If Steelers’ receiver Antonio Brown wants the world to believe he’s truly sincere about wanting to win a championship, his actions need to start reflecting that. Up to this point in his career, unfortunately, Brown’s actions appear to be those of just another selfish wide-receiver.

If there was one MVP for the Steelers’ defense after its embarrassing performance in a 42-37 loss to the Chiefs at Heinz Field on Sunday, it was receiver Antonio Brown.
