Mike Tomlin Calls Steelers WR Antonio Brown's Antics 'Not Respectable'
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was not one bit happy with the taunting penalty Antonio Brown received Sunday and he addressed the matter with the guilty party and the team as a whole.
“I not only spoke to Antonio, but I spoke to our team about it,” Tomlin said today at his weekly press conference. “Briefly, simply what I said is that it was not respectable.”
Brown, a wide receiver and kick return specialist, was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct while running 78 yards for an apparent punt return touchdown in the 27-12 win over the Redskins.
But two Steelers were penalized on the play – cornerback Curtis Brown for an illegal block in the back and Brown for running backwards for the last 20 yards of his return.
“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,” Tomlin said.
“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.”
