Something that former Steelers Head Coach Bill Cowher used to day, “get a hat on a hat”, is probably embedded in the minds of Steeler fans for all of eternity. We heard it so many times it was like a broken record, but he preached doing so because of the importance of beating your man, taking care of your responsibility on the field. Doing so leads to success, plain and simple. Football is a team game, all 11 guys doing their part, but in the end it’s a battle of attrition; who wants it more. When the Steelers travel to Denver for the season opener, the one on one matchups are going to be as important as ever. For the record, Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown, Max Starks, and Marcus Gilbert aren’t the only ones who have important matchups this weekend. Everybody’s job is important but these 4 especially are what we’ll focus on for now. Mike Wallace mentioned after practice how difficult it is to play against Champ Bailey.

Steelers WR Brown new "1A" in Pittsburgh offense

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown insists the team's receiving corps is so deep and talented there's no real need to establish a hierarchy.

Brown posted...

Steelers’ Wallace and others at increased injury risk early in season

The best case scenario for any NFL team is to have all hands on deck and everyone healthy for the season opener. While that doesn’t happen as often as we’d like, the potential for injury early in the season is always a risk to be mindful of regardless.  Healthy players certainly are not immune to injuries but those who have missed significant portions of time before hand generally...

The Pittsburgh Steelers: WR Mike Wallace will start against Denver Broncos?

The Pittsburgh Steelers plan on starting WR Mike Wallace when the team travels to Denver to play the Broncos in their season opener on Sunday night.

Amazing comebacks for Steelers’ Hampton, Starks, and Mendenhall

How quickly things change for the Steelers. Less than 9 months ago, we were all wondering if Max Starks, Rashard Mendenhall, and Casey Hampton would be able to play in the 2012 regular season. For that matter, if they were able to play, it certainly wouldn’t be in the season opener right? It used to be that a torn ACL was the end of the road, see ya in 12 months. Even one suffered...

Steelers' James Harrisson wont speak to the media until Friday
