August, 2010 | Craig Wolfley Web Site and Podcast - Part 3

    It was a Steelers reunion in Canton Ohio. With the induction of Dick LeBeau and former Steelers Offensive line coach Russ Grimm, not only were the Pittsburgh Steelers there in full attendance, but several ex-Steelers came to pay their respects to the enshrinees.

    Ex-Steelers and current Cardinals Joey Porter, Clark Haggans and Alan Faneca paid [...]

      Things I’ve liked so far;

      I like the way the four prodigal sons have returned home. Byron Leftwich, Bryant McFadden, Antwaan Randle El and Larry Foote have all come back snorting, chomping at the bit, working hard and leading by example and ready to contribute, and mentor younger players.

      I like the spike upwards in the play [...]

        In February of 2006 the Pittsburgh Steelers go to Detroit for the biggest game of their lives, and the defensive unit step off the plane wearing a jersey with #44 on it.

        In August of 2007 the Pittsburgh Steelers travel to Canton, Ohio for the Hall of Fame game and the defensive unit again is wearing the [...]

          Maurkice Pouncey; looking like the number 1 he’s supposed to be. Excellent athlete who so far has shown that he can figure it out.

          Jason Worilds; Aggressive and hard working, got a hammie just when he needs to be on the field getting reps. Prior to injury, he was noticing that the offensive guys got stronger [...]

            The Steelers held a night practice “under the lights” at Latrobe High School and it was their first one in full battle regalia. You have to love the vibe when the Steelers hit the field in front of 12,000+ rabid Steelers fans.

            Things got hopping in the blitz drill known as backs on backers. Either [...]

              It was another hold onto your keester day at camp, but the hitting matched the weather throughout the afternoon practice.

              While watching internal running Maurkice Pouncey pulled down the line from his guard position and trapped the wang-dang-doodle out of some defensive lineman on the far side whose number i couldn’t get. All the elements were there, the low contact [...]

                If you had a set of gills you would have felt quite at home in Latrobe today. The humidity made you feel as if you were wearing a second skin. Anytine you can’t see the Laurel mountains clearly, it’s a hold onto your butt day as former Steelers and now Colts offensive coordinator Tom Moore [...]

                  Tunch Ilkin and I just finished out our second “In the Locker Room with Tunch and Wolf” broadcast and had special guests Director of Football Operations Kevin Colbert and Boss Hogg and Offensive line coach Sean Kugler, along with the “Voice” of the Pittsburgh Steelers Bill Hillgrove.

                  Kevin is always a great guest and delivers great insight to [...]

                    I think it was in my second year, maybe third in the league, when a young rookie nose tackle from Indiana University Pa. burst onto the scene in training camp. Then Steelers defensive line coach George Perlesgot so excited he couldn’t contain himself and trumpeted loudly before the media, “He’s a phenom!”

                    His name was Joe Cugliari, a big rough tough [...]

                      There’s a lot of “Smack-u-lation” going on up here at Saint Vincent. Three days into this camp and the Wolfley Smackulator is registering some great hits. Tunch has the “Tunch-istrator” where he diagrams plays on a TV screen so that you can connect the dots on a play. Being a relatively unskilled mook, I have the smackulator [...]
