It’s impossible to measure a guy’s success based on one game or even a handful of games over a career in the National Football League, but it’s hard not to notice the success, or lack thereof, by Denver Broncos’ QB Peyton Manning against the 3-4 defense. It really is impossible because Manning has had good …

Anytime you see a score of 38-7 you think, “man, what a blowout!” Let’s remember however this is the preseason and that in the instance of first team vs. first team it was really only 14-7 so keep things in perspective my friends. Obviously, the biggest news is the worst news from last night as …

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 …

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 …

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 …
