Willie Colon emerged from Sunday's win in Cincinnati down more than one of his signature dreadlocks. At least he was unofficially awarded a takedown for a post-whistle body slam of Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict. It was Colon's kind of game, the perfect coming-out party for the Steelers offensive lineman continuing to settle in to his new position at guard. ''He had controlled violence last week,'' said Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Colon, for his part, laughs off the ''violence'' descriptor. ''Controlled chaos,'' Colon corrects. ''That's my type of play.'' The bleed-the-clock, straight-ahead running in the fourth quarter. The abundance of pulls to open up holes. The intensity of playing the first divisional game of the season under the lights. Colon was arguably the Steelers' best lineman in the 24-17 win over the Bengals, and there's little arguing it was his best game of the...

Heath Miller for President! Why Not?

Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger mentioned this week that he thinks Steelers’ tight end Heath Miller should be running for president. I couldn’t agree more and here’s why; 1. Miller could easily handle defense issues. Is there another tight end in the league that plows through defenders the way that Heath does? Can you imagine Iran threatening Heath Miller...

For Some, It’s Always Ben’s Fault

Ben Roethlisberger is in a no-win situation and while some of it may be of his own doing, the fact is that he just can’t win no matter what he does on the field anymore. If he gets the Steelers a lead in the second half and the team still loses, it’s his fault. If he puts up 31 points and the Steelers lose, it’s his fault. If he leads the team from behind and the Steelers still...

Steelers Get Back to .500, Still Have Questions, That is Okay

Steelers Ground Game Lost Going Into Clash With Redskins

By SBRForum.com The Pittsburgh Steelers might be a 3-3 team through six weeks, but they know that they are going to have to run the ball a whole heck of a lot better than they have been over the course of the first six games of the season if they have a chance to make it to the playoffs this year. This week’s foe is the Washington Redskins, who are 4 ½-point underdogs on the opening...

Heath Miller an unsung hero in Pittsburgh

When talk around the league about the elite tight ends the names Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, Vernon Davis, and Antonio Gates and soon to be Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez always come up. However there is one tight end that never quite makes the list. Heath Miller who has had a successful yet modest NFL career always seems to get the short end of the stick in the list...
