It was reported on Wednesday that Harrison left the Steelers practice facility prior to the team working on Wednesday after his knee did respond well...
It might be a bit of a rush job to judge a team after just three weeks of action, but in a 16 game season, it’s somewhat justifiable. The Steelers stand 1-2 on the season, losing a tough one on the road to the Broncos, handling the Jets rather easily at home and then dropping a disappointing game on the road against the Raiders. Here are four things we know about the Steelers so...
The Steelers are off to their worst start running the ball on offense in 62 years. A lot of the blame has been put on the Steelers being without starting running back Rashard Mendenhall, but the Steelers had him for 15 and a half games in 2011 and struggled to run the ball then too. In fact when the ContinueThe post Willie Colon Blames Himself for Poor Running Game appeared first on SteelBlitz.
After the Oakland Raiders victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, they will try to make it two in a row against AFC West rival Denver Broncos. That means preparing for soon to be Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning.
“He’s Peyton Manning; he’s a Hall of Fame quarterback,” Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said. “There’s no way that we’re going to in any...
The Oakland Raiders ruled wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey out of Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos.

He hadn't practiced at all this week but had been listed as doubtful to play this week until the Raiders...
Wednesday was the season premier of South Park and the long-running cartoon started the season off by mocking the NFL and their stance on concussions, as well as the recent replacement referee debacle.
The episode centers around Randy Marsh, who’s frustrated about the excessive safety measures in football. Marsh offers up sarcastic solutions to the problem such as players playing...
The Oakland Raiders have signed defensive end Andre Carter. Carter is an 11 year veteran that has spent time with the San Francisco 49ers, Washington Redskins, and New England Patriots. In order to make room on the roster, the Raiders waived 2011 NFL Draft third round pick Joe Barksdale.
“Like I said, it was a long battle,” Carter said of his quad injury. “It was such...
Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Weslye Saunders will not be available for the week 5 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The former undrafted free agent posted Thursday on Twitter that he still has to sit out one more game to satisfy his four game suspension for testing positive for the banned drug Adderall.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Oakland Raiders have ruled out both wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey and tight end Richard Gordon.
No one should be surprised that Heyward-Bey has been ruled out. He didn’t practice all week after taking a brutal hit during last week’s win over the Steelers.
Raiders starting wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey missed practice again Thursday, four days after suffering a concussion and strained neck against Pittsburgh.
He's here today, Raiders coach Dennis Allen said. He's going to be fine. He's still got to go through the protocol of the concussions, and he hasn't passed those tests yet.
If Heyward-Bey misses...

How many Pittsburgh Steelers fans out there expected to be 1-2 going into the bye? Well, maybe a hard shot of clarity is exactly what this unit needs to come out of the bye week and re-establish themselves as the AFC North powerhouse that they are. The offense has definitely been stronger than the defense so far, but neither has been without flaws. The rushing...

After three weeks of play, the AFC West still looks like any of the four teams could end up winning it. To be honest, nobody has looked good for four quarters. There have been bright spots (especially last week for the Oakland Raiders), but not many. Right now, I wouldn’t argue with anyone who said [...]
