Happy Thursday everybody. The biggest story in sports right now is the Los Angeles Kings’ victory in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals, that’s all anybody is talking about. But can you break yourself away long enough to talk some fantasy football?
Steelers to run the ball more: Remember when the Steelers were a running team? That seems as antiquated as the duck-billed facemask Terry Bradshaw wore in the 1970s. But Ben Roethlisberger said the Steelers will likely run the ball more under new coordinator Todd Haley in a radio interview (via Sports Radio Interviews).
“I think so. … That’s the way it seems. We’ve got some good ball carriers. I know [Isaac Redman] is excited for the opportunity and I know the fans want it, so it looks like they’ll be getting their wish.”
This might be conjecture, but Roethlisberger doesn’t sound too crazy about his new coach. I currently have Roethlisberger as my No. 10 quarterback, but I’m starting to flirt with the idea of moving him down the list.
That leads to a programing note, the very early Like/dislike will be released this week. Keep an eye out for this.
Another Nicks injury update: Well it’s Thursday and now it’s Hakeem Nick’s turn to say he’s totally committed to returning for the season opener against the Cowboys. Again, I won’t doubt him, but we’ll keep you updated.
Running strong now: Injured Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is turning heads in OTAs by beating his teammates in foot races. Sure, it’s only straight-line races, but it’s encouraging he’s out there running at all.
