Emmanuel Sanders Talks About Loss To Broncos

*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***

PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) — Steelers’ Wide Receiver Emmanuel Sanders joined the Fan Morning Show to talk about the loss to the Broncos and the end of the season in general.

Sanders said that players and fans have to give credit to Tim Tebow and how well he played. He was shocked when the game ended so abruptly while he was on the sidelines — and was disappointed that the offense didn’t get a chance to make it on the field in overtime.

When asked to describe his season, Sanders likened it to a roller coaster with “a lot of ups and downs.” But, he said he is looking forward to working on his game in the off-season and coming back healthy for next season.

Polamalu wins appeal on $10,000 fine for phone call

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu will not have to pay for his expensive phone call.
Polamalu broke NFL rules by using a phone during a game this season, drawing a $ 10,000 fine for his action. League rules prohibit the use of cell phones on the bench from 90 minutes prior to kickoff to the conclusion of the game.
What was so urgent that he needed to borrow the team trainer's cell phone? Well, Polamalu was calling his wife, Theodora, to let her know that he was OK after taking a knee to the head while stopping Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew during the fourth quarter of a game in October.

At the time of the infraction, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin ripped the league for lacking common sense.
"He has had a history of concussion-like symptoms in the past," Tomlin told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette at the time. "(She) was conc...

The previous time Denver and New England met in the playoffs, Champ Bailey returned an interception 100 yards, sparking a big Broncos win and handing the Patriots' Tom Brady his first postseason loss after 10 wins and three titles.
