Thank You Fans

The Pittsburgh Steelers are encouraging fans to arrive at Sunday night’s divisional showdown against the Bengals early to take advantage of prizes and giveaways before the game. Teresa Varley explains that early fans can get a Steelers Nation Unite Terrible Towel and the rest of fans will be able to win lots of other prizes available as well as the franchise’s way to show appreciation to the best fan base in the world.

Polamalu and Taylor Questionable

Troy Polamalu and Ike Taylor have both missed the last two games with injury and according to ESPN’s Scott Brown; they may miss the final game of the regular season as well. Both were limited in practice on Friday afternoon. Ike Taylor hasn’t played since giving up an 81-yard touchdown catch to Cincinnati’s A.J. Green in the first meeting between the Steelers and Bengals and has been ok with staying on the sidelines to give way to the younger guys while he rehabs.

"“It’s like playing quarterback; you’ve got to be in a groove. We’ve been doing good so far so let the young guys roll. Tomlin is the head man so the head man makes the last and final decisions regardless of how I feel. That’s what they’re paying him to do is make executive decisions.” – Ike Taylor"

Foster Fined

Steelers guard Ramon Foster was fined for fighting in last week’s game against the Chiefs while William Gay was not for his questionable “taunting” penalty.
