Spence pick signals need for speed & tackling in ‘pass-happy’ NFL

Let’s be real clear here right up front. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ third round draft pick Sean Spence is not going to jump into the inside linebacker spot recently vacated by the great James Farrior. Perhaps someday this will happen, but I firmly believe Spence was drafted for immediate need on special teams and perhaps in …

LeBeau facing critical year in 2012

You can hardly blame anyone associated with the Pittsburgh Steelers for talking mostly about the offense during the offseason of 2012. After all, from red zone failures to Bruce Arians’ ‘retirement’ and the eventual hiring of Todd Haley, there has been much to discuss. I believe there is one guy in particular who has to …

Middle Linebacker perhaps not such an immediate need for Steelers?

There are two draft picks that everyone seems to have the Steelers interested in since the combine, if not before. Dontari Poe appears to get further and further out of sight by the day with many experts saying he’s a top 15 pick by now. The more realistic name is Dont’a Hightower, LB out of …

McFadden, Battle Cuts Are Only the Beginning for Steelers

Former singer Crystal Gayle was known as much for her hair as she was for her voice. Her long, straight hair went down the center of her back and at one time was nearly touching the floor. The latest rumors are that her hair has been cut to a much more appropriate length meaning it …

Foote, Randle El, & McFadden experiment

So among the players the Steelers brought back before the 2010 season started were former Linebacker Larry Foote, Wide Reciever Antwaan Randle El, and Cornerback Bryant McFadden.  This was an unpresidented move by the Kevin Colbert and the Steelers front office; they don’t normally bring back former players and certainly not that many. After William …
