The NFL is So Ready To Suspend James Harrison

James Harrison was called on for a “random” PED test this morning, as he explained on Facebook [96.1 Kiss]. Also “randomly” selected were Clay Matthews, Julius Peppers, and Mike Neal. Interestingly, each of these players is on the defensive side of the ball, and each one has made their name by tackling quarterbacks. Must be a […]

Heath Miller Retires

COMING OUT OF MY BLOGGING HOLE TO BE SAD NOW. HEATH MILLER IS RETIRING. This was a surprise for everyone, I think. There was a rumor that the Steelers might cut him to save some cap space, but without a clear heir apparent and with his play minimally declining, I thought that was a dumb […]

Let’s Talk About Trick Plays

Okay, so last week the Steelers tried a fake field goal. It didn’t work, and the prevailing opinion seems to be that Mike Tomlin should absolutely lose his job over that. That’s stupid, and you’re stupid for thinking it. On the play in question, Landry Jones snuck on as the holder for a field goal attempt. […]

Steelers Replace Dri Archer with Jacoby Jones

I have football opinions about this one. When the Steelers drafted Dri Archer, I was excited. Here’s the fastest guy at the combine who goes in the third round, ostensibly because he is very small.   I just mean he’s short; you could grate cheese on that. So you have a small, speedy football player, […]

The NFL Sucks And I Hate It

Loyal readers (all six of you!) may have noticed that I haven’t written much about the Steelers so far this season. I’m sure there’s a reason for that, but it’s difficult to pinpoint exactly what it is. Let’s just take a step back and think about professional football for a minute here. Greg Hardy’s return […]

They Also Played Football. STEELERS LOSE

Enough metaphorical ink has been spilled about the Patriots overtly cheating to win football games. That’s the way it’s going to be, and the NFL has shown they are very comfortable with it. I’ll never give the Patriots credit for a legitimate win again, however I can still assign the Steelers blame for a loss. […]

Remember Who the Steelers are Playing Tonight

 Ah, football season is finally upon us. And tonight, the Pittsburgh Steelers will open the 2015 season against the defending Super Bowl Champions*, the New England Patriots. If you haven’t yet, I highly encourage you to read ESPN’s massive feature on the long and storied history of various methods of cheating employed by Bill Belichick. […]

Steelers Acquire Josh Scobee

The Steelers brought in their third kicker of training camp today when they acquired veteran kicker Josh Scobee from Jacksonville. With injuries to Shaun Suisham and Garrett Hartley, a move had to be made. No one seems to know what he was traded for, but the return on a veteran backup kicker (the Jaguars have rookie […]

Steelers Actually Sign Michael Vick

So Bruce Gradkowski messed up his finger and went on injured reserve. With the only other options at quarterback being Landry Jones and what I’m told was once Tajh Boyd, the Steelers reached out to the scrap heap and pulled up what can only be described as the only available option: Michael Vick. I’ll get […]

Steeler Nation, Meet Your New Kicker

The Steelers signed Garrett Hartley after working him out along with Alex Henery and Jay Feeley. That’s pretty much it; he’s a free agent kicker. Let’s just hope he fits in and kicks well, just as Suisham did when he came in to replace Jeff Reed.

Shaun Suisham Out For Season With ACL Injury

(photoshop gold right there)   Looks like the Steelers will be bringing in a new kicker for the 2015 season, as Shaun Suisham tore his ACL diving to assist on a tackle in Sunday’s preseason game against the Vikings. This is exactly the kind of thing you don’t need from your veteran kicker in the […]

Camp Is Open! Football Is Here! I Have Internet!

Oh, whoa, hey there. Wow, it’s uh, it’s been a while. Personalblog: I’m on vacation and brought my old laptop from college so I could write while I’m here. The place I’m at has wifi, but apparently my laptop is a conscientious objector to wireless internet at this stage of its life, until today! For […]

Does Roger Goodell Hate Kickers?

Hey, who wants to take some more shots at our Dear Leader Roger Goodell? Everyone? Thought so. In this case, however, we’re actually going to do it on behalf of a group of people Goodell is systematically oppressing: Placekickers. Jeff Reed (remember him?) made some noise about this last month, and he might be on […]

Steelers Rookies Assigned Stupid Jersey Numbers

UPDATE: Haha, whoa, I missed this. They changed the rules according to proposal #22 on this list. Now I have to re-develop all my jersey number biases, UGH. Here’s a poorly kept secret about myself: I have a strange affinity for jersey numbers. I care about them. Some look right on a player or position, […]

Steelers Draft Class Addresses Needs, Adds Luxury

The 2015 NFL Draft is in the books, and the Steelers have augmented their roster with the following players: Round 1: Bud Dupree, OLB, Kentucky The masses clamored for a cornerback in the first round, but the Steelers were still weak at linebacker. With the sudden retirement of Jason Worilds, new defensive coordinator Keith Butler […]
