This week's question comes after several Steelers players could not finish a few of the practices last week in Latrobe. Several noteable veterens in addition to rookie wideout Limas Sweed could not participate in the afternoon practices because of hammies and other bodily aches. I'm most concerned about the rookies, and my point is this; for the second year in a row, the Steelers rookies have had injury problems before the season began. In '07 it was Lawrence Timmons and now its both Rashard Mendenhall and Limas Sweed, (I'm speaking of Mendenhall's mini-camp injury). My question is this, with the number of training camp injuries growing by the day, do you think Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin is going too hard on the players?
My second question has very little to do with football, but it's something that has been bothering me for some time now. A few years ago, (I believe it might have been during or shortly after the Steelers 21-10 victory over the Seahawks in Super Bowl XL), I remember seeing a commercial for Miller Lite where Burt Reynolds, Jerome Bettis, Jimmy Johnson, Triple-H, and a few other men sat around a table discussing "man laws." One of those man laws was that fruit was NOT to be mixed with beer. Fast forward a couple of years to today, and I see an add for Bud Light (I know it's not the same beer, but it's still a beer), and it is introducing Bud Light Lime. I'm sorry, but does this not go against the man law commercial? Do you agree or disagree with the invention, marketing, and selling of Bud Light Lime?
Just so everyone knows out there, the second question is a legitamate question, but it also serves as a joke, so don't take it too personally if I offend anyone, it's really not my purpose.
