There’s the game-week practice that had to be cut short because the Panthers players were hungover, the punter who broke a cinder block with his hand, and Dave Wannstedt admitting it might not have been wise to keep passing on a windy day with LeSean McCoy as his running back. Said one Pitt player: “I just remember how fragrant Michael Irvin was.” Wait. What? [Post-Gazette]
