Found October 29, 2012 on Juan Elway:
I’m the new Bus Juan… I love this kid and the way he runs fits what the Steelers like to do.  He runs downhill hard breaking arm tackles left and right.  I wish he could of got his fat body in the endzone yesterday as he was given some shots in close, but his back to back 100 yard efforts have been impressive.  Mike Tomlin: “He’s answered the call and taken advantage of the opportunity and that’s what we expect from our young people,” Tomlin declared after Dwyer ran for 107 yards on 17 carries in the win over Washington. As for Redman and Mendenhall? “I’ll see what they look like next week,” Tomlin said. “You’re not getting it today.” “The Steelers gave the ball to Dwyer because they didn’t have a choice. Their top two running backs, Mendenhall (Achilles) and Redman (ankle), have been sidelined the past two weeks. Now, after what Dwyer has shown the past two games, the Steelers don’t have a decision at starting running back. They can’t take the ball back from Dwyer. He’s breaking long gains. He’s delivering the key run at the end of games. You have to keep feeding the ball to Dwyer until his play tells you otherwise.” Mendy is only averaging 3.9 YPC and Redman a paltry 2.5 YPC, while Dwyer has a 5.2 YPC, so it entirely possible Dwyer retains the job.  If anything, do not drop Dwyer and if he is somehow still available in your league, grab him now.

Wallace’s Post-Game Comments Just the Beginning?

It may seem like a decade ago, but it really was just this past summer and entire preseason where Pittsburgh Steelers’ wideout Mike Wallace sat out in a contract dispute with the team. Wallace certainly didn’t do himself any favors with the fan base, but I think in general, many fans understood what Wallace was doing as other players in the league went down with injuries in the...

Adams and Gilbert Could be Steelers Bookends

The Steelers have drafted offensive tackles in the second round of the past two NFL Drafts. A year ago they drafted Marcus Gilbert and the thought at the time was he would be molded into the future left tackle with Willie Colon at right tackle, but oh how things change. Willie Colon was lost for the ContinueThe post Adams and Gilbert Could be Steelers Bookends appeared first on SteelBlitz.

Roethlisberger reaping benefits of the “dink and dunk” Steelers offense

It’s funny how controversial this term, “dink and dunk” can be when it comes to football these days. It’s not that there is anything wrong with it, at least I don’t think so because the ultimate goal in professional sports is to win no matter what. If it’s short passing; fine, if it’s going deep … Continue reading »

Ben Roethlisberger Hits Ref in the Head With Pass (Video)

Big Ben Roethlisberger just plunking the referee in the head with a pass like it ain't no thing.  Don't make a bad call against the Steelers or you know what you're up against.  I just can't wait until he tries to pull that on Ed Hochuli and Ed tosses him in the torture rack until he taps out.   Video of the pass below if you missed it. P.S. Am I the...

Steelers Versus Redskins Game Rewind – First Half Notes

The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Washington Redskins 27-12 Sunday at Heinz Field and below are my first half notes from the game with the second half notes to follow soon. A nice start by Jonathan Dwyer as he turns a possible stuff into positive yardage. The fake bubble screen that resulted in an explosive play to Heath Miller was nicely designed and well executed. The first catch...

Below are the players, or group of players, that I thought had winning performances in the game and 3 more players that deserve a little slap on the wrist.

Steelers wear throwback uniforms in win over Redskins

The Pittsburgh Steelers wore throw back uniforms in Sunday’s win over the Washington Redskins.
