Can James Washington help the Steelers right away?

When the Steelers traded Martavis Bryant to the Raiders on Day 1 of the 2018 NFL draft, their priorities in the draft suddenly changed. Yes, they still needed help on defense, which they addressed by stockpiling safeties. But with Bryant gone, wide receiver rocketed to the top of their list of needs, which is why …

Steelers: Top 10 candidates to replace Martavis Bryant in draft

Virginia Tech safety Terrell Edmunds could turn out to be a fine draft pick for the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, his selection in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft has been overshadowed both by the fact that Ryan Shazier announced the pick and what the Steelers did earlier on Thursday night. They traded Martavis Bryant …

Steelers 2018 7-round mock draft: Pittsburgh makes stunning Day 1 trade

There’s always a lot of wheeling and dealing that happens at the NFL draft, but the Steelers aren’t usually a part of it. They might make some trades in the later rounds, but they’ve only traded up in the first round twice this century. They moved from 27 to 16 in 2003 to get Troy …

Steelers’ playoff loss brings anger, not heartbreak

Steelers fans have seen some heartbreaking playoff defeats. Sunday’s 45-42 AFC divisional playoff loss to the Jaguars at Heinz Field wasn’t one of them. Hearts weren’t broken, but rather TV screens, drinking glasses, maybe a cell phone or two. Any object that could have been kicked, punched or thrown by angry Steelers fans was in …

Bengals find another way to lose to Steelers

The Steelers did it again. And so did the Bengals. The Steelers defeated the Bengals 23-20 Monday night on Chris Boswell‘s third walkoff field goal in the last four weeks. They deserve credit for overcoming not only a 17-point deficit but also the mental burden of wondering if teammate Ryan Shazier would ever walk again. …

Steelers take care of business in comeback win over Colts

No. Just no. Just to make the search engines happy, let’s report that the Steelers defeated the Colts 20-17 Sunday on Chris Boswell‘s walk-off field goal. But they trailed 17-3 early in the third quarter. This had the feel of one of “those” losses. No. Just no. If the Steelers had lost at Indianapolis Sunday, it …

Steelers would be .500 team without T.J. Watt and JuJu Smith-Schuster

With the Steelers’ bye week falling so conveniently at the midpoint of their season, it would be a good time to hand out midseason awards for 2017. Instead, let’s take a look at one category where we’d have an interesting debate: Rookie of the Year. It’s hard to decide between T.J. Watt and JuJu Smith-Schuster. …

Steelers turn to JuJu Smith-Schuster in win over Lions

If you’re a Steelers fan and an NFL draft junkie, the moment JuJu Smith-Schuster was drafted doesn’t quite measure up to the moment Ben Roethlisberger was drafted. When Roethlisberger in that pinstripe suit spoke to his new coach on the phone, those of us watching on TV saw a turning point in Steelers history even if …

Is Ben Roethlisberger washed up?

Jaws dropped when Ben Roethlisberger said after the AFC championship game that he’s contemplating retirement. After the Steelers’ 30-9 loss to the Jaguars on Sunday, their worst home loss in 11 years, Roethlisberger said something that suggests he won’t just be thinking about it after this season. In the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, he was quoted as saying: …

Steelers sharpen their focus, rout Ravens

Let’s get this straight. The Steelers lose to a Bears team that has lost its three other games by an average of 16 points, then they go and win at Baltimore for the first time since 2012. When we print out those Steelers schedules in April, we pretty much pencil in  an “L” next to “at Baltimore” …
