Steelers Finding Themselves in Limbo With Harrison?

I think we all realize that the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense is better with James Harrison on the field than off. You could certainly argue even at 75% Harrison would be a better option than either Chris Carter or Jason Worilds. The problem really doesn’t revolve around that though because what it deals with is simply getting Harrison on the field period. I found myself at one...

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Mundy fined for hit on Darrius Heyward-Bey

A report on ESPN broke the news Wednesday that the NFL has fined Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Mundy $21,000 for his hit on Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey.This fine is monetarily on par with fines levied this season on players for player safety related hits, and should not have come as a surprise to either the fans or Mundy. While not penalized on the play...

Ben Roethlisberger playing at an elite level early in the season

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...

Onward Steelers; TE Miller Having Career Year

When Pittsburgh Steelers’ Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley made his first comments after accepting the job, the first player he mentioned wasn’t Mike Wallace or Ben Roethlisberger. Oddly enough, it was tight end Heath Miller who Haley spoke of in glowing terms. After the first three games of 2012, it’s easy to see why Haley was so enamored with the talented tight end from the...

Steelers LB LaMarr Woodley Makes South Park Debut In Sarcastaball Episode

Wednesday was the season premier of South Park and the long-running cartoon started the season off by mocking the NFL and their stance on concussions, as well as the recent replacement referee debacle. The episode centers around Randy Marsh, who’s frustrated about the excessive safety measures in football. Marsh offers up sarcastic solutions to the problem such as players playing...

Hard work paid off for Pittsburgh Steelers FB Will Johnson and agent advisor Joe Tyler

The starting fullback for the Pittsburgh Steelers is relatively unknown, as is his agent, which makes the success for both individuals a compelling story.  Steelers FB Will Johnson won the starting role when David Johnson (they are not related) went down with a season-ending injury.  Will Johnson was the only fullback left on the Steelers roster and became the de facto starter...

Steelers Larry Foote reportedly tells replacement refs that they should kill themselves

Man I’m not sure who has it rougher right now? Jay Cuter, Mitt Romney, or the replacement referees. I’m not a ref but I have played enough organized basketball and tons of football games to know refs have it rough. You enter that kitchen though and you must deal with the heat. These replacement refs are catching hell whether deserved or not. Deadspin is reporting that Steelers...

Steelers Raiders Week 3 Defensive Participation Chart

Below are the defensive player play counts and participation chart for the Pittsburgh Steelers week 3 game against the Oakland Raiders. Player Notes: Nose tackle Casey Hampton played 27 snaps as opposed to just 3 for Steve McLendon. I am still finding this a little confusing. Cameron Heyward also saw just 5 defensive snaps Sunday. Both Al Woods and Will Allen saw 1 snap each...
