The Steelers are one win away from Super Bowl LI after toughing it out against the Kansas City Chiefs.
While the team prepares to travel to Foxboro to take on the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship we’ll be looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Tuesday, Jan. 17th.
Rookie safety Sean Davis was a few moments away from getting a city-wide stink eye upon Pittsburgh’s return from Kansas City. Mike Prisuta details how Davis bounced back from a helmet-to-helmet unnecessary roughness penalty that gave the Chiefs life and a fresh set of downs at the Steelers’ 12-yard line.

The Chiefs would go on to score and pull within two and Davis turned to coach Tomlin on the sidelines in between plays.
"“Just relax and play ball. Don’t worry about it, don’t blink, don’t freak out. You live to fight another down.” – Mike Tomlin"
He did just that and with his breaking up of the pass for Kansas City’s potential game-tying two-point conversion he gave Pittsburgh life in the playoffs.
They’re all a—holes
Ramon Foster stepped up on Monday afternoon when some of the players were available to media to go ahead and address the Antonio Brown Facebook Live video. Sean Gentille of the PPG says that Foster was the first player available and just went ahead and put it all out on the table.
When asked how he would feel if he heard Bill Belichick refer to his team the way Tomlin referred to the Patriots in a NSFW manner.
"“I’d appreciate it, because everybody in this league is an a—hole, in my opinion. You have to be to play this sport. The coaches didn’t become head coaches by being nice guys.” – Ramon Foster"
Some guys are just more a—holes than others, obviously.
Ain’t no rest for the stacked
The team’s plane touched down in Pittsburgh at 3:46 a.m. on Monday morning, according to NFL Network’s End Around. By 5:10 James Harrison was in the weight room with his sweat suit on lifting like, a thousand pounds or something.
He played 55 of the 58 defensive snaps against the Chiefs and he won’t even sleep in on a victory Monday. Back in 2013 he told SI that he spends between $400K and $600K on his body annually between workout equipment, treatments and dietary supplements.
I’ve spent about the same so far but cumulative and mostly on tacos and breakfast sandwiches.
