Joey Porter could be a key contributor to Steelers coaching staff

Mike Munchak may have been the most important addition to the Steelers coaching staff but Joey Porter could be just as influential. The ex-Steelers linebacker has a legacy of having a large personality with the play to back it up.

Mike Munchak is here to get the Steelers a seventh Lombardi Trophy

Mike Munchak is regarded as one of the best offensive linemen of all time. He's also known for being one of the best offensive line coaches working today. So when the Steelers hired Munchak, they obviously had high expectations for what Munchak could do. Those expectations can only be matched by the standards that Munchak has set for himself and this year's Steelers...

Remaining Steelers free agents

Expect Maurkice Pouncey to get an extension

The Steelers offensive line took a huge step back within minutes of the regular season due to the loss of Maurkice Pouncey to injury. As the injury isn't considered to be systemic, and Pouncey has largely been able to stay healthy outside of the torn ACL and MCL that ended his 2013 season, expect Pouncey to receive an extension this summer, according to Scott Brown of ESPN...

LeGarrette Blount to do short-yardage and goal-line work

It is not all too surprising given his size and strength, but LeGarrette Blount was told by the Steelers to expect the role of short yardage and goal-line back. It is a role which Blount has consistently been cast in since he entered the NFL: "They wanted to let me know up front what they wanted me to do and they told me they definitely want me to do short yardage...

Darrius Heyward-Bey's value lies in blocking

Although it was Darrius Heyward-Bey's speed that got him noticed by NFL personnel and eventually got him drafted in the first round by the Raiders, it is his blocking that could make him a valuable asset in the Steelers' offense. DHB could use better hands to catch footballs but he can block with the best of them, which is something that the Colts utilized quite...

So, Todd Haley is Expected to Stay in Pittsburgh

In news which will be met by a groan by many in Steeler Nation, it looks like the Steelers are leaning towards retaining Todd Haley.
