Maybe after all these years he finally "Gets it." I hate thinking of the talent he wasted.

It's nice to see Bam turning things around in his life. I used to love watching him run for the Steelers, and at the time he was released, I remember being dissapointed, but I knew the Steeler organization did the right thing.

Good luck Bam!!

Good article...hardly surprising that after he got busted with POUNDS of dope in his trunk, the Ravens were still interested...I'm just surprised the Raiders didn't give him a call.

loved watching him play, a talent that was definately wasted that could have been a really good RB in the NFL.

Sad story... I wish he could have played in Pittsburgh longer. It's good to hear his life is back on the right track.

All rookies should be required to read and sign that article.

How many pounds were in his trunk? 40 or 50 or more?

Oh my gosh, I remember watching him plow through defenses in the 1995 season and his game-winning 1 yard touchdown to hoist Pittsburgh past Indianapolis in the AFC title game!

I read about Morris and I'm glad to see that he has got himself back on track. Everyday I watch that Super Bowl XXX highlight, it reminds me of how much of an integral player he was in the Bill Cowher regime: FAST, HARD, AND PHYSICAL. Heck, he even landed some hard shots on Jerry Jones' boys!

Let's hope he has slugged those drug demons out of his life FOR GOOD :boxing: !!!!!

FAST...HARD...PHYSICAL...PITTSBURGH STEELERS! GREATEST TEAM IN THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE AND THE AFC'S ONLY FIVE-TIME SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS!!!!! ALL OTHERS ARE SECOND!!!!!

I was never a big fan of his, he played well in a system that catered to him though

Good to see he did his time and he's trying to get his life back on track. More power to him and best of luck.

Think about this... If Bam Morris had kept his head on straight would Jerome have ended up wearing Black and Gold?

probably not, we made the trade i thought because we needed a big back because we released Morris didnt we ?

Still holds the Steelers single season rushing record at 1,690 yards. That cat could have been an absoute stud, but he was a complete whack-job. Remember he attempted a comeback for the Bengals, and quit after a few days...said his heart just wasn't in it.

Last I heard, as of 2003, Foster was the running back coach for the Rhein Fire. He got busted with cocaine while he was a steeler and that pretty much turned the Rooney's off. The Steelers basically said "bye-bye" and picked up The Bus.

Those who wanted Ricky Williams, read above.

I remember reading this in the sporting news pertaining to the Barry Foster incident............

"He's not here because of the best interests of the Steelers," Cowher replied, that wonderful chin sticking out toward me.

I tried again, rephrasing my question. I pointed out how the Cowboys still welcomed disgraced Michael Irvin into their training facility.

The chin seemed to grow in size. I felt a pressure, accentuated by the glare from his dark eyes. This, I realized, was not going very well.

"Because the best interests of the Steelers," he repeated.

LOL, you gotta love it.

I thought I read that Foster was still a millionaire, and that he made some very wise investments?????

That's one thing I love about the Steelers and the Rooneys. They don't care who you are. If you mess with drugs you're gone from the team. Period. I admire that about them.

Yep, the Rooneys don't put up with any crap. And that's why TO will never be a Steeler! Yay! :bouncy:

Great article about Bam. He's learned from his past mistakes, and I wish him the best. :smile:

All these last few posts are FILLED with pearls of wisdom dripping from the mouths of older Steelers fans for the younger fans to collect.

Some teams do ANYTHING to WIN, sign any player, cross any line, lower the bar as low as it needs to go. The Steelers will never be that kind of a team, and, last time I checked, they have just as many Super Bowl rings as the other teams who checked their integrity and honor at the door.

I remember Bam Morris as being the only Steeler in the SB that didn't look like he had butterflies. He ran pretty easily against the Cowboys.
