Despite Threats, Steelers Manage To Rear Ugly Head Sunday On Special Teams

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin laid down the law this past week to his special team units when he said that he would take action against players that committed egregious penalties. Unfortunately that message wasn't loud enough as the Steelers almost let the Washington Redskins back into the game Sunday when a retuned punt for a touchdown by Antonio Brown was called...

The Pittsburgh Steelers released defensive end Corbin Bryant from the practice squad on Tuesday and re-signed offensive linemen John Malecki and tight end Jamie McCoy to the eight man unit.

RG3 Will Test The Dominance That LeBeau Has Had Over Rookie Quarterbacks

By now you all should be well aware of the record that Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau has against rookie quarterbacks since his return to Pittsburgh in 2004. If you are not, it is 14-1. When LeBeau was the Steelers defensive coordinator the first time around in 1995 and 1996, he was 2-0 against the two rookie quarterbacks during that span of time, so essentially...

RG3 No Match For BR7 As Steelers Beat Redskins 27-12 – Game Recap

There was some great quarterback play Sunday and it didn't come from the well talked about, and highly hyped, Washington Redskins rookie Robert Griffin III as Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was head and shoulders better than the one that they call RG3 at Heinz Field.

Shanahan: next game is a 'must-win'

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan sees the writing on the wall. At 3-5, playoff chances are fading fast, and he knows very well that losing the next game to the lowly Carolina Panthers (1-6) would very much be the proverbial nail in the coffin. "Everybody knows it's a must-win game when you're 3-5. ... If you have any chance at the playoffs, everybody...

Ben Roethlisberger's Career Season, James Harrison's Leadership Have Steelers Emergeing as Sleeping Giant in Wide-Open AFC

Ben Roethlisberger's first of the 2012 regular season was also his worst. He completed just 22 of 40 passes against the Broncos and threw an interception late in the fourth that cornerback Tracy Porter returned for what would be the game-clinching touchdown. After entering the season with high hopes to improve on last year's wild card playoff exit, and...

Steelers wear throwback uniforms in win over Redskins

The Pittsburgh Steelers wore throw back uniforms in Sunday’s win over the Washington Redskins. Much of the attention about this game was given to the match-up between Robert Griffin III and the Steelers defense. When the game was played Dick Lebeau used his 53 years of experience to frustrate the Redskins offense. Ben Rothlisberger connected with Leonard Pope for an early touchdown...

Week 8 NFL Recap: Washington Redskins at Pittsburgh Steelers

It’s becoming more and more evident that the Steelers smell blood in the water after the Baltimore Ravens lost two of their most important defenders prior to Week 7 and now the AFC North looks like a crap shoot. The Redskins are clearly a competitive bunch, but after they lost Brian Orakpo, there just isn’t much that their defense can do. Robert Griffin III may throw the best...

RG3 lines up at wide receiver and gets rocked (Video)

This was by far the dumbest thing I saw all day, and could be the dumbest thing I’ve seen so far this year.  Robert Griffin III is the Washington Redskins best player, and he has already had one concussion this year; so why on earth would you line him up at receiver and allow defenders to take a free shot at him?Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark looked like he was salivating...

Washington Hoping To Have Pierre Garcon Back Following Their Bye

Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan mentioned that WR Pierre Garcon is more likely to return following their bye in Week 10, per Chris Russell. Washington’s receivers have struggled with drops as of late, so Robert Griffin III could really use some additional help in the near future. Garcon’s foot injury has plagued his first season with the team, but there’s really no guarantee...
