Nothing is worse in Dynasty leagues than having a player who was a bona fide stud one year fall on his face the next. You get your hopes up and consider him a core player, a sure fire every week starter, then without warning or explanation he hits a slump so nasty that you want to drive to their city and beat them with a dead car battery. Having said that… Will the real Lawrence Timmons please stand up? In 2010, Timmons finished the year ranked as the LB7 in IDP leagues. He was machine of destruction. Through the first seven games he had racked up 56 solo tackles, 18 assists and three sacks. Nobody started off hotter! Then, something happened. Through the next six games he totaled just 20 solos, 17 assists, and zero sacks. He wasn’t hurt, there was no position change, and it wasn’t bad match-ups.

Troy Polamalu Top Rated Steelers Player Again In Top 100 Players Of 2012

The Top 100 Players of 2012 rolled on last night as players 11-20 were revealed. I am not a big fan of these list as I question their legitimacy for the most part.

I like the concept that the NFL Network has, it's just I think they made up the list...

Fans May Miss Pittsburgh Steelers Running Back Rashard Mendenhall More than They Think

When the season opens in 2012, there is a great possibility that two starters from the 2011 campaign will be on the PUP list for the Steelers, running back Rashard Mendenhall and nose tackle Casey Hampton. Ironically, this was to be (and is) a huge season for both players as the Steelers weigh their contract options moving into 2013.This is especially true for Mendenhall, who in...

By Christopher DiMarino This is the first article in what will be a series analyzing the Pittsburgh Steelers competition on the schedule for the 2012-2013 season.

Steelers Round Up: Hip Hop, weird poses and mentors

That’s right the round up is back!  It feels good to have to time to do this again.  I know I’ve missed so much since my last round up!  So, let’s dive right in. James Harrison hasn’t changed one bit since my one.  The NFL has all kinds of crazy things going on now with the bounties and the referees association filing unfair labor practices against the NFL.  Harrison...

Hritz: 2012 Steelers Season Prediction # 2: Post Draft, OTAs, & Mini-Camp Edition

By Jeremy Hritz Back on April 23, I posted my first edition of the Pittsburgh Steelers season prediction prior to the NFL Draft, noting that I would update it multiple times leading up to the season. This is the second version of the season prediction, and it takes into account the draft, OTAs, and mini-camp. In the first edition, I had the Steelers finishing the season 11-5 and...

Steelers’ Polamalu would encourage his kids to play football

The hot topics around the NFL these days don’t center around position battles, coaching changes, offensive or defensive philosophies near as much as they do when it comes to concussions. Head injuries and player safety in general have turned the national Football League into an ongoing litigation battle league with current and former players. It’s as much of a political grandstanding...

Steelers offense: Early struggles or early success?

What is the actual expectation of Haley and the offense? What if the Steelers lose the first few games? What if the losses are high scoring games in the 30′s, but the defense gives it away? What happens if they get blown out early as contrasted by low scoring games? The new offense may have a ton of potential but there is also going to be growing pains, to think that there won’t...

On the Steelers; Home games belong in Pittsburgh, not Ireland

Here we go Steelers! Here we go….. To Ireland. In what could only be viewed as a ‘what took so long’ announcement, Pittsburgh Steelers’ Chairman Emeritus Dan Rooney said yesterday that he would like the Steelers to play a regular season game in Ireland. As most of you know, Mr. Rooney was named the ambassador to Ireland by President Barack Obama not long after Obama was elected...
