Chuck Noll’s Teaching Skills Helped Change Steelers History

Chuck Noll’s death on Friday at the age of 82 was hardly a surprise. He had been in poor health for a number of years. But couldn’t he have had just one more Father’s Day? Noll was more than just a football coach. Unlike many of today’s NFL coaches, he wasn’t working 18-hour days and …

Things That Need to Change in the NFL

As yet another season of exciting NFL action bears down on us, (and the drive for ring number seven begins anew for our beloved Pittsburgh Steelers), I thought I would take a minute and touch on a few things not to like about the NFL. Not to reduce our fervor and love for the game, …

Why the Pittsburgh Steelers Should Play One Game in London Every Year

During this week in which the United States celebrates its independence, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was in the country we declared independence from 237 years ago.

Cutting James Harrison Was the Wrong Move for the Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers got worse on Saturday, and they weren’t that good to begin with. The Steelers released James Harrison, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and that was a mistake.

Having had a chance to digest what I admit was a very entertaining and bizarre Super Bowl, here is what I think: Let’s just get this out of the way up front. No self-respecting, card-carrying Citizen of the original sports nation can say they are happy with how this Super Bowl played out.

What Has Todd Haley Done as Steelers Offensive Coordinator to Earn a Head Coaching Interview?

Haley had some success coaching the Kansas City Chiefs. After a 4-12 …

The game of football and especially at the professional level is about match-ups and being able to take advantage of them. Both the Steelers and Ravens have been scheming all week on how to take advantage of each other’s weaknesses. Rarely does a game seem so simple in terms of those match-ups than this one …

Ravens-Steelers Will Boil Down to the Defenses

By now you know that Ben Roethlisberger is not going to play Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens or anytime in the near future for that matter. Antonio Brown is still on the shelf as is Marcus Gilbert. Amazingly, their absences might actually place more emphasis on the defenses for Sunday Night’s match-up. The Ravens and …

Can We Get Excited About These Steelers? Why the Giants are the Measuring Stick

Anytime you feel you have a good ball club, as a head coach, you are looking for teams on the schedule that you feel will give your team their greatest challenge. I’ve learned with the National Football League that while it’s fun to look at the 16-game schedule before the season starts, it really doesn’t …

Steelers and Eagles Prove Their Are Many Ways to Run an Organization

This week, the Philadelphia Eagles fired defensive coordinator Juan Castillo after six games. Castillo was never really seen as a true defensive coordinator to be honest due to his time as an offensive line coach, but nevertheless was made the scapegoat as the Eagles continue to slide. Never mind the fact that Michael Vick has …
