Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was not one bit happy with the taunting penalty Antonio Brown received Sunday and he addressed the matter with the guilty party and the team as a whole.
I not only spoke to Antonio, but I spoke to our team about it, Tomlin said today at his weekly press conference. Briefly, simply what I said is that it was not respectable.
Brown, a wide receiver and kick return specialist, was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct while running 78 yards for an apparent punt return touchdown in the 27-12 win over the Redskins.
But two Steelers were penalized on the play cornerback Curtis Brown for an illegal block in the back and Brown for running backwards for the last 20 yards of his return.
Those of us that know Antonio and watch him work on a day to day basis, if one word describes him professionally, its respectable, Tomlin said.
How he prepares, what hes willing to do, what kind of teammate he is, and thats represented in his play. Thats the way we approached it. I thought it was an awesome learning opportunity for the entire group because, as professionals, I think thats a word everyone would want to describe their play. I think people that dont see you work on a day to day basis are capable of making judgments about you personally and professionally based on what they see, so we want to do whats respectable. Thats what we talked about and kind of moved on. Source: Times Online Attached Thumbnails

Sadly for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown his backwards jaunt into the end zone on a punt return was all for naught.
Brown thought he had returned a punt 80 yards for a score and decided to cap it off with a back pedal from the twenty-yards out.
The only problem for Brown was that his return was called back due to a penalty:

I love this kid and the way he runs fits what the Steelers like to do. He runs downhill hard breaking arm tackles left and right. I wish he could of got his fat body in the endzone yesterday as he was given some shots in close, but his back to back 100 yard efforts have been impressive.

Anytime you feel you have a good ball club, as a head coach, you are looking for teams on the schedule that you feel will give your team their greatest challenge. I’ve learned with the National Football League that while it’s fun to look at the 16-game schedule before the season starts, it really doesn’t mean a whole lot. We can circle ‘big’ games and put little stars next...
This injury doesn't seem to be anything to worry about. Dwyer is coming off back-to-back 100 yard games and he's looked very strong. He downplayed the quad injury after it was mentioned by Steelers HC Mike Tomlin. Dwyer indicated that it won't hold him back.
