Special Teams Upgrade

Tuesday evening Big Dan the 'Burgh Man and I had a wide-ranging conversation regarding Steelers football; and one of the topic we touched upon had to do with the decisions to release special teams standouts Chidi Iwuoma, Arnold Harrison, and (the free agency departure of) Sean Morey.

While it is true that Steelers special teams have been a weak spot for years it is hard not to wax nostalgic about players who were effective in the role.

Happily, it seems that Kevin Colbert and Mike Tomlin have settled upon at least one player from the past who they believe may make a difference. The Post-Gazette is reporting that Anthony Madison is back in the fold.

Let us all hope that he is capable of correcting whatever it is that has been causing the kick coverage units to be so woeful.
