Steelers Morning Huddle 7/4/2014


Steelers season goes all year long so whether we’re previewing training camp, predicting roster moves, 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.

Grateful Larry Foote

Larry Foote considers Pittsburgh a home, even after being released by the team this offseason and signing with the Arizona Cardinals. According to ESPN’s Scott Brown, he only has good things to say about the city, and the organization. While he wasn’t exactly stoked his number was given to Steelers first-round draft pick Ryan Shazier, he thinks it was a good draft choice made by the team.

“I joked with the coaches, ‘Y’all got rid of the old [car] for a new Ferrari.’ He’s surrounded by some good coaches so I think he’ll be a good one. If he can get it upstairs and have that toughness I’m quite sure he’s going to be a player in the league for a long time.” – Larry Foote

Will Allen pays it forward

As Teresa Varley explains, Steelers safety Will Allen is a firm believer in paying it forward. From things like providing kids who attend his football camp in Columbus, Ohio with cleats if they don’t have them to paying off strangers’ layaway orders of back-to-school supplies at K-Mart. Allen believes he’s just doing his part to help out the community after he feels grateful for the help he received along his way to have a career in the NFL.

Bold predictions

Willie McGinest of the NFL Network made his bold NFL Week 1 prediction that Johnny Manziel will start for the Browns and Cleveland will beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh for the first time since 2003.

    I agree that Manzel starts but I think that he will be hit like he has never been hit before in his life and the Brownies go sulking home like always but with their QB so rattled that he doesnt play well again this season. He will realize he is playing with the “Big Boys” not college ball and suddenly want to go back to playing in college!!

    • Dean Kahler

      I agree starting with Pittsburgh in week one, the AFC North is gonna break that little boy

      • Hockeydude99

        Its a shame the he doesnt play…Pitt, Balt and then the Raiders and Houston in that order. Gont think he would come out for game 5.

    Hope this guy doesn’t bet in vegas, cuz his predictions are far from winners!!! Ben will put up great numbers and the defense will make manziel wish he went into baseball!!! GO STEELERS!!!
