Steelers Acquire Josh Scobee

The Steelers brought in their third kicker of training camp today when they acquired veteran kicker Josh Scobee from Jacksonville. With injuries to Shaun Suisham and Garrett Hartley, a move had to be made. No one seems to know what he was traded for, but the return on a veteran backup kicker (the Jaguars have rookie […]

Steelers Actually Sign Michael Vick

So Bruce Gradkowski messed up his finger and went on injured reserve. With the only other options at quarterback being Landry Jones and what I’m told was once Tajh Boyd, the Steelers reached out to the scrap heap and pulled up what can only be described as the only available option: Michael Vick. I’ll get […]

Steelers To Play On Monday Night Football Just Once In 2015

The Pittsburgh Steelers are one of the most popular NFL franchises thanks to decades of successful play on the field and dozens of superstars donning the black and yellow.  Today, Ben Roethlisberger can boast two Super Bowl trophies to his name and Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown are quickly becoming the two best players in […]

Steeler Nation, Meet Your New Kicker

The Steelers signed Garrett Hartley after working him out along with Alex Henery and Jay Feeley. That’s pretty much it; he’s a free agent kicker. Let’s just hope he fits in and kicks well, just as Suisham did when he came in to replace Jeff Reed.

Shaun Suisham Out For Season With ACL Injury

(photoshop gold right there)   Looks like the Steelers will be bringing in a new kicker for the 2015 season, as Shaun Suisham tore his ACL diving to assist on a tackle in Sunday’s preseason game against the Vikings. This is exactly the kind of thing you don’t need from your veteran kicker in the […]

Camp Is Open! Football Is Here! I Have Internet!

Oh, whoa, hey there. Wow, it’s uh, it’s been a while. Personalblog: I’m on vacation and brought my old laptop from college so I could write while I’m here. The place I’m at has wifi, but apparently my laptop is a conscientious objector to wireless internet at this stage of its life, until today! For […]

Does Roger Goodell Hate Kickers?

Hey, who wants to take some more shots at our Dear Leader Roger Goodell? Everyone? Thought so. In this case, however, we’re actually going to do it on behalf of a group of people Goodell is systematically oppressing: Placekickers. Jeff Reed (remember him?) made some noise about this last month, and he might be on […]

Steelers Rookies Assigned Stupid Jersey Numbers

UPDATE: Haha, whoa, I missed this. They changed the rules according to proposal #22 on this list. Now I have to re-develop all my jersey number biases, UGH. Here’s a poorly kept secret about myself: I have a strange affinity for jersey numbers. I care about them. Some look right on a player or position, […]

Steelers Draft Class Addresses Needs, Adds Luxury

The 2015 NFL Draft is in the books, and the Steelers have augmented their roster with the following players: Round 1: Bud Dupree, OLB, Kentucky The masses clamored for a cornerback in the first round, but the Steelers were still weak at linebacker. With the sudden retirement of Jason Worilds, new defensive coordinator Keith Butler […]

Steelers Draft Bud Dupree, Not a Cornerback

With the 22nd pick in the 2015 draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected outside linebacker Alvin “Bud” Dupree out of Kentucky. That’s fine. The Steelers are hurting for a pass rush just as much as for defensive backs, and improving one of those groups can indirectly improve the other. All the experts are saying the Steelers […]

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 […]
