If there’s one thing that an offense hates, other than turnovers, it’s 3rd and long. You make yourself much more predictable to the defense and let’s face it, most teams don’t have many 3rd and 20 plays in their offensive game plan. The Steelers have been making a living out of converting large down and distance situations through the first 2 weeks of the season, but how...
The Pittsburgh Steelers are back on the practice field on Tuesday before heading off to the bye week and Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports via Twitter that both linebacker James Harrison (knee) and safety Troy Polamalu (calf) are getting work in today.
The team is not required to release a practice participation report during the bye week so we don't know...
Rookie Kelvin Beachum starts the second half with a false start. Ben Roethlisberger was off the mark trying to drop a deep ball into Mike Wallace and the Steelers are facing second and long. On third down Roethlisberger misses Antonio Brown on the right sideline that would have likely moved the chains. The Steelers quarterback was able to make a clutch throw to Wallace on third down...
We apparently have already had our first in-game "incident" between Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and new offensive coordinator Todd Haley.
Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports Sunday morning that Roethlisberger and Haley had a disagreement during the Steelers opening Sunday night loss to the Denver Broncos, but that the quarterback says...

Below are the week 3 official gamebook snap counts from the Pittsburgh Steelers 34-31 loss to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. These counts also include penalty plays in addition.
Offensively not much sticks out participation wise as the Steelers ran quite a bit of 11 personnel in the game that utilized 3 wide receivers on the field. The snaps for both Leonard Pope and David Paulson...

According to Jory Rand of KDKA-TV Pittsburgh, Steelers linebacker Larry Foote yelled ‘”you should go kill yourselves” at the replacement officials as he entered the locker room at the end of Sunday’s loss to the Raiders.
It looks like the NFL might have something else to investigate, if they choose to. If anything he might receive a small fine from the league office. ...
Week 3 has the Steelers traveling to Oakland to take on a storied rival from the 1970′s in the Raiders. All the faces may have changed since that time but based on recent history between these two teams, it’s always a scrappy affair. Other than the AFC North rivals that the Steelers face each season, the Raiders (and Cowboys) are next in line as teams that Pittsburgh fans love...
If you’re looking for the Steeler defense, please let me know where you find them because clearly they were MIA on Sunday afternoon in Oakland. There are many words you can use to describe this unit, but good isn’t one of them right now unfortunately.
Despite an overall great day through the air for Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers offense, the vaunted Steeler Defense couldn’t...

The Steelers have a big matchup advantage today against the cornerback-depleted Oakland Raiders. The question is: Will they turn Ben Roethlisberger and his boys loose.
The Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders are both adapting to this new style of NFL.Both teams historically established the runfirst then looked to pass second.With the new way of the NFL which almost seems to be pass first then turn to run, the Steelers and Raiders are both leaning more towards that trend as well.Through two weeks the Raiders have looked terrible, losing to the...
The Steelers aren't comfortable without their key players, but they have no other option but to master the situation. Mike Prisuta explains.
