Remember 2005 and 2006?
More people were using MySpace than Facebook, banks didn’t need bailouts and Bill Cowher was still the Pittsburgh Steelers coach.
The 2005 and 2006 NFL drafts were the Steelers’ last two under Cowher, and they continued to stock their roster with players who would contribute to Super Bowl teams.
Three months after winning Super Bowl XL, the Steelers drafted the MVP of their next Super Bowl victory. Cowher’s last draft, however, wasn’t exactly his best.

Heath Miller, TE: Miller earned Pro Bowl honors in 2009 and 2012. He had a career-high 76 receptions in 2009, and had 71 before tearing multiple knee ligaments in the second-to-last game of the 2012 season. Miller is third on the Steelers’ all-time list with 408 career receptions, behind only Hines Ward and John Stallworth. Miller’s 39 receiving touchdowns ties him with Louis Lipps for fifth all-time in franchise history. Miller made ...

Bill Cowher once had three straight non-playoff seasons yet retained his job as head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers and later won a Super Bowl. In six seasons as Cowher’s replacement, Mike Tomlin has made the playoffs four times and has advanced to two Super Bowls, winning one.
What Cowher and Tomlin have in common though are tough, ‘never-should-have-happened’ losses in...
The Pittsburgh Steelers offseason continues on and we too will continue on now with our breakdown of the free agents as we inch closer towards the start of free agency. Next up on the list of unrestricted free agents is veteran tight end Leonard Pope.
Player: Leonard Pope
Position: Tight End
Experience: 7 Years
Free Agent Status: Unrestricted
2012 Salary Cap Hit: $565,000
It was reported early on Friday that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver coach Scottie Montgomery has decided to return to Duke University to become their new offensive coordinator and immediately a good portion of the black and gold fanbase started suggesting that former wide receiver Hines Ward should be hired to replace him.
Yeah, that's not going to happen.
Now that the Super Bowl is behind us we can expect that the Pittsburgh Steelers will begin ramping up their offseason business transactions.
Currently the team has 51 players under contract for 2013. That number will need to grow to 90 by the time training camp rolls around. 7 or 8 of those players will be draft picks and a good 10 to 15 more will likely be undrafted free agents...
The Pittsburgh Steelers are up against the salary cap again this offseason and they will have to make a lot of tough roster decisions. Last offseason, the team cut ties with veterans Hines Ward, Aaron Smith, James Farrior, Bryant McFadden and others in order to get under the cap. This time around the Steelers are looking at the possibility of losing six starters from week one of...
Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel probably will go down as having one of the dopest beards in all of sports let alone beard history.
Keisel has allowed his beard to grow for years, but recently cut it off to be a part of the “Sheer Da Beard” promotion to benefit the cancer programs at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh at UPMC.
Keisel spoke about why he shaved and what the...

Now that the Super Bowl is behind us, and Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has won the game MVP award, the annual list making of the offseason has begun.
Former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb was recently asked to rank the top ten quarterbacks on NFL Total Access and he ranked Flacco fifth overall and three spots higher than Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger...
During last week’s Super Bowl, it was obvious that CBS had no idea how to handle the unexpected blackout that came just minutes after the halftime show. The analysts didn’t know how to break down what happened just minutes into the third quarter and sideline reporters Steve Tasker and Solomon Wilcots had no answers for why the blackout occurred. Bill Cowher even resorted to talking...
Even though we were almost a full week removed from the Super Bowl, Saturday Night Live could not let the blackout (and CBS's coverage) go unspoofed. We were treated to a fairly brilliant cold open during this past week's episode. Keenan Thompson as James Brown really steals the show here. It is a mix of trying to mask his own panic while trying to keep everyone else'...
