The NFL rescinded its bullshit fine to Justin Tuck late this past week, but naturally upheld the latest in a series of nonsensical ones to a Steeler, this one to LaMarr Woodley for a pretty garden-variety planting of Jason Campbell last week. Not that Shaun Rogers was ever disciplined for the cheap shot he took on Roethlisberger in Week 2.
The list of Steelers fined this season include Hines Ward (twice), Ryan Clark (twice, once for honoring deceased former teammate Sean Taylor), James “Silverback” Harrison, Nate Washington and James Farrior. I take it The Rog didn’t take that “pansy league” comment by Polamalu kindly. Try to levy one on Max Starks. He’s got money to burn.
Meanwhile, Mike Tomlin reunites with his coaching mentor and Tony Dungy tries to get a win against the team that gave him his coaching start. It’s good enough storyline to make me ignore the “Steelers trying to lose second consecutive home game to a Manning” one.
