If there’s one thing you set your clock to every NFL season, it’s the Steelers being at the forefront of some type of controversy with the league. Usually it’s the defense and one of the more common names that comes to mind is safety Ryan Clark. It’s not that Clark goes looking for trouble (at least not all the time) but it seems to find him. This past weekend he stirred...

Pittsburgh halfback Isaac Redman had his best game of the season Sunday against the Giants.Fantasy Spin:With Rashard Mendenhall and Jonathan Dwyer both on the sidelines with injuries, Redman was able to explode for 147 yards on 26 carries. His go-ahead touchdown with four minutes remaining gave the Steelers their fifth win of the season.
I know most Giants fans are dealing with bigger issues than football right now, but there is still a good BC story going on at the Meadowlands today.
