I received a few emails since the post yesterday in which I broke down the rushing of the Pittsburgh Steelers running backs by direction and was asked if I could post the stats of each running back by direction and down from 2011. I compiled the stats of just Rashard Mendenhall and Isaac Redman below as there really is no reason to do Mewelde Moore, Jonathan Dwyer and John Clay as they all combined for 48 carries total.

Steelers Figure To Have David DeCastro Under Contract Soon

I posted recently about what likely was the hold up on the Pittsburgh Steelers getting first round draft pick David DeCastro under contract. Now it seems like the logjam ahead of DeCastro is starting to move thanks to the New England Patriots drawing the line in the sand this past week with their first round pick Chandler Jones, the 21st overall selection this past April. Jones...

“Battle of the bulge”: Steelers McLendon vs Ta’amu vs Hampton

As we remember our soldiers this past Memorial Day weekend, I was thinking also about a topic to write about. I tend to do that a lot, multi tasking.  While surfing through Google (man Mr. Google is amazing isn’t he?) I came across some information and quotes on Steelers 3rd yr NT Steve McLendon. However before going any further let’s be clear, by referencing a military topic...

Woodley says Steelers should have “easily beat” Broncos

It’s been nearly six months, and yet the Steelers still feel the sting of defeat. Of course, I’m referring to last January, when the Tim Tebow-led Broncos stunned Pittsburgh during the wild card playoffs. Looking back (begrudgingly, I’m sure), it’s a game that has stuck in the craw of several members of the black and gold, including linebackers LaMarr Woodley and Larry Foote...
