Mat McBriar

As predicted, the Steelers Tuesday officially made a move at the punter spot, waiving Zoltan Mesko and signing Mat McBriar.

Mesko in seven games was not very good for the Steelers, as he was 16th in the AFC and 31st in the NFL among punters with a 36.7-yard net average. He punted 34 times, with only three inside the 20-yard line.

As foe McBriar, he was with the Cowboys for eight seasons, and has been in the league for 10 years. He was born in Melbourne, Australia, and began as an Australian rules football player. He played at the University of Hawaii.

He played not only for Dallas, but also spent time with the Seahawks and Broncos. He’s a two-time Pro Bowler, 2006 and 2010.

  1. As much as I value the consistency I have to point to Tomlin for some of the record. It looks like the Steelers are never prepared and sort of fumble their way through the first quarter and then pick up some rythmn. Preparation seems poor and thats on the coach. Mesko sucked but they were already down 7.

    • I blame Tomlin for all of our losses. It starts with his inability to evaluate talent. Mesko is just another case. The team is never ready for a game! All the blame is the head coaches, so Tomlin has to go so we can get a head coach that knows how to run a team.

  2. THIS MAN SPEAKS THE TRUTH,THAT OUR SO CALLED SPORTS ANNOUNCERS WOULD’NT DO.TOMLIN IS THE ” ROONEY RULE ” AND THEY WILL NOT GET RID OF HIM UNTIL THE FANS STOP COMINGTO THE GAMES.ALSO DICK LABEAU SHOULD NOW BE RETIRED TO THEOLD AGE HOME,AND GET A DEFENSIVE COACH WITH NEW PLAYS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
