Rookie RB Le’Veon Bell has rare opportunity to step into starting role from start

The Pittsburgh Steelers knew when they let RB Rashard Mendenhall walk they didn’t have replacement on the roster for him. Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer are role players at best, but for offensive coordinator Todd Haley’s system, it requires a back that can get more that three yards and a pile of dust. Enter second round pick Le’Veon Bel…

Steelers Littergate: Anti-litter Group Should Use Sanders Mistake As Teaching Opportunity

Let me start this post off by saying that I have littered before. I have done it more than once in my life as well. Not recently mind you, but I have done it. In addition, I have never been ticketed or fined for it. Boy, that feels good to get that off my chest.

It seems that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown have also littered in their past as well, only both were caught and fined for it. The third year wide receivers pleaded guilty Monday in Allegheny County Common Pleas Court to leaving boxes beside a private Dumpster in Beltzhoover back in November of Read more […]

Former Steelers Linebacker James Farrior’s Agent Says ‘Waiting For a Championship Opportunity’


Following up on a story we ran Friday in regards to the possibility of former Steelers linebacker James Farrior retiring, his agent, Ralph Cindrich, responded to a question posed via Twitter about it.

Cindrich’s response suggested Farrior, the 13 year veteran, is waiting for a “championship opportunity.”

Will one of those present itself for Farrior? It’s an interesting question.

Whether it will happen remains to be seen, obviously, but one team I can think of that loves players in these situations is the New England Patriots.

Few teams in the league look to sign veteran free agents facing the twilight of their careers as much as the Patriots do. They’ve recently gotten high production out of DE Kevin Carter and OG Brian Waters. This year, they’ve brought in WR Brandon Lloyd, OG Robert Gallery and RB Joseph Addai, recently of the St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks and Indianapolis Colts, respectively. Even going back a few years, there’s LB Junior Seau, WR Deion Branch and WR Jabar Gaffney.

The Patriots spent what seemed to be 45 draft picks on defensive players, including three of their first four picks addressing the front seven (DE Chandler Jones, ILB Dont’a Hightower and DE Jake Bequette). The Patriots have also built themselves to become versatile enough to play a variety of different looks in their front seven, depending on the situation.

It wouldn’t be surprising if the Patriots, come training camp, took Farrior out for a test drive, and the Patriots, the defending AFC champions, certainly fit the title contender status Cindrich says Farrior is looking for.

2012 Draft Provides Opportunity for Pittsburgh Steelers to Add Running back

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

The 2012 NFL Draft is approaching very quickly and there are many quality players in this year’s draft. Running backs are one particular position that has great depth this year. This is good news for the Pittsburgh Steelers who need to add a running back via the draft.
Pittsburgh will be without starting running back Rashard Mendenhall for the majority, if not all, of the 2012 season. Mendenhall suffered an ACL injury in the season finale of the 2011 season. He did not play in the Steelers’ playoff loss against the Denver Broncos, and his absence showed on the field. Pittsburgh should look to add a running back in the 2nd or 3rd round of the draft. They have greater needs on the defense and on the offensive line to take a running back in the 1st round, but there are some good backs that should fall to them in the later rounds.
Trent Richardson is the best back of this year’s class and will be long gone by the time Pittsburgh is on the clock. The next best back is probably Virginia T…
