Antonio Brown - MATT SUNDAY / DKPS

Antonio Brown just can't help himself.

He got more money. He's out of Pittsburgh. But he's not done kicking up dust.

Sunday, a fan attempted to get under Brown's skin by tweeting him an image which congratulated JuJu Smith-Schuster on becoming the team's 2018 Most Valuable Player.

It worked.

Brown fired back with this:

It didn't take long for Smith-Schuster to respond, either:

And then, the kill shot:

Brown, of course, was referring to Smith-Schuster's costly fumble against the Saints during Week 16 of the 2018 season. Smith-Schuster lost the ball during the Steelers' final drive of the game, and the team lost, 31-28. Then, they missed the playoffs by a half game, and clearly Brown holds Smith-Schuster responsible.


Yeah, no, Mr. Brown. It doesn't work like that. Any number of plays cost the Steelers the season. You can't distill it down to one moment like that.

What's worse is that it shows Brown hasn't — and maybe can't — move on. It also gives some validity to the claims that Brown's antics began as a result of Smith-Schuster being voted the team's MVP.

You can cut this many ways, and none of them makes Brown look any better. This is just a bad, bad look for Brown. Consider it the 447th bridge he's burnt.
