Ex-Steelers Off To Rough Start In Post-Pittsburgh Careers

So…it hasn’t gone all that smoothly so far when it comes to former Pittsburgh Steelers players relocating this year. Almost literally not one player who was an unrestricted free agent who failed to re-sign with the Steelers is currently on an NFL 53-man roster, and this is not an insignificant...

Steelers can’t let Pennywise the Quarterback beat them

Normally, this is the kind of week where we wave the caution flag about a Steelers letdown. The Steelers take their 2-0 record to Chicago Sunday to face the 0-2 Bears, who are in the bottom 10 of the NFL in points scored and points allowed. On one hand, the Steelers have been bitten by so many underdogs over the last half-decade that it’s hard not be a little apprehensive about...

Pittsburgh Steelers: Concerns about Le’Veon Bell

The Pittsburgh Steelers are undefeated and in a great spot right now. The only concern I have is that Le’Veon Bell has yet to get rolling. For whatever reason, Bell has been less than impressive in his first two games of the 2017 season. For most players, this wouldn’t be considered a poor start, but for Bell it clearly is. Through two games this season, Bell has averaged a lowly...

What the media always gets wrong about the Steelers is the assumption the defense is a horrible weakness

The Pittsburgh Steelers are a team with a dynamic offense, but the narrative of their defense being an Achilles heal is completely false. If you’ve followed the Pittsburgh Steelers since their Super Bowl 45 appearance, you’ve heard a lot of false narratives surrounding the team. One of those narratives is just how bad the defense is, and how it will be the reason the team never...

Is a Pittsburgh Steelers reunion with Lawrence Timmons on the horizon?

Former Steelers LB Lawrence Timmons made headlines over the weekend for an unauthorized leave of absence from the Dolphins over the weekend. Could this lead to a return to Pittsburgh? Lawrence Timmons played ten seasons for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Now, his Miami Dolphins career could be in jeopardy after zero minutes of the regular season. Some Steeler fans are already jumping the...

Steelers News: Are the Steelers underestimating what James Harrison brings to the team?

The Steelers decided not to play James Harrison in Week 2, are they underestimating what the 39-year-old still can do on the gridiron? What exactly is the plan for James Harrison? Great question and a lot of people have their own guesses about the Pittsburgh Steelers’ plans for No. 92. But is it possible the team is underestimating Harrison’s capabilities at the ripe old age...

WATCH: James Harrison bench presses with chains

Saying Steelers linebacker James Harrison’s unorthodox style of lifting weights is intense would be an understatement. I have a lot of favorite videos, from him doing hyperextensions with a 45-pound weight across his chest after playing in a road game earlier that day, to using a barbell with over 100 pounds for pelvic thrusts, which is ridiculous. But I may now have a new personal...

NFL Referee Hotline: Mike McCarthy is sick of these calls

The NFL is going strong, and we're imagining a world where the NFL adds a hotline for players, coaches and GMs to call to complain about penalties, get clarification on rules and challenge replay challenges – just like the NBA. Of course, commissioner Roger Goodell may change the phone number at any time. All responses are about as authentic and real as Ezekiel Elliott's tackling...

Mike Tomlin has interesting take on Mike Glennon

We can be pretty sure that Chicago Bears quarterback Mike Glennon has never been called “statuesque” in his entire life. That’s until the head coach of his Week 3 opponent, Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers, threw out this dandy little quote on Tuesday. Mike Glennon, the runway model? Maybe, he somewhat looks like a tall skyscraper beaming up from a city street. Or, maybe...

Brian Roach’s Good, Bad & Ugly – Steelers vs. Vikings (2017 Week 2)

You may not have noticed with the amount of complaining being tossed about, but the Steelers are 2-0. There is no doubt that the first 4 games of the season (Browns, Vikings, Bears, Ravens) are not overflowing with top-tier talent. Still, with that being said, the Vikings are a playoff caliber team, and even without Sam Bradford, that is a playoff caliber defense that they roll out...

Tough to draw conclusions on Pittsburgh Steelers defense after two games

The Pittsburgh Steelers have begun their season with two victories over the Cleveland Browns and the Minnesota Vikings in large part due to the efforts of their defense. The Steelers’ offense has surprisingly been disjointed to start the season, with Ben Roethlisberger and company scoring four offensive touchdowns through eight quarters. Antonio Brown was a bright spot in Week...

Watch Bud Dupree’s 'pump and hump' sack dance after first sack of year

There are high expectations for Steelers linebacker Bud Dupree, who appears to be turning a corner and entering his breakout season in the league. Dupree racked up 4 sacks in his rookie season, and 4.5 last year, and many expect him to go well over that number this season. He recorded his first sack of the year against the Vikings on Sunday, and did so in a big way. Dupree came flying...

Report: Sam Bradford will be gametime decision Sunday

The Minnesota Vikings might not have Sam Bradford in the starting lineup after all in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Acording to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Bradford will work out before the game and be a gametime decision. This isn’t tremendously shocking news after the Vikings announced they were activating Kyle Sloter off the practice squad because of concerns about Bradford’s...

Red zone efficiency will be a key to success for Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ opening game against the Cleveland Browns was a lot closer than many experts anticipated, in large part due to the inability of any offensive player not named Antonio Brown to find a rhythm. The team scored two touchdowns on 10 offensive drives and outside of Brown, the team generated only 108 yards of total offense. Le’Veon Bell, somewhat expectedly...

Le'Veon Bell on slow start: 'Doing what I'm told'

Le’Veon Bell’s 2017 season got off to an inauspicious start, as the running back generated only 47 all-purpose yards in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 21-18 victory over the Cleveland Browns Sunday, a career-low. Bell on Wednesday attempted to downplay the lack of production, saying he’s just “doing what I’m told.” Bell of course held out for the entirety of training camp...
