BEST OF MAXIM
The bewitching hour has come and gone as the Pittsburgh Steelers have boarded their plane and left for Denver with no news that wide receiver Mike Wallace has received a long-term deal.
While their is a very tiny, tiny, tiny chance that they just are keeping it hush, it wouldn't make sense for them to do so and in all likelihood Wallace will now have to play out his fourth...
The Pittsburgh Steelers have landed in Denver and Mike Prisuta of DVE Radio reports via Twitter that no contract extensions are anticipated pre-kickoff. Unless you have been hiding underneath a rock, you know that is regarding wide receiver Mike Wallace.
Prisuta reports in his tweet that one team official said, "We'll try again next year."
Now that the Pittsburgh Steelers have left for Denver for their season opener, and no new contract for wide receiver Mike Wallace was reported to be on board, we can now take a firmer look at where the team sits from a salary cap standpoint headed into week 1 of the season.
PFT reports on Saturday that the Steelers have $1.6 million in cap space. That closely resembles my updated...
The best case scenario for any NFL team is to have all hands on deck and everyone healthy for the season opener. While that doesn’t happen as often as we’d like, the potential for injury early in the season is always a risk to be mindful of regardless. Healthy players certainly are not immune to injuries but those who have missed significant portions of time before hand generally...
Peyton Manning has been one of the biggest stories of the NFL offseason. When you’re a future hall of fame quarterback, maybe the best regular season quarterback of all time and when you’re coming off missing an entire NFL season it’s fair to say that he deserves most of the publicity. But how much is [...]

We’ll see if anything else gets done before games kickoff on Sunday. No progress b/n Mike Wallace and Steelers, so that one’s not happening

No contract extensions to discuss, but jersey numbers, QB numbers, sack numbers, Troy Polamalu, Rashard Mendenhall.
The Pittsburgh Steelers will open the season Sunday night against the Denver Broncos, but the status of one of their best players on defense remains unclear.
All-Pro linebacker James Harrison was limited in practice Wednesday and did not practice on Thursday, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.
Harrison was officially activated by the Steelers last week after...
Affiliate: Football fans are given a gift from schedule-makers in Week 1 as the Denver Broncos will be at home versus the Pittsburgh Steelers in the season’s first edition of Sunday Night Football.
The NFL odds give a good barometer of what’s expected out of these teams this season.
As it stands, the Steelers are the one-point underdogs for this Week 1 meeting in the high altitude...
If you asked anyone which Steelers player has the most to prove this year you would get a lot of answers. Some of them would be ridiculous; Ben Roethlisberger, Troy Polamalu, Brett Keisel, James Harrison, Ike Taylor, Ryan Clark all have proven all they need to and are simply building their legacy. Others would make [...]
Something that former Steelers Head Coach Bill Cowher used to day, “get a hat on a hat”, is probably embedded in the minds of Steeler fans for all of eternity. We heard it so many times it was like a broken record, but he preached doing so because of the importance of beating your man, taking care of your responsibility on the field. Doing so leads to success, plain and simple...
