Found September 23, 2013 on Steel City Blitz:
The Blitz is back on the air wrapping up the Steelers crushing loss in week 3 to the Bears, at Heinz Field on Sunday Night Football. While we planned on doing our usual breakdown of the game, talking player stats, who’s hot and who’s not, etc. we ended up parlaying into a State of the Steelers show. Join us as we talk about what is really ailing this team and how it can be fixed. Are changes really going to help this team and if so, what changes? What will it take for Ben to get back on his game? Is there hope for the ground attack when Le’Veon Bell gets into the lineup? How much of the 3 game slide this season is on the defense?  All that and much more on The Blitz!

Steelers Tape Breakdown: Dwyer Continues To Leave Yards On The Field With Missed Reads

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer had two great blitz pickups and two nice runs Sunday night against the Chicago Bears, but he could have had another big one in the game as well. Below is yet another example of Dwyer's inability to read blocks as he consistently leaves yards out on the field. It is getting tiring pointing these out. On first and ten from the Steelers...

Ben Roethlisberger questions rookie Le’Veon Bell's work ethic

The Pittsburgh Steelers are 0-3. A big reason for this dismal start is the lack of a running game that can drive home the point of the Steeler way. As the news trickles in that rookie Le’Veon Bell may return to the starting lineup after he tore a ligment in his right foot, one would think that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger would be thrilled.

Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger has no faith in Le’Veon Bell

Pittsburgh Steelers running back, Le’Veon Bell, is set to make his regular season debut in London, England on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.  As Josh Alper of NBCSports tells us, the most important man on the field for the Steelers, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, has zero faith in his RB.Roethlisberger had this to say of Bell:Honestly, I have no idea with him.  You can’t...

Ben Roethlisberger questions rookie Le'Veon Bell's work ethic

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell could return from a foot injury on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Early speculation indicated that the rookie would likely be held out at least through the team’s Week 5 bye, so the prospect of Bell playing this weekend makes it seem like he has been working hard and […]

Ben Roethlisberger Says He Isn’t Sure He Can Count RB Le’Veon Bell

Wow Ben Roethlisberger has some nerve. I can remember Steelers center Alan Faneca once publicly questioning if a rookie quarterback named BenRoethlisberger was the guy to lead the Steelers. Two Super Bowl appearances later, I think Roethlisberger has proven that he can play.  So it was a bit shocking that Big Ben would publicly blast a rookie and question his effort and his skills...

It’s time for the Steelers to fire Todd Haley

The Pittsburgh Steelers are a mess, but mostly on offense and that’s why they must fire Todd Haley. Now I will admit I’ve never liked Todd Haley as an offensive coordinator or a head coach, and I don’t take much satisfaction in calling for any person to lose their job, but this is a business. And so far Todd Haley has taken what Bruce Arians’ left and turned it into one...

Mike Tomlin won’t be giving Steelers any rah-rah speeches

The Pittsburgh Steelers are off to their worst start since 2002.  Coach Mike Tomlin expects his team to be focused on getting themselves out of their current 0-3 hole. “I’m not going to encourage them to,” Tomlin said 

Steelers Fantasy Stat Projections Versus Bears – Week 3 – 2013

The Pittsburgh Steelers will take on the Chicago Bears Sunday night and below are my fantasy football stat projections for the black and gold offensive players. Feel free to add your own projections in the comments below. Ben Roethlisberger -  30 attempts, 21 completions, 253 yards, 2 touchdowns, 0 interceptions. The Steelers offense needs to stay out of third and long situations...

One Pump Fake Too Many

Despite three turnovers and a 24-3 deficit, the Steelers made this a game. Cris Collinsworth will tell you this is entirely due to Ben Roethlisberger pump faking, but it was Ben’s fake in the open field that almost resulted in the fourth turnover of the night for Pittsburgh. Somehow, the ball bounced back his way and the game remains close enough that Ben will have to screw up...

Steelers' turnover-prone offense good match for Vikings

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Legend of the Pittsburgh Steelers has been built on its ferocious "Steel Curtain" defense over the years. Pittsburgh still ranks among the league leaders in fewest yards allowed, a category it's placed in the top five in the league each of the past five seasons. But the Steelers are the only team in the league this season without a takeaway...

Foot healed, Steelers RB Bell ready to get going

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell will make his regular-season debut on Sunday hoping to provide a jolt for his winless team. Bell hasn't played since spraining his right foot in an exhibition game against Washington on Aug. 19. Pittsburgh's running game has faltered during an 0-3 start. The Steelers are 31st in the NFL in yards rushing per game. ...

Ben Roethlisberger, Eli Manning: Parallel careers

Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Joe Flacco and Peyton Manning have all won the Super Bowl once. Tom Brady, Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger have each won the top prize multiple times. Those are the headliners, the superstars, the marquee players of the NFL. Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks are what the NFL’s marketing machine is built on. They are the Disney World group. Each of them...

Steelers need hard core ground game to return

The Pittsburgh Steelers, who take on the Vikings this coming Sunday in England, have always been known for their hard core nature. It has always been a hard nose running game and then a “Steel Curtain” on defense. These were what they used to win all of those Super Bowls in the 70’s. They have also won two Super Bowls recently on the shoulders of their quarterback Ben Roethlisberger...

Pittsburgh Steelers Versus Chicago Bears – Second Half Recap

By Matthew Marczi The slow start to the season for the Pittsburgh Steelers dragged to a crawl early on in the first half of their third game against the Chicago Bears as they quickly fell behind 17-0, and then 24-3. However, a 33-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Brown helped spark some life into the lethargic Steelers, who finished the second quarter down two touchdowns and looking...
