Steelers 20, Jaguars 16: Offense earns its ‘comeback’ badge

It’s one thing for the Steelers to shove a 50-Burger down the Panthers’ throats. It’s one thing for Ben Roethlisberger to earn a perfect passer rating. It’s one thing to score 177 points during a five-game stretch, a franchise record the Steelers had achieved heading into Sunday’s game in Jacksonville, according to the Elias Sports …

Steelers 33, Browns 18: James Conner putting up historic numbers

After every Steelers game this season, the name of a certain Steelers running back has been mentioned in this space in the context of how the Steelers are getting along without him. The name of this jet-skiing rapper usually comes as an aside late in the column. That ends this week, because this guy has become …

Steelers 28, Bengals 21: Antonio Brown provides finishing touch

It was getting to be time to ban all WiFi references involving Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown. That whole theme had kind of been beaten to the ground. CBS even did a graphic on it, for crying out loud. But then with 10 seconds left in the Steelers’ game at Cincinnati on Sunday, Roethlisberger’s game-winning 31-yard …

Steelers 41, Falcons 17: T.J. Watt must keep leading defense

The Steelers have taken a defensive player in the first round of the draft six years in a row and counting. Before 2013, their longest string of first-round defensive draft picks had been two years. That draft strategy hadn’t exactly paid off through the first four weeks of the 2018 season. Part of the problem …

Ravens 26, Steelers 14: Defense fails early, Roethlisberger falters late

How bad is the Steelers’ defense? It’s reached the point where all it takes to beat the Steelers is an adequate starting quarterback. The Steelers fell to Joe Flacco and the Ravens 26-14 Sunday night at Heinz Field, falling to 1-2-1. Flacco is the last career starter that the Steelers defeated, and even then they gave …

Steelers’ first win of 2018 is collection of breakout games

The Steelers no longer are among the huddled masses of the NFL’s winless teams after their 30-27 win at Tampa Bay Monday night. They stay out of the AFC North basement, they have a better record than the Patriots and we will not have to re-live the horror of 2013’s 0-4 start. That’s the good …

Steelers can’t overcome another slow start at home, fall to Chiefs

When did the Steelers start thinking that they could just roll out of bed and win games at home? The Steelers lost their second straight game at Heinz Field Sunday going back to last year’s AFC divisional playoff loss to the Jaguars. The Chiefs defeated the Steelers 42-37. In this defeat and in the aforementioned 45-42 …

Predicting each game of the Steelers’ 2018 season

Let the real games begin. Not that there isn’t value in NFL preseason games. After all, if you watched the Steelers’ 39-24 win over the Panthers in Thursday’s preseason finale, you saw Shawn Hochuli, son of retired referee Ed Hochuli, officiating the game. You can rest assured knowing that even though Ed Hochuli’s theatrics are a …

James Washington could give Steelers scary wide receiver depth

A six-pack of Steelers thoughts, some longer than others, to crack open at the tailgate for Saturday’s preseason game against the Titans at Heinz Field: Receivers It doesn’t look like Martavis Bryant will win the Gruden Grinder award anytime soon. The Raiders’ coach traded a third-round pick to the Steelers for Bryant, and according to the …

If Le’Veon Bell wants $14.5 million per year, Steelers should pay him

The big news in the world this week is that a guy who likes to play around on social media went to a summit meeting in Singapore. No, it wasn’t Le’Veon Bell. Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un have done more negotiating than Bell and the Steelers. It’s been a nuclear spring and summer between the two sides when it …
