The Penalty Flag:
The Real Reason Pittsburgh Won’t Win Over Britain
Despite the seemingly packed stadium in London Sunday, this year’s NFL exhibition probably didn’t win Pittsburgh many fans. This is sad from my point of view, as I am both a lifelong Steelers fan and a one-time U.K. resident. But, fact is, the Steelers just don’t look that impressive from a British standpoint. And this isn’t just because they lost their over-the-pond debut to the Vikings... Read more

I’ve watched more replays of the Steelers’ loss in Minnesota than I really care to admit. Apparently I’m a glutton for punishment and like carnage because I can’t look away.
While the missed tackles and blown assignments are one thing, I just can’t stop watching Mike Adams attempt to block Jared Allen.
Allen is and has been an excellent pass rusher in this league for a...
If you haven’t heard already, the Pittsburgh Steelers have traded a conditional late-round pick to Arizona for former first round pick offensive tackle Levi Brown. Mike Tomlin made no bones about the fact that Mike Adams was not getting the job down over the last three weeks and thus the rare in-season move was made.
If there is any good news from this move it’s this; According...
Today the Pittsburgh Steelers made a move to try to improve their offensive line. Today the Steelers agreed to trade for Levi Brown of the Arizona Cardinals. @ProFootballTalk Steelers and Cardinals have agreed to a trade that will send LT Levi Brown. Done deal, pending physical. This is a huge trade, and should help the […]
Pittsburgh Steelers president Art Rooney II issued a short statement Tuesday to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette following the team's 0-4 start.
In a football season you can't worry about your last game, or your last four games. The team has to focus on the next opponent and do what is necessary to improve each week of the season. If we continue to work hard and play with...
Ben Roethlisberger says the Pittsburgh Steelers are the worst team in the league only because they’re 0-4. “I was talking record-wise,” said Roethlisberger to the team’s website when asked about the comment he made after Sunday’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings. “If you look record-
Following the loss to the Chicago Bears, head coach Mike Tomlin said that he would turn over stones in an effort to fix the tackle situation. Judging by the play of left tackle Mike Adams Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, he better become a geology expert during the bye week.
Through the first four games of the 2013 season, Adams has shown to be one of, if not the worst left...
According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said Tuesday he suffered a subluxation to the index finger on his throwing hand Sunday in the loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Season 4, Episode 28 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I spend most of this show talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers trading for tackle Levi Brown Wednesday morning. This includes contract and salary cap talk in addition what it means for Mike Adams.
The Steelers are 0-4 and obviously had to do something. We talk about compensation that may or may not be...

The Pittsburgh Steelers have now hit a new low.
The franchise that was the standard-bearer for excellence in the NFL is off to its worst start since 1968 after the Steelers fell to 0-4 yesterday.
Pittsburgh gets a bye after having traveled to London to lose to the Vikings, and it’s much-needed. Ben Roethlisberger is disgusted by the play he’s seeing, and pulled no punches...
Markus Wheaton, the speedster from Oregon State, was brought in (more or less) to replace the speed lost by Mike Wallace. But Markus has only been on the field for 20 snaps this year. This report from Curt Popejoy over at Bleacher Report is a nice little cocktail of X's and O's and commentary on the matter.
While everyone from Mike Tomlin to us has said this is no...
In order to make room for tackle Levi Brown on the roster, the Pittsburgh Steelers waived cornerback Isaiah Green on Wednesday.
Brown was acquired Wednesday via trade with the Arizona Cardinals for a conditional draft pick.
Green was signed to the Steelers active roster from the practice squad on Sept 17 and has been inactive for each of the last two games.
Assuming he clears waivers...
The longest bye week in Steelers history is upon us, and the questions and blame are being tossed around from all sides. And while the team maintains a winning attitude, we can't help but worry about that offensive line, easily the most glaring flaw on this team. Well today something interesting went down that could affect the Steelers.

Is it just me, or is it just about time for us all to take a break from this nightmarish beginning of the 2013 season?
The Bye week could hardly have come at a more opportune time for the Pittsburgh Steelers as they find themselves reeling after coming off their fourth consecutive loss in as many games to begin the year. Not in the sense that it will be enough to...
Hey, Coach Tomlin! I like you man. I really, really do but I have to ask you something. Why are you getting pissed off now?
The fire you showed in the post-game comments was the fire we should have seen after week one.
Instead, you waited for the fourth consecutive loss to blow your top? Did you not notice the problems and urgency that was needed after the loss to Tennessee?
