Bruce Arians named Colts’ offensive coordinator

So much for retirement. Arians worked with the Colts over a decade ago as a QB coach.  Really bizarre ending for him in Pittsburgh. It’s obvious now that things didn’t end amicably between him and the Rooneys.   I’m suddenly more confident that Jim Caldwell will be the Steelers new offensive coordinator. 

Video: Root Sports broadcasts a Dan Bylsma F-Bomb

This is the most non-Steelers related post you will ever see on here. I was watching the Pens game on Root Sports tonight and part of their “all-access night” included showing Pens head coach Dan Bylsma in the looker room before the game.  Awesome right? Only problem was Root didn’t edit the clip carefully enough […]

Five Steelers named to 2012 Pro Bowl roster

The NFL announced Pro Bowl rosters tonight and a few Steelers were honored.  Ben Roethlisberger, Maurkice Pouncey, Mike Wallace will represent the Steelers on offense. Troy Polamalu is the lone representative for the defense and, surprisingly, Antonio Brown is the AFC’s starting KR. Pouncey and Polamalu are ‘starters.’  Brown is a little bit of a […]


Today, the Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the St. Louis Rams by a score of 27-0. Now go spend time with your family. Merry Christmas, Steeler Nation. 

Batch Will Start Tomorrow

Looks like the Steelers heard my pleas. Ben Roethlisberger will not play on Saturday, and Charlie Batch will be under center against the St. Louis Rams. The Steelers have likely accepted the fate of a fifth seed, content to play the AFC West champion on wildcard weekend. In the meantime, Ben Roethlisberger can work on getting […]

Saturday could be Hines Ward’s last game at Heinz Field

There are lots of reasons to shrug your shoulders at Saturday afternoon’s contest against the St. Louis Rams. The Steelers are already guaranteed a playoff spot and odds are they will enter the playoffs as the AFC’s 5th seed. Plus, the Rams are awful, Roethlisberger likely isn’t playing and it is Christmas Eve.  But there […]

The Case Against Ben Roethlisberger Starting

Dejan Kovacevic wrote in his column today that the Steelers should play Ben Roethlisberger these final two weeks of the season. Now, Kovacevic is no joke. He knows what he’s talking about in every sport and I agree with him close to 100% of the time. This is one of the times I don’t. He’s […]


POWER OUTAGEOh god, the horror! Decades from now, your children will look to you and say “Do you remember that fateful December eve?” The expression on your face will answer their question. You will relive the experience you wanted so badly to forget. You will tell your children of the uncertainty, and how it gave […]

Turnovers, penalties and Andy Lee black out Steelers

This was a frustrating game no matter which way you look at it. I think the attitude of a lot of Steelers fans heading into this week was that the 49ers weren’t as good as their record. After an ugly 20-3 loss , the same thing will be said about Pittsburgh this week.  The Steelers […]

Video: Blown transformer near Candlestick Park delays Monday Night Football

Tonight’s game has been delayed by 30-40 minutes after a transformer in the area went out, causing a brief power outage at Candlestick Park. The lights are now back on.  Here’s video courtesy of Empty Netters. 25cNGACC_pY[/youtube]  No word if Bane is behind this or not. If Hines Ward lines up to return the […]

Video: Steelers’ Hines Ward in Dark Knight Rises Trailer

This is going to be epic. The theatrical trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, filmed in Pittsburgh, hit the Internet early this week. It’s the first footage we’ve seen from the filming that took place at Heinz Field starring Hines Ward and many other Steelers. (The full list is Ben Roethlisberger, Hines Ward, Willie Colon, Maurkice […]

Preview: Steelers at 49ers, December 19 2011

For this week’s preview, I am compelled to make a generic “keys to the game” list, but statistically informed. However, I can’t call them “keys” because everyone else does that. So, in honor of the 49ers, I’m calling them “gold nuggets”, and there are 49 of them! Just kidding, I wouldn’t do that to you, […]

10 quick thoughts on 49ers/Steelers

It’s a tough Monday to be at work. Between the holiday’s and a big Monday night matchup between the Steelers and 49ers, I’m betting plenty of Steelers fans will have issues focusing today. With that in mind, here are 10 thoughts I have on tonight’s matchup between Pittsburgh and San Francisco on Monday Night Football.  […]

The Steelers couldn’t stand Todd Graham either

Great stuff from Ed Bouchette today on the Steelers and former Pitt coach Todd Graham: The Steelers practically threw a party when they heard that Pitt coach Todd Graham quit. That goes from the top to the bottom, from those who work in the offices to the coaches and every-day workers who came into contact […]
