Steelers never have easy time beating Jaguars

To get to Super Bowl LII, the Steelers most likely will have to beat Tom Brady at Gillette Stadium, something they’ve never done. Before that, however, the Steelers will have to do something else they’ve never done: beat Blake Bortles in Pittsburgh. OK, so it wasn’t really Bortles who beat the Steelers in their 30-9 …

James Harrison is just having his mid-life crisis

Hopefully any Steelers fans who saw the solar eclipse of 2017 still have those safety glasses handy, because judging from the reaction in Pittsburgh they’ll need them to bear the sight of James Harrison in a Patriots uniform. If Steelers fans think it’s hard for them to see Harrison in those threads, imagine how the …

Steelers can’t catch break in crushing loss to Patriots

One word to describe the Steelers’ 27-24 loss to the Patriots Sunday at Heinz Field? Deflating. A little gallows humor. Let’s get this straight. The 6-foot-6, 256-pound Rob Gronkowski, who shouldn’t have been playing two weeks after trying to decapitate the 5-foot-11, 192-pound TreDavious White, carries the Patriots on their game-winning drive. Meanwhile, Gronkowski’s counterpart, Steelers tight …

Steelers’ thrilling win sets stage for showdown with Patriots

The good news is this wild ride of a season took another thrilling turn Sunday night at Heinz Field. The Steelers overcame an 11-point fourth-quarter deficit and beat the Ravens 39-38 on Chris Boswell‘s 46-yard field goal with 42 seconds left. The victory clinched the Steelers’ third AFC North title in four seasons. The bad …

Bengals find another way to lose to Steelers

The Steelers did it again. And so did the Bengals. The Steelers defeated the Bengals 23-20 Monday night on Chris Boswell‘s third walkoff field goal in the last four weeks. They deserve credit for overcoming not only a 17-point deficit but also the mental burden of wondering if teammate Ryan Shazier would ever walk again. …

Steelers’ win over Packers is a familiar refrain

Here we go again. That sentence was thrown around verbally, mentally and musically Sunday night during the Steelers’ more-thrilling-than-it-had-to-be 31-28 win over the Packers at Heinz Field. The Packers took a 14-6 lead in the first quarter, and regained the lead in the third quarter when Brett Hundley threw a 55-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams …

Steelers rout Titans, provide reminders of LeBeau Era

Who knew that a Dick LeBeau defense would be the first to allow the Steelers to score 30 points in game this season? Not only did the Steelers break the 30-point barrier for the first time, they reached the big four-oh, beating the Titans 40-17 Thursday night at Heinz Field. After scoring 20 points in …

Steelers take care of business in comeback win over Colts

No. Just no. Just to make the search engines happy, let’s report that the Steelers defeated the Colts 20-17 Sunday on Chris Boswell‘s walk-off field goal. But they trailed 17-3 early in the third quarter. This had the feel of one of “those” losses. No. Just no. If the Steelers had lost at Indianapolis Sunday, it …

Steelers would be .500 team without T.J. Watt and JuJu Smith-Schuster

With the Steelers’ bye week falling so conveniently at the midpoint of their season, it would be a good time to hand out midseason awards for 2017. Instead, let’s take a look at one category where we’d have an interesting debate: Rookie of the Year. It’s hard to decide between T.J. Watt and JuJu Smith-Schuster. …

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 …
