Pittsburgh Steelers 2012 Draft is Hurting Them in 2013

The Pittsburgh Steelers have seen enough of Mike Adams for now. That doesn’t say much for their player evaluation leading up to the 2012 NFL draft. Amid the desperation caused by their 0-4 start, the Steelers took the desperate measure of trading a conditional draft pick to the Arizona Cardinals for offensive tackle Levi Brown, …

So is it the “hot hand” or is it Rashard Mendenhall for the Steelers?

Jonathan Dwyer has 2 100+ yd games this season

As the season moves along for the Steelers we might be finding ourselves in the middle of a running back controversy in Pittsburgh. Now, by controversy I don’t mean something that necessarily divides the team like a quarterback controversy can but rather who Mike Tomlin will start vs who everybody else (including the players and …

Steelers can rest some players; but don’t sleep on the Chiefs

The first legitimate trap game of the Steelers season is here and it comes in the form of the Kansas City Chiefs traveling to Heinz Field for a good ole fashioned AFC showdown. These teams have been playing against each other since 1970; with the Steelers holding the overall series lead 18-10. Since the 2K …

Steelers’ Injuries Could Be a Blessing

Every team has to deal with injuries and they all have them to varying degrees and at different or even similar positions.You can’t help but notice that the Pittsburgh Steelers have been plagued by the injury bug really since training camp when rookie¬†David DeCastro went down in Buffalo.

Mike Wallace and Heath Miller celebrate a Steelers touchdown

We’ve been saying all week that this was the biggest game of the year; a litmus test for a team trying to find itself and get back on track in the AFC North. With the Ravens winning today against the Browns, and the Bengals losing, Pittsburgh had to keep pace in the division and find …

Onward Steelers; No Excuses for the Offense This Week

If you go by what Pittsburgh Steelers’ owner Art Rooney, Jr said in his post-2011 season comments, the need for a new offensive coordinator was to help Ben Roethlisberger ‘tweak’ his game, get better in the red zone and return the team to a more solid running attack. Exit Bruce Arians and enter Todd Haley. …

Steelers’ Special Teams Anything but Special

Is it really that hard? Is it really so difficult not to hold a guy or hit a guy from behind? Isn’t the old saying “if you see his name don’t hit him?” Being a special teams’ player is not easy because quite often it really does take a rare breed to do it. Right …

Steelers Get A Much-Needed Win, But Much To Work On

I’m not sure who received game balls last night in the visitor’s locker room at Paul Brown Stadium, but I certainly hope guys like Willie Colon and Heath Miller received one. I would also make sure coaches Todd Haley and Offensive Line Coach Sean Kugler got one as well. It was obvious they knew Mike …

Onward Steelers; It’s Time to Accept This is a Passing Offense

If you haven’t come to the realization that the Pittsburgh Steelers are a pass-first team then perhaps you’ve been watching re-runs of the Seventies’ Steelers. Art Rooney II can say Ben Roethlisberger needs to ‘tweak his game’ all he wants to but I didn’t see anything that needed tweaking yesterday in the 34-31 loss to …

Onward Steelers; Rainey’s Utilization Will Increase With Experience

Chris Rainey made his NFL debut Sunday night and left much to be desired but I certainly don’t blame him or anyone else for that matter. The Steelers gave him the ball on a traditional running play and another where misdirection was the key and resulted in a seven yard gain. His only reception was …
