Bleed Black & Gold:
Steelers Guard Chris Kemoeatu was fined $25,000 by the NFL this week. It was for two separate incidents in last Sunday’s game vs. the Cardinals. He was fined $15k for a late hit and $10k for a hands to the face call. Both plays were penalized and both plays were stupid and hurt the Steelers in the game. I am normally against the fines but Kemo is a dope when it comes to this stuff. He deserved both of these. They were both legit.
As a note the Steelers have now been fined $97,500 for the season.

Ian Rapoport said on NFL Network yesterday that before the season started a Patriots offensive player told him that Tom Brady said “Against the Steelers, don’t worry, I got it.” You can see the report here as Brady insinuates he owns Dick LeBeau. The pregame release for the Patriots game is up in PDF format and it tells us the Steelers look to open the season 4-0 at Heinz...
Prepping for the a trip to Heinz Field this weekend, the Patriots have reason to have their antennae up, knowing a banged up Ben Roethlisberger is often times more dangerous than a healthy one.
Tom Brady has played some outstanding games against the Pittsburgh Steelers. His next chance comes Sunday at Heinz Field.
The Patriots quarterback is 6-1 against them and has completed at least two-thirds of his passes in six of those games. Last year, he led New England to a 39-26 win at Pittsburgh in which he completed 30 of 43 passes for 350 yards and three touchdowns.
It is Patriot week. The third biggest week of the year. They still do not compare to either of the Ravens weeks of the year. Now I could go through 20 different key match ups in this game. There are so many people who will be going up against one another that will be huge match ups for the Steelers in this game. Here are a couple of them.
Lawrence Timmons vs. Rob Gronkowski...
Once again, it's time for our weekly Q&A session with a blogger who covers the Patriots' upcoming opponent. Up this week is Bam from Blitzburgh Blog. Here's what Bam had to say about the Steelers and Pats leading up to Sunday's game.
1. The Steelers are 5-2, but are not really on anyone's radar. Why do you think that is and where do they stack...
