Todd Haley: It’s “feasible” Mike Wallace can play Week One


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


Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace is confident that he will be ready to play against the Broncos on Sept. 9, but the call won’t ultimately be up to him. It will be up to the Steelers coaches to make that call. Coach Mike Tomlin said he wasn’t prepared to discuss Wallace’s status because “he hasn’t…

Casey Hampton may be old and slow, but he says it’s not over

When Pittsburgh opened last season by taking a one-sided beatdown in Baltimore, Warren Sapp proclaimed that the Steelers were “old, slow and it’s over.” Casey Hampton is, at age 35, the second-oldest Steeler. And at well over 300 pounds and coming off a torn ACL, he may be the slowest Steeler as well. But he…

Steelers QB Terry Bradshaw: NFL is ‘Forced to Care Because It’s Politically Correct To Care’

Photo

When Steelers QB Terry Bradshaw talks, people listen.

When Terry Bradshaw says the contact in football will "slowly fade away" over the next decade, Steeler Nation likely nods its head in agreement.

The fact Bradshaw also says he'd absolutely do it all again, we have more admiration for the legendary hero.

If it's possible for those not blessed with the super-human abilities of a professional football player to comprehend what they do for a living, and the risks with their health they happily assume, we can see it with Bradshaw.

A man who took a savage beating throughout his career, both on and off the field, rebounded to become one of the most winning quarterbacks of all time. He went on to a successful broadcasting career, and became a lightning rod for the claims of former players, and the advancing research of concussions and their effects on the former players.

Only an ignorant person will listen to Bradshaw. While we gnash our teeth and curse the direction the league is going in, Bradshaw's generation saw at least - LEAST - the same amount of regulation facing the players today. When he says he sees the game we know today fading away, it's because he watches the results of a game that faded away from the late 70s to today.

Maybe in 10 years, this game will equate to basketball on grass, where contact happens but is mostly disallowed and the strategy is largely diluted due to the dimensions of options becoming basically "run as fast as you can, catch the ball, and win the game 72-65."

Regardless, though, if this quote doesn't encapsulate the issue at hand - as well as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's legacy - I don't know what does.

"I have to be careful here because I work for Fox and NFL Network," Bradshaw said, "but I don't think they care. They're forced to care now because it's politically correct to care. Lawsuits make you care. I think the P.R. makes you care. But personally, when I got out in 1983, do I think they cared about me? No. And you know what? I don't expect them to. I don't need them to worry about me. I take care of myself. But, do they care? They're forced to care right now because, P.R.-wise, it's not very favorable to them."

It’s Brady vs. Bailey, and neither enjoys it

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

The previous time Denver and New England met in the playoffs, Champ Bailey returned an interception 100 yards, sparking a big Broncos win and handing the Patriots' Tom Brady his first postseason loss after 10 wins and three titles. Six years later, they meet again Saturday, both men a lot longer in the tooth, but just as transcendent.

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

PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Former Steelers Cornerback and current Arizona Cardinals Secondary Coach Deshea Townsend joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller on Sportsradio 93-7 The FAN to discuss what his good friend, Hines Ward, and several of the other Steelers veterans are going through as their futures with the Steelers are in doubt.

Deshea played with a lot of the current Steelers who are getting up there in age and have to make some tough decisions, and told us what it was like when your career is winding down and you realize that your playing days are over. 

When it came to discussing the future of Hines, Deshea said if the Steelers want him back, there is no doubt he’ll be back to play again. 

We wrapped things up with Deshea getting his thoughts on what it was like coaching against Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown, and what his reaction was when Wallace beat them deep this year for a 95 yard touchdown.
