Bart Scott is always good for a quote or two about the Patriots.
On CBS Sports Radio with Damon Amendolara, Scott discussed Steelers coach Mike Tomlin calling the Patriots a-holes in Antonio Brown’s Facebook Live video.
“That speaks to what he thinks about them,” Scott said. “I don’t think that is about anybody, no. He looks at the Patriots like pretty much the rest of the league looks at them like Duke. You kind of hate Duke.
“Everybody hates Duke because they think they are some arrogant you-know-what’s and they have this bravado. They are like the kids in the playground that you are cracking jokes [about]. … That is how they come off to the majority of the league as smug, arrogant and they can have a sense of quiet, but they try to be humble and you know they are not.”
Scott doesn’t think Tomlin would make that comment about any team and that it was specific to the Patriots....
Maybe it wasn’t as big of a deal as some were making it.
On Monday, following Antonio Brown’s Facebook Live video from inside the Steelers locker room being posted the night before, Julian Edelman was asked about it on Ordway, Merloni & Fauria.
“Hey, people have different rules,” he said. “That’s how that team is run. I personally don’t think that would be something that would happen in our locker room, but hey whatever. Some people like red and some people like blue. Some people like tulips and some people like roses, whatever.”
Some took issue with the “how that team is run” line and on a conference call with the Pittsburgh media on Wednesday clarified his thoughts on the Steelers organization.
“Yeah, I mean I...
FOXBORO — On Tuesday night Antonio Brown issued an apology via Twitter for his Facebook Live video, and on Wednesday he spoke to the media for the first time.
“I absolutely regret the Facebook Live situation,” Brown told reporters in Pittsburgh. “It’s a total distraction to the organization. A total distraction to my teammates. Obviously disrespect to my coach. I’ve got utmost respect to my coach so I totally regret that.”
The Steelers receiver was asked why he did it.
“I’m human. I make mistakes. But as a man I own up to those mistakes. I was excited in the moment and wanted to give the fans the experience after the game,” Brown said.
It’s been reported Brown has a contract with Facebook, but said, “it’s top secret.”
There’s a chance Brown...
FOXBORO — Wide receivers Malcolm Mitchell and Chris Hogan were part of a seven-player group that were listed as limited in Wednesday’s practice for the Patriots. Hogan is dealing with a thigh injury he sustained in Saturday’s divisional playoff win over the Texans, while Mitchell has been sidelined as of late with a knee issue.

FOXBORO — There was something noticeably different from Tom Brady at his Wednesday press conference.
He was short and serious. Questions that would typically get long, drawn out answers only got one or two line responses. Because this was so out of the norm for him, many wondered if there was something wrong with him from a health perspective.
“You sound a bit raspy – are you feeling OK?,” a reporter asked.
“I’m good,” Brady replied.
There was nothing to see from the nearly 10-minute press conference. It was simply a case of the quarterback being in playoff football mode and not wanting any distractions. Bill Belichick was more serious than normal in his press conference right before Brady and the quarterback was just following his coach.
While some may think there’s something wrong with Brady, there’s not. It’s playoff football.
