When the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Jonathan Dwyer in the 6th round of the 2010 NFL Draft, I thought he could end up being one of the steals of that draft. Coming out of Georgia Tech, Dwyer looked like a first round talent until he had a less than stellar Scouting Combine and questions popped up about his desire and conditioning. Those questions followed Dwyer into his first training camp with the Steelers and he did not really show much until he ran for 175 yards in the team’s final two preseason games. After a virtually non-existent rookie season, which is not uncommon for rookies with the Steelers, there was a lot of anticipation to see how Dwyer would do in his second year. Dwyer then ensued to show up to camp out of shape again and honestly I think he would have been cut if Baron Batch did not blow out his knee. Batch was put on I.R. however, and after injuries knocked out Rashard Mendenhall and Isaac Redman was ineffective, Dwyer got his chance to play versus the Tennessee T...

Keenan Lewis Couldn’t Have Picked A Better Year For Himself To Turn The Proverbial Corner

Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Keenan Lewis is one player that I couldn't have been more wrong about this season. Lewis proclaimed back in May that this would be a big year for him and right now his prediction is looking spot on with 5 games remaining in the regular season. Heading into Week 13 Lewis has recorded 53 total tackles and is tied for the league lead in passes defended...

If Charlie Batch struggles, would Tomlin really go to Brian Hoyer?

Now that Ben Roethlisberger has been officially ruled out, Charlie Batch is the starter and Brian Hoyer is the backup. My how times have changed for our Steelers this season. Down to their 3rd string signal caller and a backup who wasn't even on an NFL roster until two weeks ago. So what if Batch plays and tosses a couple bad interceptions in the first quarter, or even the first...

He says there were no such deals. Foote, a Detroit...

Earlier today Roethlisberger spoke to the media before practice and talked about having some pain and discomfort...

The Pittsburgh Steelers Will Face The Ravens Without Ben Roethlisberger Sunday Now What?

Ben Roethlisberger will not play in the Baltimore Ravens game. The Steelers reported that Ben will not play.

Steelers Versus Ravens: Prediction & 7 Keys To The Game – Week 13

The Pittsburgh Steelers look to prevent a three game losing streak Sunday against the 9-2 Baltimore Ravens and it will not be an easy task on the road.

Prediction Saturday: Ravens go for 16th straight home win

The Ravens will meet the Steelers for the second time in three weeks. The Steelers will be without high profile players Ben Roethlisberger and LaMarr Woodley, but get back safety Troy Polamalu. Two weeks ago, the Ravens defeated Pittsburgh 13-10 at Heinz Field. I expect the same result, but a different score this time. The Ravens haven’t lost a home game since Week 13 of the 2010...
