Maurkice Pouncey said he is "most definitely" going to play. He got rid of the hard cast Monday and is now wearing a walking boot. When asked about the percentages, he then said "75-25" that he would play

Mike Tomlin was asked about his thoughts of playing in the Cowboys' stadium, and he said something that must send shivers down the spine of everyone in Dallas. "It's our stadium this week," Tomlin said. "We thank Mr. Jones for lending it to us."

James Harrison was asked if he was bitter about the fines this season. "They took $100,000 out of my pocket. You expect me not to be bitter?" Harrison also apparently joked that the league should put pillows down on the field

Ben Roethlisberger, who has handled himself well over the last two days, said he had a recent sit-down with four-time Steelers Super Bowl champion Terry Bradshaw, who was very critical of Roethlisberger's off-the-field actions. Roethlisberger thinks the two are all good now but added, "I think Terry spoke too soon" without knowing all of the facts

The NFL Network crew caught up with Terry Bradshaw, who said it was important for him and Ben Roethlisberger to have a good relationship

"I think Terry spoke too soon" without knowing all of the facts

If that's the case, then Terry should apologize now that he has all the facts.

To be honest, I'd rather have Legursky than a gimpy Pouncey out there. Pouncey's mobility is his strength. Without it, he is average and not as strong as a healthy Legursky.

This can be said for 99% of the media then.

Ben Roethlisberger has an easy Media Day

Posted by Michael David Smith on February 1, 2011


Ben Roethlisberger was asked at Super Bowl Media Day whether he felt any anxiety about potentially facing hostile questions about his personal life and the sexual assault accusations that led to a four-game suspension at the start of the season.

I dont know about anxiety, Roethlisberger said. I tried to be prepared.

As it turned out, Roethlisberger didnt need to be prepared for much other than the usual Media Day questions: So far he has faced a mostly friendly press corps, and hes had an easy time of it: Weve seen Roethlisberger joke around, laugh, and talk about how The T Ocho Show is some of his favorite television.

From all appearances, Roethlisberger is poised to make it through Media Day and through the whole Super Bowl week with more people talking about his potential to earn his third Super Bowl ring than talking about his status as a man who has been accused of sexually assaulting two different women.

Roger Goodell probably would have cringed at the thought of this five months ago, but Roethlisberger is the player getting the most attention during Super Bowl week. And most of that attention is positive.
