That’s right the round up is back!  It feels good to have to time to do this again.  I know I’ve missed so much since my last round up!  So, let’s dive right in.

  • James Harrison hasn’t changed one bit since my one.  The NFL has all kinds of crazy things going on now with the bounties and the referees association filing unfair labor practices against the NFL.  Harrison claims on his Facebook page that the Steelers knew what was up with the NFL which is why they didn’t ratify the new CBA:

@RealRClark25 Now their starting to see why we didn’t vote for the CBA, and it wasn’t, as some ppl suggested, because I had a large influence on the decision!

  • Charlie Batch has been making some of his teammates and coaches take pictures with him in his new signature pose.

 

  • LaMarr Woodley was busy this week being on MTV2′s Hip Hop Squares:

Gonna be 1 of the squares on MTV2′s Hip Hop Squares 2mrw night at 11pm… tune in and lemme kno what yall think!!

  • James Harrison gets in two times this week, as he poked fun at Maurkice Pouncey, thought I’m not sure Pouncey is all too concerned:

Sorry Pouncey, but the SEC’s got nothin on the MAC!! Big win for my kent state golden flashes over the gatorbait florida gators!!!

  • Ben Roethlisberger had his football camp this week and received some help from his teammates.  Brett Keisel was there and put some pictures of him at the camp up on his official website.  You can check them out here!
  • A great article in the Trib this week about how Casey Hampton is mentoring the rookie Alameda Ta’amu at minicamp.  Such a great article!
  • Two quotes of the week this week.  Well actually one of them was technically from last week which is why it’s ok!  The first one comes from last week when Hall of Famer Jack Butler came to visit with the Steelers.    Best quote from the article comes from Ryan Mundy:

“He is a living legend and that is special, motivating and inspiring,” said Ryan Mundy. “To see a guy who is a Hall of Famer, accomplished what he has, it’s a humbling feeling and gives you a good feeling about being a part of this organization.”

  • And the second set of quotes comes from an article on NFL.com about Big Ben one from Ryan Clark and one from Troy Polamalu:

“I don’t think we could ever have a — I don’t want to say prissy — but I don’t think we could ever have that style of quarterback here,” safety Troy Polamalu said.

“Of course you don’t want him to get hurt,” Ryan Clark said. “You take the good with the bad. That’s like me telling Troy, ‘Hey Troy, I want you to do exactly what the book says every play.’ You take away someone’s greatness when you limit what they can do with their athletic ability or their God-given talent.”
