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.

Pittsburgh Steelers: 4 Wide Receiver Observations from 2013 Preseason Opener

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ preseason opener Saturday night didn’t mean that much more than the last game the Steelers played at Heinz Field. More than seven months after salvaging a little pride with a 24-10 win over the Cleveland Browns to close out the 2012 season, the Steelers lost to the New York Giants 18-13. More …

The Pittsburgh Steelers Need Jerricho Cotchery To Show Up In 2013

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed Jerricho Cotchery before the 2011 season to add another veteran presence to the receiving core. I thought the Steelers made a good decision to sign Cotchery and thought that he would end up helping the team at some point. Cotchery then missed some time during the season due to injury and …

Pittsburgh Steelers Made Short-Sighted Decision Keeping Emmanuel Sanders

Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert know that’s Emmanuel Sanders who wears No. 88 and not Lynn Swann, right? That uniform number made Sanders look like Hines Ward in his rookie season, but that’s only because that second “8” looked like a “6” when Sanders caught passes over the middle in 2010.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Patriots Would Be Doing Them a Favor by Taking Emmanuel Sanders

Maybe Bill Belichick has a conscience after all. Perhaps he feels guilty about stealing the Steelers’ signals during the 2004 AFC Championship Game at Heinz Field. How else can you explain the Patriots’ willingness to send the Steelers a third-round draft pick for Emmanuel Sanders? Unless the devious Patriots laced Sanders’ drinking water with Randy …

Losing Emmanuel Sanders Doesn’t Guarantee A First Round Receiver For The Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers have already lost Mike Wallace to the Miami Dolphins this offseason and now it is more than likely they will lose Emmanuel Sanders. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the New England Patriots signed Sanders to an offer sheet of one year and 2.5 million dollars. The Steelers have the opportunity to match …

Pittsburgh Steelers: A Look at the Five Fastest Wide Receivers in the 2013 NFL Draft

It’s been established in this space that if Tennessee wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson is available, the Pittsburgh Steelers should select him with the No. 17 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. But what if Patterson is gone by the time the Steelers pick? What if they pick an outside linebacker or a running back instead? …

Pittsburgh Steelers: Cordarrelle Patterson is Worth Taking with the No. 17 Pick in the 2013 NFL Draft

If the Pittsburgh Steelers don’t take a wide receiver in the 2013 NFL Draft, Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert should demoted to hot dog vendors at Heinz Field. Mike Wallace is now a Dolphin swimming in money, and the Steelers are left with Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders as their only remaining receivers who have …

2012 Grades, Position by Position, Receivers and Tight Ends

So far, we have not seen very good grades out of the Steelers’ offense. The quarterbacks got average marks, while the running backs came in below average. Wide receiver is the trickiest position to evaluate of the skill positions. There are so many factors that go into a solid passing game that it is hard …

Antonio Brown Deserves His Share of the Blame for Pittsburgh Steelers’ Disappointing 2012 Season

There will be plenty of time to look ahead at the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2013 season. This Steelers offseason is going to be about a month longer than we’re used to, and even a week longer than last year, when the Steelers at least got into the playoffs before losing in the first round. If we …
