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.

Waaaaaa....that’s Brown’s motto. He was always wanting to be the center of attention and then came Juju who stole his lunch as team MVP. That’s what really broke it all. SB Nation couldn’t run with that as the story. Yeah, the truth doesn’t really play that well when you are trying to create drama. Truth is Brown is an ego centric maniac. He will explode in Oakland...just wait for it. He only cares about his stats that’s it...oh and getting paid. His days are numbered.

a coach that does not have control of his team. Ownership that let's it happen. Steelers will never be the same

Is it normal that the QB call out teammates sometimes ? Is it ok as long as it's kept behind closed doors and stays there . Like a players only meeting .No TV and radio no coaches , none of that just players . The last thing players need is a distraction .

Until this video I thought it was all on Brown. After watching I have to say the blame should be on Rothlisberger. Best thing for brown right now is that he plays well with his new team while the Steelers implode

The Jim Harbaugh-Pete Carroll beef spans Antonio Brown's beef with 1 day ago   08:14

Jim Harbaugh and Pete Caroll have squared off when one was a player and the other a coach, when both were Pac-10 coaches, and when both were taking NFC West teams to the Super Bowl. This is the sports beef version of Batman and the Joker. Or Batman and Batman. Or Joker and Joker? You get the idea.
