Antonio Brown sorry for streaming Steelers locker-room talk on Facebook

After Early Season Suspensions, Le'Veon Bell And Tom Brady Could Meet In AFC Championship Game

During the impromptu broadcast, coach Mike Tomlin could be heard addressing the team, which included remarks about the Patriots, whom the Steelers will face Sunday in the AFC Championship Game.

"He works extremely hard, he's extremely talented and those things get minimized with incidents like this", Tomlin said, per Bouchette.

Tomlin in his locker room speech said, "Let's say very little moving forward". Let's start our preparation. And I think it's just a blessing to know that they care about us. We're going to touch down at four o'clock in the [expletive] morning. "So be it. We'll be ready for their ass". "But you don't tell have to tell them we're coming". Keep a low profile. An unknown Steelers teammate can also be heard in the video saying, "keep cool on social media".

The Steelers will compete for their place in the Super Bowl at 6:40 PM ET on Sunday, January 22.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady also downplayed the significance of the video Monday, adding it's something that wouldn't happen in Belichick's locker room.

"I'll be bluntly honest here: It was foolish of him to do that", Tomlin said Tuesday, via Joe Giza of WBZ.

"As far as I'm concerned, everybody in this league is an a-h--,' in my opinion", guard Ramon Foster told reporters.

Of course part of the reason the video became as widely disseminated as it did was because it caught Tomlin calling the Patriots "a-holes".

Bell was also asked about teammate Antonio Brown's Facebook Live video in the locker room, which the National Football League is reviewing. I think that's oftentimes why you see great players move around from team to team.

Roethlisberger knows this. He might not be able to say it explicitly - answering "Yes, this is a huge deal" would create more problems than than the truth is worth - but it's human nature to want to beat the best, especially when they've beaten you before. He's respected largely in the locker room for those things, but incidents such as this don't help him in that regard.

It's an issue that popped up again on Sunday night, when Boswell drilled a post-season record six field goals to provide all of Pittsburgh's 18 points.

If they Steelers are to go into Foxborough and slay the dragon, Big Ben needs his entire army at their best.
