Omar Khan Unheralded Key To Steelers’ Success

Since 2010, the Seattle Seahawks sport a 50-30 record, a Super Bowl victory, and separated by a Malcolm Butler interception from another. They’ve found their franchise quarterback and can confidently claim having one of the best secondaries in the league. And I can’t quite figure out what fan base is…

Steelers FB Will Johnson Has Become Poster Boy For CrossFit In NFL Circles

As an experienced “CrossFitter” I can best describe it as a battle of determination and willpower, putting your body to the test each and every day to see how much advancement and progress you’ve made. Basically in a nutshell, CrossFit workouts, or sometimes referred to as WOD’s (workout of the…

Joe Montana Believes Ben Roethlisberger Is Hall of Fame Worthy

If he had his way, Joe Montana would put Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in the Hall of Fame. The NFL legend and other well-known local quarterbacks – Dan Marino, Jim Kelly, and Joe Namath – are in town for an NFL Films’ produced “armchair discussion” lead by team president Art Rooney…

AFC North Draft History Study: Tight Ends

On the heels of the conclusion of the 2015 NFL Draft, I began to realize the need to enhance my understanding of each team’s draft history; what they’ve built or attempted to build over the past ten years and how they’ve went about that process. This may seem tedious to…

L.T. Walton’s Progress Could Determine The Value Of Cam Thomas

When earlier this offseason Pittsburgh Steelers defensive line coach John Mitchell explicitly name-dropped defensive end Clifton Geathers as a player that he requested that the front office re-sign, it certainly made the ears perk up. Geathers was a street free agent when the Steelers signed him with four weeks to…

Poor Quarterback Competition Leaving Door Ajar For Slash Role

This may not be cause for much surprise, but it certainly doesn’t appear as though the Pittsburgh Steelers currently have much of a quarterback battle on their hands. I’m not speaking of Ben Roethlisberger, of course, who is coming off a career year; that goes without saying that his position…
