If Ben can’t play Sunday against the Ravens, can Byron Leftwich get the job done? A Steelers victory would tie the team at the top of the AFC North with the Ravens who are at 7-2. This is the biggest game of the season for the Steelers who play the Ravens twice in the next few weeks. Nothing gives the team a better chance to win than Ben Roethlisberger does. For Leftwich, this has to be on of the biggest games of his career. Leftwich just doesn’t have the quick release that Ben has. It is going to take a total team effort for the Steelers to pull off a victory over the Ravens. Baltimore has found a new source of energy after they were badly beaten by the Texans. For the Steelers game you can bet they will be up. If the Steelers can’t give Leftwich the protection he is going to need, it could be a rough road against Baltimore. Losing Ben before this Baltimore game is a tough blow. We will see what the Steelers are made of this week….

Cursing At NFL Officials Will Yield a 15-Yard Penalty, We Have Proof

During the Steelers and Chiefs match-up on Monday Night Football an unsportsmanlike penalty was given to Willie Colon for cursing, we are serious. I have logged quite a few hours over the past 15 years or so in front of TV’s on Sundays, yet this is the first time I have seen a ref call out a player like this. Mike Tomlin can be seen following the call bending an official’s...

Baltimore Ravens: Week 11 NFL Power Rankings (#7)

Last week: 14 (+7) Record: 7-2 This team really lucked out. They were looking shaky (even off a 35 point home win) and had 2 games against the Steelers in their next 3 weeks and looked poised to cede their division lead, but Ben Roethlisberger’s injury changes that. They’re still allowing 40 more yards per game than they gain and have only won 2 games by more than 10 points despite...

Steelers Winners And Losers – Week 10 – Chiefs

The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Kansas City Chiefs 16-13 in overtime Monday night at Heinz Field to move to 6-3 on the season. It certainly wasn't a pretty win against an ugly team and below are the players, or group of players, that I thought had winning and losing performances in the game. Trust me when I say that the losers list could certainly be a little longer if...

Just a few days ago Ben Roethlisberger was telling the world that he would miss a game if it meant he could be present for the birth of his child. Now Big Ben may miss a game because of another reason. Roethlisberger injured his shoulder in Monday night’s game after being sandwiched by Chiefs linebackers [...]

Pittsburgh Steeler quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will miss Sundays game against the Baltimore Ravens. Exactly how many games the play caller will miss is unknown.

Monday Morning Chrysler New Yorker

Man the Steelers really pushed my "keep calm" mantra to the limit, didn't they? Even with Kansas CIty jumping to an early 10-point lead, they didn't do much to put the game away. And that included getting into the end zone 2 more times, only on a holding-negated pass and a nonsense tuck rule "fumble" return. Ben and Mike Wallace hooked up on an incredible...
