Good Morning Steeler Fans! We’re another day closer to the season opener!!
Head Coach Mike Tomlin held his first Tuesday press conference yesterday and was in mid-season form in terms of his verbiage which actually became a bit entertaining at the end. The link to the presser is here. Skip to very end where he gets asked a rather asinine question about clock management. His expressions are priceless.
The Steelers will head into the Nation’s Capitol with several missing pieces and some damaged ones as well. I don’t think any Steelers’ fan should look past the Redskins when you factor in the injuries, suspensions and less than stellar secondary. My prediction will be coming in Monday’s Three-Point Stance.
I will not be on Trib-Live Radio’s Pregame show this season because they aren’t going to have one any longer. I want to thank Mike Barker, Daniel Dudley and Mike Grau for having me on for over the last several years. I enjoyed the conversations and long-distance friendship.
Sounds like Javon Hargrave is ‘day-to-day’ which is much better than many were led to believe after he left practice this weekend early. I think he’ll play on Monday night. Keep this in mind too; he’s listed as the starting nose tackle but make no mistake, he won’t be lined up as a traditional nose very often. Hargrave will move around the interior a lot.

Our contest with @CraigScott31 is underway! Over 100 people have already tweeted their guesses to these two questions. 1. What will the final score be and 2. How many touchdown passes for Ben Roethlisberger. Get both exactly right and you just might win $1,000! #nailthenumber
For the fourth straight year I unveiled my “Most Important Steeler” yesterday. As usual, this is always someone NOT named Ben, Antonio, Le’Veon or Cam.
If I had to put money on it, I’d take Eli Rogers to have five or more receptions on Monday night.
Have a wonderful Wednesday Steeler Nation!
