LeBeau intends on returning to Steelers in 2013
As usual, LeBeau credits the players for the defense’s success. That’s just one reason why they share such adulation for him.
‘‘He sets the tone,’’ Foote said. ‘‘He’s the reason. He always brings us guys together. He puts us in the right situation to make plays.’’
Notes: TE Heath Miller was named team MVP after a vote by the players. Miller, who has a team-high 71 receptions and is tied for the team lead with eight touchdowns, had surgery Thursday to repair multiple torn ligaments in his right knee. He is the first tight end to win the award. ... RT Mike Adams was named team rookie of the year and NT Casey Hampton was given the ‘‘Chief Award’’ for cooperation with the media.
