The Pittsburgh Steelers entered the 2012 season with
aspirations of at least making the playoffs if not contending for another Super
Bowl. Instead, the team finished a disappointing 8-8, missing out on a playoff
appearance. Yesterday, general manager Kevin Colbert indicated the significant
changes could be coming in Pittsburgh.
Colbert told reporters, including Bob Labriola of Steelers
Digest, that if the team doesn’t change its roster that produced an 8-8 record,
they’d “be silly to expect a different result.” Colbert added that the team is
not currently “married” to any players.
The Steelers are currently projected to be $10.8 million
over the 2013 salary cap. When asked how he would handle this in order to get
under the limit, Colbert pointed to “terminations, possible extensions and
The Steelers are veteran-laden, especially on the defense,
and it will be interesting to see what is to come of linebacker James Harrison
and safety Troy Polamalu. There are also questions surrounding the future of
wide receiver Mike Wallace in Pittsburgh.
Whatever the case, it seems like there will be a shakeup in
Pittsburgh this offseason.

"Bizarre". That is the only word I know how to describe the whole Manti Te'o alleged fake internet girlfriend hoax story right now. If you have been hiding underneath a rock, I am not even going to try to rewrite the story up until this point.

If there is one thing that most draft experts can agree on it’s that the 2013 NFL draft is deep in terms of quality players.

In fact, the draft is deep in second round talent more than anything.
Therefore, the Steelers best bet for the draft may...
The Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to allow long-time nose tackle Casey Hampton to leave via free agency. Since 2001 Hampton has anchored the Steelers defensive line and has been a key to the Steelers success against the run. Hampton’s ability to take up blockers and open lanes for linebackers has helped the team rank first on defense for multiple years during his career.

This is exactly what they will do, very little...

I’ve decided as my first series of articles for SteelersAddicts.com, I will review the season that just was, focusing on a particular position or set of positions. This week, I will look at the quarterback position.
First, a little about me. I’m originally from Butler, PA, and one of my first memories in sports is the Steelers winning Super Bowl XIII, their third, making them...
