Steelers finally feast on Thanksgiving, rout Colts

The Steelers broke a Thanksgiving tradition Thursday by actually winning on Thanksgiving. Except maybe for Antonio Brown‘s first career game with three touchdown catches, nothing happened in the Steelers’ 28-7 win at Indianapolis that will be talked about a decade or two from now. Pat McAfee‘s successful fake punt is just the kind of thing that …

Dolphins 30, Steelers 15: Steelers full report card

Where have we seen this before? Once again the Steelers laid a big egg against an NFL weakling, falling to the Dolphins 30-15 Sunday. Unless the Dolphins (2-4) really are as good as the Steelers made them look Sunday, this will be the fifth straight year the Steelers (4-2) have lost to a team that …

Eagles give Steelers a beating for the ages

It would be cute to say that the Steelers suffered their first crack of the 2016 season in the home of the Liberty Bell. But the Eagles inflicted a hell of a lot more than a crack in their 34-3 win Sunday. So many young, innocent Steelers fans have never seen their team beaten so badly …

Steelers Fans Didn’t Hide Their Love for Dick LeBeau

There’s a place in New York City where dozens of people, men and women both, proclaim their love for Dick on Sunday afternoons in the fall. The patrons at Hibernia, a Steelers bar in the Hell’s Kitchen section of Manhattan, shouted “We love Dick! We love Dick! We love Dick!” in unison whenever Steelers defensive coordinator …

It’s Sad to See the 2014 Pittsburgh Steelers Go

For the fourth straight year, the Pittsburgh Steelers have either missed the playoffs or gone one-and-done in the playoffs. Saturday’s 30-17 wild-card loss to the Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh brings about another long offseason for the Steelers and their fans. There will be plenty of time for mock drafts and free-agency wish lists. Right now, …

LeGarrette Blount Gives Patriots New Way to Torment Steelers

Apparently, leaving the Steelers bleeding in a ditch wasn’t good enough for the Patriots. Bill Belichick figured he’d twist the knife one more time by signing LeGarrette Blount. The Steelers dropped their weapons, put their hands up and took two steps back after they were steamrolled 55-31 at New England last year. The Steelers-Patriots rivalry …

Can the Steelers Still Count on Beating Rookie Quarterbacks?

Just when it seems the Pittsburgh Steelers hit rock bottom, a rookie quarterback awaits on their schedule. Losing to inferior competition has become a habit in recent years, but the Steelers seemed to dip to a new low last week. Not only was that a winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers team that beat them with a last-minute …

Chuck Noll’s Teaching Skills Helped Change Steelers History

Chuck Noll’s death on Friday at the age of 82 was hardly a surprise. He had been in poor health for a number of years. But couldn’t he have had just one more Father’s Day? Noll was more than just a football coach. Unlike many of today’s NFL coaches, he wasn’t working 18-hour days and …

Pittsburgh Steelers Hire Mike Munchak, Convert a Rival

It wasn’t easy to watch Mike Munchak shaking hands with his assistants on that September afternoon after the Tennessee Titans had secured a Week 1 victory at Heinz Field. That wasn’t supposed to happen. Sure, few predicted the Pittsburgh Steelers would go 13-3 or 12-4 in 2013, but the Steelers weren’t expected to lose at …

Pittsburgh Steelers: 2013 Report Card for Defense, Special Teams and Coaching

No more pencils, no more books for the 2013 Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers did get some dirty looks from their fans during their second consecutive non-playoff season, and most of them came when they were on defense. These grades for the defensive line, linebackers, defensive backs, special teams, defensive coordinator and head coach won’t be …
