Found November 02, 2012 on SteelerAddicts:
NFL teams, and really I think most sports teams are creatures of habit. You hear all the time about coaches and players preferring to stay in a routine during the week whenever possible. When confronted with a unique situation they’ll downplay the change whenever possible but still, players are human too and have to adjust. The Steelers this week will have to jump out of that comfort zone and find a way to deal with the circumstances dealt to them for their road game in New York this Sunday. Obviously the Giants, living in New York, have much more to deal with over a longer period of time than the Steelers do, but still it’s something different for everyone. Due to Hurricane Sandy, the Steelers were not able to find a hotel to stay at so they will have to fly into New York on Sunday morning, have a pregame meal and then take a bus over as reported by Steelers.com – NFL teams normally leave for away games no later than Saturday afternoon, but the Steelers instead will leave Pittsburg...

THE WALKING DEAD

Hines Ward to play zombie on TV show

Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward will have a cameo role this season in the hit AMC show, "The Walking Dead." Ward will play a zombie of course and the 7 minute video below has all of the details. The 36-year old Ward, who is now an NFL analyst for NBC Sports, had over 12,000 receiving yards in his career for Steelers and has never been shy when a camera...

Is Antonio Brown Paying For The Emmanuel Sanders Cramp?

While I was not a fan of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown backpedaling 20-yards into the end zone on the punt return last week against the Washington Redskins, I think him being fined $10,000 is way too harsh. To put that in perspective, the Baltimore Ravens were fined $20,000 by the NFL this past week for previously not listing free safety Ed Reed on the injury...

Steelers Injury Report: Jonathan Dwyer Limited, LaMarr Woodley Remains Sidelined

The Pittsburgh Steelers resumed practice on Thursday as they prepare to take on the New York Giants Sunday at MetLife Stadium. The Thursday injury report is now out and it shows that linebacker LaMarr Woodley (hamstring), linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring) and running back Baron Batch (shin) did not practice. The status of Woodley heading into the weekend now appears to...

Lack Of Deep Balls Might Be Helping Mike Wallace More Than He Thinks

Sure, the deep passes to Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace are down so far this season under the direction of new offensive coordinator Todd Haley, but he is still on pace to have a solid season, and the process might just be increasing his market value as well. Despite the lack of deep receptions, the Steelers fourth year receiver has 36 catches on the season and...

Steelers D rallying around coordinator Dick LeBeau

The players on the Pittsburgh Steelers defense liken Hall of Fame coordinator Dick LeBeau to a father figure. When the critics started chirping the 75-year-old LeBeau was losing his touch after the Steelers got off to a slow start, his players rallied around him. The proof is on the field. Nearing the season's midway point, Pittsburgh (4-3) is second in the NFL in yards allowed...

Steelers Defensive Struggles May Be Due to Youth Not Age

Everyone has heard the talk the last two years about how the Steelers defense is too old and slow and how they will no longer be good enough to win games, but it doesn’t seem to be the age on the defense that is causing the problem. In fact, it may be just the opposite the Steelers defense may ContinueThe post Steelers Defensive Struggles May Be Due to Youth Not Age appeared first on SteelBlitz.

“All Signs Point To” Isaac Redman Starting For The Steelers

Mike Bires tweets that Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer missed Friday’s practice with a quad injury and adds that “all signs point to” Isaac Redman getting the start against the Giants this weekend. With RB Jonathan Dwyer sitting out today, al signs point to Isaac Redman starting for the Steelers. #steelers — Mike Bires (@mikebires) November 2, 2012   Rashard Mendenhall...

Sir Isaac Redman To Start?

That’s Sir Isaac Redman to you Juan… Both Jonathan Dwyer and Rashard Mendenhall are both looking doubtful for Sunday’s tilt VS the Giants.  Isaac Redman will be the defacto starter with a mix of Batch and Rainey. Unless Dwyer heals quickly and can give it a go, you have to take him out of your lineup.  Redman is far from a sure thing, but if you are desperate enough in a...

Steelers flying into Newark on Sunday

Due to Sandy's aftermath, the Steelers have no choice but to fly into Newark on Sunday morning and bus to its game against the Giants at MetLife Stadium that afternoon. 

Pittsburgh Steelers: Week 9 NFL Power Rankings (#8)

Last week: 15 (+7) Record: 4-3 After 2 straight wins, the Steelers are back in the AFC playoff picture at 4-3 and that’s despite Troy Polamalu being out. When he’s in the lineup over the last 3 years, they allow about a touchdown less per game when he’s in there so it’s good news that they’ve been playing well without him. Ben Roethlisberger is quietly having an MVP caliber...
