Just a few weeks ago, it looked like the Pittsburgh Steelers couldn’t afford to keep Jason Worilds in 2014. The 25-year-old Worilds becomes an unrestricted free agent after this season. In his first three seasons, the outside linebacker had just 10 sacks. Considering their salary-cap constraints, it seemed like a no-brainer for the Steelers to …

Pittsburgh Steelers’ Dominating Win Over Buffalo Bills Is Just Like Old Times

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ 23-10 win over the Buffalo Bills Sunday was the sort of tidy, comfortable victory that used to be as much a part of autumn in Pittsburgh as pumpkins and squash.

New England Patriots Conquer Pittsburgh Steelers, End Rivalry

It’s over. The Pittsburgh Steelers season? Well, we knew that was over. We knew that before Sunday’s pitiful 55-31 loss to the New England Patriots. There will be plenty of time to write a eulogy for the 2013 Steelers. For now, it’s time to wave the white Terrible Towel and surrender to the Patriots. They …

Steelers Primer – Week 8 – At Oakland Raiders

Two wins in a row, and win against a hated foe. That’s better. Moreover, the running game actually looked good against the ravens. I’m not saying the Steelers’s problems are solved and they are on the way to a seventh Super Bowl, but at least it looks like they are not on their way to …

William Gay Proving Critics Wrong In 2013

When William Gay signed with the Arizona Cardinals following the 2011 season, there wasn’t a happier fan than me. I don’t disagree that Gay had a decent final season with the Steelers, I could never get image of him being repeatedly burned against the Green Bay Packers in the Super Bowl. That entire 2010 season …
