Default No Big Distractions this year

I was just thinking about how 2 years ago, it was all about Ben and his motorcycle accident. The Steelers were fresh off SuperBowl XL, Bettis had retired and then Ben had his infamous motorcycle accident and appendectomy.

Then last year, Cowher retired and all the buzz was about Tomlin, could he lead a team like the Steelers, how was he going handle to the "Faneca situation", and the team went to training camp with a brand new coach and staff.

This year, it's business as usual in Pittsburgh. The only distraction is how great our two top draft picks are predicted to be.

Ahhhhhhhh..........life is good again.

Is that why we have to spend so much time analyzing draft picks and the condition of the lines! No big distractions to talk about!

You're right though, life is good!
