The Steelers returned home from handling Thanksgiving business in Indianapolis to get ready to face the Giants.
While the team works off any added holiday pounds over the long weekend we’ll be busy looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Saturday, Dec. 3rd.
Call him Ronald?
Receiver Antonio Brown is a man of many talents. His latest talent is getting weird while addressing the media about the upcoming game. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler describes how Brown requested to be addressed as “Ronald” after Friday’s practice when talking Sunday’s game against the Giants.

Perhaps he intends on wearing Ronald McDonald cleats for the game. The inventor of the Big Mac, Jim Delligatti, recently passed away at the age of 98. The Big Mac was first introduced to Pittsburgh in 1968 when Delligatti invented it in Uniontown.
Never a dull moment.
Watch out for the 8 ½ fingered man
Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is poised to have more sacks than fingers this season. He’s already got seven sacks, including three sacks last week in Cleveland. True, it takes just more than a strong breeze to get a Browns quarterback down but still, that’s impressive.
Pittsburgh’s offensive line is going to have their hands full when trying to keep him away from Ben Roethlisberger on Sunday. Mike Prisuta breaks the matchups down and calls the New York defensive line one of the best in the game right now.
Don’t you dare have any fun
Seems like everyone and their mother got a turn to wave their finger at Antonio Brown this week for his latest end zone celebration. The funniest part of the outrage for Brown and his dancing was that it was really Le’Veon Bell that caused the flag.
Now they both have to pay. Josh Alper of PFT says that Bell and Brown were both fined as a result of the “choreographed celebration” penalty during the 28-7 win over the Colts.
If it wasn’t for Bell running over to congratulate Brown for one of his three touchdowns in that game, he wouldn’t have to fork over $12,154. That’ll teach ‘em.
