emmanuel sanders Steelers Rookie Emmanuel Sanders with Seibel and Starkey

Steelers Wide Receiver/Kick Returner Emmanuel Sanders sat down with Joe Starkey and discusses a number of topics, from the jersey number he wears, to last weeks game.  When asked about wearing Lynn Swann’s number 88, Emmanuel admitted that initially he didn’t know who Swann was, his Dad had to fill him in.  Emmanuel went back and watched video of Swann and said he sees some similarities in their games and hopes to do the number justice.

Joe also talked with Emmanuel about his returns last week which earned him the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week award.  Emmanuel described what went through his mind after fumbling the opening kickoff, and also how close he was to breaking his final return for a touchdown.
