    Very much so. And so will we, if we start winning. Out of every team in the NFL, Pgh will have to have a bad @ss D to win. It's ingrained. But what team wins the SB without a solid D? No one.

    I think we covered that in good detail on a previous post.

    Giants 2011; Saints 2009; Colts 2006 come to mind as bad defenses that won the SB.

    Victims’ lawyer fires back against Pounceys

    Posted by Mike Florio on July 28, 2014

    On Friday, three people filed a lawsuit against Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey and Dolphins center Mike Pouncey, alleging that they committed an assault during their birthday party at the Cameo nightclub. On Saturday, the lawyer representing the Pounceys called the case a “complete sham.”

    On Monday, the lawyer representing the three alleged victims fired back.

    Appearing on WINZ with Andy Slater, attorney Marwan Porter predicted that criminal charges will be filed.

    “We’ve been in contact with the Miami Beach Police Department and the investigators on this particular case,” Porter said. “My clients have been very cooperative with them. And more importantly that have independent witnesses who are corroborating the allegations made by my clients. So when you have independent witnesses who are swearing under oath to certain allegations, I think it’s gonna be tough for them not to make a charge in this particular case.”

    Porter added that surveillance video exists, but that he has not yet seen it. He added that letters have been sent to Cameo nightclub instructing them to preserve the evidence harvested via the cameras in the facility.

    Porter also said the comments from the Pounceys’ lawyers displayed a lack of professionalism.

    “These people were beat up, bad,” Porter said. “So I really think that shows a lack of taste. . . . These people had physical injuries. The injuries were visible, and obviously something happened to these people. And you have witnesses that said it was the Pouncey brothers who were responsible for inflicting these injuries. . . .

    “The fact will come out. The facts will come out, and the truth will come out. And justice will be served, and they will have to be accountable for their actions.”

    Ultimately, the surveillance video will help tell a lot of the story. But if independent, neutral witnesses have submitted sworn statements claiming that a Pouncey pounded one or more of the plaintiffs, the only viable defense for each Pouncey could be to blame it all on his identical twin.

    If beating up your fiance is only a 2 game suspension, beating up a stranger should be 1 game at the most. Not worried...

    Good opinion piece on this mess by Ron Cook:

    The alleged incident happened at 4:20 a.m. Why were the Pounceys still at the party at that hour? A lot of people target celebrities and look to make quick money from their fame. That’s especially true when alcohol is involved. Why did the Pounceys put themselves in a position for potential trouble when they have so much to lose? Maurkice Pouncey signed a new six-year, $48 million contract with the Steelers in June. Mike Pouncey is trying to rebuild his reputation after it took a beating last season when he was linked to the Richie Incognito bullying of Dolphins teammate Jonathan Martin.

    Being rich and famous has a lot of privileges, but it also has negative side. You have to give up a lot of your individual freedoms. You can’t just do anything you want because people always are watching. Some are looking to take advantage of you. Is it fair that you can’t always go to the same places and enjoy some of the same things that ordinary citizens do? Of course, it isn’t fair. But is it reality? Absolutely. You are not an ordinary citizen.

    So was Ben in Georgia. And Ben clearly showed way better judgement in his case. He hired security/Sober drivers for his guests, ect. Now, like Ben, who was basically given a suspension because HE put himself in a Bad situation....at least according to Goodell's final decision...he justified Ben's 6 game suspension.


    So, no matter IF no LEGAL charges are brought...doesn't Goodell, and the Steelers have to be consistent, and suspend Pouncey as well ?

    sure..

    the Steelers should suspend every player who gets in trouble to appease Ben and his defenders.
