SteelDad’s Rants and Slants; Version 6.0

Rants and Slants is SteelDad’s personal, weekly look at goings-on around the league and in the world in general. A ‘heavy’ emphasis is still on the Steelers however…. Kicking Off What an amazing and well-needed gesture by the Pittsburgh Steelers’ LaMarr Woodley who donated $60,000 to his former hometown school district. As you may know, Woodely …

Steelers’ offense a work in progress following loss to Eagles

The first preseason game of the 2012 National Football League season is in the books and while no one will remember the 24-23 score of the Philly win over the Steelers, there is a lot to take from the game and I’m focusing on the offense. New offensive coordinator Todd Haley unveiled his new scheme …

Ben being Ben, again

This is getting to be as routine as getting the oil changed or seeing another ridiculous political ad on TV. ‘This’ that I speak is my annual article imploring all of you and myself included to take Steelers’ Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger with a grain of salt. Every season it seems Big Ben announces to us …

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 …

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 in it’s own right, however 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’ 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 …

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 …

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 …

2012 Pittsburgh Steelers training camp roster throwdowns: specialists

Did you really think we at steeleraddicts would just give position battles for the offense and defense? Heck no! Football has three phases not two. In our final edition of the 2012 roster throwdowns we take a look at the men on special teams. The kickers, the punters, the return men and even the long …

2012 Pittsburgh Steelers training camp roster throwdowns: defensive line

www.gamedaygoods.com

  While many of us out there in the Steeler Nation use the term, ‘Steel Curtain’ to describe our defense, in my opinion there will always be just the one of the 1970’s. Mean Joe Greene, LC Greenwood, Ernie Holmes and Dwight White will forever be linked to that name and rightfully so. Part of …
