BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The Pittsburgh Steelers are in the dance that is the NFL playoffs, but they will be pursuing a league leading seventh Lombardi Trophy without starting running back Rashard Mendenhall. For some teams, losing a key player would be detrimental, but the Steelers have a way of preparing for these types of problems. Throughout history, we have seen people step up to carry the load for...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Isaac Redman replaced an injured Rashard Mendenhall and ran for a touchdown as Pittsburgh limped into the AFC playoffs with a 13-9 win Sunday over Cleveland, the Steelers' 16th victory in 17 games against the Browns.
Redman scored on a 7-yard run in the third quarter for the Steelers (12-4), who finished tied with Baltimore for first in the AFC North but lost...
Dawson, who came back as the team's franchised player in 2011, admitted after Sunday's loss to the Steelers that he's not sure if he'll return for a 14th season.

BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY
Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark will not play Sunday against the Broncos in Denver due to a sickle cell trait condition that is exacerbated by the thin air in the Mile High City.
Pretty simple decision.
Last time Clark played in Denver he almost died. It is just a Football game, nothing to lose your life over.
“I met with Ryan Clark and have informed him I am not going to allow him to play in this game,” Tomlin said Tuesday, calling it an “easy decision.”
Good for Tomlin. This is the type of decision that shows why players love Tomlin.
The Cleveland Browns laid a hurt on Ben Roethlisberger the last time the two teams met on December 8th. The Cleveland Defense hit Roethlisberger and Big Ben still isn’t able to walk properly yet. Now Tomlin is stupid enough to place Big Ben’s health in harms way once again. Just goes to show ya the people in Pennsylvania don’t use their heads when it comes to doing what is...

CLEVELAND Pittsburgh Steelers' four-point fourth-quarter lead was in the hands of its back-up running back Isaac Redman.
Those hands proved to be unreliable.
Redman fumbled on two consecutive Pittsburgh possessions to the Browns golden opportunities to take the lead.
As if the Browns wanted to display a microcosm of the 2011 season, their...
Though Phil Dawson's journey began as an undrafted free agent on the shores of the Erie rather than as an abandoned child on the banks of the Nile, he still feels a certain kinship with Moses.
The kicker is the only member of the Cleveland Browns who has been with the team since its reincarnation in 1999. He's a free agent this season and the team wants him back, but Dawson...
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin won't risk his free safety's health in Sunday's playoff game in Denver. But Tomlin did have some good news on the health front.
The playoffs were a certainty, and the chance of improving on their projected 5th seed was slim and out of their control. Because of that, no one was surprised when the Steelers took this opportunity to rest their starters and attempt to get healthy for a potential 1st round matchup with Denver. With stars Big Ben, Mendenhall, Wallace, Polamalu, Harrison, and Woodley playing limited...
Pittsburgh won a tough one in the snow in Cleveland, 13-9.
Ben Roethlisberger had 221 yards and no TDs. Rashard Mendenhall had 38 yards rushing before having to leave in the first half due to a knee injury. In relief of Mendenhall, Isaac Redman had 92 yards and a TD but also lost 2 fumbles. Antonio Brown led the way receiving with 90 yards on 6 catches, while Mike Wallace...
