    I believe that Rob Gronkowski was born in Buffalo NOT in Pittsburgh. His dad moved him to Pittsburgh because of the quality of high school football played here. Funny that an athlete wouldn't come here for the academics!

    What is Hines Wards record or count for catching a pass in coonsecutive games ? Wonder how far up the chart that ranks him ?
    I also wonder if there is a stat for a receiver catching more than one pass in consecutive games ?
