AB's pick, Hines on Ben, Gaga talks Steelers

Posted Feb 2, 2017

This & That: A look at what is being said at Super Bowl LI.

AB’s plan: Antonio Brown is among several Steelers players in Houston this week for Super Bowl LI, and made the rounds with different media outlets, including the Dan Patrick Show.

Brown was asked by Patrick about his future with the Steelers, and he never hesitated with his answer.

“I’ll be a Steeler for life,” said Brown. “That is my plan.”

Brown also went on ESPN’s First Take, and while he isn’t ‘rooting’ for the New England Patriots, he did pick them over the Atlanta Falcons.

“Tom Brady, you know he is going to move the ball, possess the ball and put up points,” said Brown.

Bell in the running: Brown isn’t the only one who made a pick. Le’Veon Bell also made his pick, but went opposite of Brown. Bell picked the Falcons to beat the Patriots, 38-31.

Bell is up for the FedEx Ground Player of the Year, which will be announced during the NFL Honors Award show on Saturday night.

Bell, who will become an unrestricted free agent on March 9, indicated he wants to remain with the Steelers.

“Obviously, I want to play with the Steelers,” Bell said on NFL Network. “I don't want to change teams and things like that.”

Not buying it: Hines Ward appeared on NFL Network and shared his thoughts on the possibility of Ben Roethlisberger retiring. “I don’t buy that,” said Ward. “You still have two good years to make another run at the Super Bowl. I don’t see Ben walking away from the game right now.”

Steelers Nation: Music superstar Lady Gaga highlights the Super Bowl LI Halftime Show, and during a press conference one of the first questions she was asked came from Steelers’ Hall of Famer and NFL on Fox analyst Terry Bradshaw.

After answering the question, Lady Gaga told Bradshaw ‘This is a big win for me with my grandma right now,’ because half of her family are massive Steelers fans and (her grandmother) is ‘wigging out on the couch watching this.’ She asked Bradshaw to wish her grandmother a Happy Birthday, for which he happily obliged, and then he gave her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, a signed football.

Hall of Fame friends: Many Pro Football Hall of Famers are gathered in Houston for Super Bowl LI, including former teammates Dermontti Dawson and Kevin Greene, who had to take advantage of a photo opportunity.



Steelers to the end: Pittsburgh native Beth Stern, wife of Howard Stern, appeared on NFL Network and shared her love for the Steelers.

“I think if you are born in Pittsburgh you will forever be a Pittsburgh sports fan,” said Stern. “It’s one of those things you are born, it’s in your blood, its Steelers to the end no matter what with me. I am so proud of them.”
