“We played sub-par today, but got a win. We need to step up next week and get better — a lot better.” — James Harrison
If these Browns were a one-term president, they’d be James Buchanan. … [A] team where as many players (nine) had concussions as scored touchdowns this season. — Terry Pluto
For the twelfth year in a row, there are at least five teams in the NFL playoffs who weren’t in them the year before. And for the ninth year in a row, of course, one of those teams isn’t the Cleveland Browns, which we’ve known for awhile now. So, yesterday:
The banged-up Steelers didn’t seem to know whether they wanted to play football or not. As it turned out, yesterday’s game wound up completely meaningless to their playoff positioning thanks to the Ravens win over the Bengals. With Baltimore out to a 17-3 halftime lead in Cincinnati and with the Steelers playing a hobbled starting quarterback and center, and already having lost starting running back Rashard Mendenhall to a knee in
BEST OF MAXIM
Isaac Redman replaced an injured Rashard Mendenhall and ran for a touchdown as Pittsburgh limped into the AFC playoffs with a 13-9 win Sunday over Cleveland, the Steelers' 16th victory in 17 games against the Browns.
Redman scored on a 7-yard run in the third quarter for the Steelers (12-4), who finished tied with Baltimore for first in the AFC North but lost the tiebreaker...

It's why Tomlin didn't give Clark the option.
The Steelers (12-4) will begin their quest for a second straight AFC title without Clark, who will be held out of the lineup as a precaution due to a sickle-cell trait that becomes...
Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark will not be allowed to be in Sunday's wild card game at the Denver Broncos.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said it was an easy decision to sit Clark, who has the sickle cell trait and had a violent reaction to play in Denver's high altitude in 2007.
Clark had to undergo surgery to have his spleen and gall bladder removed. He lost more than...
Steelers Safety Troy Polamlau made another one of his amazing timing plays against the Cleveland Browns. Polamalu timed the snap perfectly and broke through the Browns offensive line before they even got out of their stances. He grabbed Seneca Wallace and dragged him to the ground for the loss.
The NFL is giving Polamalu a tackle for a loss on the play. That is some garbage...
As expected, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger started the season finale against Cleveland despite a high ankle sprain.
