  • Antonio Brown #84 of the Pittsburgh Steelers reacts after a 33 yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter during the game against the Green Bay Packers at Heinz Field

Steelers players vote for the award, which Brown had won four times in nine years.

Less than two hours later, Brown was doing just the opposite, replying to a Steelers fan who reminded him that Smith-Schuster was the team's 2018 MVP.

"I respect his game but I can't wait to smash this dude", Reid wrote, quoting Brown's tweet criticizing Smith-Schuster "No need for that".

On Sunday, things came to a boil when Brown called out Smith-Schuster for his fourth-quarter fumble in Week 16 against the Saints - a game the Steelers had to win.

What did Brown think this post was going to accomplish?

The whole situation has been bad for Brown, because while Smith-Schuster appears to have only respected him as a mentor, Brown just can not stop taking shots at him. Roethlisberger may have contributed to some of the tension by saying after a November loss to the Denver Broncos that the Steelers erred in drawing up a late, goal-line pass play for Brown and instead "should've went to [Smith-Schuster] four straight plays".

Once Kelly left the White House, Nielsen's days appeared to be numbered, and she had expected to be pushed out last November. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan would be taking over as acting head of the department .


After Smith-Schuster played in all 16 games previous year, with 111 catches for 1,426 yards he cemented himself as a fan favorite.

Smith-Schuster once recalled that message during his first offseason workouts with the team. After Smith-Schuster responded kindly on Twitter, seeming to take the high road, Brown wasn't done.

That tweet was soon followed by this advice from Brown: "Do not listen to any National Football League player who haven't got paid yet!"

Brown then produced an Instagram post shortly thereafter that showed him hugging Smith-Schuster.

As a result, Brown has fallen under harsh criticism from media and fans alike, and it doesn't seem like he is taking it too well.
