2 great quotes:

"This is the best group of guys I have been around," said Wilson. "I am not saying that just because we won the Super Bowl. I don't have to say that. This is the best group of guys I have been around in my lifetime, not just on the football field. These guys like one another, they work together and they compete against one another. It's fun. It's like, if you beat me out, it means you worked harder than me. I am not upset with you, I am upset with myself."


"For me at the point where it was looking like we weren't going to get into the playoffs, I was saying to myself I came here to win that Super Bowl and things just didn't happen right for me," said Wilson. "Then Coach (Bill) Cowher had a meeting with us at the pivotal point. He came in and said I checked all of your backgrounds and I know everything about you. He said I am going to find out who is going to leave it all out there and who is going to throw in the towel. He said I am going to find out.

Great read Tony.

I like Cedrick. Even when people bitched about him saying we should throw the ball more last year, he just wanted to win and thought passing more would help us win. Sure did the trick in the playoffs.

I really did not have a problem with him complaining about not getting the ball in the regular season. My problem was that when he did get a ball thrown his way he normally dropped it. I'm not denying he stepped up in the playoffs, but around the time of his complaining he couldn't hold on to the ball. Hence, making an ass out of himself.

Eitherway, I'll be sold on Cedrick Wilson when he does it for a complete season. Until then I still have my doubts about him lining up opposite of Hines Ward. I need more than a playoff showing to be convinced.

:tt: He'll do fine this season. He just needed time to get the "mojo" going. He finally feels like a real Steeler, not some part-time FA hired as a fill-in.

I am fairly confident that he will increase catches and yards. He will take some of the extra coverage off of Hines.....and then comes Santonio....wow! What a triple threat by mid to late season.

It's gonna be an exciting year! :whatnow:

I agree with you; I'm not sold on him yet.
