Behind the Steel Curtain Aug 11, 2016
The boys are back in town, and see what happened on Day 14 of work at St. Vincent College in Latrobe, PA as the Pittsburgh Steelers prepare for the 2016 NFL season. The term "going off" has multiple meanings in today's society. If a player has a tremendous game with ridiculous statistics, someone might say, "Man, he just went off." Then, there is the more traditional meaning of the term, which is to flip out and lose their cool. For instance, "The Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown went off on that referee in that joint practice with the Detroit Lions." Well, to be honest, that...

Sports doctors generally have a positive outlook on Ebron's leg injury. Monday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reported Eric Ebron had suffered an ankle injury, not an Achilles injury as Ian Rapoport first reported.

He calls the injury “week to week”: #Lions Eric Ebron video from camp today not worrisome for...

1) The Pittsburgh Steelers don’t only have to worry about the contract demands from soon to be free agent running back Le'Veon Bell, they’re now forced to start thinking about wide out Antonio Brown who said this after practice on Sunday, "You have to take care of your guys. If a guy underperforms, you get rid of him. If a guy overperforms, you take care of him." He’s right. With contracts not fully guaranteed in the NFL, teams can part ways with a player as soon as it’s convenient for them to do so. Brown signed an extension in 2012, after a good, but not great season. But from...

In a long history of the Pittsburgh Steelers' contract negotiations, the Steelers have never caved to a star on their team to give them a long extension.
