Antonio Brown has always irked me with the Santonio pose after every first down and is getting out of control - back in the day the Steelers would have taken the 15 yard penalty and clocked someone like Brown on the next play if someone pulled a stunt like running bcakwards into the end zone for 20 yards

IMO without Ward and Farrior to calm things down (e.g. - when Keenan Lewis acted like he had just won the game when the Redskins were stopped on 3rd and goal and then was beaten when Washington scored on 4th down) there is a lot more bulls**t conduct by the Steelers these days, with the worst of it coming from Young Money

It is not as if that conduct has been tolerated by the Steelers for a long time - anyone else remember when LeBeau got in the face of Antonio Smith after he paraded like a drum major after causing a turnover?

I didn't say pull up. You can block hard without head hunting. Tell me honestly that you think he had no choice but to lower his helmet on Reed here. He lined him up and actually hid himself behind another player, then launched and knocked him out, just like he wanted to do.

If someone did that to Troy, you'd call it a cheap shot.

Yea, but I don't see that here. He had a guy on him, who he made a move and passed. Reed was coming directly at him and made no move to avoid or defend himself. So again, what do you want Ward to do there? Take a dive and rip up some knees? Or just call off the play because Reed deserves a pass for not paying attention? When you're running in a straight line, and another guy comes at you in a straight line from 5 yards out, whatever happens to you is what you deserve, IMO. The #1 priority, above any and all other things, must be to protect yourself. This is true of all sporting activities. If you don't want leveled when a guy comes at you in a straight line, you watch for him, and protect yourself.

Block him hard and take him out of the play, not lower his head and try to break his jaw. It's clear that he didn't see Hines, as Hines was hiding behind the other defender until Reed spotted the ball carrier.

You really think that was his only option?

Frankly, it was kind of a chickenshit move. Hines *could* have engaged him when he was looking and fought him face to face, but he lured him into the jawbreaker.

I mean, stuff like this doesn't happen by accident.

Antonio plays hard and I like him for his explosiveness, but until he wins big games for us like Ward and even Holmes, he has no right to be cocky.

If someone hit one of our games like Hines hit Reed, unless helmet contact is made, i'd call it a football play. Simple as that. If one of our guys get rocked, so be it. "Such is life in the NFL".

what better way to take someone out of the play than to make sure they don't get up after the hit? when I played ball, the coaches used to congratulate us for decking people and erasing them from plays. people get hurt, that's football.
