Training camp has started in Latrobe, and one thing is absent besides Michael Vick. That's the Lombardi Trophy and all things associated with the Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl victory six months ago. Mike Tomlin has not displayed the Lombardi as some teams do, and has put an end to the team's celebration in hopes of not having a terrible post-Super Bowl season as did the '06-'07  Steelers.

Their complete focus is on football, as made clear by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger when asked about his lawsuit.

"I'm playing football," said Roethlisberger. "It's what I love being out here doing."

Roethlisberger didn't talk about his civil suit to the media. However, during a closed door meeting with his teammates and coaches, he apologized for all of the attention the lawsuit has given the team and organization.

"He apologized. we went on about it. We went to the next phase of our meeting," wide receiver Hines Ward said. "It wasn't a long speech or anything; he just apologized for the media attention that was brought upon this team and this organization. We moved on and think everything will be handled accordingly."
