Fantasy Football Champs:
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette expects the Steelers to start Jonathan Dwyer at running back again in Week 9 versus the Giants if his quad holds up. Dwyer won't practice Wednesday, however.Fantasy Spin:Dwyer has rushed for back-to-back 100-yard game and is averaging 5.2 ypc on 58 runs this season. Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) will go through individual workouts Wednesday and will likely be questionable for Week 9 and Isaac Redman (ankle) will practice all week. Redman may wind up being Pittsburgh's healthiest running back in Week 9, but he's not as good of a fantasy option as Dwyer or Mendenhall.

It may seem like a decade ago, but it really was just this past summer and entire preseason where Pittsburgh Steelers’ wideout Mike Wallace sat out in a contract dispute with the team. Wallace certainly didn’t do himself any favors with the fan base, but I think in general, many fans understood what Wallace was doing as other players in the league went down with injuries in the...
The Steelers have drafted offensive tackles in the second round of the past two NFL Drafts. A year ago they drafted Marcus Gilbert and the thought at the time was he would be molded into the future left tackle with Willie Colon at right tackle, but oh how things change. Willie Colon was lost for the ContinueThe post Adams and Gilbert Could be Steelers Bookends appeared first on SteelBlitz.
It’s funny how controversial this term, “dink and dunk” can be when it comes to football these days. It’s not that there is anything wrong with it, at least I don’t think so because the ultimate goal in professional sports is to win no matter what. If it’s short passing; fine, if it’s going deep … Continue reading »
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin met the media on Tuesday for his weekly press conference to talk about the upcoming game against the New York Giants, injuries, and more.
Below are the talking points from what Tomlin had to say along with the audio.
Tomlin called the performance against the Washington Redskins the most complete one so far this season, but obviously it...
The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Washington Redskins 27-12 Sunday at Heinz Field and below are my first half notes from the game with the second half notes to follow soon.
A nice start by Jonathan Dwyer as he turns a possible stuff into positive yardage. The fake bubble screen that resulted in an explosive play to Heath Miller was nicely designed and well executed. The first catch...
Big Ben Roethlisberger just plunking the referee in the head with a pass like it ain't no thing. Don't make a bad call against the Steelers or you know what you're up against. I just can't wait until he tries to pull that on Ed Hochuli and Ed tosses him in the torture rack until he taps out. Video of the pass below if you missed it.
P.S. Am I the...
There were some worries that the Steelers-Giants game to be played at MetLife Stadium in New York may be effected by Hurricane Sandy. However, the stadium was not affected by the Hurricane and the game is set to be played as scheduled. There could still be complications and there are a lot of factor ContinueThe post Steelers-Giants the Game Will Go On appeared first on SteelBlitz.

After 2 straight wins, the Steelers are back in the AFC playoff picture at 4-3 and that’s despite Troy Polamalu being out. When he’s in the lineup over the last 3 years, they allow about a touchdown less per game when he’s in there so it’s good news that they’ve been playing well without him. Ben Roethlisberger is quietly having an MVP caliber...

Pittsburgh Steeler wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders is stating that he will be meeting with the NFL office in regards to a leg cramp he developed in the huddle which saved the Steelers a timeout in a win over the Cincinnati Bengals. There is no word on the type of injury he will fake to get
The Pittsburgh Steelers resumed practice on Thursday as they prepare to take on the New York Giants Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
The Thursday injury report is now out and it shows that linebacker LaMarr Woodley (hamstring), linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring) and running back Baron Batch (shin) did not practice. The status of Woodley heading into the weekend now appears to...
As you can see in the above video, Fox announcer Sam Rosen introduced the Pittsburgh Steelers yesterday as the "Penguins" as they were running onto the field. The throwback uniforms are clearly ridiculous, so perhaps Rosen was just weirded out by them. I mean, I can't really blame him if he was. They are possibly the worst alternate uniforms I've ever seen in the...
The two historic franchises between the Giants and Steelers will square off this coming Sunday evening at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands
Both the Giants and Steelers have one of the top elite quarterbacks in the NFL in Eli Manning (Giants) and Ben Roethlisberger (Steelers).
Even though this isn't a rivalry game, but it should be one of the most exciting matchups this...
