Steelers should fire Keith Butler, not Mike Tomlin, after missing playoffs

The Steelers signed kicker Matt McCrane off the street. He makes all three of his field-goal attempts, including the game-winning 35-yarder with 1:56 left, and the Steelers beat the Bengals 16-13 Sunday at Heinz Field. It’s quite a story, but there was no time to revel in this victory. As soon as the clock struck …

Steelers 28, Bengals 21: Antonio Brown provides finishing touch

It was getting to be time to ban all WiFi references involving Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown. That whole theme had kind of been beaten to the ground. CBS even did a graphic on it, for crying out loud. But then with 10 seconds left in the Steelers’ game at Cincinnati on Sunday, Roethlisberger’s game-winning 31-yard …

Steelers 41, Falcons 17: T.J. Watt must keep leading defense

The Steelers have taken a defensive player in the first round of the draft six years in a row and counting. Before 2013, their longest string of first-round defensive draft picks had been two years. That draft strategy hadn’t exactly paid off through the first four weeks of the 2018 season. Part of the problem …

Steelers’ first win of 2018 is collection of breakout games

The Steelers no longer are among the huddled masses of the NFL’s winless teams after their 30-27 win at Tampa Bay Monday night. They stay out of the AFC North basement, they have a better record than the Patriots and we will not have to re-live the horror of 2013’s 0-4 start. That’s the good …

Tie looks better on Browns than it does on Steelers

Perhaps you’ve heard a million or so times that the Steelers have had only three head coaches since 1969. Well now, they’ve had three ties during that same time period after playing to a 21-21 stalemate with the Browns in Sunday’s 2018 season opener at Cleveland. Chuck Noll and Bill Cowher both have one tie …

Predicting each game of the Steelers’ 2018 season

Let the real games begin. Not that there isn’t value in NFL preseason games. After all, if you watched the Steelers’ 39-24 win over the Panthers in Thursday’s preseason finale, you saw Shawn Hochuli, son of retired referee Ed Hochuli, officiating the game. You can rest assured knowing that even though Ed Hochuli’s theatrics are a …

Steelers’ young defensive players must reach their potential in 2018

All eyes will be on Bud Dupree this season. The Steelers exercised their fifth-year option on the outside linebacker, banking on a breakout season in 2018 after 14.5 combined sacks in his first three years. There are tons of “Breakout Candidates” articles flying around the blogosphere for each team this time of year. We could …

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 Draft Report Card: Grades for the Mike Tomlin Era

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 …

10 players on the Steelers’ radar at the NFL scouting combine

The NFL scouting combine is always a special time of year for Steelers fans. It’s when we can see Steelers scout Mark Gorscak on the NFL Network instructing prospects who are about to run the 40-yard dash. The Steelers’ 2018 offseason came a lot earlier than expected, but the sight of Gorscak is always a nice …
