The Pittsburgh Steelers have a long tradition of trotting out workhorse lead running backs who lead them to the Super Bowl. From the days of Franco Harris, Jerome Bettis, Willie Parker and countless others, the Steelers have enjoyed great success on the ground. They though that had found it again with Rashard Mendenhall, although his season ending injury last year may have opened up their eyes to a new back who could lead them into the future in the run game. That player would be Jonathan Dwyer. I am not saying that Pittsburgh should give up on Mendenhall. He is a talented running back with a nose for the end zone.

Roethlisberger reaping benefits of the “dink and dunk” Steelers offense

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 »

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...
