Kissing Suzy Kolber:
Because there was a lengthy span of time after Todd Haley was officially brought on as the new Steelers offensive coordinator before there was a meeting of the meathead minds between Boss Todd and Ben Roethlisberger, people seem to be concerned about when The Ben gets in touch with new members of the Yinzburgh offense. Especially when the team took the occasion of the draft to finally improve upon the sieve-like quality of the Steelers O-line. Not to worry, though. The Ben was on the phone immediately after the draft calling the team’s first-round pick, Stanford guard David DeCastro, in what ended up being a HARF-worthy case of mistaken identity.
Roethlisberger said he phoned DeCastro to welcome him to the team, but DeCastro thought he was talking to a Steelers official who was handling his travel arrangements.
“He was saying, ‘Did you get those flight plans? Did you get those flight plans?”’ Roethlisberger, with his wife, Ashley, at his side, told an audience of 1,100 Saturda...

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was on WDVE radio this morning to talk about the new presents that he received during the 2012 NFL draft this past weekend as well as a few other topics.
Roethlisberger was specifically asked early on what he has heard so far about first round pick David DeCastro and how he was being compared already to former Steeler guard Alan...
The Pittsburgh Steelers have made great moves in upgrading their roster in the 2012 NFL draft. First, the Steelers took David DeCastro with the 24th pick, to help out the offensive line and shore up the middle. DeCastro started all 39 games of his career at Stanford. I think he will come in right away and make the starting lineup.
Next the Steelers picked Mike Adams at...

It is that time of year again as the new Pittsburgh Steelers draft picks and undrafted free agents have been issued their initial jersey numbers. I always like to disclaimer in these post that numbers are subject to change and that means you should be cautious in ordering jerseys until you know for sure your favorite player or players will indeed be wearing the number initially issued...
A rundown of the Steelers' draft picks. It has been a few days since the Draft and I have had to do some reserch on some of the Steelers' lower draft picks.
