Clark Continues to be His Own Worst Enemy With Tackling Style

If you held a straw poll of Pittsburgh Steelers’ MVP candidates through nine games this season, there’s a good chance you’d see votes for Ben Roethlisberger, Heath Miller and Ryan Clark. In the absence of Troy Polamalu, Clark has taken over as the leader of the secondary and has played with his usual reckless abandon …

Steelers escape New York despite odds stacked against them

They did the right thing in flying in for a road game on the day of the game. It was their only option since clearly Commissioner Roger Goodell had no intention of postponing this game. Even when the NBA and the New York City Marathon were being cancelled or postponed, the National Football League would …

SteelDad Breaks Down the Inaccurate Reception

First and foremost, I am Pittsburgh Steelers’ fan. That also makes me a football fan. I have played and watched and coached a lot of football in my many years on this rock so while that doesn’t necessarily make me an expert, I do feel a certain amount of expertise. I feel, therefore, it’s my …

Harrison Will Forever Be the Villain

Chances are if you’re reading this, then you’re a Pittsburgh Steelers’ fan. Even if you’re not, you can’t deny the fact that Steelers’ linebacker James Harrison is the poster child for Commissioner Roger Goodell’s assault on the game in the name of ‘player safety.’ Harrison, who has yet to see a down of action so …

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 …

SteelDad’s Rants and Slants Version 7.0

Kicking Off ‘Very surprised’ is the best way I can say it after learning of the firing of Steelers Special Teams Coach Al Everest. I suppose there is much more to the story than we may ever know but the guy took a unit that was pretty awful and turned it into one that didn’t …

Steelers football, coming to an Olympics near you?

This went somewhat un-noticed during all the media hype of the Olympics going on currently, and of course with the NFL preseason underway but NFL Commissioner Goodell told PFT’s Mike Florio that he wants the NFL to be an olympic sport. If you read through the excerpt below you can tell that he is quite adamant about …

SteelDad’s Rants and Slants; Version 5.0

Kicking Off I feel like ESPN but what the hell? The New York Jets are fighting more often than the Kardashians these days. A day after a reported 15-20 man royal rumble broke out, another one today happened that resulted in the team doing windsprints. Amazingly, this had nothing to do with Tim Tebow, but …

SteelDad’ Rants and Slants Version 4

Kicking Off First off, congratulations to Steelers’ Wideout Antonio Brown who has reportedly signed a contract extension with the team. Brown becomes one of the rare players in Steelers’ history to be extended with more than a year left on his current deal. At 5 years, $42 million, I’d say Brown is in line to …

SteelDad’s Rants and Slants Version 3

Kicking Off There are so many ways I could go with this story about the Cowboys’ Dez Bryant attacking his mother, but I’ll choose this one; NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has been anything but consistent when handing out fines and suspensions, but he needs to get this one right or risk losing the ounce of …
