I have been a Steeler fan since 1971 which is about 6 years after I actually watched an entire football game (not much sports viewing in my house as I grew up).

I live on the Canadian prairies and I am retired. I seem like a grumpy old man because I am.

I am a Steelers fan first and foremost but I have started tracking young Canadian players in the NFL and also tracking some former CFLers. Because of this I will be popping up on other boards to see how those players are doing.

Lance Moore at CFL game

I was reading the SI article by Jenny Vrentas about the Winnipeg Blue Bombers season opener when I noticed it mentioned Lance Moore. Turns out his brother is playing for Winnipeg. The article is a...

I don't want this to happen


One of the best defensive players in the CFL is being courted by the Pats. He would probably make more as a ST player in the NFL than an all-star in the CFL. He plays MLB in a CFL 4-3 but is very mobile.

Steelers scouting shakeup


Looks like the Steelers are making some changes.


Twin Cities

How many of our posters are from the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St Paul area)? My family and I are going to be there for the Easter weekend and I am trying to figure out what we can see. I...

NFL becoming like the CFL.


I found this article about the NFL game becoming more like the CFL game. The role of athletic QBs and the challenge they provide is very similar. I thought it might generate some discussion. Just a side note, the Vancouver Sun is an established and reputable paper that is not part of the Sun chain of newspapers.

Origins of -3-3-5


I found this link at BFTB and thought it was interesting.

No new Steelers stories posted on BTSC for over 12 hours

What does this mean to Steelers fans? Will they survive the drought?

Cincy working out Sweed


I just came across this on Cincy Jungle.


The Pats, The Dolphins and a tinfoil hat

This morning, as I was reading various comments on various posts, I was struck with a nasty thought. The Pats and Dolphins could put Wallace into a Phins uniform with the Steelers only receiving a...

Steelers sign 10 to reserve/future contracts


Just a link to the Steelers website listing 10 players signed today.

Dwyer overcoming difficulties


I haven't seen anyone discussing Dwyer lately but I think this article gives some good background on what he is having to deal with.


A quick question on some Vikings History

During a discussion, on BTSC of HoFers, the name of Bud Grant came up. Being a Winnipeger, Bud Grant is well known to me but I also had a memory from the days of the Purple People Eaters.

CFL prospect rankings


The CFL scouting bureau has released a list of Canadian players eligible for the CFL draft and where they could possibly be chosen. It is interesting to note that the Chargers Vaughn Martin is listed as 6th overall. I doubt any CFL team will be signing him soon unless he loses his green card.



I would like to congratulate the Green Bay Packers football team, players, coaches, front office, owners and fans on their Super Bowl victory today. It was well earned.  


At this point in time

I would like to thank the Pittsburgh Steelers football team, players, coaches, front office and owners for a wonderful season. It hurts like hell to not have number seven but this has been an...


First Playoff Game

Amongst the excitement and turmoil of this season and our first playoff game of the season it is easy to over look the number of players on the Steelers roster who had never taken part in a NFL...

No Luck for Panthers


Looks like everyone's first choice for #1 is declining the party invite.

In defense of the 4-3 defense


I found an interesting discussion underway on the SBnation Bears blog and thought some folks might enjoy it.

Antonio Gates injured Plantar Facia


I suffered an inflamed Plantar Facia years ago (a Tae Kwon Do injury) and was still limping 6 months later. Gates has a tear. I don't know what that means but it cannot be good.

Bucs fans worried about their O-line


The thought of turning our defence loose against their o-line sounds unfair.

Kevin Acee on rule changes


I found this link on BFTB. I think it may be of interest to folks here.


Friday Morning Hijackable Thread

Due to popular demand and the need for somewhere to post so we don't ruin the serious (and more valuable) threads, I am tossing out another thread for people to hijack. If you are in doubt about...


Hijack this thread!

Every thread needs a topic so I will put several to keep everyone happy. Father's day is coming up soon so I thought I would provide a non-musical link with a special father and son moment. I am...

Top Ten Qb's


according to Fifth Down (ny times).


I was going to wait till Saturday

For a lot of Steelers fans,  things don't look very good atm. IWe now have a full fledged QB controversy with only one starting QB. No matter what happens, things will never be the way they were...

Atlantic article on reporter bias


I found this link on BFTB today. It talks about unintentional bias on the part of journalists. Thought it is something to keep in mind these hectic days.


Saturday Morning Time Wasting Thread

Another day closer to the draft and I am still a loose ends. I thought about doing a thread that is just about music but I figure there are already two threads going that have music in them. One by...


A college football question (sorta) - Not Steeler related

I was chatting with the parents of one of the older teens who works out with the same off-season trainer as my boys. Turns out one of the two older teens, a RB, had just signed a letter of intent...
