He’s hurt all the time. He hasn’t had a fourth quarter comeback in forever. It was his fault Mike Wallace left because he couldn’t throw it deep enough for him. He makes the wrong audibles. He was too ‘chummy’ with Bruce Arians and he is clearly the reason the team lost Super Bowl XLV and went 8-8 last year. Ben Roethlisberger is a lot of things, but he isn’t Atlas. He is a human being after all and after being hailed as the savior of the beloved Pittsburgh Steelers’ franchise in 2004, he’s delivered on the field more often than not but yet his issues off the field still resonate with people which I find sad. Some of what I mentioned in the opening is true. Roethlisberger cost his team at the end of games in Dallas and at home against Cincinnati with late game interceptions.

Mike Wallace Thinks Ryan Tannehill Can Throw Farther Than Ben Roethlisberger

New Miami Dolphins wide receiver, and former Pittsburgh Steeler, Mike Wallace believes that his new quarterback will be “great.” Wallace will have to hope that Tannehill becomes a great quarterback because he just left a great quarterback in Ben Roethlisberger to play with him. Although, let’s be honest, Wallace’s move to Miami had more to do with money than the quarterback...

Don’t Bet On Steelers DE Cameron Heyward Opening The Season As A Starter

With Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward now entering his third season in the league, many believe that he will open the 2013 season as a starter, but I wouldn't be so quick to bet on that happening. Even though Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette posted this week in his online chat that he's been told Heyward is already better than starting left defensive...

Top 5 Multiple-Pick Rounds in Pittsburgh Steelers Drafts Since 2000 (Part 1 of 2)

If the 2013 Pittsburgh Steelers draft was made into a movie, the dramatic climax would come in the fourth round. The Steelers traded next year’s third-round pick for the Browns’ fourth-round pick, No. 111, to draft flashy safety Shamarko Thomas. Then, four picks later, the Steelers dropped some jaws by drafting Landry Jones. Jones is the first quarterback the Steelers have drafted...

Steelers LB Larry Foote Says There’s A Whole Different Mindset To The Off-season

Larry Foote Upset About Pittsburgh Steelers 2012 Season and James Harrison’s Choice to Join the Cincinnati Bengals

Pittsburgh Steelers inside linebacker Larry Foote is making his feelings well known. First, he’s not too happy about the Steelers disappointing 8-8 season in 2012. It’s unlikely that anyone would/could be happy about a season that ended as poorly as the Steelers season did last year, but as one of the leaders on the defense Foote will have to lead the team to a turnaround in...

Steelers likely won’t re-sign Casey Hampton

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette doesn’t believe the Steelers would be interested in resigning free agent nose tackle Casey Hampton even if he’s not ready to retire yet. Hampton will be turning 36 years-old in early September, it doesn’t make sense for the Steelers to bring him back.  It’s time to reload and move on.  They’ll be just fine without him.   Need...

Looking Back At The Great Season Had By Steelers TE Heath Miller In 2012

2012 was a phenomenal year for Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Heath Miller, who registered 71 catches for 816 yards and 8 touchdowns, but when you go even deeper into his stats, you will find that the aforementioned stat line still doesn't do his Pro Bowl season justice, nor does it equate to him being ranked the 97th overall player on the Top 100 Players of 2013 list. For...

Cameron Heyward May Start at Defensive End for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2013

When the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Cameron Heyward in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft they had every intention of turning him into an eventual replacement for Brett Keisel and starter.
