Tomlin rules out Polamalu for Thursday night; Woodley not likely to play

Mike Tomlin wasted little time ruling out Troy Polamalu for the Thursday night game in Tennessee. After coming up lame in the first half of the Eagles matchup at Heinz Field on Sunday, Polamalu hobbled off the field, got his calf iced down and went to the locker room. Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review …

The Steelers get a big win on Sunday afternoon at Heinz Field as they defeated the their intrastate rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles, 16-14. That’s the good news! They did what they had to do, finding a way to win and get to 2-2 on the year. Now for the bad news; those all too familiar …

Steelers historically do well at home against NFC teams

Steelers vs Eagles

Perhaps playing the Philadelphia Eagles will be just what the doctor ordered for the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday at Heinz Field. I’m certainly not suggesting that playing the Eagles is going to be a cakewalk, not by a long stretch. However, for a team at 1-2; looking to right the ship that has so far …

Steelers looking for break out ground attack vs Eagles?

Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall

This Sunday at Heinz Field would be as good a time as any to have a breakout game in the rushing department if you’re the Pittsburgh Steelers. Heck, any week is a good time to have a good performance on the ground if you want to live by what the mantra of old in Pittsburgh; …

It’s hard to imagine that our beloved Steelers are sitting at 1-2, and may be facing a must win situation this Sunday against the Eagles. It’s even harder to think that in week 5 you have a must win game period. The proverbial “there’s a lot of football left” adage does indeed still ring true, …

How much will Rashard Mendenhall really help the Steelers rushing attack?

The Steelers running game is tied for last in the league through the first 3 weeks of the season (3 way tie with the Raiders and Titans). Pittsburgh is averaging just 2.6 yds per rush and has a combined pitiful 195 yds total rushing. If that doesn’t make you cringe as a Steeler fan, I …

Steelers Finding Themselves in Limbo With Harrison?

I think we all realize that the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense is better with James Harrison on the field than off. You could certainly argue even at 75% Harrison would be a better option than either Chris Carter or Jason Worilds. The problem really doesn’t revolve around that though because what it deals with is simply …

No guarantee that James Harrison & Troy Polamalu can fix Steelers defense

After the debacle that was the Steelers loss to the Raiders on Sunday at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, there is plenty of blame to go around across the entire team. As Mike Tomlin would say, you win as a team and you lose as a team. No one person causes a loss any more than one …

Steelers defense; lack of scheme, lack of talent, or something else?

It’s hard for anyone in the Steeler Nation to admit when the defense is just not what it used to be. We’re a proud group of fans cheering for a proud team with an amazing history that nobody can ever take away. Ok maybe it’s not hard for some and unfortunately it’s getting easier to …
