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 …

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 …

That was probably the only time on Sunday evening that you could say that about the Steelers defense quite honestly. Everyone in Raider land and I’m sure all of the Steeler haters across the globe will say that Steelers Safety Ryan Mundy lead with his head and intentionally went after Darrius Heyward-Bey on that endzone …

For the Steelers, the dreaded trap scenario looms large in week 3

No coach in the NFL will openly admit that an upcoming opponent is potentially a trap game. Doing so immediately gives bulletin board material to the other team and makes you appear that you are clearly superior. Even if that is the case it’s just not a can of worms that you want to open. …

Mike Tomlin had his weekly press conference on Tuesday and of course the subject of injuries is always at or near the top of the list. This week, a hot topic was the status of James Harrison and Troy Polamalu for this Sunday’s game in Oakland. According to Tomlin, they will be listed as day …

Still no need to rush back Rashard Mendenhall for the Steelers

Rashard Mendenhall has been fully practicing this week but there is still no official word on when he will return to the lineup. If I’m Mike Tomlin, there’s no way I even consider letting Mendenhall back into the active lineup at least until after the bye week. Whether or not that turns out to be …

We don’t yet know for sure whether James Harrison will return to his familiar Outside Linebacker position this Sunday afternoon at Heinz Field. Whether it’s this week or next week or the week after, his importance to the team is not something that you can over look. We Steeler fans know all too well what …
