Found January 15, 2013 on Steelers Depot:
On Monday I posted about the injuries that Pittsburgh Steelers suffered in 2012 in relation to the comments team president Art Rooney II made to the Pittsburgh media last week during his end of the season talks. In that post I touched briefly on offseason conditioning program that cornerback Ike Taylor goes through under the watchful eye of renown trainer Tom Shaw. Taylor has worked with Shaw for several offseasons down at the Wide World of Sports complex in Florida and always shows up to training camp in great shape. It should also be noted that Taylor played 135 consecutive games before unfortunately Read more [...]

Bad Luck Or Bad Conditioning? Art Rooney II Says He Will Look Into It As It Relates To Injuries

Some new quotes have emerged from the year-end talk that Pittsburgh Steelers team president Art Rooney II had with members of the Pittsburgh media last week concerning injuries suffered this past season and training. “I do think it’s something that comes in cycles,” said Rooney about injuries, per the Steelers official website. “I remember sitting there a few years ago and...

Steelers Need ‘Best Player Available’

While four teams remain in the NFL Playoffs, I’m already interested in where the Pittsburgh Steelers are going in terms of the 2013 season. Last night, my partner-in-crime and I were very excited to be joined by Shane Hallam of www.draftcountdown.com to help us breakdown some possible directions the Steelers might go during the NFL Draft in April. Shane did an excellent job of...

The Steelers Could Find Their Next James Farrior from Inside the AFC North

In 2002 the New York Jets decided to let James Farrior walk in free agency. Farrior was drafted by the Jets in the first round of the 1997 draft, but was considered a just after five seasons with the team. The Steelers rarely go after free agents unless the player and price is right. They signed Farrior in 2002 and he was the team’s defensive leader for 10 seasons. Farrior led...

Steelers 2013 Draft: Trading Back may be Best Option

If there is one thing that most draft experts can agree on it’s that the 2013 NFL draft is deep in terms of quality players. What can also be agreed on is that the top of the first round lacks the big time talent that is typically associated with the NFL draft. In fact, the draft is deep in second round talent more than anything. Therefore, the Steelers best bet for the draft may...

Several teams are now just a few weeks into their offseason and there are still a few head-coaching spots left to be filled in addition.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Todd Haley, Omar Khan and LaMarr Woodley’s Training Regimen

The Pittsburgh Steelers have multiple people in the headlines right now, but LaMarr Woodley is getting more talk than anyone on the team. Woodley’s conditioning has been in question due to his injury issues and poor performance during the past two seasons. Todd Haley, the Steelers offensive coordinator, is also in the news as he is a candidate for the Arizona Cardinals head coaching...

Please Don’t Ask Why the Steelers Aren’t More Active in Free Agency

We aren’t even there yet but I feel a pre-emptive strike is necessary for those fans who will inevitably say, “Why aren’t we signing player x or player z in free agency?” The free agency period for the 2013 season will not open up until March but already I’m seeing the comments about what the Steelers may do in free agency. This is exactly what they will do, very little...

Kelvin Beachum Could be Steelers Left Guard In 2013 and Beyond

The Steelers are building a younger and more athletic offensive line in front of Ben Roethlisberger and the 2012 draft may account for three starters in 2013. First round pick David DeCastro is the Steelers right guard of the future and second round pick Mike Adams will start at tackle in 2013. Adams, who will be entering his second NFL season, will play left or right tackle in...

Steelers Sign CB Justin King To A Reserve/Future Contract

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed cornerback Justin King to a reserve/futures contract on Wednesday, according to Bob Labriola on Twitter.

Not All Pittsburgh Steelers Fans Are Rooting Against the Ravens in the 2012 AFC Championship Game

This is an unpopular opinion that might cost me my seat at the cool-kids table among Pittsburgh Steelers fans. I want the Ravens to beat the Patriots Sunday. The Ravens and Patriots meet in the AFC Championship Game for the second year in a row. It’s the first time the same teams have met in the AFC title game for two straight seasons since the Browns and Broncos in 1986 and 1987...

Pittsburgh Steelers 2013 Needs

Have we overrated Ben Roethlisberger just a bit? In 9 seasons as a starter, he’s had a top-3 scoring defense on his side 6 times. In the 3 years he hasn’t, he’s missed the playoffs, including this year. They weren’t bad or anything this year, allowing 19.6 points per game, 6th in the NFL, including the fewest yards of any team in the NFL. The offense was more of the problem...
