise, continued to get better. It’s going to be great to build on that this offseason.”

Brown weighed in on a handful of other topics, with his thoughts below.

On the no-huddle offense: “It’s going to be tremendous for us. Any time we can get out and start fast and get a team off rhythm and off beat, allowing Ben (Roethlisberger) to call his reads and read the defense, not allowing the defense to get their calls in, is a positive for us. The earlier we start the better we will be at it.”

On his work ethic: “It’s just about my attitude. It speaks volumes when you go out and put the work in and encourage others. You bring energy to the group and people feed off that energy. A lot of times we are tired and beat down and we still have to push forward.”

On the emergence of the running game as the 2013 season progressed: “It was exciting. We know when Le’Veon (Bell) is healthy he is a great running back. We know he can help us out catching a pass, running a route. It’s going to be great to get him here in the spring and hopefully he will be able to start off early with everyone. That is going to be a great asset for us.”

On what it means to him to play for the Steelers: “It means everything. Any time I can come to work and see six Lombardi Trophies, be part of great ownership that really cares about their players, play for a great head coach in Mike Tomlin, and play with one of the great quarterbacks and future Hall of Famer in Ben Roethlisberger. That is what it’s all about, being a part of something special. Any time I can be a part of that it’s special to me.”

That's all the article needed to say. AB is not just a special player, but a special human being. It takes great inner motivation to never give up on your craft, no matter how good you get. That's what separates you from good to great.
