Chuck Noll’s Teaching Skills Helped Change Steelers History

Chuck Noll’s death on Friday at the age of 82 was hardly a surprise. He had been in poor health for a number of years. But couldn’t he have had just one more Father’s Day? Noll was more than just a football coach. Unlike many of today’s NFL coaches, he wasn’t working 18-hour days and …

What Were the Pittsburgh Steelers Thinking Drafting Dri Archer?

Dri Archer? Really? The Pittsburgh Steelers punctuated a 51-pick wait Friday night on Day 2 of the 2014 NFL Draft to take this guy? The Steelers used their third-round compensatory pick, No. 97 overall, on Archer. The 5’8″, 173-pounder from Kent State has been listed as both a running back and a wide receiver. Archer …

Pittsburgh Steelers: Will Emmanuel Sanders’ Exit End the Curse of the No. 88?

Now that Emmanuel Sanders is gone, the Pittsburgh Steelers must retire the No. 88. Not because Sanders deserves the honor, but rather because that uniform number is cursed. Those digits seem to weave their way into Steelers misfortune whenever they get together. Isn’t it fitting that Sanders signed with the Denver Broncos, of all teams, …

Pittsburgh Steelers Can Lose to Bengals Sunday and Still Have Chance to Make Playoffs

I blame you, Steelers. It’s your fault my journalistic accuracy has been compromised this week. First, I wrote that a Dolphins win over the Patriots Sunday afternoon would mathematically eliminate the Steelers from playoff contention, regardless of what the Steelers do against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday night.
