Combination of two things IMO....
Getting involved with the Steelers organization and seeing how things are handled here. I believe his troubles occured before he was able to get involved with the organization.
Hines Ward pulling him aside and having a few talks with him and making it very clear to him what is expected of him.
Man, I remember some fans wanted to give the kid the boot before he even entered Pittsburgh city limits.
