Handicapping Steelers players for fantasy purposes has been tricky business lately. For instance, no one imagined that Charlie Batch would connect with four different receivers five times for nearly 300 yards passing last week. He was a stellar option in daily fantasy sports contests where he was available at an incredibly cheap salary relative to other quarterbacks.
In Week 14...
For most fantasy leagues Week 14 either means it’s playoff time or it’s the last week of the regular reason. Regardless, it’s extremely important...
Pittsburgh wide receiver Mike Wallace enjoyed having Ben Roethlisberger back under center Sunday against San Diego. Wallace caught seven passes for 112 yards and two touchdowns in the loss.Fantasy Spin:Wallace saw 11 targets, his most since Week 7, and had 100 yards receiving for the first time since Week 3. He's a must-start as long as Big Ben is calling the shots.
Even with Ben Roethlisberger back from injury, the Pittsburgh Steelers were no match for the San Diego Chargers yesterday, what with their “Holy crap, we should play better so we aren’t all fired or traded” realization and effort. The Chargers defeated the Steelers 34-24 in a game that was much worse than the score indicates, with Philip Rivers tossing three touchdowns and...
San Diego Chargers (4-8) vs Pittsburgh Steelers (7-5)
Heinz Field will be rocking on Sunday when Ben Roethlisberger makes his return to the Steelers after a 3 game absence due to a rib injury, as the Steelers welcome the Chargers to town. The Chargers are in the midst of a bad year, with really nothing left to play for but pride. The President already stated that both GM and Coach...
At least Ben Roethlisberger is back and producing for a team that's very much alive for a playoff berth in the AFC after yet another loss.
The Steelers continue to receive gift after gift from the rest of the NFL. Even the loss today at Heinz Field, 34-24 to the lowly Chargers still leaves them in control of the 6th seed in the playoffs by virtue of the Ravens and Bengals both losing. I’ve said it many times this year, if the Steelers have 9 lives they are burning through at a rapid pace. As Mike Tomlin said in his...

The Pittsburgh Steelers now have quarterback Ben Roethlisberger back somewhat healthy and with cornerback Ike Taylor now sidelined indefinitely with an ankle injury, the team decided to waive quarterback Brian Hoyer on Saturday and promote cornerback Josh Victorian from the practice squad to take his spot on the 53 man roster.
Hoyer served as the backup quarterback for the last...
Season 3, Episode 52 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I get right into talking about the injuries of the Pittsburgh Steelers heading into their game Sunday against the San Diego Chargers and that of course includes talking about quarterback Ben Roethlisberger being back this week. Roethlisberger will wear a special designed vest and shoulder pads to help protect...
The Pittsburgh Steelers have gotten pretty good at beating the NFL's best.
They've nearly perfected losing to the worst.
And while San Diego is more underachieving than utterly horrific, the Chargers' 34-24 win over the Steelers on Sunday continued a perplexing trend for a team that considers itself among the elite.
Pittsburgh (7-6) has won on the road at Baltimore...
Everyone in Steeler Nation hold up four fingers, because it’s the fourth quarter.
The fourth quarter of the 2012 NFL season, that is.
There are 12 games down, four to go. The Pittsburgh Steelers are 7-5 and have the inside track on an AFC wild-card berth.
Let’s recognize those who have helped the Steelers get to this point and hand out awards for the first three quarters of the...
