The 2012 NFL season will forever be known as the year of the replacement officials. It doesn’t matter how many games the Steelers win or anybody else; whoever wins the Super Bowl will have an asterisk by their title in the minds of the fans.

While not penalized on the play...
After the debacle that was the Steelers loss to the Raiders on Sunday at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, there is plenty of blame to go around across the entire team. As Mike Tomlin would say, you win as a team and you lose as a team. No one person causes a loss any more than one person can win a game.
For the Steelers defense though, there are many questions as they head into their...
Through three weeks of the NFL season, the Pittsburgh Steelers have seen lofty expectations shattered, but even loftier expectations start to come to fruition. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is playing at a level that puts him atop the NFL’s list of passers.
Now, I’m of the school of thought that says that it’s never too early to make predictions and end up eating...
Troy Polamalu and James Harrison returned to practice Tuesday and participated fully. Optimism was high Tuesday night and Wednesday morning that both players would be back soon. That idea was destroyed Wednesday afternoon when Harrison left the Steelers facility before practice had even started due ContinueThe post James Harrison Return Still Unknown appeared first on SteelBlitz.

The former undrafted free agent posted Thursday on Twitter that he still has to sit out one more game to satisfy his four game suspension for testing positive for the banned drug Adderall.
Were you hanging out on Twitter today? If so, you may have seen the panic that was caused over Pittsburgh Steelers QB, Ben Roethlisberger.

The play of Oakland Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer this past weekend can not be understated, but the defense of the Pittsburgh Steelers certainly helped the veteran quarterback out by declaring what they were going to do several times during the game pre snap.
You are likely reading quite a bit today about how "predictable" the defense was on Sunday, but most of the...
