Antonio Brown frustrated with Michael Vick’s play in place of Ben Roethlisberger

Antoni Brown is counting the days until Ben Roethlisberger returns as Pittsburgh's starting quarterback -- the "frustrated" All-Pro receiver just didn't know what he had until it was gone.

Brown didn't strike the same kind of chemistry with Michael Vick during Sunday's 23-20 overtime loss to the Baltimore Ravens (1-3). The Week 4 game ended Brown's 35-game streak of five receptions with at least 50 yards which understandable irritated the three-time Pro-Bowler.

"Total frustration," Brown told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, via SB Nation. "I appreciate the quarterback (Roethlisberger) now that's he's not out there. It is really different."

Vick said he can't do what Roethlisberger does and just wants to do his best to help the team win, per SB Nation.

The Steelers (2-2) have some good news for Week 5 against the San Diego Chargers (2-2) as receiver Martavis Bryant returns -- after a four-game suspension for violating the NFL Substance Abuse Policy -- and will help take the pressure off of Brown.
