Tomlin finally joined Twitter nation earlier this summer, and The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review notes that Tomlin follows a strict 53-man roster on Twitter.

The Baltimore Ravens started things off with their 49-27  loss in the 2013 season opener to the Denver Broncos and the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns all followed suit with...

Mike Tomlin Looking For A Better Ratio Out Of Ziggy Hood This Year

Should an extension not be announced for Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Ziggy Hood by the time kickoff rolls around, he will most definitely be a restricted free agent following the season. Last season, Hood started in all 16 contests and matched a career-high with three sacks and set a new single-season career-high with 40 tackles. In addition to that, he tied for the team lead...

Loss of Maurkice Pouncey may be too big for the Steelers to overcome

One of the huge surprises from Sunday’s action was the Steelers’ opening day loss at the hands of the Tennessee Titans. It was a very Steeler-esque game, but at the end of the day, it was the Titans that had the upper hand. The Steelers’ defense actually did its part in the 16 to 9 loss.

Steelers Loss To Titans: Hard to Find A Silver Lining

By Jeremy Hritz It’s agonizingly difficult to find a silver lining in Sunday's defeat at the hands of the Tennessee Titans, and even upon an extremely close analysis, there may only be a thread of optimism that can be found, and that is in the fact that there are still 15 games left to play. An effort can made to minimize the loss, but it was a home game season opener in which...

A Game Of Firsts

By Matthew Marczi When the Pittsburgh Steelers take the field on Sunday to take on the Tennessee Titans in the season opener at Heinz Field, it will be a game of many firsts; indeed, far more than normal.
