LATROBE, Pa. (AP) -- Jerricho Cotchery hears "the voice." Troy Polamalu senses the "phantom leadership."

It's all part of the Steelers Way.

Few organizations boast the stability and winning tradition of the Steelers. Try just three coaches in 43 years. Try the same family in charge -- the Rooneys. It's gone from the Chief, Art Rooney, to his son Dan, to his grandson, Art II, the current team president.

In the Super Bowl era, they have gone home with the Lombardi Trophy a record six times in eight appearances. If you want consistency on and off the field in the NFL, look at Pittsburgh.

Yet, there is a sense of transition in the Steel City this year.
