Steelers Six From Around The Web – Friday August 20th – Savran Makes Fool Out Of Florio Edition
Perhaps the biggest news to come out of the Thursday Mike Tomlin press conference was the word that Jonathan Scott would work at right tackle with the first-string offense after Flozell Adams exits. We broke down Adams 11 snaps earlier in the week and he was not even close with his pass blocking. Adams hopefully will improve leaps and bounds this week as we will be watching both very closely. The fact is that neither measure up to Willie Colon thus far from where we are standing.
John Harris wrote about the battle for the left cornerback position between Bryant McFadden and Keenan Lewis. Lewis has made tremendous improvement, but for right now I still believe McFadden is your number one corner. It is nice to finally have some solid depth at the position as Joe Burnett has made quite the progress as well from the tape we have watched.
Speaking of the secondary, Dale Lolley writes that McFadden and strong safety Troy Polamalu are the keys to plugging leaky pass defense of 2009.
Tunch Ilkin and Craig Wolfley hosted the second installment of the 2010 SteelersTV Training Camp Special on Steelers.com. Be prepared to have some time set aside as it is almost 25 minutes long, but features some great footage.
If you missed the radio interview of Ben Roethlisberger on the Mark Madden show, you can listen to it here on the 105.9 Podcast page.
Perhaps the best sports radio yesterday was the interview Stan and Guy had with Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. Florio was was spewing conspiracy theories about Dennis Dixon and Stan Savran in so many words was telling him he was full of crap. Florio also came in unprepared and did not know that Dixon started the Ravens game because Charlie Batch was out injured in addition to Ben Roethlisberger. You can listen here.
