That should make those two Steelers-Ravens games a test of loyalties for the Gradkowski family (With Matt Birk's retirement, Gino is competing with former Steelers draft pick, A.Q. Shipley, a Moon native, to start at center for the Ravens).

"Now, it's my turn," Bruce said. "He has a ring already."
I agree...

Well you always like to see a hometown guy succeed. Rooting for Bruce but I only want to see him at the end of games where we have a big lead and in Week-17 when we're resting our starters. No disrespect. He's obviously a good dude but I want to see little him as possible. Ditto Landry.
