Default Antonio Brown taunting

he genuinely seems like one of the more likable players in the league, but is he getting out of control?

does he want to be despised by opponents like hines ward or chad johnson was?

Despised by opponents.

Well Ocho Cinco just annoyed the piss outta me.

And why was Hines Ward despised? Because he was DAM GOOD at what he did and played physical and with a chip on his shoulder? Because he broke keith rivers jaw, or layed out Ed Reed a bunch of times? Peoples misperception of Dirty is stupid. He played hard, nasty, but never dirty. Never with the intention of purposely hurting something or ending their career. By no means dirty.

If people want to despise Brown, So What! Let them. As long as he keeps producing like he has, and doesnt play dirty, I dont see a problem. Let the man run backwards for 20 yards if he wants

That was pretty excessive. We were lucky that penalty was being declined anyway, but he needs to put a lid on that before it gets out of hand.

:
Disagree - Hines tried to hurt people. You can block people hard, and you can line them up for a kill shot.

Hines did the latter. He could have made the Reed and Rivers blocks just as effectively without lowering his head and launching at their jaws.

We all loved it because it was our guy, but if Troy got taken out that way by a WR, we'd cry foul.

I disagree with that. How else was he supposed to hit them? You can't go low on a defender from the side that way. Yea, his helmet hit, but he didn't drive it in. His shoulder would have done the same thing. Bottom line, if you don't want leveled out on the football field, you stay aware of your surroundings. A lapse in judgement by someone singled in on the ball isn't Hines' problem.

The rule it generated is also silly. Don't touch anyone who isn't staring at you, or you'll get a flag. Silly.

WRs block effectively all the time without head hunting. That was Hines' game, and why he was universally hated by his peers. Not sure I get that, as defenders do it all the time, but to deny that Hines was trying to light people up is really inarguable.

I would argue that it was simply playing the game to the best of his ability. Why should he pause and compute velocity and impact on every hit to try and determine what a receiver can take? You either hit him, or you don't, IMO. At the time the hits were legal...so why one earth would you want to pull up?

Plain and Simple.If there had not been a block in the back penalty, then the TD by Brown would have nullified anyway, as it happened at the 20 yard line, not after the TD. If they gave him a 15 yard penalty, we would have had the ball at the 35. If Brown did this in a tight game, it could cost us big. My guess is Tomlin has and will again address this as a big no no. Costing us games due to being a showboat can't be tolerated. Love Brown, and it was fun to watch him do it, right up until the flag came down.
