Welcome to another Thursday Steelers’ Fans.
Had good conversation with SCB contributor Ben yesterday about Shamarko Thomas. There are a lot of assumptions out there that Thomas, who has clearly underachieved, will be cut at some point prior to the season beginning. If you look at the Steelers’s safety depth and that they’d only save $200,000 by releasing him we think he might make the roster. Stay tuned on this.
I started my SCB Summer Series this week. I’m focusing on players who I think have to have big seasons in order for the Steelers to make a legitimate run to the Super Bowl. My first two players were Ladarius Green and Mike Mitchell.

From everything we are hearing Landry Jones will enter camp as the team’s number two quarterback. Jones had a few strong moments and some that were… Not so strong in relief of Big Ben last season. If Bruce Gradkowski is 100% do you agree with Jones still be the #2?
Have to think the Steelers are working on a deal for David DeCastro. I’ll be very surprised if something isn’t done for him by the beginning of camp.
I was 45-50 miles out of Pittsburgh Monday and I saw this gazebo up on a hill along the highway. Wrapped around the top of the gazebo was a “You’re in Steelers Country” banner. I just love Steeler Nation!
Last week it was Roger Goodell who was falsely reported to be dead on Twitter. This week it’s Joe Flacco. Obviously these things aren’t funny but…. Then again they kinda are.
Have a great day Steeler Nation!
