    Maurkice will probably be served next week in New England if he travels with the team.

    Makes interesting discussions about whether to extend Pouncey who has injury history and now this. You know he is going to want to be the highest paid Center in the NFL. Sorry, but I'm not buying that.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    1. Eric Ebron, TE
    2. Calvin Pryor, S
    3 (Comp). Jaylen Watkins, CB
    4. Justin Ellis, DT/NT

    Perhaps he'll be incarcerated with his brother and Hernandez, working on another remake of the Longest Yard, and take the decision out of the hands of the FO.

    "Free Hernandez".

    Despite recent trends to the contrary, I think this shows the old fashioned tropes of "You can judge a man by his friends", and "Character counts" are still valid.

    I felt bad to have Markice wear the B&G after seeing those photos of him and his brother with the hat. Happy to see him go, even *IF* there is a short-term loss to the Steelers.


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    Mike Pouncey in Hot Water in Hernandez Case....

    Report: Authorities are looking at Mike Pouncey as more than a witness

    Dolphins center Mike Pouncey apparently is more than a mere witness in the ever-growing case(s) against Aaron Hernandez.


    Greg Bedard of SI.com, who with Pete Thamel reported on Sunday that Pouncey has been subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury investigating Hernandez, gave a more dire assessment to Pouncey’s potential predicament during a Monday morning appearance on WQAM’s The Joe Rose Show.


    “Overall, I would say this is a serious situation for Mike Pouncey,” Bedard said. “This is not a situation where they just think he might have evidence towards the charges against Aaron Hernandez. If he goes in there [to testify before the grand jury] thinking that’s what it’s about, he will be underprepared. He should be prepared that the authorities are looking at him in regards to some charges.”


    It’s not clear what the charges would or could be, but Bedard at one point made reference to the issue of finances. Bedard also said that Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey (Mike’s twin) could be summoned to testify at some point, too.


    With one murder case pending against Hernandez and a double-murder case possible, authorities reportedly are exploring whether Hernadnez was engaged in the illegal trafficking of weapons. That detour from the murder charges has the feel of an effort to ensure that there will be a way to put an actual or perceived “bad guy” away, in the event the murder charge(s) don’t stick.
    Was there more to that hat than we know?

    Who’s scheduled to play the Patriots this weekend? You guessed it…the Steelers. Since Maurkice is on I.R., though, do you think he opts to remain in Pittsburgh to watch the game at home rather than joining his teammates on the sidelines in Foxboro and then getting served? Maurkice taking the trip with his teammates to New England could potentially be more damaging than Ryan Clark taking the trip with his teammates to Denver.

    Except there is no reason why Clark can't play in Denver. His spleen is gone. He can play.

    So, do we get a comp pick if the Pouncey twins are charged in this torrid affair? I mean damn...

    He would be wise to stay home. Of course, its Pouncey, so counting on him to do something wise...
