BTSC Steelers Daily Six Pack- Veterans Day Edition

IX-In honor of veterans day let's look at this ESPN report about Rocky Bleier that previously aired before this weeks Monday Night game. Also make sure to read the story at ESPN.com. Happy Veterans Day!

X-Congratulations to Tyrone "Predator" Carter on his two interception performance that won him the AFC defensive player of the week award.  The award is Carter's first in his career and it certainly says something about the depth and standard of expectation of this Steeler team when a back-up safety is capable of putting in a game changing performance.

XIII-I was in attendance at last years' Monday Night game in Washington D.C. where Steelers fans took over one of the largest stadiums in the NFL and turned it from a hostile environment into a home-field advantage.  The reports from the game played on Monday night this year at Denver are quite similar and even more surprising considering the solid fan-base and the great start to the season that Denver has enjoyed.  Woody Paige of the Denver Post lambastes the fans for selling their tickets to Steeler fans. 

XIV-It doesn't look like Ed Bouchette did his normal Tuesday chat. (he was probably busy explaining to his editor how horrible his job was) Anyways, here is another Post Gazette writer, Jerry Micco's chat transcript.  Also here is the transcript for Mike Tomlins' post game press conference as well as his weekly Tuesday press conference.

XL-Is it just me or has Chad Ochocinco been a lot less annoying this year and much more comical this season?  Between bribing referees and telling Champ Bailey to kiss the baby he has made the Bengals fun to watch.  His latest antic was this week he shipped some mustard over to Pittsburgh because the defense won't be able to "ketchup."  Say what you want about Chad's bad attitude but this year I thought it was quite impressive when he bought up a bunch of tickets in week 6 to help the Bengals avoid a blackout.

XLIII-Here is a list of post-game wrap-ups from around the blogosphere:
