Found January 21, 2013 on Steelers Depot:
It is no secret that the Pittsburgh Steelers will be looking to improve their running game in 2013 after finishing 26th overall in the league in rushing yards per game and 28th overall in rushing yards per play in 2012. One player that several Steelers fans hope that the team takes a look at in free agency is St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson, who could choose to void the final year of contract just prior to free agency starting. Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post Dispatch wrote about Jackson and his pending situation on Saturday, and he even listed the Steelers as one of three logical Read more [...]

Can the Steelers Learn From Today’s Final Four?

Every Pittsburgh Steelers’ fan has different teams that they despise but you would be hard-pressed to find any that don’t have complete hatred for both of the AFC Championship game participants today. Obviously Baltimore is to Steelers’ fans what a poopy diaper is to a baby. New England isn’t really much better when you consider the fact the Patriots have gotten the better...

Why the Steelers Should Go Wideout in Round One

This is part one 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 wide receivers. This does of course assume at this time that free agent Mike Wallace signs elsewhere in the off-season… I like Antonio Brown and I like Emmanuel Sanders. I like their energy...

Steelers Looking To Add A True Featured RB This Offseason

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writes that the Steelers will have to decide between re-signing Rashard Mendenhall or find a true featured back at some point during the offseason. Bouchette adds that Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman are both “complementary backs” rather than true featured running backs. It’s also worth noting that both Dwyer and Redman will...

Steelers Draft Thoughts From The Couch During The Playoffs

By Christopher DiMarino 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...

Vote: Who Is the Greatest Quarterback in Steelers History?

Editor’s note: As part of NFL’s Greatest Quarterback, fans will decide the best QB in each team’s history. Terry Bradshaw: Bradshaw and Joe Montana are the only quarterbacks in NFL history with four Super Bowl rings. Bradshaw led his 1970s Steelers to Super Bowls IX, X, XIII and XIV, winning them all.

Ryan Clark Unable To Replace Ed Reed At Pro Bowl Due To Injury

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...

2012 Grades, Position by Position, Running Backs

If the quarterbacks had a bipolar year, the running backs were busy redefining the term “inconsistent.” The Steelers finished the year 20th in rushing attempts (412), and 26th in rushing yards (1537). That hardly qualifies as “Steelers football.” You know, the game we are all familiar with, when the Steelers run the ball down the opponent’s throats? Jonathan Dwyer led...

Rob Ryan reportedly leaves St. Louis without a contract

After interviewing with the Rams, defensive coordinator Rob Ryan left St. Louis without a contract, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Rams interview with Rob Ryan for D coordinator spot is complete. He departed without a contract — Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) January 20, 2013 I think Ryan is a very good coordinator that has worked with some bad teams.  The problem...

St. Louis Rams: WR Steve Smith says he wants the Rams to move to L.A.

St. Louis Rams wide receiver Steve Smith did not have a very good season in 2012. The wideout caught just 14 passes for 131 yards and failed to find the end zone. While Smith did not perform very well in 2012 for the Rams, that did not stop him from being very frank about where he hopes the Rams play in future years. Smith was caught on camera at a recent event explaining that he...

Great Moments In Unlicensed Pittsburgh Sports Merch: 2013 Pens Season Blowout

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...

Rooney: Rooney Rule 'workable'

The "Rooney Rule" is workable - with some tweaks - according to its namesake. Pittsburgh Steelers chairman Dan Rooney believes the fact no minorities were hired for the eight head coaching vacancies or seven general manager-level jobs this year was an anomaly. "I think what we have is definitely a workable thing," Rooney told the NFL Network. "We do have...
