i havent seen any other teams rookies show up for a tour. not even the bungs or browns. if walking past 6 lombardis, and then viewing all the steelers in the hall doesnt inspire these rookies to be great, i dont know what will.

good job FO.

They should definitely take them. Probably their best chance to ever be in it. :D

I dont know if its motivation, as much of appreciation of the Steelers legacy and the organization that drafted you. I mean, if I was a rookie, I would feel fortunate to be part of such a storied franchise and conduct myself in a way that would make the likes of Joe Greene, Franco Harris, Jack Ham, John Stallworth, etc. proud.

On the other hand, if the Bengals drafted me, I would be looking for ho's, crack, weapons and an orange jumpsuit to live up to that legacy.

Its pretty cool that we take our rooks to the HoF. Like El-Gonzo said, help them get an appreciation for the game.

You know its a shame, I have lived about 45 minutes from the HoF my entire life and still have never been inside it. I've been in Fawcett Stadium (where they play the HoF game) a few times but never in the hall.

I guess they are hoping to make it in one day thereselves but out of the bunch I would say Pouncey would have the best shot.

I can't read the tweet here, but is this different then the league meeting with all the rookies about "the conduct policy", etc.?

It's a good idea either way.

That's an awesome appreciation idea and motivation for these guys. I wonder who started that/whose idea it was? Tomlin? Rooney? That is really interesting!
