Afternoon practice concludes

Ben Roethlisberger got a warm welcome from the several thousand Steelers fans gathered for Saturday afternoon's practice here at Saint Vincent College.

Roethlisberger admitted to not being sure how he'd be received in his first real exposure to the fans. But everything seemed to go well and he spent an extended period of time signing autographs following the session.

Roethlisberger again split some snaps with Byron Leftwich in the early team portion of the drills. But Leftwich took all the first-team snaps in the final session.

Running back Jonathan Dwyer left early with a hamstring injury, while nose tackle Casey Hampton sat out with a groin injury suffered this morning.

The team also got a scare when Mike Wallace came up limping after running a long route. But he returned and appears to be OK.

Rookies Maurkice Pouncey and Jason Worilds got their welcome to the NFL moments in one-on-one blocking/rushing drills.

Worilds was put on his back by tight end David Johnson one one backers on tight ends drill. This after being driven into the ground by Heath Miller earlier.

Worilds also had trouble keeping his feet throughout the drills and must work on that aspect of his game.

Tony Hills also tossed him around a couple of times.

In o-line/d-line drills, Ziggy Hood clubbed Pouncey to the ground in a meeting of No. 1 draft picks, prompting head coach Mike Tomlin to exclaim, "What a difference a year makes."

Tomlin had that pairing go against each other two more times after that, with Hood again besting Pouncey before Pouncey came back and held his ground the third time.

On a positive note, Thaddeus Gibson, the other rookie draft pick at linebacker, looked very good in pass rushing and taking on the tight end drills.

He looks strong at the point of attack.

James Harrison sent a message on the opening of the 11-on-11 passing drills, leveling Rashard Mendenhall on the first play.

Mendenhall bounced right back up, though.

Oh No. If Tony Hills can put him on his back then that is a problem. I hope its just a rookie mistake. We need him in the future.

Gonna take him time to transition from a 3 point stance to a 2 point stance.

Again, some people don't see everything and some only see what they want to see. Different take on Worilds from Ken Laird


In the camp's first 'backs on backers' drill Sunday (pitting on-rushing linebackers against stationary running backs looking to protect a dummy QB) the rookie OLBs looked impressive. Jason Worilds did so well, at one point Tomlin exclaimed, "Does anyone want to block #97?" Thaddeus Gibson also impressed, swimming past Rashard Mendenhall on one rep, then easily passing David Johnson on another. Later, Gibson pulled out slick inside speed moves to fool Mendenhall (again) and Frank Summers. One man did get the better of Gibson: Issac Redman. "Red," as he was called by Tomlin, locked up Thaddeus and dumped him to the ground in a heated exchange. Redman also was one of the few to hold off Worilds.

Wow, that is not just differring opinions. Those are two diametrically opposed views. It just goes to show you that you can't believe everything that is written.

Hmmm, okay the defense is doing well, but the backs can't pick up the blitz, isn't that a bad thing? :tt2

Ike- not to picky here- but...

I don't see how Goodell is a hypocrite??

Mike Logan? Ok.

Goodell? Not as far as I can tell.

Personally, if I saw Goodell... Given the piling on, towards Ben... I might suggest-
Show Me The Tapes. Meaning- where was your conduct policy regarding the Patriots??

But that might be too obtuse- so, I'd probably just go with something straight forward and simple.... like

You Suck!

just a thought.

Well the drill is designed to favor the defense so I don't think it is horrible ... but yeh, it would be nice if are backs could pick up the blitz.

Especially since Ben holds onto the ball so long. :stirpot

Well, there was a report of him escaping a William Gay blitz and hitting Ward for a first down during the two minute drill offense. If he had thrown it away we wouldn't have to worry about blitz pickup. :stirpot

Did you see Timmons blow up his guy? I predicting at least 12 sacks. From the ILB position that is tremendous.

A couple things:

1. There are many who will looking for Worilds to fail because he was not a big name coming into the draft. Therefore they are going look for every bad play Worilds has and will put him in a bad light every chance they get.

2. Some people aren't happy unless they are creating controversy to get the attention of readers.

3. Some people just don't know what they are seeing or talking about but they have access because of the jobs they do. There are only three people who cover the Steelers who have any credibility: Jim Wexell, Ed Bouchette and Ken Laird. Anything from anyone else is just amateur hour among the local media.
