Offensive grades: Air assault continues against Lions

Ben Roethlisberger stole the show again yesterday against Detroit, with another solid performance from Rashard Mendenhall helping him out. The Steelers moved the ball with ease until the 4th quarter, where Bruce Arians’ curious reliance on the passing game led to a few short drives and helped Detroit claw back into the game. Grades after […]

Quick thoughts: Steelers 28 Lions 20

I could have not watched this game and probably written the script of how this game would go. Games like these are slowly becoming the blueprint for the 2009 Steelers. The Steelers did whatever they wanted to on offense for a quarter a half and looked like they were well on their way to a […]

Offensive grades: Steelers punish Chargers

The Steelers put on an offensive clinic in all phases of the game Sunday night. The offensive line was dominant and all of the skill players performed at the high level we’ve come to expect. It’s hard finding much to criticize after such a big time performance, but after the jump we hand out some […]

Quick Thoughts: Steelers 38 Chargers 28

I had this whole thing already typed up and done during the 4th quarter. But the Steelers near choke job (again) put a bad taste in my mouth and made me redo the entire thing. But before we get into the bad finish by the Steelers, there was a lot of good. The Steelers proved […]

Gameday: Chargers @ Steelers

I’ve always  said there’s no such thing as a must-win game in Week Four. But this is about as close as you can get. The prospect of being 1-3 four weeks into the season isn’t something we even want to think about. Phil Rivers is one of the best QBs in the game and has […]

Isaac Redman added to roster

The yinzers get their wish. Redman will be dressed for Sunday night’s game. It’s doubtful Redman will see a lot of carries since he’s still behind Rashard Mendenhall and Mewelde Moore on the depth chart, but he could definitely get some looks in short yardage situations. A lot of fans have been adamant in saying […]

Lack of execution killing Steelers

The Steelers are 1-2. The sky is falling. Blame has been widespread. People are already wanting to make widespread changes. I’ve read lots of theories why the Steelers aren’t winning football games. Lots of people know how to fix this team: Fire Mike Tomlin. Fire Bruce Arians. Bench Limas Sweed. Bench Willie Parker. Abandon the […]

Steelers 20 Bengals 23: Dey Got Better

  Bam and I were split on how this game was going to turn out. I thought it was going to be a complete blowout from the start by the Steelers and they would never turn back. Bam thought it was going to be a close game with the Steelers giving it up at the […]

Gameday: Steelers @ Bengals

Well, this one should be interesting. Last year, the Steelers pulverized a weakened Bengals team twice and Hines Ward broke Keith Rivers’ jaw. Now, the Bengals look to be much improved. They aren’t elite by any means, but a healthy Carson Palmer and an improving young defense makes them a lot more interesting than they […]

Bruce Arians is not the devil

“Everybody thinks they can call the plays.” Ron Cook used that line once in a column about Ken Whisenhunt. Bruce Arians said it again this offseason. And it’s true. Come Monday morning, Pittsburgh is full of masterful offensive coordinators who think if they could pull out their Madden playbook, the Steelers would never lose a […]

Bears 17 Steelers 14: Long time coming

It’s easy to be a fan when your time is winning playoff games and Super Bowls. This week? Not so much. This is the first loss for the Steelers since December 21st of last year. It’s been a long time. Strangely enough, I’m not too upset about it. The reason the Steelers lost today wasn’t […]

Behind enemy lines: On the Bears with Midway Illustrated

I am many things, but an expert on the Chicago Bears is not one of them. Thankfully, our Bloguin brother Brett over at Midway Illustrated is a Bears genius. Seriously. He’s got one of the best Chicago Bears blogs online and provides insight to the team and analysis that we only dream of. If you […]

Jerome Bettis is not impressed with these Steelers

Not much going on this Wednesday, but SI has got former Steeler great Jerome Bettis “writing” a column for them and it’s not pretty as far as Steeler related stuff goes. Bettis provides an insider’s prespective to the NFl through six points in his column this week. Two of the six items are problems he […]

Ben Roethlisberger is an average QB

We don’t believe it, but lots of people do. So why do people think that Ben Roethlisberger is an elite quarterback? There’s one clear answer. Because he plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Plain and simple. Never in my life have I heard the words “overrated” and “underrated” used so much to describe the same player. Our […]

Steelers 13 Titans 10: All about the Benjamin

Tonight was (mostly) fun. It’s what Norm and I expected at least. Norm said the Titans would be held under 100 yards rushing. They had 83. I said the Steelers would not run the ball at all and win be a FG. They did. As great as it was to see the Steelers win in […]
