Found December 18, 2013 on Steelers Depot:
Season 4, Episode 59 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I talk about the decision made Tuesday by the Pittsburgh Steelers to place linebacker LaMarr Woodley on injured reserve. This of course leads to us beating more dead calves and again spills over to talk about Jason Worilds. We warned you that this would be a hot talking point for a while. We move on eventually to discuss several things that head coach Mike Tomlin had to say during his Tuesday press conference and that includes us talking about Al Woods, Jarvis Jones and Le'Veon Bell. We discuss a few more talking points before welcoming back Eric Edholm of Yahoo Sports back to the show. Eric speaks fluent NFC North and gives us his thoughts on the Green Bay Packers as we inch closer to the Sunday game at Lambeau Field. You can follow Eric on Twitter at @Eric_Edholm and read his work online at the Sutdown Corner blog as well. Thanks for listening and don't forget to call or email with questions or c...

Let The Calf Beating Season Commence

Prior to Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley being placed on season-ending injured reserve on Tuesday, head coach Mike Tomlin was asked to describe his play when he has been healthy.

Lamarr Woodley's future with Steelers in question

Mike Tomlin's comments about LaMarr Woodley's play this season were telling about the outside linebacker's future with the Steelers beyond the final two games of 2013.

Tackle No Longer a Given for Steelers’ First Pick of the Draft

As this miserable 2013 season wears on, I really don’t want to start looking ahead to the NFL Draft but I think there might be reason to considering the development of several players. Early thinking had the Pittsburgh Steelers more than likely drafting an offensive tackle in the first round. With two games to go, I’m not so sure. Mike Tomlin and company appear to be satisfied...

Steelers to Release Woodley?

It's tough to run a successful sports franchise and keep everybody happy. With the salary cap and a lot of good players, you have to lean on the system to drive the team and not get caught up with overpaying veterans. You use the draft as a place where you breed replacements for guys who overstay their value and so on. The Steelers are probably the best example of how do to that...

Mike Tomlin: Le'Veon Bell was 'easy' pick over Eddie Lacy

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has given Offensive Rookie of the Year candidate Eddie Lacy some extra motivation leading up to Sunday's game in Green Bay.

Pittsburgh Steelers: 5 Coaches To Replace Mike Tomlin

The Pittsburgh Steelers will enter Week 16 with a 6-8 record. They are third in the AFC North, behind the Cincinnati Bengals and the reigning Super Bowl Champions, Baltimore Ravens. Mike Tomlin is under scrutiny for his choice in offensive coordinator. It appears after a two-year sample size that releasing Bruce Arians in place of Todd Haley was not a great move. Then there is...
