Conspiracy Theories About Dwyer are Making the Rounds

Steeler Nation did not take the dismissal of Jonathan Dwyer very well this holiday weekend. Dwyer himself did not take it very well either and in some ways, who could blame him? He returned as the leading rusher from last season and came into camp this summer in the best shape of his life but it wasn’t enough to save him. I wrote earlier this week that Dwyer’s cutting was more...

Jonathan Dwyer Most Disappointing Of Final Cuts By The Steelers

When the Pittsburgh Steelers selected Jonathan Dwyer in the sixth round of the 2010 draft, I thought he would end up being a steal. Through his first two seasons with the team however, Dwyer hadn’t shown much other than short flashes while running for 151 total yards. That, coupled with constant reports of Dwyer showing up to camp out of shape, didn’t help the young running back...

Steelers Unlikely To Trade Jonathan Dwyer

Ex-Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer can add balance and power to suitor's roster

Jonathan Dwyer’s release from the Pittsburgh Steelers was one of the surprising moves in the NFL in teams’ attempts to get down to a 53-man roster. Dwyer was expected to be a utility back in the Steelers ground game, which looks stouter now than it has in some time.

Steelers ready to shake off winless preseason

Don't count quarterback Ben Roethlisberger among those concerned about the Pittsburgh Steelers' winless preseason. Roethlisberger says having his team go 0-4 is hardly a problem. In fact, Roethlisberger says it may help the Steelers because it means the attention will shift to other teams, leaving Pittsburgh under the radar. Roethlisberger and most of the starters took...

Cuts Like A Knife: Pit Throws Jonathan To The Dwaiver Dwyer

Some things gotta hurt more then others.  Like when you’re at the club and all the girls keep passing you up left and right at the bar and then finally, when all the hot guys are gone and you’re left there competing against the doofy looking guy with the Bill Gates haircut and glasses who’s wearing a sweater vest and you say to yourself ‘man, the next girl’s just gotta...

Season Preview: The Steelers Will Stick to the ‘Standard’ in 2013

Mike Tomlin’s mantra for years now has been ‘the standard is the standard.’ The standard he speaks is of is about winning, players stepping up in huge situations and guys filling in for starters without missing a beat.

Rule #1 of punt returns: don’t catch anything inside the 5 yard line.  Rule #2: don’t run backwards into the endzone.  I can only imagine Mike Tomlin blowing a gasket on this play, even though it was just preseason.  Check out the GIF below: Jadeveon Clowney Gets a Cheap Shot From Behind (GIF) Robert Nkemdiche is 285lbs and You Better Get Out of His Way On a Fake Punt (GIF)
