Steelers Morning Huddle 5/14/2014


Steelers season goes all year long so whether we’re breaking down free agency signings, recapping the draft choices, or looking around for mentions of your Black & Gold we’ve got you covered. Here’s what’s being said about your Pittsburgh Steelers around the block.

Steelers #17 in Power Rankings

The NFL Draft just ended a few days ago so naturally it’s time to start the Power Rankings, right? Give it to ESPN for jumping ahead on this one as Scott Brown reports the Steelers landed in the middle of the pack at number 17 on their Power Rankings. Apparently having the busiest offseason in recent memory along with a Mel Kiper “A” graded draft still didn’t inspire much confidence in the Steelers from whoever voted on this. Not like ESPN doesn’t have any total friggin tools working for them or anything.

Tuitt excited to get to work

The newly drafted Steelers rookies are getting outfitted with their equipment in preparation for rookie camp out at the South Side facilities. Stephon Tuitt has been in Pittsburgh since this weekend and announced earlier on Tuesday that he will be wearing uniform No. 91 for the Steelers. He’s got a lot to live up to with that number, that’s for sure.

 


Steelers “earth moving” draft pick

One guy from the draft that people can’t seem to stop talking about is Big Daniel McCullers, the defensive lineman the Steelers drafted in the sixth round out of Tennessee. He just might be the biggest player in Steelers history, according to Marc Sessler of Around the League. Some of the heaviest players in Steelers history include Max Starks, Chris Kemoeatu, Flozell Adams and Marcus Gilbert. No idea how Casey Hampton didn’t make that list except the fact that I don’t believe his weight was recorded accurately the last five years of his career. At any rate McCullers, or “Big Mack” if you will, tops out on all of them at 352. With that kind of size and weight he can surely clog some holes on the line, prompting this comment from NFL Media’s Charles Davis;

“He blots out the sun and the earth moves when he walks. He’s an absolute monster.” – Charles Davis

    Hows negative Nancy, I mean the writing that is coming out of this place? Time to stop reading this stuff, tired of the world is ending….next.

    • Kimmy

      What exactly did you find negative about this? You might be surprised to find some varying opinions if you took the time to read the posts we’re putting out now.

      • steve

        I have found every thing produced by NPC to be negative lately. FYI I do take the time to read the posts maybe you should do the same, and maybe you should do it without the baggage of having been a part of it’s publication….

        • Kimmy

          Ok then. You’re entitled to your opinions. Nothing negative in this piece though. Nothing negative against the Steelers in my posts in general. Thanks for reading!

            From this piece!

            It’s not an opinion it’s an observation

          • Kimmy

            No that’s you not reading. That was me criticizing ESPN for ranking the Steelers low after all the improvements they’ve made this offseason. You want to argue for the sake of arguing fine but at least be correct about who you’re calling negative or you just end up looking stupid.

          • steve

            Exactly….you criticizing ESPN…thats all this site does is criticize….and when someone criticizes this site all the writers get all hot an heavy…I think ive pulled enough samples from the writing that looking stupid is not a problem.

          • Kimmy

            LOL think again buddy.

          • steve

            Craig is a joke….so are you

          • Kimmy

            And there it is. Hope we’ve made your night buddy. This must be a joke because I certainly am laughing.

          • Craig

            I know I know. Reading comprehension. It’s tough stuff, kiddo. Hang in there though, you’ll get there.

        • steve

          The Steelers appeared to really screw that up royally by selecting Ryan Shazier out of Ohio State.

          Yes that’s right.

          • steve

            Would you like me to find you more examples of a negative thought process? This is too easy! You may not agree with the picks, however, you are definitely not connecting with your audience. There are a million ways to say a person might not be the “solution” they are looking for, and this is how the site chooses to do it? So I will say again IF (to use your words) you would read you might see what I am saying. That’s a really big if based on your response…..

          Let’s see they ranked 21st against the run last year and 9th against passing so maybe those “idiots” thought improving the front seven of the defense was a higher priority?

          • steve

            This appears to be you also…..great writing, and way to connect with your audience!

          • Craig

            Not her. If you want to waste your time and drudge up who’s ‘negative’ and who’s not fine. Waste your time. If you want to continue reading. Fine keep reading. This is a fan blog site where people are entitled to their opinions. If the folks on here feel that the general state of things is not going well, they can say so. It’s not always that way. When times are good there’s lots of positives to talk about. When times are rough you talk about the tough times. When you are unhappy with something you can bitch about that too. That’s the awesome part of having a blog site vs mainstream media where most of the time there needs to be an impartiality to their writing.

            Bottom line for you dear Steve – don’t like it? Don’t read it. Don’t read it? Don’t troll. Have a great night.

          • steve

            Way to come to the defense guy who works with her

          • steve

            I see so you say above “When you are unhappy with something you can bitch about that too”, and then you say “don’t like it? Don’t read it. Don’t read it? Don’t troll.”? How hypocritical are you? A little emotional are we? Does someone need to rub your back and tell you everything will be ok?

          • steve

            Since your so fond of calling people idiots….let me say….your an Idiot!!!

          • Kimmy

            Again that’s me defending the Steelers pick of Shazier and Tuitt against someone who was criticizing them for not picking a cornerback. Do you really want to keep making yourself look this bad?
