Brown explains the animated Tom Brady

Tom Brady doesn't show his emotion all the time, but when he does he does. Clearly a competitive guy, Brady was livid at head referee Ed Hochuli who granted the 49ers a time out despite Brady hiking the ball.

Troy Brown has seen a lot of Brady but even he hadn't seen Brady more emotional than he was after that.

"It was the most emotional," Brown said. "His teams was down at that point in time. He was getting his team in the groove, and they were feeling it, and then all of a sudden now you get a stop in the play like that and he's angry about it because he's feeling he's in the rhythm."

"You saw that look in Brady's eye before the game started. The 49ers took that away, but he still had that look in his eye the second half."

Brown apologizes for 'distraction' caused by Facebook Live video

Brown apologizes for 'distraction' caused by Facebook Live video

Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown posted an apology on social media Tuesday night for his Facebook Live video that has caused a stir over the last few days.

"I let my emotions and genuine excitement get the best of me, and I wanted to share that moment with our fans," said Brown in a statement on his Twitter. ""It was wrong of me to do, against team and NFL policy, and I have apologized to Coach Tomlin and my teammates for my actions.

"I'm sorry to them for letting it become a distraction and something that they've had to answer questions about while we're preparing for a big game on Sunday."

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday that he has “absolutely no worries on the video's effect" on Sunday's game against the Patriots, but it was "selfish and inconsiderate" of his star wide receiver.

Brown could still be fined for violating the league's social-media policy. The policy states that players, coaches and football operations personnel are banned from using social media on game days 90 minutes before kickoff, during games, and before "traditional media interviews."
