    Let me say something that should have every steelers fan both concerned and borderline apoplectic with the organization. I heard a rumor, Just a rumor, that the reason Boykin didn’t play is because the Steelers don’t want to play hm up,to,and past the point where they owe Philly a third round in lieu of a fourth round. I PRAY TO GOD THAT THAT THIS ISNT TRUE!! If it so, everyone in the steelers front office should just be up and fired on the spot! Just fire them! This means more to me, as it should for every steelers fan, than wining or losing on Sunday’s. Because this has real conspiratorial innuendoes that point to the steelers brass being more concerned with draft picks than players currently on their roster. For the love of God someone please tell me that this is not true. I only wonder, however, why no one said why Boykin DIDNT play! He not injured! So it makes me wonder if these rumors are founded somewhat in truth. It’s hard enough to stomach the NFL these days with the Pats and their holier than now, untouchable approach, the commissioner fellating on them, all the hypocrisy around rules, and ad infinitum,now, it may come to pass that my steelers are just as guilty because they won’t play someone who might cost them a higher draft pick of they do. Give me a break, man!
