Bengals cornerback Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones seems to believe that Antonio Brown took a few classes at the local school of arts.
How else can you explain Jones accusing Brown of egregiously flopping on the vicious play that got linebacker Vontaze Burfict flagged after hitting the All-Pro in the head with his shoulder.
Brown appeared to get knocked out — but after the game, Pacman said that Brown “deserves an Academy Award for that performance.”
Jones also took issue with the call on Burfict, saying of Brown — who the Steelers said after the game was in the league’s concussion protocol — “Man, that (expletive) was (expletive) acting. He flopped. He needs a (expletive) Academy Award for that performance.”
I asked Jones if he blamed himself for drawing the pivotal penalty.
“Look,” he said, “every play I had in between the lines was a good play.”
The call can be disputed for the next six months — but Burfict’s inability to pull up — or Jones’ refusal to control his emotions — ultimately did the Bengals in.
