Todd Haley laughed off Antonio Brown's sideline tantrum in Baltimore because, well, it would be hypocritical if he didn't.

The Steelers offensive coordinator found himself in Brown's crosshairs after the wide receiver flipped over a Gatorade cooler Sunday in the second quarter of the Steelers' 26-9 win over the Ravens.

Haley approached after Brown took a seat on the bench. Brown got up and walked away. Haley tried to grab the back of Brown's shirt, but Brown twisted away and swatted at Haley's hand.

No hard feelings, Haley said Thursday.

"You just try to understand that guys are passionate and want to contribute and want to make plays, and there are going to be some emotions out there," Haley said. "I've been one of the emotional ones at different times, so I'm understanding of it."

When Haley was offensive coordinator of the Arizona Cardinals, he got into a sideline spat with receiver Anquan Boldin late in the NFC championship game that preceded the Super Bowl matchup against the Steelers.
