Rapid Reaction – Steelers 0-for-2013

It’s been less than two hours since the Steelers dropped a tough game to the Minnesota Vikings in London, and it will be at least two more weeks before they can try to get their first win in 2013. It’s gotten so bad in the ‘Burgh that I can’t even find the joy in the …

Steelers Primer – Week 4 – at Minnesota Vikings (by way of London)

The misery continues. Unfortunately, only three weeks into the season, we can almost say with a fair amount of certainty that the Steelers will not be in the playoffs and will not be making a run for their seventh Super Bowl.

Steelers Primer – Week 3 – vs. Chicago Bears

If you go back to last year, and count this year’s preseason, the Pittsburgh Steelers have now won two of their last 13 games after Monday night’s pitiable performance against the Cincinnati Bengals. The offense showed a few signs of life late in the first half and late in the game, but too many mistakes …

Steelers Primer -Week 1 – vs. Tennessee Titans

The beginning of the season is always the hardest time to predict games. Generally, you haven’t seen much of the starting squad, players have changed during the off-season that make it hard to predict how teams will play.

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie safety Shamarko Thomas, drafted in the fourth round, told Tom Robinson of the Virginian-Pilot that he expects to be fined in the NFL because of the way he plays football. Believe or not, that should be music to the Steelers’ ears. When the Steelers cut James …

This Could Be A Make Or Break Training Camp For Curtis Brown

The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted cornerback Curtis Brown in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft and then took Cortez Allen in the fourth round. Normally, the Steelers take their time developing their corners and they don’t see much playing time in their first couple seasons. The most recent corners to pan out were Ike …

Nick Williams Looks To Become The Next Brett Keisel For The Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers love to take defensive ends later in the draft and develop them into starters in their 3-4 defense. The team drafted Aaron Smith in the fourth round of the 1999 draft and then Brett Keisel in the seventh round of the 2002 draft. Both turned into two of the better 3-4 defensive …

Will Jarvis Jones’ Rookie Season Resemble Lawrence Timmons’ or LaMarr Woodley’s’?

The Pittsburgh Steelers selected a linebacker, Jarvis Jones, in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft for the first time in six years. In the 2007 draft, the Steelers took Lawrence Timmons in the first round and LaMarr Woodley in the second round. Currently, both Woodley and Timmons are entrenched as starters for the …

Training Camp Battle: Adrian Robinson Vs. Chris Carter

The Pittsburgh Steelers are set at the starting outside linebacker positions with LaMarr Woodley and Jason Worilds. Add the fact that the team just drafted Jarvis Jones in the first round as an instant pass rusher and eventual starter and that really only leaves one roster spot left at the position. The Steelers did keep …
