Steelers Six From Around The Web – Monday July 20th

Mike Bires from the Beaver County Times recounts his recent trip to Rome and reports on the strong Steeler Nation in Italy.

Dale Lolley questions some Steeler player ratings in the new Madden 2010 video game. Oh boy, training camp can not get here soon enough.

Steelers.com has posted part 2 of the Q & A with rookie corner Joe Burnett and part 1 of the Q & A with rookie receiver, Mike Wallace.

Chris Steuber ranks the Steelers Top 10 prospects in his piece for Steel City Insiders. I found it hard to swallow that both Dennis Dixon and Limas Sweed are both ranked above William Gay and that Kraig Urbik is buried at number 9.

Shaquille O’Neal has challenged Ben Roethlisberger to a game of football. They both will be quarterbacking the Pittsburgh Colts semi-pro team on Friday for a reality show segment of “The Shaq Show”. Should be entertaining.

Michael Fabiano of NFL.com has ranked the Steelers top-5 fantasy players and says Ben Roethlisberger is a borderline No. 1 or 2 fantasy quarterback. The biggest surprise is he ranks the Steelers defense behind Roethlisberger. I guess anyone can write for NFL.com these days.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.
