Steel City Blitz:
If Mike Tomlin were a Major League Baseball player he’d be in a slump of epic proportions. He’s not of course but his decision-making of late has been anything less than a home run let alone a base hit. From benching every running back that fumbled the football to his odd decisions to go for long field goals, call for fake field goals and go on fourth down at mid-field, Tomlin has baffled us all at times.
This week in Baltimore he will be under scrutiny more than ever because of the injury problems the Steelers have combined with their current position in the AFC North Division.
In yesterday’s weekly press conference, Tomlin was his typical self. Bits and pieces of information and more cliches’ than a high school research paper. But if you listened closely to his comments and to the injury report, it’s obvious to me what direction the Steelers are going in on Sunday against their most-hated rival.
With Marcus Gilbert going on injured reserve and Mike Adams on the shelf with an ankle...

There were so many things that went wrong for the Steelers, in the week 12 loss to the Browns, not the least of which was the 6 fumbles (4 of them lost) by the running backs. No sense going back and reliving the 3 interceptions by Charlie Batch and the final fumble on the last drive of the game; but hey, who’s counting?
For the last month or so Mike Tomlin has preached about going...

Could there be a Pennsylvania football curse?
The Pittsburgh Steelers could be on pace to sink as fast as the Philadelphia Eagles.
The two situations are comprised of very different circumstances yet their end result could be the same in that neither team will cash in their post-season expectations.

Yesterday I mentioned Pittsburgh Steelers’ Head Coach Mike Tomlin was in a no-win situation heading into the contest with the Baltimore Ravens this Sunday. I realized a long time ago that Steelers’ QB Ben Roethlisberger was in a similar situation regarding his health.

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday during his press conference that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw on Monday and that the door was still open for him to play Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.

Steelers QB Big Ben Roethlisberger spoke to the media on Thursday and updated his status for Sunday’s game in Baltimore. He didn’t box himself in one way or the other, but did leave the door open just as Mike Tomlin mentioned earlier this week.
“Yeah, there’s always a chance. We’ll go out and re-evaluate it again today. See how it feels after today. I can play through...

A little over a week ago, the Pittsburgh Steelers had a chance to tie the Baltimore Ravens for the lead in the AFC North Division. Today, two losses later, they prepare to go into Baltimore with a chance to be officially eliminated from that title race.

Below are the initial week 12 offensive and defensive snap counts from the Pittsburgh Steelers 20-14 loss to the Cleveland Browns Sunday.
Thanks to his two fumbles in the game Rashard Mendenhall only played 8 snaps in total, so basically you can say that he was benched. Isaac Redman saw only 5 snaps in the game and the same goes for him. Head coach Mike Tomlin obviously wanted...
