Hines Ward Shines on Dancing With The Stars.

March 22, 2011 Leave a comment

I must admit I don’t know much about ballroom dancing, but I have watched Dancing With the Stars before & Hines looked a lot better than some people I’ve seen on there. I really feel like he has a chance to win this because not only is he a guy that if he tries hard enough can get what he wants, but also because like he said coming off the loss of the Superbowl he wants to take home the Mirror Ball Trophy. Not to mention I really like his partner Kym Johnson I think she’ll be able to whip him into a dancing star.

The judges seemed to really like him too, Carrie Ann Inaba said “You are just exuberant and your smile lights up the whole stage.” Len Goodman also said “It was clean, it was crisp, you were confident.” I mean Obviously he wasn’t perfect yet and has to make improvements as the judges told him. He did score the third highest at 21 and I can see him only improving as the show goes on.

Why I Want to See Baldwin in a Steelers Jersey.

March 18, 2011 1 comment

Well it is once again time to speculate who will get drafted where and what team will take who. I know a lot of people make mock drafts, but I simply don’t patience or time. So I will simply do a series of why I want to see (Insert Steelers first pick worthy player) in a Steelers jersey. In the First installment here I want to talk about one of my favorite receivers ever Jonathan Baldwin.

First of all I think the main reason I want to see Baldwin in a Steelers jersey is just because I like him so much. I’ve followed this dude since he was in High School, and he was in probably my favorite football games of all time. This was a High school game but boy was I impressed, It ended being pretty much Terrelle Pryor Vs. Jon Baldwin. Then of course I’ve followed him in college, since he played for my favorite school. He didn’t disappoint me there either all be it he didn’t look as great as he could have, but I blame that on Pitt being unable to recruit a legit QB. However my strong obsession does not give the Steelers a legitimate reason to take Baldwin, but there are many other reasons why he would be a smart pick.

Lets get to the real reasons why I think he should be in a Steelers jersey. Well my first reason would that the Steelers need WR help. They may not need this a direly as OL or secondary help, but help at the WR position is needed. Lets take a look Hines Ward although once our #1 receiver has lost a step and is on the downside of his Career, next is Mike “THE FLASH” Wallace he is one of the top young guys at his position however he can’t do it alone he’ll need help (Baldwin), and the other two guys

Manny Sanders and Antonio Brown

Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown looked OK last year but just ok gets you a bunch of losses in the AFC Championship game. I think if they took Baldwin he would instantly be the 2nd or 3rd best WR on the team, and after a while he’d be their #1. Another strong reason why I want to see JB in a Steelers jersey is because I think he may be the best player available when they pick at 31. I think most want to see the Steelers pick an O Lineman or a Cornerback, but there may not be one available that is the worth taking in the first round. While on the other hand Baldwin is definitely worth a first round pick. Next I want to see him in a Steelers jersey because he is from Pittsburgh. Isn’t this a classic story that everyone loves to see, a hometown fella that becomes a superstar for his hometown team. Plus isn’t the NFL a business all about making money, I think it’s a good PR move. Finally wouldn’t he just look magnificent in Black and Gold?

Top Ten Steelers of the 2010 Regular Season. (Part One)

January 3, 2011 Leave a comment

Looking back at this regular season it was a success, I mean this year would be an ultimate success with a Super Bowl win. Really though a 12-4 season, an AFC north title, and a 2nd seed in the playoffs can be viewed as a successful regular season. Who contributed to this season the most is what I want to know, who were the top 10 players this season.

10. Ziggy Hood

You can’t underestimate what he has meant to this team everyone panicked when we lost our star defensive end Aaron Smith. Ziggy has stepped in quietly and been solid helping one of the best run defenses we have ever seen. His stats were  15 tackles 5 assists and 3 sacks, like I said nothing spectacular but he has stepped up when we needed it.

9.Shaun Suisham

This is again the case of someone stepping into a spot that is sort of an unsung hero. After the debacle that we as saw go down with Jeff Reed we really needed someone to step in and just do a solid job, and Suisham has done just that. He finished off the regular season completing 14 of 15 field goals, and more importantly some of those were clutch kicks that helped the Steelers get to this juncture.

8.James Farrior

Who says age is a bad thing. Farrior who is 35 and in his 14th season in the NFL showed this year that he ain’t done yet. He had an excellent year and in my opinion was one of the Steelers who was snubbed from the Pro Bowl. His final stats on the season were 109 tackles 6 sacks and 1 forced fumble. Farrior was one on the players that needed to show that he could still do his job and he sure did and that is another reason why the Steelers are where they are.

7. Hines Ward

One of the reasons I chose Ward for this spot is because he is Hines Ward, and I just wouldn’t be able to leave him off this list.  Another reason why is because I believe when they really needed someone to step up at some points the relied on him. He had 4 100 yard games this season 3 of which were in close games this shows me that in the clutch we can rely on Hines even if we can’t rely on him 100% of the time.  I also believe that he has probably helped in the development of the young guys Wallace, Sanders, and Brown. His stats 59 catches 755 yards and 5 touchdowns not the most spectacular but when combined with all the intangibles that puts him on this list.

6. James Harrison

James "Silverback" Harrison

After another solid year Harrison had to be on this list. His stats alone put him on the list 100 tackles 10.5 sacks 6 forced fumbles and 2 interceptions. Plus I think that shelling out $100,000 in fines warrants a spot on my list oh and another Pro Bowl appearance helps him out too. I almost forgot He does all this while getting held on nearly every play.
