BTSC Steelers Daily Six Pack- People of Walmart Edition

New, comments

IX-Bruce Arians receives more flack than probably any coordinator that I can think of in recent Steeler memory.  Fans and even some of the media have called for his head on different occasions and despite helping the Steelers win their most recent Super Bowl, many fans still wanted Arians fired.  The NYTimes Fifth Down blog breaks down the Steelers current offense which according to them is just really a spawn on the offense that was created all the way back in the days of Mike Mularkey.

X-Unless Ben Roethlisberger has a major setback today or tomorrow he is expecting to play at least a half in Saturday's match-up against the Bills, even though his leg is not yet 100% according to him.  Make sure to check back to BTSC on Saturday evening for the live thread to discuss the game with other members of Steeler Nation.

XIII-This one is completely non-Steeler related but it is probably the funniest website I have seen in a while so you might want to give it a try.  The website is "People of Walmart" and it is just random pictures of the gross specimens of human behavior that are in and or around a Walmart.

XIV-The Steelers beat the Ravens three times last season and the Ravens have made it clear that they have their sights set on Pittsburgh this season.  Earlier in the offseason Joe Flacco talked about his desire to beat the Steelers and Terrell Suggs was photgraphed wearing a t-shirt that said "You Bet Your Sweet Ass I Hate The Steelers."  Now Frank Walker who is only known for one reason by Steeler fans and that is because he spit in Mitch Berger's mouth last season, was seen around the Raven's facility with his own shirt.  Check out Mondesi's House for more details.

XL-Lawrence Timmons posted a new blog at his website today after a conversation with Mike Tomlin.  Timmons really seems to say all the right things even though he has had some problems with the run game so far this preseason.  (As pointed out by Post Game Heroes).  His respect for Tomlin is immense and after reading about how Tomlin calls all his players just to see how they are doing and what he can help them with outside of football, it certainly makes you realize what the Rooney's saw in him.

XLIII-I encourage all of you to go over to Pittsburgh Sports and Mini-Ponnies and check out his new segment "Great Moments is Unlicensed Pittsburgh Sports Merchandise."  Not only do I encourage you to check out the segment but also to contribute to the fun by submitting your own merchandise.  I have a few that I am taking pictures of this week.

P.S.- Help a friend win running shoes by voting for "Stabbing Sole" here in this contest.  She was winning up until today.  DO IT!
