Antonio Brown - Official Thread


Recommended Posts

He played 21 out of 70+ snaps. He won’t need more than 8 targets a game to do top 5 damage, especially when they aren’t forcing him the ball. He’s also a big time red zone threat, which they will need without Gronk. 

I think people are vastly underestimating ABs talent. 

I beg to differ on being a AB being Top 5 with only 8 targets a game.He averaged 11.3 targets a game the past 5 years in PIT. Not sure he would still be Top 5 with a 30% drop in targets. Sure, he's a red zone threat, but NE has no problem using their RB's to get the ball in the end zone.

He probably got Cold Feet 

I have no love lost for the Raiders as a Bronco fan, but I feel this type of situation needs to be addressed by the NFL. The Raiders did the "right thing" here and in the end, they pay for it by one o

He was putting up other worldly numbers with an inefficient Ben R.

I respect your right to differ, but let’s check back in a couple of weeks... if Brown is still in the league.

Someone remind me, what happened the last time a hall-of-fame WR came to the Patriots from the Raiders?

You mean when the QB was 30 instead of 42? When the team had an offensive line and TE's that could block. When Brady had all day to throw the ball instead of getting the ball out in 2 seconds. When they weren't constructed to run the ball. When they threw to their RB's half as often as they do now. Yeah, I remember those days.

I'm not saying we're gonna get a repeat of Moss, just saying that the team that was always known for spreading it around to its no-name WRs changed when Moss got into town.

I just feel like people are over-analyzing the situation. AB is easily one of the best players in the league, and is now catching passes from the GOAT for as long as the NFL allows.

Not sure it needs to be more complicated than that.

I think it is more complicated than that. Moss had months to learn the playbook. Brown has had days. The 2007 offense skill position players were almost all new faces. This year, there were incumbents and people on the roster that have won Super Bowls and had defined roles.Moss had some off field stuff in the past, but nothing near the circus that Brown has had going on the past few weeks. Brown had times where he was cited for ad libbing plays. That won't fly with Brady. Sure, Brown is talented, but I think Brown will have to adjust more to AB than the Patriots will adjust to AB. Guess we'll have to see how it plays out (and if Brown is around the whole season).

in the 1 dynasty league where I own him, I'm starting AB this weekend with confidence 😐

Same ... and with thee exact amount of “confidence” you exuded. 

Brady will feed him. Because if He doesn’t, it’s a headache - some people will say he doesn’t need that headache. That is true.

But ... AB is easy to feed when he’s the best playmaker on the field. I really believe that’s what is going to happen, as long as AB is in the field.

sucks that NE doesn’t appear to have anyone good on the schedule

Antonio Brown runs the most precise routes of any receiver and has fantastic hands. Tom Brady is one of the most accurate QB's of all time. I don't think it is complicated at all.

Is he trying to get suspended? Now he's sending threatening texts to one of the women who spoke to a reporter about his conduct.

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/09/20/report-antonio-brown-harasses-latest-accuser-via-text-message/

Goodell should immediately put him on the exempt list for that... oh, hey pals, friends... go harass the #### out of this poor girl. Look how poor she is. What a psycho/meglomaniac

What if all NFL players acted this way? You would have absolute chaos. I know in my job that I would have been fired a long time ago for this awful behavior. It’s beyond ridiculous now NFL and he should be on the Exempt List prior to Sunday - everyone except his fantasy owners would rejoice ! 

Are you one of the Top 5 people in the world at what you do?

Not defending AB's actions, just sayin'.

He's playing by different rules than the rest of us because of his talent.

I understand your point - I’m sure you will agree it’s sad state that this is the reality !

I don't know that AB's text messages should be characterized as threatening.  He denied the claims and called her a "super broke girl" and claimed she had a lot of kids.  That is not especially intimidating.  Poor judgment? Absolutely.  Threatening?  Hardly.  Let's call off the lynching and allow AB due process.  Everyone is piling on AB now, including claims of dead fish and farting at his doctor's office.  If AB is the monster he has been described by his accusers as, I am confident he will face suspension, but let's not act too hastily.  Thus far, we have accusations.  Let the investigative process play out.  I am not defending AB, but the process that should be afforded an accused.

Interesting. See, I know my organization would fire a doctor who behaved in this say, even if he was top 5 in the world. 

Entertainment industry is different, for obvious reasons, but this statement above is quite ridiculous as a retort to anyone who says theyd be fired

He's playing by different rules than the rest of us because of his talent too many people live vicariously through the Top 5 people in the world with extraordinary skill sets.

FTFY!

Can Patriots fans say they don't want him loudly enough and then complain that nobody hears the Patriot fans insisting they don't want him?

What a weird dynamic this is. We get it. You hate the guy. It seems everybody have saved their five minutes of hate for 'Tonio. He's a piece of work and then some, and I don't underemphasize the "then some." Just an ###.

But as someone who rosters Gordon, I'm all in favor of long suspensions.

You're correct in there does not seem to be a direct threat, but just the act of targeting her via messaging and posting pictures of her children while asking this mysterious "Eric B" to "look into her background history" can certainly be seen as threatening.

Her lawyer makes a strong point about this sort of behavior being a primary reason why women are afraid to come forward.

Having said that... has it been confirmed that this group text was sent by AB? If it was, I believe that he will be taking a seat.
