According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown got in the face of offensive coordinator Todd Haley and angrily expressed his unhappiness with not getting the football.
The Steelers’ problems go deeper than their 0-2 record, and they bubbled over along the sideline in the second half of Monday night’s game in Cincinnati.
There, wide receiver Antonio Brown confronted offensive coordinator Todd Haley. Brown angrily complained to the coach that not enough pass plays were called for him, several sources told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Specifics of the argument were hard to come by but sources say that Haley was upset by Brown’s actions and that the two were still seething about it Tuesday. Brown’s complaint to Haley was harsh enough and the reaction to it along the sideline volatile to the point that many people there noticed, although it was not shown nor apparently caught on camera by anyone, including ESPN, which broadcast the game.
There’s no doubt that Haley is a big reason the Steelers offense has been so bad this season. Ever since he took over as their offensive coordinator last season, things have not been right.
