The Pittsburgh Steelers will certainly be faced with a backup quarterback dilemma next season as both Charlie Batch and Byron Leftwich are once again unrestricted free agents.

The problem with both of those scenarios, however, is that the talent pool is thin in each of them.
The quarterback draft class this year is not very exciting at all, and if you have been following the paths of mid-round prospects; Landry Jones, Ryan Nassib, Tyler Read more [...]

It’s no secret that the Pittsburgh Steelers have several areas of need heading into the 2013 NFL Draft, and while need normally does not dictate who they draft early on, they will more than likely use their later picks to address lack of depth at certain positions. If when the Steelers select at pick 17, the best player on the board happens to be at their position...
There is no denying the fact that the Pittsburgh Steelers safeties, Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu, are getting older. Polamalu will soon turn 32 and Clark will turn 34 during the 2013 season.

Even George Bush is like damn homie….
There are various reasons why players in general don’t like Roger Goodell, but I think it is summed up best by Steelers James Harrison.
