In addition to Trai Essex signing with the Indianapolis Colts today, former Steelers tackle Jonathan Scott signed with the Chicago Bears earlier on Monday.
Scott a former fifth round draft choice of the Detroit Lions back in 2006, started 14 regular season games over the last two years for the Steelers but was released by the team prior to training camp.
Scott latched back on with Lions at the start of training camp, but hurt his knee immediately after signing and was eventually placed on injured reserve until the Lions released him from the list a short time ago. Read more [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
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 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...

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.
I have already posted my notes from the first half of the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-19 loss Sunday night to the Denver Broncos and below are my second half notes.
Ben Roethlisberger throws behind Jonathan Dwyer on first play of the second half. Had it been caught it would of gone for good yardage.
... and there is our Willie Colon false start. Luckily Roethlisberger converts the...
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.
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.
Essex was signed on Monday after head coach Chuck Pagano revealed it would be at least another week before starting guard Joe Reitz would...
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...

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...
