Ryan Clark: Antonio Brown cussed out Dick LeBeau

Jay on the Island : 1/9/2019 10:33 am
Dick LeBeau was a Hall of Fame player in the NFL, and his long tenure as an assistant coach made him one of the game’s most respected figures. But Antonio Brown apparently didn’t show LeBeau respect.

That’s the word from former Steeler Ryan Clark, who once again described on ESPN today a time that he found Brown to be a bad teammate. Clark said that shortly after Brown signed a new contract in 2012, Brown verbally attacked LeBeau.

“Coming into the next practice, he just got his money, he cusses out Dick LeBeau. Coach LeBeau, somebody who Troy [Polamalu], myself, James Farrior, all respected so much that anything he ever said, there’s no reply,” Clark said. “We almost got into a physical altercation that day, me and Antonio Brown. Because my thing was, this is not how we behave. This is not how we act. And for sure we don’t talk to Coach LeBeau that way.”

Clark hasn’t played for the Steelers since 2013, but he said he has talked to players on the 2018 team who told him Brown has become a serious problem, and coach Mike Tomlin hasn’t handled it.

“This is a situation that Coach Tomlin has allowed to get out of hand. So now you have to think about moving him,” Clark said. “It’s been something that has been weighing on this team all year.”

From Clark’s perspective, Brown is a problem that has been weighing on the Steelers for several years.

Odell plays catch with a monkey and catches crap for it.

Brown is a serious diva and a headache.

Omar Epps was Darnell Jefferson who played for ESU, he should know diva's and headaches!

Monkey's are known to throw their own crap. Really just his own fault for catching it

Latimer would never talk to Dick LeBeau that way.

2012? What about when he was five years old and told his kindergarten teacher that he didn't want to take a nap?

Was thinking the same thing. Since 2012 the Steelers have 70 wins and went to the playoffs 4 times. I do think Tomlin has the same problem Coughlin did - tenured coaches that got comfortable and let things slide when they could have ended it upfront.

Brown may be a headcase

but this was 6 years ago. I dunno, but IMO players-turned-analysts should stick to insights regarding the game. Turns me off when a guy spills locker room stuff in the media. Its incredibly self serving. Just my opinion.

I agree with this. Completely self serving. Piling on to the situation with old in-house stories to further his career.

Fine line between "letting things slide" and being a "drill sergeant". TC probably shifted to far in the other direction after early criticism with the Giants.

The day I knew Coughlin lost it was when Odell went nuts on Norman in 2015. Coughlin then said: "I didn't know he had 3 personal fouls called against him."

Of course that was complete baloney, Coughlin knew but he was trying to save his job and only Beckham could have done that and he nearly did, too.

To be fair Pittsburgh’s QB may be the biggest “prima donna” in the nfl. Talks up his injuries, milks every second of the injury coverage, calls out his teammates, etc.

I think its a combination of a position that relies on another player more than any other position in any sport and it being a fairly dangerous even by football standards.

You have to be a little crazy to play it and being a squeaky wheel actually helps your production.

Why?

I'm not a fan of all the drama, but this information does add to the overall picture. I find it somewhat interesting, and perhaps pertinent.
diva receiva.

Interestingly, I guess it's always been a thing. At least as long ago before Jerry Maguire, which highlighted the personality in Cuba Gooding's character.
And that movie is old enough to drink.
I'm loving this.

He's lucky he plays in Pittsburgh and not NY. How on earth did this not get reported until now? In NY this would have been front page news that day.

Which makes me appreciate how even keel Eli has been. I have no idea how Big Ben did not take more shit for calling out James Washington earlier this year when he himself threw 2 picks in the same game!

They either need to fire Tomlin and hope a disciplinarian can straighten out the personalities, or just start over imo. As we've seen here, once you lose the locker room, it needs an enema.

Not just your opinion, if the Mark Herzlich thread from last week is any indication.

Agree and the problem that I had with Tiki was NOT his analysis of what is happening on the field with the team and Eli. Reality is he should call it as he sees it with no bias.

The issue was violating the sanctity of the locker room. You simply do not disclose things that others on the team have said behind those closed doors. We see players moving from one team to another. Even from a division rival and you rarely hear about them talking about private discussions that occurred with their old teams.

Until they start losing, there really is no need to change anything.

The point is to win games, not build a good locker room. Don't put the cart before the horse.


and by not changing anything

All these diva WR's make me appreciate Larry Fitzgerald more and more every day. Definitely a different cat as compared to many of the top WR's.
