The Pittsburgh Steelers are playing so well at the moment, even Mike Tomlin is getting optimistic.
The typically gruff coach allowed his team is heading in the right direction after a relatively easy 27-12 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday. The Steelers held explosive rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III in check and limited the NFL's top rushing team to a season-low 86 yards.
The offense continued to thrive under new coordinator Todd Haley. Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger tossed three touchdown passes and wasn't sacked for the second time this season.
Tackle Max Starks says the Steelers (4-3) have stopped digging a hole for themselves and started laying a foundation for a successful season.
Pittsburgh will look for its third straight win next weekend against the Super Bowl champion New York Giants.

It may seem like a decade ago, but it really was just this past summer and entire preseason where Pittsburgh Steelers’ wideout Mike Wallace sat out in a contract dispute with the team. Wallace certainly didn’t do himself any favors with the fan base, but I think in general, many fans understood what Wallace was doing as other players in the league went down with injuries in the...
The Steelers have drafted offensive tackles in the second round of the past two NFL Drafts. A year ago they drafted Marcus Gilbert and the thought at the time was he would be molded into the future left tackle with Willie Colon at right tackle, but oh how things change.

It’s funny how controversial this term, “dink and dunk” can be when it comes to football these days. It’s not that there is anything wrong with it, at least I don’t think so because the ultimate goal in professional sports is to win no matter what. If it’s short passing; fine, if it’s going deep … Continue reading »
Big Ben Roethlisberger just plunking the referee in the head with a pass like it ain't no thing. Don't make a bad call against the Steelers or you know what you're up against. I just can't wait until he tries to pull that on Ed Hochuli and Ed tosses him in the torture rack until he taps out. Video of the pass below if you missed it.
P.S. Am I the...
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was not one bit happy with the taunting penalty Antonio Brown received Sunday and he addressed the matter with the guilty party and the team as a whole.
I not only spoke to Antonio, but I spoke to our team about it, Tomlin said today at his weekly press conference. Briefly, simply what I said is that it was not respectable.
Brown, a wide receiver...

Mike Wallace, having a subpar season in Pittsburgh while working under the franchise tag, looks set to depart in the offseason barring a major change in the second half of the season. Wallace (29 receptions, 397 yards, 4 TD) has not been a vertical threat this season, has struggled for consistency since coming back from a prolonged holdout, and is no longer the team's top pass...
The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Washington Redskins 27-12 Sunday at Heinz Field and below are my first half notes from the game with the second half notes to follow soon.
A nice start by Jonathan Dwyer as he turns a possible stuff into positive yardage. The fake bubble screen that resulted in an explosive play to Heath Miller was nicely designed and well executed. The first catch...

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.
