James Conner Is Ready For Steelers Camp - Are You?
If I was a football player (and by no sort of the imagination am I - except for those Ridgway, PA classics had on Timmy Malello's backyard [also known as Concussion Field] when I'd be slinging Nerf balls 60 yards deep), first day of training camp would be the most exciting part of the season for me. It's gotta have that first day of school feeling, but instead of rolling in with a sweet new Space Jam trapper keeper you're literally rolling into school with a chauffeured Rolls Royce.
Plus, everybody's looking to prove themselves. Jocking for position as it were, and if you happened to read Coach W.'s post from yesterday, you'd know that there are plenty of opportunities for some new blood to prove their mettle. This is very unlike my Jets, who seem ready to tank 2017 in the sake of the "Sam Darnold Sweepstakes" (I'm still predicting 8-8. Don't know how or why, it just resonates with my optimistic naivety or that I like old quarterbacks)
Speaking of which, I sure wish we had this fella below in "Green & White" rather than the hometown "Black & Gold", but that stupid thing known as "serendipity" had to happen:
Well with the way the Steelers have things in place this year, I think Conner still going to know what it's like to win. I'm sure he's not going to get a nipple ring ripped out anytime soon.
