Antonio Brown no-showed, and chaos breaking out with Steelers

Antonio Brown pointing into the crowd

Pittsburgh is 0-1-1 this season after a disappointing season-opening tie to the Browns and then a 42-37 loss to Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs on Sunday. And that's what his entire focus is on.

Tomlin declined to say whether Brown's absence was excused, though in the past Tomlin has typically offered an explanation when a player is out.

"AB is a very passionate football player".

"When he gets frustrated in games, just tell him to stay with me, talk to me, communicate with me".

However, as we know, winning fixes everything and the next four games against reasonably competitive teams could be the deciding factor in whether Pittsburgh ever gets things turned around for 2018. I'm not going to utilize this forum to address such things.

Brown's tweet was a reply to former Steelers PR man Ryan Scarpino, who suggested Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was largely responsible for Brown's success, and the player's agent Drew Rosenhaus said it should be seen in that context.

His "Trade me" tweet was his second social media flare-up in as many weeks. We haven't won a game yet.

According the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, which cited an unidentified team source, Brown won't be suspended for skipping Monday's team activities, though it's possible, even likely, he'll be fined. Rosenhaus also said Brown does not actually want to be traded. "He's a competitor. He wants to be the best in the world and he probably is".

The connection that Roethlisberger and Brown have had in the passing game has made them one of the best 1-2 punches in the National Football League that has seen them link up for a tremendous amount of success.

"I think it's just frustration", Roethlisberger said.

Originally, I think most people shrugged this off as sarcasm or a joke.
