Le'Veon Bell walked away holding all the unofficial Camp Hero award for the day.
Will he be wrested from his throne by today's biggest challenger, outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley, who, possibly for the first time in 20 months, is drawing positive praise from fans and media types?
It remains to be seen, but our ability to drum up drama is second-to-none.
Admit it, that's why you come here.
Steelers Day 6 Open Thread starts...now.
Hey Ra'Shon, umadbro?
Going through some tape I do believe Shamarko Thomas called Dick LeBeau "Coach Lambeau." It's OK, I once called Sunny Harris: "Ramon."— Mark Kaboly (@MarkKaboly_Trib) August 1, 2013
Even Pouncey got a few punt return reps.

Finally, Plaxico Burress and Jerricho Cotchery have some real veteran competition.

Sorry, ladies. Mr. Hochuli had a previous engagement.
Actual NFL refs at Steelers today to get a feel for things. No Eddie Guns tho. pic.twitter.com/p9yw8odvk8— Will Graves (@WillGravesAP) August 1, 2013
Probably out tomorrow, too, at this point.

Need to sharpen the blade if you want it to do any damage.

I'm sure he's one proud papa.

And now for something you'll really like.

Interesting pairing after Woodley's dissent over pass coverage.
Jason Worilds and Jarvis Jones on field at same time at both outside LB spots— Will Graves (@WillGravesAP) August 1, 2013
Let the Moans ensue.
Jarvis Jones just JJ Watt-ed Big Ben. Tipped a screen, hauled it in! #Steelers— Michael Tanier (@MikeTanier) August 1, 2013
How peculiar. Coincidence?
Haven't seen Woodley out here today. 1st tm D has Worilds on RT side and Jarvis Jones at LT edge #Steelers— Ken Laird (@Ken_Laird) August 1, 2013
Attention, NFL. You have been warned.
In the RB vs LB pass drill, Le'Veon cannot be covered.— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) August 1, 2013
More good new from Labriola. Nice to hear something positive about Golden and DCS.
Tackling again in team drills. For the defense, Golden and Cromartie-Smith step up and make tackles at the point of attack.— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) August 1, 2013
