BTSC Steelers Daily Six Pack- Bam Morris Weighs In On Mike Vick Edition

IX-This article on Bam Morris and Michael Vick is actually a few weeks old, but it got lost in my favorites folder to be un-earthed today.  Morris said he has tried to reach out to Vick during the jail sentence and tried to encourage him not to go down the same path he did when he ruined his NFL Career as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers.  It's worth the read if only to give you a reminder of the potential Morris had and wasted.

X-The Sporting News ranks the top 50 coaches of all time here and I have a feeling that some BTSC'ers might be upset with the placement of Chuck Noll on this list.  Chuck is ranked at number 15 and although it might seem a bit low, it is hard to argue with too many of the people ahead of him on this list of coaching titans.

XIII-Frank "The Tank" Summers has shown in his past a desire and skill for playing special teams, which is rare for an offensive player. Mike Tomlin think Summers could be "Special" if he can package his offensive skill set with that of a special teams player.  I can't think of the last time a fifth round draft pick commanded so much of Steeler Nations' attention, and I can't remember the last time a 7th rounder (A.Q. Shipley) did either.

XIV-Jeff Reed might be just a few more drunken incidents from becoming a complete caricature of himself, but I will tell you one thing, he wrote one of the best accounts of training camp from a players perspective I've read in quiet some time.  It looks like Reed, who was journalism major at UNC, is writing a piece for WHIRL magazine on occasion and hopefully he will create some more fun articles throughout the season.  I will also point you in the direction of One for the Other Thumb, who I grabbed the story from and who also have some more quality pieces from the last few days.

XL-Washington Redskins tight end Chris Cooley can be extremely funny and his recent parody of the Reebox Fantasy Files and Cowboys tight end, Jason Witten had me laughing for a while.  Check out Cooley's official blog for another fantasy file paradoy of Tony Romo. He also has a pretty good piece on training camp.

XLIII-Check out Pittsburgh Sports and Mini-Ponnies for quiet possibly the greatest T-Shirt for a woman, ever.  As tecmo said at PSAMP, every hot chick should be required to wear one.  Also stop by and to see the new Madden 2010 intro that heavily feature the Pittsburgh Steelers.
