Reporting Larry Richert
PITTSBURGH (NEWSRADIO 1020 KDKA) — The Steelers may not be in this year’s Super Bowl, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot happening behind the scenes for the Black and Gold.
KDKA AM’s Larry Richert and John Shumway talked to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Ed Bouchette, who is in Indianapolis with the latest from Super Bowl XLVII.
While Sunday will be all about the New York Giants and the New England Patriots, Bouchette believes Saturday could be a big day for Pittsburgh. That’s when the Pro Football Hall Of Fame Class of 2012 will be announced.
“It really is a heavy Pittsburgh flavor, and I think we’re going to see two, maybe three of those guys make it into the Hall Of Fame,” said Bouchette. “Jack Butler’s going to make it, I think Dermontti Dawson has moved to the top of the class as maybe the prime candidate in this class; I think he’s going to make it. I think Curtis Martin has a shot. Certainly, Jerome Bettis has a shot. This is Kevin Greene’s first time so that will be interesting to see the reaction cause we debate everything back and forth, we discuss it all.”
As for Sunday’s game, Bouchette says he likes the Giants. He says they are a more balanced team and are playing better defense.
