All eyes will be on Pittsburgh Steelers second-year linebacker Sean Spence this week as the team must make a decision as to his 2013 status before Week 10.
Spence, who injured a hand upon his return to the practice field in Week 7, must be placed on the 53 man roster, waived, or put on injured reserve due to the rules of the PUP list being as the three week window opened for him once he began practicing.
During his Tuesday press conference, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was not asked about Spence, so we will have to wait and see if any news comes out this week from the media as to whether or not he is back participating.
The Steelers could easily find a spot for Spence on the 53 man roster even if he might be a few weeks away still from being able to contribute as the team could waive linebacker Kion Wilson once again. Wilson, who was promoted back to the 53 man roster last week from the practice squad, was one of the seven inactives this past Sunday in the loss to the Oakland Rai...

The Pittsburgh Steelers made a minor practice squad move on Wednesday as cornerback Devin Smith was signed and wide receiver Devon Wylie was released.
Wylie was added to the practice squad two weeks ago after rookie wide receiver Markus Wheaton suffered a broken pinky finger, so this is a good sign that the Steelers third-round draft pick will be back practicing this week after missing...
This week in an interview Big Ben Roethlisberger said that Tom Brady was the best quarterback in the NFL, but was he just setting the table to destruct the Patriots? “To me, he’s the best quarterback in the league and he’s done it for a long time. That’s no disrespect to some of these other […]

Pittsburgh Steelers punter Zoltan Mesko had another rocky performance Sunday in the loss to the Oakland Raiders and head coach Mike Tomlin addressed that Tuesday during his weekly press conference when asked about it.
"With Mesko, the punting has been very similar to how it's been the previous weeks and really how I kind of characterized it," said Tomlin. "He&...
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown wanted to apologize for two fourth-quarter plays he felt he let get away and let down his QB - Ben Roethlisberger in the Steelers' 21-18 loss against the Raiders. Brown is the team's most reliable receiver and a few weeks ago was demanding to get the ball more often, but last Sunday he was asking for forgiveness.
New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, now two games into his season, has a new ailment that kept him limited at Wednesday's practice. While he's seemingly clear (for now) with his previous back and forearm issues, many were questioning if, or rather when, Gronk would get injured again. The Patriots announced Wednesday that he has a hamstring injury, as well as...

The post Steelers change punters appeared first on Pro Football Zone.

The Steelers made a minimum of three mistakes in the last 2:44 of their 21-18 loss to the Raiders Sunday. One was a bonehead play by the quarterback, the others were made by the coaching staff. Clock management was the primary concern and rightly so. I wrote about it here and my co-host on The Terrible Podcast Dave Bryan wrote about it here and here.
Most of the attention...
The Steelers have announced that the team has released Zoltan Mesko.
Mesko was added before the start of the season after he was released from the New England Patriots. He ranked 31st in the NFL with a 36.7 yard average net per punt.
In his place, the Steelers have signed Mat McBriar, per Steelers.com:
The team added punter Mat McBriar, a 10-year veteran who played...
Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu is one of the best in the business. Want to see a highlight reel type of play? Watch him for a few minutes and chances are you are going to see one. Tack on the man's infamous hair and it's safe to say he is an icon--and it is not surprising if folks want to dress up like him for Halloween.
Wait--but this guy played like him...
Zoltan Mesko was brought in right before the start of the season and he replaced Drew Butler, and many thought the move would be an upgrade.
However, it appears that after some weak punting efforts, and a couple of errors in the Raiders game, that the Steelers may look to undue the Mesko-for-Butler move that they made.
Mesko has only averaged 42.4 yards per punt, and...
Former Patriot punter and former Most Interesting Man in the NFL award winner, Zoltan Mesko, was involved in some punter controversy in training camp. Rookie Ryan Allen outperformed him, and allowed the team to save $1 million by letting him go. Many fans were a bit upset, but Allen was performed great in his rookie season and it hasn't been much of a topic since.
Not surprisingly, it has come to this.
