Steelers Day 1 OTAs Recap

The Steelers opened up their first round of OTAs today.  As expected Mike Wallace was not in attendance.  Wallace was in town to meet with Mike Tomlin last week though and he got his playbook.  Wallace will wait as long as he can to sign his tender.  He can not wait that long though.  With […]

5 things to watch at Steelers OTAs

When the Steelers open up OTAs tomorrow they will be without 3 main players.  They have starter and Pro Bowler Mike Wallace out.  They also will be missing potential starters on the offensive line David DeCastro and Mike Adams.  Even with those guys out there will be plenty to watch.  The team is very young […]

The Steelers open up OTAs tomorrow.  A big part of their offense will be missing when they do.  Mike Wallace has yet to sign his RFA tender.  He is also not expected to be at OTAs according to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

The Steelers are in the early stages of a new offense.  This is […]

Training Camp Position Battles: Right Guard

The Steelers last major position battle going into training camp is at Right Guard.  This is a crammed battle that is going to heat up more then any other battle during camp.  We have already seen Trai Essex stomp on First Round pick Maurkice Pouncey’s toes to try and keep his job.  In all seriousness, […]

Training Camp Position Battles: 3rd Wide Receiver”>httpv://

With the departure of Santonio Holmes to the Jets, Mike Wallace is being forced into starting duty…he can handle it, but now we have a position open behind him.  The Steelers do not have many big options there, so it is the rookie vs. the vet with a sleeper in the mix also.

Training Camp Position Battles: Nickel Cornerback

On the Defensive side of the ball, the Steelers only have one real battle going on and that’s at Nickel Corner.  That battle is going to involve 4 players.  One of which is William Gay who was a starter last year, but he will most likely see a reduced role since the reacquiring of Bryant […]

Training Camp Position Battles: Center

There are four major battles for positions going to happen at this years training camp.  Center, Right Guard, 3rd Wide Receiver and Nickel Corner are all up for grabs.  I wish there was a fifth but the Quarterback  Battle while Ben Roethlisberger is out has been given to Byron Leftwich already.

Let’s start with Center.  […]

Steeler OTAs Start Backup

Steelers are back in the swing of off season training with OTAs resuming today.  Big Ben did not join the team as he is still suspended from all offseason activities including practices and meetings.  He will remain in timeout until Goodell deems Ben has calmed down and learned his lesson.  Most likely, this will not occur until […]
