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 Draft Report Card: Grades for the Mike Tomlin Era

How can we publish a Steelers draft report card before the 2018 NFL draft has even happened? We’re not grading the upcoming draft. We’re grading the 11 Steelers drafts since Mike Tomlin was hired as head coach in 2007, and we’ll finish by spinning forward a little bit to the 2018 draft. As soon as …

2018 Steelers mock schedule

The NFL has turned its annual schedule release into yet another offseason event that steals headlines from sports that are actually playing regular-season and playoff games. According to Pro Football Talk, the 2018 NFL schedule is expected to be released sometime this week. Even if it’s not released this week, it almost surely will be before …

Steelers shouldn’t fire Mike Tomlin, at least not this year

It’s one thing for basement bloggers to call for the firing of Mike Tomlin, but it’s quite another when accomplished businessmen who own a piece of the Steelers say that. According to Pro Football Talk, some of the Steelers’ minority owners plan to petition owner Art Rooney II to give Tomlin the pink slip in the …

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 …

Steelers never have easy time beating Jaguars

To get to Super Bowl LII, the Steelers most likely will have to beat Tom Brady at Gillette Stadium, something they’ve never done. Before that, however, the Steelers will have to do something else they’ve never done: beat Blake Bortles in Pittsburgh. OK, so it wasn’t really Bortles who beat the Steelers in their 30-9 …

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’ win over Packers is a familiar refrain

Here we go again. That sentence was thrown around verbally, mentally and musically Sunday night during the Steelers’ more-thrilling-than-it-had-to-be 31-28 win over the Packers at Heinz Field. The Packers took a 14-6 lead in the first quarter, and regained the lead in the third quarter when Brett Hundley threw a 55-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams …

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 again fail to bear down against weak opponent

Another face plant against a cellar-dwelling opponent. Another collective face palm across Steelers Nation. The Steelers did it again. They lost to yet another team they should have had no problem beating, upholding a dubious tradition that’s been an unfortunate undercurrent of Mike Tomlin’s tenure as head coach. With sole possession of first place in …
