What makes AB so special?
The NFL Good Morning Football crew decided to tackle the question of what makes receiver Antonio Brown so special. Is it his fancy dance moves? His flashy cars? His changing hairstyles? His touchdown celebrations? His unwavering dedication to continuously improving himself?
It’s hard to point out just one thing. It’s a combination of everything that makes Brown the best receiver in the league and I don’t think there’s any reason to expect a dip in his production any time soon. Brown won’t stop until he sees his reflection in the Lombardi trophy.
Who wins the AFC Championship?
The NFL analysts combined to predict who they think will go all the way this season. Everyone weighed in and the two most popular picks were the Steelers or the Patriots.
Judy Battista says Pittsburgh will be the better offense over the Patriots while Gil Brandt takes the Patriots with the Tom Brady advantage. Maurice Jones-Drew thinks Pittsburgh will be more than surprising team Kansas City Chiefs can handle.
Former Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor mortally betrays us by saying the AFC Championship will be the Patriots coming out on top over the Houston Texans. Why you gotta play us like that, Ike?
