Steelers Disagree with Seymour Fine

Several of the Pittsburgh Steelers had some words to say about the $25,000 fine for the punch that connected flush with Roethlisberger's jaw.  Hines Ward and Randle El told reports that players would be fined more and possible suspended if such a hit occurred on Tom Brady or Peyton Manning. It's true that the National Football League protects the 2 golden buys and the punishment for Richard Seymour would have been much steeper.

Steelers receiver Antwaan Randle El told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that Seymour's punishment would have been stiffer if he had hitTom Brady or Peyton Manning.

"It would have been a little more," Randle El told the Post-Gazette. "Or if one of our guys did it, there would have been more."

Fellow wideout Hines Ward went further. The Post-Gazette reported Thursday that Ward said on his local radio show Tuesday that Seymour would have been suspended if he had struck either Brady or Manning.

Ward would not comment on his radio show comments when asked by the Post-Gazette but told the paper that the NFL isn't "being consistent with all the fines and the calls."

Roethlisberger, asked if the ruling would have been different if his name were different, was frank in his response.

"We all know the answer to that one. Easy," Roethlisberger told the Post-Gazette.

Pouncey the starter

According to reports, Florida first round pick, Maurkice Pouncey has taken all the first round snaps as the center.

Pouncey has been impressive during the preseason. He's anticipated to be the best Steelers center since Dermontti Dawson, a Hall of Fame candidate. With Hartwig's high price tag, the Steelers may be inclined to cut Justin Hartwig.

Cut Hartwig, Pay Woodley

With the outstanding play of rookie center Maurkice Pouncey, the Steelers are likely considering to cut Justin Hartwig.

Hartwig has been an adequate plug but its only a matter of time until Pouncey takes over.

With that being said, why not make Woodley happy and give him a 2 million dollar pay increase this year and release Hartwig. Hartwig is due to make 2 mil this year and that's too muh for a backup center. Release Hartwig and give Woodley the 2 mil.

Florio Confirms His Stupidity, Again

Sporting News reporter Mike Florio confirms his stupidity in his latest article.  Florio provides us a list of 5 players that should be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame compared to 5 players that should not be included in the Hall of Fame.

Florio is so biased against the Steelers it's almost humorous but yet exhausting.  Purely opinionated, most consider Florio and Pro Football Talk the paparazzi of the National Football League (NFL) reporting.

In his list of 5 players that should NOT be in the Hall of Fame include both Dick Lebeau and Lynn Swann.  Out of all the players in the Hall of Fame, Florio picks 2 Steelers in his list of 5.  Big Surprise!

If Florio looks at Lebeau's statistics like he does everyone else, then he'll see that Lebeau clearly deserves his Hall of Fame bid.

Lynn Swann not deserving to be in the Hall of Fame is laughable.  Maybe the most clutch wide receiver in playoff and Super Bowl history.  He compares Swann's stats which are in fact on the low end, to today's players.

Someone needs to tell Florio to wake up.... Swann played in a completely different era and mostly in a run first offense.  How can you possibly compare Swann to a wide receiver of today which is a "pass first" league?

I guess Florio doesn't take in consideration a players playoff appearances & wins as well of Super Bowl rings in his analysis of who should get into the Hall of Fame.

If Florio still has any sport writer credibility left, he lost it all in his latest article:

Pouncey Signs 5-year deal

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed center, 1st round draft pick, Maurkice Pouncey to a 5-year deal. Terms have not been disclosed.

Pouncey, a standout center for the University of Florida is expected to compete for a starting job at either the center or guard positions.

Center is the Steelers worst position along the offensive line and Pouncey is expected to be a huge upgrade over Justin Hartwig.
