Treading Water. STEELERS WIN

This game wasn’t pretty, but in the end all that matters is that the Steelers got the W. I know, I know, Jacksonville is a terrible football team, they give up 30 points a game, it’s always an extra home game because every NFL fan in Jacksonville is a Steeler fan. The Steelers could have […]

Back Down To Earth. STEELERS LOSE

It took me some extra time, but I did get to sit down and watch this weekend’s Steeler game on DVR. The recap is a day late, but it’s still the recap, so enjoy.

Regarding James Harrison’s Return…

Whoops, I forgot to actually post a thing I had written when Harrison re-signed, and now it’s well after the fact. Oh well. Instead of writing stuff you already know about how desperate the Steelers are on defense, I’ll just share with you this episode of The Draw Play, an NFL-based webcomic by

This Is What Good Teams Do. STEELERS WIN.

We talked about this being an important game for the Steelers going forward. I hold that it was. Yes, Carolina came in a little bit banged up and that played to the Steelers’ advantage, but that’s hardly reason to discount the win. The Steelers completely dominated the Panthers, and there’s not much more you can ask […]

We Are Going To Learn A Lot Tonight

Really, there’s one question we all have about the Steelers, and we don’t have the answer yet. We might have an answer tonight. The question is simply: “Are the Steelers a good football team?” Tonight, they will go on the road to play the Carolina Panthers, one of the best teams in the NFL right […]

Ben Roethlisberger Is Hurt, Maybe Not Injured

Ben Roethlisberger took a pretty hefty shot to the chest courtesy of Courtney Upshaw last Thursday. Another thing that happened last Thursday: Ben looked bad. His throws were off target and he didn’t have the same command of the offense we’re used to seeing from him. Those two things might be related. Roethlisberger disclosed this […]

James Harrison Is Not A Hyprocrite

If you haven’t been paying attention, you’ve been missing out. Roger Goodell has constructed a web of lies surrounding Ray Rice and everything is falling apart. I won’t bother recounting everything, because it’s all over the internet already and the story keeps changing (as the NFL has to keep digging this hole deeper with more […]

Bullet Dodged. STEELERS WIN

Yikes. When people use the phrase “a tale of two halves,” this is the game they are talking about. The Steelers were invincible in the first half, and then the Browns turned the difficulty all the way down at halftime. They did basically whatever they wanted in the second half, but the Steelers got back […]

Some Stuff Before We Get This Season Started

James Harrison retired as a Steeler yesterday. That’s pretty cool. Harrison was always a little bit overrated in my mind, but you don’t win DPoY without making some plays. He gave us the best years of his career, and I think we can all forgive that weird stint with the Bengals. Elsewhere, Dick LeBeau seems to […]

Steelers Finalize 53-Man Roster: ANALYSIS

With today’s roster deadline, dreams were ended. Several players were released, and the Steelers will go into opening weekend with the league-maximum 53 players. Players released include: QB Brendon Kay – The fourth QB usually gets cut. That happened to Kay. RB Josh Harris – Running backs aren’t terribly difficult to find. Even facing potential […]

First Wave of Cuts Complete

In addition to the nine players the Steelers released earlier today, six more players got their pink slips today to get down to the mandated 75-man roster limit. On their way out this afternoon were: OL Chris Elkins OL Emannuel McCray DL Hebron Fangupo DL Brian Arnfelt RB Tauren Poole LS Luke Ingram With Poole’s release, […]

Steelers Cut No One Of Consequence

The first round of cuts is due today at 4:00. The Steelers got a head start by parting ways with the following players: RB Miguel Maysonet RB Jordan Hall WR CJ Goodwin WR Khasif Moore TE Eric Waters S Jordan Dangerfield CB Devin Smith CB Lewis Toler LB Vic So’oto Who are any of these […]

Gilbert Extended, Keisel Re-Signed

So, the big news today was that tackle Marcus Gilbert got a six-year contract extension from the Steelers. I’m hardly an expert on offensive linemen, which is why I only remember Gilbert for struggling. Obviously the Steelers know more than I do and they expect Gilbert to be a long-term solution at one of the […]
