The Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the San Diego Chargers Sunday 34-24 and below are my first half notes from the game with the second half notes to follow soon. The quick screen to Mike Wallace on the first play was an excellent call to get Ben Roethlisberger an easy first throw and Wallace involved in the game early. I called for such a thing in my pregame 7 keys article as well. The next two throws by Roethlisberger were very bad, however, and the offense goes four plays and out. Both Jason Worilds and Ziggy Hood are easily driven out of the play for a big Chargers run to start their first Read more [...]

Steelers: Boos May Have Woken up Mike Wallace

With three good games to finish out the 2012 season Mike Wallace could break 1,00 receiving yards for the third straight year and break, or match, his career high for touchdown receptions. However, anyone who has watched the Steelers thirteen games this season can tell you that Wallace is not having the kind of year that his statistics may make you think he is having. During the...

Ben Roethlisberger: Steelers deserved to get booed

The Pittsburgh Steelers embarrassed themselves during a 34-24 Week 14 home loss to the San Diego Chargers last Sunday, and the fans even booed the team at different points in the game. The boos were most noticeable after receiver Mike Wallace dropped a pass during the second quarter when the team was only down 3-0. Even though Wallace finished with seven catches for 112 yards and...

Steelers WR Wallace focused on efforts, not boos

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace says he's focusing on the final three weeks of the season, not his uncertain future with the team or the booing he received during last week's loss to San Diego. Wallace said he understands why some people are ''out to get'' him following his lengthy holdout during training camp. He returned to the Steelers without...

Roethlisberger Chose Not To Wear Custom-made Protective Vest Against Chargers

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger made his return to the field this past Sunday after missing the previous three games due to a rib and shoulder injury suffered in the game against the Kansas City Chiefs and the belief was that he would be wearing a custom-made protective vest and shoulder pads that included Kevlar padding to help protect him. As it turns out, he...

Ben Roethlisberger scoffs at Cowboys as America’s Team; calls Steelers World’s Team

How many times have we all asked the question of ‘do the Dallas Cowboys still qualify as being good enough to be called America’s Team?’ Despite the Steelers ugly loss to the Chargers upon his return to the lineup, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger took a dig at Dallas’ title when asked about Tony Romo.  Please Click Here To Read This Article & Answer A Poll That Asks...

Roethlisberger’s Return Didn’t Help The Steelers Win

Ben Roethlisberger returned to the Pittsburgh Steelers starting line up wearing all most as much armor under his jersey as a bomb squad worker. The Steelers fell to the San Diego Chargers in Roethlisberger’s return leaving the Steelers fans stunned that their guy Ben Roethlisberger couldn’t pull off the magic the team needed to move up in the race for the AFC North after Charlie...

Ben Roethlisberger says the Steelers are “The Worlds Team”

While talking to the media today after preparing to face off against the Dallas Cowboys this week,  Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said if the Cowboys are “America’s Team,” the Steelers are “The Worlds Team.” Ok, Roethlisberg is going a little too far, but I do agree that the Steelers are well represented around the United States.  I probably know...

Rivers, Chargers Bolt to Win over Steelers

So much for Ben Roethlisberger's triumphant return. Ditto the notion the Pittsburgh Steelers had finally turned the corner. Rhythm disrupted by a relentless San Diego pass rush, Roethlisberger struggled early and the Steelers never recovered in a listless -- not to mention perplexing -- 34-24 loss on Sunday.

Steelers playoff hopes alive but if they keep playing this poorly it won’t matter

The Steelers continue to receive gift after gift from the rest of the NFL. Even the loss today at Heinz Field, 34-24 to the lowly Chargers still leaves them in control of the 6th seed in the playoffs by virtue of the Ravens and Bengals both losing. I’ve said it many times this year, if the Steelers have 9 lives they are burning through at a rapid pace. As Mike Tomlin said in his...

Why Players Should be Booed For Poor Performance

Much is being said about the fact the Heinz Field faithful booed Mike Wallace after another dropped pass clanged off his hands early during Sunday’s 34-24 loss to San Diego. Chances were good that Wallace would have taken it to the house on the play, so the drop cost the Steelers some much needed offensive performance.Why shouldn’t fans boo poor performance? Wallace wants paid...

Beating Dallas Means More Than Just a Step Toward the Playoffs

Whether you were alive in the ’70′s or not, you damn well better know about the rivalry that ensued between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys. So-called “America’s Team” full of glamour and filled with a prim and proper style up against the “Men of Steel” from the harsh, dirty environment of the rust belt. Twice they would meet in two of the greatest Super...

Channing Tatum Is The Reason That The Pittsburgh Steelers Lost Yesterday

Even with Ben Roethlisberger back from injury, the Pittsburgh Steelers were no match for the San Diego Chargers yesterday, what with their “Holy crap, we should play better so we aren’t all fired or traded” realization and effort. The Chargers defeated the Steelers 34-24 in a game that was much worse than the score indicates, with Philip Rivers tossing three touchdowns and...

Rashard Mendenhall suspended for not showing up

The Pittsburgh Steelers suspended running back Rashard Mendenhall for the week, including Sunday's game in Dallas for what the team said was "conduct detrimental to the team." The reason for the suspension, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, is Mendenhall did not show up for the Steelers game against the San Diego Chargers at Heinz Field.  Even though Mendenhall...

Steelers-Cowboys Preview

While the Dallas Cowboys look to continue their playoff push, they might have to do it without their top offensive threat. The Pittsburgh Steelers have quarterback Ben Roethlisberger back, but need a win to hold on to their AFC wild-card spot.
