James Conner was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week on Wednesday for his efforts against the Cleveland Browns in Week 8.Conner rushed for 146 yards and 2 touchdowns from 24 carries on the day and added another 66 yards from 5 receptions. Not only was it his highest single game rushing total of the season Pittsburgh Steelers Hoodie , it was also his second best ever receiving total and the first time he recorded more than 200 scrimmage yards in a single game in his career. Having scored two touchdowns in each of his last three games, Conner has set a new record in Pittsburgh, achieving a feat the great Steelers running backs like Franco Harris and Jerome Bettis never managed to do. The Pittsburgh running back becomes the third Steelers player to win a weekly award in 2018. T.J. Watt has won defensive player of weeks honors twice this season, once in Week 1 and again in Week 5, while Ben Roethlisberger won the offensive award in Week 3. Much like they are for Watt, the Browns must already be Conner’s favorite team to play.Currently third in the NFL in rushing with 599-yards, Conner only sits behind Todd Gurley of the Los Angeles Rams (800) and Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys (619). He is also second in the league with nine rushing touchdowns behind Gurley (11). If he can maintain this pace throughout the remainder of the season, Conner would eclipse Le’Veon Bell’s career best rushing total with the Steelers of 1,361 yards. A group of Pro Football Hall of Famers led by Eric Dickerson is demanding health insurance coverage and a share of NFL revenues or else those former players will boycott the induction ceremonies.In a letter sent to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith and Hall of Fame President David Baker — and obtained by The Associated Press — 21 Hall of Fame members cited themselves as "integral to the creation of the modern NFL, which in 2017 generated $14 billion in revenue."Among the signees were Dickerson, who is listed as chairman of the newly created Hall of Fame Board the group has formed; Jim Brown; Joe Namath; Lawrence Taylor; and Sarah White, the widow of Reggie White.There were questions Customized Pittsburgh Steelers Jerseys , though, about how well-organized the group was. Two players whose names are on the letter said they were not part of the boycott effort. Another name on the list of 22 signees including Sarah White was Carl Ellard, but no one by that name has played professional football. Former Vikings defensive end Carl Eller, however, is a Hall of Famer."The time has come for us to be treated as part of a game we've given so much to," the letter states. "Until our demands are met, the Hall of Famers will not attend the annual induction ceremony in Canton.
It's well known that the NFL is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2020, and while we are proud of our role in building this league, we don't believe 100 years of player exploitation is something to celebrate."The strongly worded letter called out the league for paying Goodell $40 million, saying "there are better uses for that money." It also criticized Smith for his salary and the lack of a former player on the players' association executive board. But there have been two former players on that executive board since 2009.Jerry Rice, whose name is on the letter, said he wasn't on the Hall of Fame Board. And in a statement on Twitter , the former wide receiver said he plans to support the Hall of Fame and "looks forward to attending the 100th anniversary in 2020."Kurt Warner also released a statement on Twitter that said he wasn't made aware of the letter and said his name was mistakenly put on it. He said he supports the efforts for better benefits for all retired players and doesn't believe in boycotting the Hall of Fame.Baker said the Hall seeks to help all players www.steelersauthorizedshops.com , not just those enshrined in Canton, Ohio."Many Hall of Famers have reached out to express their support of the Hall," he said in a statement."While we enshrine Hall of Famers, our mission is to serve every player who helped build this great game. We guard the legacies and seek to serve all players and not just Hall of Famers who we serve every day."NFL players have received a pension since the Bert Bell Plan, named after a former league commissioner, was created in 1959. In the 1993 collective bargaining agreement, a 401K plan to which players also could contribute was established, and in 1998 an annuity program was created."There have been significant increases in the pension with every collective bargaining agreement in the history of this sport," said Miki Yaras-Davis, the NFLPA's senior director of benefits."The normal retirement age is 55 for former players, and those players can leave in their pension (funds) and at 65 they have almost a 300 percent increase. This is one of the few defined benefit plans left in the country. It's a program which isn't seen much anymore that defines the benefits at a certain age."During the 2011 labor dispute and lockout, one of the main issues was establishing a fund for pre-1993 players. In that CBA, a "Legacy Fund" was established Pittsburgh Steelers Womens T-Shirt , with a $620 million increase in benefits, with team owners contributing out of their share of revenues for the first time. The union and the league have increased pensions three times for former players since 2011.But the letter calls the Legacy Fund "little more than cynical public relations ploys that fail to help those who desperately need it.""The total cost for every Hall of Famer to have health insurance is less than $4 million — less than that of a 30-second Super Bowl ad, or about 3 cents for every $100 the league generates in revenue," Dickerson's letter states."Paying Hall of Famers an annual salary works out to about 40 cents for every $100 in annual revenue, a figure that will increase dramatically in the near future with legalized gambling."The disgruntled former players also took aim at the expansion of the Hall of Fame into a village that Baker has estimated will eventually cost $1 billion. The NFL provides significant funding for the hall, but equally significant costs for the project are funded elsewhere.Also, the Hall of Fame village plans a player care center called Legend's Landing that provides independent and assisted living for retired Hall of Famers as well as "members of the NFL's legends community, along with coaches, officials and administrators," according to the Hall of Fame's website. A health care center also is part of the expansion.The letter's demands cover the 318 members of the Hall of Fame, but it says it hopes to create "a template for active players in the next round of (labor) negotiations." Those talks would come in 2021 when the current CBA expires.Other Hall of Famers listed on the letter are:Marcus Allen, Mel Blount, Derrick Brooks Pittsburgh Steelers Hats , Earl Campbell, Richard Dent, Marshall Faulk, Mike Haynes, Rickey Jackson, Ronnie Lott, Curtis Martin, John Randle, Deion Sanders, Bruce Smith and Jackie Smith.
