Pete Prisco wrote an article on the most overrated and underrated players on each team.

His choice for overrated player on our team was Troy Polamalu. Is this guy just stupid or does he not understand the game of football? His reasoning was he gets hurt. Great reasoning you idiot.

Polamalu only played in 5 […]


Checking the Fallout of the Pat Skerry Hire

With Pat Skerry now officially on-board as the new Pitt Assistant Coach for a full 24 hours, it is time to assess what fallout this move has for Pitt, Providence, and Northeastern basketball in general.  Before moving onto the ever important (and entertaining) recruiting chatter though, it is worth noting that Skerry’s new official title […]


Someone Please Tell Bailey He is Getting Cut

Patrick Bailey is beyond my reasoning right now.  He has been a role player on a special teams unit that was not very good last year.  The Steelers drafted 3 linebackers this year.  They will all be contributors on special teams.  That means there is very good chance he will not make the squad this […]


Pittsburgh Lands 2010-2011 Winter Classic

The NHL announced today that the Pittsburgh Penguins will host the Washington Capitals in next season’s Winter Classic. The game is scheduled to be played on New Years Day at Heinz Field, weather permitting.

It was speculated back in March that Crosby and Ovechkin, the two biggest names in the NHL, would square off in […]


Roethlisberger Cleared to Practice, Goodell Still Has Nothing Better to Do Than Harass Ben

PFT is reporting that Ben Roethlisberger is cleared to practice starting next week.  Roethlisberger is still going to have to meet with Commisioner Goodell at a later date, and Goodell will also monitor what Roethlisberger is up to while evaluating how long his suspension will actually be.

Welcome back, Big Ben.  Get down to […]


Skerry is It for Pitt

Only a day after word leaked out that Pat Skerry was the leading candidate for the vacant Pitt assistant coach position, it appears that the deal is set to be completed. Skerry has accepted the position today, saying that

he had a “great opportunity that was tough to turn down.”

to Kevin McNamara of the […]


Gulbis Still Thinks Ben is a Good Guy

Former girlfriend of Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Natalie Gulbis still believes Roethlisberger is a “great guy.”  The Post Gazette is reporting that Gulbis, who was at the Oakmont Country Club warming up for the U.S. Womens Open, stopped and talked to the media about Roethlisberger for a while but quickly tired of the questioning.

[…]


Pouncey Injures Foot

Steeler first round pick Maurkice Pouncey went down in today’s practice with an injury to his left foot, specifically his toes, but fortunately the injury is not said to be serious.

It is doubly unfortunate due to the fact that Pouncey took his first snaps at center today with the second team, […]


Pitt Drops Big East Tournament Opener 9-5

The Pitt baseball team was looking to be in great shape to make the NCAA Regional tournament last week before dropping their final series against USF.  Now, things have gotten even more difficult as the Panthers dropped their Big East tournament opener to Rutgers by the score of 9-5.  The Panthers are still alive in […]


That Ol’ Pitt Assistant Shuffle – Pat Skerry Edition

After two weeks of hearing mostly midwestern names for the Pitt assistant coach position in the wake of Dave Leitao reportedly declining the Panthers’ offer, it appears that Jamie Dixon’s eyes have finally turned back to the East Coast.  Providence’s Pat Skerry is now the leading candidate for the position, with that “word on the […]


There is Hope for a Super Bowl in Steeltown

After yesterday’s announcement that the 2014 Super Bowl will be played in New York (rather the Meadowlands in New Jersey), there is a glimmer of hope that the city of Pittsburgh could one day see a Super Bowl played at Heinz Field.

There will be many teams who will throw their hat into the ring […]


Neil Walker To Start, Bat Second

With Andy LaRoche still battling his back injury, the Pirates are going to turn to former first round pick Neil Walker in tonight’s game in Cincinnati.  Walker has been tearing this up in AAA this season to the tune of .321/.392/.560, so this is a welcome opportunity for the 24 year old out of Pine-Richland […]


Inside the CONSOL Energy Center

With this season behind us, I thought it was time to look to the future.  No better way to do that than to take a look at the place that the Pens will be calling home for many, many years to come.   The CONSOL Energy Center is pretty much across Centre Avenue on […]


Daddy Still Hasn’t Decided

It looks like Big Ben wont be joining his teammates again at this week’s OTAs.  Commisioner Goodell still has not decided on whether or not Roethlisberger has fulfilled his punishment so he is keeping Ben out of practice in shorts again this week.

NOTE: It was announced today that the decision will come within […]


Penguins Rumors Begin

The Pittsburgh Penguins’ ended a mere couple of weeks ago, but the rumors are already surfacing as we move towards the highly anticipated offseason.

In a recent post, I made mention of all the Penguins UFAs and my thoughts on whether or not we should keep them. My biggest fear was over paying for Gonchar, […]
