    lmao... claim that if you wanna, but, mine is on the internet (somewhere). was probably on the PPG board - seems like i was tryna convince one of the beat writers who frequented the board...
    it was really a dumb luck watching him single-handedly keep Purdue in a game where they were clearly outmatched (thinking Michigan state at the time). We were still rolling with Kordell and Maddox and needed a QB.

    And where the heck was Vance?

    What??????
    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.

    A whole bunch of feel good stories about players getting along and having chemistry this offseason.

    Yet, we really had no idea if it would translate to chemistry on the field.

    Seems we heard the same comments about Brady early last season on maybe this was finally the year he shows he's done.
    Fast forward a few games and he and NE are back in conversation about a SB berth.

    That look of disinterest by Roethlisberger?... more likely a look of resignation the game was going the way so many games against NE have gone before.

    Gotcha. Switzer hiring an ice cream truck for everyone and receivers meeting up with Ben in Georgia in the offseason.

    Since your response immediately followed a “where the heck was Vance?” question, I thought you might be implying that Vance McDonald may have been lounging around eating ice cream this offseason, and I certainly heard no reports of Vance reporting out of shape.

    It's everyone's job to be prepared to play at the professional level. Everyone receives a pay check.

    The team was out coached and didn't play well. It happens.
