Tomlin told reporters Tuesday he was agitated with Antonio Brown's backward punt return in Sunday's cakewalk over the Washington Redskins. It "wasn't respectable" said Tomlin, who spoke with Brown and the entire team about it.
With the Steelers up 27-9 in the third quarter, Brown fielded Sav Rocca's punt at his own 22. Breaking through a wave of Redskins defenders, Brown took off for the end zone. Nobody came close, prompting him to spin around at the Washington 20 and backpedal to paydirt.
Mirthful? Yes. Steelers football? Negative.
Upshot: Brown will be running eyes forward from now on.
