Steelers turn to JuJu Smith-Schuster in win over Lions

If you’re a Steelers fan and an NFL draft junkie, the moment JuJu Smith-Schuster was drafted doesn’t quite measure up to the moment Ben Roethlisberger was drafted. When Roethlisberger in that pinstripe suit spoke to his new coach on the phone, those of us watching on TV saw a turning point in Steelers history even if …

Steelers defense shines again in win over Bengals

Oh yeah, the Steelers have Joe Haden. Somehow a two-time Pro Bowl cornerback acquired from a division rival has flown under the radar this season despite playing more than 98 percent of the Steelers’ defensive snaps. That’s a good thing. It means Haden, who the Steelers signed after he was cut by the Browns, hasn’t …

Steelers beat Chiefs at Arrowhead, point season in right direction

Raise your hand if you played the Win-Loss-Win-Loss game with the Steelers’ schedule back in August and put Ws next to “at Chicago” and “Jacksonville” and Ls next to “at Baltimore” and “at Kansas City.” We got it backwards. We’re used to the Steelers failing to pick up the easy wins, but this year they’re juxtaposing those ugly losses …

Is Ben Roethlisberger washed up?

Jaws dropped when Ben Roethlisberger said after the AFC championship game that he’s contemplating retirement. After the Steelers’ 30-9 loss to the Jaguars on Sunday, their worst home loss in 11 years, Roethlisberger said something that suggests he won’t just be thinking about it after this season. In the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, he was quoted as saying: …

Steelers sharpen their focus, rout Ravens

Let’s get this straight. The Steelers lose to a Bears team that has lost its three other games by an average of 16 points, then they go and win at Baltimore for the first time since 2012. When we print out those Steelers schedules in April, we pretty much pencil in  an “L” next to “at Baltimore” …

Steelers again fail to bear down against weak opponent

Another face plant against a cellar-dwelling opponent. Another collective face palm across Steelers Nation. The Steelers did it again. They lost to yet another team they should have had no problem beating, upholding a dubious tradition that’s been an unfortunate undercurrent of Mike Tomlin’s tenure as head coach. With sole possession of first place in …

Steelers can’t let Pennywise the Quarterback beat them

Normally, this is the kind of week where we wave the caution flag about a Steelers letdown. The Steelers take their 2-0 record to Chicago Sunday to face the 0-2 Bears, who are in the bottom 10 of the NFL in points scored and points allowed. On one hand, the Steelers have been bitten by …

Steelers 21, Browns 18: Ugly Steelers win is nothing to worry about

On the surface, the Steelers’ 21-18, season-opening win in Cleveland Sunday was a lot more interesting than it had to be. The Browns encapsulated nearly two decades of misery into the first seven minutes of the game. Their first possession ended with a punt that was blocked by Tyler Matakevich and recovered in the end …

Predicting each game of the Steelers’ 2017 season

The Steelers already are entering the 2017 season with high hopes, and what we saw on Thursday night did nothing to diminish those expectations. We caught a glimpse of an AFC landscape in which the Patriots aren’t invincible. Now that the countdown to the Steelers’ season opener can be measured in hours and not days or …

Six former Steelers we didn’t know were still in the NFL

How many times have you heard an NFL player’s name and thought to yourself, “I didn’t know he was still in the league.” It turns out there are plenty of former Steelers who are now toiling in obscurity for other teams. It’s not like the Steelers made a mistake letting any of these guys get away, …
