Steelers Training Camp Practice Report: Day Fifteen – Thursday...
Even with starting nose tackle Steve McLendon missing the preseason opener against the New York Giants, Pittsburgh Steelers rookie nose tackle Daniel McCullers still took third-team reps at the position behind Cam Thomas and Hebron Fangupo.

On Friday night during a drill at a Pittsburgh Steelers training camp practice open to the public, two players locked up and started throwing punches. Bill Phillips of WPXI was on hand and got a nice action shot of the scuffle:

If there is any unit that could make or break the 2014 season for the Pittsburgh Steelers it would be this one. The defensive line will feature one player on the rise, a promising rookie, a guy still looking for his place and a guy looking for a second chance.
Those descriptions don’t leave Steelers’ fans loaded with confidence and I can hardly blame them.
The guy on the rise...
The Pittsburgh Steelers will report to Latrobe for training camp on Friday, so I thought we would continue to spend these last several days talking about a few players that many believe will have a decent shot at making the final 53 man roster. Basically, these are players that we can’t quite consider locks, but do consider […]

When it was reported that the Pittsburgh Steelers were meeting with a free agent nose tackle yesterday, this move was no doubt received as a bit of a pleasant surprise by many fans who question the decision to play Steve McLendon at nose tackle.
As I have written previously, while McLendon is the best candidate on the roster to fulfill the duties of the nose tackle in this defense...
With the start of free agency now right around the corner, a few people have asked my thoughts on whether or not the Pittsburgh Steelers should go after soon-to-be Miami Dolphins free agent nose tackle Paul Soliai, so here are my thoughts on him.
For starters, if you are in the group that believes starting nose tackle Steve McLendon should be kicked outside to defensive end, then...
For a team facing so much adversity in the past season and heading into the next with a litany of questions to address, it’s natural to consider the issues and how they can either go right or wrong, as well as how they will affect the broader dynamics and future success of the team, both heading into this season and into the future.
Though not statistically true, it is technically...

Ask any Pittsburgh Steelers fan now and he’ll tell you that the offseason began way too early for their team, which even according to team president Art Rooney II should have been in the playoffs.
If you asked that same fan at the Bye Week for their mock draft, however, they might have already had written up as the Steelers faced a seemingly unthinkable winless...

Last week, the Steelers were forced to play without two starting defensive linemen, as both defensive end Brett Keisel and nose tackle Steve McLendon were forced to sit out the game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
That thrust both Ziggy Hood and Al Woods into the starting lineup at defensive end and nose tackle, respectively. The only remaining reserve was Hebron...
