Ben Roethlisberger and his Pittsburgh Steelers got off to a slow start this season. Many think it was because Roethlisberger didn’t like the new offense the Steelers put into place. Nonetheless the Steelers are only one game back of the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC North at 4-3. The Steelers are going to need a lot of help from their defense this week to help stop the Giants Eli Manning to stay in touch with the Ravens who play the Cleveland Browns Sunday. The Steelers can get a win if the defense can put pressure on Eli Manning. That is the trick, trying to slow down the Giants offense has to start with stopping Manning. Roethlisberger can get the job done if his defense can hold to top-notch Giants offense. Big Ben has shown the new offense works and it works well when his guys hold onto the football. The Steelers have seen a lot of dropped balls this season and Sunday when they take on the Giants, the defense is going to have to do their job and the Steelers receivers need to hang...

It may seem like a decade ago, but it really was just this past summer and entire preseason where Pittsburgh Steelers’ wideout Mike Wallace sat out in a contract dispute with the team. Wallace certainly didn’t do himself any favors with the fan base, but I think in general, many fans understood what Wallace was doing as other players in the league went down with injuries in the...
The Pittsburgh Steelers resumed practice on Thursday as they prepare to take on the New York Giants Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
The Thursday injury report is now out and it shows that linebacker LaMarr Woodley (hamstring), linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring) and running back Baron Batch (shin) did not practice. The status of Woodley heading into the weekend now appears to...
Sure, the deep passes to Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace are down so far this season under the direction of new offensive coordinator Todd Haley, but he is still on pace to have a solid season, and the process might just be increasing his market value as well.
Despite the lack of deep receptions, the Steelers fourth year receiver has 36 catches on the season and...
It’s funny how controversial this term, “dink and dunk” can be when it comes to football these days. It’s not that there is anything wrong with it, at least I don’t think so because the ultimate goal in professional sports is to win no matter what. If it’s short passing; fine, if it’s going deep … Continue reading »
There were some worries that the Steelers-Giants game to be played at MetLife Stadium in New York may be effected by Hurricane Sandy. However, the stadium was not affected by the Hurricane and the game is set to be played as scheduled. There could still be complications and there are a lot of factor ContinueThe post Steelers-Giants the Game Will Go On appeared first on SteelBlitz.
The players on the Pittsburgh Steelers defense liken Hall of Fame coordinator Dick LeBeau to a father figure. When the critics started chirping the 75-year-old LeBeau was losing his touch after the Steelers got off to a slow start, his players rallied around him.
The proof is on the field.
Nearing the season's midway point, Pittsburgh (4-3) is second in the NFL in yards allowed...
The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Washington Redskins 27-12 Sunday at Heinz Field and below are my first half notes from the game with the second half notes to follow soon.
A nice start by Jonathan Dwyer as he turns a possible stuff into positive yardage. The fake bubble screen that resulted in an explosive play to Heath Miller was nicely designed and well executed. The first catch...
Due to Sandy's aftermath, the Steelers have no choice but to fly into Newark on Sunday morning and bus to its game against the Giants at MetLife Stadium that afternoon.

After 2 straight wins, the Steelers are back in the AFC playoff picture at 4-3 and that’s despite Troy Polamalu being out. When he’s in the lineup over the last 3 years, they allow about a touchdown less per game when he’s in there so it’s good news that they’ve been playing well without him. Ben Roethlisberger is quietly having an MVP caliber...

Pittsburgh Steeler wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders is stating that he will be meeting with the NFL office in regards to a leg cramp he developed in the huddle which saved the Steelers a timeout in a win over the Cincinnati Bengals. There is no word on the type of injury he will fake to get
