Found October 30, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
The Pittsburgh Steelers won't have multiple starters again this week, as coach Mike Tomlin ruled out injured strong safety Troy Polamalu and right tackle Marcus Gilbert for Sunday's game. The Steelers visit the Giants this week, but Tomlin said the team is also unsure which running backs might be available this week. Jonathan Dwyer rushed for 100 yards in back-to-back games but came out of Sunday's victory over the Redskins with a quadriceps injury. Rashard Mendenhall was cleared for limited individual work but is unlikely to practice in the team portion of Wednesday's workout as he recovers from an Achilles strain. Polamalu's calf injury might limit him for most of November. He was injured Week 1 at Denver and tried to return Oct. 7 after three weeks, including the bye, to recover. He tweaked the injury in that Week 5 start against the Eagles and Tomlin hasn't provided specifics since labeling his injury "significant."

Mike Tomlin Press Conference – Giants – Tuesday – Week 9

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin met the media on Tuesday for his weekly press conference to talk about the upcoming game against the New York Giants, injuries, and more. Below are the talking points from what Tomlin had to say along with the audio. Tomlin called the performance against the Washington Redskins the most complete one so far this season, but obviously it...

Wallace’s Post-Game Comments Just the Beginning?

It may seem like a decade ago, but it really was just this past summer and entire preseason where Pittsburgh Steelers’ wideout Mike Wallace sat out in a contract dispute with the team. Wallace certainly didn’t do himself any favors with the fan base, but I think in general, many fans understood what Wallace was doing as other players in the league went down with injuries in the...

Roethlisberger reaping benefits of the “dink and dunk” Steelers offense

It’s funny how controversial this term, “dink and dunk” can be when it comes to football these days. It’s not that there is anything wrong with it, at least I don’t think so because the ultimate goal in professional sports is to win no matter what. If it’s short passing; fine, if it’s going deep … Continue reading »

Ben Roethlisberger Hits Ref in the Head With Pass (Video)

Big Ben Roethlisberger just plunking the referee in the head with a pass like it ain't no thing.  Don't make a bad call against the Steelers or you know what you're up against.  I just can't wait until he tries to pull that on Ed Hochuli and Ed tosses him in the torture rack until he taps out.   Video of the pass below if you missed it. P.S. Am I the...

Steelers right back in mix after drubbing Redskins

The Pittsburgh Steelers are playing so well at the moment, even Mike Tomlin is getting optimistic. The typically gruff coach allowed his team is heading in the right direction after a relatively easy 27-12 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday. The Steelers held explosive rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III in check and limited the NFL's top rushing team to a season-low...

Steelers Versus Redskins Game Rewind – First Half Notes

The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Washington Redskins 27-12 Sunday at Heinz Field and below are my first half notes from the game with the second half notes to follow soon. A nice start by Jonathan Dwyer as he turns a possible stuff into positive yardage. The fake bubble screen that resulted in an explosive play to Heath Miller was nicely designed and well executed. The first catch...

Steelers Winners And Losers – Week 8 – Redskins

The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Washington Redskins 27-12 Sunday at Heinz Field and are now 4-3 on the season. Below are the players, or group of players, that I thought had winning performances in the game and 3 more players that deserve a little slap on the wrist. Ben Roethlisberger - Roethlisberger was surgical-like from the very beginning of the game on his way to a 24-of-33...

Emmanuel Sanders fake injury being evaluated

Pittsburgh Steeler wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders is stating that he will be meeting with the NFL office in regards to a leg cramp he developed in the huddle which saved the Steelers a timeout in a win over the Cincinnati Bengals.  There is no word on the type of injury he will fake to get

Sam Rosen introduces Pittsburgh Steelers as "Penguins"

As you can see in the above video, Fox announcer Sam Rosen introduced the Pittsburgh Steelers yesterday as the "Penguins" as they were running onto the field. The throwback uniforms are clearly ridiculous, so perhaps Rosen was just weirded out by them. I mean, I can't really blame him if he was. They are possibly the worst alternate uniforms I've ever seen in the...
