Born and raised in Southern California. My father is a true fan from the early 70's. I grew up watching the games and really got Black & Gold fever when he took me to the 05' Monday night game in San Diego. It was almost magical seeing 3/4 of Qualcomm, a sea of Terrible Towels and black and gold. I didn't have a towel at the time so I went to the souvenir stand and shelled out 20 bucks for an extra large yellow Chargers shirt that said something about winning a division...I don't recall. But when I ripped that shirt in half and started waving that thing it almost chemically induced a bond between me and this team. That year we went on to get one for the thumb. Since that Monday night I've been collecting the steel stuff. Never missing a game, and following religiously. I want to attend a Heinz Field game more than anything. Until that day I'll rep the Steelers out here in sunny SoCal. Where fair weathered teams with electric bolts on their helmets can never seem to get it done when the weather gets tough. Here we go Steelers. Here we go...

Hines Ward on Ed Reed

Ed Reed comes in as the #88 football player of all time. Hines Ward has respect for the second best safety in the league.

LaMarr Woodley, the Gentleman

51

With all the negativity around the NFL in the off season, it is nice to see that Woodley has his head in the right place, not worrying about paychecks and skipping drills. Woodley is a class act, and I hope the FO works hard at extending this man's contract.

"Everyone on this team has been through adversity at one period of time and that's what's so special about football. This is the one place you can come and get away from your problems, kind of leave all of that baggage at home. We'll welcome him with open arms. He's still our quarterback and he doesn't have to win over anybody." - Hines Ward

Congrats to Tyrone Carter. He's a valid starter in waiting when we need him. He went above and beyond at Invesco Field. I'm glad we have such a neat guy like Carter on our team.
