Default Steelers concede title belt to Packers' QB Rodgers

Steelers concede title belt to Packers' QB Rodgers
http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt...nt_720178.html
By Mark Kaboly
PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Friday, January 28, 2011

Some defenders around the NFL haven't been particularly thrilled with quarterback Aaron Rodgers' celebration after touchdowns: a pronounced strapping of an invisible championship belt around his waist.

The Steelers aren't part of that group. In fact, they appreciate the Green Bay standout's gyration, which mimics that of former Philadelphia receiver Freddie Mitchell.

"I like seeing that," cornerback Ike Taylor said. "I like all that. He does that with some umph in it, and that's what I like. I might take it from (him) next year."

Cornerback William Gay also is a fan.

"That's exciting for the game," he said. "That puts excitement on TV. We are in the entertainment business. That's no disrespect to us. That is just something he does, and if you make a play, you can do what you want to do."

Taylor and Gay have their own celebrations. Taylor is known for his "Face Me Ike" action of an open hand gyrating across his face, while Gay imitated rapper Lil Jon's "Yeaaah!" scream during the Steelers' Super Bowl XLIII victory parade.

"I kind of like (Rodgers') celebration," linebacker James Farrior said. "We always say when we go against guys like that do stuff like that, don't let them score."

The Steelers had an up-close view of Rodgers' title belt last season. During the Steelers' 37-36 victory, Rodgers did the celebration after rushing for a touchdown.

"Yeah," Taylor said, "but who won the game?"

The Steelers had a dress rehearsal Thursday ... sort of. Members of the offense and defense shot promos in their uniforms that will air during the Super Bowl. The players involved were Ben Roethlisberger, Hines Ward, James Harrison, LaMarr Woodley and Troy Polamalu, among others.

Safety Will Allen (knee), cornerback Bryant McFadden (abdomen), Polamalu (Achilles), center Maurkice Pouncey (ankle), receiver Emmanuel Sanders (foot) and tackle Jonathan Scott (ribs) didn't practice. Defensive end Aaron Smith (triceps) was limited.

steelers' super bowl takes

Receiver Hines Ward, on Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger:

"I thought when you guys judge quarterbacks, it is all about wins and losses and Super Bowls. He is 10-2 in the playoffs. I don't know why he isn't considered up there with some of the great guys."

Running back Rashard Mendenhall, on missing most of the last Super Bowl season because of an injury:

"It's tough when you're out there, and you're not competing and things like that, but it was a learning experience, as well, watching these men work and being a part of that experience. I wouldn't trade it. It's a lot different being on the other side of it, being counted on to be there and produce. Some of the guys who aren't part of it, I feel for. But, at the same time, you can grow and learn from it, and we're all in it together."

Mendenhall, when asked about taking his game to another level in the AFC Championship Game:

"Maybe. Maybe not. I use every chance, every opportunity, every game to continue to grow. I'm going to continue to do that as long as I'm playing."

Outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley, on recording at least one sack in his first six postseason games:

"If my streak stops, as long as we win, that's what it's about at the end of the day. If I don't get a sack, but if I'm going in there putting pressure on the quarterback, I'll take that over a sack any day."

Receiver Mike Wallace, on team ownership offering players a chance to produce:

"They give guys opportunities. Some guys might have a down year, and other teams might cut them. Here, they give you an opportunity to bounce back. You have so many players who have been here so long, got drafted here and are still here. They really take care of their players."

As the old cliche goes:

To be the man, you've got to beat the man!

So Mr. Rodgers thinks he's the man. Defense needs to go BEAT the man! And at the end of the game I'd love to see Woodley, Harrison, Keisel, and the other 11 men do that strip him of his title!

Rodgers still needs to beat THIS guy first, though.

It's funny because even if Rodgers wins the Super Bowl he's still not "the man". Ben is still better. As is Manning, Brady and Brees. Not to take anything away from Rodgers, he's playing fantastic right now, but it's ridiculous the way the media is hanging all over him.
