The Offensive Line for the Steelers was not the sole reason they lost to the Denver Broncos 31-19 on Sunday night, there was plenty of blame to go around on both sides of the ball. Every year though we have this conversation about our Steelers, the offensive line this, the offensive line that, it’s well beyond the “getting old” stage and seems to be bordering on some vendetta that that football gods have against Pittsburgh.
If you are Mike Tomlin, it would seem that you content on playing with fire each week, each passing year, with no end in sight. How much longer until he really gets burned? The coaches have have got to consider the thought of dressing more offensive lineman each week. If that means sacrificing another position, which it would, then so be it. They may not have a choice but to do so at some point sooner rather than later.
Pittsburgh normally keeps 7 active lineman on the gameday roster (occasionally 8) and that scenario nearly bit them again when RG Ramon Foster ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Two key Steelers players -- linebacker James Harrison and running back Rashard Mendenhall -- were both on the inactive list for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Harrison had minor surgery on his left knee last month, and was hoping to be ready for the opener. However, he missed practice Saturday at which point he was listed as doubtful. Harrison had nine sacks last season...
The Pittsburgh Steelers gambled on Mike Adams in the 2nd round of the draft, taking a chance on a guy who never lived up to lofty expectations at Ohio State and who failed a drug test at the combine.
So far, it’s a gamble that hasn’t paid off. Adams was forced into action when Marcus Gilbert went down with an injury early in the Steelers Sunday night loss in Denvar. One the third...

It’s been a long, long time.
Eight seasons to be exact.
The year was 2003, and it was the last time the Pittsburgh Steelers finished a regular season with a losing record. That season, with the fragile Tommy Maddox at the helm, the Steelers limped into the offseason with a 6-10 record. Since that time, the Steelers have enjoyed an era of excellence marked...
Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer was the team's leading rusher in Week 1, earning 23 more yards than Isaac Redman on two less carries.Fantasy Spin:Dwyer averaged 4.8 ypc to Redman's 1.8, finishing with 43 yards on nine carries. Redman had 20 yards on 11 carries, and both players had two catches. Neither is much of a fantasy option.
I have already posted my notes from the first half of the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-19 loss Sunday night to the Denver Broncos and below are my second half notes.
Ben Roethlisberger throws behind Jonathan Dwyer on first play of the second half. Had it been caught it would of gone for good yardage.
... and there is our Willie Colon false start. Luckily Roethlisberger converts the...
We have already talked about the lack of success that the Pittsburgh Steelers offense had on first downs against the Denver Broncos earlier today. Now we will flip it over to see the job that the defense did against Peyton Mannning Sunday night on first downs.
One of the key areas needed to beat Manning is to keep him behind the chains and as predictable as possible when it comes...
Can Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers win the AFC North in route to the Super Bowl? Here are some predictions for the Steelers 2012 NFL season.
If you drafted Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace on your fantasy football team this season, you most likely did so with the intent for him to be your No. 1 or No. 2 receiver. But while you may be hoping that playing for a contract will motivate Wallace to have a career year, it may not go as you had planned.
We saw last season that Philadelphia Eagles WR Desean Jackson...
TheRedZone.org pointed out a big mistake the replacement officials made in Sunday night’s Steelers – Broncos match up.
No matter how much the NFL tries to mask it, the replacement officials continue to struggle.
Another case in point from last night’s Broncos 31-19 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Peyton Manning and the Broncos scored a touchdown late in the fourth...

The season, thankfully, is finally here, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are completing their preparations for their first opponent in the Denver Broncos. What better way to start the season than in prime time on Sunday Night Football against the team that bounced them from the playoffs this past year.
So how will this game shake out?
The Steelers Will Win This...
