Question marks abound in Pittsburgh's 2012 training camp.
One of the more unstable offseasons in the history of the perenially-stable franchise leaves the Steelers with a new offensive coordinator, a Pro Bowl holdout, a shuffled offensive line, and without their longtime captain on defense.
Pittsburgh has a very high ceiling once again in 2012, but any combination of bad breaks could leave the Steelers as a mediocre team.
If everything begins to fall into place, there is no reason the Steelers shouldn't compete for the Super Bowl this season.
Mike Wallace signs a long-term deal and comes into training camp. This speeds up the learning process for Ben Roethlisberger and the rest of Pittsburgh's offense under new offensive coordinator Todd Haley.
Roethlisberger becomes comfortable under the new system, and it shows through his play as Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown further cement themselves as one of the top receiving duos in the league and He...

I wrote earlier today about the mystery that surrounds Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker Jason Worilds and wondered if that mystery would get any clarity any time soon. Thanks now to Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review this afternoon, we have a little more information concerning the Steelers third year linebacker.
Robinson reported via Twitter today that Steelers...
Our first look at Willie Colon at left guard was delayed last week because of an ankle injury, but this Sunday night when the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Indianapolis Colts in the second preseason game, Colon will finally start at his new position.
The Colon move from right tackle was made immediately following the draft so the Steelers former 4th round pick has now had an...
The Steelers must be getting desperate for RB depth as they have surprisingly activated Rashard Mendenhall from the PUP list. Mendenhall suffered the injury in week 16 last season and his expected absence had Isaac Redman climbing draft boards. Redman suffered a groin injury in training camp that was labeled as minor but regardless his fantasy draft stock takes a hit with Mendenhall...
Ed Bouchetee of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports via twitter that Pittsburgh Steelers running back Isaac Redman will undergo an MRI on his injured groin.
Redman, a third year back from Bowie State college, is listed as the starting running back for the Steelers while Rashard Mendenhall recovers from a severe knee injury suffered at the end of last season.
The groin injury has...
The Steelers are looking at a potential dilemma to work through when the season starts next month. Who is going to play on the outside opposite Lamarr Woodley? Normally this one is a no brainer, it’s James Harrison, but right now it’s unclear if he’ll be ready to go. To that, if he is ready, can he play the entire game and be effective in the first couple weeks of the season...
To the surprise of many, the Pittsburgh Steelers activated running back Rashard Mendenhall from the PUP list on Friday. Mendenhall suffered a torn ACL in his right knee in the final week of 2011, and was thought to be out for most of the 2012 season.
At just eight months removed from a serious knee injury, it seemed unlikely that the former Illinois star would be able to help the...
The end of training camp for the Pittsburgh Steelers is near with just one more practice that is open to the public remaining on Friday. With co-host David Todd in Oregon tonight and most of the Pittsburgh media worn out, you once again get me flying solo. Hurray!
I go through all of the news and notes from the Thursday practice and spend more time talking about both James Harrison...
Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall and nose tackle Casey Hampton were activated from the physically unable to perform list. Mendenhall underwent knee surgery in January after being injured in the regular-season finale. While he can resume practicing, Mendenhall has been expected to miss about the first six weeks of the regular season. However, being activated from the PUP...
Steelers halfback Isaac Redman exited practice Wednesday because of a sore hip. Redman has also been struggling with an injured groin.Fantasy Spin:With Rashard Mendenhall banged up as well, the Pittsburgh running back situation is one that should be avoided heading into the 2012 fantasy season.
According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Steelers running back Issac Redman is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his injured groin.

With Jonathan Dwyer banged up and Rashard Mendenhall not even close to comng back, the Steelers running game is in bad shape.
Terrible Towel knockoffs? That's just...terrible.
The NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers and the Allegheny Valley School have filed suit against Nick Rossi, of Ligonier, claiming that Rossi violated the trademark on the well-known "Terrible Towel". The towel, which was created by the late Steelers broadcaster Myron Cope, was trademarked sometime ago, with the trademark...
