Many so called experts seem to have it in their minds that the Steelers are in some sort of trouble heading into the 2012 season, and it’s not even into the summer yet. I’ve heard everything from drafting...

Remembering Ron Erhardt

Ron Erhardt died this week at the age of 80. A lot of people in the football world will mourn this loss as will a pocket full of fans who remember him as a guy that directed the New York Giants offense to two Super Bowl wins.

The one free agent the Steelers should be targeting: Jerricho Cotchery

Before we get on to the topic at hand we should note that with the 49ers signing of free agent Mario Manningham, there isn’t much left for the Steelers Mike Wallace.  The hoopla at the start of free agency, with all the suitors that he would have banging down his door at 4pm on March 13th;  is all just an afterthought now. The Steelers appear, for the time being at least, pretty...

Keenan Lewis’ situation may not be as cut and dry as other Steelers RFA’s.

The speculation of who was getting tendered is over now as the Steelers have made their decisions with Mike Wallace and the rest of their restricted players. We talked about Mike Wallace, Doug Legursky, Ramon Foster, and Ryan Mundy previously but Keenan Lewis is possibly a different story.

The Steelers know what they’re doing with Foster, Legursky, and Mundy.

Nobody is surprised that Mike Wallace received a first round offer from the Steelers. The fact that Doug Legursky, Ramon Foster, and Ryan Mundy received draft round offers though (along with Keenan Lewis & David Johnson) shouldn’t be a total shock either. It’s not a reflection on their importance to the team, but rather a business decision in the cut throat industry that...
