Heisman winner Smith looking to revive career

Former Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith is hoping to revive his NFL career with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Smith hasn't played in the NFL since being cut by the San Francisco 49ers following the 2010 season. He last played with the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League.

Smith will have to beat out veterans Byron Leftwich and Charlie Batch to make the team, but he says he's up to the challenge. Smith captured the Heisman in 2006 after leading Ohio State to a spot in the national championship game.

The 27-year-old Smith says he's not sure why his career hasn't panned out, but doesn't view his Heisman win as a burden because of all the doors it opened for him on both a personal and professional level.

“Battle of the bulge”: Steelers McLendon vs Ta’amu vs Hampton


*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***


As we remember our soldiers this past Memorial Day weekend, I was thinking also about a topic to write about. I tend to do that a lot, multi tasking.  While surfing through Google (man Mr. Google is amazing isn’t he?) I came across some information and quotes on Steelers 3rd yr NT Steve McLendon. However before going any further let’s be clear, by referencing a military topic in the title of this piece, I’m not insinuating that any Steeler or NFL player on any other team should be referred to as a “soldier” or “warrior”. One of our good friends, Craig Wolfley, is very keen to that fact. His son is currently serving in the military, something he is very proud of. No sports player anywhere should be referred with those monikers. Our fighting men and women, both present and past, are the real hero’s and warriors to be proud of.
Still though when you look at the Steelers current group of nose tackles; McLendon, Hampton, and Steve McLendon ...

Pittsburgh Steelers Preparing to Avenge Playoff Shocker

With the start of the 2012 NFL season still 104 days away, the Pittsburgh Steelers are hard at work during OTA sessions. The Steelers are still in shock from last year’s early exit from the playoffs are looking to bounce back this season. Ironically, starting things off with a little revenge on the team responsible for their early exit, the Denver Broncos.
Fans still cringe at the thought of that shocking overtime defeat handed to them by Tim Tebow and the Broncos, with the sight of Demetrius Thomas breaking away from cornerback Ike Taylor and safety Ryan Mundy for the 80-yard game winning touchdown etched into their minds. Although Denver has since moved on from the unconventional ways of Tim Tebow, to future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning, who was released earlier in the year by the Indianapolis Colts. The sting from last year’s overtime defeat still lingers amongst players.
Pittsburgh still holds a certain level of disdain for that loss, many feel that the...

Your all time Steeler regret?

An interesting talker for a nice, lazy holiday. Personally, I'll have to put some thought into it, but I remember a Roethlisberger throw to Burress in the end zone against the Patriots in the 2004 AFCC, followed by a Bettis run for a yard. Then Cowher chooses not to go for it on fourth down. He took the field goal to go down 31-20. They don't get it, they're still down two touchdowns, and the Pats have the ball at their 2-yard line. They get it, they're kicking off down a touchdown. Is that a regret? I dunno...brings back some bad memories. Either way, enjoy the conversation! - nc

What is your all time Steeler regret...something you wish the organization did or didn't do, draft a player, sign a player or coaching move etc. My biggest Steeler regret is the organization not signing Rod Woodson and letting him walk in free agency. Rod went on to win a Super Bowl and I am happy for him for that but I still wished he was stay in Pittsburgh. He played with the Ravens, Niners and Raiders and had several more productive years in the NFL. Even if we moved him to safety like he was with Oakland. His instincts on the field were that good and he made the move to safety very easily....what is your biggest Steelers regret...
