Couple updates:

- Roethlisbergar ran with the first-team offense, but after three plays he switched with Leftwich. After a little while, they rotated for the rest of the practice.

- Adams played with the first unit in the morning practice, with Essex playing as the starting RG.

- Pouncey didn't do the conditioning test yesterday, he missed it, so he instead did it this morning. Don't know how he did.

- Both Andre Frazier and Chris Scott are on the PUP list.

like i said weeks ago

starks-kemoeatu-pouncey-foster-adams

gives the steelers the best chance and every single one of them is a tremendous run blocker, mendenhall could get 1500 yards behind that line.

eessex needs to be backup LT and backup LT only

I wouldnt bank on pouncey being the starter. Not the steeler way.

Couple of more updates from camp:

- Pouncey took the conditioning test today at 6:00 AM and, according to him, "passed it with flying colors."

- Ben got a great reaction from fans when he walked onto the field beside Ward.

- Hood had a good day, his best performance coming on the 1 vs. 1 drills. He was great there, and on three consecutive occasions beat Pouncey. Quoting Steelers.com, he "made Pouncey look like the rookie he is." Also, Hood "generally looked like a different player than the one who was the team’s No. 1 pick in 2009."

- Both Gibson and Worilds had up and down practices. Gibson showed off his great quickness, getting by linemen trying to block him, but he was overwhelmed in others. Worilds did well in the 1 vs. 1 blocking drills between LB and TE, but he was thrown down by Heath Miller. Nothing too surprising though, best veterans on the team vs. rookies.

- Antonio Brown had a great block on a Brandon Landon screen. His best play of the day.

- Sanders had a good day too. He showed of his speed and made a nice catch on a Leftwich pass.

- First big collision of camp happened, even though it wasn't too big. Mendenhall caught a pass from Roethlisberger and James Harrison popped him. Tomlin says Harrison backed off right before contact, but from various accounts, the hit was loud and it looked like a big hit. Both guys got up as if nothing happened, all part of practice.

- Tomlin says the veterans usually refrain from laying licks on other players. He said that Clark was in a position to lay one on Randle El, but just slipped beside him and kind of slapped him on the chest. Tomlin says Clark "showed that he’s a pro."

- Finally, two minor injuries. Both Hampton and Dwyer teaked their hamstrings. Hampton is day-to-day and no update was given on Dwyer.

According to Rotoworld:

Steelers C Justin Hartwig admitted that he suffered a torn labrum against the Raiders in Week 13 last year. It's pretty impressive that Hartwig played out the final four weeks with such a severe injury. After undergoing offseason surgery, he should be ready to bounce back. Hartwig is being pushed by Doug Legursky at center.

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt.../s_692957.html

Also Jeff Reed is calling out the organization:

Steelers franchise player K Jeff Reed ripped the organization Saturday, saying he was misled about their intention of signing him to a long-term deal.
Reed is none too happy about the $2.814 million he'll make this season on a one-year tender. "I understand business moves, but I'm not a big fan of lying," Reed said. "I'm really disappointed ... extremely ... little bit bitter." The Steelers don't need this from their kicker, especially from one that has had his share of off-field problems.

Early reports are that Flozell Adams' transition to RT has been virtually perfect so far (when it comes to the mental aspect of the game.)

Kugler only had rave reviews of him, and he said he's one of the most punishing runblockers he's ever coached. He said you can see the raw power he brings on one on one blocking drills.

Also, it was a great first day for almost everyone. Bruce Arians even said it was "the best first day I’ve ever been a part of.”

More updates:

- Mendenhall is down to 217 pounds. He said it will help him when it comes to speed. I'm not too sure I like the change, but we'll see. I hope it doesn't affect his ability to shake of first hits and get yards after contact. It doesn't really help that one of the first big hits in camp was Harrison on him.

- Mendenhall said he feels “light, explosive, quick, just really in good shape” after an offseason spent working on his speed and explosiveness.

- Speaking of Harrison, he himself was blown up by none other than Frank the Tank Summers. It was during a run-game scrimmage, and Summers ran to the outside and Harrison was in pursuit. At the moment of contact, Summers clearly won the contest, as he remained upright and Harrison wound up on his butt.

- Worilds struggled in the 1 on 1 drills vs. TE's. He was pancaked by both Miller and David Johnson. Gibson, on the other hand, had a great performance in those drills, repeatedly beating Spaeth and McHugh.

- Worilds also struggled against offensive linemen, while Gibson again had a great showing. Gibson played against the RT's, and he beat virtually everyone who lined up there. Gibson beat Adams, Jonathan Scott, and Ramon Foster on multiple occassions. The only guy who Worilds was able to beat was Tony Hills. :S

- Ziggy Hood was probably the defensive star of the day, as he was unblockable on on the 1 on 1 drills vs. offensive linemen. He made Pouncey look like a rookie and whipped Trai Essex on another occasion. He beat all the starters and then some. From what I've read, he didn't lose a single contest.

- Mike Wallace has been amazing so far. The only time a CB was able to stop him was when Bryant McFadden "smothered" him on a deep pass (perfectly timed, mind you) from Leftwich, which Wallace never reached.

- Apparently Randle El hasn't lost all of his explosiveness. He broke off for a large gain on a reverse play, after a great block from Isaac Redman, which got him a public praise. Randle El also had a great juke right after making the catch, making the DB slip and getting a lot of extra yardage.

- Pouncey impressed coaches and his peers by the way he finished blocks and never gave up on plays. He drove defenders down and didn't stop working until it was all done. He mainly ran at RG with the second unit, but he also played some RG with the starters as well.

- And again, the only two injuries were “aggravated hamstrings” for Hampton and Dwyer. Hampton is day-to-day and Dwyer said he was "fine" and would keep practicing.

I went to training camp today.

Just a few thoughts, Antonio Brown and Emanuel Sanders looked really smooth and fast.

During scrimmages the defense was consistently beating the Oline and living in the back field.

- Gibson is beasting it out there. He was 6-1 in backs on backers drills, the only guy who could beat him was Redman, and it wasn't a clear victory. He beat virtually every RB. Mendenhall (twice!), Moore, Summers, Redman, McHugh, and David Johnson all participated against him, and only Redman could handle him.

- Redman is getting glowing reviews from Tomlin for his blocking. Even though he's not played FB (yet), he's already had some great blocks.

- Nothing so far on Demetrius Taylor.

- Worilds is being outplayed by Gibson. And it's not that Worilds is playing bad, he's playing like a rookie, it's just that Gibson is truly beasting it out there.

- There were two minute drills today: Roethlisberger led the first team offense. He had two good plays. On one, he eluded pressure by running to the left of the field and getting a good chunk of yardage on a completion to Ward over the middle of the field for a first down. He also had a TD pass on ensuing play (maybe two or three plays in between though) to Miller, who was being covered by Farrior.

- Leftwich led the second team. They didn't score though. Had a nice completion with Spaeth for a first down on a 3rd and 1 (AARRGG! Arians keeps passing on 3rd and ones!!!), but four straight incompletions afterwards (ARRRGGG! No runs!). One pass was broken up by Foote, another was dropped by Antonio Brown after it hit him square in the chest, and another was either an erroneous pass or an erroneous route by Sanders, but they couldn't connect.

- Couple more injuries now, but still nothing serious. Hampton continues to be day-to-day with his hamstring. Dwyer and Pouncey also have hamstring issues, but they're practicing, though with somewhat limited contact. Chris Scott won't be playing anytime soon, still has the tough foot injury he developed over the summer (could be he's recovering from surgery though). Andre Frazier is day-to-day with his knee. And Ramon Foster suffered a mild concussion on Saturday and didn't practice today. He did take the concussion tests and did well, so he will participate in some drills tomorrow, but similar to Dwyer and Pouncey, with limited contact.

Cool, did you get any autographs?

How are the old-new guys looking? Foote, McFadden, and Randle El?

Also, are the things I'm reading about Gibson true? Is he really tearing it up?

Ben Roethlisberger got another friendly ovation today and also earned some good-guy points. A little boy was being pushed around by the crowd pretty good, and Roethlisberger saw him, autographed a sneaker and gave it to him.

Good read on Ziggy Hood. And it's good to hear he's faster and stronger than last year at 310 lbs. now.

I'm not much of an autograph seeker.


Mcfadden and Foote didn't really stand out to me, Timmons looked great blitzing.

Randle looked better than I expected and was happy and energetic for the entire practice

As far as Gibson the linebacker vs running back drills were too far away from where I was sitting so I couldn't tell.

Hines was entertaining the people booed when he dropped a pass, and then cheered when he did push ups to make amends.

More updates:

- Hines Ward, James Farrior, Casey Hampton, and Aaron Smith got the morning practice off for being veterans. They still are there giving pointers to younger players.

- Pouncey is out today (again) due to a hamstring, but Ramon Foster is back, participating in drills. His concussion was minor.

- Dwyer is also dressed and practicing, running well, hamstring isn't an issue.

- Jason Worilds is having trainers examine his right knee.

- According to Ed Bouchette, there have been some talks inside the organization about starting Pouncey at center from the getgo. He will eventually wind up there, but the question is whether to acclimate him at RG, like the Bills are doing with Wood, or keep him at C, like the Browns did with Mack. Link.

- Bouchette says: While Pouncey has the coaching staff's official stamp as competitor to start at right guard, it became quickly evident that he was the most talented center in camp after his first two practices Saturday, which went well. That's pretty damn good to hear.

- The best rookies so far have been Thaddeus Gibson and Jason Worilds, in that order. Gibson has been the best "by far," and some reports say he's played "better than some veterans," displaying a monstrous first step and an ability to match offensive linemen's physicality. He has beaten them with both speed and strength. He always plays at full speed and is described as "raw power."

- Worilds hasn't been quite as dominant, but has had a great couple of practices himself. Reporters are suggesting that it shouldn't surprise fans to see both guys get a healthy amount of playing time as situational pass-rushers during the regular season.

A part of me wishes Shea doesn't make the team so he can come back to Pittsburgh when/if someone gets injured. Dude was a real underrated part of our defense and a great guy.

Also, I think we lead the NFL in sacks. If reports of Hood, Worilds, and Gibson performing well, they'd join and fit in well.

- Early reports are that Ziggy Hood looks like a new man. He's been nothing but dominant in linemen drills.

- Reed kind of backed down from calling the Steelers FO liars. He now said: "All I can do is play the year out. That's pretty much it."

- Pouncey hurt his hamstring doing a second conditioning test, which made little sense as he'd clearly passed his first one. It is now being reported that he was 15 minutes late for the first one (at 6:00 AM) and Tomlin made him run another one later one, which is where he hurt the hammy.

- Mendenhall's fumbling issues are back, apparently. He's had multiple ones already, and he came out to drills holding a football in his hands. Back to basics, I guess.

More updates:

- BMac is looking good, back to 08 Steelers form. Also, he's apparently the vocal leader of the defense.

- Antonio Brown has "a little 86 in him" when he blocks.

- Tony Hills has been "brutal again" so far, and it's not looking good for him. He's stronger than last year, but that's pretty much it.

- Jason Worilds has something on his right knee. Trainers have looked at it multiple times.

- Redman was called out by Tomlin as being the best player in the backs on backers drills. He even showed his highlights during a team meeting. Some argue Gibson was better, but Tomlin believes defensive players have an advantage since they start the drill running while RB's and FB's are just standing there.

- Art Rooney II sought out Reed and had a man-to-man talk with him. Reed will play out the season under the arrangements of the franchise tag.

- Unofficial snap count for QB's during team drills: Byron 44, Ben 44, Dixon 22.

- Why LB Coach Keith Butler stayed in Pittsburgh instead of going to become Miami's defensive coordinator: "Probably more than anything else working with Mike Tomlin."

- Neither Pouncey nor Dwyer appear to be practicing today in the afternoon.

- Worilds practiced a little bit, but is sidelined again.

- Team doing 11 on 11 drills with Leftwich leading the first team offense.

- Polamalu is looking really good. Doesn't appear his knee injuries are slowing him down at all.

- Stefan Logan returning kicks, had a couple "huge" returns. Emmanuel Sanders is going after Logan.

- 7 on 7 drills now, Dixon not really getting any love. Has rarely worked with the first team offense.

- Redman had a couple of nice runs during team drills. Once again, it appears he'll be one of training camp's stars.

- Mendenhall might have a minor toe injury, I'll look into it.

- Pouncey had tests done on his hamstring, looks like it's ready to go.

- Polamalu is happy, healthy, and played catch with kids after practice.

- Mendenhall's loss of weight is not helping him much, according to sources. It has hindered his ability to block and to take on contact. Let's see if he doesn't try to regain it sooner or later.

Some updates:

- Mendenhall does, in fact, have a toe injury. He got it stepped on during morning practice but it's supposedly not too serious. He's listed day-to-day.

- Tomlin doesn't want to talk about Polamalu and his health, he says that as long as he's cleared medically to train, he'll train.

- Hampton trained in the afternoon, though in limited fashion. The hamstring injury seems to be wearing off.

- Worilds has an injured hamstring, don't know how ugly the injury is, but it's supposedly not too bad.

- LB Andre Frazier did some light running today. Injury is close to healing.

- We released FB Demetrius Taylor and signed FB Dwayne Wright, who most recently played with the Eagles. Really disappointing to see Taylor cut so early, I really wanted him to become a good FB for us. Just a blocker, nothing more. Guess he just didn't play well. At all.
