    Next year, Burress should be eligible to start receiving Social Security checks, though.

    Ab is questionable, so he's improving

    Burress?? Not excited. I'm actually not sure why anyone who likes the Steelers would be.

    A white backup quarterback? Say it isn't so...
    He was born a poor black child



    Narcissistic injury is the term used for any threat to a narcissist's outsized ego or self-esteem.

    If the Steelers had to sign an over-the-hill, former Steelers WR I'd have rather seen them sign Hines instead.

    Swann and Stallworth looked like they were in good shape at the team's 80th birthday celebration at halftime of Sunday night's game.

    Cotch is out next week as well. Without signing Burress we would be down to three healthy WRs and Gilreath wasn't on the active roster a week ago.

    Maybe we should nickname him Vitiligo.

    I'm trying to think of other Steelers who started out with us, left for a while, then came back again. Right now, Willie Williams, Chad Brown, and Plaxico Burress come to mind. Others I am missing?
