Losing has Antonio Brown of Pittsburgh Steelers fired up

PITTSBURGH -- Antonio Brown is still fired up.

Brown addressed the media for nearly 10 minutes from his Steelers locker Thursday and was on the offensive for most of them.

"You guys don't know me at all," Brown said. "You guys just write what you think will get hits. Everyone in this locker room knows what I stand for, knows what I'm about. I'm committed to this program and this organization -- I'm fully here. I go to work every day, about my business, and I don't take it for granted. My business is winning here. I come here to win. We ain't winning, you damn right I'm pissed off."

Brown admits his "Trade me" tweet to a former Steelers employee was a bad decision that became a distraction, but he doesn't apologize for a sideline flare-up with offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner that Brown said was born out of frustration with the deficit in Sunday's Chiefs game, which Pittsburgh lost 42-37.

He missed Monday's work day for a personal matter that he said he conveyed to coach Mike Tomlin ahead of time. "Obviously (Tomlin) knew where I was at," Brown said.

Tomlin met with Brown Tuesday and levied an undisclosed disciplined Brown on Wednesday.

"I'm not on the sideline begging for the ball or making statements you guys make," Brown said. "I'm pissed off. We're losing. We suck."
