    Apparently Pouncey has announced the Steelers were going to do the "Right thing" this weekend.... as if admitting that last weekends pregame debacle was wrong. see article below:

    Maurkice Pouncey said that he expects every member of the Pittsburgh Steelers to be standing for Sunday's National Anthem in Baltimore.
    Pouncey made the announcement following Pittsburgh's Wednesday afternoon practice in preparation for Sunday's game against the Ravens.
    "[The] Pittsburgh Steelers will go out there and do the right thing," Pouncey said, via ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.
    A day earlier, Ben Roethlisberger said that the team had 98 percent figured out their plans for Sunday's National Anthem. And while they may still lock arms or show additional forms of unity, one thing that is clear is that every member of the Steelers will be standing this Sunday and every NFL game day moving forward.

    Players, team owners discussed anthem with Roger Goodell in NY Tuesday night
    Posted by Josh Alper on September 28, 2017, 3:19 PM EDT

    A group of players and team owners met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to discuss the national anthem and player protests in New York City on Tuesday night.

    Giants linebacker Jonathan Casillas said on Thursday that he was one of the players at the meeting along with Eagles defensive end Chris Long, Patriots wide receiver Matthew Slater, Patriots safety Devin McCourty, Browns cornerback Jason McCourty and Browns linebacker Christian Kirksey.

    Giants co-owner John Mara, Patriots owner Robert Kraft, ***STEELERS OWNER ART ROONEY II***, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, Browns owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and Jaguars owner Shahid Khan were there as was NFL exec Troy Vincent for a discussion about how the league, teams and players will approach the playing of the anthem in the weeks to come.

    “We were basically talking about what we’re going to do to move forward and how we’re going to approach the whole kneeling situation,” Casillas said, via NJ.com. “It was a whole bunch of opinions shared. There was nothing we decided we’re going to do collectively.”

    NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said earlier on Thursday that Goodell has been “facilitating conversation between players and owners and coaches” but that the league office will not dictate “one uniform approach” to how teams approach the national anthem.

    As for the Giants’ own approach, Casillas said he and several other members of the team met with Mara on Wednesday night and Mara asked that all players stand during the playing of the anthem. Mara also said that he is “in full support of anybody that kneels” as Olivier Vernon, Damon Harrison and Landon Collins did before last Sunday’s game.

    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    Too little, too late. Damage can't be undone, even after just 6 months!
