Now that we’re mainstream (or something close to it), we’re careful (or at least more careful) about trafficking in rumors.  But when there’s a juicy rumor that is making the rounds in league circles, it’s hard to ignore it. The latest isn’t a rumor as much as it’s a hunch by someone with close ties…ProFootballTalk » Pittsburgh Steelers

Kiper: David DeCastro and Maurkice Pouncey Could Become the Best Guard/Center Combo in the NFL

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


ESPN NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper did a summer audit of the AFC North, and had some high praise for the future of the Steelers offensive line.

The selection of RG David DeCastro in this spring’s draft gives the team a high-level guard in terms of athleticism, power and intelligence. Playing him next to Pro Bowl C Maurkice Pouncey, in Kiper’s eyes, could give the Steelers the best combination of the two positions in the NFL.

That’s high praise, and obviously, something every team would want, given the choice.

Injuries have been the main concern around Pouncey. He looked strong at times last year, but at other times, looked like he was off a step or two. After breaking his ankle in the AFC Championship game at the end of the 2010 season, and missing the Super Bowl, it was clear the level of play along the Steelers interior offensive line was down.

DeCastro somehow fell to No. 24, where the Steelers probably beat the commissioner to the podium to submit their pick.

The versatility the two will bring – the ability to pull to either direction – gives the Steelers loads of options in the running game. Add in the move of Willie Colon from right tackle to left guard, you’re looking at the interior offensive line going from one of the worst in the NFL to one of the best in one offseason.

Kiper also mentioned the Steelers’ big question this season surrounding their younger players.

My question is whether some of the younger personnel [on defense] can make that next step and become dynamic. Lawrence Timmons is already exceptional, but it’s time for guys such as Cameron Heyward, Jason Worilds and Steve McLendon to become names.

Greg Cosell Says Play Of Ben Roethlisberger Has Become More Structured & Less Random

The great film guru Greg Cosell posted on Tuesday about Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the changes he has seen in his game from 2007 to last season.

Cosell notes first the escapability of Roethlisberger, which he has become so well known for over the years. Cosell describes the Steelers signal caller as “just plain ol’ country strong” and I think any Steeler fan can relate very well to that description.

Cosell goes on to say that during his film study of Roethlisberger in January of 2009, which encompassed all of his throws from the 2007 and 2008 seasons, that he Read more […]

Hines Ward Has Leadership Skills To Become A Coach, But Will He?

By now, Steelers fans are recovering somewhat from the news that Hines Ward chose to retire from the NFL in order to do so as a Pittsburgh Steelers player.  In a moving tribute, Steelers fans sent Ward numerous personal messages via Facebook and other media.  Cian Fahey wrote a very moving piece about the type of player Ward was.  Even Dave Bryan here at Steelers Depot wrote a piece about the way that Ward impacted the Steelers as a player and the NFL overall.  It is difficult to imagine no #86 jersey with Ward’s name on the back this season.  One thing I will always admire about Ward was Read more […]
