Looking down as the players warm up

After a big night in front of a huge crowd for the annual night practice event on Friday, today’s workouts started out without much drama or fanfare. That’s just the way Mike Tomlin would prefer it too. Even though he enjoys the event each year, he’s always been a coach that would rather leave the …

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 …

Rainey works on the big bag, no pun intended, "big bertha"

For the second time so far in Steelers training camp this year, rain started coming down in buckets just after practice finished.

On the Steelers; Christmas came early for Kugler

Ask any National Football League position coach and they’ll tell you that draft day can be one filled with extreme highs and extreme lows. If you’re the running backs coach for example and your team doesn’t draft a running back it makes for a long three days. If you’re the offensive line coach of the …

Steelers’ Willie Colon: 320 lbs of educated, big nasty!

The Steelers have finally moved Willie Colon to guard. After seven years in the league, i think Willie has been expecting this move for a while as it seems Willie and i have talked about a possible move to guard ever since he came to the Burgh. I chatted up the “320lbs of educated Big Nasty” when …

On the Steelers; More run? More pass? Who knows?

If you’ve been reading anything into the comments by members of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offense recently then you’d be excused for thinking we may be running the wing-t or full house offense in 2012. Of course you could also be excused if you think new offensive coordinator Todd Haley has brought in ‘run ‘n shoot’ …

Don’t read too much into the Steelers OTA’s

The 2nd week of OTA’s for the Steelers this offseason raises more questions than answers. Honestly, that’s how it should be. These organized team activities are not training camp. This is not the time that you set your starting lineups for the coming season. It’s not a time to nail down your starting rotation on …
