"We just spotted these assholes a day and a half."
Following the Pittsburgh Steelers' dramatic win over the Kansas City Chiefs last night, Antonio Brown did what all of the greats do when celebrating a trip to the AFC Championship- post a Facebook Live video.
The lengthy, 17-minute video was viewed by more than 900,000 people shortly after it aired live on Facebook, and it included audio of Mike Tomlin referring to the New England Patriots as "assholes" although we're sure that's not the worst thing that someone has said about Brady, Belichick and the Pats.
As heard in the video, Tomlin said;
"When you get to this point in the journey, man, not a lot needs to be said. Let's say very little moving forward. Let's start our preparations. We just spotted these assholes a day and a half. They played yesterday. Our game got moved to tonight. We're going to touch down at 4 o'clock in the f*cking morning. So be it," Tomlin said in the video. "We'll be ready for their ass. But you ain't got to tell them we're coming.
"Keep a low profile, and let's get ready to ball like this up again here in a few days and be right back at it. That's our story."
Ironically, after Tomlin's brief pep talk in which he stressed the need to "keep a low profile," others in the Steelers locker room were preaching "keep cool on social media" and "keep your mouth shut" all while AB was smiling for the camera.
"Keep cool on social media. This is about us, nobody else, man," one said.
"It's a lion's den we're going into this week," said another player of the Patriots' home field, Gillette Stadium. "Keep your mouth shut, and let's play Steeler football."
It should make for an interesting week leading up to Sunday night's AFC Championship in Foxborough.
