Ryan Clark, Ike Taylor outlast bad officiating in Steelers win

As a fan, I’ve been somewhat tolerant of the NFL Replacement Officials this season. After all, these are mainly college officials from smaller schools thrust into the limelight under a ton of pressure. Every missed call can turn the outcome of game upside down potentially. Having said that, things have gotten worse rather than better …

Steelers finish strong in home opener to down Jets, 27-10

This was a huge game for the Steelers, and not just because it was the home opener. Going down 0-2 on the season was just not something that Lamarr Woodley or anyone else on the team was willing to concede. It was imperative to start out strong in this game, get the home crowd into …

Blitzburgh It Isn’t; This Defense Has Issues

At what point do we start to finally question the seemingly ‘unquestionable?’ For whatever reason, Dick LeBeau has always gotten a free pass from most Steelers’ fans and I think a lot of it has to do with his legendary status and great track record. Unfortunately, the history doesn’t mean anything because this is about …

Steelers defense has no answer for Peyton Manning in 2nd half; losing opener 31-19

If you talked to virtually anybody outside of Pittsburgh, and even many Steeler fans, this one was going to be an easy win for the Broncos. Peyton Manning was back, the Steelers would be without James Harrison and Ryan Clark, insert any other reason you wish. While the Steelers did manage to keep it close …

Steelers’ Three Keys to Victory in Denver

I am so ready to be done talking about last year’s AFC Wild-Card loss to Denver that I’m considering banning any words that begin with the letter ‘D’ in my house. I’m tired of hearing about it and you’re tired of hearing about so imagine how guys like Ike Taylor, LaMarr Woodley and Troy Polamalu …

With Clark Out Let’s Hope It Isn’t Deja ‘vu All Over Again

There isn’t a player today in the National Football League or in the past that didn’t have his detractors. Whether those fans find criticism in a particular players’ style, ability, or decision to even keep playing or not the fact is all players receive criticism. Even a guy like Barry Sanders had detractors. Pittsburgh Steelers’ …

Steelers defense faces tough challenge in Denver

The Pittsburgh Steelers need only look back to this past January as a reminder of what can happen when you don’t take care of business when you have the chance. Now it’s a new season, a new QB in Denver and a Steelers defense that has some new faces but the task remains the same, …

Battle of the Cornerbacks: Steelers secondary has bright future

Keenan Lewis looks to nail down the starting LCB job for the Steelers

The Steelers defense last year was ranked #1 overall in the league, and #1 in pass defense. Against the pass they allowed a league low 171 yds per game. Those numbers were a huge improvement from 2010 when they allowed 214 yds per game and finished 12th in pass defense. Even if they didn’t make it …

On the Steelers; Brown-Taylor fight nothing new so why the big deal?

If you have siblings, then you get it. If you have ever spent a year or more in a college dormitory then you get it. If you have worked in the same office with the same people day after day, then you get it too. What you are ‘getting’ is that these environments and situations …

2012 Pittsburgh Steelers training camp roster throwdowns: cornerbacks

It’s the position that can make a good defense a great one and the position that can make a good defense look like Swiss cheese. The Pittsburgh Steelers head into 2012 with questions at cornerback and veteran Ike Taylor is a part of those questions in my opinion. As we move from back to front, …
