Heading into training camp the Pittsburgh Steelers were expected to have some good open competition at mutliple positions. One of those positions was supposed to be at left tackle where Mike Adams and Marcus Gilbert would be competing. However, as camp was opening there was a lot of talk that the position was Gilbert’s to lose. As things stand now it looks like the competition is on. For the past three days Adams has been playing at left tackle, but Gilbert started camp in that spot. The competition now is to find out what five lineman, and where they line-up, give the Steelers the best possible offensive line for pass protection and the running game. As for Adams and Gilbert they will be the starting tackles. The only question is as to what side they will be lining up on, but Adams is impressing so far. “He’s doing a good […]

Perhaps The Greatest Ike Taylor Interview Ever

Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor has given several great interviews over the course of his many years in the league. Some have had serious tones, while others are just outright funny. The interview Taylor gave a few days ago on DVE Radio is perhaps his all-time greatest one ever, at least from a funny perspective. [...] Perhaps The Greatest Ike Taylor Interview Ever is a...

Tomlin’s Training Camp Agenda is Very Apparent

There are two things that have become extremely clear through the first week plus of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Training Camp. Mike Tomlin is pushing physicality and he is forging a new paradigm with the Steelers in general. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Ed Bouchette pointed out that Tomlin has had the Steelers tackling more in practice than any time under his reign. In fact, according...

Steelers 2013 Training Camp – Day Eleven Recap

The Pittsburgh Steelers are almost halfway through with training camp and the Monday practice featured the team back in shorts after several days of wearing the pads.

Pittsburgh Steelers activate NT Alameda Ta’amu off PUP list

Nose tackle Alameda Ta’amu was the only player on the Pittsburgh Steelers physically unable to perform, or PUP, list that didn’t suffer a major knee injury in 2012. Ta’amu had injured a hamstring two weeks before the start of camp during his conditioning program. According to reports Ta’amu dropped 27 pounds during the off-season and his gut is clearly smaller.

Keith Butler Thinks Stevenson Sylvester Can Be A Good Third Inside Linebacker In 2013

We have talked quite a bit about of the lack of depth the Pittsburgh Steelers have at the inside linebacker position as they head into the 2013 season. David Todd of 970 ESPN Radio asked linebackers coach Keith Butler to give his thoughts on that depth when he talked to him on Saturday. “Kion Wilson, [...] Keith Butler Thinks Stevenson Sylvester Can Be A Good Third Inside Linebacker...

Notes from Steelers Saturday practice

I made a trip up to Latrobe, PA to Steelers training camp on Saturday afternoon. I probably didn’t choose the best of days, but it was an overall interesting experience. Many players did not participate in Saturday’s practice; that list included Le’Veon Bell, Lawrence Timmons, Brett Keisel, Jason Worilds, and Jarvis Jones. - Ben Roethlisberger and LaMarr Woodley have lost some...

Stephens-Howling right at home with Steelers

At 5-foot-7, LaRod Stephens-Howling doesn't feel out of place during some of the Pittsburgh Steelers' more size-oriented training camp drills. The running back has held his own during short-yardage and goal-line exercises and has looked right at home in ''backs-on-backers'' protection drills. It has helped that playing for the Steelers has made Stephens...

Pittsburgh Steelers Will Wear Ugly Bumblebee Throwback Uniforms in 2013

Old-school NFL uniforms tend to receive good reviews from fans and media outlets alike, but that wasn’t the case when the Pittsburgh Steelers unveiled their 1934 throwback bumblebee uniforms to commemorate the franchise’s 80th anniversary against the Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens last season.

Keith Butler Says Youth Is The Reason Why Steelers Needed Physical Practices Early

The Pittsburgh Steelers have a lot of depth concerns at numerous positions heading into the 2013 season, and that includes both the outside and inside linebacker spots. Linebackers coach Keith Butler was asked Sunday about the ongoing battles for roster spots, and if he has any more clarity now about the linebacker depth than he [...] Keith Butler Says Youth Is The Reason Why Steelers...

Before And After – LaMarr Woodley’s Pass Rushing As It Relates To 2011 Injury

Much has been made of the fact that Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley has only generated four sacks over the past season and a half since he blew out a hamstring running down Tom Brady midway through the team’s Week 8 victory over the New England Patriots in 2011. With that in mind, I [...] Before And After – LaMarr Woodley’s Pass Rushing As It Relates To...

Veteran Moorman out to win Steelers' punter job

Perhaps if it was as easy to make a living in track and field as it is in professional football, Brian Moorman wouldn't be spending these later-summer weeks in a Rooney Hall dorm room at St. Vincent College. After all, Moorman was merely an All-America selection for NCAA Division II for football. In track and field, he's a Hall of Famer. ''I still love to run,&...

Steelers and Bears essentially trade tight ends; Spaeth has minor surgery

Earlier this off-season the Pittsburgh Steelers chose to let tight-end Leonard Pope leave in free agency. Pope joined the Steelers as a free agent last off-season, but he was surpassed on the depth chart by seventh round pick David Paulson. To add some veteran depth at tight-end the Steelers brought back Matt Spaeth. Spaeth was the team’s third round pick in the 2007 draft, but...

As We Near The Preseason, Time To Tone Down The Steelers Physical Practices

By Matthew Marczi The 2013 edition of training camp, and in particular the padded practice portion of the proceedings, really opened up with a bang. Or rather, a series of bangs, spread out throughout the past week or so. More bangs than have been a part of a Pittsburgh Steelers training camp since Chuck Noll [...] As We Near The Preseason, Time To Tone Down The Steelers Physical...

Todd Haley Knows You Can’t Script Improvisation

The fire and bluster that incoming offensive coordinator Todd Haley was supposed to be bringing to the Pittsburgh Steelers was a major storyline within the national media a season ago. Haley was supposed to be yelling at Ben Roethlisberger on the sidelines every time he broke the pocket, regardless of whether or not the play [...] Todd Haley Knows You Can’t Script Improvisation...
