Troy Polamalu will cut hair for first time in 10 years for charity

Tweet In case you don’t watch the Pittsburgh Steelers all that often or haven’t seen any of his shampoo commercials, safety Troy Polamalu has a pretty impressive head of hair going on.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are 0-2 for the first time since 2002. They're rushing attack is 31st (out of 32 teams) in the NFL.

Chicago Bears: 2013 Week 3 NFL Power Rankings (#9)

Last week: 10 Beating the Vikings by 1 isn’t that impressive, but they did it despite losing the turnover battle, something that only happens 20.9% of the time. The NFC is tough, but the Bears have a chance to be right in the playoff hunt. They aren’t dominating the turnover battle like they were last year, as could be expected, but they have an improved offense thanks to a very...

Chicago Bears at Pittsburgh Steelers: 2013 Week 3 NFL Pick

Chicago Bears (2-0) at Pittsburgh Steelers (0-2) I tweeted before Pittsburgh/Cincinnati that I could see the loser of the game still making the playoffs after starting 0-2 and I still feel Pittsburgh could sneak in, even after losing. It was a pretty competitive game either way. If David Paulson doesn’t fumble in field goal range in the 1st quarter and a tipped ball doesn’t...

Are the Steelers the worst team in the NFL?

The Pittsburgh Steelers are winless after two weeks of the 2013 season.  In the NFL this year 25% of the league has two wins, 50% is 1-1, and the other 25% have not managed to taste victory.  “Well that just makes sense.”  Well, technically such and perfect distribution of wins and losses is probably more of a statistical anomaly than most of us realize.  And just as...

Steelers Defense Allowed Some Serious YAC Against The Bengals

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau always preaches to his defense not to get beat deep and to tackle the catch quickly. While his defense only gave up one deep pass play Monday night to the Cincinnati Bengals, a 61 yard completion to tight end Tyler Eifert, the yards allowed after catch in the game is really what hurt the most. On the 25 passes completed for 280...
