Default Flozell Adams: 'I'm a Steeler'

Flozell Adams: 'I'm a Steeler'

By James Walker
PITTSBURGH -- Offensive tackle Flozell Adams spent the majority of his career with the Dallas Cowboys. But that was the last team he cared to talk about on Wednesday.

"I'm a Steeler," Adams said, dodging any questions in the locker room about Dallas. "So that's how we roll."

[+] EnlargeAdams
Icon SMIFlozell Adams will be returning to Cowboys Stadium, but this time with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
After a dozen years with the Cowboys, Adams will return to the place where it all started. This time Adams will be the starting right tackle for the AFC champion Pittsburgh Steelers, who will play the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XLV at Cowboys Stadium.

It's yet another twist of irony between the Steelers and Cowboys, who are two of the NFL's winningest franchises, combining for 11 Super Bowl championships. Adams never had the chance to win a title with the Cowboys. But he gets his first shot at a ring on the Cowboys' home turf in his first season with the Steelers (14-4).

"It would mean just as much, if not more, for me to win it for Flozell," Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said. "To go back to Dallas and he's never had a chance to go to a Super Bowl. To get to play in one, and it's in Dallas, I want to win one for him as much as I do myself."

Adams, 35, was released by the Cowboys this past offseason. Pittsburgh signed him as a replacement for the injured Willie Colon, who tore his Achilles and was out for the season.

Adams had to switch from left tackle to right tackle with the Steelers but got better as the season went on. His run blocking, in particular, has been solid. Adams helped pave the way for tailback Rashard Mendenhall (1,273 yards, 13 touchdowns) to have a career season.

"It was a challenge," Adams said of the position switch. "I had some trouble adjusting with it and learning the scheme in the beginning. But I just stuck with it."

Less than a year after being released, the sight of Adams potentially holding up the Lombardi Trophy at Cowboys Stadium may not sit well with many Dallas fans. But don't ask Adams to reflect on his days as a Cowboy. He's not interested in talking about his former organization this week.

"It's been a while; I don't remember," Adams said, laughing. "I'm just talking about the Steelers and what we're doing for this Super Bowl right now, that's all."

I'd like to see him shove that trophy right down Jones' throat. If they keep Adams, Aikman may not have gotten sacked so much and they might have been a better team. (Probably not, but it is funny to think about)

There's something about Flozell that I admire. I don't know what it is. I just feel so incredibly comfortable knowing he's on the team for some reason and I loved Ben's comment on saying he wants to win it for Flozell more than himself.

Just very up-lifting comments from our men while G.B talks about meeting Obama at the White House.

Cool Re: Flozell Adams: 'I'm a Steeler'

Would anyone here object to him retiring a Steeler with a Super Bowl win? I think not.

I'm sure he means Romo... Who was protected by Adams at the left tackle position, then he was sacked this eason which caused him to be injured and pretty much screwed the cowboys. Adams actually played with Aikman for like 2 or 3 seasons back in the day... Yeah he's that old.

It would be nice for the BIG Hotel to win it in Dallas. This will be about as close as Jerry Jones will get to another Super Bowl unless he hosts another one in the future or opens his trophy case and blows the dust off that SB XXX Lombardi.

Saw this on my FB wall just now...

"Its Travel day. The Steelers O-Line waits to board the plane to Dallas, wearing Flozell Adams' college jersey."
