In fact, they're showing him a whole lot of Pittsburgh love, grabbing some markers and telling Shazier they care.
"We want him to know that we're thinking of him," said Plum resident Sharon Lewis. "It will help his outlook knowing that people are thinking about him and love him and want him to do well."
Lewis was one of many who made a stop at the Visit Pittsburgh Welcome Pittsburgh Information Center and Gift Shop downtown to sign a giant get well card for Shazier.
That card is quickly filling up with well wishes for No. 50 from a city that has grown to love him as a player and a man.
"He's going to bounce back, Pittsburghers do that and he is one now so he can't help it," Betty Burtnett of the North Hills said.
The card will be at the welcome center through Jan. 5, so there's still time to sign it and then it will be delivered to the Steelers to give to Shazier.
