Steel City Blitz:
New York Giants
The Pittsburgh Steelers enter the 2013 NFL season with question marks like every other team in the league. This is what we’ve come to expect in the free agency era of pro football. With teams restricted by the salary cap and limited amounts of contact in practice, the days of seeing a team without concerns at certain positions are long gone.
It would be very easy for me to say the most important Steeler for 2013 is quarterback Ben Roethlisberger or rookie running back Le’Veon Bell or even the underachieving LaMarr Woodley. Each of those guys have strong arguments made for them as to why they would be the most important guy this year, but these aren’t the person I have in my mind.
This guy is a former seventh round draft pick who enters his second season with the Steelers and despite expecting little from him last year as a rookie, he ended up starting five games. Former SMU Mustang Kelvin Beachum is the most important Steelers’ player this year for a number of reasons and he isn’t e...

Sporting News released their top twenty candidates for the 2013 NFL rookie of the year award. Of those twenty players two are Steelers’ rookies and both rank in the top four on their list. The last time the Steelers had a rookie of the year was 2004 when Ben Roethlisberger won the award. Pittsburgh has had three rookie of the year’s on each side of the ball. Roethlisberger, Franco...
There might not be that many measurable stats for a 3 – 4 defensive lineman but it is this writer’s opinion that the defensive line is quite possibly the most important unit of a 3 – 4 scheme. There aren’t a shower of accolades like in the wake of sacks and the position itself is downright brutal, having to many times absorb a pounding double-team from angry 300lb O-Line...
I’ve seen multiple fans talk about getting rid of Todd Haley following his first season as the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator. Others are hoping for big years from the line to get the offense back on track. Hopes for a big year from the running backs is another common discussion topic this off-season. After a disappointing 8-8 season the blame has to fall somewhere....
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown will be featured in an upcoming segment on steelers.com in which the cameras follow him around for a day of his life and the video is already out early.
Brown's brother, Desmond Brown, who is currently a running back at the University of Pittsburgh, appears to have leaked the video early on Youtube and in it you will see Antonio...
The Steelers lost some big names in Wallace, Mendenhall and Harrision this season. How will Big Ben respond with his deep threat missing. Can the Steelers make it back to the Playoffs.
Here are the biggest questions for each team heading into camp.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Isaac Redman was asked during a recent fan Q & A session on steelers.com if he remembers what his welcome to the NFL moment was on the field and the former undrafted free agent out of Bowie State said that he did.
"One game I got a concussion, Sunday Night Football against the Bengals," started Redman. "Ben (Roethlisberger) had...
Last season Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham had the second best year of his NFL career based on field goal percentage. Prior to the 2013 season, though, Suisham was only consistent in his constant inconsistency. Year to year Suisham has struggled to put together back-to-back successful seasons. For that reason it is hard to figure out just what the Steelers may get from...
The Steelers selected Jarvis Jones 17th overall in the 2013 NFL Draft. Jones played in a 3-4 scheme while in college at Georgia.
“Georgia’s 3-4 system under Coach Grantham was very helpful for me and my pro career at Pittsburgh, said Jones via georgiadogs.com. There may be more to do here and it may be more complex, but what I learned at Georgia has given me an advantage with...

Of the five new starters—or starters in new positions, as is the case for Marcus Gilbert—that the Pittsburgh Steelers will be bringing to the offensive huddle in Week 1 of the 2013 season, we have already covered four. However, those positions are already all but resolved; the final position legitimately appears to be up for grabs.
Although Isaac Redman...
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown decided to follow is Chad Johnson’s footsteps and run on a treadmill.
It doesn’t look like Brown ran at 24 MPH like Johnson since the video doesn’t tell us how fast he was going. My guess is he was running at about 15 MPH.
