Steel City Blitz:
While I’m doing my best to keep the faith and hope that the Pittsburgh Steelers can turn their season around this Sunday, I also have to be realistic.
Teams that start 0-3 make the playoffs about as often as your two-year old eats his vegetables.
With that in mind, I’ve already seen a number of discussions on what the Steelers will look like in the 2014 season.
I’ll get much more in depth on these issues when the time is more appropriate but here are some quick thoughts regarding several contractual issues for players.
First up is Brett Keisel. At 35 years old, Keisel’s better days are behind him although we couldn’t have asked for much more from a seventh round selection. He will be a free agent at the end of this season and I just don’t see a reason to bring him back.
Next is Ryan Clark who will also be a free agent following this season. It’s pretty clear to me that Clark has his sights set on the television world following his career. His frequent stops at ESPN and the NFL Netwo...

Today Tom Brady could have dropped some sensitive information like something you would expect from Adam Schefter. The whole thing started when Brady was asked about his relationship with former Patriots backup quarterback Brian Hoyer, who threw three touchdown passes in the Browns 31-27 win over the Vikings on Sunday. That question led Brady to give […]

It sounds like the Steelers are limiting Miller’s work as a precaution since he just came off of ACL rehab.

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ backfield has been a mess all season long. Rookie Le’Veon Bell was supposed to be the team’s starting running back. Bell was a solid pick for the Steelers in this recent draft but the rookie running back suffered an injury during the preseason that’s kept him out of the Steelers’ first three games.
Bell is expected to make his return this week...
Pittsburgh Steelers running back Isaac Redman shared some information with reporters on Wednesday that is likely to make Roger Goodell cringe and could result in his team being fined.

What a fall it has been for Pittsburgh Steelers running back Isaac Redman. In just the span of a few weeks, he has gone from starter to personal escort, playing just to help push Ben Roethlisberger forward on a third and one for a first down.
There have been some extenuating circumstances that have led Redman to being demoted behind new co-starters Le’Veon Bell...

Since the moment that the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted David DeCastro in the first round of the 2012 NFL draft, the offensive guard has been given the highest of expectations to live up to from its fanbase. He was off to a fine start after winning the right guard position from Ramon Foster during training camp, but his rookie campaign was derailed by an injury in...

Enjoy the light-hearted side of the game. Away from the win and losses. No mention of sus...
The bad news is that the Steelers have another problem. The good news is that it’s not directly related to their crappy performance this season.
Running back Isaac Redman claims he suffered a concussion against the Bengals in Week Two. Redman asserts that he managed to persuade the doctors that he was fine and he thereafter returned to the game played practiced throughout the...
Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell says his foot is 100 percent, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.Fantasy Spin:Bell is expect to make his NFL debut Sunday against the Vikings after missing the first three games with a sprained foot. The rookie should eventually take over as the lead back but he's a risky flex option Sunday given his uncertain role and Pittsburgh...
Last week: 22 (-4)
The Steelers had 21 first downs, 2 punts, and 459 total yards to 15, 6, and 258 for the Bears, but lost by 17 because they committed 5 turnovers, 2 which went for touchdowns, without forcing a single turnover. They are now -9 in turnovers on the season, tied with the also 0-3 Giants for worst in the NFL. Fortunately, that kind of thing tends to be inconsistent...

Given all that has happened over the past few weeks with the inside linebackers, I was feeling somewhat confident that I would be seeing Vince Williams announced with the starting lineup tomorrow, getting the nod over Kion Wilson, over whom he has been seeing twice as many snaps anyway. And after all, what’s in a name?
After re-watching the Chicago Bears game...
Season 4, Episode 26 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I preview the Sunday game in London between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Minnesota Vikings and that includes us going over the injury report of both teams.

Dick LeBeau's never had a rookie call his defensive signals for the Steelers until Vince Williams came along.
