IX- The Steelers official website sheds some light on Martin Nance who is competing for a role as one of the Steelers core group of wideouts going into next season. Nance seems to be quite an impressive young man; he is involved in mission work, assisting homeless shelters, as well as being apart of the NFL's Business Management and Entrepreneurial Program. Hopefully, the former college teammate of Ben Roethlisberger can help make an impact on the Steelers 2010 season.

XIII- Some knucklehead did a short interview about the Steelers' needs for the upcoming draft with "TheScore", a Canadian based site that has a ton of good information about the draft, the NFL, and just about every other sport you can think of. Feel free to leave comments here about how off base the interviewee is.
XIV- For those of you who may not live in the Pittsburgh area and don't get a chance to watch Steeler press conferences, here is a link to the press conference held for James Harrison regarding his new contract. Harrison says the only thing that might change is he might be a "little more reckless on the field." Maybe instead of playing just defense and special teams this season he could line up and play offense too. We always need help on the O-line.
XL- Ten more college prospects have visited the Steelers in the past few days according to the Tribune Review, Wake Forest cornerback Alphonso Smith, Western Michigan safety Louis Delmas and San Jose State defensive end Jarron Gilbert are all visiting and expected to be drafted in the first round. According to the Pittsburgh Sport Examiner Illinois cornerback Vonte Davis,Oregon's Max Unger, as well as defensive tackles Dorell Scott of Clemson, Sammie Lee Hill of Stillman College and guard Louis Vasquez of Texas Tech.
XLIII- Everyone's favorite Steelers hater, Mike Florio from profootballtalk.com does a segment for his own PFTV on whether or not the Steelers are overspending with the big contracts given to James Harrison, Troy Polamalu and Ben Roethlisberger. The most interesting comments came at about the 2:35 mark.
