    @PittsburghSport

    You wouldn't know it, but since January 2016 the @Steelers are tied for the LEAST number of players arrested in the NFL. With ONE.

    GB leads with 9
    Jets had 8
    Bengals and Rams with 7
    Dallas, Philly, AZ and Denver with 6#Steelers

    NFL suspends Lance Kendricks one game
    By Michael David Smith | Aug 24, 2019, 4:25 PM EDT

    Patriots tight end Lance Kendricks will not be available for the first game of the season.

    The NFL has suspended Kendricks one game for violating the NFL policy on substance abuse, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. He’ll miss the Sunday night opener against the Steelers in Week One.

    Kendricks was sentenced to probation last month for marijuana possession. The Patriots signed him after the sentencing, so they knew going in that a suspension was possible.

    The Patriots will also be without tight end Ben Watson for the first four games of the season while he serves a suspension, so they’ll be thin at the position to start the season.
    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.

    That BB runs a tight no nonsense ship right? oh wait, never mind.

    It's interesting how Steelers fans like to trash the Steelers for their lack of leadership and discipline when other teams around the league have similar issues.

    It really boils down to win vs losses. Win and everything is "ok" even with "issues". Lose and people like to bring up nonsense excuses like leadership and disciple as key factors. The Steelers were not that far away from making the playoffs last year. What happened out on the field had more to do with this team not making the playoffs than the manufactured fake issues that people like to bring up.

    Patrick Chung pleads not guilty to cocaine possession

    Posted by Josh Alper on August 26, 2019, 10:29 AM EDT

    Patriots safety Patrick Chung was indicted on a felony cocaine possession charge in New Hampshire last week and the legal proceedings associated with the case continued on Monday.

    The Associated Press reports that Chung waived a court appearance on the charge by pleading not guilty through a lawyer. Another court appearance has been set for November 8.

    Police responded to a “call for service” at Chung’s residence on June 25 and found the evidence that led to the indictment. Chung was not arrested at the time.

    Chung is subject to discipline under the league’s substance abuse policy if he’s convicted pleads guilty or no contest or enters a diversionary program to resolve the charges. With the next court date not until November, it seems unlikely that resolution will come during the 2019 season.
