Six takeaways from Steelers’ 24-16 win over Bengals

The Steelers defeated the Bengals 24-16 Sunday on a relatively peaceful, if rainy, afternoon at Heinz Field. With Vontaze Burfict far outside Pittsburgh’s city limits, a shouting match between Antonio Brown and Karlos Dansby was about as heated as Sunday’s game would get. It was so civil, in fact, that one of the teams could have …

Steelers rout Redskins, provide reason to believe Super Bowl hype

There are so many interesting ways to slice and dice the Steelers’ season-opening 38-16 win over the Redskins Monday night in Washington. It was the Steelers’ sixth straight win over the Redskins. The last time the Redskins beat the Steelers was 1991, the year of their last championship. It was the first time the Steelers …

Predictions (and quirky facts) for each 2016 Steelers game

It’s been almost eight months since Fitzgerald Toussaint’s fumble cost the Steelers a chance to go to New England for the AFC championship game. After his team came within three minutes of beating the eventual Super Bowl champs without Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell, DeAngelo Williams and full use of Ben Roethlisberger’s right arm, Mike Tomlin was …

Steelers’ odds for each playoff seed in 2016

With no more preseason games standing between them and the real games, the Steelers can put behind them a summer of buzzkill developments that has somewhat quieted the Super Bowl buzz that surrounded them. First Martavis Bryant was suspended for the year. Then Ladarius Green, the Steelers’ biggest free-agent signing, was nothing more than a model for …

Steelers need strong rookie seasons from Sean Davis, Javon Hargrave

The Steelers confirmed in Friday night’s 27-14 preseason win at New Orleans that their offense is primed for the 2016 season. The defense still could use a little work, but the good news is that the Steelers could be getting their biggest rookie contribution on that side of the ball in 15 years. Third-round pick Javon Hargrave …

Five Steelers facing make-or-break seasons

Several Steelers are fighting for roster spots with three preseason games remaining. These five players aren’t necessarily in danger of being cut, and at least one of them is virtually assured of being on the team beyond 2016. But these players, who all have been on the team for at least two years, are at a …

Pittsburgh Steelers 2016 draft report card

The 2016 NFL draft provided the Pittsburgh Steelers an opportunity to add missing pieces to a team that was two wins away from Super Bowl 50. For the second straight year, the Steelers drafted according to specific needs rather than the “best player available” policy. How did they do? These are their grades for each pick followed by a …

Pittsburgh Steelers 2016 seven-round mock draft

The cornerback watch is on in Pittsburgh. The 2016 NFL draft begins Thursday, and the Steelers could draft a cornerback in the first round for the first time since they took Chad Scott in 1997. Cornerback isn’t the Steelers’ only need, however. There are other positions that could use an upgrade, depth or a little …

Martavis Bryant suspension tames Steelers’ lofty 2016 expectations

Thank you, Martavis Bryant. Not for getting suspended for a year, but rather for giving Steelers fans six months to get used to the possibility that the Steelers might not be as great as everyone thinks they’ll be. Bryant chose not to appeal his impending one-year suspension, and it became official on Monday, according to Pro Football …

Steelers can’t afford any more setbacks in Roethlisberger Era

Have all Steelers fans breathed their sigh of relief that Tom Brady won’t be in the Super Bowl? Good. Let’s limit our reaction to just that, a sigh of relief. There’s no reason to celebrate. We saw how silly the Bengals looked tweeting away after the Broncos beat the Steelers 23-16 in the AFC divisional playoffs last …
