Keisel: 'There is always work to be done'

What They're Saying…

Steelers' players weigh in on what can be accomplished during the bye week.


efensive End Brett Keisel:**"There is always work to be done. There are always ways to improve and get better. That is what the bye week is for. Guys that are nicked up can get some rest. Guys that need the work and need to get out on the field and work can do that. It's beneficial in a lot of ways and helps you prepare for your next game."

Wide Receiver Lance Moore:
"It's a time to focus on the remaining part of the journey. For us having a late bye week it's a gift and curse. It's a good thing because we are getting rest late when other teams are piling games in a row. It's a chance for us to get our bodies back together and have a chance to have our minds refocused when we come back. It's good to get away and break the monotony."

Guard Ramon Foster:

"It will be a chance to get the small things out of the way. The preparation of repairing your body will be one of the main things you have to do. You have to relax, but keep your job on your mind at all times."

Cornerback Antwon Blake:**

"It's definitely an opportunity to take that free time and do whatever you can from a maintenance standpoint. At this point of the season you have a lot of bumps and bruises and aches, so it's best to handle those while you can."

Fullback Will Johnson:

"For me personally I want to take advantage of being in the weight room. I want to take care of my body and use this time to get my body right and recover. I want to take care of the aches and pains that might accumulate during the season. I personally like having the bye week later in the season like this. This is my first year having it this late. It will be a good time to get my body right."
