The return of the 4 prodigal sons is a big positive for the 2010 Steelers.

    Quote of the week;

    Nobody works harder than Aaron Smith. He’s the consummate professional. I’ve often said he (Smith) is the Mike Webster of this generation in offering consistently superb play on a daily and weekly basis. He doesn’t have bad days, he IS bad days for others.

    A couple days ago, Aaron, sweaty, hot and tired after chasing Dennis Dixon in [...]

      There’s two special players in camp that I’m really looking forward to watching in the pre-season. Steelers rookie wide receiver tandem of Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown. So far they are meeting the expectation level of their position coaches and gaining ground in their knowledge of the system.

      But everyday in camp is a new [...]

        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 [...]

          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 [...]

                  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 [...]
