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 …

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 …

Onward Steelers; Three Guys Who Need to Show Themselves Sunday

Nothing I say will surprise you if you follow and watch the Steelers enough but I would be remiss if I didn’t attack the issue nevertheless. Many pundits and experts think that the Steelers are just fine and that whenever they show signs of age or of problems in one area or another they seemingly …

Patience will be key with injured Steelers returning to lineup

Mike Tomlin had his weekly press conference on Tuesday, and among the hot topics was the status of injured players James Harrison, Troy Polamalu, and Rashard Mendenhall. According to Tomlin each practiced on Monday and the team will see how the players do throughout the week before making a final decision on their playing status. …

Are the Steelers really facing a must-win game against the Eagles?

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, …

Don’t Expect Much in the Way of Changes from Steelers’ D.

I feel like I’ve been in some form of twilight zone over the past week because I swear I’ve had the same conversation over and over. Perhaps the scariest part is that it wasn’t any twilight zone, it was reality and for every conversation I’ve had about the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense it always ends the …

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 …
