Steelers 28, Bengals 21: Antonio Brown provides finishing touch

It was getting to be time to ban all WiFi references involving Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown. That whole theme had kind of been beaten to the ground. CBS even did a graphic on it, for crying out loud. But then with 10 seconds left in the Steelers’ game at Cincinnati on Sunday, Roethlisberger’s game-winning 31-yard …

Steelers 41, Falcons 17: T.J. Watt must keep leading defense

The Steelers have taken a defensive player in the first round of the draft six years in a row and counting. Before 2013, their longest string of first-round defensive draft picks had been two years. That draft strategy hadn’t exactly paid off through the first four weeks of the 2018 season. Part of the problem …

Ravens 26, Steelers 14: Defense fails early, Roethlisberger falters late

How bad is the Steelers’ defense? It’s reached the point where all it takes to beat the Steelers is an adequate starting quarterback. The Steelers fell to Joe Flacco and the Ravens 26-14 Sunday night at Heinz Field, falling to 1-2-1. Flacco is the last career starter that the Steelers defeated, and even then they gave …

Steelers’ first win of 2018 is collection of breakout games

The Steelers no longer are among the huddled masses of the NFL’s winless teams after their 30-27 win at Tampa Bay Monday night. They stay out of the AFC North basement, they have a better record than the Patriots and we will not have to re-live the horror of 2013’s 0-4 start. That’s the good …

James Washington could give Steelers scary wide receiver depth

A six-pack of Steelers thoughts, some longer than others, to crack open at the tailgate for Saturday’s preseason game against the Titans at Heinz Field: Receivers It doesn’t look like Martavis Bryant will win the Gruden Grinder award anytime soon. The Raiders’ coach traded a third-round pick to the Steelers for Bryant, and according to the …

If Le’Veon Bell wants $14.5 million per year, Steelers should pay him

The big news in the world this week is that a guy who likes to play around on social media went to a summit meeting in Singapore. No, it wasn’t Le’Veon Bell. Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un have done more negotiating than Bell and the Steelers. It’s been a nuclear spring and summer between the two sides when it …

Here’s what Ben Roethlisberger should have said about Mason Rudolph

It’s cool that the Steelers are bringing back their vintage 1970s jerseys with the block numbers and letters when they host the Browns on Oct. 28 at Heinz Field. Since that game is three days before Halloween, however, wouldn’t it have been better if both the Browns and Steelers had worn color-rush jerseys, with the …

Steelers: Top 10 candidates to replace Martavis Bryant in draft

Virginia Tech safety Terrell Edmunds could turn out to be a fine draft pick for the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, his selection in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft has been overshadowed both by the fact that Ryan Shazier announced the pick and what the Steelers did earlier on Thursday night. They traded Martavis Bryant …

Steelers 2018 7-round mock draft: Pittsburgh makes stunning Day 1 trade

There’s always a lot of wheeling and dealing that happens at the NFL draft, but the Steelers aren’t usually a part of it. They might make some trades in the later rounds, but they’ve only traded up in the first round twice this century. They moved from 27 to 16 in 2003 to get Troy …
