Given all that has happened over the past few weeks with the inside linebackers, I was feeling somewhat confident that I would be seeing Vince Williams announced with the starting lineup tomorrow, getting the nod over Kion Wilson, over whom he has been seeing twice as many snaps anyway. And after all, what’s in a name?
After re-watching the Chicago Bears game, I continue to feel reassured that the reported first-team reps that Williams received this week was no mere coincidence. While he did not have a perfect game by any means, I did like quite a bit out of what I saw from him, in particular his ability to quickly diagnose a play and then rapidly act upon it. That is the “see-to-do” that you may hear uttered by the likes of Craig Wolfley and Tunch Ilkin.
Make no mistake, Williams still has his flaws. After all, there is a reason that he was still undrafted during the compensatory selections of the sixth round of this year’s draft. His biggest issue, as linebackers...
BEST OF MAXIM
Le’Veon is the Steelers’ starting running back: Bell wasn’t special in his career debut, but he showed that he is the best running back the Steelers have. Bell showed his ability to be a hard-nosed runner and the ability to be elusive. His first touchdown run was very impressive. He read the defense, and he reacted very well. Bell only managed 57 yards on the day, but he came...
The Pittsburgh Steelers have wrapped up their Friday practice in London as they prepare to play the Minnesota Vikings Sunday at Wembley Stadium and the final injury report has now been released.
After being limited on Thursday, tight end Heath Miller (ankle) practiced fully Friday and is listed as probable on the injury report.
In addition to Miller, cornerback Cortez Allen (ankle...
Good one, Steelers.
You really had us going for a while, there.
Starting the 2013 season 0-4? C’mon.
That hasn’t happened since 1968.
This is one hell of a practical joke you’re pulling on us.
Losing to the 0-3 Minnesota Vikings 34-27 in London? A team that allowed at least 31 points in all three of its previous games? A team with perennial bedwetter Matt Cassel replacing Christian...
The Pittsburgh Steelers are now 0-4 following there loss Sunday in London to the Minnesota Vikings and they may have lost another offensive lineman as well.
During his post-game press conference, head coach Mike Tomlin said left guard Ramon Foster suffered a pectoral injury of some kind during the game and that it will need to be evaluated.
Also according to Tomlin, quarterback Ben...
At 0-4 the Pittsburgh Steelers don't have much to be excited about, but at least rookie running back Le'Veon Bell had a positive showing in his NFL debut in the Sunday loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
Bell, who had been sidelined since the second preseason game with a sprained foot, started the game in London and contributed 84 total yards of offense on 16 carries and four...
There are a plethora of teams in the National Football League pleading their cases for the “worst team in the NFL” title, but unfortunately for the Jaguars, Ben Roethlisberger is calling dibs on the unwanted award.
The Steelers are off to their worst start in 45 years, stumbling to an 0-4 record after losing to Minnesota at Wembley Stadium in London. In the battle of winless...
According to Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Steelers tight end Heath Miller ( knee) was limited in Thursday’s practice.

It sounds like the Steelers are limiting Miller’s work as a precaution since he just came off of ACL rehab.

Since the moment that the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted David DeCastro in the first round of the 2012 NFL draft, the offensive guard has been given the highest of expectations to live up to from its fanbase. He was off to a fine start after winning the right guard position from Ramon Foster during training camp, but his rookie campaign was derailed by an injury in...

The Pittsburgh Steelers have a very nasty habit of taking their opponents lightly and playing down to their competition. It led to a disappointing 2012 season and it has led to an embarrassing start to the 2013 season. Though the team did look better during the loss to the Chicago Bears last week, they have yet to start fast in any game in 2013.
The Steelers only leads that they’ve...

Is it just me, or is it just about time for us all to take a break from this nightmarish beginning of the 2013 season?
The Bye week could hardly have come at a more opportune time for the Pittsburgh Steelers as they find themselves reeling after coming off their fourth consecutive loss in as many games to begin the year. Not in the sense that it will be enough to...
Ben Roethlisberger provided a harsh assessment of his Pittsburgh Steelers following the team’s 34-27 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in London on Sunday. The Steelers quarterback, who went 36-of-51 for 383 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in the loss, said after the game that it would be fair to call the 0-4 squad the […]

What was expected to be a tough weekend for the AFC North only turned out to be a tough weekend for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Bengals edged the Packers in a sloppy, turnover fest.
The Ravens were stout on defense and thumped the Texans.
And Brian Hoyer and the Browns won late against the Vikings.
And now the Steelers are in the unfamiliar and uncomfortable position...
At 0-3 and staring 0-4 in the eyes, the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Giants are in dire strait. Both offenses have been woefully inept, and despite some bright spots on defense, neither team can make up for their offenses’ lack of production.
With an 0-3 start, a team has some time to fight its way back into the playoff hunt. At 0-4, the playoffs are still possible, but...
Season 4, Episode 26 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I preview the Sunday game in London between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Minnesota Vikings and that includes us going over the injury report of both teams.
The Vikings announced on Friday that Matt Cassel with start at quarterback in place of the injured Christian Ponder so that certainly gets our attention...
