Velasco at Center Could Be a Game-Changer for Steelers

Fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers really don’t have a lot to be excited about heading into Monday night’s game at Cincinnati when it comes to the running game. The Steelers were about as bad as they’ve ever been on the ground and while the Titans had something to do with that, much of it was self-inflicted. Saying the loss of Maurkice Pouncey wasn’t a factor wouldn’t be fair...

The Steelers' success will be determined by the Offensive Line

For the last two seasons, the general knock on the Steelers was that their defense was perhaps too old to remain competitive.  They went on to field the number one defense in each of the last two seasons.  So much for being too old.  But big names such as Farrier, Hampton, Harrison, Foote, and Smith are now absent from that defense.  They’ll still give up some big plays...

Jarvis Jones running with the Steelers starting defense in practice

We reported on Wednesday that Steelers rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones has been listed a co-starter along with Jason Worilds. Jones told the media that he’s been running with the starting defense in practice this week. “That’s the way it is right now,” Jones said on Wednesday, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “As long as I continue to keep doing what I’m doing, I hope...

Beachum a quick study at center for Steelers

Kelvin Beachum beat the odds to make the Pittsburgh Steelers a year ago, going from seventh-round draft pick to starting right tackle by the end of the season. Beachum finds himself facing an even more daunting task this fall: replacing Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey. Beachum will start in place of Pouncey on Monday night when the Steelers travel to Cincinnati. Pouncey will have...

Reasons Why Ben Roethlisberger Wasn’t at Practice Today

Several Steelers’ beat writers tweeted out today that Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was not at practice today. He was excused due ‘personal reasons’ but I think there is much more to this story. I have this boiled down to a few reasons why the 10th-year QB would miss practice coming off such an embarrassing loss. See if you’re on board with me here...

Jarvis Jones and Chris Johnson exchange words

by Bo Marchionte PITTSBURGH - Unless you have been living under a rock since the 1970's there is a tradition in Pittsburgh, the Steelers connecting each generation of linebackers to success. The 1970's saw Jack Lambert and Jack Ham. The 1980's Mike Merriweather. In the 1990's, Greg Lloyd, Kevin Greene, and Levon Kirkland. At the turn of the century, another...

Steelers Versus Bengals Key Matchup: Ike Taylor Versus A.J. Green

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green is certainly one of the tops in the league currently and it will be up to Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor to make sure that he does not have a performance anywhere close to one he had in the Week 16 game last year. Taylor of course missed that game with a fractured ankle and Green proceeded to catch 10 passes for 116 yards as...

Steelers Versus Titans Sack Break Down

By Alex Kozora In weeks with multiple sacks allowed by the Pittsburgh Steelers, I’ll be breaking down each individual one, assigning blame, and keeping track of a “sack counter” for the guilty parties. And this week, with five allowed against the Tennessee Titans, was worthy of an article dedicated to it. Buckle up, this one is a bumpy ride. 1. 1st and 10, 2:06 left in the...

Le'Veon Bell Could Be Out At Least Another Month

Pittsburgh Steelers: The Joan Rivers of the NFL

Yup I said it. Joan Rivers is a metaphor for the once almighty Pittsburgh Steelers. After seeing what was a putrid performance against an “O.K.” at best Tennessee Titans team, I think it’s apropos. Much like Joan Rivers, the Steelers used to be an intimidating force. But, after many face-lifts, Ben Roethlisberger’s hood ornament accident among others, and injuries to many...
