View Full Version : Antonio Brown becomes part of history

07-03-2012, 07:02 PM

Antonio Brown , along with his son, joined them for the day and after speaking with Hall of Fame officials was asked to send his game jersey from the 2011 season to the Hall of Fame for the Pro Football Today Gallery. Brown became the first player in NFL history to have 1,000 receiving yards and 1,000 total return yards in the same season. The jersey is now on display in Canton.

“It’s something unique,” said Brown. “To have my jersey there is something special. It’s an honor, something I can show my son, something that is amazing. It was great taking my son there. It helped him see what football history is all about.

I am shocked he was the first. Congratulations AB!

That's awesome. Hope this guy is a Steeler for a while :crossfingers:

Everything I've heard or seen about this young man has said 'Class Act' so far.

until he wants a new contract, then watch all of you throw him under a bus lol

If he produces better than or similar to last season, I won't be throwing him under the bus if he wants big coin. I've been saying it all along, one of the reasons the Steelers need to be very careful how they do the Wallace deal...they could screw themselves out of Brown...arguably the better talent.

I think it's safe to say that the Steeler nation is looking forward to many 1000 + yard receiving yard seasons from Brown going forward. Good for him. That was a nice thing for such a young guy to have something in the Hall of fame already.

i am a huge brown fan, always have been since the first time i saw him play in preseason, i just think its hilarious that 2 seasons with 1100 yards and 2 TDs is great and they HAVE to do everything to resign him next year, but 3 seasons with 3200 yards and 24 TDs equals not worth a big contract for wallace

baffling, brown is a great #2 and probably would be the BEST #3....but hes not a better talent than wallace, even if he had more catches during the second half of last year

Many Steeler fans just love to love the second fiddle guy, or the "hard nosed Steeler type" guy.

Wallace is only doing what he can to increase the amount of money he makes. I asked my boss for a raise yesterday, does that make me a bad guy?

Can we seriously just have a discussion about Brown instead of bringing up Wallace's contract situation. Lets get the thread back on track.

Way to go, Antonio. A true class act!

I know I was too, through all the decades of great players in history dating back to when football was really football it's hard to believe he's the first ever. The sky is the limit for him. This will be a big year though, can he continue his success now that he's not really a secret anymore?

07-07-2012, 08:06 AM
Hopefully he'll do it again this year.

He may get the receiving yards, but I think his special teams play is now history. He is too valuable to return kick-offs and punts.

Hopefully this isn't the last time the HoF recognizes him.
