Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu has practiced fully the last two days and appears to remain on track to play Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. Defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau did warn on Thursday, however, that just because the all-everything safety might be back, doesn't necessarily mean that he will be on the field every play after being out since Week 5 with a calf injury. "Well, I think it means a lot," said LeBeau, when asked what it means to him to get Polamalu back this week. "You know, his leadership and stability out there. And our guys have done a good job without him Read more [...]

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...

Steelers Special Teams Units Need To Backup Quarterback Friendly As Well

Assuming the Pittsburgh Steelers don't turn the ball over 8 times this coming Sunday, they still will have a tough chore in beating the Baltimore Ravens should quarterback Ben Roethlisberger not play. Hell, even if Roethlisberger does play it will be a tough chore, as it always is. Do the Steelers have a chance to win if Charlie Batch winds up starting? Sure they do, but even...

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

The Steelers are at risk of missing the playoffs.

The Steelers looked like one of the more balanced teams in the NFL a few weeks ago, now they may miss the playoffs. If anyone still doubts the importance of the QB position, look no further than the Steelers. This team can't do anything on offense since Big Ben went down. The running game is suffering, the Wideouts can't catch and the backups have been less than...

Ben Speaks of Injury; Here Come ‘Drama’ Comments

Yesterday I mentioned Pittsburgh Steelers’ Head Coach Mike Tomlin was in a no-win situation heading into the contest with the Baltimore Ravens this Sunday. I realized a long time ago that Steelers’ QB Ben Roethlisberger was in a similar situation regarding his health. Earlier today Roethlisberger spoke to the media before practice and talked about having some pain and discomfort...

NFL Rumors: 2012 Will Be Last Season For Rashard Mendenhall With Pittsburgh Steelers

Many people figured that going into the 2012 NFL season, it could be the final year we see Rashard Mendenhall in a Pittsburgh Steelers uniform. It had little to do with the fact that he was coming off of a major knee injury from the end of last season, but the team made little effort to lock him up to a long term deal even before the injury. With Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman in...

Roethlisberger out vs. Ravens

Ben Roethlisberger will not play Sunday in Baltimore, meaning Charlie Batch will make his second consecutive start at quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Ravens defense prepares for both Batch and Big Ben

(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By DAVID GINSBURG AP Sports Writer Less than two weeks ago, the Baltimore Ravens frustrated fleet-footed quarterback Byron Leftwich and defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers to take control of the AFC North.

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...
