Default Official Countdown to Opening Day Thread

Today, June 2nd, marks exactly 99 days until the Steelers' opening game of the season in Cleveland on September 9th.

About a month ago, Godfather came up with a great idea - an official countdown thread until opening day.

The rules are simple - for each successive day, post a player whose jersey number corresponds to the day number (today will be day 99, for example) with a picture and short bio. For the lower numbers, other significant Steelers milestones or facts can be noted - for example, on day 40, SB XL can be mentioned with facts about the game, etc.

For help with jersey numbers, here is a great site: http://www.steelergridiron.com/histo...earbyyear.html - this site has jersey numbers for the Steelers roster by year from 1933-2006 - some of the earlier years up until 1945 or so are pretty sparse with the jersey numbers, however.

days until kickoff

Levon Kirkland was a second-round draft pick out from Clemson. In his rookie season (1992), Kirkland helped spark the team's resurgence under new head coach Bill Cowher as the Steelers won the AFC Central. He played for the Steelers through the 2000 season and appeared in every regular season game during those nine seasons. His best years were 1996 and 1997. Over that two-year span he recorded nine sacks and six interceptions and was named to the Pro bowl both seasons.

Oops, you beat me to it while I was composing (I work Saturdays and didn't get home until after 6:00 Central time). Go ahead and delete mine :)

Brett Keisel has been with the Steelers for his entire four-year NFL career. He attended Brigham Young University. Brett was the Steelers? final draft pick in 2002 and was one of the seven draft selections to make the final roster. He was placed on reserve/injured list for the entire 2003-2004 season following shoulder surgery. After the departure of Kimo von Oelhoffen via free agency for the New York Jets in March of 2006, Brett won the 1st team position at right defensive end and played in all 16 games. An option is also being consider for Brett to move to outside linebacker on a full-time or part-time basis for the 2007-2008 season. Brett has signed a new four year contract with the Steelers worth a reported 14 million dollars.

98 days remain

Casey Hampton was selected out of the University of Texas in the first round with the 19th overall choice of the 2001 NFL Draft by the Steelers. He quickly emerged as a solid player in the middle of the defensive line while logging considerable time as a rookie. He played in all 48 games through his first three seasons, becoming a highly disruptive force, and winning a trip to the Pro Bowl in 2003. Six games into the 2004 season, he suffered a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and missed the remainder of that year's games. Hampton is recognized as a crucial member of the Steelers defense because of his ability to clog holes and disrupt opponent rushing attacks.
