Is it homage or is it want? It is likely both as Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was spotted wearing the No. 78 jersey by Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette today during the teams' final OTA session of the 2012 off-season Thursday at Heinz Field.
Of course that number belonged to his good friend and former teammate, Max Starks, who is currently a...
In 2011 the defense of the Pittsburgh Steelers was good, if not great, in several statistical categories as they led the league in pass defense and scoring defense. While the run defense finished eighth, a category defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau admits that he wants to lead the league in every year, the biggest improvement he would like to see his unit make in 2012 is in the turnover...
According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette today, the Pittsburgh Steelers are scheduled to report to Latrobe on July 25th for the start of the 2012 training camp. So 45 days and counting if you are scoring at home.
The arrival day of players to Latrobe usually means that we can expect a flurry of player interviews with the media prior to them hitting the field for...
Ziggy Hood made several starts last year in place of the injured Aaron Smith and graded out as ProFootballFocus’ worst 3-4 defensive end. However, Hood was a 1st round pick in 2009 and the Steelers still have a lot of hope for him as he is expected to take over full time for the now departed Smith in 2012.
In an effort to make good on his upside, Hood, who admits he was sluggish...

There are a few battles this offseason that excite me. While many of the rookies are just beginning to arrive, many positional battles are already being created. One of the more intriguing stories will be Ramon Foster. He did a very good job last year considering many had him pegged as a depth player. Where does he fit in with the 2012 Steelers and beyond...

It's another week in June, and in this edition of 'Steelers Rewind' we're going all out on tight ends. Happy Father's Day!
Tight ends 'tall' in Arians' new offense, but what happened to Jon Dekker and Cody Boyd?
It was June, 2007, and Bruce Arians had replaced Ken Whisenhunt as the Steelers' offensive coordinator. His...
Casey Hampton has held down the middle of the Steelers defense for a long time. His presence has made a huge impact on the Steelers defense and his ability to plug up any running holes is one of the key reasons for the teams’ success against the run.
It’s no secret, however, that Hampto Continue
A few months back Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley spent a portion of his offseason being the mastermind behind a fake photo shoot for fellow NFL players Marcedes Lewis, Michael Turner, and Steve Breaston. If you missed it you can watch the hilarity here. This time around Woodley was on the receiving end of some [...]
On Wednesday Todd Haley spoke to the media for the first time since being hired by the Pittsburgh Steelers to be their new offensive coordinator. The Steelers 2012 offense will have new terminology for the first time since 2001 when Mike Mularkey took over the offense. Haley made light of the rumors Continue
This shouldn’t come as shocking to anyone, but if last season proved anything for the Steelers, it proved that they stand absolutely no chance without Ben Roethlisberger. A hobbled Roethlisberger is a completely different player than he is when he’s mobile enough to escape pressure and move around the pocket.
The Steelers hope to protect Roethlisberger...
The offseason, the mini camps, it’s the time when Steeler fans cling to any tidbit of information they can get their hands on. The OTA’s give you just enough information to try and predict what may happen but things just don’t always work out how you think they will. You rehash the same news over and over, tweaking your analysis based on whatever updates you get as the days...
In a Friday morning interview with long-time sports talkshow host Dan Patrick, Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy said that he has no recollection the infamous concussion-inducing hit by Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison.
“I don’t remember the hit but I’ve seen it several times,” McCoy said. “I know the things that happened up to that point but from the...
