Still no word on Jaromir Jagr

So, after spending all day yesterday on “Jagr Watch” there has still been no word from the Penguins or Jagr’s camp.  I feel like we are reliving the LeBron James saga from last year.  So help me if Jagr does an hour long special on ESPN and then tells us that he’s taking his talents […]

Pens sign Dupuis, offer Jagr one year deal

It was announced yesterday that the Penguins signed winger Pascal Dupuis to a two year deal worth $3 Million dollars.  Which puts him at $1.5 million against this years cap and only a slight raise from last year’s $1.4 million.  Originally Ray Shero tried to offer a one year deal but Dupuis wanted more than […]

Steelers sticking with St. Vincent training camp for now

2012 NFL Draft Prospects: Wide Receiver and Tight End

This years draft class has a good group of Wide Receivers in it.  There is not an A.J. Green in the group but it does have a good bit of talent that could land in round 1.  This is also a very large class with only two of the top rated prospects under 6 feet […]

James Harrison Named 21st on NFL Top 100

Steelers Linebacker James Harrison was named the 21st overall player on the NFL Top 100 list.  That is a great honor to be given to you by your peers.  Harrison is very deserving of the honor and I think he landed just about in the right spot.  With the guys that are left on the […]

NHL Releases 2011-2012 schedule

The day after the NHL awards they keep it coming with the announcement of the full team schedules.  The Penguins open the season on October 6th at Vancouver and continue with two more away games before coming home on October 11th against Florida for the home opener.  I would say it’s interesting that we don’t […]

Dan Bylsma wins Jack Adam’s Award

Last night at the NHL Awards in Las Vegas, Penguins Coach Dan Bylsma took home the Jack Adam’s Award for coach of the year.  It is a much deserved honor as Bylsma dealt with a sleugh of injuries throughout the season and finishing the season strong missing his top two players Crosby and Malkin.  Despite […]

Suggs responds to Woodley’s comments about Flacco

Still a little over 11 weeks away from week one of the season, if there is a season and there has already been so much smack talk between the rivals.  Granted LaMarr Woodley started it with his comments about Flacco but it continues to snow ball.   Yesterday on a Baltimore radio station Terrell Suggs had […]

Roethlisberger wants Plaxico Burress back

In an interview yesterday Ben was asked about how he would feel about having Plaxico come back to the Steelers.  If you’ll remember Plaxico was in Pittsburgh during Ben’s rookie season.  Burress played in only 11 games and 10 with Ben under center, but Roethlisberger connected with him 34 times […]

More Tiki to The Steelers Talk

Rumors keep spreading that Tiki Barber is going to be a Steeler.  Lets hope they are just that, RUMORS.  There is no spot on this team for Tiki Barber.  The Steelers have the ability to sign Mwelde Moore back to the roster who is a better option and they drafted Baron Batch to become the player […]

Flacco responds to Woodley’s comments

A couple weeks ago LaMarr Woodley was on the NFL Network and was asked whether or not Raven’s quarterback Joe Flacco would ever lead his team to a Super Bowl.  His reply was priceless and what every Steeler fan wants to hear:

“No, not at all because they have to go through one […]

What is with Pete Prisco’s Vendetta Against Troy Polamalu?

Did Troy Polamalu steal Pete Prisco’s ball as a child?  It sure does seem like it.  In the last two off seasons PP, yeah lets call him PP it sounds fitting, has written about his over rated players in the NFL.  This article states how overrated Polamalu is.  Last season I wrote an post on […]
