I have always thought the Clowns to be a bit feminine, now I have proof, as it seems we've just found they're P***y.

I also apologize to Steelers fans and would like to thank them for their support during the past few days and throughout my career.

My block had no impact on the outcome of last week's game. I have never engaged in conduct that has resulted in a penalty to obtain a competitive advantage while the game was in progress.

Part of my job as a Steelers player is to ensure that our football operations are conducted in compliance of the league rules and all accepted interpretations of them. My interpretation of a rule was incorrect.

With today's resolution, I will not be offering any further comments on this matter. We are moving on with our preparations for Sunday's game.
That was good! I was laughing at that one.

A turnover machine.

Hines is going to be one of those players who's jersey you'll keep seeing for the next 4 decades.

His career has run perfectly with the Steelers. Now that he's getting older, he remains a not only a great possession guy, but an excellent mentor to the young 'uns.

True

When I heard about the fine, two things came into my head

Number One: Stupid Browns

Number Two: At least its payback for Winslow's infamous cheap shot

Number Three: They blame Hines more than Winslow, geez

I lied, that's three things, oh well

Both Troy Edwards, and Plaxico Burress refused to learn from Ward. Foolish decision. Holmes appears to be following the footsteps of Randle El. Learning everything he can from the guy. That block was an early indication. Soak it up Holmesie boy, it's a smart move. You'll reap the rewards....

5,000 bucks is nothing to Ward... $5k well spent.

Besides, I bet Rooney flips the bill for him anyway.
