Steelers Select Curtis Brown in the Third Round

The Steelers came back at the end of the third round and picked up Curtis Brown Cornerback out of Texas.  Brown is a kid that the Steelers showed much interest in.  He made a visit to the facilities on the South Side and the Steelers visited him at his Pro Day.  Brown […]


Steelers Select Marcus Gilbert in the Second Round

The Steelers selected Florida Offensive Tackle Marcus Gilbert with  pick 63 in the NFL Draft.  The Steelers tried to use the same tactics as yesterday to get the guy they needed but it didn’t work as well today.  The Texans traded 2 picks in front of them to get Miami Cornerback Brandon […]


Steelers Second Round Analysis

The Steelers bulked up their Defensive Line yesterday by selecting Cameron Heyard in round one.  Now the question is what do they do with their pick in round 2?  There are many options out there but the Steelers main need area is cornerback.

There are 4 Cornerbacks on the board still that the Steelers have […]


Steelers First Round Pick Profile: Cameron Heyward

The Steelers struck gold with a steal in the first round.  Heyward had the ability to go much higher in the draft but slid a little like many of the other big name prospects in the draft with the push on QB’s.  You won’t hear me complain about it though.  Getting Heyward is more than […]


Steelers Select Cameron Heyward

The newest Steeler also happens to have some excellent bloodlines.

At the end of  a crazy first round where major names fell, quarterbacks were being drafted as if they were made of gold, and Baltimore was involved in a ridiculous passing situation, the Steelers stood pat and let the players that they coveted simply […]

2011 NFL Draft


Most believe Steelers will choose Aaron Williams at draft

I feel as if I have been fighting an uphill battle for weeks.  The major consensus around the league and around the area is that the Steelers will select Aaron Williams-Cornerback/Safety out of Texas.  I have been highly against this pick from the beginning.

Williams is going to be a safety in the NFL but […]


And just like that, Penguins season is over

It seemed almost poetic that the Penguins season ended on an unconverted power play last night.  They looked so sharp in the first period, to end up being shut out on home ice in Game 7.  It’s been heartbreaking, watching a 3-1 series lead slip through our hands, and the final crushing blow […]


Final Complete First Round Mock Draft

This is my best guess at what could happen in the NFL Draft tonight.  I made some trades and took a look at different scenarios.  With the lack of player movement due to no CBA the trades are few and far between.  Quarterbacks run ramped with 6 going in the first round.  Defensive Line owns […]


Steelers Need to Draft as if Ike Taylor Will Not be Back

The Steelers need to draft tomorrow under the assumption that Ike Taylor will not be returning to the team.  Ike is a loyal guy and has done a tremendous job and good work while with the Steelers but his agent seems to think that the Steelers are not going to be able to keep Ike […]


Steelers Final Draft Board

Here is my final Draft board for the Steelers.  There are guys who are highly rated on this board who will not make it to the Steelers pick.  I went with guys who I thought we could maybe make it all the way up to with a trade.  I have some of these guys rated […]


Hines Ward will be dancing for another week

Hines Ward has made it into the top 6 on Dancing with the Stars.  Ward and partner Kym Johnson were the third team to be declared safe in last night’s show.  After having a score of 27 out of 30 from the judges on Monday night for the Vietnamese Waltz they did to Boys II […]


Steelers Can NOT Trade Up Until Pouncey is Off the Board

Mike Pouncey may have  put the Steelers into another predicament in the draft.  His willingness to show his love to the Steelers needs to be reciprocated if he is still on the board.  I do not expect to see him on the board when the Steelers draft but he may still be on the board […]


Lightning defeat Penguins 4-2, force Game 7

Another devastating loss last night by the Penguins in Tampa Bay.  It just seemed that we couldn’t catch a break to save our lives.  The Pens offense just looked pathetic, particularly on the power plays, of which we had 5.  During a couple of the power plays you wouldn’t have known we were […]
