Personally I think the Steelers should make their ASSET protect himself within logical reason off of the field.

I was annoyed at the coverage given the story all day long up here in Erie. You'd think he was somebody important or something.

Anyway, the qualities that make him a great football player may influence his personal life. Risk-taking, in-your-face devil-may-care (shoot, ran out of hyphens) activities go with the territory. He's not the type to drive his sedate Buick to a quiet afternoon at the library.

If we can mandate seat belts, we can mandate helmets. Some CNN guy said (so it must be true) that half of helmet-less motorcycle riders incurring head injuries are without health insurance, so the taxpayer picks up the bills that often run into hundreds of thousands of dollars for severe head injuries. That trumps the sacrifice of wind in your hair for me.
