Since, the Pittsburgh Steelers defeat in Super Bowl XLV, a lot has gone on during the off-season. Woodley accepted the franchise tag, Keisel shaved his beard for charity, and the Steelers hired Carnell Lake as the new defensive backs coach.
Other news in the NFL, many talks have taken place in order to discuss a new bargining agreement between the players and owners. As fans of the game, no one wants to hear about millionaires and billionaires talk about dividing billions of dollars, we want to see football! But, since greed is the root of all evil, the owners have now locked out the players and now the game of football is in jeopardy.
Well, Steeler Nation no matter what, we still have things to look forward to. One, is the NFL draft that I will talk about in the near future. It will be held on April 28th, here you can check out one the NFL’s mock drafts. Don’t worry I will tell you who I think the Steelers need to pick soon enough!! You can also check out the NFL’s state of the Steelers franchise if you click here.
The second, our very own Hines Ward will be gracing the stage on the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars. On March 21st on ABC, Hines Ward teams up with Kym Johnson to take the stage. It is good to know that during his off-season, Hines will continue his great footwork and hand skills to prepare him to take the field for the 2011 season. Whether he is cathing his partner on the stage or a football on the field, we will be sure to see Hines grace Steeler Nation with his beloved smile.
So get ready Steeler Nation, we are off to an exciting year!!!!
