Onward Steelers; No Excuses for the Offense This Week

If you go by what Pittsburgh Steelers’ owner Art Rooney, Jr said in his post-2011 season comments, the need for a new offensive coordinator was to help Ben Roethlisberger ‘tweak’ his game, get better in the red zone and return the team to a more solid running attack. Exit Bruce Arians and enter Todd Haley. …

For Some, It’s Always Ben’s Fault

Ben Roethlisberger is in a no-win situation and while some of it may be of his own doing, the fact is that he just can’t win no matter what he does on the field anymore. If he gets the Steelers a lead in the second half and the team still loses, it’s his fault. If …

Steelers’ Special Teams Anything but Special

Is it really that hard? Is it really so difficult not to hold a guy or hit a guy from behind? Isn’t the old saying “if you see his name don’t hit him?” Being a special teams’ player is not easy because quite often it really does take a rare breed to do it. Right …

Steelers Get A Much-Needed Win, But Much To Work On

I’m not sure who received game balls last night in the visitor’s locker room at Paul Brown Stadium, but I certainly hope guys like Willie Colon and Heath Miller received one. I would also make sure coaches Todd Haley and Offensive Line Coach Sean Kugler got one as well. It was obvious they knew Mike …

Onward Steelers; Show Me Some Fire!

I’m to the point right now where I really don’t want to hear anymore about scheme or play-calling or injuries or if Ben is mad at Haley or if out throwbacks are really that ugly (yes they are). Instead, how about we see some fire and intensity from this team? How about someone get in …

Steelers and Eagles Prove Their Are Many Ways to Run an Organization

This week, the Philadelphia Eagles fired defensive coordinator Juan Castillo after six games. Castillo was never really seen as a true defensive coordinator to be honest due to his time as an offensive line coach, but nevertheless was made the scapegoat as the Eagles continue to slide. Never mind the fact that Michael Vick has …

Onward Steelers; Like It or Not, Time for Back-Ups to Step Up

Head Coach Mike Tomlin came down from on high for his weekly press conference and announced what sounded more like a list of soldiers in the infirmary rather than a list of injured football players. Rashard Mendenhall, Isaac Redman, Maurkice Pouncey were called ‘questionable.’ Troy Polamalu, Marcus Gilbert and Chris Carter are each ‘out’ for …

Steelers’ Ta’amu can consider himself fortunate to only get a 2 week suspension

If there’s one thing that the Rooney’s do not tolerate above all else, it’s dumb decisions that tarnish the reputation of their team in Pittsburgh. As rookie NT Alameda Ta’amu found out today, there is no substitute for good, sound, judgment and the penalties for a lack thereof are not to be taken lightly. Many …

Steelers must play with sense of desperation to get back on track

Saying that a Steelers team is desperate when we haven’t even reached the halfway point of the season is sometimes met with a “are you serious” or “not hardly” type of a response. Fortunately as fans of the Steelers, we don’t usually have these types of conversations this early in the year, if at all …

No Mike, It IS the Process

Pittsburgh Steelers’ Head Coach Mike Tomlin was asked in his post-game comments last evening following a horrible 26-23 loss to Tennessee if these road woes are a product of the process and whether or not it needs to be changed. In his typical and uninspired coach-speak, he said he “doubts”  it’s the process and I …
