The Bus says Mike Wallace doesn’t get the Steelers

The Mike Wallace holdout saga continues, and as the days weeks continue to go by more people are speaking out on the situation. It’s a shame that we still have to talk about this with preseason underway and the regular season starting next month. Somehow though in the back of our minds, as fans we feared it would come to this and now it has.  Much like Hines Ward’s situation...

Steelers football, coming to an Olympics near you?

This went somewhat un-noticed during all the media hype of the Olympics going on currently, and of course with the NFL preseason underway but NFL Commissioner Goodell told PFT’s Mike Florio that he wants the NFL to be an olympic sport. If you read through the excerpt below you can tell that he is quite adamant about finding a way to make it happen. I’m honestly not sure how...

Steelers preseason: Who and what to watch for on offense

Things to watch for during the Steelers preseason on offense. This is an important time for this group, they finally get to start putting into action what Todd Haley has been installing this offseason and in camp. As Mike Tomlin said in a recent press briefing after camp, “This isn’t a new offense to us, it’s just new to you guys. We’ve been working on this for months”...

Steelers preseason: Who and what to watch on defense

I’m one who enjoys watching preseason games just to see the young guys because in many cases that’s the only time you see them all year unless injuries hit the starters. This year though things are different, there are many positions up for grabs so these preseason games take on more significance than usual. On defense there are many things to watch for as you take in these games...

SteelDad’s Rants and Slants; Version 5.0

Kicking Off I feel like ESPN but what the hell? The New York Jets are fighting more often than the Kardashians these days. A day after a reported 15-20 man royal rumble broke out, another one today happened that resulted in the team doing windsprints. Amazingly, this had nothing to do with Tim Tebow, but my guess is that he probably offered his services for a prayer and reconciliation...

Junior Achievement ultimate Pittsburgh sports ticket raffle

When Junior Achievement contacted us a few days ago asking for SteelerAddicts to help promote their upcoming contest, we were excited to do it. I can remember JA coming to our school when I was a kid, talking to us about careers and all the opportunities avavilable to us through their programs. It was a no brainer for us to help but then we saw what the raffle is all about and got...

Steelers have speed to burn even without Wallace, but is it enough?

I keep saying that I’m over and done with this whole Mike Wallace thing but as camp moves forward, heading into it’s second full week, the passing attack of the Steelers continues to prepare for life with out their speedy deep threat.  Whether or not you’re in the same boat as me, tired of the Wallace circus, thinking he’s a one trick pony, or whatever, he fills a role and...

Ben being Ben, again

This is getting to be as routine as getting the oil changed or seeing another ridiculous political ad on TV. ‘This’ that I speak is my annual article imploring all of you and myself included to take Steelers’ Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger with a grain of salt. Every season it seems Big Ben announces to us that there is something bothering him physically. An ankle here and...

Mike Adams may be the best, and only real choice, to start for the Steelers at LT

When the Steelers drafted Mike Adams out of OSU this past April, they had visions of him being the future anchor at left tackle for the next 10-15 years. When you draft someone that high, especially a guy like Adams who had 1st round potential on many draft boards, you expect them to come into camp and perform well. While the Steelers are not in a full on rebuilding mode, they are...

2012 Steelers training camp update: August 4th – Roethlisberger injures foot; not considered serious

After a big night in front of a huge crowd for the annual night practice event on Friday, today’s workouts started out without much drama or fanfare. That’s just the way Mike Tomlin would prefer it too. Even though he enjoys the event each year, he’s always been a coach that would rather leave the media out of it as much as possible, as well as all the pomp and circumstance...

2012 Steelers training camp: Is Willie Colon the next Chris Kemoeatu?

So one of the big stories in camp, as if there weren’t enough already, is the return of Willie Colon and of course his move to guard from tackle. If you’ve been following any of the chatter coming out of camp so far one of the things you’ve noticed is all the scrapping going on. Mike Tomlin likes this kind of intensity in camp, it shows the players care about what they’re...

4 legends retire as Steelers; Marvel Smith, Aaron Smith, Fast Willie Parker, & Joey Porter

One of the cool things, at least I think so, is when a former Steeler player decides to officially end their career as part of the black ‘n gold. Sure it’s just a formality but when you think about the memories those big names have given us over the years, it only seems fitting to see Marvel, Aaron, Fast Willie, and Peazy all say goodbye to the NFL as Pittsburgh Steelers. Ed...

On the Steelers; Patience required with DeCastro

After little more than a week into Steelers’Training Camp 2012 there has already been some discussion about our first round draft pick David DeCastro. I wish I could tell you it was more positive than it is but I wouldn’t hit the panic button just yet. DeCastro as you recall was a pipe dream back in April. There was no way the highest rated offensive guard in the draft was going...

2012 Steelers training camp update: August 2, Replacement officials visit

A mostly sunny day at St Vincent as the Steelers continue developing their squad for the regular season. The first preseason game is less than a week away, in Philadelphia, so as the days wear on in Latrobe the opportunity to hit someone in a different jersey gets closer and closer. Players always talk about how much fun it is, as much as preseason can be, to play against someone...

What exactly does “soon” mean when it comes to the Steelers’ Mike Wallace?

In all my years, and decades of watching the Steelers, I’m amazed at how many people all over the league are so intrigued about when Mike Wallace is going to show up. Pittsburgh fans and other teams fans alike. I say that not because I don’t want him there, but because haven’t we all learned by now this lesson of how NFL players go about their business? We hang on every tidbit...

Antonio Brown gets money, Mike Wallace holds out

Affiliate- One of the more bizarre story lines of the offseason is coming out of Pittsburgh, as the Steelers have given a nice fat new contract to Antonio Brown. However, they have not given one to their presumed number one, Mike Wallace. Well, sort of. Wallace was offered a deal worth nearly $42 million over the next five years (basically the same deal Brown got) and after he turned...

Ben Roethlisberger says his torn rotator cuff won’t be an issue

As training camp continues for the Pittsburgh Steelers this week, Ed Bouchette wrote a piece about Ben Roethlisberger, covering various topics not the least of which included Ben’s comments about his slightly torn rotator cuff. According to Ben he’s more worried about when Mike Wallace will return than about his shoulder. Ben Roethlisberger does not seem as concerned about his...

Steelers’ fans should welcome Pirates’ success

I don’t need to tell any of you that what is happening a couple of Ben Roethlisberger deep balls from Heinz Field is nothing short of amazing. The long-awaited ‘season above. 500′ is finally happening at PNC Park and Pirates’ fans deserve it. Sadly, I’ve seen some comments recently where Steelers’ fans have made less than proper statements wishing for an end to the baseball...

After getting a mandatory day off each week during training camp, thanks to the new CBA ratified by the players and owners last year, the Steelers are back at it this afternoon with their regular workout open to the public. Thunder & lightening again during the workouts as mother nature refuses to consistently cooperate with Mike Tomlin’s team. One thing that stuck out before...

Steelers’ training camp week one; Reading the tea leaves

One of my favorite expressions and an easily over-used cliche of mine is ‘reading the tea leaves.’ I really believe in the days of 24/7 media and sports hype, people often say or do things that are not quite on point so we are left to decipher exactly what they are getting at. Thus, we must read the tea leaves, or, figure or what the future holds on our own. As the Pittsburgh...

2012 Steelers training camp, July 29, recap (pics included) – David DeCastro, Keenan Lewis minor injuries

No rain was forecasted for the first time in days at St. Vincent College as the day was again filled with some scuffles between players. The coaches are quick to break it up but so far this camp is very physical and tempers flare quickly.  Today there was an emphasis on the passing drills to start out but then very run oriented for the rest of practice. Lineups continue to be rotated...

Batch v. Rainey; The battle is on

I’m going to jump right to the conclusion here. I said in my training camp roster throwdown report on running backs that both of Baron Batch and Chris Rainey would make the 53-man roster. If I spoiled it for you, you have my deepest apologies. Already into the fifth day of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2012 training camp and while there are many story-lines that include the word ‘Wallace...
