Found August 26, 2013 on Steel City Blitz:
There have been moments in the first three preseason games for the Pittsburgh Steelers that made me want to stop time. I wanted to bottle the moments I saw and save them for December and hopefully January. The moments I’m talking about were plays on which Troy Polamalu looked like Troy Polamalu. With hair flapping behind him and that juvenile little skip he has as he approaches the line, Polamalu has looked as good as he has in years.

Over the last several seasons, Polamalu has struggled to remain healthy, especially in the latter parts of the season when winning and losing are the difference between the playoffs and the beach. You’ll forgive me if I have my doubts even though the future hall of famer looks tremendous right now. The track record of years’ past has not escaped my mind and probably not yours either.

Troy Polamalu: Surfer looks, Steel City tough

This has happened to me my whole life, when folks see the long hair and think surfer, hippie, stoner, and pretty much any other thing that you could come up with. The only one that describes me is that I do surf. My family is of Samoan descent which is rich with culture and history. We are a warrior class of people which makes me a warrior with a warrior spirit and heart... Read more

Steelers safety Ryan Clark speaks out about the NFL and their rules

Probably not one of the smartest things to do, with LORD Goodell in office, but someone had to do it.  I agree with Ryan Clark 100 percent, hitting up top is not always illegal.  I think the players need to come together and do something because these injuries are getting worse and worse by the […]

The Pittsburgh Steelers having problems protecting their QB’s. What’s going to happen once the season starts?

The Pittsburgh Steelers must have had a case of deja vu last night when they saw the Kansas City Chiefs sacking this quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. After all it was the Chiefs pass rush that almost killed Roethlisberger and knocked him out for almost half a season a year earlier. Pittsburgh played the Chiefs last night and they saw the Chiefs continue to bring pressure to their...

Steelers relying on new faces to replace old stars

It was, even by Brett Keisel's standards, a little over the top. Hard hat pulled tight over his head, thatch beard already in midseason form, the veteran Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end arrived at training camp last month in a mini-dump truck. Just to prove he knew what he was doing, the 13-year veteran hit a lever and sent his luggage tumble out of the cargo bed. As an entrance...

Woodley’s Success Depends on Him

I’ve seen and heard a lot about LaMarr Woodley the last few days. Much of the talk has revolved around how much Woodley needs his counterpart on the other side of the defense to create his sack opportunities. While I understand the point from a schematic point of view, I don’t always buy it. With James Harrison no longer a part of the Pittsburgh Steelers, some have voiced concern...

Rotation Gameplan At Outside Linebacker Evident In Third Preseason Game

By Matthew Marczi When Pittsburgh Steelers linebackers coach Keith Butler spoke earlier this offseason of a rotation at the outside linebacker position during this season, I was skeptical, recalling past comments from other position coaches of rotation plans that never came to fruition.
