If you’ve been reading anything into the comments by members of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offense recently then you’d be excused for thinking we may be running the wing-t or full house offense in 2012.
Of course you could also be excused if you think new offensive coordinator Todd Haley has brought in ‘run ‘n shoot’ guru Mouse Davis to run a pass-happy offense instead.
Here’s what we know about the 2012 Pittsburgh Steelers offensive style. Ummm, (scratches head) I guess we really don’t know now do we?
The fact that we hang on every word that comes out of the players’ mouths through OTAs is bad enough but then I think sometimes these guys just like toying with the fans and media. Ben Roethlisberger got his dig in last week when he said, “We’re going to run the ball more so it looks like the fans are getting what they wanted.”
Oh please Ben, not more dramatics. Save them for the season. If his comment about the fans was intended to be a dig at them then how would Todd Haley take that? My

Hopefully you checked out the videos I posted this morning in the Six Around The Web post of Pittsburgh Steelers defensive in Ziggy Hood, who is currently working out this off-season at Outer Limits Sports Performance in Pittsburgh. Hood, who has long been known as a workout warrior, is entering his fourth season in the league and quite a bit is expected out of him at left defensive...
Libby Kavoulakis, a Pittsburgh Steelers fan in the District of Columbia, can't seem to catch a break as she has had several Steelers banners stolen from outside her home dating back to 2006.
Despite all the thefts, Kaoulakis has continued to show her love for the Black and Gold by continuing to buy replacement banners to hang in place of the stolen ones, only to have them stolen...
In what is now becoming an annual rite of passage for him, former all-pro defensive tackle and current NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp is again taking shots at the Pittsburgh Steelers. I should probably stress the term ‘current’ is very loosely held these days with Sapp’s time at the NFL Network reportedly coming to an end but I think most of you know that already.
Joe Bendel of ESPN 970 had a great interview with cornerback Cortez Allen this past week that you need to make sure you listen to.
Veteran defensive end Brett Keisel also made time for an interview on 105 The X to talk about OTA sessions and changes on defense.
Steelers Defensive End takes a lot of heat for his performance in the Steelers defense. He gets compared to Aaron Smith and no one likes the fact that he does not put up the numbers that Smith put up. Hood is not Smith and nor will he ever be. Smith was the perfect 5 tech defensive end. He ate up blockers and still made his way to the QB. The man had an outstanding all...
The Steelers Monday OTA session consisted of a trip to Dave & Buster's for some gaming and steelers.com was there to capture it all and show just how competitive players are while not playing football.
Mark Kaboly reported via Twitter Tuesday morning that the Steelers will hold Thursday's 10th and final OTA session at Heinz Field.
The NFL announced on Monday that it...
Leonard Pope smiled, shook his head and rolled his eyes incredulously. Then he politely answered the question.
Pope was the only unrestricted free agent the Steelers signed in the offseason, and questions for the 6-foot-8 tight end keep coming back again and again to one subject.
Not the 102 receptions or nine touchdowns he has totaled in his six-year NFL career, and not his appearance...
Season 2, Episode 114 of The Terrible Podcast is up and David Todd and have a look at the Pittsburgh Steelers news as the head into their third and final OTA session this week. On Monday the team took a field trip to Dave & Buster's, so David and I move on to talk about Ziggy Hood and his off-season training regiment with Bill Nichol of Outer Limits Sports Performance that...
The Steelers spent first round picks in 2009 and 2011 on defensive ends for a reason. They knew that Aaron Smith and Brett Keisel wouldn’t be around forever and they had issues with depth at the position. Smith has since retired and there is an open spot at left end. Hood has spent much of his Continue
As of now it seems almost a certainty that Rashard Mendenhall will be placed on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list to begin the season making him ineligible for the first six games. Mendenhall is still recovering from a torn ACL suffered in week 15 of the 2011 season. It is unclear as of no Continue
Two years ago the Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl 45. However, we will be looking at a hypothetical situation go back to February of 2011 and imagine the Steelers defeated the Packers on route to their seventh Lombardi Trophy.
There is a good chance veterans James Fa Continue
Being part of the SteelerNation comes with a certain amount of responsibility to your brothers and sisters in Black ‘N Gold. Ok perhaps that’s a bit dramatic but there’s no denying that when tragedy strikes in one form or another as it relates to Steelers fans, those who own businesses that involve being part of the Steelers family, etc. the fans all across the country come...
Libby Kavowlakis, a woman who lives in the well-to-do Cleveland Park neighborhood of D.C., has had four Pittsburgh Steelers banners stolen from her home over the course of the past six years. After one of the banners was stolen in 2009, an anonymous person (read: the thief screwing with her) called Kavowlakis to tell her to meet up at a local Whole Foods, where she would get info...
Now that we at Steelers 101 have broken down the roster for the 50 position players that we feel will man the opening day roster for 2012, it is time to finish things off with the three specialists that will open the season for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Unlike the other roster spots, there should not be quite the OTA or training camp battle for these positions, although there is some...
In listening to reports, it is clear that Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley would like to get the tight ends more involved in the offense in 2012. That should be a welcomed sight for Steelers fans, who always wonder why tight end Heath Miller seems to disappear at times in the offense. The Steelers also have a talented stable of tight ends as we outlined in tight...
