Happy Friday Steelers Fans! The news this morning includes some feedback from Ben Roethlisberger’s latest round of radio interviews as well as continued discussion about what the Steelers still need.
Hallelujah! The NFL regular season is out. Check out the NicePickCowher post on the schedule.
Of course, the commentary is spinning up on the season. Here is an article from ESPN.com about the Steelers schedule by Jameson Hensley. He notes the Thanksgiving evening game against the Ravens and Mike Wallace’s potential return to Heinz Field with the Dolphin on Dec 8th.
Ben visited the “Vinnie and Cook” show on 93.7 the Fan and Ron Cook summarized the discussion for the Post Gazette. One of the bright spots for the Pittsburgh Steelers is the talent and passion for football that Ben Roethlisberger has. Cook notes that’s a lot of pressure for a single player. Cook asked Ben to address that and he’s saying what I think Steelers fans want to hear:
I’m fine with people saying we’re going to be terrible. ‘Let’s overlook them,’ ” Roethlisberger said. “I like that. I like being the hunter. It’s kind of a fun place to be.”
Isaac Redman has also finally signed his tender with the Steelers and will remain with the Steelers for 2013. According to Curtis Crabtree of NBC Sports, Redman will make $1.323M for the year.
Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette looks at the “Year of the Offensive Linemen” in this year’s NFL draft. He concentrated on Luke Joeckel from Texas A&M. Robinson thinks it is possible that 5 out of the first 12 picks will be offensive linemen.
