BEST OF MAXIM

I was enjoying some playoff football when I read Jeremy Hritz's article relating to the importance of the Pittsburgh Steelers drafting some elite talent to replace Mike Wallace, but it ended up breeding more and more thoughts so I decided to write a speculatory article instead. The initial thought was that the 1st pick should go to defense in the form...
This is part two in a series from steelcityblitz.com arguing the reasons why the Pittsburgh Steelers should take a specific position with the 17th pick in the first round. Today is a look at outside linebackers. The Pittsburgh Steelers defense in 2012 ranked number one overall and number one against the pass, but the team missed the playoffs with an 8-8 record. While rankings are...
Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark had to turn down an opportunity to replace Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed in the 2013 Pro Bowl on Monday due to the severe quad contusion that he suffered in the season finale against the Cleveland Browns.
Clark posted the news on his Twitter account Monday evening: "Got the call for the Pro bowl today. I can't play but thank you...
If the quarterbacks had a bipolar year, the running backs were busy redefining the term “inconsistent.”

Citizens of the One and Only Sports Nation, we are in a time of mourning. Not only are our beloved Steelers making vacation plans which do not include saying the words “I’m going to Disney World!”, two teams that give us absolutely nothing to cheer for, are meeting in the Super Bowl.
If you are not familiar with my work, or who I am (Where have you been?), I live just outside...
By now you have probably read the report by Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com that states the New York Jets are looking to trade cornerback Darrelle Revis, who missed almost all of last season after suffering a torn ACL. If you are one of the people that think that the Pittsburgh Steelers will trade for Revis, you need to have your head checked.
Revis is set to earn a $3 million...
With the season in the books, it’s time to break down the Pittsburgh Steelers’ roster. We’ll move along alphabetically and make it a 5-parter. Here’s A through C:
Well here's something we haven't poked our heads around in for quite some time. Great Moments in Unlicensed Pittsburgh Sports Merch, my love note to the crappy knockoff sports memorabilia we've all known and been gifted, sort of dried up as a regular feature as 2011 turned to 2012. We had only 1 or 2 posts on the subject in all of the last calendar year. Not for lack...
Here we are again, answering questions about the offseason instead of the Super Bowl. I don’t expect customers to be tossing me softballs about the Pittsburgh Steelers, but I’ll try to hit some sharp singles anyway.
