Tonight’s finale in Carolina represents the last opportunity for 27 men to state their case for employment by the Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s the end of the journey seen through 27 different sets of eyes. By the weekend, the Steelers have to reduce their roster and the dreaded “turk,” the one to inform the player that [...]Continue Reading →
While doing some interviews for Steelers TV on the practice field after Coach Tomlin “Whistled it up,” i got a chance to say hello to Trai Essex, the lineman they just signed back in the fold.
Trai was all smiles, as well as he should be. Trai found himself in no-man’s-land after no takers in [...]Continue Reading →
I’m sitting in the hotel in Washington D.C. after traveling here with the Steelers entourage in preparation for tonight’s pre-season opener against the ‘Skins.
On the TV, last night, was the movie “Stripes” with Bill Murray and Harold Ramis. Immediately a flashback to the early 80′s came to mind.
Tunch Ilkin and I were jogging [...]Continue Reading →
Finally, after 10 or so days of training camp, we have a feeling of a little bit of flow. Normally after a week to 10 days, players find their “sea-legs.” Meaning that they start acclimating to the rigors of pads, hot weather and funny feeling beds.
Some of the young guns that are starting to [...]Continue Reading →
It’s the second day of pads in Latrobe and as i headed down the hill to the practice field from the dorms, a quick look at the Laurel mountains already spoke of a hot day coming up for the Steelers.
And as always my thoughts run to our oldest son serving in Afghanistan and the 100 degree [...]Continue Reading →
In the real first test of camp with pads on Mike Tomlin went to the old stand-by and crowd favorite. The linebackers pass rushing against the RB’s and TE’s, otherwise known as “backs-on-backers.”
In this drill the offensive player is forced to read whether the inside or outside linebacker to one side is coming. It’s [...]Continue Reading →
So just this morning Plaxico Burress signed on with the Jets. I can’t help but think that Bruce Arians had a little indigestion at breakfast. The thought of adding Plax to a WR quartet of Ward, Wallace, Sanders and Brown had to be very intriguing to the man behind the offense.
The same reach for [...]Continue Reading →
Every camp has it’s own unique twist to it. For instance there was the “Purge of ’84″ where the battle cry was “You can’t make the club in the tub” (meaning that there were too many injuries and guys were getting cut because of it) to this years version of a combined FreeAgency/Training Camp where long-term parking [...]Continue Reading →
I remember walking into the locker room at Saint Vincent’s College the day after a particular vicious two-a-day practice the day before. It was already suffocating humidity wise and it wasn’t even 9:00 am yet.
I knew from looking at the mountains surrounding Saint Vincent that it was to be a “Hold onto your keester [...]Continue Reading →
Mile High is mile high because it’s a stadium that sits at an altitude of a mile high in the shadows of the Rocky Mountains in Denver. That’s the dizzying logic i bring each and every day to the Locker Room with Tunch Ilkin on Foxsportsradio 970.
But the reality of the dizzying logic is in [...]Continue Reading →
