Steelers Training Camp Day 12: What To Watch For

Back at training camp for the first post-game Pittsburgh Steelers’ practice of St. Vincent. I am assuming the intensity of practices will be way down from here on out, this is the final week, but there’s still plenty to watch for. Quarterback Is Landry Jones ready to go? Charlie Batch…



Steelers Training Camp Diary: Day 11

Despite the first preseason game being just 48 hours from now, the Pittsburgh Steelers offered up another physical practice today. Let’s dive into what happened. Quick aside: want to thank our training camp sponsor, Touring Plans, who is supporting the meals throughout camp. Leftover chicken wrap – still pretty good. Thanks…


Steelers’ Training Camp Diary: Day Ten

Busy and frankly, a more intense 10th practice for the Pittsburgh Steelers than I expected. Tackling throughout. Lot to get to so let’s jump in. Quick aside: want to thank our training camp sponsor, Touring Plans, who is supporting the meals throughout camp. Leftover chicken wrap – still pretty good. Thanks…


Steelers Training Camp Statistical Recap: One On One Drills

Went through the notebook to compile the one-on-one drills I’ve added for the Pittsburgh Steelers from practices five through nine. To be clear, this isn’t every single rep of that drill. I miss some, watch elsewhere, etc. Just what I have jotted down. We’ll list what has happened in the…



Steelers Training Camp Diary: Day Nine

Certainly a cool environment today at Heinz Field for the Pittsburgh Steelers. I’m a training camp snob and still prefer Latrobe but the crowd on hand tonight was something St. Vincent can’t match. Over 17,000 fans in attendance, half the lower bowl being full tonight, compared to Friday Night Lights,…


Steelers Training Camp Day Nine: What To Watch For

Should be an interesting day of practice. First time there’s been a Pittsburgh Steelers’ training camp at Heinz Field. Not really sure how it’s going to look or feel or how many fans will attend. Practice is slated to begin around 6:30 PM so expect another late final practice report….


Steelers Training Camp Diary: Day Eight

An intense but shorter practice today for the Pittsburgh Steelers out at St. Vincent College. Wrapped up at 5:03, 10-15 minutes earlier than usual, but there was a good bit of hitting going on today. Quick aside: want to thank our training camp sponsor, Touring Plans, who is supporting the meals…


Steelers Training Camp Diary: Day Seven

Still a good practice out at Latrobe Memorial High School tonight but it was dampened, literally, by some severe weather. Lightning drove fans out of the stadium for about 15 minutes, with many evidently deciding not to return and just go home. Truth be told, I missed seven shots and…


Steelers Training Camp What To Watch For: Day Seven

Welcome to Day Seven of training camp. The best day of camp. It’s Friday Night Lights for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Atmosphere is always electric. Players come in on six yellow school buses from St. Vincent College.An environment you’re not going to find anywhere else and a tradition as enduring as…


Steelers Training Camp Diary: Day Six

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ training camp practice today was certainly a lower intensity one than any of the others they’ve had in pads so far. It is a long stretch of practice, five in a row, and the always impactful Friday Night Light’s practice is happening tomorrow evening. So smart to…



Steelers Training Camp Diary: Day Five

Another great day of practice, one that was won by the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense. Let’s jump in. Quick aside: want to thank our training camp sponsor, Touring Plans, who is supporting the meals throughout camp. No McDonalds today; leftover diner food from yesterday’s off today. Thanks again to them, who…


Steelers Training Camp Statistical Recap: One On One Drills

With today the off day for the Pittsburgh Steelers, wanted to comb through the notebook and start tabulating the stats from the first four days of camp. For now, we’ll look at the past two days and the one-on-one drills I’ve watched. We have three different ones. The OL/DL battles,…
