Found September 19, 2012 on Steelers Depot:
If you happen to own Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger or wide receivers Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown in your fantasy league, you really should consider putting them in your lineup this week, as the Oakland Raiders have serious issues right now at the cornerback position thanks to injuries. In their week one game against the San Diego Chargers, the Raiders lost starter Ron Bartell for several weeks to a broken shoulder blade. To make matters worse, they lost their other starting cornerback Shawntae Spencer against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday for several weeks to a sprained Read more [...]

Ben Roethlisberger announces donation to Oakland PD

-B- The Steelers haven't been to Oakland since 2006 but Ben Roethlisberger is still making a name for himself there off the field by giving a grant to the Oakland PD's K-9 unit through his charity. It's not just Oakland though. Roethlsiberger will be donating to local K-9 units at every city the Steelers play a regular season away game at this year. That is very awesome...

Roethlisberger & Seymour Have Laughed Off 2010 Punch

The last time that the Pittsburgh Steelers faced the Oakland Raiders they handled them easily at Heinz Field. The 35-3 win was not without incident though as Raiders defensive end Richard Seymour was ejected for an open-handed punch to the face of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger just seconds after he threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders with just under...

Steelers Offense Should Drop Balancing Act Sunday

The Steelers have had a good balance of run and pass on offense through two weeks. However, the run game has been nonexistent while the passing game, led by Ben Roethlisberger, has been very successful. Heading into Sunday’s game the Steelers may want to go pass heavy in Oakland, but not for t ContinueThe post Steelers Offense Should Drop Balancing Act Sunday appeared first on SteelBlitz.

Steelers Offensive Line Breakdown – New York Jets – Week 2

The run blocking in this game was pretty bad and there were only about 4 plays in total where I thought all 5 linemen did their job well at the same time. If it is any consolation, I thought the pass protection overall was good, but a shorter passing game and quicker release by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger certainly helps this area out. PLAYER # TOT + - TOT % # RUN...

Steelers making strides towards championship contention

The Steelers defense picked up where it left off in Denver: surrendering long scoring drives. Luckily, the defense shored up after the second drive of the game to shut out the Jets the rest of the way. And while the offense is averaging 24 points per game so far, there is some work to be done there, yet. The running game was once again stagnant and the offensive line was leaky at...

LaMarr Woodley Will be Going Down to “South Park”

The hit comedy show is entering its 17th season and Woodley will join Ben Roethlisberger as the second Steeler to be portrayed on the show.

Steelers Jets Game Rewind: First Half Notes

I have finished my first five trips through the game tape of the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-10 win over the New York Jets and below are my notes from the first half of the game. The second half notes are being finished now and will be posted shortly. The bubble screen to start to Antonio Brown was a great call to try to loosen up the Jets right off the bat. Leonard Pope, Jerricho...

For the Steelers, the dreaded trap scenario looms large in week 3

No coach in the NFL will openly admit that an upcoming opponent is potentially a trap game. Doing so immediately gives bulletin board material to the other team and makes you appear that you are clearly superior. Even if that is the case it’s just not a can of worms that you want to open. Is this really a trap game though? The Steelers are still not at full strength either in...

Steelers Injury Report: Polamalu, Harrison, Miller, Gilbert, Dwyer, Wallace & Sanders DNP

The Pittsburgh Steelers were back on the practice field on Wednesday to begin preparing for their week 3 game this coming Sunday against the Oakland Raiders and the first injury participation report of the week is now out. Running back Jonathan Dwyer (toe), tackle Marcus Gilbert (groin), linebacker James Harrison (knee), tight end Heath Miller (abdomen), safety Troy Polamalu ...

ESPN Intern Fails Has Reached A New Level Of Worthless With Black Eli Manning

BC follower @misterfacetious sent us this dispatch: “I’m sure these will roll in. Mike Wallace aka Eli Manning. Eli, get out of the tanning bed!” This wouldn’t be so bad, but Wallace is a very, very black man. If it wouldn’ve been a lighter black guy like Hines Ward, this fail wouldn’t have been so epic. And how do you mistakenly get Eli’s career bio in there and mix...

Roger Goodell is an empty suit and a hypocrite

In 2010, when Roger Goodell suspended Ben Roethlisberger, there were a few rumblings.  In 2011, when the NFL owners locked out NFLPA members, there were a few more.  Now that the league is in the midst of a labor dispute with the referee’s union, the rumblings have become a full-throated roar.  The man we were [...]

Week 2 Fantasy Football Recap: Jets vs. Steelers

New York Jets @ Pittsburgh SteelersAfter blowing up in week 1 the New York Jets offense once again showed it's real face and struggled. The Steelers defense is a great unit but even more so the Jet's offense is a mediocre squad. The Steelers were able to secure an easy 27-10 victory over the Jets. Pittsburgh:Ben Roethlisberger (275 yds 2 TD 0 ints) looked like Big Ben, evading...
