It started with former defensive end Ray Seals and his "60-Minute Men" T-shirts in 1994 and continued with Joey Porter's "Big Nasty D" T-shirts earlier this century.

Today, the Steelers sport a new T-shirt that reads simply "Use Me." They wore them during warmups Sunday in Cincinnati and, yes, there is a story behind it, according to defensive end Brett Keisel.

"We were in meetings once, and coach said, 'Arnold Harrison!' And Arnold said, 'Use me!' It kind of started from that.''

And its meaning?

"It means all of us are accountable and all of us in here want to be on the field," Keisel explained. "If you're on the field, then you have an expectation level you need to play to. That's what it means. When you're out there, you're part of the group and you're being useful."

Apparently, a player did not come up with the T-shirt idea in line with Seals and Porter.

"I think coach did," Keisel said of Mike Tomlin. "It wasn't any of us."

That's a great attitude to carry, being accountable for an expected level of play on the field, it's no wonder these guys seem to really like coach Tomlin !

I love what that T-shirt means! An attitude that's been missing from this Steeler team for awhile. I love Tomlins attitude and the attitude he brings to our boys!!! :tt02:

I love that it started with a player and the coach found it worthy to symbolize the spirit of the team.
