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 typic...

The case for keeping the Big Snack in Pittsburgh

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...

Clark reaffirms notion of watch what you tweet

Each and every one of us has been in the unenviable position of having stuck our foot in our respective mouths before. If you haven’t, then you’re perfect and can stop reading.

How the 2001 draft led to Casey Hampton

By Christina Rivers 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...

Things I Think I Think – Steelers 3/6/12

Just some random musings about Steelers topics that have been going through my head.

Okay, honestly I don’t care about this.  I’m sure Ben doesn’t actually run the freaking foundation in his spare [...]
