While he spent last season sidelined with a leg injury, Maurkice Pouncey had plenty of time to watch what the Steelers' offense is capable of.
And Pouncey shared the top three things he likes about the offense as the Steelers prepare for the 2016 regular season. And of course, it all starts with his fellow linemen.
The Steelers prepare for the Week 4 preseason matchup against the Carolina Panthers.
"The first thing I like is how our offensive line plays together," said Pouncey. "We are a band of brothers and we have been here for a while together. We all love each other and we go out and fight for each other every day."
- "The second thing I like is we have the best quarterback in the NFL in Ben Roethlisberger," said Pouncey. "He is awesome. He makes every single throw. He is a true leader. A lot more people need to respect that. He does a great job of keeping everybody together and making this team look amazing. We all appreciate him for that."
- "And the third thing, is 'Downtown' Antonio Brown. Man what a blessing to have him on our team," said Pouncey. "It's unreal to see somebody work that hard every single day. To have the accolades he has now and to still see him come out and do it every single day, work that hard every day, man it's awesome to watch. I am enjoying his career. We came in together. We were roommates. As we grow and the more years we put in, it's awesome to watch it. You can appreciate stuff like that. You don't see that on every team.
"Every time we go to practice and we go to the film room, we all sit there and watch it and say, 'Man, how lucky are we.'"
