Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin calls the New England Patriots a-holes since the Pats get an extra day of preparation.

Preparation, we aren’t talking about a game we talking about preparation. Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin wasn’t happy that the New England Patriots got an extra day of preparation and called them a-holes in a Facebook Live video.

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin wasn’t happy that the New England Patriots got an extra day of preparation and called them “a–holes” in a Facebook Live video.

After the Steelers beat the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Divisional Game, Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown took fans inside the locker room in a 17 minute Facebook Live video. Tomlin is caught calling the Patriots a–holes in the video.

The Patriots had advanced to the AFC championship game the day before and Tomlin didn’t like that they had an extra day to prepare for the championship game.

“When you get to this point in the journey, man, not a lot needs to be said. Let’s say very little moving forward,” he said in the video. “Let’s start our preparations. We spotted them a–holes a day-and-a-half. They played yesterday. Our game got moved to the night. We’re gonna touchdown (in Pittsburgh) at 4 o’clock in the f—ing morning. So be it. We’ll be ready for their a—-.”

The coach also told the team to keep a low profile. The video had over 900,000 views after it aired Monday morning, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN. The Browns have removed the video from their Facebook page.

The Steelers will be making their 16th appearance in the AFC championship game, the most of any team in NFL history. The Patriots will be playing in their sixth straight AFC championship game. The Patriots beat the Steelers when they met earlier this season.

The AFC championship game is Sunday night.
