Pittsburgh Steelers inside linebacker Lawrence Timmons was back home in Florence, South Carolina this past weekend for a family reunion and to throw out the first pitch for the Florence minor league baseball game on Saturday.
Timmons sat down with Lou Bezjak of SC Now for an interview to talk about a wide range of topics that included his thoughts on the new CBA, the week one match-up against the Denver Broncos and the Steelers upcoming training camp among other topics.
During the interview Timmons was asked who he considered the toughest quarterback to prepare for. "I would have to say Aaron Read more [...]

In this look back at the history of the Pittsburgh Steelers, we focus on late July and includes a torch being passed, a linebacker not working out in another city, a failed trade offer for a cornerback and snakes.
President Torch Quietly Passed From Dan To Art
In late July of 2003, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that Art Rooney II had replaced his father...
Turning our attention to the defense in our series of looking at the roster battles for the upcoming Steelers training camp, we’ll start with the Safety position. Before we get started though, big kudos to my writing partner Marc for some great stuff with the offense; I know I’m looking forward to seeing what he comes up with as we start on the defense now.
The current roster...
The Pittsburgh Steelers' young offensive line now has a veteran to lead it.
The Steelers re-signed tackle Max Starks to a one-year deal on Tuesday, hoping his surgically repaired knee is healed and his leadership can help one of the NFL's youngest lines provide better protection for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Terms were not disclosed, but Starks gives the Steelers...
Last year the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defensive age was a year older than any other seen post-2000. It was heard repeatedly that a team this old (2nd oldest overall) and more particularly a defense this old could not continue to produce at the level they had in previous years. However, lo and behold, the Steelers defense came [...]

Ron Jaworski recently finished his top 30 quarterback rankings in which Ben Roethlisberger was notched sixth, behind Eli Manning (5), Peyton Manning (4), Tom Brady (3), Drew Brees (2), and Aaron Rodgers. Jaworski’s comments about Roethlisberger were intriguing, especially when declared “[Ben is] on the cusp of becoming elite.”
On the cusp? Are you kidding me...
According to numerous sources including Max himself via Twitter, Steelers’ right tackle Max Starks has re-signed with the team and will be joingin them in Latrobe in eight days. This was the tweet sent out by Starks just recently;

Have no doubt about it, the Pittsburgh Steelers are still one of the premier teams in the NFL, but unfortunately that doesn’t always equate in the game of fantasy. Injuries and a resulting inconsistent offense has fans and fantasy owners alike hoping for more than the petty 20.3 points per game (tied for 21st) they put up in 2011.
Here are the guys in Pittsburgh that you should...
David Todd, my co-host on The Terrible Podcast, has been sitting in the last few weeks on 970 ESPN Radio for Joe Bendel. David has had me on his show twice over the last couple of weeks to talk about the Pittsburgh Steelers and I have received a few emails asking if these were recorded. The podcast are up now and you can listen to both of the interviews below from the last two weeks...
Green Bay's offensive success last season with Marshall Newhouse replacing venerable Chad Clifton at left tackle points to a larger league trend.
Greg Jennings is an all-pro wide receiver, a self made star and genuinely regarded good guy. That didn't stop him from making some particularly puzzling assertions which might escalate the Detroit Lions' budding rivalry with the Green Bay Packers, however.
Jennings recently wondered aloud if the Lions could keep their composure in the wake of a tumultuous offseason and...

GREEN BAY, Wis. Six months after John Kuhn was carted off the field with a knee injury in Green Bay's playoff loss to the New York Giants, the Packers' fullback is still not sure when he'll be fully cleared by team doctors.
Though Kuhn won't discuss specifics, he told FOXSportsWisconsin.com that he suffered a right knee injury in that game, one that he's "...
Our 90-to-1 list of the Packers' most important players breaks into the top five with Tramon Williams and Nick Perry. Combined, they give the Packers a chance to revitalize a downtrodden defense.
B.J. Coleman, a strong-armed seventh-round pick, is worried about himself more than competing with Graham Harrell for the No. 2 job behind Aaron Rodgers.
