The return of Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Heath Miller to the lineup Sunday night resulted in a huge reduction in playing time for second-year tight end David Paulson and it's likely to get even lower now moving forward. Paulson struggled quite a bit in the blocking department in the first two games of the season and now he will be relegated to mostly special teams work moving forward. The return of Miller also resulted in more playing time for tight end/fullback David Johnson, who now appears to be fully recovered from the knee injury that he suffered last year during the preseason. Johnson even figured into the passing game Sunday night in the loss to the Chicago Bears as he caught two passes for 51 yards. "I like some of the things he's doing both in the running game and in the passing game," Tomlin said Tuesday of Johnson during his press conference. "Much like Heath Miller, he's working his way back from an ACL and I see a dramatic improvement in hi...

It’s time for the Steelers to fire Todd Haley

The Pittsburgh Steelers are a mess, but mostly on offense and that’s why they must fire Todd Haley. Now I will admit I’ve never liked Todd Haley as an offensive coordinator or a head coach, and I don’t take much satisfaction in calling for any person to lose their job, but this is a business. And so far Todd Haley has taken what Bruce Arians’ left and turned it into one...

Steelers need hard core ground game to return

The Pittsburgh Steelers, who take on the Vikings this coming Sunday in England, have always been known for their hard core nature. It has always been a hard nose running game and then a “Steel Curtain” on defense. These were what they used to win all of those Super Bowls in the 70’s. They have also won two Super Bowls recently on the shoulders of their quarterback Ben Roethlisberger...

Steelers fans want change, but is it realistic?

So you’re a Steelers fan, and as a fan you are obviously not happy with the team’s 0-3 start this season. Who can blame you? I challenge anybody to say they are actually ok with what has transpired so far through the first 3 weeks of the season. Even if you pull out the, “we have to develop younger players to get better” card, you still know that right now those younger players...
