Tyler Grisham is still a Steeler, you know.

We have surpassed the first $500 raised for Genre’s Kids With Cancer. As soon as I get home, I’ll post the picture of Awkward Mulleteen!



With Mike Wallace and Emmanuel Sanders on the sidelines with injuries, Ben Roethlisberger needed another target during the two-minute drill in practice on Tuesday.

And he found one in a player most fans don’t think of immediately when they think of the team’s wide receivers – second-year guy Tyler Grisham.

Roethlisberger went deep to Grisham for the only touchdown in the drill.

“When everyone is down we have to throw to somebody,” said Roethlisberger. “He made a good play out there.”  Grisham has quietly become a steady performer, someone who can play just about any role in the passing game and has solid hands.

Oh, how long have I been going on about Tyler Freaking Grisham?!

“I think he is doing big things,” said Roethlisberger. “He learns the offense. You have to give him credit because he moves around to about four or five positions. He makes one mistake a day, but he is playing 30 different positions. You have to respect that.

Dear Duke, step off.

He’s mine.

P.S. If you think Tyler has nice arm muscles, you should donate $5 to Genre’s Kids With Cancer. Yes, that correlates. Shut up. IT’S FOR SICK KIDS.

    Bram, that is so spot on. Someone needs to photoshop that.

    His body is slammin’, but he really needs to do something about that hair. It’s like early Justin Timberlake.

    He is a kind person and not too bad on the eyes. We love him for his sweet spirit and goodness. Wish he could play more football maybe next year.
