Antonio Brown's beef with Terrell Owens’ beef with 2 days ago   10:28

For more Pennsylvania-based quarterback-wide receiver beef, check out the episode starring Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens

Things between Antonio Brown and Ben Roethlisberger seemed fine.

They had a connection envied by the rest of the league as Brown had the best four-year stretch by a wide receiver in the history of the NFL. The Pittsburgh Steelers were rolling as a result and always felt like a threat in the AFC, especially when considering Roethlisberger already having a pair of Super Bowl victories to his name.

But early in 2017, the cracks began to show. After the quarterback failed to notice a wide-open Brown during a game against the Ravens, the receiver took his frustrations out on a water cooler. Instead of keeping things behind closed doors, Roethlisberger expressed his thoughts about the sideline outburst on the radio for all to hear. This would become a theme in their beef, as Pittsburgh’s signal-caller had used the tactic with other wide receivers, and would continue to voice his Brown-related opinions on 93.7 The Fan.

It would become apparent that there weren’t many of his teammates that approved of this tactic, but the Steelers coaches and front office didn’t seem to mind. That only exacerbated the issues, and while Big Ben took to the radio, Brown took to Twitter to make himself known. With so much being aired out in the open, the speculation from the media grew and the players were peppered with questions about their relationship.

They did their best to play nice, but by the end of 2018, it had snowballed into something that couldn’t be hidden. Brown was benched for their final game of the season after a spat at practice. It went off the rails from there in a way that all but guarantees we haven’t heard the end of it.

Can you call the rift between Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy beef? If so, that should be a episode !
Sean OConnor
I’m not a sports fan at all haha, but I adore your beef videos- I totally remember some of them as like “passing fads” or suntin; but most of them are just a really interesting glimpse into a very specific aspect of American pop culture
Bryan Green
I like how you didnt include AB's live stream in the locker room.
Marty Wormuth

If every wideout that leaves keep saying the same thing, and some of them don't get along, you gotta stop looking at them and look at Ben as the problem. AB isn't an angel, neither it LB, but when they leave and they can all tell the same story, you wait to hear how the next wideout will be described...
Ted Johnson
Man we'll be alright, juju and James fit in very nice with us
Jeff Reed
Well Big Ben has been known to put his teammates on blast and umm Sanders was right P. Manning was a better leader on the football field then Ben i see it as in my opinion if u have a problem with a teammate then talk to them one on one

?? “it’s on the internet.... where nothing lasts forever” there’s no putting that toothpaste back in the tube. ?? Edit room fail?? Or did he mean that in some that in some that went right over my head but still does not make any sense either way

As a ravens fan, I can easily say that days of our Steelers has been my favorite day time soap opera over the last few years

Terrell Owens’ beef with Antonio Brown's beef with 2 days ago   10:00

Terrell Owens joined the Philadelphia Eagles in 2004. Terrell Owens left the Philadelphia Eagles in 2005. His beef with Donovan McNabb caused a rift in a team coming off of 4 straight NFC Championships, and 1 Super Bowl appearance.

It was about money. It was about power. It was all beef.
