Below are my second half notes from the Pittsburgh Steelers 34-24 loss Sunday to the San Diego Chargers. Here are my first half notes in case you missed them.
The 2nd and 9 wide receiver screen the Chargers called on their opening possession of the second half was a great call with Keenan Lewis playing so far off.

The Chargers convert their next 3rd and short via another out route with Cortez Allen in coverage. Allen and Jason Worilds Read more [...]

What exactly is the mindset of the 2012 Pittsburgh Steelers, now with just 3 games left on the schedule and the playoffs getting closer by the day? Are they truly a confident team like we always hear them talk about, or is there some doubt in the locker room with their identity and what they are capable of? It would be hard to blame them if there are doubts about the game plan every...
That ‘must-win’ game the Pittsburgh Steelers already knew they had in Dallas just got bigger if there is such a possibility. With the Cincinnati Bengals’ win over Philadelphia last night, the Steelers now face the prospect of ‘having’ to win to get the advantage back going into next week’s huge tilt against the Bengals in Heinz Field. When you put things in perspective...
The Pittsburgh Steelers wrapped up their practice preparations on Friday for their Sunday road game against the Dallas Cowboys and the Friday injury report is now out.
Pretty much as expected, cornerback Cortez Allen (groin) did not practice on Friday and he was listed as doubtful as a result. Allen injured his groin last week in the loss to the San Diego Chargers and is expected...
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Byron Leftwich is not on the injury report this week for the first time since he injured his ribs in the 13-10 loss the Baltimore Ravens back in Week 11. Although he has apparently returned to full health he has not returned to his spot on the quarterback depth chart as Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports via Twitter that Charlie Batch...
As the veteran member of the Pittsburgh Steelers' otherwise-youthful cornerbacks, Ike Taylor enjoys being among the first- and second-year players at his position meetings.
''I feel like they keep my young,'' Taylor said. ''Especially with the new young music coming up, the clothes, shoes, all that kind of stuff.''
This week, it's much more...
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...
Dan Rooney is coming home for good.
Timothy McNulty of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting on Thursday that Rooney will resign as U.S. ambassador to Ireland on Friday after serving three plus years in Dublin. The move has been expected to be coming for some time now.
The 80-year-old Steelers chairman emeritus returned to the US just last week after learning about the sudden...

Below is the week 13 offensive line breakdown for the Pittsburgh Steelers loss to the San Diego Chargers this past Sunday.
Tweet The good news for the San Diego Chargers is they’re in second place in the AFC West. The bad news is a brutal middle-of-the-season stretch, where they went 1-7, has the Chargers at 5-8 and leaves the team with little chance of making the playoffs. It has also contributed to quite a few empty seats [...]

Last season, Guyton played in 13 games with six starts for the Patriots and made 47 tackles and one interception. Guyton adds depth for the Chargers at linebacker...
