• With the signing of Pitt superstar running back James Conner, I can now lean on “Big Ed” with the full weight of my sports I.Q. Conner inked a four year deal and with it will now become your Pittsburgh Steeler third down back and more. You can take it to the bank! (Ya’ll know “Big Ed” over at Ace in Wilkinsburg, he played the game over at Perry back in the day.)
