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.

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.

Woody Paige of the Denver Post lambastes the fans for selling their tickets to Steeler fans.

Also here is the transcript for Mike Tomlins' post game press conference as well as his weekly Tuesday press conference.
