Head Coach Mike Tomlin
Opening Statement:Another good work day for us. I liked the elements. It was hot and uncomfortable but that is part of the process. Hopefully that ages and stresses them in some ways, making them concentrate and executing in the midst of it. We don't have control over the weather. It was just a good rep to deal with the conditions like we had today. Good energy and enthusiasm with some of the things that we have been doing. Guys are working hard. We got some guys back positionaly, continuing to work guys like Daniel McCullers and Rob Golden and some other guys. Mike Mitchell and others continue to work back from their injuries, and it was just good, general work from an overall standpoint.
The Pittsburgh Steelers participated in another practice at Saint Vincent College, despite temperatures in the nineties.
Is it a good mindset to focus on the day-to-day and not worrying about what's down the road?**
Yeah because the opponent doesn't matter. Particularly at this juncture of development it's about what we do and the quality of which we do it in. There are plenty of challenges that are on these fields, and we don't have to spend a lot of time worrying about the challenge that awaits them in the stadium.
Has Markus Wheaton bring a good element to the slot?
He has been working on that. He has spent some time here with an injury and it is good to have him back out there but that is very much something that is in development.
