Default Been to Camp this Year? Please Share Your Thoughts!

Not really sure how to post this, as i wanted it to get some attention from the mods. For those of us who aren't able to get much info from TC, it's nice to read a few of the articles about the position battles, injury updates, etc. etc ....

BUT ...

... Is there any way we could get a little more indepth and keep an updating list of the good and bad news from TC. I saw this on another steelers forum, Just a simple list that we can add to every day after camp.

i.e.

Good:
-Anthony Smith is knockin the buhjesus out of some people.
-Ben is lookin sharp on his throws and seems to have his swag back.

Bad:
-Timmons nagging injury (just an example!)
-____________ seems to have a case of the "dropsies"


... something like that, take it away mods.

Great idea, Paw - I am also nowhere near Latrobe for camp, so I'd also like to add the twist of hearing the impressions of folks who can get to TC in person. I'll modify the title a bit and sticky this.

For any members who are going to TC, or have gone out to watch already, your thoughts about what you saw and what you liked/didn't like in context to the team practices would be greatly appreciated.

I went Friday night. One of the 'lesser knowns' who stood out to me was Capizzi. He managed to keep Harrison and Keisel out of the backfield. By no means am I ready to praise the kid to no end, but he looked good when I saw him Friday night. Possibly another UDFA Steeler gem? Who knows. Let me restate that......possibly another UDFA Steeler gem standing at 6 feet 9? That boy ate his pasta when he was a youngin'.

I like Capizzi, maybe is because of his size, but i've only head good things about him, hope he makes the team at least as a backup

Hopefully he impressed Tomlin as well. The guy definitely has some impressive size. At 6 feet 9 this guy is a beast. Hopefully this guy turns out to be a hidden gem.

Just got back a little while ago from TC. The guys worked their tails off and were quite intense!

Several players really stood out to me, the first being Sean Mahan. During the OL/DL one-on-one matchups, he stopped every guy he faced, even Big Snack - LOL! That guy is as strong as an ox. These guys were bringing it and got so intense they were doing a bit of head slapping and cursing out of frustration when they couldn't get around Mahan and Colon. Brett Kiesel is a beast - he looked like a Mack truck.

Ben also looked very in sync with most of his receivers. I paid close attention to Rasheed Marshall who caught some very nice passes, as did Santo and Willie Reid.

It was a great day overall, but very hot and muggy. I felt like I was in a sauna, so I can only imagine how the guys felt. I got to hand slap Troy, Tyrone Carter and Farrior on their way down to the field - I shall never wash my right hand again!

I'll have some pictures to post either tonight or first thing in the morning.

Nice report Hometown.....I remember reading one of the knocks on Mahan was he maybe wasn't strong enough to handle the big NTs across the NFL.....Thats sweet to hear he is looking strong and holding his own against the best NT in the NFL in Casey Hampton....

I'm so pumped about Willie Colon...I think his attitude alone will make the Oline better....As for Keisel he has a shot for 10 sacks this year especially how LeBeau wants to move him around this year...

Glad to hear Ben is in sync......All reports from everyone is he is having a great camp......

Look forward to your pics......
