Mike Tomlin calls Patriots “a–holes” in video posted by Antonio Brown

Getty Images

Steelers receiver Antonio Brown made an odd decision to stream a Facebook live video of the team’s locker room after Sunday night’s win in Kansas City, a decision that gave fans access to to coach Mike Tomlin’s postgame speech — in which he referred to the Patriots as “a–holes.”

The video, which has been viewed more than 1 million times, also includes postgame thoughts from Steelers players. Tomlin was not directly criticizing the Patriots so much as firing his team up to have a big week against an opponent that will have more rest.

“We spotted those a–holes a day and a half,” Tomlin said of the Patriots. “They played yesterday, our game got moved to tonight. We’re going to touch down at 4 o’clock in the f–king morning. So be it. We’ll be ready for their ass.”

The video also includes the voice of one player or coach telling the Steelers to “keep it cool on social media.” Posting a video from inside the locker room is probably not what that person had in mind.

  1. WOW what a classy coach.

    Pitts must be proud to back Tomlin, he had that

    offense rolling. Now if the refs call holding on

    their def backs,oh wait if the refs had KC would

    have one.

    Guess I willroot for the a holes

  2. Watched it. Loved it. Whether you like Tomlin or not, the man can fire up his team. Patriots fans think this game is going to be easy. You got another thing coming.

  3. Looks like Mike Triplin, I mean Tomlin, already has a whiny built in excuse for why the Patriots will win next Sunday.

    Give it a rest Trippy.

  4. I think its what we call locker room talk. As a Pats fan I dont mind Tomlin. Cant blame him for trying to get the team fired up, considering their recent history in FB. Good luck Steelers fans, should be a tight game.

  5. This will make it’s way around New England today, starting with One Patriot Place and the team’s first meeting of the week.

    I remember a Steeler d-back guaranteed a win over the Patriots. Brady went after him and lit him up like a Christmas tree.

    My impression of Tomlin just went in the toilet. Based on the way these jokers were goofing off when Tomlin was speaking tells me a lot about this team (clowns).

  6. My nephew last night saw BIG Ben and said (unprovoked) that, “Ben in a football helmet looked like a fat Will Ferrell.” He is four and we all fell out laughing all over the place. NE will neutralize Bell and make Ben beat them. Ben cannot beat them, he is a shell of his former self, not literally of course since he is fat.

  7. I’m a Patriots fan and my opinion is…who the hell cares? It’s a coach trying to fire up his team in the locker room. The locker room should still be a place where you can say what you want to your team. It’s kinda cool that we fans get to hear it, but no one should be judged on what is said.

  8. Meh in the context on which it was spoken, it was kind of a compliment.

    Every coach says the same type of stuff, this time it was just stupidly caught on video. Ugh why would you ever do such a thing? AB rocks but that was horrible.

    Go Steelers!

  9. Tomlin is a cheerleader so he is what he is. Actually very similar to Cowher!
    Brown should keep things like this in house however and should have been in the same room when his coach was talking. Is he smoking weed? He sounds like he is on something
    Regardless the Pats will not be effected either way if a coach calls them A holes. Most of America hates the Pats (jealously) anyway.
    Steeler fan.

  10. Just when i though i couldn’t hate the Steelers any more than i already do, or that the coach isn’t just a douche bag hype man. This just clarifies it all.

    what a bunch of muppets. I don’t like rooting for the Evil Empire much but i hope Brady crowns their ass.

  11. Fire em up all you want Tomlin but if you think bringing 6 FGs into Foxboro is gonna get it done you’re crazy.

    Patriots hang at least 28 on your sorry ass defense so bring your “A” offense next week

  12. The Steelers will run their mouths all week saying negative things about the Pats, and keep running them if the win or lose. And if they lose they’ll be whining like 2 year old girls who dropped their lolly in the sand.

    The Pats will say respectful things about the Steelers during the week and be respectful after the game, win or lose.

    Who’s the a-hole again Tomlin?

  13. LOL @Greglloydrules

    Pat’s fans don’t think it will be easy, we just know we tend to beat your team.

    Love hearing how awesome the Steelers defense is now. Hope we hear it all week.

    How will Brady stand up to the tough Steelers defense?

    Bring it on.

    #DriveFor5

  14. This speaks VERY poorly about Antonio Brown’s decision-making. At best, it was childish & immature. Maybe he’ll try the “I was hacked” excuse.

    If there isn’t already an NFL rule against it, I expect one.

    ———————————————————-

    I agree with all of the above. If the Pats had not been so successful during this millennium, Tomlin, and many others, would not suffer from so much foot in mouth disease when talking about the Pats.

    The insults are compliments fellow Pats fans, but we do so love to respond.

    Good luck to the Steelers this week.

  16. I for a Patriots fan would be happier with KC.

    On the other hand: if you wanna be a Superbowl winner you have to be able to beat anyone. Saturday game was a good wake up call for New England.

    For sure the Steelers will need more than fieldgoals to beat the Brady Bunch.

    Go Pats!

  17. It’s all in good fun. Fans of both teams will be jarring all week and they should be. But what I love most is that Bungals and Rarbird fans are still running their mouths. Just come out of the closet already.

  18. Not a fan of either team, and especially not a fan of Tomlin, but…..he didn’t say something that is incorrect. Brady and Belicheck do indeed fit the description.

  19. As a Pats fan, this is non news. We’ve had worse talk leading up to big games. Sometimes it appears to fuel a big win, sometimes it appears to have zero impact.

    BB will tell you, the only thing that matters is which team makes a couple more plays will win on Sunday.

    Patriots will not be as sloppy; doubt Steelers will either. Should be a great one!

  20. Streaming it to the public probably wasnt the best idea Antonio.

    But nothing he said was bad. This is just way many people talk. If your a flower and bothered by it you probably shouldnt be watching live streams from locker rooms.

  21. If you clowns would have read the article instead of jumping to the comment section soon as you saw Tomlin name, this whole situation was to stay inside the locker, but everyone love to post s#it online, surprise there is not a video like this Evey Sunday before a game!!!

  22. Bulletin board material? The next game is for a SuperBowl spot. If the Patriots need bulletin board material to get fired up, then they wont be in the Super Bowl.

  23. I would like to point out to the Steelers that if you put the ball in the end zone it is worth more points than kicking it through the big yellow post.

  24. AB might be the best WR in the league, but apparently he is also the dumbest. Hope his teammates tear him a new one for this. Locker room stuff stays in the locker room.

  25. Only fans think this is motivation for the Pats. Patriots are likely focused on playing better than they did vs Houston. Think whatever you like, but Pittsburgh is coming to Foxborough to punch NE in the mouth. You’re gonna have to earn this one. 9 straight wins and counting.

  26. I don’t see any thing wrong with what the coach said.

    I would, however, have a problem with a player streaming what is said — and seen — in a locker room.

  27. Weren’t two Steeler game-balls under inflated in Giants game? No problem or comments there, right trippy Tomlin? ‘Mr. Integrity’ Roger let you off the hook with in hours. Show some respect for your opponent and control your locker room while your at it.

  28. It’s what I would expect from a classy organization like Pittsburgh who had Joey Porter on the sidelines last night. Last I heard he was suspended for his criminal activity but I guess in Pittsburgh you can assault people on Sunday, be suspended and then back on the sideline the following week.

    As for this coming Sunday, I’ll be interested in how the game is reffed as the game against the Texans was atrocious and we all know how a well timed questionable holding call is used to help the Steelers in big games.

  29. What Antonio Brown did shows the world how undisciplined the squealers are and have no respect for Mike Triplin.
    The Pats are the best team in the red zone. field goals will guarantee them an opportunity to clean out their lockers a week from today.

  30. Speeches like this happen all the time in locker rooms. Belichick probably has had a speech like this before except his players weren’t stupid enough to post it on social media. This game will be intense regardless of what’s said. Tomlin is one hell of a coach and deserves to be viewed that way.

  31. Everyone knows only the Ravens would give the Patriots a game next week…would probably still lose, but it would be epic, and maybe they’d pull off the upset. Steelers? LMAO. Tomlin’s cheerleader squad is no match for Brady & Belicheck. It won’t be close, but we can probably count on cheap shot artists Shazier, Dupree and Mitchell to go head hunting when their sorry defense is exposed. I hate the Patriots, but the scum runs deep amongst Triplin, Joey & the dirty players on the Stillers (James Harrison doesn’t play dirty, but his blood is dirty with roids). Will be nice to watch them get the beating they so richly deserve!

  32. I don’t think Brown is even allowed to post locker room footage contractually. The NFL has the rights to that footage and uses it very sparingly. This is going to turn into a bigger problem for Brown.

    Where did you get this information? I doubt there are many Pats fans who think this game is going to be easy.

  34. Dude this is the locker room. He can say whatever he wants in there. Someone above me mentioned class? Haha, the locker room isn’t your safe space snowflake.

    And I mean, he’s not wrong.

  35. Longtime Pats season ticket holder here-I’m not bothered by this.

    The fan bases tend to hate on each other more than the ball clubs do.

    It is an insight into how much that extra day off and travel time bothers their coach though…

  36. It’s not what Tomlin said…locker room motivation….it’s how the team listened to hm before and after the speech. If Edelmann had done that I doubt he’d be part of the game plan, record or not. Does anyone really think that team respects Tomlin after that action? It’s unreal!!!

  37. The Pats will have a guy in the building that will do more than just fire up Tom Brady and it ain’t Tomlin:

    Roger Goodell.

  38. I just thought about something the Patriots better be worried about. If they are running down the Steelers sideline, they should watch out for Tomlin trying to trip them.

    Get back to me when you are #Driving for 7

  40. You guys seriously don’t think the Belichick has said at least one thing derogatory about their upcoming opponents behind closed doors? I don’t even like Tomlin, but this is stupid. Brown was a fool for posting it, but I have a hard time seeing the Pats take this as some kind of “motivation” when their own coach uses the exact same kind of “us against the world/enemies” talk to fire up his team. Not a big deal.

  41. From what I heard in the video and given the fact that Mr. Tomlin wears a cross on the sidelines, I must say I do not recognize the type of “religion” being portrayed by the Steelers.

  42. A big part of an NFL team’s Management and Coaching is dealing with players who have tremendous talent below the neck, but few smarts above it.

  43. One of the dumbest coaches in the league. Always has been.

    Only a team led by Mike Tomlin would have a player tell everyone no drama this week and keep a low profile, only to use social media to do the opposite.

    It’s not shocking Tomlin and his ilk has little respect for the Pats, after we’ve learned about all the under-handed cheating behind the scenes with Goodell, out there on Park Ave.

    The officiating will also heavily favor Pitt.

    If Goodell ordered Morelli to do what he did on Saturday, I can only imagine what Pitt gets on Sunday to help them extend drives.

  44. Flaco joining the Burgh’s troll chorus is priceless, the whole AFC north is under the Patriots thumb. Those stealers though men are the ones that have something coming.

  45. The Steelers will run their mouths all week saying negative things about the Pats, and keep running them if the win or lose. And if they lose they’ll be whining like 2 year old girls who dropped their lolly in the sand.

    The Pats will say respectful things about the Steelers during the week and be respectful after the game, win or lose.

    Who’s the a-hole again Tomlin?

    105 28

    Come on dude that’s pretty harsh I mean his comments were made in the euphoria of a victory….And should never have been shared with the public. If you had played sports you would understand, but you probably didn’t and are the over reacting….a-hole….as usual.

  46. Pats fan with no problems with Tomlin’s comments. How do you think we talked about our toughest competitors when I was playing sports?

    Hard nose talk about a tough competitor.

    This game is going to be a classic! I already can’t wait.

    GO PATS!

  47. We all know what Mikes saying here is that the Patriots are too white ! When they go low the a~holes go high !!!!

  48. Typical Steeler hubris, I remember when the Steelers “basically went to the Super Bowl” in the 2001 season, they spotted those a’holes a 21-3 lead and then held them to 3 points the rest of the way. Hope Tomlin’s headphones get frozen to his ears

  49. The real story is that Tomlin can’t handle a little schedule variation. “Oh we had to play Sunday night and fly home, wahhh!” Brought to you by the same guy that blames other people when he forgets to turn on his own headset.

  50. As a Pats fan, I was excited to see what kind of new bulletin board material Tomlin gave them…but honestly, this is a non-story to me.

    Despite the outrage Terry Bradshaw caused, he wasn’t wrong. Mike Tomlin is a big time ‘rah-rah’ type of coach. They JUST finished a hard fought game (where they scored no touchdowns), and he’s pumped up and emotional. I bet he says that line regardless of who they’re playing.

    And even if he doesn’t, even if he meant it specifically for the Patriots, he’s 2-5 against the Patriots since he became the coach of the Steelers, so he’s a little salty.

  51. As a big patriots fan I have a ton of respect for the Steelers organization. However Tomlin, shut the hell up! You made a stink about losing on opening night because of headset issues saying “we have a history of that stuff” yet those are keague provlems. Belichick lost 3 days of preparation for the super bowl to figure out BALL DEFLATION including interviews with Tom, Steve, equipment manager and the governor of Massachusetts! Grow the hell up and quit acting like one of the boys.! If you beat us Sunday, congratulations.

  52. Wait a minute, I thought that Lebron James said that there was never foul language in the locker room. He said that athletes discus French philosophy and Western literature there…

  53. Hysterical. No problem with anything the coach said, if you’re over the age of 8 you really shouldn’t be offended by that language. HOWEVER….AB broadcasting it on Facebook Live for Pats to hear and generate some extra motivation, that deserves to be the #1 “C’MON, MANNNN!!!” of the week.

  54. Same franchises that were in the 2002 AFC Championship Game. One team had their bags packed for the Super Bowl. The other team just took care of business.

    Some things don’t change….

  55. As a Bengals fan it’s obvious which team I want to lose. That said, the last half of the season, the Steelers and Patriots were the two best teams in the AFC and they both deserve to be in this game. I just hope the refs don’t try to take anything away from the game with stupid, ill-timed calls. Let them play.

  56. “Flaco joining the Burgh’s troll chorus is priceless, the whole AFC north is under the Patriots thumb. Those stealers though men are the ones that have something coming.”

    so…..how far did you get in grade school?

    You’re the dumbest poster on PFT, have been since last year’s AFCCG. You know, the last time your fellow arrogant fans were saying the pats were gonna win before the game was played.

  58. Pats fan here. Pittsburgh will be tough. Really tough. We barely beat them with Ben on the bench.

    Cannot see a problem of a coach motivating a team immediately after a big victory. When the doors are closed, it’s just possible that Belichick swears. Only difference — and it’s not a minor difference — is that players don’t post video of it.

  59. Much to do about nothing. Now Antonio Brown is a complete idiot but that’s just locker room talk. Now if Rodney Harrison was playing at full speed and heard this I would not want to be a Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver but we don’t have anybody that hit quite like that so I don’t think there’s going to be any tangible effect from a physical standpoint.

  60. Actually, since it was the locker room, I’m surprised that the comments weren’t worse.

    Hoping that somehow the Steeler’s figure out how to get the ball into the end zone next week because FG’s aren’t going to cut it.

    Don’t find anything wrong with Tomlin’s speech, probably would have been said about any opponent.

    While Brown is a premier wide receiver, not the brightest bulb in the lamp.

    And just saying: that 38 year old linebacker from Pittsburgh is outstanding!

  61. Antonio Brown is a freaking idiot for that. In the euphoria of the locker room and winning in that fashion on the road, I get what Tomlin is saying. If it were NFL Films, he would probably have avoided that.

  62. Just think, if Tomlin hadn’t said anything or Brown hadn’t posted the video, the Patriots might have showed up to the game unmotivated and the Steelers might have caught them off guard… in the AFC championship game.

    Lol.

  63. This is the kind of thing every coach says in the locker room. It never should have been posted and will provide bulletin board fodder for the Patriots. Not that they need it. The Steelers have never beaten Brady in a meaningful game. Ever. Try as I will, I can’t imagine that changing on Sunday. The Steelers are too inconsistent. The most they can hope for is a competitive defeat.

    This is my last look at PFT for the week. I just can’t bear the relentless preening from the bandwagon Patriots fans — most of whom couldn’t find Foxboro on a map.

  64. Pats played Sat t 8pm, Steelers played at 8pm Sunday night.

    How is that “spotting them and day and half”????

    I guess Tomlin is a cheerleader and a math major

  65. I’m sure that kind of talk goes on in every locker room, the game is won and lost on the field, this is the playoffs everything is on the line so this means nothing. Tomlin didn’t say anything that most outside of Pat’s fans already feel anyways.

    Here’s hoping that the winner of GB-Atl game wins the Super Bowl!!!!!

  66. I really don’t think he meant that the Patriots were A holes. It was generic to any opposition. If one team constantly kicked the crap out of another team for close to 15 years, I suppose the team that was taking those beatings would consider the other to be A holes. As a Patriots fan, I seriously do not understand why the Ravens give the Patriots fits and the Steelers always seem to lie down.

  67. Complaining already about the extra day of preps. This guy is always whining. Or tripping someone on the sidelines. A classy organization with great fans, but a douche of a coach. Pats fan since ’62.

  68. The thin-skinned lily toes leftists of the NE re going to need to gather for teers, hugs, hot chocolate & singing “Everythings Going To Be Alright” in their safe place…

    Buy stock in Kleenex!!!

    If you take into consideration the travel time back to Pittsburgh Tomlin is correct. While the Patriots game began/ended approximately the same time. The Pats are home and the Steelers are still traveling. Just saying, before you criticize understand the situation.

    ——————————————–
    Lifelong Pats fan. Who cares what Tomlin said in the Steelers locker room? How do you get from Tomlin being able to fire up his team to the silly conclusion that Pats fans think the game will be easy? It’s the Conference Championships, and they ain’t playing the Colts. Will be a hell of a game and hopefully the Pats will find a way.

  74. Next to Rex Ryan, Tomlin is the biggest meathead to occupy a HC job. That being said, he really didn’t do anything that other coaches don’t do in the privacy of the locker room. The difference is most other coaches have players that are smart enough not to post something like this on social media.

  75. One of the dumbest coaches in the league. Always has been.

    Only a team led by Mike Tomlin would have a player tell everyone no drama this week and keep a low profile, only to use social media to do the opposite.

    Do you ever read what you post? If you want dumb …look in the mirror. Check Tomlins record and you will find out just how dumb he has been in his first ten years as a coach, but wait that takes intelligence to research the facts before posting…. stop crying you are embarrassing the good Patriot fans out there which there are…..I know because most of my family loves the cheetahs..

    ——————————————
    Belichick isn’t the classlessly coarse cheerleader type, no. I’ve become a big admirer of his over the years, and though he knows all the swear words and clearly muttered some to himself in wk17 when he saw that Miami had watered the field (i.e., deliberately allowed it to deteriorate), I don’t think I’ve ever seen or heard him be derogatory or coarse about an opponent. That’s just not his way, nor does he falsely accuse others when he loses like Tomlin does, nor does he trip opposing players. Basically, Belichick is a very classy guy and Tomlin very much isn’t. Sorry.

  77. Of all the things to complain about Tomlin, I hardly think this is a big deal. Tomlin isn’t that good of a coach. I can’t think of a single Steelers win that is because of his coaching. This is the idiot who tried to trip a returner who was about to take a kickoff to the house.

    I think this comment is a badge of honor that the Patriots will wear. It is somewhat satisfying to know how much you get under your opponents skin. I think they also realize it’s just rah-rah BS.

    The fact is the Steelers don’t match up well against the Pats. They are 3-9 vs Tom Brady and Belichick, including 0-2 in AFC Championships. After watching them be kept out of the endzone against KC, I don’t see this changing anytime soon.

    New England played at home, Pittsburgh landed after 4 AM Monday morning, back home by 6 AM

  79. 1. I enjoyed the opportunity to see the over-the-top locker room celebration after squeaking out a win. The Pats rolled their opponent but their locker room was far more reserved and business-like…as clearly they expected more from themselves despite the blowout.

    2. Can anybody remember any Steeler win where the perception was that Tomlin outcoached the opposing coach?

    3. This incredibly idiotic video will have no impact on the AFCG. The Patriots would’ve have rolled these jokers with or without the clown show.

  80. @2dollarpbrs if you only were as fast with the calculator as with the gun…
    pats played at home, tomlin says steelers will touchdown 4am monday !!!
    there you go, need me to finish your homework as well?

  81. What a JOKE.

    I watched the game last night, and let me tell you, the Steelers are going to lose.

    Both KC and PIT looked totally incapable of pulling off a win in Foxboro against a fired up BB & Brady.

    The Texans game was PERFECT for the Pats because it was a Trap Game and they got it out of the way.

    Patriots will be Marching to SB LI = TRIUMPHANTLY

  82. Totally agree with Exiledinphilly, this is my last look at PFT this week.

    With all the idiotic comments from Tomlin and Earl Thomas, I don’t need to read more senseless crap from the usual Pitt posters.

    Let me be clear, the Pitt posters are unlike any Steeler fans I meet at games or in public. Those fans are polite, knowledgable and respectful. They are secure in their teams accomplishments, which make them pro football royalty. They also know that they are not 51-0 in Super Bowls and other teams are pretty good too.

    The majority of Pats fans respect the Steelers and know how tough of an opponent they are. That’s why it was so awesome to win those AFCCG years ago.

    But I’m sure this week we will hear about PSI and headsets and blah blah blah.

  83. “Flaco joining the Burgh’s troll chorus is priceless, the whole AFC north is under the Patriots thumb. Those stealers though men are the ones that have something coming.”

    Hey Einstein how far did the Pat’s have to travel home from their Sat game…..? How far and long is a flight from KC to Pittsburg…. kids say the dumbest things. I guess you are still drooling over the high school cheerleaders….

  85. When a team can’t even score a touchdown and have to rely on the refs to win it for them in the last few minutes, I guess belittling a real team instead of talking up your OWN team is the only thing that the coach can do. I have a feeling most AFC fans will be begrudgingly going for the “A-holes” next week. It is just impossible to root for the team from Pittsburgh.

  86. ^^^Brady in his slippers Sunday morning. Steelers climbing into bed Monady morning. All day Sunday + most of the day Monday = day & 1/2

  87. Interested to see what effect (if any) this has? In the 2000 playoffs someone with the Titans staff lplayed Brian Billicks pregame locker room speach over the intercom (someone also stole Trent Dilfers playbook probably on Jeff Fishers orders), anyways that just pissed off the Ravens and if anything hurt the Titans. Still, not a bright move for a team the Steelers have never beaten.

  88. Posting video = stupid. That said, I REALLY doubt the Pats are either insulted nor motivated anymore. Steelers know they are going in to face the best. It’s gonna take their best game to win it. I HATE Brady & Belichick… why? Because they’re so damn good. Gonna be a great game. It will be played hard by both.

  89. I can`t even believe this is even considered a story by the media. It was a completely innocuous comment that would have applied to whatever opponent they were playing. Pretty sure the Pats don`t need bulletin board material to get fired up for the Conference Championship.

  90. Let me help you figure it out 2dollar – NE players were back at their home Saturday night after the game. Steelers players home Monday morning at 4am. The difference between Saturday night and Monday morning is about a day and a half. Geez, was it that hard to figure out?

  91. “That’s against our team policy,” Tom Brady told WEEI’s Kirk and Callahan Show on Monday morning. “I don’t think that would go over well with our coach.”

    “Every coach has a different style. Our coach, he’s been in the league for 42 years and he’s pretty old school. He’s not into social media, and I think he lets everyone know that. I think our team has a policy. We don’t show anything that should be private because he feels when we are inside our stadium, inside the walls, there has to be a degree of privacy that we have. What’s done in the locker room should stay in the locker room.”

  92. Locker room talk of an undisciplined team. Not sure how complaining about landing at 4:00 am is considered a motivational speech.
    The difference in discipline will be that the Pirates will be slapping each other on the back while watching the video 50 times a day and the Patriots will be benched by Belichick if they are caught watching anything other than tape of the Pirates that is specifically related to doing their job.
    It will be a good game. We’ll see which preparation procedure produces the best results.

  93. As a Pats fan I don’t have any problem with the content of what Tomlin said. I think the much bigger issue is Brown’s blatant violation of his own team’s privacy. It would really bother me if a player on the Pats did that regardless of what was said.

    If a white coach was talking trash it, he would get put out to dry. Sick of the race card. Terry Bradshaw was 100% right.

    You’re playing the race card, yet you’re sick of it? Classic.

  95. Aww, the Patriots had an extra day and a half? Your flight is getting in late?

    I love that the Steelers couldn’t even wait an hour after beating KC to start making excuses for their loss next Sunday!

    Tomlin is trying to get his team fired up although Antonio Brown shouldn’t have been recording. This is bulletin board material
    —-

    It’s wishful thinking that this is bb material. He made an honest observations, and used profanity. If the Pats even consider this, then, it’s at most a distraction for them. Not going to fire them up.

  97. There are people that think not all coaches speak like this? tomlin just got filmed, but this is how all head coaches talk.

    Haters gonna hate. Ravens, Dolphins, Chiefs… all dead at the hand of the Steelers. I love it.

  98. Wow AB, what happens in the locker room stays in the locker room until media is allowed in. A video? Way to throw your coach under the bus and lose the trust of your team mates!

  99. Poor Steelers have less time to prepare than the Patriots…Tomlin, quit your whining. Did the Patriots cause the ice storm that forced your game to be moved back? Already starting with the excuses…. You set a great example for your players. Nice job.

    Hardy an excuse but a statement of fact. Pat’s had Sunday off an can prepare on Monday am while the Steelers have barely been off the plane and made into bed. Sometimes your lack of common sense is far more than a shake of my head…it’s the dummying down of America….don’t just think about yourself ..look at the reality of it.

  102. Whatever. This isn’t anything new, a coach firing up his team. Now having the IQ of a gnat (sorry gnats) to stream it on FB? That’s ah, unique? Thank goodness A.B. can run fast and twerk cuzz he surely doesn’t use his grey matter wisely.

    One of the dumbest coaches in the league. Always has been.

    Only a team led by Mike Tomlin would have a player tell everyone no drama this week and keep a low profile, only to use social media to do the opposite.

    It’s not shocking Tomlin and his ilk has little respect for the Pats, after we’ve learned about all the under-handed cheating behind the scenes with Goodell, out there on Park Ave.

    The officiating will also heavily favor Pitt.

    If Goodell ordered Morelli to do what he did on Saturday, I can only imagine what Pitt gets on Sunday to help them extend drives.

    This post is stupid on so many levels it’s pathetic…. Tomlin is a graduate of William and Mary in addition to being a highly successful NFL HC while your claim to fame is your nonsensical daily muttering of an attention seeking troll …..and the dumb one is Tomlin…..right?

  104. Poor Steelers have less time to prepare than the Patriots…Tomlin, quit your whining. Did the Patriots cause the ice storm that forced your game to be moved back? Already starting with the excuses…. You set a great example for your players. Nice job.

    From your self serving perspective it will seem to be complaint but we’re the shoe to be on the other foot the victims of New England would bleating like the sheep they are. Don’t expect unbiased thinking from thin skinned homers……baaa baaaa

  105. Tomlin made some comments to his team that were supposed to remain internal, just like every coach does. Frankly I thought it was mild, aND he evendors instructed his tear to tone down the soctal media. AB does a stupid thing broadcasting it, not Tomlin.

    But if the Patsies need something like this to get motivated to play the Steelers, then they probably already lost the game. I hope they talk abput all week and inside the lockerroom, that means the Steelers got in their head. Yes, they deserve to be favored and are a really good team. But both these teams have to play better next weekend. The Steelers will be the underdog and will be out for revenge since the Patsies have had their number for a while.

  106. Big Ben lost a playoff game to Tebow, what chance do the Steelers have against the Patriots?

  107. lol at all the Steelers haters…who cares, it was right after a huge playoff win….

    the only ahole is selfish Antonio Brown, love him, best wr in nfl, but grow up….

    look at Brady’s afc champ game stats… 12 td 12 int…avg as can be…

    this game is anyones….59-10.hahahhahahhahahahahha

    tylawspick6- d bag

    cheers

  108. Whether Brown puts it on social media or not, the Pats were going to hear it. They have bugs in every locker room, not just Foxborough

  109. The thin-skinned lily toes leftists of the NE are going to need to gather for teers, hugs, hot chocolate & singing “Everything’s Going To Be Alright” in their safe place…Whaaahburo! The Charles is a river of teers, crybaby runoff!!!

    Buy stock in Kleenex…

  110. Go to You Tube and search Brady sideline rants! It’s great entertainment and shows just how intense he is. He might even use a cuss word or two…or more.

    Give Tomlin a break. It’s just coaching.

  111. Tomlin will have his team ready to do the unthinkable which is to go into foxboro and take out Belichick and Brady….he has his 3 headed monster in the playoffs for the first time and believe me they will not lay down for the Pats….

    —————–

    They all swear, but I’m sure most coaches don’t allow it to be posted on social media…right before the AFCCG. I don’t care about what Tomlin or anyone else thinks of the Patriots. It was the whining that irked me. You leave the excuses behind and bring your A game or go home. Send that message to your players. That’s what a GOOD head coach does.

  113. My nephew last night saw BIG Ben and said (unprovoked) that, “Ben in a football helmet looked like a fat Will Ferrell.” He is four and we all fell out laughing all over the place. NE will neutralize Bell and make Ben beat them. Ben cannot beat them, he is a shell of his former self, not literally of course since he is fat.

    Feel sorry for your 4 year old nephew. Poor kid never had a chance and is gonna grow up a pompus fool who supports cheating just like his uncle.

    Hey Einstein how far did the Pat’s have to travel home from their Sat game…..? How far and long is a flight from KC to Pittsburg…. kids say the dumbest things. I guess you are still drooling over the high school cheerleaders….

    —————

    If Pittsburgh had a better record, they would have been the #1 seed, and would be hosting their games. But they didn’t…that’s part of being in the playoffs-your record. Who is responsible for the Steelers record? The Patriots? Wow.

  115. My Patriots looked a bit listless and rusty the other night. Credit to Houston, but the Patriots were clearly off. The turnovers showed that.

    I was worried that they lacked inspiration and focus….this will help.

    Pats vs Steelers? Cheering for a meteor to crash into the field
    ——————————————————————–
    C’mon Pats and Steeler fans this is some funny stuff here. Consider it a badge of honor that both franchises are hated this much. It’s pure jealousy so see it for what it is. Good job ez, as always I appreciate witty banter as opposed to those who feel the need to attack at every turn.

  117. Anyone whining about Tomlin’s language obviously never played sports. This is locker room talk as it happens when the cameras are off. You’re pretty naive if you don’t think Belichick ever used R-rated terms to describe his opponents. The difference is, he doesn’t have any players dumb enough to live-stream them.

    This is the Odell Beckham principle, period. Brown now either goes out and balls out Sunday, or he becomes a one-man yacht crew.

  118. I for one as a steeler fan of 45 + years is damned sick of
    AB’s clownish behavior on the field and now in the locker room , he must have had at least 5 celebration penalties this season and I have tired of the act. He was a revelation the 1st few years but enough is enough.
    I would have a very hard time making him the highest paid wr in the league as has been reported as possible if that is the judgement is thinks is proper.

  119. Pats played Sat t 8pm, Steelers played at 8pm Sunday night.

    How is that “spotting them and day and half”????

    I guess Tomlin is a cheerleader and a math major
    ____________________
    Well, since he is standing in KC when he is saying it while the Pats played at home – hence a half-day of travel. Since you would have to add that travel day to the equation, then maybe it’s algebra. I suppose you can’t handle anything beyond 2 + 2? Yes?

    It’s what I would expect from a classy organization like Pittsburgh who had Joey Porter on the sidelines last night. Last I heard he was suspended for his criminal activity but I guess in Pittsburgh you can assault people on Sunday, be suspended and then back on the sideline the following week.

    As for this coming Sunday, I’ll be interested in how the game is reffed as the game against the Texans was atrocious and we all know how a well timed questionable holding call is used to help the Steelers in big games.

    The only monster I saw yesterday was Boswell and his 6 field goals. Save for one holding call the Steelers could very well be packing and on the golf course tomorrow.

  122. Time for preparing????

    We had about 3 days to prep for the Superbowl due to the bogus framegate investigation instead of the normal two weeks.

    The team still did their job.

  123. Good lord, good to hear a coach calling out the Patriots what everybody outside of NE thinks of them. Only I would tag Cheaters on the end. Still it will not stop the Steelers from getting whipped. The Patriots cheating their way to victory or not are still the best team in the NFL. It beggars belief why they had to resort to such tactics and I am not talking about the latest fiasco that Brady and the Patriots were punished for because I am still unsure if it was cheating or just a little tweaking of their equipment which by all accounts quite a few teams do.

    The 2 pt conversion would have only tied the game, not given KC the win.

  125. Stupid video. Antonio Brown just stands there preening and grinning “Loook at me! Look at me!!!”
    Great player, but he’s as narcissistic as anyone.

  126. For those saying that the stealers landed at 4 am, they could avoided the trip if they had beaten the Patriots the dolphins plus a couple of teams. They play the schedule of a third seed, period.

    He is 100% right and correct because cheaters are A-holes.

    Uh, like a coach trying to trip an opposing player from the sidelines?

  128. Friggen Hilarious – you can hear Tomlin say “Don’t create any unnecessary distractions” as the Brown is creating one!

    Guess the Steelers now have multiple excuses ready if they lose!

  129. Antonio Clown is setting himself up for a disappointing season. Eventually, the refs will stop handing games to this bozo.

  130. Are you people serious? He made those comments in a closed locker room to his team. It’s not like he said it in a public press conference for the world to hear. Im sure if any Coach but Tomlin had said this it would be brushed off as locker room talk amongst tough guys.

  131. This is on AB not Tomlin. Show me a full UNEDITED locker room speech that doesnt have some ‘bulletin board’ material and some choice language. Just shouldnt stream it live.

  132. Yaaaay! Guys that don’t know me or care that exist are moving a brown ball up and down the field so I can post comments about how great they are while I feel self-important as though I had something to do with! Yaaaaaaay!

  133. Tomlin and Antonio, you really, really screwed up… Ha ha ha
