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...

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...

2012 Steelers training camp, July 28, recap of feisty day in Latrobe (pics included)

For the second time so far in Steelers training camp this year, rain started coming down in buckets just after practice finished. The afternoon workout ran a little past 5pm until the lightening started and the rain came shortly afterward. Very spirited outing today with a couple scuffles between players during the 11 on 11 drills especially. Willie Colon got into it with Lawrence...

SteelDad’ Rants and Slants Version 4

Kicking Off First off, congratulations to Steelers’ Wideout Antonio Brown who has reportedly signed a contract extension with the team. Brown becomes one of the rare players in Steelers’ history to be extended with more than a year left on his current deal. At 5 years, $42 million, I’d say Brown is in line to be a Steeler for life which is just fine by me. I remember watching...

Antonio Brown gets new 5 yr contract; what it means for Mike Wallace now

It’s training camp for the Steelers and that means, yep you guessed, contract extensions!  This is the time of year when the Steelers typically do the majority of their veteran contract work. Whether it’s a brand new deal or an extension for a player soon to enter free agency, from late July through the end of August you typically see several players get new deals. Such is the...

2012 Steelers training camp, July 27 recap (pics included)

The morning practice was again closed to the public, as is the norm at St. Vincent college so there normally isn’t much to report until the afternoon workouts that start at 2:55pm each day. Players also don’t tweet as much as they normally do because camp is a serious time and they are focused on their playbooks, film study, meetings, etc. Especially now with a new offense to...

Steelers partial owner interested in purchasing the Cleveland Browns

This story is taking the city of Cleveland by storm , and the Steeler Nation is following this now as well. According to an article published today, Randy Lerner,  owner of the Cleveland Browns is in talks with Steelers minority owner James Haslam about the future of the team. One has to wonder what the Rooney’s think of this,  although you’d have to assume that it’s been...

Wallace this, Wallace that…it’s time to end this pointless conflict

If there’s one thing that I just can’t stand, it’s drama surrounding the Steelers. The whole Ben Roethlisberger saga is long gone now and rather than concentrating on just what’s going on in camp, Mike Wallace continues to drive the fans of Pittsburgh to talk about him. While I’m sure that’s not solely his intent by any means, it’s an affect nonetheless.If you’ve...

Denver Broncos; Peyton Manning close to making his debut, Steelers will be ready

 Peyton Manning has reported to Broncos training camp, and the 36 year-old quarterback will be making his Broncos debut very soon. The NFL regular season is just over a month away, but the preseason is almost here. Manning and the Broncos play at Chicago in their first preseason game. Even though the Bears have a great defense, I doubt Manning plays longer than one or two series...

Starting rotations will change as Steelers training camp unfolds

As a Steeler fan, if you know anything about Mike Tomlin, you know not to read into his comments. He says what he says and that’s that. Trying to analyze his statements can make your head spin so it’s best not to try it very often unless you’re jonesin’ for a couple of Excedrin. He’s a straight shooter who won’t tell you anymore than he feels you need to know. By those...

Contract talks suspended with Mike Wallace & Steelers

Word came out of training camp this afternoon, per Ed Bouchette of the PIttsburgh Post Gazette that the Steelers are going to suspend any further contract talks with wide receiver Mike Wallace until he signs his one year tender and reports to camp. You knew this was coming sooner or later because the Steelers are not a team that will be bullied into a deal they aren’t comfortable...
