Todd Graham Sucks

Note: this post would have more pictures of hot girls in it, but I’m at work and can’t just Google “ASU cheerleader” Former University of Pittsburgh head football coach Todd Graham has jumped ship for the gig at Porn Star Arizona State University. Graham, in one season with the Pitt Panthers, went 6-6 while dealing […]

The NFL has a separate standard for James Harrison

After today’s announcement that James Harrison will be suspended one game for his helmet-to-helmet hit on QB Colt McCoy, I’m convinced the league has a personal vendetta against James Harrison.  Harrison is the first player to get suspended for a tackle since the Packers’ Charles Martin got two games for a hit on Bears QB […]

James Harrison suspended one game by NFL

Most Steeler fans would qualify as “James Harrison apologists.” We’re included in that. We don’t think Harrison is going out onto football fields hoping to give someone a concussion or break somebody’s neck. But Roger Goodell (along with most of the NFL) perceives him as a dirty player. And Roger Goodell’s perception has earned James […]

At Least One Orange Team Lost. STEELERS WIN.

This had all the makings of a trap game. Or it would have, if we all didn’t remember a stunning loss to the Browns on Thursday Night Football in 2009. After both teams scored on their opening drives, you settled in for a back-and-forth struggle for a win in the standings. Little did you know […]

Banged-up Steelers defeat Browns 14-3

There’s so many different storylines to talk about after this game. It’s funny, because everybody (myself included) expected this to be a stinker of a game.  Ben Roethlisberger injured his ankle in the 2nd quarter and it looked like his season may be over. But in typical Roethlisberger fashion, he was somehow back on the […]

Ben Roethlisberger exits Browns game with left ankle injury

Tough times at Heinz Field right now. Ben Roethlisberger appears to have injured his left ankle after getting sacked by the Browns’ Scott Paxson in the 2nd quarter. The lower part of Roethlisberger’s leg was rolled up on by Paxson and bent in a way that it isn not supposed to.  Roethlisberger walked off the […]

Browns missing a deep threat; Hillis to the Steelers in 2012?

-B- First off, if you are in Pittsburgh, you should be trying to go to the game tonight. The combination of a Thursday night kickoff, Pens/Flyers and a ‘poor’ matchup against the Browns has ticket prices around $60 lower than average. Our boys at TiqIQ can hook you up with some solid deals on E-Tickets. -B- Mike […]

Woodley out against Browns, plenty of tickets left for game

-B- Not only is Sidney Crosby back on the shelf, but LB LaMarr Woodley is out for tomorrow’s game against the Browns. Woodley reinjured his hamstring during his return last week. Hopefully one more week off will do the trick. Emmanuel Sanders, Jonathan Dwyer, Chris Carter and Arnaz Battle have been ruled out as well.  […]

For Steelers, the youth movement is already underway

Sad news from the Steelers today: longtime defensive lineman Chris Hoke, 35, is going to have season-ending neck surgery and is likely to retire after this season. That makes him the second defensive lineman to have season and likely career-ending surgery this year after Aaron Smith bowed out several weeks ago.  Heading into this season, […]

Let The Home Stretch Begin. STEELERS WIN.

When Ben Roethlisberger is laughing on the sidelines, Troy Polamalu is on the bench with his feet up, and Charlie Batch is kneeling on the ball*, you know things are good. This is the time of the year when real contenders come through and the flashy flukey teams start to fall apart. Yesterday, the Steelers […]

Steelers offense comes to life in 35-7 trouncing of Bengals

After a poor offensive effort against the Kansas City Chiefs last week, the Steelers felt like they had something to prove against a Bengals defense that hadn’t allowed a TD in Pittsburgh since 2009. The Steelers didn’t mess around this time. They put up 4 touchdowns in the 2nd quarter and the game was over […]

Who Are The Career Leaders in Total GunslingR?

On Tuesday, ESPN’s DJ Gallo introduced a new statistic called Total GunslingR, designed to measure the gunslinging ability of a quarterback. This immediately brought two questions to mind. First, Gallo claims that Brett Favre is the classic gunslinger (which I would agree with), but is Favre really among the leaders in this statistic? Second, who […]

Troy Polamalu’s mysterious injury & the surprising Mr. Brown

-B- Ed Bouchette penned a great piece today on the mysterious nature of Troy Polamalu’s latest injury — did he or did he not sustain a concussion? Mike Tomlin hasn’t said yes or no. Neither has Polamalu or anybody employed by the team.  Polamalu has a LONG history of concussions, going back to when he […]


Pretty disappointing ending to an otherwise fun weekend of football. The Steelers dominated the Chiefs everywhere but the scoreboard. It should have been a victory by double digits, but the Steelers played down to an inferior opponent (again) and scraped by with a 13-9 win. As Mike Tomlin says though, style points don’t matter. A […]
