    Antonio brown JR. in training.
    Talented beyond belief, but the diva is already showing. He'll be gone in a few years unfortunately.

    Seriously, not every game is going to go his way.
    He can't blame Pickett, he has been his favorite receiver since he has been in.

    yep, said something similar 2 weeks ago. Something is wrong in his head.

    Maybe a little too early to call that. Perhaps with influencers like Cam getting up in his grille to remind him what it means to be a team player might help. It will probably also help that he doesn't have a group of chuckleheads around him (cough cough young money cough) like some previous losers.

    He’s frustrated. It happens. He was right that he was open a lot. Just can’t have those public displays.

    When you’re the best player on offense and get 1 target all game while the WR making 18 million is dropping balls left and right, ya I’d be upset too.

    Been my concern about Pickens and sure seems to be something there. Hope it was just this or was about something else.

    DJ was not targeted a couple games ago, these things turn around game to game.
    He got plenty of balls since Kenny has been in. Pickens need to shut up and play. He probably already cost himself a few fans .

    Well, if I'm a WR rookie who wanted a shot at OROY, and am on a running team that wants to throw to bumble hands, why not complain. You are stuck in this situation through your rookie contract, maybe the team will unload you for being a malcontent.

    Anyone here think Pickens would not be a superstar under good OC?

    Pickens needs to grow up, he's a rookie, and he doesn't get to dictate how many touches he gets.

    It's concerning because there were questions about his character coming out of college. People can mature, sure.. But it sure seems like receivers are who they are and pretty much never change for the better. If anything, they tend to get worse from a character standpoint as they get more successful on the field.

    Steelers should unload him at the end of season then, because with his talent, he is going to be upset doing this every year behind Diontae Dropson

    He is fairly comfortably their most talented receiver and needs to be more involved in the offence, but he can’t act like that.

    There will be games where the opposing defence is going to key on him to take him away and there will be games where the ball just doesn’t go his way for whatever reason. He is going to have to learn to deal with it. If he can’t then he will only be hurting himself. Nobody wants a stroppy malcontent on their team.

    Agree. Can’t have it. He was in front of his hometown fans so likely wanted to put on a show, but act like a professional.

    Either the Falcons covered Pickens like he was a WR1 or he was open a bunch and Pickett missed him.

    Ether way it's not a big deal.. it's just a teachable moment for a rookie.

    Maybe he will, but was is it so important to you that everyone agrees with your opinion? We’ve seen players throughout the NFL act out before. Doesn’t always mean that they’re going to be a constant problem.

    There’s a correlation there that I’m not really wanting to spell out.
