Mike Adams still first in line to start at Left Tackle

With the return of Max Starks to the Steelers many are questioning who will be the starting Left Tackle.  It still looks though as if there will not be a question to who the starter is.  Starks basically answered that question for us in an interview with WDVE.  Starks plans to start the preseason […]


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 […]


Max Starks plans to be ready by mid July

Max Starks tweeted that his rehab is going well and hopes to be ready by July.  That is good news for Starks.  He can get into someone’s camp and make an impact on a team.  Could that team be the Steelers?  It is possible but it will depend on the draft.

The Steelers head into […]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cV448r5f2qI”>Sanders

The Steelers go into the offseason with no Left Tackle.  The most important position on the line is vacant at the moment.  Max Starks is having ACL surgery so he is out of the picture for the moment.  He is also a Free Agent so he was not a given anyways.  Jonathan […]


Max Starks to Have ACL Surgery

Steelers Offensive Tackle Max Starks is scheduled to have surgery on his torn ACL.  Starks was injured against the Broncos and did not play in the second half.  Starks will be an unrestricted free agent moving forward.  This is not good news for Starks as he struggled with weight issues when he injured his neck […]

Coach Tomlin Needs to Grow a Pair When It Comes to Ben Roethlisberger

I have a little beef with Coach Tomlin right now about Ben Roethlisberger.  I am fine with him getting the start which he should have.  This game was too important not to have him start.  Later in the game though you have to grow a pair and take the man out.  Whether he […]


10 Observations from Steelers at 49ers

The Steelers came out and laid an egg last night.  They only put up 3 points on the board and gave up 20.  They looked flat from the first minute on.  The team tried to keep in the game but one big mistake on almost every drive on both offense and defense kept San Francisco […]
