Romeo Crennel will give up defensive coordinator duties for Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs can’t stop anyone on defensive, and the teams most important coach figures if he stop calling the defense, maybe it will get better. Pro Football Talk is reporting that Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel will no longer call the defensive signals. “We have a young team and some guys, the perception may be that I’m a defensive coach, that I’m a defensive...

Hold My Thought On Charlie Batch Getting Released This Weekend

With the Pittsburgh Steelers possibly needing to make a roster move this weekend to promote wide receiver David Gilreath to the roster because of the ankle injury suffered by wide receiver Antonio Brown this past Sunday, I originally speculated that veteran quarterback Charlie Batch could be released for the weekend without issue and resigned to the roster on Tuesday. There is...

Steelers’ Ryan Clark, and others, are likely on NFL watchlists

If there’s one thing you set your clock to every NFL season, it’s the Steelers being at the forefront of some type of controversy with the league. Usually it’s the defense and one of the more common names that comes to mind is safety Ryan Clark. It’s not that Clark goes looking for trouble (at least not all the time) but it seems to find him. This past weekend he stirred...

Animated Gif: Steelers Offensive Line & Tight End Heath Miller Help Convert Key 3rd Down

One of the most important runs that the Pittsburgh Steelers had Sunday in their win over the New York Giants came on their final scoring drive when they were faced with a third down and 2 situation from the Giants 9 yard-line with 5:03 left in the game. The Steelers were down 3 points at the time and a failure to convert would have likely resulted in a Shaun Suisham chip shot to...

An Appreciation of Steelers Heath Miller in Just One Play

I’ve written plenty of pieces on Heath Miller and there has never been one that hasn’t been deserved which means there hasn’t been a bad one. What can you really say negatively about this guy? Well, he did drop a pass Sunday against the Giants so away with him! Not really… Actually, there was another play in the win over New York that I thought epitomized the hard work and...

Steelers secondary thriving without Polamalu

The Pittsburgh Steelers secondary is finding there is life without injured star safety Troy Polamalu. The Steelers are first in the NFL in passing yards allowed, giving up just 174 per game. They held Eli Manning to a miserable 125 passing yards in a 24-20 victory over the New York Giants last week as Pittsburgh (5-3) won its third straight game. Polamalu has played in just two...

Crennel, Chiefs face desperate times

Coach Romeo Crennel knows only one way to handle the type of mess the Chiefs' 2012 season has been: He works even harder than his normal pace, which would fatigue many men much younger than Crennel's 65 years. During the team's bye week and over the long weekend after losing to the San Diego Chargers on a Thursday night, Crennel gave the players and his staff time off...

Steelers' Ta'amu apologizes for arrest

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu apologized after waiving his right to a preliminary hearing on charges stemming from an alleged drunken-driving rampage.

Rashard Mendenhall Will Start Once Healthy

Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson said once Rashard Mendenhall returns to full health, he’ll be the team’s starting running back. “Rashard has always been our lead dog and our top runner. Rashard is the complete package — power, speed, explosiveness,” said Wilson, via Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “He is the guy who can take a 10-yard run and...

Quinn tried to play through concussion

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Brady Quinn had waited three years for another chance to be a starting quarterback in the NFL. He wasn't going to let a concussion put him back on the sideline.
