Recently during the mini camps that the Steelers are holding this offseason, tight end Heath Miller and Mike Tomlin both mentioned about the increased role that the tight ends may see this season under new offensive coordinator Todd Haley. NFL.com had an article about just this such topic but time will tell and we’ll believe it when we see it.
Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Heath Miller is expected to play a key role as a receiver in new offensive coordinator Todd Haley’s system, Ed Bouchette reports in Thursday’s edition of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
“Haley is excited about what Heath Miller is capable of,” head coach Mike Tomlin said. “He’s been very clear about that, his excitement to work with Miller. I would imagine that the tight end is going to be a part of our plan.”
“I definitely see opportunities for that to happen,” said Miller. “That’s not to say there weren’t opportunities in the last offense. We (the tight ends) are going to be involved a lot.”

There has been a lot made about the rumor that Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace is asking for “Larry Fitzgerald Money” in negotiations with the team. The immediate reaction was that Wallace was referencing Fitzgerald’s 8 year $128 million contract. However, perhaps, and this is Continue
Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward might be entering his second season, but the last few weeks of OTA sessions have been his first thanks to the lockout last year. Heyward, the Steelers first round draft pick out of Ohio State last year, saw just 246 snaps last season as a rookie with 49 of those coming in the AFC Wild Card game against the Denver Broncos after starter...
One of the biggest topics of discussion amongst Pittsburgh Steelers fans this off-season, outside of the ongoing status of restricted free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace, is the change of offensive coordinators and how quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has handled it.
Roethlisberger is perceived by many as one, and the only one, bucking the change so far, and with good reason, as...
Libby Kavoulakis, a Pittsburgh Steelers fan in the District of Columbia, can't seem to catch a break as she has had several Steelers banners stolen from outside her home dating back to 2006.
Despite all the thefts, Kaoulakis has continued to show her love for the Black and Gold by continuing to buy replacement banners to hang in place of the stolen ones, only to have them stolen...

A lot of the pieces I write have involved tight ends as the subject. I believe it’s an important position on the field and on the Steelers depth chart. Many figured Heath Miller would get more involved in the new offense and it appears to be heading in that direction. With the increased focus on the run game, this was to be expected. Also, let’s not forget...
Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette speculated on Wednesday of last week that rookie tackle Mike Adams might be able to attend the Pittsburgh Steelers third and final OTA session that gets underway this week after being told last Tuesday that players can attend once their course work ends, not necessarily when the semester ends. Unfortunately that will not be the case as...
When Todd Haley was introduced as the new offensive coordinator of the Pittsburgh Steelers back in early February, one of the first Steelers players that he mentioned by name during his introductory press conference was tight end Heath Miller. Haley said at that time that Miller is one of his favorite players that he has studied and prepared for during his coaching career. That is...
Joe Bendel of ESPN 970 had a great interview with cornerback Cortez Allen this past week that you need to make sure you listen to.
Veteran defensive end Brett Keisel also made time for an interview on 105 The X to talk about OTA sessions and changes on defense.
The Steelers cut long time veteran Aaron Smith, who had played 13 years with the team, this offseason, opening up a starting job on the defensive line. The Steelers were prepared for this day as they spent 2 first round picks on defensive linemen, Ziggy Hood and Cameron Heyward, in the 2009 and 2011 NFL Draft respectively, with Aaron Smith and Brett Keisel getting up there in age...
Len Pasquarelli writes that a few teams have stayed in contact with veteran free agent tackle Max Starks and that he could be a July signing, or a safety net for a club that either suffers an injury or lacks depth at tackle. Pasquarelli says he isn't likely to return to the Steelers again, but both Bob Labriola and Mike Prisuta disagree with that in the latest episode of Agree...
If you’ve been reading anything into the comments by members of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offense recently then you’d be excused for thinking we may be running the wing-t or full house offense in 2012.
Of course you could also be excused if you think new offensive coordinator Todd Haley has brought in ‘run ‘n shoot’ guru Mouse Davis to run a pass-happy offense instead...
Two years ago the Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl 45. However, we will be looking at a hypothetical situation go back to February of 2011 and imagine the Steelers defeated the Packers on route to their seventh Lombardi Trophy.

It was reported by several Pittsburgh-Area and many national outlets that recently retired Steelers’ wide receiver Hines Ward will be ‘taking his talents’ to NBC where he will serve as an analyst for Sunday Night Football among other duties for the peacock network.
I’m not surprised at all that Ward will be a TV personality as I think many Steelers fans would have predicted...
Now that we at Steelers 101 have broken down the roster for the 50 position players that we feel will man the opening day roster for 2012, it is time to finish things off with the three specialists that will open the season for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Unlike the other roster spots, there should not be quite the OTA or training camp battle for these positions, although there is some...
