By now, everybody knows what Antonio Brown did on the field in Week 17. It was nothing new from the wide receiver. He has a long list of temper tantrums and this was just another notch in his belt. Brown quit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in style as he walked off the field in the middle of the game.

Many fans noticed this, and it reminded them of another ‘Diva’ of the NFL. There was something similar in Brown’s behavior last night. It had shades of none other than the legendary Terrell Owens himself. T.O. was known to be somewhat of a prima donna back in his day. When a few fans pointed out the similarities, Owens wanted nothing to do with Antonio Brown.

It was just another game in the NFL. The Bucs expected it to be a walk in the park, but the Jets were on their A-game. They were giving Tampa a run for their money. The Jets had the upper hand for most of the game. 

 

In the third quarter, Antonio Brown decided he had enough and made his exit. The wide receiver took off his jersey and shoulder pads. Brown stripped his shirt along with his gloves and tossed it in the crowd. With both teams still on the field, Brown marched down the Jets’ end zone, threw up a peace-out sign, and walked off. 

Nobody really knows the reason for his departure. Some say he did this because of the money, some say it’s because of playtime, and some say he did it because he is Antonio Brown. Whatever the reason might be, there was something familiar about the incident.

Respectfully and Disrespectfully, there’s no comparison.” He adds, “Clearly you’ve been drinking the kool-aid.”
