Steelers Lack of Urgency is Alarming

Earlier this season, Pittsburgh Steelers’ safety Ryan Clark suggested that perhaps many of his teammates had become too complacent and had an expectation of winning by just walking on the field. I saw some truth in his concerns then but now his statements could not be more accurate and they start with Mike Tomlin. Apparently the loss in Oakland wasn’t enough to awaken this team...

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...

Willie Colon could be out for rest of the season

If it isn't one thing, it's another as the Steelers will likely lose left guard Willie Colon with a knee injury, accordingly to Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
