Why I’m Okay With Google Knowing Everything About Me

Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Fans Voices program and have been provided with a wireless device and six months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product. You may have heard: I have a Droid Maxx. The hardware is from Motorola, and the software is from Google. I get apps […]

So Close. So Far.

Pretty much. The Steelers have been eliminated from postseason contention. Almost everything went perfectly. The Jets beat the Dolphins. The Bengals curb-stomped the defending champion Ravens. The Steelers took care of business against the Browns. The Chargers took the Chiefs to overtime, where the Chiefs scored a defensive touchdown to win the game, except they […]

Week 17: Cleveland Browns

       It's probably the last game of the season. Reminder: for the Steelers to make the playoffs, the Jets have to beat Miami, Kansas City has to beat San Diego, Cincinnati has to beat Baltimore, and of course, the Steelers have to win against Cleveland today at home, which really shouldn't even be […]

Remember the Pro Bowl?

The Pro Bowl is still a thing. Antonio Brown and Troy Polamalu made the team. Ben Roethlisberger and David DeCastro are alternates. Whatev. The Pro Bowl is a joke and will always be a joke, but the roster is at least a nice designation for a player. So congratulations to Troy Polamalu for making it […]

Still Alive. Steelers Win.

Much like the infamous Tony Corrente game in 2010, the most notable story from this week's game centered on the officiating. That's never a good thing in sports. But, again like that game against the Raiders, the Steelers came out on top in spite of it. The win, coupled with the rest of the NFL's […]

Gameday Reminders

As the games of Week 16 get underway, let's keep in mind what to watch for as Steeler fans: 1. Buffalo is at home against Miami. The Bills have to win for the Steelers to make the playoffs. 2. The Browns are in New York to face the Jets. The Jets have to win. 3. […]

How Do The Steelers Make The Playoffs?

Really good breakdown by the Trib's Alan Robinson: [Tribune Review] So right now, the Steelers are 6-8. They have to win out to be 8-8. The 8-6 Ravens have to lose out to finish 8-8. The 8-6 Dolphins have to lose out to finish 8-8. The 7-7 Chargers have to lose one of their last […]

LaMarr Woodley to IR; Is He Done?

The Steelers placed linebacker LaMarr Woodley on injured reserve today, ending his season and perhaps his career as a Steeler. A converted defensive end coming out of Michigan, Woodley became an adept pass rusher, highlighted by the sack and forced fumble that won Superbowl XLIII. Since that dominant 2008 season, Woodley has struggled to stay […]

Ben Huber and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day

Wow, where has this team been all season? The Bengals looked like… well, the Bengals and the Steelers looked like a team that should have dominated the AFC North all season. Of course, there's almost no coming back to make the playoffs anymore, but at least a win like this gets everyone back from the […]

Week 15: Cincinnati Bengals

     As of this post being written, the Steelers are still alive. This will probably just make things more annoying. The late games are on now, and a Jets win over the Panthers would officially eliminate the Steelers (I think.) Carolina is wearing the best uniform in football though. Not sure why Green Bay […]

Cody Wallace Fined More Than Half His Paycheck

Cody Wallace is the latest spare part to be worked into the Steelers' offensive line, and he got himself in some trouble this week for a few dirty hits against the Dolphins. The two fines totaled $17,875. Cody Wallace makes $630,000 per year on his current contract, which breaks down to $12,115.38 per week (or […]

We Could Really Drag This Out

The Steelers have not been mathematically eliminated from playoff contention. In fact, if the playoff machine is to be believed, the Steelers may still be alive when they play Sunday night, after most of the other games are wrapped up. This is not good. Everyone is in agreement that the Steelers won't play in January, […]

Heartbreaker. Steelers Lose.

For yet another week, the Steelers came in "with their season on the line." It's been about a month of that now, right? Well, the offense seems to have everything figured out, as they scored four touchdowns. The defense gave up 34 though, and that adds up to a loss. There's a lot more to […]
