Every Sunday during the offseason I plan on recapping for you seven items related to the Pittsburgh Steelers and the rest of the NFL that may have fallen through the cracks the past week that should be worth your time to read or watch. This weekly feature will be entitled “Steelers’ Seven Shots.”
Shot #1 – Former Steelers utility interior offensive lineman Doug Legursky turns 33 years of age today. After signing originally with the Steelers in 2008 as an undrafted free agent out of Marshall, Legursky went on to dress for 61 total regular season games during his time spent with the Steelers and started 17 times. He also made two playoff starts and was the Steelers starting center in their last Super Bowl appearance against the Green Bay Packers. Legursky, in case you forgot, also occasionally saw snaps at fullback and below is one of those plays from 2009 against the San Diego Chargers.

Shot #2 – Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster recently went to a high school prom with a young man who needed a last-minute date. A video recap of that entire evening has now been posted on Smith-Schuster’s Youtube channel and you can watch it below.
Shot #3 – 25 years ago today it was reported that the Steelers would wear uniforms from their 1933 season against the Indianapolis Colts during the 1994 regular season as part of the NFL’s 75th anniversary. The Steelers ultimately won that Week 3 game at Three Rivers Stadium 31-21 and you can see the highlights from that contest below.

Shot #4 – The Steelers annual media week took place last week and that consisted of players shooting video and picture promos in full uniform for the upcoming season. The team’s official website released several of those photos Sunday morning and a few of them would make nice screensavers or background images for your computer.
Shot #5 – Former Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward, a Georgia product, recently visited the Children’s Hospital of Georgia and Sarah LeBlanc of The Augusta Chronicle has a nice story on that.

Shot #6 – This past week, the NFL reported that the three items listed below in the short video will continue to remain key in the instant replay process. In recent calls with head coaches this past week, the league looked at several examples of both offensive and defensive pass interference to illustrate the standard for review in replay.
As a follow-up to their off-season club coaches visits, the @NFLOfficiating staff has wrapped up conference calls/webinars with the 32 head coaches.

Shot #7 – How about we close out this week’s Seven Shots with an old clip of Steelers quarterback Kordell Stewart in the team’s Oct. 5, 1997 comeback against the Baltimore Ravens. The Steelers trailed 21-0 in that game at one point.
