    I like AB and I don't want to see him leave because of the antics. He's a gamer and seems to be stepping his game up on a team that's been playing bad. I'd just like to see him grow up a little. Celebrating can be good when it's done to fire up your teammates. But AB seems to be more interested in looking for a camera than looking to pickup his teammates.

    Speaking of firing up your teammates, someone needs to be in Adams' ear hole. I don't recall ever seeing a lineman stand out in such a bad way. If ever there was a time for Ben to scream at somone, Adams has earned it. He looks like he was just stabbed last week.
    screw welker... he talks trash just like the rest of them.

Franco? Swann? Stallworth? Webster? Greene? Greenwood? Really, the greatest team of all time and they went about their business like professionals, I miss them.

    This year's team is bad, you'd think AB did something of note every time he makes a catch, when in reality, he's doing what he's paid to do.

    0-16 with a team full of Heaths, highly unlikely, he's a top 10 player at his position and if the team had even close to the top 10 talent at every position (a team full of Heaths) they would be contenders every year, not 0-16.

    I am "get off my lawn", the lack of respect shown by young adults today is alarming to us "get off my lawn" generation folks, sorry that having a little respect for people is such a daunting task in today's world and today's sports world.

    If Adams made just one block; I'd be OK if he did a little dance. Hell, he could bust out the worm if the RB got 2 yards behind one of his blocks.

    Is this a real issue or the fact Brown got the contract and Wallace didn't?
    I could care less who got the contract and who didn't, I would rather have Wallace (and, I hated the way he half-@ssed it last year) than Brown, I don't mind Brown, I think he's a good receiver and he's one of the few Steelers actually earning a pay check. That doesn't mean I have to like his antics and if he were to walk there would be another self-absorbed WR to fill his void. WRs are a dime a dozen, every team has one or two good receivers, what isn't a dime a dozen are quality tackles, guards and centers, the Steelers are lacking at the tackle position and possibly the guard position and hence the biggest reason for the debacle that is called the Pittsburgh Steelers 2013 football team.

    Along with below average tackles, the Steelers also have below average DEs and NTs and this is probably the second biggest reason for the 2013 debacle. You can't win football games with below average linemen, you control nothing if your linemen are always getting beat, see 0-4 Steelers and Giants.

    Poor grammar on my part, I should have ended the sentence after "in today's world."

    Antonio Brown, IMO, can do whatever he wants as long as he produces and doesn't draw Unsportsmanlike Conduct flags...

    I don't think that making the first down signal and dropping the ball has any effect on how a player performs...I don't think Heath is a better player because he foregoes that...Heath is a good player because he's Heath...

    Now, if it's annoying for you to watch, that's your opinion...

    Yup, I've always thought you should actually accomplish something before you tell everyone how good you are, as I've admitted, I'm old school and don't deny it. The game has passed me by a long time ago.

    I'm a little old timey myself Pap, and I think the guy looks like a moron when he does that every... single... time he gets a first down. Hey, I like A. Brown. I enjoy the td dances, wish I could see more of them. But for the love of whatever God you pray to, when you get a first down just act like you've done it before. As a fan, I think it's an embarrassment that this guy is representing my team like that.

    I'm more embarrassed that some fans take themselves so seriously they can't enjoy a player making a first down for the team he roots for...

    Yes to this. Is it really an issue?
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!
