The Steelers' players will have relatively spartan accommodations during training camp when they stay in the dormitories at St. Vincent College near Latrobe. Here is what a handful of players said when asked what is one thing they have to have at camp.

Hines Ward, wide receiver: a picture of his son. "It's something I keep by my bedside and kiss every morning when I wake up and go to practice. He's my motivation. I want him to grow up and say 'My dad was a great football player.' "

Ike Taylor, cornerback: a Bible and a Playstation. "I read the Bible every day. That's just something you've got to do."

Sean Mahan, center/guard: a TV: "I've got to have some outlet where I can think of something besides football. It's a little release because training camp is all day, nothing but football."

Max Starks, offensive tackle: a Bible. "It's one of those things to escape from the rigors of day-to-day training. We're blessed to be in this position, and when things go wrong or it gets tough out there you can always look to the Bible. It always gives you inspiration."

Nate Washington, wide receiver: a TV. "No I take that back, a computer. I have to have Internet. I love playing on the Internet, anything from e-mailing, MySpace, playing little games on the computer to YouTube."

It's interesting to see how the players keep themselves occupied when they aren't on the practice field.

I remember reading something about the Bears in camp last year and they had some interesting stuff that they did outside of practice

Just once ......just once I want to see a player give a real ....and honest ... non-politically correct answer to the media and say, "porn ... I need me some porn and plenty of it ... the more hardcore the better .... beyond that I need a small fridge of beer and a few bottles of Belvedere and Monkey Shoulder, PS-3 and I'm all set." :hilarious:

"were blessed to be in this position" if only every athelete could think like this!!! because when you think about it they are. they make millions and millions to play football! imo that is a very classy statment!

Max needs to find a verse in the bible that speaks of not getting "owned" in Pass-pro and not tripping on his own size 22 shoes! :lol:
