Ramon Foster, in his seventh season with the Steelers


The Broncos and Steelers face off in the AFC divisional round Sunday.

The on Monday suspended Burfict for three games of the 2016 season because of multiple issues with unsportsmanlike conduct.

Foster called the spitting uncommon and a “huge offense.” In a game that surpassed chippy and got dangerous because of heavy hitting from both teams, misconduct is not entirely unexpected. Tax tips are just one of Foster’s many specialties. The team’s NFL Players Association rep dispenses advice on everything from handling coach chew-outs to day-after-game rehab to labor rights. He’ll play big brother or good cop to tough coaches, “until you piss me off,” Foster said as he jokingly pointed to reserve guard B.J. Finney, motioning him to play well Sunday against Cleveland.

With about two minutes left in the Steelers’ 24-14 win last weekend, Giants linebacker appeared to reach under Bell’s facemask and pull backward during a gang tackle, twisting his neck. Being ready this Sunday includes being ready for anything Detroit defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh might offer up.

“I’ve seen a couple of games from previous years when Suh was playing,” Whimper said. “I’ve been studying him on tape this week. He is who he is. The after-the-whistle stuff, that’s different. We just have to have composure and not fall into that trap.” Foster said players around the league must be more prepared after many faced too much financial debt to potentially miss games nearly six years ago.


“They are sending shots or warnings. I don’t understand that,” Steelers guard Ramon Foster jersey mens said. “For a guy to be in that position and publicly put that out there, that’s just unnecessary.”

“He’s the quarterback, that’s something that we always plan to do,” Bell said. “He’s a leader on the offense, so we obviously want to follow him. I look at myself, guys following me, too. I want to take that title, too, of saying the same thing. Everybody should be having that same thought process. Nike New Pittsburgh Steelers Customized White Stitched Elite Youth NFL Jersey

“We’ve got some veteran guys, plus they have the best offensive line coach in the world in coach (Mike) Munchak,” said Roethlisberger. “They’ll continue to get better and believe and trust in each other. That is what is special about that room. They are all so close and believe in each other. We never want any of those guys up front to get hurt. They are the cogs in the wheel for us. Unfortunately it’s going to happen because of the game we play, but we have other guys that will be ready to step up.”

The offensive line will have to be strong this week as they will face a Jets defensive front that has 12 sacks on the season, including seven in an opening week loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

“Go Patriots,” said Foster. “Tonight. We are AFC North. I have no beef with the Patriots tonight. Tonight.” And there was no mistaking it. Ramon Foster really did say it.

Okay, so no need to panic. He is on the Patriots bandwagon for one game, and one game only and that is tonight when the Patriots host the Baltimore Ravens in a matchup that means a lot to the Steelers.

The Steelers are 8-5 and in sole possession of first place in the AFC North as of right now. A loss by the Ravens tonight would drop the Ravens to 7-6, and give the Steelers the edge in the AFC North race with three games remaining. A win by the Ravens puts both teams at 8-5, but the Ravens beat the Steelers earlier this season and would hold the edge. The Steelers have lost their last three games and want nothing more than to turn things around this Sunday when the Dallas Cowboys come to Heinz Field.

The Ravens beat the Steelers again on Nov. 6 for their fourth consecutive win and sixth in the last seven meetings in the series.

“Winning is difficult, but it’s something we are accustomed to doing and we have to get back to doing,” said Mitchell. “I think we are doing all of the right things. It’s not like we aren’t preparing or putting in the proper amount of time. We are just not getting the results we want and that is why everyone is disappointed.”

It didn’t surprise me at all, because that is the type of person he is. And that is also the reason the Pittsburgh Chapter of the Pro Football Writers of America selected Foster as this year’s winner of “The Chief Award.” The award was established in honor of Steelers’ founder Arthur J. Rooney, Sr. and presented annually to the member of the Steelers’ organization who best exemplifies the spirit of cooperation with the media that Rooney did.

Foster, in his seventh season with the Steelers, has become a member of the media himself in a way. He has written pieces for steelers.com this year, and also has a regular segment on 93.7 The Fan radio station in Pittsburgh. It’s something he has said he would like to do after football, and is getting a start on it now and it’s helped him understand how important talking to the media is.

It’s the sixth year the Steelers have gone to Mexico for the fan camps, and it’s something the players enjoy every time.

“What an awesome event the Steelers hosted out here in Mexico, showing the love and passion to our fans to let them know how we appreciate them,” said Carter. “Going out on the field and running around with them, showing them some drills, and showing them that we appreciate Steelers Nation and that they are best fans in the world.
