Default Willie Gay making some NOISE- Brings the boom on Frank the Tank

There was just SOMETHING about Willie Gay ever since his rookie season 2 years ago. He was a beast in camp that year, and TORE IT UP during the pre-season. Not only is he a fast learner, but he plays with a reckless abansdon. The man is not afraid to get his feet wet. He said he is up to 200 pounds, 15 pounds heavier than last year. Still, he'll lose some weight in camp, but he'll keep the important weight. Bill Gay will be special for us!

With that said, all you Frank "The Tank" fans... he was just welcomed to Latrobe football, compliments of William Gay.

Tank buster

Rookie running back Frank "The Tank" Summers, a fifth-round pick from UNLV, was knocked off his feet and fumbled after being hit by 190-pound cornerback William Gay in the afternoon practice.

Gay's hit on Summers, who weighs 240 pounds, did not sit well with running back Carey Davis, who yelled at Gay. Safety Ryan Clark then came over and "stirred the pot," he said, verbally jousting with Davis.

"When you carry a nickname like 'The Tank' guys are going to try you," coach Mike Tomlin said. "They want him to prove that nickname is earned."

Asked if he likes it when the players are physical, Tomlin said, "I'd rather say 'Whoa,' than 'sic-em.'"

I've always liked willie gay ever since i saw him in preseason as a rookie.

the one thing i thought he needed to improve on was being more physical.

his off-season weight gain seems like he wanted to emphasize being physical more, and this hit on frank "the tank" is making me very happy...look for good things out of willie gay this year

Now THAT's how you humble a rookie. I think that was a good experience for the both of them, even Frank. Gay is building more confidence if he hasnt already, and Frank learns this isnt college football anymore, and he sure as hell aint invincible. Grounded players make the best Steelers.

I was just listening to Stan & Guy on ESPN and whoever they were interviewing (I missed it) said that "It was Keyaron Fox who put the hit on Summers, the papers were reporting it wrong."

Whoever put the hit on Summers, it's good. We need to know now if he can handle the short yardage and goal line situations.

People have compared him to Bettis, and The Bus rarely fumbled.

Ahhhhh, that might make more sense as Fox brings a bit more mass than Gay. Still nice to hear about solid camp contact and no injuries from it.

Cool. Nice hit from Gay or Fox.... Why did davis yell at Gay?? was it a blind hit. a little cheap shot.. why complain??

I think Summers got up right?

Oh, Sweed and Summers and Mendy are no good. they dropped the ball.

eeeesh...
