Steelers happy with O-Line upgrade

If the Pittsburgh Steelers dare put themselves into the “Super Bowl Contender” contention, they needed to upgrade a secondary that gave up 29 passing touchdowns in the season and on offensive line that allowed 33 sacks.

The Steelers picked up Ryan Harris from the defending Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos squad in the offseason which immediately bolsters the line.  The team also drafted a project OL player in Jerald Hawkins, an LSU product that the team has high hopes for.  Under the tutelage of new Defensive Coordinator Mike Munchek, the young tackle could be a star in the league in the near future.

The cornerback position is still questionable at best with Mike Mitchell still one of the top three at the position next to William Gay (who played well in 2015) and Ross Cockrell (who is a backup at best).  Mitchell, now in his eighth season, has only career interceptions.

The Steelers open the Preseason with home game against the Detroit Lions.  Tickets for this game and all preseason/regular season games are already on sale so be sure to get yours today and help cheer on your Pittsburgh Steelers in 2016!

Steelers looking for Receivers to have a huge impact

With 11 Wide Receivers on the current Steelers roster, the team believes that this could be one of the deepest in the NFL at the receiver position.

“I think some guys that are pretty good football players probably won’t make the team,” Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley said

The receiving squad are led by recently signed veteran Lance Moore who brings 4,281 yards and 38 touchdowns from the New Orleans Saints who cut him and RB Darren Sproles this off season. Moore caught some flack when he was asked to compare quarterbacks Drew Brees and “Big” Ben Roethlisberger.

“I would say that Ben has a little bit stronger of an arm, maybe a lot stronger arm,” Moore told ESPN. “Just from the last couple of days with him here, that’s something that kind of jumps out at me. If you are kind of lazy with your eyes the ball will zoom right past you. That’s something that I will have to adjust to. I feel like the quarterback should never really have to adjust to the receiver.”

Saints fans went crazy over those comments prompting Moore to tweet a follow up.

“Everybody down south is mad now? Never said I disliked Drew or am not thankful for my time w him. Wouldn’t be where I am w/o him. Chill out,” Moore posted on his Twitter account.
