Pittsburgh Steelers' "Where the Cleats Meet the Gridiron" Press-Release Edition

Phillip BuntingContributor IMarch 12, 2009

Have you ever heard the Firestone Tire shibboleth, ”Where The Rubber Meets The Road”? Well, the Pittsburgh Steelers pretty much fit that bill, except it is more like, “Where The Cleats Meet The Gridiron.” Trust me, the Steelers will defend every blade of grass in 2009 with their cleats meeting the gridiron.

Starting at the beginning of the 2009 preseason, I will be writing a new series called, “Where The Cleats Meets The Gridiron.”


This new series will be a complete analysis of each game played during the Pittsburgh Steelers 2009 Preseason/Regular Season/Postseason schedules. You will also see quotes from players, coaches, and ownership, etc...


“Where The Cleats Meet The Gridiron” will be posted both on Bleacher Report and Behind The Steel Curtain.


If you have any suggestions that may be of use, feel free to leave it in the comment box.


Until then, let's think of what “Stairway to Seven” would mean to the Pittsburgh Steelers and Steeler Nation.
