The Sports Jags:
The Steelers wrapped up their OTAs yesterday – not a whole lot to talk about there except the fact that Ben still loves Max Starks…but we‘ve been saying that for a while now. But now that OTAs are done and mini camp coming next week, it means a field trip to Latrobe is just around the corner. Training camp is supposed to start July 25 – that’s when everybody has to show up for work.
Even Mike Wallace…if we’re to believe Kevin Colbert from his interview with Pat Kirwan and Tim Ryan on Sirius Radio yesterday. We already knew that Wallace had swung by team headquarters to pick up Todd Haley’s new play book so we figured he’d eventually sign his tender, play this year, and then walk next year. That’s what made the most sense.
Apparently we’re just cynics because Colbert’s plan still remains to sign Wallace long-term even though no one has said anything about his asking price dropping below Calvin Johnson or Larry Fitzgerald numbers.
Either Colbert was just blowing smoke on national ra

Mike Wallace has yet to sign his tender, or a long-term contract with the team which fans would rather see. The rumors surrounding the situation have begin to grow and are starting to get out of hand. Rumors range from how much money Wallace wants, Wallace’s production, his abilities, statisti Continue
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...
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...
Steelers’ defensive lineman Evander “Ziggy” Hood has been working out with Outer Limits Sports during the offseason to get ready for the upcoming season. He has dropped his body fat percentage six points while in the process gaining two pounds. The most beneficial part of what Hood Continue
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...
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and his wife Ashley are expecting their first child later this year. According the Associated Press it will be a boy. Yes Big Ben will be big daddy.

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 [...]
Admittedly, Isaac Redman has a chip on his shoulder. The Steelers fourth-year running back, thrust into the spotlight with Rashard Mendenhall sidelined with a torn ACL thats unlikely to mend before the regular-season opener in Denver, is itching to prove he can carry the load for a remodeled offense. Ever since Ive been here, Ive been doubted by everybody e_SEmD except the...
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...
