The Pittsburgh Steelers have gotten so far away from their identity that they are now worried about another team bullying them on the field.
The Steelers will the host the NFL’s version of the Detroit Bad Boys when the Lions roll into the town, and several Pittsburgh players have made it known that Suh and his boys “won’t be bullying” them anytime sooner.
“We’re definitely not going to get bullied,” Emanuel Sanders said Thursday, via Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “That’s not going to happen around here. Nobody is going to bully no one around here.
“As far as matching their intensity, we’re definitely going to match their intensity. No one is going to walk over us.”
“Everyone knows who’s the dirtiest player in the league right now,” Sanders said regarding Suh. “He takes pride in that. He takes pride in being one of the dirtiest players because, on defense, you’ve got to have to have that mentality. But we’re not going to get bullied.”
