What would the National Football League be without its’ characters? Would the game be as great as it is without guys like Art Donovan and Conrad Dobler? The answer is no. These are colorful guys who bring something funny to an intense game and provide the fans with some good humor and water cooler talking points. One guy who obviously didn’t pay attention to how this type of thing was done is the Giants’ Justin Tuck.
Because I write exclusively Steelers’ articles, I don’t pay a whole lot of attention to other teams in the league as closely as I do the Black ‘n Gold but it appears as if Tuck does quite a bit of talking before each game and most of it centers on the opponent. What makes Tuck fairly irrelevant is that his talking points are uninteresting, uninspired and are as old as the game itself.
It’s too bad too because the guy is a damn good football player and is a fine pitchman for Subway Sandwiches. A job he no doubt got from the coattails of one Michel Strahan. Perhaps Tuck c...

THE WALKING DEAD
Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward will have a cameo role this season in the hit AMC show, "The Walking Dead." Ward will play a zombie of course and the 7 minute video below has all of the details. The 36-year old Ward, who is now an NFL analyst for NBC Sports, had over 12,000 receiving yards in his career for Steelers and has never been shy when a camera...
One of the best ways for the New York Giants to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend would be to put some pressure on Ben Roethlisberger — something very few teams have had success doing this season. Roethlisberger has been sacked only 13 times through the first seven games, which is one of the reasons he has completely nearly 67% of his passes and has an impressive QB rating...
The Pittsburgh Steelers made a practice squad roster move on Friday as guard Jacques McClendon was released and safety Damon Cromartie-Smith was signed back after clearing waivers.
Cromartie-Smith had been waived late Tuesday so that nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu could be added back to the 53 man roster from the suspended list.
McClendon had been signed to the practice squad a few...
While I was not a fan of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown backpedaling 20-yards into the end zone on the punt return last week against the Washington Redskins, I think him being fined $10,000 is way too harsh.
To put that in perspective, the Baltimore Ravens were fined $20,000 by the NFL this past week for previously not listing free safety Ed Reed on the injury...
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin met the media for his post game press conference following the 24-20 win Sunday over the New York Giants.
Tomlin talked about the adversity that the team faced today and also about the penalties and injuries suffered in the game as well. Tomlin also answered questions regarding the fake field goal that called that failed.
Below is the audio...
NFL teams, and really I think most sports teams are creatures of habit. You hear all the time about coaches and players preferring to stay in a routine during the week whenever possible. When confronted with a unique situation they’ll downplay the change whenever possible but still, players are human too and have to adjust. The Steelers this week will have to jump out of that comfort...
According to Tarik El-Bashir of CSNWashington.com, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has been fined $10,000 for taunting last week in the win over the Washington Redskins.
Brown was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct last Sunday after he finished off his 78 yard, third quarter punt return for a touchdown...

The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the New York Giants 24-20 Sunday at MetLife Stadium and below are my first half notes from the game with the second half notes to follow soon.
Keenan Lewis got his night off to a good start by knocking away a deep pass intended for Hakeem Nicks on the first play of the game for the Giants. Lewis had given up inside position on the route, but made it...
