Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison has finally adapted to the NFL’s rules on hitting defenseless players below the head and neck area. “I’ve really lowered my target area to where it’s down around the knees,” Harrison said Friday on “Mike & Mike in the Morning.” “Situations come along where you could tackle the guy high. I don’t do that anymore. I tackle the guy low.” It’s nice to see that Harrison has finally gotten the message.  It looked like at one point he wasn’t going to change.  I guess if the NFL keep taking your money, you’re forced to listen sooner or later.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";

Steelers Offense Could Change Again if Haley Leaves After 2012

Former Steelers offensive coordinator, and current Cardinals head coach, Ken Whisenhunt is rumored to be on the hot seat in Arizona. If the Cardinals fire Whisenhunt they are expected to, at least, take a look at current Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley. Haley was the offensive coordinator in Arizona from 2007-2008. Hypothetically speaking if the Cardinals did hire Haley...

The Steelers have to win this Division Match-up. Week 16 Preview.

Steelers Injury Report: Keenan Lewis Sits Out On Thursday

The Pittsburgh Steelers were back on the practice field again on Thursday as they continue to prepare for their must-win game Sunday at Heinz Field against the Cincinnati Bengals and the second injury report for the week is now out.

Now is the Time for Steelers’ Veterans

I’ve seen many tweets and comments regarding how this week starts the ‘playoffs’ for the Pittsburgh Steelers. I don’t view it that way. This team has never been guaranteed a playoff spot this season and my argument is that the playoffs actually started with a ‘must-win’ game in Baltimore. The Steelers, behind Charlie Batch, won that game but have proceeded to lose the...

Steelers Need A Better Defensive Performance From Their Offense In Order To Make Playoffs

It is no secret that the Pittsburgh Steelers defense has struggled for a second consecutive season at getting turnovers and sacks. Those of course are two pretty big elements in winning football games, but outside of those glaring deficiencies the unit has not been awful. Through the first 14 games of the 2012 regular season the Steelers defense ranks first in yards allowed per...

James Harrison Says He’ll Go After Knees With Ban of Helmet-to-Helmet Hits

It’s no secret that many players in the NFL are upset over the enforcement of the rule against helmet-to-helmet contact. The argument is typically that it’s too difficult to adjust oneself in the midst of throwing a hit, and it isn’t a realistic target to eliminate such hits from the game. Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison feels the same way — and might have a...

Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers: Week 16 NFL Pick

Cincinnati Bengals (8-6) at Pittsburgh Steelers (7-7) Apparently the roof is falling in Pittsburgh. They’ve gone from favored by 4.5 to favored by 3 (passing two key numbers) and the public is still on Cincinnati. Why? Because they lost in overtime in Dallas in a game that was meaningless for them because they still control their own destiny? Because they lost another game as non...
