How can we publish a Steelers draft report card before the 2018 NFL draft has even happened? We’re not grading the upcoming draft. We’re grading the 11 Steelers drafts since Mike Tomlin was hired as head coach in 2007, and we’ll finish by spinning forward a little bit to the 2018 draft. As soon as …

Steelers shouldn’t fire Mike Tomlin, at least not this year

It’s one thing for basement bloggers to call for the firing of Mike Tomlin, but it’s quite another when accomplished businessmen who own a piece of the Steelers say that. According to Pro Football Talk, some of the Steelers’ minority owners plan to petition owner Art Rooney II to give Tomlin the pink slip in the …

Steelers’ playoff loss brings anger, not heartbreak

Steelers fans have seen some heartbreaking playoff defeats. Sunday’s 45-42 AFC divisional playoff loss to the Jaguars at Heinz Field wasn’t one of them. Hearts weren’t broken, but rather TV screens, drinking glasses, maybe a cell phone or two. Any object that could have been kicked, punched or thrown by angry Steelers fans was in …

Steelers never have easy time beating Jaguars

To get to Super Bowl LII, the Steelers most likely will have to beat Tom Brady at Gillette Stadium, something they’ve never done. Before that, however, the Steelers will have to do something else they’ve never done: beat Blake Bortles in Pittsburgh. OK, so it wasn’t really Bortles who beat the Steelers in their 30-9 …

Steelers’ win over Packers is a familiar refrain

Here we go again. That sentence was thrown around verbally, mentally and musically Sunday night during the Steelers’ more-thrilling-than-it-had-to-be 31-28 win over the Packers at Heinz Field. The Packers took a 14-6 lead in the first quarter, and regained the lead in the third quarter when Brett Hundley threw a 55-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams …

Steelers rout Titans, provide reminders of LeBeau Era

Who knew that a Dick LeBeau defense would be the first to allow the Steelers to score 30 points in game this season? Not only did the Steelers break the 30-point barrier for the first time, they reached the big four-oh, beating the Titans 40-17 Thursday night at Heinz Field. After scoring 20 points in …

Steelers vs. Chiefs: 5 burning questions facing Pittsburgh

The Steelers are in a better situation this year than they were heading into their divisional round playoff game last year. Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell both are healthy and ready to go for Sunday’s game at Kansas City. Ben Roethlisberger‘s arm is fully functional. Whatever damage was done to his foot in garbage time of …

Mike Tomlin can make Steelers great again

The Steelers have staged two of the greatest comebacks in recent franchise history this week. First, they rallied from a 10-point, fourth-quarter deficit to beat the Ravens 31-27 Sunday and clinch the AFC North. Then on Tuesday, Mike Tomlin had a comeback for Terry Bradshaw‘s criticism of him last week. The former Steelers quarterback said …

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 …
