Training Camp Diary: Day Eleven

Welcome to Day Eleven. Last day of practice before the team’s Hall of Fame game. As I tweeted, and maybe mentioned in yesterday’s report, we’re to the point where you learn less about the players in practice. It’s really just about seeing guys compete. You know their overall skillset. Game…


Brandon Boykin Getting Chances To Do A Bit Of Everything

Back in Philadelphia, fourth-year cornerback Brandon Boykin told his head coach that he wanted to be given a fair opportunity to play outside and log starter’s snaps. That opportunity never materialized before he was traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers late last week. Since traveling west on the Pennsylvania highways, Boykin…

Steelers’ Chisholm Still Playing With Chip On His Shoulder

Do you want to play football? A simple question with some life-changing results. It was what running back Jawon Chisholm heard first from Akron and now, the Pittsburgh Steelers. The answer an easy one. “Heck yeah, I want to play football.” But to understand the journey is to understand Chisholm….


Training Camp Diary: Day Eight

A slightly damp day eight but overall, the rain held off and we’ve been very lucky avoiding it so far. Today was the first sight of any rain so hey, can’t complain. Let’s get into the notes. Friendly reminder that the team is off tomorrow. Will be back on Wednesday….

Steelers 2015 Training Camp Diary: Day Six

Day seven and the home stretch of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ six consecutive practice. Today was more physical and energetic than I anticipated following a night practice. Definitely not a boring day. Let’s hop to it. – It also unfortunately wasn’t a healthy day as several players didn’t finish practice. Ryan Shazier, Gerod Holliman, Josh Harris, Shamarko…

Steelers 2015 Training Camp Stock Report: Day 4

Another blazingly hot day in Latrobe, conditions that were hard enough to just stand in, let alone practice in full pads. The players handled the heat well, with a lively practice that didn’t have quite as much contact as Wednesday’s, but still provided plenty of entertainment. Daily stock report… Stock…


Josh Harris Expanding Special Teams Resume

With the Pittsburgh Steelers knowing that they will be without Le’Veon Bell for the first two games of the season, the team is faced with the unusual position of having a temporary roster spot, and as a result, there has been an added focus on the person most often assumed…


Steelers 2015 Training Camp Diary: Day One

Welcome back! One practice down, 17 to go. It was a terrific day, as always, and though we can only learn so much, it was cathartic just to watch the Pittsburgh Steelers again. Many thanks to our own Jon Ledyard, Tony DelSignore Jr, and Tim Rice for hanging out with…


Training Camp Day One: What To Watch For

Welcome back! We’ve survived the offseason. Pat yourself on your back. Football. Has. Returned. Of course, we’ll be looking for everything. Now, keep in mind the team will only be practicing in shells meaning we can only learn so much. Not every question can be answered within the first day. But…

Mike Mitchell Hit Ravens

Preseason Expectations: Safety

Five games. 18 practices. That’s the allotted time the 2015 Pittsburgh Steelers will have to prove themselves before playing in a meaningful game. The preseason is unique in the sense that it’s the only time when the scoreboard doesn’t matter. 0-5, 5-0, it really isn’t going to matter. It’s the…

All explanations are included and as usual, I will be updating my prediction after each and every preseason game. Feel free to chime…


Steelers CB B.W. Webb Adds Pugilism To Offseason Workouts

Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback B.W. Webb will be fighting for a roster spot this year during training camp and he is preparing for the upcoming bouts by doing a little bit of boxing. Webb, who spent all of 2014 on the Steelers roster after being claimed off waivers from the Dallas…

Steelers CB B.W. Webb Getting To Know ST Coach Danny Smith Well

Last year, toward the end of the regular season, when the Dallas Cowboys cut their former fourth-round cornerback in his second offseason, the Pittsburgh Steelers acted quickly, claiming B.W. Webb off waivers and essentially giving him a redshirt season as the sixth cornerback on the depth chart, although by the…
