Football Extra Points:
The Steelers failed to make the playoffs last year and will have a different look this season. Wallace, Mendenhall and Harrison are gone. They added Bell in the backfield through the draft, but they did not replace Wallace. How will they perform this year?
I like the Steelers to sweep their home games and do well on the road. I see them dropping their road games: @Cinci, @NE, @ GB.
Is that enough to go deep in the playoffs?
AFC Playoff Teams
NFC Playoff Teams
Patriots vs Broncos
Seahawks vs Packers
Broncos vs Packers
Champions - Packers
That's the first pass at my season predictions, I'll update them as we progress through camps.

There are plenty of reasons to be excited about the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2013 draft.
Jarvis Jones could make opposing quarterbacks fear the Steelers again.
Le’Veon Bell could be the Steelers’ first iconic running back since Jerome Bettis.
Markus Wheaton could be Mike Wallace with a brain.
Shamarko Thomas could fly all over the field and make plays.
That’s a lot of “could”s...
The Pittsburgh Steelers made a move to bolster their depth at the tackle position on Monday as it was announced that the team has come to terms with veteran free agent tackle Guy Whimper. In addition to Whimper, undrafted rookie free agent linebacker/safety Terence Garvin was also signed to the roster.
To make room for both Whimper and Garvin on the roster, the team released undrafted...
The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed veteran free agent offensive tackle Guy Whimper and undrafted rookie free agent linebacker Terence Garvin to contracts Monday. Whimper was originally drafted in the fourth round (No. 129 overall) by the New York Giants in the 2006 NFL Draft. The East Carolina graduate played for the Giants from 2006-09 and was a member of their Super Bowl XLII...
Pittsburgh Steelers rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones wants to be a starter but understands it will take time and a lot of hard work.
“I’m just going to go out here, give it everything I’ve got and try to do my best to get coached up and learn this system,” said Jones. “That’s what I control right now and that’s what I’m here for, just to get coached up, learn
Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark is going to be back on ESPN this week on multiple programs, but this time it is for a long-term reason. Clark is hoping to become an NFL analyst and broadcaster for ESPN after he leaves football. According to Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated Clark approached ESPN senior coordinating producer Seth Markman during Super Bowl week to ask him...

One of the most beloved Steelers legends, Joe Greene, or ‘Mean Joe’ as other players called him during his playing days, has chosen to retire from the Pittsburgh Steelers organization. Greene was a member of the Steelers’ player personnel department for nine years as a special assistant to General Manager Kevin Colbert. In 1984, Greene was inducted into the Pro Football Hall...
We recently reported that it might take a miracle for Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Sean Spence to ever play football again.
Head coach Mike Tomlin is more optimistic then most people. He believes Spence will play again after suffering a serious knee injury in 2012 that caused nerve damage.
“I did hear the opinion regarding Spence,” Tomlin said, according to the Steelers,...
Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell rushed for nearly 1,800 yards last season at Michigan State and I wanted to have a look at his splits in order to get an idea how he ran directionally.
Being as there isn't a site that has those stats, I was forced to scrape them myself from the play-by-play on Yahoo, as they are the only site that I know of that list...
Back in February the Pittsburgh Steelers met with free agent wide receiver Steve Breaston’s agent at the NFL Scouting Combine. Adding a veteran receiver like Breaston, who is familiar with Todd Haley’s offense, made sense at the time, but now it doesn’t make quite as much sense. Heading into the off-season the Steelers number one receiver from 2012, Mike Wallace, was to be...
Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley has caught a lot of flack this off-season after his second straight season that was plagued by injuries. After the season Woodley was called out by an anonymous teammate, or coach, for being out of shape and “terrible” during the 2012 season. All of this negativity around Woodley has created some incorrect opinions and...
By Jeff Craig: Jeff wrote this post in response to my post yesterday of: Would the Steelers be Willing to Carry a Special Teams Ace Next Season? I tend to agree with the opinion Jeff stats in this post, unless of course Reggie Dunn proves to be the next Devin Hester, but let us know what you think. Most of the information I have read about Reggie Dunn makes me believe him ideal...
Pittsburgh Steelers Hall of Famer Joe Greene is stepping down from his role in the team's player personnel department.
Greene announced his retirement on Monday. He had spent the last nine years as a special assistant for pro and college personnel for general manager Kevin Colbert. The 66-year-old Greene says he enjoyed his time scouting for the Steelers and will miss working...
Landry Jones had another bad day at the Steelers’ rookie minicamp, but there may be a good reason. First, these notes, quotes, anecdotes from Day 2:
According to Bob Labriola of Steelers.com the Pittsburgh Steelers have signed veteran offensive tackle Guy Whimper. Whimper was a fourth round pick of the New York Giants in the 2006 NFL Draft. He played for the Giants from 2006-2009 and then played for the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2010-2012. During the last two years he has player right tackle, left tackle and tight end for the...
