Okobi may be lost for season
Tuesday, August 8, 2006
By BOB LABRIOLA
Steelers.com

LATROBE, Pa. – Competitive. Enthusiastic. Resilient.

Those are some of the characteristics that made the Steelers the NFL's winningest team over the past two seasons, characteristics that will have them entering the 2006 season as the defending Super Bowl champions.

The Steelers are here working to become that kind of team again, and during Tuesday's practice, they showcased each of those things.

Teams that are resilient enough to overcome injuries are the ones that ultimately compete for the championship every year, and the Steelers tasted their first bit of real adversity today.

Chukky Okobi, the veteran backup center, was diagnosed with a possible herniated disc in his neck, and Coach Bill Cowher said the injury could threaten Okobi's 2006 season as well as his football career.

"We received some bad news. Chukky may have a herniated disc in his neck, and it could be very significant," said Cowher. "He could be having surgery, maybe as early as (Wednesday). It does not look good."

Okobi missed some practice time during the first week of training camp with a neck injury that wasn't believed to be that serious at the time. He returned to the field, but the situation didn't really get better.

"Last week, we kept him out of some of the contact, and then he came back. It's hard to say if it was any one hit," said Cowher. "He started feeling some pain going down his arm. We had him checked out, and I got the bad news just now."

If Okobi is out for the season, the primary backup to Jeff Hartings at center would appear to be sixth-round draft choice Marvin Philip. Can the rookie handle it?

"He's going to have to," said Cowher. "That's where we are."

The competitive and enthusiastic parts of this Steelers team came out at the end of the day's practice, during the one-minute drill. Instead of using the respective first teams, Cowher sent a lot of the backups who'll be involved in the latter stages of Saturday's preseason opener out onto the field.

Shane Boyd was the first quarterback to get a chance, and like all inexperienced quarterbacks he did some good things but then he made a critical mistake.

Boyd completed passes to Quincy Morgan and Cedric Humes, and then he converted a second-and-3 with a 12-yard strike to Nate Washington. But on a third-and-six, his pass for Willie Reid was intercepted by Mike Logan.

Then came Omar Jacobs. On a third-and-2, John Kuhn ran for 3 yards on a draw play, and a couple of plays later the offense was on the defense's 36-yard line. That's when many of the first-team defensive players – Deshea Townsend, Aaron Smith, James Farrior, Brett Keisel and Clark Haggans to name several – started simulating crowd noise. Then, the fans lining the hills picked it up, and Omar Jacobs got a taste of playing on the road in the NFL. Jacobs' fourth-down pass was incomplete.

CAMP NOTES: The Steelers moved Lee Vickers back to defensive end after giving him a taste of outside linebacker for the past several days. Also, Willie Colon continued to work at both tackle positions. He started out on the right side and has been trying the left side for the past couple of days.

"Lee Vickers, we moved him back to defensive line today," said Cowher. "We're going to get him ready to play. We felt he was a lot like Brett Keisel – if he's able to make this team, he can maybe play some outside linebacker, and now he has some base to work from. I think he's got a lot of upside.

"Willie Colon, you don't have the luxury in this business of having a guy who isn't going to start unable to play more than one position. We moved him to both tackle spots to see if he can swing, and he seems fine."

NIGHT PRACTICE ALERT: The Steelers will practice on Wednesday, Aug. 9 at 6 p.m. at St. Vincent College. It is the final night practice of this camp, and it's the only practice open to the public that day.

INJURY UPDATE: "Hines Ward (hamstyring) is coming along cautiously," said Cowher. "There haven't been any setbacks. He wants to get out there, kind of chomping at the bit a little bit. I think Joey Porter will be out here in pads (Wednesday)." Porter first would have to be removed from the physically unable to perform list and added to the active roster.

The separation process has begun
Monday, August 7, 2006
By BOB LABRIOLA
Steelers.com

LATROBE, Pa. – The first week is history. The first preseason game is days away. This is the time during every training camp when some guys take the next step, when some other guys begin to show they don't belong.

The Steelers returned to work on Monday after their first day off during this training camp, and they went through the fourth of the six two-a-day sessions on the schedule. Everybody is anxious for the preseason games to start, but the guys who get it also understand they need to utilize every practice along the way to hone their skills and to get noticed.

"We set pretty high standards around here, and we haven't reached those yet," said Coach Bill Cowher. "I really haven't seen anything done that well on a consistent basis. That's part of training camp. That's what this is for. We're not where we need to be, but they're working at it. And that's all I can ask at this point."

It's just sometimes he asks for it at a higher volume than others.

Rookie running back Cedric Humes got scolded for not finishing plays and for running too much sideline-to-sideline instead of up the field. Another time, Cowher made a group start a particular session over because he didn't like the tempo or the execution.

"They need to show that passion," said Cowher about the young players who are f!ghting for a roster spot. "They need to do something every day they're out here. The kicking game will have a lot to do with that, but you have to earn the right to play in the kicking game. It's not going to be handed to you.

"A lot more gets defined the longer you stay out here. I'm just looking for people who love to compete."

That's why the Steelers did another session of backs-on-backers, why they continue to work on the one-minute drill at the end of practice, so the fatigue factor approximates what the players will experience when they do it for real during a game.

"Some people will plateau," said Cowher. "You're starting to see that people are starting to get a feel for the game and they're becoming more comfortable. Some people are what they are, and the game starts to pass them by. You start to see some separation, in my opinion, of players. Not that it creates any final decisions, but it can reaffirm a judgment you may have made."

CAMP NOTES: The offense won the backs-on-backers, 9-8, but this one lacked the electricity of the previous installments. Winners for the offense included Duce Staley, Willie Parker, Verron Haynes, Humes twice, Brandon Joe, Dan Kreider, John Kuhn and Doug Easlick. Winners for the defense were Andre Frazier twice, Clark Haggans twice, James Harrison twice, Richard Seigler and Malcolm Postell.

During the first repetition of the one-minute drill, Charlie Batch's first pass was batted in the air by Brett Keisel and intercepted by Harrison, but Cowher gave the group a do-over. After the reprieve, Batch converted a third-and-8 with a 12-yard pass to Nate Washington; he converted a third-and-1 with a 20-yard pass to Willie Reid; and he hit Washington with a 14-yard pass to the 8-yard line. Then on third-and-goal, Washington drew a pass interference penalty from Tyrone Carter in the end zone, according to Cowher.

One sign that a young player is doing some things well in camp is when the coaches start teaching him additional positions. Willie Colon, who opened camp at right tackle, started taking repetitions at left tackle on Monday.

Following the afternoon practice, Cowher also addressed the Barrett Brooks situation. Brooks was arrested at 2:30 a.m. on Sunday for illegally passing a police vehicle on the right side while driving a Yamaha motorcycle on Pittsburgh's Sough Side. Brooks was charged with fleeing and eluding, reckless driving, driving at an unsafe speed and stop sign violations.

"Addressing the Barrett Brooks situation, I'm not going to go into detail until the judicial system can work its process," said Cowher. "Internally, we discussed it. I was very disappointed in the judgment he displayed on Saturday night. I talked to the football team about it, and we'll leave it at that. I certainly don't condone the actions, and certainly there is a responsibility that goes with being a professional athlete and handling yourself properly. Barrett used very poor judgment, and I'm very disappointed in him."

INJURY UPDATE:"Trai Ess3x pulled a groin, pretty significantly," said Cowher. "He'll probably miss this week's game, and it could be a week to 10 days. Joey Porter is coming along, and we're anticipating (him returning) maybe in the next two or three days. We'll still proceed cautiously with that, but I'm very encouraged with his progress. Chris Kemoeatu has a wrist injury. He had some X-rays and saw a hand specialist, and everything came back negative, so that's the good news. He'll try to work (Tuesday), and if not, then definitely Wednesday."

History Of The Steelers Logo

The Steelers logo is based on the Steelmark logo belonging to the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI). Created by U.S. Steel Corp. (now known as USX Corp.), the logo contains three hypocycloids (diamond shapes).

In the 1950s, when helmet logos became popular, the Steelers added players' numbers to either side of their gold helmets. Later that decade, the numbers were removed and in 1962, Cleveland's Republic Steel suggested to the Steelers that they use the Steelmark as a helmet logo.

When the Steelmark logo was created, U.S. Steel attached the following meaning to it: Steel lightens your work, brightens your leisure and widens your world. The logo was used as part of a major marketing campaign to educate consumers about how important steel is in our daily lives. The Steelmark logo was used in print, radio and television ads as well as on labels for all steel products, from steel tanks to tricycles to filing cabinets.

In the 1960s, U.S. Steel turned over the Steelmark program to the AISI, where it came to represent the steel industry as a whole. During the 1970s, the logo's meaning was extended to include the three materials used to produce steel: yellow for coal, orange for ore and blue for steel scrap. In the late 1980s, when the AISI founded the Steel Recycling Institute (SRI), the logo took on a new life reminiscent of its 1950s meaning.

The Steelers had to petition the AISI in order to change the word "Steel" inside the Steelmark to "Steelers" before the logo was complete.

The Steelers are the only NFL team that sports their logo on only one side of the helmet. At first, this was a temporary measure because the Steelers weren't sure they would like the look of the logo on an all-gold helmet. They wanted to test them before going all-out.

Equipment manager Jack Hart was instructed to put the logo only on one side of the helmet - the right side. The 1962 Steelers finished 9-5 and became the winningest team in franchise history to date. The team finished second in the Eastern Conference and qualified for the Playoff Bowl. They wanted to do something special for their first postseason game, so they changed the color of their helmets from gold to black, which helped to highlight the new logo.

Because of the interest generated by having the logo on only one side of their helmets and because of their team's new success, the Steelers decided to leave it that way permanently.

Today's helmet reflects the way the logo was originally applied and it has never been changed.

Porter Activated from PUP List

LATROBE, Pa.: The Steelers announced today that outside linebacker Joey Porter has been activated from the team's Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.


Porter, an eight-year veteran, was placed on the team's PUP list on July 29, while recovering from offseason knee surgery. A three-time Pro Bowl selection, Porter led all NFL linebackers with 10.5 sacks in 2005.
