"I'm from Maryland and no one can beat me!"

My name is John, no surprise there, and I am a huge Steelers and Terps basketball fan. I also follow the majority of Terps sports, the Orioles, and the Caps.

Numbers don't lie and that is why I have a healthy obsession with stats. Good, level-headed debates are welcomed (unless you are a Ravens or Duke fan).

[Editor's Note]: Please use this post to ask questions of the Steelers writer John Stephens. Also, while I'm sure John meant well, let's avoid trash talking. Our team is 0-2, and the Steelers have,...

Dirty Birds: Ravens Chop Blocking at Hampton's Knees

If you have not heard, a few of the Steelers players were asked about chop blocking during the game in an interview today.  James Farrior and Lawrence Timmons brought up the issue, saying that R...

Peyton Manning Out 2-3 Months

From what I hear that is best-case scenario. He had a "cervical fusion", which is potentially career threatening. I'd hate to see that happen. Anyway, this mean's Peyton will very likely miss the game against the Steelers.

Steelers Waive 2008 2nd Round Pick Limas Sweed

54

Well, if you know me, you know I am more down about this than anyone. I always hoped Limas Sweed would turn it around because it could benefit the Steelers. However, Sweed never took advantage of the plentiful opportunities he was handed. I heard a bunch of reports from camp yesterday that Jerricho Cotchery had a huge practice. There is no doubt in my mind that this is directly related. We can now officially call him a bust. Consider the Sweed Fan Club disbanded.

Emmanuel Sanders Out for 3 Weeks, Foot Not Healed Yet

Well, he lied to us when he said he was 100% after his off season foot surgeries. This is concerning considering many of us are expecting Sanders to be our 3rd WR. Hopefully, when the boot comes off he is 100%.

According to Multiple Sources, NT Chris Hoke has Inked a 1 Year Deal to Return to the Steelers

That adds more depth on the defensive line and brings back the best back-up on the line from 2009. Hopefully, he can help mentor UDFA Anthony Gray, when Casey Hampton is busy making a fourth run to the buffet line.

Just spoke to Steelers President Art Rooney II - he said he's talked with James Harrison about Harrison's offseason comments about Roger Goodell being "the devil" and the shots he took at his Steelers teammates. Rooney told me any disciplinary action the team takes will be internal and will not result in any suspensions or the disruption of Harrison's on-field activities." Now we are just waiting on you, Goodell.

Is the "Player Voted" NFL Network Top 100 Players a Load of Crap?

It looks like a lot of players are coming out and saying they did not vote and they do not know anyone else who voted. Like I originally guessed, the list is probably put together by analysts and not the players. Hence, the multitude of questionable placements.

Must Read: Colts Blogger Talks Directly to Roger Goodell

4

Nate Dunlevy is a Colts fan that runs the blog 18to88.com. Recently, he took part in a conference call with Roger Goodell that he termed a "waste of time". Roger caught word of this and directly got in contact with him. He did an interview with him and really did not pull any punches. You can find the interview on the site, but I am linking you to his analysis of the interview. It is a really good article and opens up a lot of information on the Lockout. tl;dr It doesn't look good.
