We should be used to this by now, but I don’t know that we in the Steeler Nation ever will; speaking of the phantom penalties that have been so plentiful over the years. On Sunday night against the Giants though, there were several more to add to the list but the flag against safety Ryan …

Steelers defense vs Bengals, concentrate on the pass or rush?

Normally this would be a no brainer question, the Steelers under Dick Lebeau have always taken the mentality that you stop the run first and make the team one dimensional. This allows you make them more predictable and in theory easier to defend. This year the Steelers defense is ranked 4th overall, allowing 295 yds …

Taylor and Green is a Match-Up to Watch

The Pittsburgh Steelers have many issues right now when it comes to playing defense. They are struggling to get pressure on the quarterback which has led to problems creating turnovers. There are injury issues with guys like Troy Polamalu and potentially LaMarr Woodley and/or James Harrison. The one area the Steelers probably never imagined they’d …

Onward Steelers; Like It or Not, Time for Back-Ups to Step Up

Head Coach Mike Tomlin came down from on high for his weekly press conference and announced what sounded more like a list of soldiers in the infirmary rather than a list of injured football players. Rashard Mendenhall, Isaac Redman, Maurkice Pouncey were called ‘questionable.’ Troy Polamalu, Marcus Gilbert and Chris Carter are each ‘out’ for …

Mike Tomlin wasted little time ruling out Troy Polamalu for the Thursday night game in Tennessee. After coming up lame in the first half of the Eagles matchup at Heinz Field on Sunday, Polamalu hobbled off the field, got his calf iced down and went to the locker room. Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review …

The Steelers get a big win on Sunday afternoon at Heinz Field as they defeated the their intrastate rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles, 16-14. That’s the good news! They did what they had to do, finding a way to win and get to 2-2 on the year. Now for the bad news; those all too familiar …

Steelers historically do well at home against NFC teams

Steelers vs Eagles

Perhaps playing the Philadelphia Eagles will be just what the doctor ordered for the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday at Heinz Field. I’m certainly not suggesting that playing the Eagles is going to be a cakewalk, not by a long stretch. However, for a team at 1-2; looking to right the ship that has so far …

Patience will be key with injured Steelers returning to lineup

Mike Tomlin had his weekly press conference on Tuesday, and among the hot topics was the status of injured players James Harrison, Troy Polamalu, and Rashard Mendenhall. According to Tomlin each practiced on Monday and the team will see how the players do throughout the week before making a final decision on their playing status. …

Don’t Expect Much in the Way of Changes from Steelers’ D.

I feel like I’ve been in some form of twilight zone over the past week because I swear I’ve had the same conversation over and over. Perhaps the scariest part is that it wasn’t any twilight zone, it was reality and for every conversation I’ve had about the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense it always ends the …

The 2012 NFL season will forever be known as the year of the replacement officials. It doesn’t matter how many games the Steelers win or anybody else; whoever wins the Super Bowl will have an asterisk by their title in the minds of the fans. Now if the Steelers were to win it we certainly …
