Found January 04, 2013 on Waiting For Next Year:
The NFL unveiled its fines for hits from Week 17 today, and surprisingly, only one player from the Browns-Steelers game received a penalty. And of course, it was a Brown. Cleveland defensive tackle Phil Taylor was the one in trouble, because of his unnecessary roughness forearm that concussed Pittsburgh offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum away from the play. He was fined $7,875 for the play. It’s the second fine of his career, along with his $7,500 penalty for hitting Chad Henne in a Sept. 25, 2011 game. Notably, there were no other fines assessed to other players, such as Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison, offensive lineman Doug Legursky, or Browns defensive tackles Billy Winn and Ahtyba Rubin. The game turned ugly after Legursky dived into the legs of Craig Robertson after a second-quarter play. [Related: A new coaching staff could mean a change to a 3-4 defense. Are the Browns ready for that?]

Cleveland Browns 2013 Needs

The Browns have played in just 1 playoff game since 1994 (they were deactivated for 3 years in that stretch, but still).

Steelers New Offensive Line Coach may be Most Important Decision of the 2013 Off-Season

The Pittsburgh Steelers watched for years as Ben Roethlisberger was sacked again and again due to a poor offensive line in front of him. In a four year stretch from 2006 to 2009 Roethlisberger was sacked at least 46 times per season and even hit 50 sacks in 2009. Following that dreadful 2009 season the Steelers knew it was time to protect their franchise quarterback. In the subsequent...

Steelers: Mike Wallace Unlikely to Return to Pittsburgh, Question is: Keep Plaxico Burress or Not?

Wallace will officially become a free agent in March and is expected to look for a large contract in the open market.

Tough times ahead for the Pittsburgh Steelers offseason in 2013

The 2012 season for the Pittsburgh Steelers was tough mentally and physically for the players, coaches and the fans.

The Steelers with all of their Super Bowl pieces starting to show their age like James Harrison...

Could the Steelers Place the Franchise/Transition Tag on Mike Wallace or Keenan Lewis?

The Steelers will have the franchise tag and transition tag at their disposal once again this off-season, but once again it is questionable as to whether they will choose to use either one. Of their free agents only two are deserving of the type of money that comes with either tag: corner Keenan Lewis and wide receiver Mike Wallace. Wallace will be an unrestricted free agent this...

The Pittsburgh Steelers Should Strongly Consider Going Offensive Line In The First Round Again In 2013

The Pittsburgh Steelers took highly rated guard David DeCastro out of Stanford with the 24th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. DeCastro was the number one rated guard in the draft and no one thought that he would drop that far to the Steelers.
