Steelers LB Sean Spence Can Use Pitt LB Dan Mason As Inspiration

We have known now for several months that Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Sean Spence did damage to his peroneal nerve when he tore up his knee last year in the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers. Despite the long odds, however, Spence said on Wednesday that he intends on playing in 2013. "I know a lot of people have not been able to come back after damage like that,...

Dan Mason Ascending

Back in 2009 we PITT fans eagerly awaited Penn Hill’s linebacker Dan Mason’s field debut as a Panther and it wasn’t too long before we were able to see what he could do. Mason, a four star recruit who was on everyone’s All-Everything lists, verballed early to PITT and impressed the staff enough that he was in the two-deep at Middle Linebacker coming out of summer training camp. He...

Football Notes — 8/15

We went and visited family in Eastern PA this weekend. The drive back was excruciatingly long. It wasn’t traffic. It wasn’t the weather. It was just one of those trips — if you have kids you probably have a better understanding — where there was always another reason/need to stop. Continual bathroom breaks.

Pittsburgh Linebacker Nasty Knee Injury

There isn’t much to see right now in the Pittsburgh vs. Miami game as the Hurricanes have dominated the Panthers from the opening snap and lead 17-3 in the fourth quarter.  Overall, it’s been a pretty boring game.  If gnarly injuries are your thing and you’re watching this game, you probably woke up when Pittsburgh linebacker Dan Mason went down with a gruesome-looking knee injury...
