It’s funny how all the coaches look smarter when the defense forces a couple of turnovers at opportune times. It doesn’t seem like anyone is in a particularly good mood about this game, maybe because we see the path to another mediocre 8-8 season, maybe because you’re a draft nut getting the itch to check […]
Editor’s Note: Today we have a guest post by Matt Stevens. If you have something to say about the Steelers too, you can always get in touch! There were certainly a fair amount of questions being asked after last week’s embarrassing loss to the Cleveland Browns. All of a sudden, fans of the franchise are […]
You get the sense that Mike Tomlin believes he’s in trouble. In a lot of cases, a head coach responds to a warmer seat by yanking his veteran QB for the young guy holding a clipboard behind him. However, the quarterback isn’t the problem in Pittsburgh, and even if it were, it’s Landry Jones sitting […]
I recap every game the Steelers play. I even have a recap and notes written from Sunday’s affair in Cleveland. But I recap games the Steelers play. I’m not sure they played Sunday. Let’s not re-live that abomination. This team is at a crossroads right now, sitting at an iffy 3-3 with the hard part […]
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 […]
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.
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
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 […]
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 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 […]
It is going to be a long season. Jump.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
