The last time the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted a rookie who made an immediate impact and started opening day was Kendrell Bell in 2001, but first-round draft pick Ryan Shazier has all the skills of an NFL starter and the backing of defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau.
We’ve listed off a few of the Ravens’ rivalries that have been (and still are) our favorites.
Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette joined Ed and Steve to talk about the Steelers and Ravens rivalry soon to have a new chapter written.
Jason Cole of Bleacher Report joined Glenn Younes on Sports Rehab to talk about the news of the week around the NFL as teams head into Week 3 of the preseason.
The Carolina Panthers cut the face of the franchise, Steve Smith, and let the only other three wide receivers on the roster that caught a pass last season leave as free agents. Tight end Greg Olsen is the only proven receiver returning from last season’s squad. Olsen should be Cam Newton’s favorite target this season.
So it is with my jaded view of the world that I address the Ben Roethlisberger – Emmanuel Sanders feud. Sanders said that his new quarterback, Peyton Manning, is a much better leader than his old quarterback, Big Ben. And thus the verbal jousting began, feathers flexed, talons out.
Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette joined Ed and Steve to talk about the upcoming Orioles vs Pirates series.
Man, was it a surprising week-end in the NFL, and it looks like the Ravens need to sweep to get in the playoffs.
But no matter how black or gold my allegiance, no matter how nostalgic I feel about them. and no matter how deep the Rooney roots run in NFL history, there’s no excuse for their head coach’s conduct on Thanksgiving.
Ron Cook joined Ed and Steve this morning talk about Mike Tomlin and the AFC North.
Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was fined $100,000 for interfering with a kick return in Baltimore. The NFL is also considering a modification or forfeiture of draft choices.
The Ravens are 6-6, and I am not convinced they are much better than an average team. That said, it should be enough to get them in the playoffs.
