Steelers Six From Around The Web – May 23rd – Willie Colon Predicts Ass Kicking Edition

Recently retired Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward was recognized by Pennsylvania governor Tom Corbett and the legislature in Harrisburg on Tuesday as he received a proclamation honoring his accomplishments on the football field as well as his volunteer work with nearly a dozen community organizations.

Willie Colon said Tuesday that he has no problem moving from tackle to guard. In fact, he embraces the switch and said he will kick ass regardless.

Jerricho Cotchery was on 93.7 The Fan Tuesday to talk about the desire he had to return to the Steelers and taking on the role of veteran leader for the teams young receiving core. Cotchery also talked about the new offense, the passing of Junior Seau and the New Orleans Saints bounty situation.

Ron Cook gives his opinion of why there is no reason to worry about Mike Wallace missing workouts.

NFL owners voted on Tuesday and approved the move forward of rule changes regarding the trade deadline, mandatory knee and hip pads as well as new IR rules for 2013.

If you missed the new and notes from the first day of Steelers OTA\’s, I have a full recap here and Mark Kaboly joined us on the Tuesday podcast to tell us what he observed as well.

    Thanks for the link Newman. The guy is laying the groundwork in case there is failure this year plain and simple. He’s started it early on and will keep it up, watch and see it won’t stop.

    I will never question this guy’s toughness, but as my grandfather told me once when I was young and doing stupid stuff……Boy if your gonna be dumb you gotta be tough. Now I wouldn’t go as far to call Ben dumb, but that said, I do question his smarts. And for the author of the article to make references to Brady, Manning, and Rogers being in the same league as Ben to where you would solicit changes as you would with them, his mental capacity should be questioned. Hate to be like that but C’mon Man! Those three or a Drew Brees you maybe do those things for, Ben you most definitely do not. Do you think any of those four would have any problems adjusting????? I highly doubt it.

    Even if Ben isn’t the brightest, he along with a lot of other people in the world can overcome those deficiencies by working hard. But Ben is not known to have the greatest work ethic over his career either and if neither of the things exist,the results are not going to be good the majority of the time. That sure looks like the avenue were headed down unfortunately unless his attitude changes. After watching an ESPN piece last night where everyone predicted the Steelers finishing 3rd in the division citing the reason as “To many changes” maybe others are seeing the writing on the wall as well.

    I really like to see the Steelers win but even if they don’t win many games, but are giving it their all, that’s all you can ask for. But when you have guy’s not giving 100% especially at this level and even more importantly on the Steelers it’s not acceptable IMO.
