Morning Links (and Daily Thread)…

A quick daily look at what’s happening around Steelers Nation. And consider this your open thread for discussing the days events and, well, anything else that comes to mind about the Black and Gold.

– Well, that was fun  yesterday analyzing Kevin Colbert’s draft record, but now it’s time to move on to other things: like the 2010 season.

– The Steelers added a player to their practice squad on Tuesday by signing former 2008 third-round draft pick Chris Ellis. [Pittsburgh Post Gazette]

– In semi-related news, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Al Woods off of the Steelers practice squad. I’m not sure what we’re going to have to analyze this blockbuster today… [Jason LaCanfora on Twitter]

– Brett Keisel is expected to return on Sunday. [NFL From The Sidelines]

– And for your random YouTube of the day: Anybody ever watch WKRP in Cincinnati? Well, then you’ll like this. I believe this came out during the 2005 playoffs.

    Now that all of the doom and gloom is out and we’ve realized that the Steelers are pretty good at putting together a contending football team, I’d like to point out that the Browns tried the same game plan as the Saints on defense. That is, blitz like crazy and have man coverage behind it. However in that case the Steelers were able to hit their hot reads and burn the Browns deep a couple of times when they picked up the blitz.

    Just goes to show that it’s the personnel more than the scheme. I also think that the crowd noise was a huge factor in the offense being out of sync for the first half.

      A random impression I got watching the early part of the game (didn’t really see second half, west coast haloween party) was that the offense looked like it expected to fail. You know that attitude when you go out and try but there’s a sense of futility? Maybe I’m projecting or something, but their play seemed pretty flat and lifeless like they didn’t expect to win their battles, and I think it cost them.
