Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Friday Wakeup Call: Steelers seek identity anew

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media

Morning, lunatics …


>> The Friday notes column is led by — what else? — the Steelers’ No. 1 pick, Jarvis Jones. You’ll also find more in there on football, plus pucks and baseball.

Here, too, is our news coverage by Alan Robinson.

And here’s Jones’ official NFL Draft profile video …

The second round begins at 6:30 p.m., but I’m guessing the main event around here will be Jones’ news conference at 5 p.m. on the South Side.

In the interim, let’s hear from you about this pick. Delighted? Disappointed?

>> The chat transcript covered a continent-sized scope of topics.

>> Never mind the Penguins’ immaterial game in Newark. The headline here was that Sidney Crosby’s return to practice today.

>> Yesterday was a bad day in a place I really like.

>> That said, these guys have it even worse.

>> The Pirates brought out the chicken wire again, including a two-inning save for Tony Watson and three of four in Philadelphia. They’re playing some persistent ball.

>> I’ll visit with TribLIVE Radio at 11:30 to talk NFL Draft.
