In actuality, the Steelers ended up spoiling some of Johnson’s better blocks of the evening with the failed blocks of others preventing the backs from reaching the hole that he had cleared, and this early running play with Le’Veon Bell is a fine example of that, even though Bell turned it into a solid gain on his own.
Will Johnson lays down a crisp, solid block here on Ravens inside linebacker Jameel McClain, a block that should have been good enough for Bell to trail behind for a nice gain. However, because Ramon Foster could not control Arthur Jones and Haloti Ngata shaded toward that gap, Bell was forced to...

Paulk of the Tribune-Review.

According to a report from the San Jose Mercury News, via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Pryor turned down an opportunity to be selected by his hometown Pittsburgh Steelers and head coach Mike Tomlin in the 2011 NFL supplemental draft. “(Tomlin) said, ‘Hey, I’ll draft you if you want to play here,’” Pryor said. “But he gave […]

Second-year tackle Kelvin Beachum made only his second career start as a left tackle in the ranks of the professionals this past week, but he spent his entire college career as a left tackle before playing right tackle, left guard, center, and tight end in the NFL.

Oakland right tackle Matt McCants isn't making too much of his matchup this week against Pittsburgh linebacker LaMarr Woodley.
Not that the Raiders rookie has anything against Woodley. He's just trying to keep it all in perspective.

The Pittsburgh Steelers played their best game of the season this past week against the Baltimore Ravens, winning a game of the close variety by three points, and salvaging a glimmer of hope that the season can somehow be saved.
