STEELERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

The NFL’s season kickoff isn’t going as planned, but plans don’t matter in the NFL

The gulf between the end of the previous season’s Super Bowl and the start of the new NFL season seems like an interminable one. Sure, the draft, training camp and the preseason games satiate fans’ desire, but only briefly. We want the real thing, and the NFL knows this. That’s why the yearly season opener has been pushed up to Thursday nights in recent years and the league...

Michael Vick deserves one last shot to play for a contender

Not every Pittsburgh Steelers fan is happy about their team signing Michael Vick on Tuesday. Since spending nearly two years in prison for funding and participating in a dogfighting ring, Vick has suited up for the Philadelphia Eagles from 2009 to 2013 and the New York Jets last season.

Is it worth drafting the Pittsburgh Steelers defense?

The Pittsburgh Steelers had the 18th-best defense last year, a rank that the Steel Curtain is definitely not used to. The Steelers struggled on the defensive side of the ball last year, but there are many changes to the unit heading into the 2015 season. If they did not make any offseason changes, Pittsburgh’s defense would most likely not be worthy of a fantasy selection, but...

Can Steelers CB Senquez Golson contribute in 2015?

There has been a lot of speculation regarding Senquez Golson’s shoulder injury and his ability to come back from that injury and contribute this year. He had surgery to repair “the injury” today. The most recent scuttlebutt is that it was to repair a torn labrum suffered while weight lifting. Understand, that I don’t know this to be the case. I am simply passing along what...
