Is Connor Barth the Turning Point to Success?

Connor Barth. If saying that name doesn’t make you cringe somehow you might not be human. In a league full of players with names like Ziggy Hood, Frostee Rucker, Guy Whimper, and Captain Mutherlyn, there is a man named Connor Barth. Every time I say it I feel like I am cursing in German. I just know that the first 46-yard field goal that Barth doinks off the upright, Twitter will...

With three straight AFC North games — will the Ravens stay undefeated in 2014?

The purple and black went unbeaten in the preseason. To some, this doesn’t mean much because, well, it was the preseason. To others, however, an undefeated preseason means momentum going into the regular season. Now, those are objective views towards a successful preseason. As for those affiliated with the Baltimore Ravens, they don’t have too many reasons to be unhappy right...

Tackle Reps May Be Hard To Come By For Wesley Johnson

It almost appears that the Pittsburgh Steelers are sending rookie Wesley Johnson mixed signals. When you look at the 53-man roster, the logical conclusion would have to be that his primary responsibility would be as a tackle, because reserve linemen Cody Wallace and Chris Hubbard are not end players. Guy Whimper had been running as […] Tackle Reps May Be Hard To Come By For Wesley...

Steelers’ 2014 Training Camp Battle Report: Offensive Line

For the first time in many years, the Pittsburgh Steelers are entering a season with an offensive line that has few questions. That doesn’t mean there aren’t questions, it’s just that there are as many as we’ve dealt with in the past. The starting five appear to be set. Kelvin Beachum will start at left tackle and Marcus Gilbert at right tackle. David DeCastro is your right...

New Steelers OL Wesley Johnson Likely Needs To Beat Out Guy Whimper To Make Final 53

Being as new Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Wesley Johnson measures in at just over 6'5" and weighs 297 pounds, he's not likely going to see many starts at the NFL level at the left tackle position, a position he started 39 games while at Vanderbilt. Johnson's position flexibility, however, should allow him to play any […] New Steelers OL Wesley Johnson Likely Needs To...

Happy Easter Sunday!!! We continue our look back through the past decade of Giants’ draft picks with the 2006 NFL draft. The Giants’ front office in 2006 did not do nearly as well with their draft picks as they had in previous years.

Guy Whimper Signing Insulates The Steelers From Need Along The Offensive Line

Even if the Guy Whimper signing ultimately ends up as just a placeholder, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ decision to bring back ‘Abdullah the Butcher’ is a shrewd one that insulates them from need along the offensive line. He was greatly maligned when he was first brought here last offseason, but he proved that he was worth his salary, playing 270 snaps in total and at least a handful...

Don’t Read Too Much Into The Steelers Decision To Bring Back Guy Whimper

While I am a little bit surprised the Pittsburgh Steelers re-signed veteran offensive lineman Guy Whimper on Monday, I do understand the reasoning behind the move. In the grand scheme of things, however, I don't think much should be read into him being re-signed. Whimper, to his credit, played better than I expected he would last year when called upon.

Whimper played a total of 270 snaps last season and played some at every position on the offensive line except center. Last week, the Steelers re-signed backup center/guard Cody Wallace to a...

Steelers Re-Sign OL Guy Whimper

  The Pittsburgh Steelers announced that they have signed OT Guy Whimper to a one-year deal on Monday. Whimper, 30, came over the Jaguars last year and appeared in 10 games for the Steelers last season. He was limited to playing just 270 snaps last year and really seemed to struggle as a run-blocker. Pittsburgh could use some depth at offensive tackle, but it’s hard to say that...

Steelers End Of Season Player Exit Meetings – G/T Guy Whimper

End-of-season player exit meetings are not something that we are often privy to as outsiders of the football world. Generally, we only get a glimpse into that world when a player is asked by a reporter how the meeting went, if the player is willing to discuss it. Still, it’s not generally a hard concept to grasp, and we have a pretty good feel by now of how Mike Tomlin and his...
