Steelers WR Antonio Brown Ranked No. 23 On NFL Network’s Top 100 Players Of 2014


A third Pittsburgh Steelers player has made the 2014 NFL Network Top 100 Players of 2014 and it’s wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Brown, who is ranked 23rd overall on the annual list that is supposedly voted on by his peers, caught 110 passes for 1,499 yards and eight touchdowns in 2013.

Not only did Brown break the Steelers single-season receiving yardage mark of 1,398 set by Yancey Thigpen in 1997 last season, he also became the first player in NFL history to finish a regular season with at least five catches and 50 receiving yards in every game.

Brown, who was voted the Steelers team MVP in 2013, was also named to his second Pro Bowl last season for his outstanding play.

About Dave Bryan

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.

    I’m still surprised that in the league’s history, no one had ever gone 5/50 in every game. That’s a huge record he can tell his grandkids.

  • chris ward

    Well deserved, AB had an outstanding year in 13′, was consistent every week.

  • pat

    Dont understand how Andre Johnson is ranked higher though

  • Madi

    I can’t wait until Ben Roethlisberger is as good as Andrew Luck.
    Someday, Ben. Someday you will be that good…

  • rn

    I’m irrationally upset with how he didn’t get one of the cool videos with other players gushing over him.

  • stellarsfan

    You guys remember when we drafted Antonio and reporters joked about ANtonio replacing SANtonio? because it was honestly outlandish at the time to compare a 6th round rookie to a Superbowl MVP receiver in his prime. Its amazing to see how AB has completely turned the tables.

    We flirted with Wallace and it was fun, but we made the right choice marrying AB.

  • Jason White

    Well deserved. The amount of people on Twitter who were calling him overrated was crazy and most of them were mad cause he was listed higher than Dez Bryant.

  • Lizard72

    No crap! Haters! They have him as overrated and Dez Bryant as underrated?

  • Jason White

    Exactly! It reminds me of the guy on YouTube I had to put in his place because he said Tony Romo is a better quarterback than Tom Brady.

  • Jason

    Johnson had 109 catches for over 1,400 yds on a crappy team with no Qb and regardless of what they say about it being a season by season ranking they take the entire career into account. For instance we all know if Ray Lewis was rolling his fat a^* out there iin a wheel chair they’d put him in the top 10. Also where will Brady rank after a subpar 2013 season?

  • Dakota Smales

    You guys are true steeler fans and I’m just glad he finally got the dedication he deserves I mean wow 110 rec 1,499 yards 8 touchdowns he was beast.

  • Chad H

    #2 receiver last year and back to back pro bowls I guess I would have him at least in the teens. The whole top 100 is B.S. Not sure how Timmons doesn’t make the list the last 2 years. Talk about underrated player.

  • Chad H

    That’s what drugs does to people. Clouds their judgement.

    no doubt! And he can also brag about the record he has as the only player in history to record a 1000 yards receiving and 1000 yards returning in a season

    I’ll be completely honest and say I didn’t believe in Brown until what he showed us after Mike Wallace left. Up until that point, I always thought of him as a player who would benefit from another playmaker at receiver. I honestly didn’t think he had what it took to hold his own as a #1. I definitely stand corrected on that account. He absolutely earned his 23rd overall rank from last season. Here’s to another season of him in the top 25

  • Steve

    Dez had a Great talk before the Texans game, then he choked!

  • michael young

    Ask Joe Haden what he thinks of AB. Haden is a premier corner and AB gives him fits out there on gameday. He doesn’t get talked about as “elite” more due to his stature than anything. He’s a machine out there. The kid works his tail off as well. It says a lot when your coaches tell you to pull back on your training.

    Until he wins 1 can’t buy it…
