Steelers' Harrison out for Sunday game

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.

The Agony Of A Losing Season: Steelers Solid Since 2003

By Jeremy Hritz 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...

Mike Adams disappoints in Steelers debut

The Pittsburgh Steelers gambled on Mike Adams in the 2nd round of the draft, taking a chance on a guy who never lived up to lofty expectations at Ohio State and who failed a drug test at the combine. So far, it’s a gamble that hasn’t paid off. Adams was forced into action when Marcus Gilbert went down with an injury early in the Steelers Sunday night loss in Denvar. One the third...

Indianapolis Colts Sign Super Bowl Winning Offensive Lineman

  Bruce Arians and Trai Essex won two Super Bowls together in Pittsburgh. Now Arians hopes the veteran offensive lineman can bring his versatility to Indianapolis and help plug some holes there that threaten the safety of his star quarterback.

Replacement officials mess up two-minute warning rule

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...

Steelers-Broncos Live Blog – First Half

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...

Colts Release OL Person and Shipley, Sign Trai Essex; More Moves to Come

The Colts continue with a trend with Ryan Grigson as GM: if he doesn't like something, he doesn't wait to do something about it.  After just one game into the season, Grigson has already decided that center A.Q. Shipley and tackle Mike Person are not worth roster spots on the Colts. Shipley made the roster as an effect of being the only backup center on the roster, but...
