The Penalty Flag:
The number seven has much significance in the city of Pittsburgh. There are many connections, large and small, good and bad, obvious and not-so-obvious. Regardless of their nature, all these connections are pointed at the most important seven, Super Bowl Championship No. 7.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger wears number seven. The team misses him, as they are win less since his injury. Stuck at six wins, the team that had done so well without their star QB in recent history, now needs No. 7 to get healthy quick, if they are going to get to win No. 7.

The Steelers have had it rough the last couple of weeks, dropping two straight while the Cincinnati Bengals have closed the gap in the wildcard race. Ben Roethlisberger's status is still up in the air for this weekend's game against the Ravens, but even with another loss, the Steelers aren't in terrible shape in the playoff picture.
The Steelers have a couple of key...

Coach Mike Tomlin said he will "leave the door open," but a source told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he would be "shocked" if Roethlisberger played.Fantasy Spin:Week 12 starter Charlie Batch (38.7 QB rating) was as bad as Byron Leftwich and if the Steelers are going...
Ed Bouchette reports that Steelers WR Antonio Brown and S Troy Polamalu are expected to return to practice on Wednesday and both have a shot at playing against the Ravens this weekend.
Brown has missed a few weeks because of an ankle injury, so having him back in the lineup would certainly help their passing attack in the weeks to come. If Charlie Batch is under center against...
