If you have not checked out the new Steelers Nation 24 hour radio station, you really are missing a treat. It can also be heard via the IHeartRadio app as well. I love it.
Nick Richetta sat in for David Todd on the latest episode of The Terrible Podcast and we previewed the New England Patriots game in depth.
Ed Bouchette writes that the slow start that Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall has gotten off to might cost him when it comes time to talk contract extension. In my opinion, there is no guarantee he gets extended prior to the start of the 2012 season.

Scott Brown reports that if linebacker LaMarr Woodley can somehow sack Patriots quarterback Tom Brady twice today, he will have had four consecutive multi-sack games for the first time of his career.
David Johnson recently sat down with Mike Bires to answer 10 decidedly non-football questions. You might not know that Johnson was also a pretty good baseball player as well.
