Reed, who just wrapped up coaching at a kicking camp this past week at Queens University in Charlotte, said Thursday that he trains every morning for about two and half hours starting at 6:00 a.m. and kicks religiously on Sundays at 1:00 p.m. to simulate game times.

Troy Polamalu Top Rated Steelers Player Again In Top 100 Players Of 2012

The Top 100 Players of 2012 rolled on last night as players 11-20 were revealed. I am not a big fan of these list as I question their legitimacy for the most part.

Having said that… Will the real...

Hritz: 2012 Steelers Season Prediction # 2: Post Draft, OTAs, & Mini-Camp Edition

By Jeremy Hritz Back on April 23, I posted my first edition of the Pittsburgh Steelers season prediction prior to the NFL Draft, noting that I would update it multiple times leading up to the season. This is the second version of the season prediction, and it takes into account the draft, OTAs, and mini-camp. In the first edition, I had the Steelers finishing the season 11-5 and...

Looking At The Steelers Main Competitors For The AFC North Crown (Part 1)

By Cian Fahey After active off-seasons for each of the four AFC North teams, the Pittsburgh Steelers appear to be in good position to compete for another crown to add to the collection. What is less clear however, is which team the Steelers will need to overcome, or if there will be more than two competitors for the division this year.

Steelers offense: Early struggles or early success?

What is the actual expectation of Haley and the offense? What if the Steelers lose the first few games? What if the losses are high scoring games in the 30′s, but the defense gives it away?

Heath Miller Should be Targeted More in 2012
