The Pittsburgh Steelers are no longer one of the first teams that come to mind when people think of consistently successful NFL franchises.
A model franchise can be counted on to make the playoffs every season with rare exceptions.
The Steelers are not in that category.
In the 21st century, the Steelers have missed the playoffs every third year. They made the playoffs in 2001 and...
The 2013 Senior Bowl is Saturday, and like the rest of you, I will have my eyes on several players that I think might could help the Pittsburgh Steelers. Below is a list of just a few players that I look forward to seeing with a very brief synopsis of each.
Feel free to add other names of players that you look forward to seeing play and what you are looking for out of each.
The Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line is sure to make a couple of changes during the off-season and they could be a very young starting group in 2013. During the past three NFL Drafts the Steelers have focused heavily on the offensive line and it may finally be ready to pay off. The only question left to answer is whether or not the Steelers can keep their line healthy for an entire...
The Pittsburgh Steelers run game is not what it used to be. During the 2005 season the Steelers won a Super Bowl behind Willie Parker and Jerome Bettis and the run game. They passed the ball only when they needed too and Ben Roethlisberger only averaged 15 completions per game during the regular season. In comparison Roethlisberger averaged almost 24 completions per game in 2012...
The saying “any given Sunday” is well known around the NFL. It’s basic meaning is that any given Sunday any team can beat any other team and for the most part it is true. Every year in the NFL there are good teams and bad teams, but the one thing that people fail to remember at times is that every player in the NFL is a pro-football player and was a stand-out player in college...
We mentioned yesterday that the Pittsburgh Steelers will likely redo their backfield for next season.
Even the Steelers’ official website agrees with the idea that at least Rashard Mendenhall won’t be back in the Steel City next season.
Mendenhall will be a free agent this offseason and after a disappointing season in which he came back from ACL surgery and the fact that...
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...
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...

The primary concern that I've had for the Pittsburgh Steelers over the past few years appears to be a key theme in this NFL Playoffs. You see, I believe that the mental component of football is much more important than many lead on. Having the drive to win is vital and can separate otherwise equivalent teams. The Steelers proved a lot in the last decade...
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...
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.
