Found October 11, 2012 on Steelers Depot:
The Pittsburgh Steelers look to get their first road win of the 2012 season when they take on the Tennessee Titans Thursday night in Nashville. Below are 7 things to watch for specifically in this game along with my prediction at the end of it. In case you missed it, here is the Wednesday podcast preview of the game that features a great interview with Titans beat writer David Boclair of The Nashville City Paper. More Middesome - Last week I suggested that the Steelers run right up the gut against the Philadelphia Eagles because the film showed that they were most vulnerable there and that they Read more [...]

Steelers Release TE Weslye Saunders

The Pittsburgh Steelers made a surprise move today as reports that they have decided to release second-year tight end Weslye Saunders. Saunders returned to the team on Monday after serving his four gamer suspension for testing positive for a banned substance. It was believed by many that veteran Leonard Pope would be the odd man out as his playing time has decreased...

Steelers TE Weslye Saunders Will Have To Wait Another Week To Make Season Debut

The Pittsburgh Steelers decided not to activate second year tight end Weslye Saunders to the 53 man roster this week, so that means the South Carolina product will have to wait another week until he makes his 2012 season debut. Saunders was forced to miss the first four games after he was suspended this past February for testing positive for a banned substance. The Steelers requested...

Hard Work By Ziggy Hood Pays Off With Sack Against Eagles

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons certainly had a great game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday and I thought the defensive line, particularly defensive end Ziggy Hood, had a better showing in the game as well.To illustrate how the hard work of Hood resulted in him getting a sack in the game, we need not look any further than the Eagles opening offensive possession...

Big Ben Steelers' new passing leader

Ben Roethlisberger has passed Terry Bradshaw as the Pittsburgh Steelers' career passing leader, and he needed fewer games to reach that mark. Roethlisberger came into Thursday night's game with Tennessee needing 286 yards to tie Bradshaw's 27,989 yards passing. Bradshaw did that in 168 games, and Thursday night was Roethlisberger's 119th career game. The current...

Pittsburgh Steelers laying 5.5 points on the road against Tennessee

The Pittsburgh Steelers will try and win consecutive games for the first time this season when they travel to Tennessee to take on the Titans Thursday night. According to the Week Six NFL odds, the Steelers are favored by 5.5 points with the over/under listed at 42.5.Pittsburgh was boosted in their 16-14 win over the Eagles last week with the return of key contributors on both sides...

Roethlisberger Hits 300 Yards in Loss To Titans

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger recorded his second 300-yard game of the season Thursday against the Titans, throwing for 363 yards on 24-of-40 passing with a touchdown and a pick.Fantasy Spin:Roethlisberger has only thrown two TD passes in his last two games after connecting for eight scores in his first three. Still, Pittsburgh is clearly a pass-first team -- Roethlisberger...

Rashard Mendenhall now has an Achilles injury

Alex Flanagan of the NFL Network reported that Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall has been sitting out most of tonight’s game against the Titans with an Achilles injury.Mendenhall’s return is questionable for tonight.

Isaac Redman Leaves with Knee Injury

Steelers running back Isaac Redman left Thursday's game against the Titans with a knee injury.Fantasy Spin:Redman took a helmet to the knee and is questionable to return. The running back had 14 yards on five carries and 105 yards on four catches prior to exiting. Rashard Mendenhall also left the game and Jonathan Dwyer was inactive so the Steelers are going to have to rely on...

Steelers fan invades field during game, corralled by pink-clad security (photo)

(Photo: George Walker IV, The Tennessean) The Pittsburgh Steelers — or perhaps more accurately, the team’s fans — probably figured heading into Thursday night’s match-up with the Tennessee Titans that the somewhat underperforming squad (although the team has been devastated by injuries) would begin to turn around the season courtesy of what they reasonably envisioned [...]

Kenny Britt's funny interview after game

“Aw man.”“Aw man.”We’ve seen funny press conferences and interviews before (the best being Ellis Lankster), but we’ve never seen one like this. In a short 90-second interview after last night’s Titans-Steelers game, Kenny Britt successfully started off every reply with the phrase.We can’t tell if this was the result of a locker room bet/dare or if Britt was just so...

Kendall Wright has been more impressive then both Blackmon and Floyd

Last night, Kendall Wright caught six passes for 71 yards in the Titans’ Week 6 win. Wright led the Titans in both categories, and he is becoming one of the league’s most productive rookie receiver’s. Wright does his best work when the quarterback can get him the ball in space. He had several huge receptions last night and was a huge factor in the win. He has out performed...

Jamie Harper scores early TD for Titans to their long term detriment

As much as Xs and Os are a part of coaching, player management and motiviation is an essential element as well. Tonight, Titans coach Mike Munchak missed a golden opportunity to help his starting running back break out of a slump. Chris Johnson has done very little to help himself, his image, or his team since his holdout to begin the 2011 season and he certainly hasn’t contributed...
