Antonio Brown is still kind of young, so maybe Big Ben was taking aim at his star wide receiver?

A somber and frustrated Roethlisberger backed over his wide receivers more than once, after the Pittsburgh Steelers were throttled by the New England Patriots in a 36-17 loss.
“It just at times almost felt like it was almost too big for some of the young guys."
Ben could have been talking about young receivers Sammie Coates , Eli Rogers and Cobi Hamilton, each of whom struggled to hold on to balls, or made mistakes elsewhere.

He could have also been firing a shot at Antonio Brown, who except for a few flashes, was held to seven catches and 77 yards after his Facebook Live fiasco.
“Hopefully this is a learning game for guys to understand that this isn’t promised to anybody. Tomorrow’s not promised to any of us and just to make the playoffs isn’t enough to get to this championship game. A lot of guys have been in this league for a long time and haven’t been to any of these or have been to very few, so I hope that they understand the importance and relish the opportunity if it comes again.”
Asked if he thinks the younger players understood that, Roethlisberger was still uncertain.
