Players share their bye week plans

What They're Saying…

Steelers' players weigh in on their plans for the bye weekend.

Linebacker Sean Spence: "I am going home. I am going down to sunny Miami. Everywhere else on the map is frozen and it's 79 degrees in Miami so I am going to get some sun."


Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger:** "I am going to spend time with my family. No firm plans, but spending time with them."

Safety Robert Golden: "I am going to relax, catch up on my rest and kick my feet up."

Wide Receiver Lance Moore: "I am relaxing. I am going to fly out West to San Diego and hang out with my girlfriend. The main goal in it is get to some warm weather."

Defensive End Brett Keisel: "My wife and I are going to go to New York, do some shopping and go see the 9/11 Memorial. We are just going to enjoy some time together."Defensive End Stephon Tuitt: "I am excited to get the time off and get a chance to see my family and see Notre Dame play on Saturday. It's going to be different. It will be awesome to go back and experience watching a game while not being in it. That will be kind of cool."

Cornerback Antwon Blake: "I am going to go home to Houston and then come back and be ready to take on the New Orleans Saints."

Fullback Will Johnson: "I went to see West Virginia play Kansas State at home on Thursday night. It was the first game I got to see in person since I left. My wife, Jessica, and I really looked forward to it. We got to be on the sidelines, got to be around the guys and let them see my face. I was excited to be back there."

Center Maurkice Pouncey: "I am hosting my turkey drive. That is all I am looking forward to and excited about, that and spending time with my family."
