Steelers Release Jonathan Scott, More Money Open for Wallace

In a move that was basically inevitable the Steelers released Jonathan Scott.  Scott was awful last season and was projected to make 2.2 million dollars this year.  The Steelers have only kept him on the roster this long because they had no other option.  Once Max Starks resigned with the team that gave the Steelers […]


Trai Essex and Jonathan Scott to compete with Mike Adams, Starks not contacted

The Steelers have a vacant left tackle position at the moment.  The best bet is that Mike Adams is going to fill that void.  He will have competition at that spot according to Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review.  Veterans Jonathan Scott and Trai Essex will compete with Adams for the starting spot.

I […]


Report: Salary Cap expected to be $120.6 Million

Jay Glazer is reporting that the NFL salary cap announced Monday will be $120.6 million.  The Steelers will also have the $500k they did not spend on last years cap to use.  That will give them $121.1 million to spend.  The Steelers by my count are at roughly $111 million at this point.  That gives […]

Marcus Gilbert is Permanently the Steelers Right Tackle

Coach Tomlin let out a little nugget today in his press conference.  When the Steelers play the Browns this week Tomlin was talking about his biggest match ups in the game.  One he brought up specifically was Marcus Gilbert vs. Jabaal Sheard.  While speaking of the match up Tomlin made note of Gilbert being […]


Without Roethlisberger There is NO Starks for Steelers

If not for Ben Roethlisberger’s push the Steelers would still be without Max Starks and without a Left Tackle.  The team started off the season with Jonathan Scott at left tackle.  Roethlisberger was getting killed and that needed to change.  The team needed something better out on the blind side.

That is where Roethlisberger […]


The Steelers Kept the Wrong Offensive Tackle in the Offseason

When the offseason actually started after the CBA was completed the Steelers had to make some decisions on what Offensive Linemen to keep and which ones to let go.  Max Starks was overweight and due a large amount of money.  Willie Colon was coming off a torn achilles.  Jonathan Scott played ok in his time […]

Starks Takes First Team Reps on First Day Back with Steelers

It did not take long for Max Starks to head back to the first team.  During practice on Wednesday Starks took about half of the first team reps.  He split time with Jonathan Scott who returned to practice after an ankle injury.

Starks weighs 352.  That is 60 pounds less then what he came to […]

Thursday Injury Report: Steelers at Texans

The Steelers shrunk the injury report today.  They removed some of the guys off of list but there is no way all these guys got healthy in one day.  The list is still long and there was one new addition from yesterday’s list.  Steve McClendon has been added with an illness.  He should be fine […]


Wednesday Injury Report: Steelers at Texans

I am back and the baby is looking good.  The size of his feet and arms say Left Tackle which is just what the Steelers need but we will see what happens.  The Steelers are hurting heading into Houston.  Not one person on the offensive line is not suffering from some type of injury.  The […]


Don’t look for upgrades to Steelers offensive line

While I will never understand why the Steelers insist on having a mediocre line that will inevitably help to shorten our franchise quarterback’s career, that trend is to continue.  In Coach Tomlin’s press conference yesterday he made it very clear that they intend to continue with what they currently have.

“Make no mistake, we intend […]
