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 …

It’s time for the Steelers to dress more than 7 offensive lineman

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been playing with fire since the dawn of time it seems, when it comes to the offensive line.  How many more injuries will it take before the coaching staff finally decides that carrying at least 8 active linemen on game day is the way to go?  Would it be so bad …

Mike Tomlin takes responsibility for missed field goal in loss to Titans

The Steelers came into Tennessee on a short week but coming off a big win against the Eagles, and seemingly back in control after a strong performance on the ground and good defense. Things aren’t always as they appear to be if you’re a Steeler a fan, then Thursday night was never more evident of …

Onward Steelers; Three Keys to Victory in Tennessee

Let’s get this out of the way right now. It does not matter how pretty or how ugly, but the Pittsburgh Steelers should win tonight’s game in Nashville plain and simple. If they don’t, there will be blame all over the place and I guarantee you I’ll be commenting either way. As usual, I’m looking …

Onward Steelers; Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad

A guy named ‘Meat Loaf’ once sang a song called ‘Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad’ and for a baseball hitter, that’s pretty damn good. For an amateur prognosticator like myself, it isn’t too bad for me either. Last week I called out three guys on defense who I said had to play better if …

Mendenhall’s Return Has a Potential Darkside

It was great to see the Pittsburgh Steelers pull out a last-second victory on Sunday over the Philadelphia Eagles. It was great to see the defense play with some new creativity and aggression. It was also great to see Rashard Mendenhall return from his ACL injury and rush for 81 yards and a touchdown. Here …
