A lot of experts are calling this season for the Pittsburgh Steelers a ‘transition’ year and they may be right in the end, but after cut-down day yesterday the real transition may be in the approach on offense. With the Steelers choosing to keep just four wide receivers and four tight ends on the active roster, I think the following conclusions can be drawn;
Despite not playing a down in the preseason, Mike Wallace will not only play next Sunday in Denver but he will start and he will contribute. I don’t believe conditioning will be a factor for him as he is in excellent physical condition, but in terms of ‘game speed’ that could take a few series for him to get going.
The Steelers did not feel like anyone acquitted themselves strongly enough to warrant a spot on the roster as the 5th wideout. Toney Clemons, David Gilreath and Derrick Williams seemed to have the inside tracks but with depth issues elsewhere on the team, they were deemed expendable.
Keeping four tight ends (Miller,P...

Going into the 2010 NFL Draft, Jonathan Dwyer was one of the hottest names floating around in dynasty circles.

Final cutdowns for all NFL teams were due by 9pm EST on Friday. The Steelers spent the day going over all the possibilities before announcing their cuts this afternoon. Among the interesting moves, they will go with 4 WR's and 3 QB's. There was wide speculation that they may go with 5 receivers but David Gilreath, Derrick Williams and the others were all cut today.
For a game that had absolutely no meaning, last night’s preseason finale made a gigantic impact on the Steelers’ season. Half the starters didn’t even play and does anyone even remember what the score was, because even after the Steelers beat the Panthers 17-16 in a game that doesn’t count, all people are going to remember is this is how Sean Spence’s rookie season ended...

During the offseason, both before the draft and after organized team activities, I forecasted the Pittsburgh Steelers season. In my first analysis, I had the Steelers finishing 11-5, and post 2012 Draft, I had them finishing 12-4. Now that the preseason has concluded, and the 53-man roster has been confirmed, I have compiled my final prediction for the 2012 season...
