Steeler Games to Cost More

For the fifth time in eight seasons the cost of a Pittsburgh Steeler ticket will go up. According to reports from Pittsburgh Tribune-Review the cost of a ticket could go from $92 in 2011 to $100 in 2012.  According to the report, specific details of the increase were unknown. But a letter to season-ticket holders, the Steelers explained the increase by stating that it was done to “meet the challenges of remaining competitive in the National Football League”.

The Steelers did not raise ticket prices last year. The team has had a tough offseason cutting fan favorite veteran players Hines Ward, Aaron Smith, James Farrior, and Chris Kemoeatu. The Steelers have also reworked the contracts of many players to get under the salary cap. The cost of the tickets going up will help the team pay for the bonuses in all the new contracts. But cost of the tickets will be forgotten if the Steelers continue to win.

    What is everyone’s top three draft wish list?

    1- Dontari Poe DT Memphis. This man is a monster and would be able to solidify the defensive line and replace Casey Hampton. 6’4 346lbs would be perfect for the heir apparent to Hampton.

    2- Dre Kirkpatrick CB Alabama. Cornerback is still an abvious need for the Steelers in the new era of the NFL when the 4000 yard milestone is now very common. After getting Tebow’d this need became more evident. I believe Lewis and the rest of our younger secondary could potentially become good players, but when William Gay is still our number 2 cornerback, we definitely need an upgrade.

    3- Dont’a Hightower ILB Alabama. I am a little apprehensive about taking Hightower, there is no doubt he is going to be an impact player for our defense, however I am worried that his speed will not be able to cover the new breed of tightend. Drafting Hightower would give the Steelers youth at the middle linebacker position for years to come.

    What I believe the Steelers should do is after this season move James Harrison to the ILB and make him have the Farrrior role of stopping the run and give Worilds his chance to start alongside Woodley.
    It was definitely hard not to put any Offensive lineman in my top 3, fortunately this is actually a deep draft for the O-Line and I would like to think the Steelers would move up in the draft if the right person should fall.
