4 rushes, 1 for a TD.

Giving CMU great field position on Punt returns as well.


That was one of the best bowl games I've seen in awhile. And he was the star. Troy Brown flash backs.

Obviously it goes beyond just that game.

A QB like LeFevour who has a similar playing style as Ben, is what I think Colbert liked in Antonio. His ability to come back for balls, end arounds, punt and kick off returns, etc..

Sounds like a great pick up. I have never seen the guy play. But, I'm all for adding speed to our WR core.

I agree with you. It's a much lesser hit now. Is it possible that Steelers FO knows what they are doing??? :shock:

NO, they do not know what they are doing at all! When asked who had the worst draft, Ron Jaworski responded with the Steelers, they had a good Rd. 1 pick, but then they took every LB available after that.... :shock:

Needless to say, I don't care for Jaws...

Makes me feel extra confident in our draft, when he said it.


If a team took all Quarterbacks, he'd rate them #1.

God I hate that guy. If he and Kiper ended up on a deserted island somewhere I could happily watch the draft on either channel and enjoy football monday-sunday without wanting to punch myself in the face.

Make sure to watch the entire video, because they continue to talk about him.

This is Troy Brown 2.0 in the making.

Santonio - S = Antonio.

Antonio Brown.

If he doesn't make the team and contribute immediately, I'll turn in my draftnik badge.

Was it Jaws who, last year, picked the QB Mike Reilly as the sleeper QB who reminded him of Tm Brady or whoever?

in Brown's 2006 prep season, did I read this correctly...


returned 11 punts and 6 kickoffs for touchdowns. IN FIVE GAMES?!


Even if it was a full season, and only on the prep level, that's incredible production. If it was in 5 games then he pretty much took every kick he touched to the house.

Now all we need is for Antonio to return a punt for a touchdown vs the Patriots in the AFC Championship (if they are there), ala Troy Brown, to make this complete.

he's looking great as a receiver

but leaves a lot to be desired as a return guy


why does it seem every team in the playoffs gets a big return each game and we're lucky to bring it out to the 30?
