Found October 26, 2012 on Juan Elway:
I’m the new Bus Juan… Jonathan Dwyer started last week and was impressive, going for 17/122 for 7.3 YPC.  It was mentioned on the telecast that he reminds Big Ben of Jerome Bettis as he is a big guy with good feet.  This week Mendy is OUT again and Sir Issac Redman will be limited at best.  Dwyer should get the bulk of the carries and should be able to run on a Redskins that could be without their heart and soul, London Fletcher. AFC North blogger Jamison Hensley says the following about Sunday’s tilt: “The Steelers return home where they’ve been a different team this season. The Steelers will start off quick (Ben Roethlisberger has a 119.6 passer rating in the first quarter), which will put pressure on Robert Griffin III. This could be the game where RG3 looks like a rookie. The Steelers won last Sunday because of running back Jonathan Dwyer. But they probably won’t need him this game. Pittsburgh’s downfield passing attack will get on track against the Redskins, who have allowed six 300-yard passers in seven games. Washington has only held two teams under 26 points this season.” The Redskins are on pace to the worst team in the history of the NFL against the forward pass, so Big Ben should have a field day here.  Dwyer though could be a better than you think option as he could get more than one opportunity to fall into the endzone.

Heath Miller for President! Why Not?

Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger mentioned this week that he thinks Steelers’ tight end Heath Miller should be running for president. I couldn’t agree more and here’s why; 1. Miller could easily handle defense issues. Is there another tight end in the league that plows through defenders the way that Heath does? Can you imagine Iran threatening Heath Miller...

Steelers' Colon settling into guard role

Willie Colon emerged from Sunday's win in Cincinnati down more than one of his signature dreadlocks. At least he was unofficially awarded a takedown for a post-whistle body slam of Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict. It was Colon's kind of game, the perfect coming-out party for the Steelers offensive lineman continuing to settle in to his new position at guard. ''...

Heath Miller an unsung hero in Pittsburgh

When talk around the league about the elite tight ends the names Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, Vernon Davis, and Antonio Gates and soon to be Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez always come up.
