PITTSBURGH — The Steelers were no doubt frustrated by their high-scoring loss Sunday to the Kansas City Chiefs.

They lost to first-year quarterback Patrick Mahomes who, in just his third career start, picked through the defense like a veteran with years of NFL experience.

Steelers kicker Chris Boswell, who just signed a contract extension in the off-season, missed a field goal (his second this season) and extra point.

The Steelers were playing catch-up on the score board all afternoon.

Wide receiver Antonio Brown showed his frustrations on the sideline, having a heated chat with offensive coaches. He also left the locker room early without talking to reporters.

Later, he took his frustration to social media - using the word "trade."


Former Steelers PR staffer Ryan Scarpino tweeted Sunday afternoon that Brown was lucky to have Ben Roethlisberger as his quarterback – arguing he wouldn’t have the same receiving numbers if he played for another team.

Brown responded, “Trade me let’s find out.”

In a season where the Steelers are already missing their starting running back over a contract dispute, any more drama involving a star player is not what they need, especially as they head into week 3 still looking for their first win.
