BEST OF MAXIM
Mike Tomlin is a no nonsense head coach and likes to keep things simple.
Tomlin finally joined TwitterÂ nation earlier this summer, andÂ The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review notes that TomlinÂ follows a strict 53-man rosterÂ on Twitter.
When theÂ SteelersÂ trimmed down their roster down from 75 players to 53 over the weekend, Tomlin also cut those players from his Twitter follow list.
The day started well for the Pittsburgh Steelers when Tennessee return man Darius Reynaud brain-farted and gave the Steelers two points on the opening kickoff, but it was all down hill from there. The Steelers looked pretty bad through out the day and ended up losing to the Titans 16-9.While the early season loss would be pretty easy to recover from the loss of All-Pro center Maurkice...
Big loss for Steelers.
Pouncey done. ACL and MCL surgery for him and Foote biceps

It was the first time head coach Mike Tomlin looked rattled. He carries himself like a proud lion. Brave, strong, and fearless in the face of adversity. This past weekend after the Pittsburgh Steelers lost 16-9 at home against the Tennessee Titans a team many expected the Steelers to beat convincingly, there was a different Coach Tomlin at the podium. It seemed he ...
The AFC North certainly isn't what it used to be, at least after the first week of the 2013 season, as all four teams are 0-1 heading into the second week of the season.
The Baltimore Ravens started things off with their 49-27 Â loss in the 2013 season opener to the Denver Broncos and the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns all followed suit with...
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...
The Steelers couldn't get through eight snaps before losing their center and captain, Maurkice Pouncey, on a fluke play during a 16-9 loss.
One of the huge surprises from Sundayâ€™s action was the Steelersâ€™ 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 Steelersâ€™ defense actually did its part in the 16 to 9 loss. The Titans were unable to move the ball consistently, but they were able to do just enough...
In a flurry of necessary roster moves, the Pittsburgh Steelers have changed the make-up of their team in just a few days.According to Josh Alper of NBCSports, the Pittsburgh Steelers have placed center, Maurkice Pouncey, linebacker, Larry Foote and running back, LaRod Stephens-Howling, on season-ending injured reserve from injuries suffered in Sundayâ€™s loss to the Tennessee Titans...

YOUR PITTSBURGH STEELERS ARE IN FIRST PLACE IN THE AFC NORTH!
Wait, what?! Yes, you heard correctly...your Steelers lost to the Tennessee Titans in the opening week of the season, and by virtue of everyone else in the division losing, there's a 4-way tie atop the AFC North. Granted, that's not how you're expecting things to shake out just a game into...

Itâ€™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...

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. With several new starters on both sides of the ball, the team will be fielding a lot of combinations that have never worked together in a regular season game before.
