As much as I love the Steelers, I would too.
I will watch the Steeler games all the way back to 2004 and obviously up to the current time. Yes, our Steelers were more excited when playing, more enthusiastic and showed the college/young attitude. No Kidding !!! They were younger, not very removed from college ! Of course the Dolphin players are going to be more hyped up or show more desire, they I'm guessing are young and never won anything. Can anyone say that what excited them back in their college days or prior to having children gives them the same thrill or response as today ? People/players mature and the difference between the Steelers and many other teams or players are, the Steelers are not acting like they've been there before, they have been there before nd more than once.
" We'll do the same thing we always do, we'll take every situation from week to week and do what we think is best for that week and evaluate it on that basis.. If cheating will give us the edge as it has always done then, we will continue to cheat. " Bill Belichick
and in 2011 when he signed for $120 mill and they asked him who he wanted at QB he said this:
"Recently ESPN reported that the Cardinals asked for Fitzgerald's thoughts on whom the team should bring in to play quarterback, and the star wide receiver mentioned both Marc Bulger and Kevin Kolb as quarterbacks he'd be interested in lining up with."
So Larry got what he wanted so he doesn't really have a reason to act out. Now, if he was on the tail end of a contract or if he preferred a different QB and Kolb was forced on him who knows how Fitz would handle it.
Don't get me wrong... I think the guy is a class act but he is being paid some serious money.
In honor of Wally playing in South Beach, he needs a new nickname.
How bout Tuna Roll?
