LaMarr Woodley Calls Hamstring Fatigued, Plans To Play Thursday

LaMarr Woodley called his hamstring “fatigued”  after the game.  He also indicated that he was going to split time with Jason Worilds regardless of if he had gotten fatigued or not.  Woodley had no intention of playing the entire game versus the Bengals.  He also seems to have no intention of playing the entire game the rest of the regular season.  He plans on him and Worilds...

End of Line for Hoke, A Time of Sadness

Video: Harrison's vicious hit on McCoy

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison will almost certainly get fined for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy in the 4th quarter of the Thursday night game at Heinz Field. McCoy was scrambling outside the pocket and threw the ball on the run just before he passed the line of scrimmage. The video and animated gif below shows that Harrison hit...

Harrison fulfilling coach's prophecy

PITTSBURGH -- The text messages bounced from old friend to old friend last week, from state to state, sharing the news that Mo Tipton had passed away. When the news reached Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison, he had one immediate memory of his former coach at Coventry High School in Akron, Ohio. "Coach Tipton was the first guy that ever said one day I'd be playing...

LaMarr Woodley is Doubtful for Cleveland

The Steelers look to be playing it cautious with LaMarr Woodley this week.  He sat out practice again yesterday and is extremely doubtful for tomorrow night. They will be targeting the Monday Night Game against the San Francisco 49ers as a return for Woodley. When Woodley went out in the second quarter and never returned it was not a good sign for this week.  His hamstring got...

Prediction Of Week 14 Steelers Inactives Against The Browns

The Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Cleveland Browns tonight at Heinz Field as they look to move to 10-3 on the season and inch even closer to a playoff birth. The short week went by fast and the Wednesday injury report shows that five players were ruled out and one player as doubtful. That makes the inactives for Thursday night very easy to predict with the only real choice being...

For Steelers, the youth movement is already underway

Sad news from the Steelers today: longtime defensive lineman Chris Hoke, 35, is going to have season-ending neck surgery and is likely to retire after this season. That makes him the second defensive lineman to have season and likely career-ending surgery this year after Aaron Smith bowed out several weeks ago. Heading into this season, the Steelers were an aging team. The defense...

James Harrison Almost Killed Colt McCoy Last Night

The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Cleveland Browns 14-3 Thursday night at Heinz Field and here are some of my post game observations after going through the game again. Lawrence Timmons bit hard on the play action on the early long completion to Evan Moore and never recovered in coverage. On the second big completion to Josh Cribbs, Troy Polamalu guessed wrong and Cribbs was wide...
