    Default Steelers to wear black in Tampa

    Steelers to wear black in Tampa
    September 22nd, 2010

    Here are some tidbits from the Steelers

    [HIGH-LIGHT]--[/HIGH-LIGHT] As expected, the Steelers will be the men in black Sunday in Tampa Bay. Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris said during a conference call Wednesday that Tampa Bay will wear its home (white) jerseys for the 1 p.m. game.

    He downplayed the effect that the heat will have on the Steelers even though they had dehydration issues last Sunday in Tennessee -- and the black jerseys they will again have to wear.

    “I don’t know if you can use psychological warfare on a team like the Pittsburgh Steelers,” Morris said. “You’re talking about a mentally tough team that’s out there with their head coach that’s also mentally tough, and I don’t think he’s going to let little things like that that affect him.”

    [HIGH-LIGHT]--[/HIGH-LIGHT] Morris had nothing but good things to say about Byron Leftwich, whom he benched last season after the Buccaneers got off to an 0-3 start.

    Leftwich eventually gave way at quarterback to rookie Josh Freeman, a first-round draft pick in 2009. Morris said Leftwich mentored Freeman, who will start against the Steelers, even after he lost his starting job.

    “He really gave us great direction in the beginning. He taught Freeman how to become a quarterback, how to lead as a quarterback, how to prepare,” Morris said. “It just so happens the success of the team didn’t happen right away as far as his leadership and being under his control. And a lot things play into that. Always the first person to get the blame would be the quarterback and the head coach is next.

    “He’s a great guy. He’s got that Magic Johnson-like smile that everybody loves, and he lights up a room. He was a pleasure to be around for a year for me.”

    [HIGH-LIGHT]--[/HIGH-LIGHT] The Steelers have re-signed defensive tackle Steve McLendon to their practice squad. Also, outside linebacker James Harrison has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

    Harrison had 11 tackles and two sacks in the Steelers’ demolition of the Titans. He also forced two fumbles and recovered a fumble in the Steelers’ 19-11 win.

    Doesn't surprise me, second straight week wearing the blacks on the road, 7 more turnovers will cure those dehydration problems.

    They had a great rotation last week to combat the heat and I fully expect them to utilize it again this week. I just hope the D is rested and will give Mr. Freeman a proper introduction to the NFL...Stiller Style.

    I'll say it again... I really think that it's "over rated" with talk about the black jerseys... Sure, it plays a small factor, but if I recall correctly, the Steelers have worn them numerous times in the heat during the early part of the season for years...

    Good. I would hate to screw up the mojo. Week 1 black jerseys = Win, Week 2 black jerseys = Win. Week 3 black jerseys = ?

    Is it me or do we tend to play more agressive wearing black? I don't know if it's a physcological thing but I feel we turn it up a bit in the black jerseys. We don't look as intimidating in the white. Who knows?

    ... As long as we don't wear those "dirty q-tip" looking helmets, I'm fine with it...

    No there is a reason the southern teams wear white at home. Wearing black in the sun is a bad idea.

    Being that I work outside the dark color shirts I wear on hot days, I noticed it does wear me out a little faster. Do NFL teams wear mesh jerseys during the hot days ?

    ... I believe so. Or at least to some extent... They are not solid cloth.

    I actually don't like the white pants that go with that uni but the rest I like.

    Yeah those uni's are mesh I am sure that helps but I would probably be more worried about those helmets. It must get muggy as **** inside there.

    I'll bet it really smells on the line of scrimmage. Can you imagine being a female reporter on her first assignment and having to go into the locker room after the game?

    Then why are you not wearing your home colors Raheem? I'm happy...like seeing us in our home unis....everywhere they play..it's a home game...go Steeler Nation...

    I get to see them...our market loves the Steelers....CBS had the Titans-Giants game scheduled...local affiliate got so many calls and complaints, one being me, they asked CBS if they could to show the Steelers...CBS said OK.

    I rushed the field after a game in college once.

    I got pretty close to some d-linemen.

    Man, did they reek.
