In the football world, wearing the black and gold can be compared to garnering a badge of honor. An honor free agent running back Mewelde Moore proudly holds in high regard as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Other than having the privilege to play for the Steelers and having a successful career in the NFL, Moore appreciates another opportunity, which is far more important than playing football at the highest level in the world – being hands on impacting the lives of children.
In 2007, Moore established, “The Mewelde Moore Knowledge First Foundation.” The Louisiana native is passionate about influencing the lives of young men between the ages of 10 and 18 in the Baton Rouge area and inspires to expand his foundation abroad. The Foundation’s mission is to provide resources to achieve success in education, life and sports.
“Our mission is to be able to provide opportunities for our youth through sports and education,” said Moore via phone conversation last February. “We ty...

The 2012 NFL combine is now in the books and I have gone back to do some additional tape study and reading in preparation for this, my second Pittsburgh Steelers mock draft of the offseason. Mock draft 1.0, which was done right after the Senior Bowl, can be read by following the link. I usually end up doing about 5 or 6 mocks leading up to the draft, so there are quite a few more...
IT'S A FAKE
A Pittsburgh TV station fell for a fake story, reporting on-air that Hines Ward had signed with one of the Steelers' rivals.
When Ben Roethlisberger took over two games into his rookie season the Pittsburgh Steelers they had little concern in terms of offensive leadership, even with a rookie quarterback. In front of Roethlisberger were All-pro linemen Jeff Hartings and Alan Faneca, behind him, at times, was Jerome Bettis, Continue
With so many restructures already in the books for the Steelers, along with all the recent cuts, there’s a solid case for keeping NT Casey Hampton on the team in 2012. “He’s recovering from ACL surgery” you say? Yes indeed he is, but even given that situation, Hampton could still contribute to the team in 2012.
One of Hampton’s best friends and long time teammate Chris...
It became official at 4 pm today. Mike Wallace will receive a first round tender but will not be franchised. The Steelers did not have the money for it. This is what has been expected all a long. The Steelers will give Wallace $2.7 million this season. He will be an unrestricted free agent next season if no long term deal is reached.
The Steelers are now vulnerable to another...
Pittsburgh Steelers Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger recently turned 30 years old. After eight seasons in the National Football League, Roethlisberger has led the Steelers to three Super Bowl appearances and two victories. This would be considered a pretty darn good resume by most experts and would be taken in a heartbeat by the vast majority of signal-callers in NFL history.
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, during the 6am morning news on Wednesday, WPXI-TV morning anchor Todd McDermott reported that Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Hines Ward had signed with the Baltimore Ravens.
“We’re a little in shock,” Mr. McDermott said to co-anchor Jennifer Abney per the Post-Gazette.
What’s really funny is that Ward hasn’t even been officially released...
The Steelers, as was expected, decided against using the franchise tag on any of their 2012 free agents. Wide receiver Mike Wallace will be tendered with the highest possible contract. Starting next week Wallace will have the option of negotiating with any team of his choosing.

The 4pm witching hour came and went in Pittsburgh with no franchise tag for Mike Wallace. Something that nobody expected to happen anyway given the cap situation of the team. Kevin Colbert spoke today according to Steelers insider Ed Bouchette and talked about Wallace, the Steelers cap situation, and the possibility of any more player cuts on the horizon this offseason.
The 6 o’clock morning news at WPXI-TV in Pittsburgh found itself in an embarrassing situation Wednesday morning after it erroneously reported as fact a satirical story by BroCouncil.com saying that beloved former Steelers receiver Hines Ward signed with the bitter divisional-rival Ravens. Here’s news anchor Todd McDermott first mentioning the “report” in passing as the broadcast...

The Pittsburgh Steelers did not place the franchise tag on WR Mike Wallace yesterday at the league imposed deadline, instead using a first-round tender. With two first-round draft picks in next month’s draft, the Cleveland Browns should consider using the number 22 pick and acquire WR Mike Wallace.
At this time of the year, lying by front offices of NFL franchises...

It was 2001. The Pittsburgh Steelers had drafted two wide receivers in the first round the previous two years (Troy Edwards and Plaxico Burress). The Steelers were targeting defensive linemen, and for the first time since 1990, they ended up doing something they very seldom ever do; trading down. The result was that the man they wanted - Marcus Stroud out...
Mike Prisuta points out that the latest moves by the Steelers were inevitable and proactive at the same time. Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert quotes included.
