Other Positions the Steelers Should Target

We all know the Steelers are hurting for defensive backs and pass rushers. Those positions basically have to be addressed, or I’m going to Kevin Colbert’s house and fighting him. But what else are the Steelers lacking? What other positions need an influx of youth? TIGHT END Heath Miller, the glorious pinnacle of American Football […]

Heads Up: The Draft Starts Tonight

When you don’t know much about college football, the lead-up to the draft can be pretty monotonous. I don’t know who the Steelers are going to draft because I don’t know about the athletes that are available. There are ten thousand other dudes on the internet who have been doing mock drafts since January; they […]

Next Domino Falls… Ike Taylor Retires

Longtime Steelers shutdown corner Ike Taylor has followed Troy Polamalu in deciding to call it a career. Ike Taylor was an easy target for fans and pundits because of his lousy hands, but he was anything but a target for opposing quarterbacks throughout his career. Ike never got the credit that guys like Asante Samuel […]

Troy Polamalu Retires

“Good luck putting this one into words” -the universe, at Steeler writers last night. The man, the myth, the legend, Troy Polamalu has announced his retirement from the NFL. It’s been a long time coming, as Troy has started to slow down in his last few seasons, to the point where he actually played football […]

Le’Veon Bell Suspended 3 Games

Word came down today that Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell will be suspended 3 games to start the season after his arrest for a DUI during the preseason last year. LeGarrette Blount got one game for the same incident. I don’t mind that Blount got a lesser sentence than Bell. I think it’s stupid that in […]

Steelers Re-Sign Darrius Heyward-Bey For Some Reason

The Steelers have announced a one-year contract agreement with Darrius “Oh I forgot about him, did he play last year?” Heyward-Bey. Behind Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton, and Martavis Bryant, DHB figures to only really play on special teams. But you have a 6″2′ guy, known more for his speed than his hands, and the Steelers […]

Steelers Re-Sign James Harrison- What Does It Mean?

It looks like James Harrison will be finishing his career in black and gold for sure this time. Announced Sunday afternoon was the signing of the 37-year-old linebacker to a two-year contact. There are a couple of takeaways here. First: The Steelers are completely barren at outside linebacker. Sunday morning, the depth chart consisted of […]

Steelers Finally Extend Ben Roethlisberger

The Steelers have locked up their franchise quarterback through the 2019 season, per everyone on the internet and I’m not going to bother linking a source. After questionably handing all the money to Marcus Gilbert and Cortez Allen last summer, the Steelers did right by the team’s most important player and gave him the chance […]

Jason Worilds Retires at 27

File this one under “Well, that was unexpected.” Astute readers (all three of you!) may notice that I haven’t written anything since Dick LeBeau departed the Steelers. Part of that is because it’s been difficult to enjoy football lately. The bad guys won the Super Bowl, the Steelers look ready to dismantle their entire veteran […]

Combating Post-Playoff Ennui

Easily the most pretentious blog title I’ve written so far. You may have heard, but the Steelers were eliminated from the postseason last week. I haven’t talked about it here yet, firstly because it’s always a good idea to give it some time before reflecting on the end of a season, and secondly because this […]
