It was a pretty good interview. He said he thought the stomping of the TT was very disrespectful, but that he stood behind his team mates. He mentioned that it was something he felt Jeff Fisher was going to address in private. He sounded to me as though he still has a LOT of respect and admiration for the Steelers, and still hangs out with some of the players in the off season. He was drafted by them, and gave credit to the Steelers organization for teaching him a lot of the things he knows and applies to his game now. He seemed to be a very sincere and nice guy.

I truly think he hated what his team mates did to the Terrible Towel, but felt an obligation to be there for them...to have their back, so to speak. But I did not get the impression that he condoned, for one minute, what they did.
