    Antonio Brown becomig a great 3rd down specialist

    Antonio Brown is quickly becoming the go to guy for the Steelers on 3rd down. That used to be Hines Wards' role but with Ward missing time and the young guys stepping up, it's paying dividends.

    He's not afraid to go up and make the catch in traffic, or coming across the middle knowing he's going to get blasted. His fearless attitude and sure hands are making him yet another go to guy for Ben when you have to move the sticks. Heath Miller is still a huge part of that arsenal and is no doubt needed going forward but you have to love with Brown is doing.

    Antonio Brown: 5 catches for 86 yds. He had a huge game today and came through on big play after big play.

    I disagree...He's becoming an every down target.

    No doubt in my mind Wallace, Sanders and Brown are all better targets than Ward right now. Add in Heath Miller and Jerricho Cotchery, and you have to wonder if Ward even has a place on this team next year. I love our receiving corps, now lets just bolster the line so Ben has all day to find these weapons downfield!

    AB has stepped it up and Ben has all the faith in the world in him! With Sanders healthy holy crap do we have weapons

    No doubt about it, he's a threat on any down at any point in the game. His route running is worlds better than it was even in the beginning of the season. Working with Ward for the last year and half since he's been in the league has really helped too. There's no better teacher than a legend like Hines.

    I still just can't get over the speed that the Steelers have at the receiver position now. Wallace, Brown, and Sanders are all blazingly fast and sure handed. When's the last time you've seen that on the Steelers?

    I wonder if there's anyone on these forums still saying Sanders is better?

    that my be my favorite quality of his, he gets so fired up out there.


    hes going to be so good, seriously ward serves no purpose anymore, like ive said for weeks cotchery is everything ward was 5-6 years ago and as a 3rd/4th WR can outproduce ward even if we force fed him the #2 spot
