Brown, Sanders receivers of the future

February 4, 2011

Despite being traditionally heralded as a run-first, pass-later offensive football team, two Steeler wide receivers in particular, rookies Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders, are making an immediate impact on the field.
While Brown had 16 receptions in the regular season for 167 yards, good enough for a 10.4 average, his 58-yard reception versus Baltimore set up a game-winning touchdown. The following week, Brown had a 14-yard reception at the end of the game that enabled the Steelers to kneel the ball and earn their third Super Bowl trip in six seasons.

It’s Pittsburgh’s eighth Super Bowl appearance, the Steelers have the most wins with six and are tied with the most appearances with the Dallas Cowboys. Green Bay has won 12 NFL championships, the most in the league.

Roethlisberger can come full-circle with win

February 4, 2011

He was never charged legally but that means he wasn't punished for his lapse in judgment.
