The Steelers Offensive Line Could be Really Young and Talented in 2013

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...

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...

2012 Steelers A Perfect Example of “Any Given Sunday”

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...

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. He was the No. 1 overall pick out of Louisiana Tech in 1970, and he shared...

Why the Steelers Should Go Outside ‘Backer in Round One

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...

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...

A Sad Super Bowl for The Nation

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...

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...

Ask Wex (1/23)

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.
