The Steelers are off to an uncharacteristic 0-2 start, and frustration seems to have begun mounting.

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that receiver Antonio Brown "confronted" offensive coordinator Todd Haley on the sidelines during the team's Monday night loss to the Bengals.

Brown “angrily complained” he wasn't getting enough targets. In the game's first half, he was targeted just three times. His tactic worked to an extent, however, as he finished the game with nine catches for 57 yards.

Still, Brown and Haley were still “seething about it” on Tuesday. Peculiarly, no video footage of the supposed incident has emerged.

While Brown is showing shades of Keyshawn Johnson by asking to be thrown the damn ball, his complaints are largely justifiable.

Brown is the team's top wideout following the departure of Mike Wallace, and possesses game-changing ability. That third-string receiver Jericho Cotchery more first half targets (five) than him is a glaring indictment of Haley.

Of course, this is far from the first player to take umbrage with Haley. Last season, Ben Roethlisberger was rumored to be frustrated with Haley's system, and finally admitted as much in July.

Look for the Steelers to feed Brown the ball in Week 3, if only to prevent things from really getting out of hand.
