Chris Rainey was speared by a Giants player in the ribs on a kick return today during the Steelers 24-20 win. The play should have received a flag as Rainey was down and the play was blown dead before the Giants player made the hit on Rainey. No flag was thrown, however, and before making it to the sideline Rainey collapsed on the field. He was taken to a local area hospital following the play for x-rays on his ribs. There was some thought that Rainey had broken at least one rib and that he may have punctured a lung. When that was stated many people began taking it as a fact that Rainey had broken a rib and had a punctured lung. In fact, there are already groups on Twitter asking for prayers for a quick recovery for Rainey. The problem is that Rainey doesn’t have any broken ribs and does not have a punctured lung. Rainey has bruised ribs and expects to have some pain early in the week, but may be able to play next week and will likely, at most, miss only one game. Dejan Kovacevic of...

Is Antonio Brown Paying For The Emmanuel Sanders Cramp?

While I was not a fan of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown backpedaling 20-yards into the end zone on the punt return last week against the Washington Redskins, I think him being fined $10,000 is way too harsh. To put that in perspective, the Baltimore Ravens were fined $20,000 by the NFL this past week for previously not listing free safety Ed Reed on the injury...

Heath Miller Poised For Another Big Day

The Steelers and many of their fans have known what they had in Heath Miller for a long time. One of the reasons so many fans were fed up with former offensive coordinator Bruce Arians was his limited use of Miller in the passing game especially in the red zone. The most touchdowns Miller ever scored when Arians was the offensive coordinator was 7 in 2007. Over the past two years...

Ryan Clark Flagged for Unnecessary Roughness on Questionable Victor Cruz Hit (Animation)

There's no replacement refs to blame for the poor officiating in the Steelers-Giants game. Ryan Clark was flagged for unnecessary roughness on a big hit that seemed clean according to NFL rules.
