Steel City Blitz:
Art Rooney II
The more I look at last season the more ticked I get about the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 8-8 record. Clearly this team was better than that and there is enough blame to fill a ballroom. Unfortunately, when I start looking at the Steelers’ offense in 2013 I can’t say my anger subsides very much.
Let’s consider what the holes the offense has to fill as we sit here in early February just days removed from our arch-rivals winning the Super Bowl. Here is the good news; Ben Roethlisberger is the quarterback and should be for the next 4-5 seasons.
A young, and potentially talented offensive line with a new coach is also a positive but I could not argue that some may find negatives with that too. That about does it for the positives folks…
The negatives? Where do I begin?
Mike Wallace is as good as gone. If the story by the Post-Gazette’s Ed Bouchette is accurate in that Wallace turned down $10 million a year from the team then there is no way in the name of Stallworth and Swann that...

Last month we started our look at potential early round draft prospects for the Pittsburgh Steelers by breaking down a few of the early round outside linebacker prospects. Today we will shift our focus to the running back position and start a discussion on Giovani Bernard out of North Carolina, who you have probably seen associated elsewhere as a prospect for the Steelers.
Having had a chance to digest what I admit was a very entertaining and bizarre Super Bowl, here is what I think:
Let’s just get this out of the way up front. No self-respecting, card-carrying Citizen of the original sports nation can say they are happy with how this Super Bowl played out.
The ravens winning their second Super Bowl by beating the San Francisco 49ers means that we...
According to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Pittsburgh Steelers, along with several other NFL teams, recently showed interest in B.C. Lions right tackle Jovan Olafioye, who was named the best offensive lineman in the CFL last season.

This time of year I receive quite a few questions regarding the Pittsburgh Steelers cap...

Pittsburgh Steelers fans nearly had their prayers answered when a power surge caused a partial power failure during the third quarter of the Super Bowl.
