Three Burning Questions
Since the Super Bowl, the Steelers have faced a lot of off-the-field issues. Is this something to worry about?
The Steelers have had more than their fair share of issues since they hoisted the trophy in Detroit. Like all Super Bowl winners, they dealt with the hype of visiting the White House, getting their rings, parading through downtown, having teams try to lure away their coaches, having their roster purged in free agency and selecting last in the NFL draft. What they couldn't have counted on was the fuss made by Joey Porter over his contract, Bill Cowher's public statement that he will take his coaching career one year at a time, first-round pick Santonio Holmes' troubles with the law and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's motorcycle accident. All these situations certainly will make winning a second consecutive title more difficult.
