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 …

Saints 31, Steelers 28: Steelers aren’t ‘nice’ enough to make the playoffs

The Steelers aren’t likely to find a playoff berth under their tree this Christmas season. They lost 31-28 to the Saints Sunday at New Orleans. The Saints (13-2) clinched home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs with the win. There’s nothing naughty about losing to an elite team like this. But Santa knows when the Steelers …

Chargers 33, Steelers 30: Steelers struggling while other AFC teams are on the rise

Another week, another team that looks like it has a better chance than the Steelers to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. Remember a month or so ago when the Patriots and Chiefs seemed to be the main hurdles between the Steelers and Super Bowl LIII? Those were simpler times. Now the Chargers have stamped themselves …

Broncos 24, Steelers 17: Sloppy Steelers let win slip away

Who needs a first-round bye anyway? It didn’t exactly work out too well for the Steelers in the playoffs last season. The Steelers blew a chance to pull to within a half game of the Chiefs and stay ahead of the Patriots in the jockeying for AFC playoff seeding after falling 24-17 to the Broncos …

Steelers 20, Jaguars 16: Offense earns its ‘comeback’ badge

It’s one thing for the Steelers to shove a 50-Burger down the Panthers’ throats. It’s one thing for Ben Roethlisberger to earn a perfect passer rating. It’s one thing to score 177 points during a five-game stretch, a franchise record the Steelers had achieved heading into Sunday’s game in Jacksonville, according to the Elias Sports …

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 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 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 …

Steelers move a step closer to playoffs, but AFC North title still unlikely

Cincinnati sure is nice this time of year. For the Pittsburgh Steelers, anyway. The Steelers’ 33-20 win over the Bengals Sunday was their 13th in their last 15 games at Cincinnati, including playoffs, and their 21st out of their last 26 going back to 1991. Ben Roethlisberger improved to 11-2 at Paul Brown Stadium. Steelers …

Defense helping Steelers avoid losses to bad teams

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ ability to protect their home turf and defeat the Cleveland Browns 30-9 Sunday is significant in more ways than one. Week 10 of the 2015 NFL season was not an easy one for home teams. Visitors won 10 of the 13 Sunday games. Perhaps the most shocking was the Lions’ 18-16 win over the …
