Found April 08, 2013 on Steelers Depot:
Pittsburgh Steelers nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu made a poor decision Sunday evening when he retweeted an old picture of himself with an acquaintance in a car with a bottle of Cinnamon whiskey. He has since deleted those tweets and apologized. Moving forward now, it will be interesting to see if the Steelers feel comfortable enough with Ta'amu and Hebron Fangupo, who they signed off of waivers from the Seattle Seahawks last season, fighting to back up Steve McLendon as they head into the draft later this month. If they draft a nose tackle at any point during the draft, it will be a clear sign Read more [...]

Don’t Take Ben Roethlisberger For Granted As He Heads Into 10th Season

By Jeremy Hritz It is hard to believe that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is 31 years old and is entering his tenth season in the National Football League. In his nine years, he has delivered two Super Bowl Championships and countless highlights that have resulted in exciting last second victories. Sadly, the inevitable is that Roethlisberger maybe has five...

Pittsburgh Steelers 2013 NFL draft predictions: Geno Smith

I have a feeling that the 2013 NFL Draft is going to be one of the craziest drafts in a long-time because not one of the prospects have solidified themselves as the number one player. Draft experts are still debating whether Luke Joeckel will go to the Chiefs number one overall. However, my first bold prediction for the 2013 draft is that the Pittsburgh Steelers will select a quarterback...

Steelers’ Ta’amu tweets photo of himself in car with whiskey

From the "one way to end your career" file comes the latest buffoonery from Steelers nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu. On Sunday night, Ta'amu retweeted a photo of himself and (presumably) a friend driving while brandishing a bottle of whiskey. That, in itself, would be a pretty bad idea. Making it worse, though, was this came just three days after Ta'amu was...

Steelers Alameda Ta’amu Celebrates Getting Probation For DUI By Driving Around With Whisky?

Pittsburgh Steelers nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu was in the news this past week as he received 18 months probation for driving under the influence and crashing into several parked cars last October. So how is Ta'amu celebrating his slap on the wrist? According to a picture that he retweeted Sunday night on his Twitter account, he is driving around with a friend who is holding...

Steelers’ Alameda Ta’amu tweets a really dumb picture of himself

Pittsburgh Steelers nose tackle Alameda Ta’amu made a huge mistake and tweeted a picture of himself with a bottle of alcohol while riding in a vehicle. Just realized I retweeted a bad pic from after the draft last year.Friend from home messin with me. I don’t drink anymore. HONEST MISTAKE — Alameda Taamu 95 (@MEDATAAMU74) April 8, 2013 I don’t go out and I don’t drink...

Understanding the Steelers “Standard” on Player Conduct

In the calendar year of 2013, the Pittsburgh Steelers have had two players in trouble with the law. Both were rookies last season and both have met different fates to this point. Many have already asked why? Why are these two guys who both committed egregious acts away from the game treated differently by the Steelers? I have to ask you first to take off your black ‘n gold colored...

Steelers Choosing a RB Early Could Send Several Messages

There has obviously been a lot of talk regarding the poor quarterback class in this year’s NFL Draft and rightfully so. Especially when you compare the potential picks to last year’s haul which resulted in five starters in the league, this April’s draft class has tons to prove. The other area that I don’t find particularly awe-inspiring is the running back position and there...

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has been named to the NFL's competition committee. Commissioner Roger Goodell named Tomlin to the committee on Tuesday. Tomlin will replace former Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt. Tomlin had worked on the Coaches Subcommittee of the Competition Committee since 2009. The 41-year-old Tomlin is 68-36 in six seasons with the Steelers...

Pittsburgh Steelers: A Look at the Five Fastest Wide Receivers in the 2013 NFL Draft

It’s been established in this space that if Tennessee wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson is available, the Pittsburgh Steelers should select him with the No. 17 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. But what if Patterson is gone by the time the Steelers pick? What if they pick an outside linebacker or a running back instead? That would be OK, but the Steelers still would need to take at...

Teams being careful in free agency

Free agency has been strange this offseason. It started with some of the normal big-name contracts, but has sense cooled. The remaining big-name players that didn't sign quickly seem to be left out in the cold. Teams just aren't willing to sign aging veterans to huge contracts. Eric Winston is one such veteran. Winston said on Sirius XM NFL Radio that his asking price...
