Antonio Brown, Ben Rothlisberger, Pittsburgh discussed on NFL Live
That means all, but one, only your Los Angeles chargers have the day off for a team charity event. We however start in Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Rothlisberger. Says he regrets how he reacted to a week, twelve loss to the Denver Broncos last season rocklets burger who haven't throw a late game interception in the end zone. Went on the radio show in late November and was critical of the route running by Antonio Brown. Looking at it on film, I can't tell you wanna call it or not obviously, but you know, he did undercut av. So who knows what would happen? And that's where I was. I talked AB AB. You have to come flat. You can't drift in the end zone because those undercuts can happen. Aby went on HBO the shop and said this about rothlisburger, oh years. The dude called me out. We lose a game. He's like, yeah. AD should have run a better routes. That's the type of guy he is he's still like he's the owner, bro. You through that expletive to the D line. How the am I gonna get it? You need to give me a better ball. And now rothlisburger with some time to think about it some hindsight. I took some heat and deservedly so for some of the comments on that show and especially towards him. He's talking about end, Tonio Brown. I genuinely feel bad about that. And I'm sorry, did I go too far after that Denver game probably? Antonio Brown had two words for the former quarterback, and this is in his response to rock lers burgers, mea culpa of source simply said that to face. Well, Jeremy Fowler, has been along for the whole wild ride joins us now from Pittsburgh, and we pick up Jeremy right where we left off. Well, Wendy, the wheel keep spitting here in Pittsburgh. The drama never ends, and Ben Rothlisberger took accountability. With these four words Tuesday, I lacked in leadership, rather burgers, said, when you miss the playoffs and don't win the division, I guess that falls on me. So he plans to refocus his efforts on getting his team ready for two thousand nineteen and bringing out the best out of the young players, getting to know them on and off the field now. That's the future but regarding the past route, this burger was very introspective. When I asked him, how he was left a process that messy divorce within Tonio Brown. Check this out. It was hard to process because I never knew anything the last time we spoke on Thursday before the last game. We hugged we, we had a great talk. Everything was good. And so I knew nothing. So it was hard for me to know anything. And then I heard from third party that their issues. So I reached out to him many times Semtex calls his oh for the season was over and never heard back. So I could never really find out what was going on. So for me, that's why it was so confusing. I, I didn't know where it came from. I mean the week before was the saints game. Right. I mean he unbelievable game. So I never really saw any coming. I would have loved to have had the chance to talk to him. And that's why I said yesterday, whatever I whatever I did to offend my job for it. I tried to do that in person and talk to him. But he just wouldn't allow to. I also as Big Ben about Brown's characterization that route, the speaker has an owner mentality that he's bigger than the team then said I don't know what he meant by that. So I really have no reaction. But once Brown was traded he decided it's not his style to bring up the past season. A focus on his guys in the locker room now and Rothlisberger pointed to his new contract. He said, I have three years left. I plan to honor the entirety of it. So as big picture goal is to make sure his guys stick together. We've been hitting it from all angles this off season. He said. Jeremy. Thank you. And again, I'm not kidding. I mean, literally, we pick up where we left off with only last time this time last year, we were talking about Levy on bell, and then it became Antonio Brown. Look, you know, he probably had no choice in Bahia mean Ben Rothlisberger..
