Steelers Mid-Season Analysis (Or, Holy Crap, We Still Have Eight More Games of This?!)

Gen. Colin Powell likes to say that things are usually not as bad as they seem, and that things always look better in the morning. It was with this thought in mind that I didn’t write last night when my frustration was at a level I had seldom known concerning our beloved Pittsburgh Steelers. Respectfully, General, …

New England Patriots Conquer Pittsburgh Steelers, End Rivalry

It’s over. The Pittsburgh Steelers season? Well, we knew that was over. We knew that before Sunday’s pitiful 55-31 loss to the New England Patriots. There will be plenty of time to write a eulogy for the 2013 Steelers. For now, it’s time to wave the white Terrible Towel and surrender to the Patriots. They …

Pittsburgh Steelers: Ranking Shaun Suisham’s Five Walk-Off Field Goals

With last year’s 34-31 loss at Oakland seared into their memory, the Pittsburgh Steelers visit the Raiders again Sunday. Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 43-yard field goal as time ran out to give the Raiders the win in Week 3 last season. The 6’1”, 258-pound Janikowski has a leg like a sequoia and has kicked field …

Steelers Primer – Week 8 – At Oakland Raiders

Two wins in a row, and win against a hated foe. That’s better. Moreover, the running game actually looked good against the ravens. I’m not saying the Steelers’s problems are solved and they are on the way to a seventh Super Bowl, but at least it looks like they are not on their way to …

Pittsburgh Steelers: Raiders Are a Fitting Halloween Opponent

The Pittsburgh Steelers sure are getting into the spirit of Halloween. First they hosted the Baltimore Ravens, a team named for a foreboding bird in American literature. The Steelers tricked the Ravens with the wildcat, and treated their fans to a win at Heinz Field. On Sunday, the Steelers visit the Oakland Raiders. What better …

Pittsburgh Steelers Defeat Baltimore Ravens, But Still Have Some Work to Do on Defense

Did anyone else expect to see Ben Roethlisberger go all Jim Valvano and run across the Heinz Field turf desperately looking for Charlie Batch after Sunday’s game? Aren’t Batch and Roethlisberger supposed to engage in a minute-long bro hug whenever Shaun Suisham kicks a last-second field goal in a Pittsburgh Steelers’ win over the Baltimore …

Thumbs-Up, Thumbs-Down on Pittsburgh Steelers Moves During the Bye Week

The Pittsburgh Steelers didn’t play a game last week, but that doesn’t mean nothing happened. Multiple lineup changes were made during the bye week in an effort to turn the Steelers’ 2013 season around. The Steelers (0-4) seek their first win of the season Sunday when they play the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. …

Pittsburgh Steelers: Mike Tomlin’s Drafts Aren’t as Bad as They Seem

Amid the rubble of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 0-4 start, there’s plenty of blame to go around. Mike Tomlin’s drafts have been among the targets of that finger-pointing. That’s certainly part of the problem. We’re fresh off ripping the Steelers 2012 draft class. While there’s still time for some of those 2012 selections to blossom, the …

Pittsburgh Steelers’ 0-4 Record Is No Laughing Matter

Good one, Steelers. You really had us going for a while, there. Starting the 2013 season 0-4? C’mon. That hasn’t happened since 1968. This is one hell of a practical joke you’re pulling on us. Losing to the 0-3 Minnesota Vikings 34-27 in London? A team that allowed at least 31 points in all three …

Steelers Primer – Week 4 – at Minnesota Vikings (by way of London)

The misery continues. Unfortunately, only three weeks into the season, we can almost say with a fair amount of certainty that the Steelers will not be in the playoffs and will not be making a run for their seventh Super Bowl.
