Pittsburgh Steelers Defeat Baltimore Ravens, But Still Have Some Work to Do on Defense

Did anyone else expect to see Ben Roethlisberger go all Jim Valvano and run across the Heinz Field turf desperately looking for Charlie Batch after Sunday’s game? Aren’t Batch and Roethlisberger supposed to engage in a minute-long bro hug whenever Shaun Suisham kicks a last-second field goal in a Pittsburgh Steelers’ win over the Baltimore …

Steelers Primer – Week 7 – vs. Baltimore ravens

(Author’s note: I never capitalize “ravens” unless it appears at the beginning of a sentence. Get over it, ravens fans.) The dark cloud that has hung over the Steel city, and the entirety of Steeler Nation, since Dec. 30, 2012 has been lifted. In case you didn’t know, that was the last time the Steelers …

Steelers Primer – Week 6 – At New York Jets

Good news, Steelers Nation: The Steelers didn’t lose last week. The bad news: The Steelers are 2.5 games back of the rest of the AFC North, and are 2.5 games worse their next opponent, the New York Jets. The Jets will be on a short week, but will be playing at home against a team …

Rapid Reaction – Steelers 0-for-2013

It’s been less than two hours since the Steelers dropped a tough game to the Minnesota Vikings in London, and it will be at least two more weeks before they can try to get their first win in 2013. It’s gotten so bad in the ‘Burgh that I can’t even find the joy in the …

Steelers Primer – Week 4 – at Minnesota Vikings (by way of London)

The misery continues. Unfortunately, only three weeks into the season, we can almost say with a fair amount of certainty that the Steelers will not be in the playoffs and will not be making a run for their seventh Super Bowl.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Ben Roethlisberger Does His Job as a Leader by Calling Out Le’Veon Bell

Rookie running back Le’Veon Bell has recovered from a foot injury and could start for the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Ben Roethlisberger isn’t exactly breaking out the party hats. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Roethlisberger said on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh that “You can’t get a read on him.” Roethlisberger intimated …

Steelers Primer – Week 3 – vs. Chicago Bears

If you go back to last year, and count this year’s preseason, the Pittsburgh Steelers have now won two of their last 13 games after Monday night’s pitiable performance against the Cincinnati Bengals. The offense showed a few signs of life late in the first half and late in the game, but too many mistakes …

Jonathan Dwyer Most Disappointing Of Final Cuts By The Steelers

When the Pittsburgh Steelers selected Jonathan Dwyer in the sixth round of the 2010 draft, I thought he would end up being a steal. Through his first two seasons with the team however, Dwyer hadn’t shown much other than short flashes while running for 151 total yards. That, coupled with constant reports of Dwyer showing …

Can Felix Jones Even Make the Pittsburgh Steelers Roster?

Remember when the Pittsburgh Steelers could get useful Cowboys castoffs? Don’t expect running back Felix Jones to make Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert look like geniuses the way Flozell Adams did in 2010. The Steelers traded outside linebacker Adrian Robinson to the Philadelphia Eagles for Jones on Friday, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. This isn’t …

Pittsburgh Steelers: 2013 Free Agents Could Provide a Boost

The Pittsburgh Steelers unveiled a shiny new running back in their 2013 preseason opener against the New York Giants. Maybe at some point Le’Veon Bell will play, too. LaRod Stephens-Howling, signed as a free agent from the Arizona Cardinals, led the Steelers with 40 rushing yards on seven carries in last week’s 18-13 loss to …
