Can Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers win the AFC North in route to the Super Bowl? Here are some predictions for the Steelers 2012 NFL season.
BEST OF MAXIM
GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN
Von Miller got two sacks on Ben Roethlisberger in the final possession of Denver’s 31-19 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday night, and he received plenty of attention for his sack celebrations.
As seen in the images above, the second-year linebacker dropped down on one knee and “Tebowed,” possibly as a nod to his former teammate, Tim Tebow, who’s currently with the Jets, after...
Two key Steelers players -- linebacker James Harrison and running back Rashard Mendenhall -- were both on the inactive list for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Harrison had minor surgery on his left knee last month, and was hoping to be ready for the opener. However, he missed practice Saturday at which point he was listed as doubtful. Harrison had nine sacks last season...
The Pittsburgh Steelers will start running back Isaac Redman Sunday night against the Denver Broncos as Rashard Mendenhall is still not fully recovered from a torn ACL.
Redman has rushed for 726 yards in two seasons.
The Steelers do not expect Mendenhall to be ready for the entire month of September, and are not counting on him to play this season.
Mendenhall is entering...

It’s been a long, long time.
Eight seasons to be exact.
The year was 2003, and it was the last time the Pittsburgh Steelers finished a regular season with a losing record. That season, with the fragile Tommy Maddox at the helm, the Steelers limped into the offseason with a 6-10 record. Since that time, the Steelers have enjoyed an era of excellence marked...
Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer was the team's leading rusher in Week 1, earning 23 more yards than Isaac Redman on two less carries.Fantasy Spin:Dwyer averaged 4.8 ypc to Redman's 1.8, finishing with 43 yards on nine carries. Redman had 20 yards on 11 carries, and both players had two catches. Neither is much of a fantasy option.
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Pittsburgh Steelers and wide receiver Mike Wallace still haven’t made any progress towards getting a new contract done.
We’ll see if anything else gets done before games kickoff on Sunday. No progress b/n Mike Wallace and Steelers, so that one’s not happening

We have already talked about the lack of success that the Pittsburgh Steelers offense had on first downs against the Denver Broncos earlier today. Now we will flip it over to see the job that the defense did against Peyton Mannning Sunday night on first downs.
One of the key areas needed to beat Manning is to keep him behind the chains and as predictable as possible when it comes...
If you drafted Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace on your fantasy football team this season, you most likely did so with the intent for him to be your No. 1 or No. 2 receiver. But while you may be hoping that playing for a contract will motivate Wallace to have a career year, it may not go as you had planned.
We saw last season that Philadelphia Eagles WR Desean Jackson...
TheRedZone.org pointed out a big mistake the replacement officials made in Sunday night’s Steelers – Broncos match up.
No matter how much the NFL tries to mask it, the replacement officials continue to struggle.
Another case in point from last night’s Broncos 31-19 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Peyton Manning and the Broncos scored a touchdown late in the fourth...

The season, thankfully, is finally here, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are completing their preparations for their first opponent in the Denver Broncos. What better way to start the season than in prime time on Sunday Night Football against the team that bounced them from the playoffs this past year.
So how will this game shake out?
The Steelers Will Win This...

I guess that there are enough precedents now that we should just assume that anytime an iconic quarterback leaves his original team, a band of his supplicating followers will go along with him. There were the Favretards, who switched allegiances to a DIVISION RIVAL because Brett Favre went to play for them. My father was a Montanatard (Montard), a lifetime 49ers fan who became a...
Just when you thought that Tebowing had finally reached its conclusion, Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller decided to bring it back.
Watch as Von brings down Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and pays the ultimate tribute to his former teammate by dropping down to one knee:
