IX - There may be no Steelers game this weekend, but I know many of you will be tuning in to Week 11 action across the NFL, specifically the Bengals-Ravens game early Sunday afternoon in Baltimore. Fortunately, looks like lots of you will get the game, at least if you live east of the Mississippi. Here's your NFL Week 11 TV Distribution Map.
X - I think I just read a Tim Tebow - Michael Jordan comparison. Wait, did I just read a Tebow/MJ comparison? Holy moly. I did. Excuse me while I go sew my head to the carpet. I was just as impressed as the next guy, and I too think it's a bit foolish for some to dismiss him as a doomed bust at QB in the NFL. But Michael Jordan??? Please, please, PLEASE stop sports writers.
XIII - Max Starks called in to The Freak Show on 96.1 KISS FM to have some light-hearted bye week discussion. You'll get a chuckle out of his comment about Gatorade and Mike Tomlin.
XIV - Hey, we're not the only ones hoping for a Bengals win this weekend over the Ravens. So too are Steelers players, obviously well aware of what the most favorable scenarios are each week, despite what they may say about not thinking about anything other than the task at hand and what they can control.
XL - Got my Week 11 picks in just in time over at SB Nation Pittsburgh. I'm starting to get a feel for the league after a wild and wacky first two months of the season! 10-3 last week, and 1-0 to start this week. Like I did last week, I'll throw in a couple 'locks' and potential upsets.
XLIII - That's two in a row over at SB Nation Pittsburgh, so I might as well get it out of the way and complete the trifecta -- you really should be following the Sandusky story over there. The coverage is consolidated into one tidy stream, and believe me, the site is getting to everything being written and said about the ongoing saga. It's one-stop shopping quite literally.
