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.
– Our friend Brian St. Pierre is back in the NFL having signed with the Carolina Panthers this week. Even more incredible? He split first-team practice reps with Tony Pike and could actually start Sunday’s game against Baltimore. Wow. Since being selected in the fifth-round of the 2003 draft, St. Pierre has thrown five passes, completed two, and been impersonated by one person. I have no idea how he continues to catch on with NFL teams, but he keeps finding a way.
