Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Wednesday Wakeup Call: What to do with 92?

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media

>> The Wednesday column looks at all the tough calls the Steelers have to make in the next couple weeks … and concludes that there really aren’t any at all.

I’ll ask you right here: Are you in favor of cutting James Harrison for the cap space?

Don’t pull any punches here, either. My own feeling on this is expressed in the column, but I’d like to hear from you. And bear in mind, team considerations have to be weighed, too.

>> I’ll be on NFL Network live at 6 a.m. — the ‘NFL AM’ show — to discuss the column. Wait till those people get a load of me on about two hours of sleep.

Here’s yesterday’s TribLIVE Radio show podcast, featuring special guest Paul Chryst of Pitt football. And here’s video of the monologue on the Penguins’ professional reaction to the Evgeni Malkin hit …

>> Terribly undisiciplined effort by the Penguins last night in Sunrise. Rob Rossi reports.

Talk all you want about Tomas Vokoun, but any team that takes four — four! — offensive-zone penalties by forwards is begging to lose that game.

>> The NHL’s latest realignment plan is out, and I like it better than the others I’ve seen. From a Pittsburgh perspective, once I see Penguins and Flyers in the same division, then add in the Capitals and all the New York teams, I have no issue.

>> Pitt’s got South Florida at home tonight and, man, could they use some buckets. I’m hoping to make it out to the Pete to catch that, in advance of leaving tomorrow for Bradenton.
