The annual night practice in Latrobe is always fun but tonight it's going to be even more special as all those big names will be in attendance to officially retire as Pittsburgh Steelers. Ed Bouchette tweeted it out this afternoon.

Who Ride....WE RIDE!!!

Objectively speaking, is Joey Porter a Hall of Famer? This question popped in my head last night. I believe he gets in later on down the road. What are your thoughts?

He's definitely not a first ballot HOF candidate but he could get in after a few tries when he's eligible.

Career stats:

Started in 170 out of 180 games.
98 Sacks
12 Interceptions
503 career tackles
1 Safety
