    Actually 44 days until Steeler football. Generally Pre-season doesn't excite me but due to our QB situation I'll be watching those 3 games very closely.

    Happy July people!! Pittsburgh sport lovers must be thrilled that soon the Steelers will be the talk of town. Sure they figured out the Pirates are on yet another "suck" mission.

    Can't remember the last time I was looking so forward to pre-season games. A lot at stake at the QB position. I'm not sold on Trub winning the job. I'm pretty sure Pickett will be in a watch and learn mode for early part of season.

    The sweet thing was I saw this play live in Cincinnati in 1995.

    Nobody was tougher than former Marine and 14 years on the Steeler defensive line than Ernie Stautner. Andy Russell said in his rookie year he went back into defensive huddle after a play and saw Stautner holding his one hand in the other. Looking down Russell saw a bone sticking out of Stautner's thumb after he suffered a compound fraction on the play. Ernie simply said "What's the play?" and continued the series. After going back to the sideline Russell surely thought then that Stautner would be rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery but Stautner only grunted "give me some tape" and wrapped his own hand a finished the game. I remember seeing him when he was in his mid 60's as the Cowboys D-line coach and he looked he could still kick everyone's ass.

    To quote a talking head, "come on man". Hate to rush life but the QB situation really has me excited. Tomlin and company will be up late watching film.

    LC (Hollywood Bags) was a very underappreciated member of those dynasty years.

    Fran had an abysmal game against the Steel Curtain in Superbowl IX. 11 for 26 passing, 102 yards and 3 picks for a dismal 14.1 rating. He was also sacked 6 times and tackled for a safety by Dwight White. He probably still has nightmares about that game.

    And 3 passes batted away by Greenwood

    In one of the later rounds of the next draft Minnesota couldn’t make their pick in time.

    The commissioner said “Minnesota Passes”

    Someone from the audience yelled “and Greenwood bats it down”
