David DeCastro

DeCastro also discusses the challenge the offensive line faces next week when J.J. Watt of the Texans, who has been wreaking havoc across the NFL, comes to Heinz Field.

Lance Moore

Watt's incredible stat of already scoring 3 touchdowns for the Houston Texans and his large contract extension.

Ike Taylor

Ike Taylor has had to sit and watch the Steelers defense get exploited several times as he nurses his broken arm back to health, and the veteran cornerback gives his opinion on what is ailing the team. It essentially boils down to one word according to Taylor: consistency.

Ross Ventrone

Ross Ventrone made his debut with the Steelers Sunday, and he talks about what it felt like to run out of the tunnel wearing the black and gold, as well as making several plays on special teams. Ventrone was picked up for injured Shamarko Thomas. To make room for Ventrone on the roster, the Steelers released offensive lineman Wesley Johnson, who has since been signed been signed by the New York Jets.

Jason Worilds
