Happy hump day to you Steelers’ Fans!
Even at my advanced age, I still get excited to see the Steelers come through the doors at the UPMC Facility. Seeing Big Ben stroll down the walkway still gives me goosebumps and the sight of James Harrison on the field in his full sweatsuit makes me smile from ear to ear. No, it isn’t September but it might as well be. Even without pads on or in some cases even helmets, the vision of our Black and Gold on the gridiron is so good to see again.
Here are a few of the tidbits we’ve learned after the first day of Phase Three…
Martavis Bryant through one day looks and sounds like a changed man. He weighed in about ten pounds heavier and his muscle definition was markedly different. He made it clear to reporters that he knows he’s on “his last chance.”
Ben Roethlisberger looked great and still weighed in at 252 pounds. At 6′ 5″ he has always worn his weight well but I still think he’ll come into training camp in the 245 range.
Jeremy Fowler of ESPN revealed that Sean Davis had offseason shoulder surgery but should be ready to go for camp.
Ryan Shazier admitted it was strange without Lawrence Timmons next to him.
Le’Veon Bell was a no-show yesterday and it appears to be due to his sports hernia surgery performed back in March. While he may not be 100% and would not be participating, I sure he doesn’t drop another rap song because it wouldn’t look real good now would it?
Tweet of the Day… Someone is interested in the new celebration rule…

I’m going to get on my high horse a minute here… I am not perfect. In fact, I’m far from it and I’m sure there have been times when I’ve failed to credit someone for information but there are way too many other sites and twitter accounts who constantly put out information without giving ANY credit to the person or persons who first reported it. I realize most fans don’t care where they get their info from but it’s what I call a “professional courtesy.”
Rejoice!! Players can celebrate again!
The Steel City Blitz Podcast presented by 26shirts.com/Pittsburgh airs live tomorrow night at 10pm Eastern and there will be plenty to discuss. Tune in and interact with us!
Speaking of Shazier… This is an excellent piece you should share with your kids.
Alright Penguins… Game 7 huh?
Have a great day Steeler Nation!
