The Steelers 2011 regular season schedule was released Tuesday evening and my podcast partner David Todd has a look at the first 4 games of which 3 are on the road.

John Harris has a draft value piece up on the Trib site and makes a strong argument for drafting a defensive or offensive line player instead of a cornerback.

Gerry Dulac gives a more in-depth breakdown of the Steelers first round pick on this NFL.com Path to the Draft piece.

Not surprising that Hines Ward moved on to next week on Dancing with the Stars last night. On Monday, Ward and dance partner Kym Johnson danced a rhumba to “God Bless the U.S.A.”

I came across an old 2004 draft player profile of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on Sports Illustrated last night and thought I would share. They were pretty accurate on him especially the part that says he senses the rush yet buys as much time as possible, waiting for the last second before releasing the ball.

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

    Here’s what caught my eye in Ben’s draft profile: “A pocket passer with marginal mobility and cannot escape the rush.” I forget the stats on how many completions he’s made while outside the pocket, but it’s interesting to see that lack of escapability was seen as a negative pre-draft.
