How cool is that? He definitely deserves it 1000 times over..........He has done so much in his career and has added a touch of class to the NFL that there is no way in hell the SI jinx will even think about getting near him.....NO FRIGGIN WAY!!!!

jerome on s.i. is definitely a well deserved honor. i can see him having a big game this week actually.

actually the s.i. jinx usually hurts the whole team not just the player, when troy got on the cover we went on a three game losing streak

I think I'm gonna start collecting all the SI's with Steelers on the covers.. If I start now, by the time I'm in my early 40's (my football prime :P) I'll have a pretty sweet collection.

They didn't seem to jinx the teams of the 70's. Besides, this "jinxing" stuff is childish. Do people really think taking a picture of someone and putting them on a cover of a magazine is going to determine the outcome of a game? Come on. :dang:

if im not mistaken, the last Steeler player was Polamalu, on November 9th... Correct me if wrong. They playe dCleveland that Sunday night, and won 34-21. He had 5 tackles.

when you think about it, it will only be an excuse for our loss. if we win, we say we break it...whatevers gonna happen will happen, but i tend to think otherwise....:joker:

The Polomalu cover wasn't a jinx to their playoff hopes like people thought it would be.....remember?

I have SI with Steelers cover dating back to the early 70`s. And I have a 71 Quarterbacks magazine with Terry Bradshaw on the cover.

My point here is , in the 70`s we dominated the cover, I have atleast 20. And we still won!

SI can jinx all they want, They cannot penetrate STEEL

THERE IS NO FRINKY JINKYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LET IT GO!!!!!!! Heinz was on the cover last year and look what he's done now.. Troy was on the cover and look where were at now.. 3 losses were a combination of maddox,injuries and poor playing period.. You can't blame a jinx on that and for one.. THERE"S NO SUCH THING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When I saw the cover with Jerome I yelled and went into panic mode. After awhile I calmed down and realized it didn't hurt Troy and it won't hurt Jerome.
