The All-Pro wide receiver also happened to catch coach Mike Tomlin indelicately describing the New England Patriots, the Steelers’ opponent in the AFC Championship game. Tomlin’s word choice – an expletive – didn’t bother his players as much as Brown’s decision to throw back the curtain on what is usually a private moment. “Personally I’d like some of that stuff sacred,” long snapper Greg Warren said Monday....
