Found August 01, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
While it seems like no one knows when Steelers tight end Heath Miller will be activated from the PUP lost, but Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says he won’t be activated for at least another few weeks. Heath Miller has yet to be removed from the physically unable to perform list and likely won’t be for at least a few more weeks. However, that hasn’t stopped the injured tight end from working out feverishly on Field 3 during practice. Miller was running nearly the length of the field dragging a heavy weight attached to a long strap, and he looked strong doing it. I’m not sure how much the Steelers will be able to rely on Miller this season.  I think he’ll play, but he won’t make the impact he’s made in the past.   Need NFL Tickets? Loading...

Pittsburgh Steelers: A look at the defensive line

  Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel (photo credit: brettkeisel.com) I’m going to just come right out and say it, the defensive line of the Pittsburgh Steelers is the weakest part of the whole team. It is plagued with underachieving players along with lack of depth and is just completely overrated. The Steelers base defense includes having only three defensive lineman...

NFL Pro Bowl 2.0: Will It Work?

Growing up in Hawaii I was fortunate enough to have yearly tickets to the NFL  Pro Bowl. From 1991 (I was 5 years old) until 2012 (just before I moved to Arizona), I missed a total of three Pro Bowl games. Two of those were due to illness, while the other saw me on a business trip. Needless to say, the Pro Bowl has been the one way for Hawaii’s NFL fans to see their favorite players...

Heading to the Dark Side; Pittsburgh Steelers will Implement Cut Blocking on Offense
