I was born and raised in Erie, PA with a love of football. When I was a young boy, my uncle tried to brainwash me into becoming a Dallas Cowboys fan. He would sit me in front of the TV and put on Cowboys film from the 90’s. One day, out of the blue, I broke free from the hypnosis I was under and escaped from the dark side. It was then I decided I would follow in my grandfather’s footsteps and become a Steelers fan. I am married to my best friend, Emily, and we have two beautiful little girls. I’m a Physical Education teacher by trade, but I’m the biggest football fan you will ever meet. I love writing about football, and I co-own and operate my own football website,, with my cousin and brother. I’m a straight shooting fan who tries to be as objective as possible, even when it means other Steelers fans might disagree with me. I tell it like I see it.

Why speed is the biggest predictor of successful NFL cornerbacks

The 2019 draft class has stirred up a lot of debate as to what makes a good NFL cornerback. Some players like Byron Murphy  and Deandre Baker win with excellent footwork and sound technique. Others, like Greedy Williams or Sean Bunting, win with a great combination of length and athleticism. ...

Breaking down the 2019 linebacker class

This year's linebacker class is nothing to ride home about. It's strong up front with three linebackers worthy of top 50 picks, but despite all the athleticism we witnessed from this group at the NFL Combine, this linebacker class is pretty weak overall. After the Combine, I charted the top ...

Le’Veon Bell would not have saved the Steelers season

Le'Veon Bell is a former All-Pro running back, and Steelers fans have a right to be frustrated that he elected to sit this season out. However, to say that his absence was the reason the Steelers didn't make the playoffs this year is a naive train of thought. To start, ...

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown

Why the Steelers need to trade Antonio Brown

Two years ago, I wrote an article on why the Steelers should part ways with All-Pro running back, Le’Veon Bell. Now I am doing the same for Antonio Brown. Despite being a First Team All-Pro player at the age of twenty-two, and being among the league leaders in rushing three ...
