To hear the interview, go to the Ordway, Merloni & Fauria audio on demand page. Following taking down the Chiefs on Sunday night, Antonio Brown posted a long Facebook Live video from the locker room (it has since been deleted). The video captures head coach Mike Tomlin calling the Patriots a-holes when saying they will have more time to prepare for the game. Edelman said he caught clips of the video. "Hey, people have different rules," he said. "That's how that team is run. I personally don't think that would be something that would happen in our locker room, but hey whatever. Some people like red and some people like blue. Some people like tulips and some people like roses, whatever." Added Edelman: "Hey man, I wouldn't do that so I personally -- I wouldn't do that. Let's just say that and I'd be more worried about just trying to celebrate with my teammates and keeping it internal." The receiver understands why Tomlin would say what he said given the teams will be meeting in a huge game Sunday to decide who goes to the Super Bowl. "Hey, we're one of their competitors," Edelman said. "We're about to be stacked up against each other. I mean when you were a kid and you were playing against another kid he wasn't your friend, so like I said it is what it is. I am not going to be worried about what they are saying, I am going to be worried about what they are doing. I am going to be worried about my week of prep and what I have to do to out and contribute for this team." As for the game itself, the Steelers have won nine straight games. Many believe their defense is weak, but the fact of the matter is they have allowed 16.5 points per game over the nine-game win streak. "Their defense is good," Edelman said. "Let's call a spade a spade here. They have a lot of speed, athleticism, they are young. Coach Tomlin is going to have them with their eyes pinned back trying to come out -- they swarm, they play a lot of different stuff. They have some veterans in key positions that know football, been in the situations, been in this atmosphere. They've won on the road in the playoffs so they have confidence. Any time you have stuff like that man, it's going to be a battle." TO LISTEN TO THE ENTIRE JULIAN EDELMAN INTERVIEW, CLICK HERE
