    Does anyone here have any INSIDE information

    on our steelers or any NFL team?

    anybody play in the NFL?
    anyone have a family member in the NFL?
    friend in NFL?
    coach or have coached in NFL?
    relative that is/has coached in NFL?
    friend of a parent of an NFL player?
    work in the NFl?
    relative or friend work in the NFL?

    with all the talk and speculation that happens on this message board(and every other for that matter), is there anyone here that has any actual connection to the steelers or any other NFL team?

    ME= my coworker is the step mother to a currect steeler
    i have another coworker that is the step brother of a former NFL player

    It was very cool when we had Mike Lorello's dad on the board when the former WVU Mountaineer spent a couple of training camps (and possibly practice squads...I forget) with us a few years back.

    I have no connections personally, but there is someone on here who claims to have been inside the weight room at the Steeler practice facility (fo wheel!). I would say more, but I don't want anyone accusing me of making ad hominem attacks or straw man arguments.

    My Mom routinely runs into Jason Gildon and she sees a bunch of the other Steelers at the gym in the offseason from time to time including, among others, Ziggy and Chris Hoke. This great connection has yielded zero inside information for me.

    Was very cool when Lorello's dad was a poster. Jim Wexell also used to post on the old trib forum under a different name.

    I went to school/graduated with a front office person who is good friends with someone I grow up with and is like family. The only perk for me is I went to camp in place of my friend last year. My friend gets a few other perks, games and such. It is really cool for my friend, but feels funny asking for anything. So if there is no offer my friend won't ask. I give my friend a hard time about it. No "inside info" ever though.

    Legursky's dad is a regular at my brother-in-law's barber shop. The only inside scoop I've ever gotten was a heads up few years ago that Legs was gonna make the final cut prior to camp closing.

    I'm good friends with a guy who played with Ty Law and is cool with Revis and Baldwin. No inside scoop though...

    I know Jeff Blake, Robert Jones, (who are brother-in-laws) and John Jett- all retired now. And a few other former ECU players who play/ played in the NFL who shall remain nameless-lol.. OK, I said enough..

    Oops- Forgot- haven't seen him in ages, but I know Scott Fitzkee too.

    Sorry- presently, no Steelers
