    Antonio Brown fined $10,000 for taunting against Redskins

    Steelers Antonio Brown fined $10,000 for taunting against Washington in Week 8

    By Neal Coolong on Nov 3



    Brown picked up the Steelers' first fine since Week 2 for his backpedaling incident against Washington.

    According to Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Washington, Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has been fined $10,000 for running backward 20 yards into the end zone on an otherwise penalized play during the Steelers' 27-12 win over Washington in Week 8.

    There aren't formal announcements for fines, and typically, news of them are brought to the attention of the media by the player or the player's agent. Brown hasn't confirmed or denied the report, but it wouldn't be surprising if that was the case.

    He was penalized 15 yards for taunting on the play, but the Redskins accepted the illegal block in the back penalty on cornerback Curtis Brown instead.

    It breaks a string of four consecutive games without a fine for a Steelers player. Linebacker Lawrence Timmons had the last fine, getting docked $21,000 for a hit on Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez in Week 2.

    How about this angle - why do the Steelers risk their largest investment at WR returning so many punts? Why not put Wally, Sanders, Rainey, etc back there - one of their cheaper options.

    Simple. None of them are as good at returning punts as Brown is.

    not even close, Antonio Brown is a threat to score a TD every time he touches the ball.

    If Wallace made 11 guys miss on a PR he could moonwalk naked into the end zone.

    But it would still be called back for a hold or block in the back like every other punt/kick return we've had.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    Amos Jones should have cussed him out for it like Dick LeBeau did to Anthony Smith when Killswitch did his Deion Sanders impression following an interception 5 years ago.
