Antonio Brown created some headlines Wednesday in showing a true disconnect with Mike Vick.
“Well, obviously our quarterback’s not at quarterback,” said Brown when asked about why he’s not getting the ball. “I think Mike Vick’s just playing within the gameplan. He’s just playing conservative, trying to do what it takes to win. Not trying to make a mistake. And that’s about it.”
One of the best quotes from Brown was about Bruce Arians coming to town.
“I think he’ll be fired up,” said Brown. “They’re got a lot of good cornerbacks. Obviously, Patrick Peterson. I think that’s always a great matchup. Those guys are defensive ballhawks. Their front four is getting after the quarterback. They’re going to try to heat us up with pressure, obviously put a lot of guys in the box for Le’Veon [Bell]. B.A. hasn’t been here in so long. One thing I know about him, he’s going to throw the ball down the field. He doesn’t call the same play twice. He’s going to be fired up to come around here and light us up.”

As revealed by Triblive Radio this morning, the transcript titled “full” tweeted out by the Steelers yesterday is not the actual transcript as the first eight questions Brown answered, mostly critical about Vick were left out.
The full transcript can be found on TribLive Radio via 10-1 host Ken Laird.
Bad look for the Steelers who rarely tweet out transcripts anyways, but they get the benefit of the doubt here. No organization is worse than the Penguins right now who go above and beyond to control the message. It’s not even close when comparing the Pirates and Steelers. The Penguins have reached the embarrassing stages of trying to spin everything into positive PR. A total change from three to four years ago.
