We watched this exact scenario unfold with Hall of Fame receiver Terrell Owens in San Francisco 15 years ago. Fair or not, Brown will take a significant chunk of that blame, and in Pittsburgh, no amount of Twitter ratios or #Boomin hashtags will tilt that perception. It is instead Owens doing sit-ups in the driveway after being deactivated by the Eagles, and the press conference with agent Drew Rosenhaus, repeating that two-word response in every direction: "Next question." If Brown pulls another stunt like that, then we will be having the same debates we did around Owens long after his playing days were over: Selfish talent or consummate teammate?
