6 Players to Watch in Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2013 Preseason Opener

Several Pittsburgh Steelers will be fighting for jobs tonight as the Steelers open their 2013 preseason against the New York Giants at Heinz Field. Staying healthy matters more than winning in preseason games. The Steelers coaches will focus less on the scoreboard and more on individual performances as they try to sort out who belongs …

The Steelers Should At Least Consider Former Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw

At the moment, the Steelers currently do not have a running back under contract on the roster. Rashard Mendenhall is an unrestricted free agent, Chris Rainey was waived, Baron Batch is an exclusive rights free agent and Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman are restricted free agents. Although there has been some speculation that Redman could …

2012 Grades, Position by Position, Running Backs

If the quarterbacks had a bipolar year, the running backs were busy redefining the term “inconsistent.” The Steelers finished the year 20th in rushing attempts (412), and 26th in rushing yards (1537). That hardly qualifies as “Steelers football.” You know, the game we are all familiar with, when the Steelers run the ball down the opponent’s throats?

The Release of Chris Rainey Does Not Really Change Anything For The Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers waived RB Chris Rainey, according to this ESPN.com report, after he was charged with simple battery on January 10, 2013. The Steelers drafted Rainey in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft because of his speed and versatility to be a running back, wide receiver and kick returner. Although Rainey seemed …

Jonathan Dwyer’s Career Coming Full Circle This Season

When the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Jonathan Dwyer in the 6th round of the 2010 NFL Draft, I thought he could end up being one of the steals of that draft. Coming out of Georgia Tech, Dwyer looked like a first round talent until he had a less than stellar Scouting Combine and questions popped up …

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 …

Three’s a Crowd in Steelers’ Backfield

There are times when I miss the hi-jinx of Jack, Chrissy and Janet on the popular ’70′s and ’80′s show ‘Three’s Company’ simply because it was great comedy built around a simple premise and it didn’t take itself too seriously at all. For you youngsters, I highly suggest you check out that show on Netflix …

Steelers progress this season shouldn’t be overlooked even after rough night at the office

The Monday Night Football contest between the Chiefs and Steelers proved once again that any team can beat, or come close to, beating any other team no matter what the records indicate. For the Steelers, things maybe didn’t go quite as planned but a win is a win and while there is concern for injured …

So is it the “hot hand” or is it Rashard Mendenhall for the Steelers?

Jonathan Dwyer has 2 100+ yd games this season

As the season moves along for the Steelers we might be finding ourselves in the middle of a running back controversy in Pittsburgh. Now, by controversy I don’t mean something that necessarily divides the team like a quarterback controversy can but rather who Mike Tomlin will start vs who everybody else (including the players and …

Steelers can rest some players; but don’t sleep on the Chiefs

The first legitimate trap game of the Steelers season is here and it comes in the form of the Kansas City Chiefs traveling to Heinz Field for a good ole fashioned AFC showdown. These teams have been playing against each other since 1970; with the Steelers holding the overall series lead 18-10. Since the 2K …
