Default Observation from Training Camp

Well now. I havnt been able to make the treck to Latrobe this year with various things going on. Although one very good friend of mine was there yesterday. And I was talking to him about it. He had some good things to say:

-Ben is looking very sharp
-The WR's are looking good
-The Defense is looking like they want to knock someone out
-Tomlin take no crap from anybody and they players know who is in charge

I asked him about the rookies and he said he didnt get to see Timmons but he did say Woodley looks like a beast out there and Sepulvada looks good as well. He also said he can tell a change in attitude this year as opposed to last year. He said this year it looks like they are hungry again. Which can only be a good thing!

All and all he said they team looks great and Tomlin looks like he has run camps in the past. He is sharp and in charg

I just wanted to let everyone know what I heard and hope the info is pleasing

Thanks for the report Buzz - sounds great! I so badly want this team to come out this year, kick ass and take names and take no prisoners and shut all the naysayers and haters up.

Good to see everyone is hungry, that reflects on the field, and when the steelers are hungry on the field they are going to kill somebody out there. Watch out Clowns

I've read that Gary Russell has looked good both blocking and running. This excites me.

I like the fact that the team seems hungry.I know nobody is happy about last season.

Tomlin is doing what he needs to do,and that is take charge.Can someone say NFL Coach of the Year?

Thanks for sharing....

I think the attitude that Willie Colon and Anthony Smith have is going to be huge for this year.......Colon has that pit bull mentality that will make the OLine nasty again.......Especially with the soft and teddy bear Max Starks out of there....

With Smith he will place fear into WR's this year.....especially his own team mates............I know Chris Hope could hit and Clark can hit...But Smith is a big time hitter and I think WR's across the NFL might start to have that in the back of their mind when they have to face Smith......

That all sounds great. I'm hoping I can get back to Latrobe this year my dad and I when to tha 1st practice all we saw was Ben and some others riding a bike and streching. Not very exciting.

Was there today! They looked very sharp for 1 week into it, Players seemed happy and upbeat as well. They practiced well today, except for the little arguments and complaints. Tell ya what I noticed.....FIRE in there eyes! Something that was definetely not there last year at this time. Its like a new franchise team and everybody trying to make it on the final roster. Very impressed and I've been going to camp for many years.
