Pickin’ Ain’t Easy

Pickin' your nose is easy. Pickin' NFL rosters is another thing alltogether....

Tough business, this final roster projection stuff. I tried my hand at it the other day and only got 45 out of 53 right. In the major leagues, that works out to an average of .849 and, while that would be extraordinary in baseball, it’s lukewarm when it comes to NFL roster predictions. Of course, maybe its THE STEELERS who got it wrong and not me. Ever think about that? Pickin’ your nose is easy. Pickin’ NFL rosters is another thing alltogether…. That’s probably not the case, but there were a few misses here that I am particularly disappointed about and I’d like to talk about them for a second. First, though, here is where I got it wrong: * I predicted running back Stephen Houston would make the cut, but he did not. They only kept four running backs and opted instead to keep an extra offensive lineman, that […]

My Stab At The Steelers Final 53 Man Roster

Quarterback (3) – Ben Roethlisberger, Bruce Gradkowski, Landry Jones Personally, I would like them to just go with two QBs here as I don’t think Jones has earned a roster spot, but I suspect Tomlin and Co will be reluctant to throw in the towel on him already.  Running Back (5) – Le’Veon Bell, LeGarrette Blount, Dri Archer, Will Johnson, Stephen Houston Keeping just four here is a possibility, but with the “Doobie Brothers” possibly facing a team-imposed suspension, they’ll likely go with five.  Wide Receiver (6) – Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton, Lance Moore, Martavis Bryant, Justin Brown, Darrious Heyward-Bey The Steelers could conceivably just keep five here and, if so, Heyward-Bey would likely be the odd man out. However, recent comments by Tomlin indicate he’s really pleased with Heyward-Bey, particularly considering he has been contributing on special teams.  Tight End (3) – Heath Miller, Matt Spaeth, Rob Branchflower The […]

With His Mind On Todd Haley And Todd Haley On His Mind

Snoop Dogg and Tomlin

  No doubt the Rooneys, Tomlin and Colbert are holed up in a dark room at the team’s South Side headquarters, pouring over this video and reconsidering their options at OC:   You can’t blame the Dogg, really – last night was bad. Really bad. Like smoke four blunts (blounts?) bad. I’m just not sure last night was Todd Haley’s fault. Maybe the Dogg should have started by calling out Bell and Blount for getting caught……..never mind.

Steelers vs Eagles: Not-Ready-For-Prime-Time

Troy being restrained by teammates. Wonder what happened??

The goods news is the Steelers most definitely did not look like an 8-8 team tonight. The bad news is they looked more like a 5-10 team. Ok, that may be a bit much. Call it a 3-13 team. Here are my observations from what was an absolutely brutal night of football for the Steelers: * Le’Veon Bell laid out by Demeco Ryans. Didn’t see any smoke come out of his helmet. Maybe it knocked a little sense in to him. * Interesting that Justin Brown got the start in this game. After he  blew his route during that first series Tomlin and Haley went ballistic on him. * Mike Mitchell might want to think about wrapping up. Completely botched that tackle going for a big hit on Brent Celek, then did it a second time. * Haley and Roethlisberger are clearly trying to feed Markus Wheaton early and they’re […]

“Ring The Bell, Roll The Blount” Taken A Little Too Literally

Just when you thought the Steelers were having an outstanding preseason…… Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount were arrested today for possession of marijuana after their car was pulled over by Ross Township police. Bell also bagged a DUI for his troubles, so it was an especially productive afternoon for him. The arrest came only a couple of hours before the team was scheduled to fly to Philadelphia for tomorrow’s preseason game. I might be mistaken, but I believe this is a first offense for both (I know it is for Bell), so a suspension is unlikely, but each will now be subject to more rigorous testing under the NFL’s substance abuse program. How will the Steelers respond? When Santonio Holmes was pulled over and charged with possession a few years back, Tomlin sent him home and forced him to sit out the next game. It’s possible he’ll look to do […]

Guess Who’s Back In Circulation!?

I mean, how do you not love this guy!?

Yep, the Bearded One is back. Have to say I’m a little surprised as I thought it was a bit of a long shot given how well some of the young DE’s fared in camp. Stephon Tuitt appears to be exactly as advertised, Nick Williams had an excellent camp and undrafted rookie Josh Mauro was one of the biggest surprises in Latrobe this summer. I mean, how do you not love this guy!? If you assume that the Steelers only keep five defensive ends and the “Cams” (Heyward and Thomas) and Tuitt are shoe-ins, then either Williams or Mauro will likely get cut to make room for Keisel. Just a hunch, but I think Mauro was impressive enough in camp to get the nod over Williams. We’ll see, though. There are some who will gripe that they would prefer the Steelers keep the younger player in Williams or Mauro over […]
