PITTSBURGH — A day after making pointed comments about Antonio Brown‘s sideline behavior, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said holding players accountable is part of the job description.
On Tuesday, Roethlisberger told 93.7 the Fan he was disappointed in Brown’s “temper tantrum” during Sunday’s 26-9 win over the Baltimore Ravens. After not getting the ball downfield, Brown flipped a Gatorade bucket and angrily shrugged off offensive coordinator Todd Haley.
“I’d like to feel as a leader of this team that’s kind of my job,” said Roethlisberger, 35, citing 14 years of NFL quarterback experience. “You have to be able to talk to people, you have to be able to communicate in different ways. I’ve been doing this a long time. I feel as voted as a captain that’s kind of one the rules of being the captain.”
Roethlisberger also told 93.7 he prefers Brown talk
