James Harrison’s Agent Admits Linebacker Has Suffered A Setback

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports Thursday morning that Bill Parise, the agent for Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison, has admitted that his client has suffered yet another setback with his left knee. It was reported on Wednesday that Harrison left the Steelers practice facility prior to the team working on Wednesday after his knee did respond well...

Four Things We Know About The Steelers After Three Weeks

It might be a bit of a rush job to judge a team after just three weeks of action, but in a 16 game season, it’s somewhat justifiable. The Steelers stand 1-2 on the season, losing a tough one on the road to the Broncos, handling the Jets rather easily at home and then dropping a disappointing game on the road against the Raiders. Here are four things we know about the Steelers so...

Steelers’ Ryan Clark takes proactive stance on replacement officials

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. Now if the Steelers were to win it we certainly wouldn’t do that would we? Seriously though, nary a game goes by without at least one controversial...

Raiders Cut Block On Steelers DE Ziggy Hood Was Legal

Several have emailed me asking me if the cut block performed by Oakland Raiders right tackle Willie Smith on Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Ziggy Hood late in the Sunday game was an illegal chop block. If you remember, I posted the differences between a legal cut block and an illegal chop block following the Steelers week 1 loss last year to the Baltimore Ravens and I am reposting...

As Steelers struggle, Roethlisberger shines

Don't blame quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for Pittsburgh's slow start. Roethlisberger has been nearly unstoppable during the first three weeks of the season, averaging over 300 yards a game and throwing eight touchdowns against just one interception. He's currently second in the NFL in quarterback rating and has proven to be a quick study of offensive coordinator Todd...

Steelers TE Weslye Saunders Not Allowed To Return Until After Eagles Game

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Weslye Saunders will not be available for the week 5 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. 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. https://twitter.com/Wes_Saunders88/status/251112222099640321 ...

The root of the Steelers loss to the Raiders

The final score was 31-34 in Oakland, which is a place the Pittsburgh Steelers generally play poorly. However, if the Steelers were going to lose in Oakland most would have expected an offense that couldn’t move the ball while giving up touchdowns on special teams and turnovers. While there were turnovers and special teams were leaky, that wasn’t why the Steelers lost the game...

Steelers Larry Foote Reportedly Tells Replacement Refs You should Kill Yourselfs

  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 [...] [[ This is a content summary only. Visit my website for full links, other...

Pittsburgh Steelers: Week 4 NFL Power Rankings (#11)

Last week: 6 (-5) Record: 1-2 The Steelers suck on the road. Over the last year plus on the road, they are -43, including playoffs, and +137 at home. They beat Indianapolis by just 3, Kansas City by just 4, and Cleveland by just 3 last year and now they lost to Oakland. They also really miss James Harrison and especially Troy Polamalu. That’s not all him, but a lot of that is him...

Mathew Stafford dealing with a hip injury

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Detroit Lions quarterback Mathew Stafford is dealing with a hip injury and there’s a good chance that he doesn’t practice much this week, but still plays on Sunday. “I would be surprised if he practiced Wednesday or Thursday, but ultimately, when the game rolls around, he’s a tough guy to count out. The injury looks to be more of a hip...

Mays was fined $50,000 by the league and given a one game suspension for the hit. Mays was asked after the game if he expected to be fined for the hit, he said: "Oh yeah. I'm expecting that.

Report: NFL, NFLRA strike a deal

According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen via Adam Schefter, the NFL and NFLRA have come to agreement on a new deal that would enable to regular officials to be back on the field for this weekend's games.

Aaron Hernandez reportedly healing quicker than expected

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez’s ankle is healing quicker than expected. We still don’t know when Hernandez will be back, but I would believe that will be within the next couple of weeks.

Report: NFL may suspend Broncos linebacker Joe Mays

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the NFL may suspend Denver Broncos linebacker Joe Mays for his helmet to helmet hit on Texans quarterback Matt Schaub during yesterday’s game.  He’ll at least get a fine for sure.
