unless i missed something he did after he crossed the goal line
and of course they're going to take the block in the back penalty. its marked off from the spot of the foul
yes, I'm sure and even looked it up to be double-sure.

Antonio Brown didn't know the rule ...
by Joe Starkey
Asked if he knows it's an automatic foul if you run backwards into the end zone, Brown said, "No, I had no clue. I did the same thing when I took one back on Oakland, and I didn't see a flag. I gotta get better on that."
Of course, it won't matter if his teammates keep holding on his big returns.
"someone will be sitting as soon as we have some options available to us..." M. Tomlin.
so I guess there will be roster changes coming up.
When is DeCastro eligible to return?
after Week 8...

Tomlin took Antonio Brown to task privately and publicly for his taunting penalty on an punt return against Washington.
"I not only spoke to Antonio, but I spoke to our team about it," Tomlin said. "Briefly, simply what I said is that it was not respectable. Those of us that know Antonio and watch him work on a day-to-day basis, if one word describes him professionally it's respectable. How he prepares, what he's willing to do, what kind of teammate he is, and that's represented in his play. That's the way we approached it.
"I thought it was an awesome learning opportunity for the entire group because, as professionals, I think that's a word everyone would want to describe their play.
"I think people that don't see you work on a day-to-day basis are capable of making judgments about you personally and professionally based on what they see, so we want to do what's respectable. That's what we talked about and kind of moved on."
Whatever... anytime Brown has a big return he will black out and put on a show...
