Found July 09, 2012 on Steelers Depot:
By Christopher DiMarino The level of excitement for the 2012 NFL season continues grow as the season opener draws nearer. Accordingly, the time for draft scouting is also about to begin. Getting a jump start on next year's draft class is important and will help garner a general interest in college football for Steelers fans. There are many factors that prevent any accurate, in-depth analysis being done until the end of the season (injuries, not announcing draft eligibility, etc.). I, however, like to watch film if possible on prospects, and what better time to do it then when they are playing Read more [...]

Obvious & Not So Obvious Statistical Elements Of A Good Steelers Defense

Stats and rankings certainly do not tell the whole story when it comes to football, but some of them will paint a pretty good picture for you at least.

In this post I intend to show some key stats and rankings...

Despite frustrating returns, Randle El always gave his best

Former Steelers wide out and return man Antwaan Randle El will not be joining the Hall of Fame as he enters retirement. He will not be remembered for having huge games in terms of yardage and return yardage and frankly, when his name comes up, thoughts of his touchdown pass to Hines Ward in Super Bowl XL is what you remember. It’s hard to imagine a slot receiver and return man...

2012 Pittsburgh Steelers training camp roster throwdown: tight ends

The National Football League is a copycat league plain and simple. If teams have success throwing the ball then other franchises take notice. If the 3-4 defense is more productive than the 4-3, teams make changes. The tight end position is no exception. Once a spot reserved for men who were nothing more than extra offensive tackles who caught 30-40 balls per season, they are now...

Allen Iverson and Mike Tomlin (yes THAT Mike Tomlin) Host Party At Club in VA

When I saw the flier for a party former Sixer Allen Iverson and current Steelers coach Mike Tomlin are hosting together my brain kept screaming ODD COUPLE. Then I remembered that they’re both from Newport News, Virginia and they’re both about the same age. I’m guessing this party is the kickoff to Iverson’s Crossover Basketball Tournament to be held on July 14th and 15th...
