Former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jerome Bettis was a guest Thursday morning on the NFL AM show on the NFL Network and he was asked if restricted free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace, who has yet to sign his one-year tender offer and report training camp, is playing hardball with the wrong team.
"I really think he is," said Bettis. "I think when you go through...
The Mike Wallace holdout saga continues, and as the days weeks continue to go by more people are speaking out on the situation. It’s a shame that we still have to talk about this with preseason underway and the regular season starting next month. Somehow though in the back of our minds, as fans we feared it would come to this and now it has. Much like Hines Ward’s situation...
The Steelers played their first game of the 2012 preseason last night; luckily for them they still have 4 weeks to get better. The Steelers came out to a quick 13-0 lead, but ended up losing to the Eagles, in Philadelphia, 24-23. There was a lot of good and bad in the game, but overall the Steelers ContinueThe post Steelers Display Good and Bad in First Preseason Game appeared first...
Although it’s just a preseason game, tonight we get our first glimpse of what is to come with the Pittsburgh Steelers new offense under coordinator Todd Haley in a real game situation.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has already expressed his giddiness at the notion of running a no huddle offense, and the two seem to be working quite well together in camp.

To most observers, this the biggest training camp and preseason for the Pittsburgh Steelers in a few years. This goes a good bit further than that, though. This may be the biggest training camp and preseason the Steelers have ever had for a few reasons: a major coaching change has been made, there are multiple injuries [...]
Below are my offensive notes from the first run through of the Pittsburgh Steelers 24-23 loss Thursday night to the Philadelphia Eagles. My defensive notes will be along next.
I liked the use of fullback David Johnson out of the backfield on the first 3rd down of the game. Johnson also had a few good blocks on the first drive before getting injured.
The opening drive the Steelers...
Not every team gets bit by the injury bug, but the Steelers last night resembled a MASH unit. They had more players limping off and on the field then anyone would really want to see. Preseason games are important, and training camp is vital. But since they made changes to what coaches can do during training camps, I can see where it can be a bit limiting.
Mike Tomlin saw Will Johnson one time and signed him. Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson understands why.
This went somewhat un-noticed during all the media hype of the Olympics going on currently, and of course with the NFL preseason underway but NFL Commissioner Goodell told PFT’s Mike Florio that he wants the NFL to be an olympic sport. If you read through the excerpt below you can tell that he is quite adamant about finding a way to make it happen.
I’m honestly not sure how...
The preseason opener means it’s time to match the new names with the numbers for this year’s Pittsburgh Steelers. The unveiling occurs tonight in Philadelphia ...
