Outside linebacker Ola Adeniyi came to practice today as he does every day, “Ready to take whatever reps I get and go to my fullest capacity.”

But he was also paying attention.

The second-year pro noticed outside linebacker T.J. Watt wasn’t out there.

“I think he was doing some individual stuff,” Adeniyi said.

Also, linebacker Anthony Chickillo was placed on the Reserve/Commissioner Exempt List today.

The first-team reps Adeniyi took as a result “felt like taking any regular reps,” he added.

A Different Way To Win

By: Bob Labriola,

There have been plenty of books written about the Pittsburgh Steelers, and there even was a book written by Dan Rooney himself titled, “Dan Rooney: My 75 Years with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the NFL.” But this book is different, because this one is more about him, specifically his approach to leadership, his management and organizational styles, his beliefs and philosophies.

This book is titled, “A Different Way To Win: Dan Rooney’s Story, from the Super Bowl to the Rooney Rule,” and in the words of Jim Rooney, his son and the book’s author, it’s “part business bio, part memoir, and part history.”

“I understand my father wasn’t perfect, but I do think his story is an important one to get out there, particularly in light of the fact we live in a world where there’s so much drive toward instant gratification and quick fixes and things like that,” said Jim Rooney. “What I really saw my father do was take on some big initiatives and stick with them for a very long time. If you look at his work with NFL labor, if you look at his work in Ireland, if you look at the Rooney Rule – all of those things took years and in some cases decades where he was involved with them. His impact, where he was really effective, was in playing that long game and making sure he stuck with things, and that’s what I saw that really was different about him.”

  • Steelers now turn their attention to a “new season” after their Week 7 bye.

Beginning again

By: Mike Prisuta,

With the Steelers set to resume play following their bye by hosting Miami on Monday Night Football a week from tonight, here’s a look at what’s left on the schedule:

Oct. 28 - Miami (8:15 p.m.): The Dolphins (0-6) were competitive again in Sunday’s 31-21 loss at Buffalo, as they had been in a 17-16 loss on Oct. 13 against the Redskins, but second halves remain and issue. Miami has been out-scored 113-20 in third and fourth quarters this season, and 211-63 overall.

Nov. 3 - Indianapolis (1 p.m.): Quarterback Jacoby Brissett threw for a career-high 326 yards and a career-high four touchdowns in the Colts’ 30-23 win over the Texans. Indianapolis (4-2) hasn’t allowed a 100-yard rusher in 24 consecutive games (trailing only the Saints’ 29 among active streaks). The Colts have allowed seven sacks in six games.

Nov. 10 - Los Angeles (4:25 p.m.): The Rams (4-3) snapped a three-game losing streak with a 37-10 win in Atlanta. The new-look secondary included cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who made his Rams debut after coming over in a trade with Jacksonville. Cornerback Marcus Peters has been traded to Baltimore and cornerback Aqib Talib and safety John Johnson are on the Reserve/Injured list.
