Antonio Brown is officially the crazy ex you continue contemplating blocking on everything but just can’t. And truthfully, I feel bad for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
At 30-years-old my only goal is to not be Antonio Brown. Sure, I’d love to be an All-Pro wide receiver who’s made millions of dollars and will end up in the NFL Hall of Fame. But if it means continuing to let a group of people who mean nothing to me push me to the edge, I’ll take my two bedroom apartment in downtown Pittsburgh with my 2013 Honda Accord.
For a solid week, Antonio Brown was no where to be found. He wasn’t silent, but he was normal. Posting videos of him and Derek Carr, welcoming Raider Nation and not mentioning the Pittsburgh Steelers.
For one whole week.
But like every obsessed ex, he couldn’t let the happiness of his former team last longer than it should. While the Steelers locker room started to unite around a former NFL player who called out Ben Roethlisberger’s leadership, AB was sitting home plotting how he’d stir the pot.
Fans didn’t appreciate Ben being attacked. When James Harrison left, no one was real keen on Mike Tomlin being thrown under the bus. There aren’t many players fans would be okay with when it comes to trying to use in your propaganda, but none less okay than JuJu Smith-Schuster.
Remember when Brown unfollowed JuJu on Twitter? We do. It seems like he doesn’t like that someone was hunting for his job but he doesn’t like that people are forgetting about him even more.
At this point it’s becoming just as stressful to have Brown on another roster as it was to have him in Pittsburgh. He wanted desperately to be out of a Steelers uniform but won’t move on like the rest of the fanbase and organization are trying to do.
He may never leave the Steelers alone. Once Oakland starts losing, he could hit his peak of trolling this team. It’s hard to imagine he’s going to be fine with his former team heading towards the playoffs while he current one is in line for a top ten draft pick.
