Steel City Blitz:
The loss to the Minnesota Vikings in London was really the first time all year, four whole games to be exact, where the defense was the key reason this team dropped to 0-4.
Prior to this game and dating back to last season, it had been the offense that had been much maligned for the ineptness which led to the 8-8 season.
Something has become as clear as day with this offense and if I can see it, why can’t the coaches of the Steelers?
Maybe it’s because they aren’t supposed to notice and that’s the problem.
As was the case in the opening day loss to Tennessee, the losses to Cincy and Chicago and then again today, this offense works best when it uses three wide receivers, a tight end named Heath Miller and one running back. I know you have noticed this and if you haven’t then you are still seeing Franco and Rocky rumbling through the line.
Except this time there is no Franco and there is no Rocky and whoever is running the ball gets stopped for a two-yard gain.
The paradigm is all too...

According to a Louisville TV station WDRB there will be at least 26 NFL scouts in attendance, from 20 teams. Jacksonville has asked for three credentials, including one for Jaguars GM David Caldwell. Pittsburgh will also have its GM, Kevin Colbert, present. And Tampa Bay is sending Eric Stokes, the team’s director of scouting, the […]
During his Tuesday press conference, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin might have dropped a few hints as to what he thinks the starting offensive line might actually be Sunday against the New York Jets.
The Steelers of course acquired veteran tackle Levi Brown via a trade last week with the Arizona Cardinals and Tomlin called the move a "critical acquisition" during...
In news which seems to validate every caricature every said about the man, Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley is being used by a home builder who is accusing Haley of backing out of a million dollar house deal and, oddly enough, for bizarrely wrecking the home in question.
The news comes courtesy of steelersdepot.com, who reported the news from WPXI-TV.
The Steelers are struggling. Offensive coordinator Todd Haley is under fire for how badly Pittsburgh's offense has performed. And you have to wonder about his job security in just his second year under head coach Mike Tomlin.
Oh and he's being sued by a homebuilder who claims that Haley and his wife trashed the $1.4 million rental in which they were living after they already...

There are no more fun and games around the Pittsburgh Steelers’ locker room following the team’s 0-4 start. According to a report, head coach Mike Tomlin decided to take away the team’s play toys and won’t give them back until the team gets back on track. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Gerry Dulac reports that Tomlin removed […]
A bit of an overreaction, I doubt Playstation is the reason the Steelers are losing, but according to ESPN, Tomlin has banned all games (pool, ping-pong, cards, video games and etc) from the locker room.
I have to confirm if air hockey was also banned, if so, then Tomlin must be fired, it isn’t American to ban air hockey.
I am sure they will find a way to blame GTA V for this.
The Steelers are 19th in total offense and 31st in rushing yet Ben Roethlisberger is seeing progress on a weekly basis. He especially likes what he saw of rookie running back Le'Veon Bell in his NFL debut.
“I'm not going to say he was Adrian Peterson” Roethlisberger said. “But he showed me some glimpses of the things I see Adrian Peterson do. But I don't want him...
Obviously Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin is disappointed in his team’s winless season. It’s also obvious that Tomlin likes the word “Obviously” as he said it nearly thirty times during Tuesday’s press conference. Obviously.

Uh, let's be honest -- Steelers Coach Tomlin says "Obviously" a lot. Yep, yep, yep, yep, yep, yep, yep. I know. [Kissing Suzy Kolber]
Thanks for a few minutes.

Bill Cowher has done a great job not weighing in too much about the way Mike Tomlin has coached the team since he left his post as the head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers back in 2007. All of that is about to change when the Pitssburgh Steelers take on the New York Jets this Sunday. Is this the first step in getting Cowher to come back and coach the 0-4 Steelers. There is nothing...

An interesting statistical quirk that I have recently noticed is that thus far during the 2013 season, Ben Roethlisberger is getting more of his passing yards through the air—as opposed to after the catch—than he has in years, and perhaps more than he ever has in his career. This is not a good thing.
As it currently stands, the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback...
Pittsburgh Steelers (0-4) at New York Jets (3-2)
The bye week might have been exactly what the Steelers needed. They sit at 0-4, but they get as healthy as they can be during the bye, with veterans resting up and guys like Heath Miller and Le’Veon Bell getting extra time to get back to full strength. I still don’t think they’ll be as this bad all season. They’re getting destroyed...
At the current moment, if you go to deadspin.com you’ll notice our current head coach, Mike Tomlin in a nice montage of himself using the word ‘obviously.’
These are the usual things that happen when your normally successful team is 0-4.
What isn’t so usual is to have the man who held Tomlin’s position prior to him helping to call the game from the CBS broadcast booth when...
January 15, 2005. The Steelers were 15-1 in the 2004 season, winning 14 games in a row during Ben Roethlisberger's rookie year. Their first playoff game was a divisional round matchup at Heinz Field against the New York Jets.
The Jets were the 6-seed fresh off an upset over the San Diego Chargers in the first round due to clutch field goals by their placekicker Doug Brien...
