Among my peers it has long since been argued the importance of the preseason. Recently the NFL discussed trimming it down to two games. While I believe this was more a monetary move to create an 18 game season, the price would then be paid by the fringe players fighting to make the 53. In 2003 Bill Cowher decided to run the Tommy Gun offense. While this might have seemed like a good...

Yinzing In Free Agency with Duce Staley

NFL free agency starts tomorrow and what better way to kick off the signing period than by commemorating one of the mediocre signings the Steelers had. Duce Staley was a stud on the Eagles when healthy. He ran like a bowling ball and was a good receiver out of the backfield. That sort of combo made his signing in Pittsburgh very tantalizing, especially when teamed up with an even...

Remember that feeling you had last year when the Steelers were on the clock in the first round of the NFL Draft? Like you, I was pretty confident the pick was going to be a cornerback. As the Commissioner approached the podium I had resigned myself to the fact that Michigan State’s Darqueze Dennard would be the pick. Here we are nine months later and still, the Steelers have yet...

Cowher Was a Player's Coach Too, Mike Tomlin

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin is considered a players' coach, and right now, he doesn't like it very much.Back when he was leading the team to two Super Bowls, it was probably cool to be considered a players' coach (which Tomlin was even then), but now, after back-to-back 8-8 and playoff-less campaigns, it's safe to say Tomlin's not having as much fun at work as he once did.And...
