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 wasn't perfect. Tomlin said the team played 60 minutes in all three phases of the game.
Tomlin updated the injury situation heading into the week and you can read that recap here.

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...
One of the great things about the NFL is how things change from week to week. It wasn’t that long ago that we were wondering if the Steelers could win back to back games at all this season and now they’ve accomplished that. The AFC North division is clearly up for grabs, as no team has asserted itself any longer. Injuries have played a part in that certainly but it’s also just...
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.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was not one bit happy with the taunting penalty Antonio Brown received Sunday and he addressed the matter with the guilty party and the team as a whole.
I not only spoke to Antonio, but I spoke to our team about it, Tomlin said today at his weekly press conference. Briefly, simply what I said is that it was not respectable.
Brown, a wide receiver...
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 »
The Pittsburgh Steelers are playing so well at the moment, even Mike Tomlin is getting optimistic.
The typically gruff coach allowed his team is heading in the right direction after a relatively easy 27-12 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday. The Steelers held explosive rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III in check and limited the NFL's top rushing team to a season-low...

When Mike Adams was drafted, he might not had been the brightest player, but he was definitely one of the biggest. The Steelers took him in the draft, and a good thing they did. With the problems with the line, they might have struck gold with Adams. Per Profootballfocus.com, Mike Adams has had a very strong last two games.
Much like the right side of the Redskins’ line,...
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.
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...
The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Washington Redskins 27-12 Sunday at Heinz Field and are now 4-3 on the season. Below are the players, or group of players, that I thought had winning performances in the game and 3 more players that deserve a little slap on the wrist.
Ben Roethlisberger - Roethlisberger was surgical-like from the very beginning of the game on his way to a 24-of-33...
The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Washington Redskins 27-12 Sunday at Heinz Field and below are my second half notes from the game. Here are my first half notes if you missed them.
Cortez Allen makes the tackle on the opening kickoff of the second half.
Robert Griffin III hits tight end Niles Paul on a deep crosser between the Steelers linebackers and the defensive backs off...
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
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...
