After Antonio Brown threw a tantrum on the sideline, many questioned if the team chemistry was falling apart. Enter Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger. Roethlisberger came to Brown’s defense saying, “He’s probably the best wide receiver in the game now, maybe that ever played.”
Roethlisberger went on to say that the team has moved on and is focused on their game this week against Jacksonville. Brown wasn’t available to the media, but this is nothing out of the ordinary as he only speaks on Fridays. Brown’s eruption came after Roethlisberger missed Brown on several plays where he was open.
We’ve got amazing chemistry. I’d like to think we may go down as one of the best quarterback-wide receiver duos of all time. That would be an awesome honor because of the guys I consider up there.
QB, Pittsburgh Steelers
Steelers fans will be relieved that all is good in the Steelers locker room as many feared that both players would be on edge after the incident. The Steelers will host Jacksonville this Sunday at noon.
