    Tunch was talking to Hines Ward on the WDVE “Hines Ward” radio show a couple weeks ago. One of the most compelling stories Hines shared was the reason why the Carolina Panthers fought so hard in their Thursday night game at Heinz Field against the Steelers despite a lousy season and with the thought of [...]

      Powerful Mojo

      On January 6, 2011 By

      Every week for the last three months Mike Tomlin has reported that Aaron Smith is “one week closer” to getting back on the field.

      As of this moment Aaron hasn’t gone through a full practice, but the fact that Coach Mike has kept a “seat on the bus” for Aaron says three things;

      1. It [...]

        Everybody’s Got A Plan

        Just how intimidating is Steelers linebacker James Harrison?

        During the Browns game last Sunday, a play began to unfold in front of me as i watched from the sidelines with a great deal of interest. Browns WR Mohammad Massaquoi was split towards the Steelers sidelines and began with much verve to go in motion towards [...]

          One of the great things about my job as the sideline non-combatant for the Steelers Radio Network is the ability to watch players up close, just as i did when i was one of those players.

          Along the sidelines or “mudville” as i like to call the bench area, there’s always something happening.

          It could [...]

            Wisdom From the Big Chair

            On December 31, 2010 By

            I’ve often talked about one of my all-time favorite coaches that i’ve had the good fortune to play for. He had great wisdom, and could teach the game. He also was fun to be around. I love him dearly to this day.

            The man i’m referring to was my offensive line coach through most of [...]

              Steelers Ryan Mundy

              On December 28, 2010 By

              Troy Polamalu has the thing going on in his lower leg. According to Coach Mike, Troy is getting better and Friday will be the determining factor as to whether Troy participates in the Cleveland game.

              If Troy is getting better over the two weeks that he’s out, what about making it five weeks? Sounds good [...]

                A Little Dab’ll Do You

                On December 27, 2010 By

                Merry Christmas everybody! I hope everybody had a great weekend and remembered “the Reason for the Season.”

                Now to get a little “Grinch-like.”

                I have to revisit the Jet-Steelers game of two weeks ago at Heinz Field.

                I’m still trying to get into my gourd how referee Pete Morelli fumbled his flag three times in [...]

                  Egregious is a word that’s been bandied about the NFL these days to describe some of the hits and thusly the follow up fines handed down by NFL Grand Poo-Bah Ray Anderson.

                  On the same weekend as the Jets Sal Alosi participated in “Knee-gate” and got a suspension and a $25,000 fine, another more”egregious” foul occurred [...]

                    Steelers Beware

                    On December 21, 2010 By

                     During my playing career, i became aware around year 7 that i wasn’t recuperating from a game as fast as i did as when i was younger. The legs didn’t come around till Thursday when in the previous six years i was good to go on a Wednseday.

                    I have participated in at least three or [...]

                      Being One of the Boys

                      On December 15, 2010 By

                      I agree with former Dolphin linebacker Zack Thomas when he said that a wall was provided and ordered up from either special teams coach Mike Westhoff or Rex Ryan on a punt return against the Miami Dolphins.

                      In the Jets game against the Dolphins which everybody has seen, Strength and Conditioning Coach Sal Alosi stuck [...]
