STEELERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Watch James Harrison bench press with chains (!), because weight alone is not enough for him

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...

The Steelers defense, not the offense, the key to victory thru 2 weeks of NFL action

The black-and-gold defense ignored distractions and kept its focus on the job at hand on Sunday at Heinz Field. When you’ve prepared all week long to face a particular quarterback, only to see that quarterback declared out of the lineup just a short time before kickoff, it’s not always an easy adjustment to make. But that’s precisely the situation the Pittsburgh Steelers were...

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...

Tomlin accuses refs of using video board to penalize Steelers

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is not happy that, in his mind, Sunday’s referees used the video board to throw a flag on his team. On Wednesday, Tomlin accused the referees of flagging cornerback William Gay for unnecessary roughness only after seeing a replay of the questionable hit on the video board after not taking any action upon seeing it live. Tomlin made clear that...

Ben Roethlisberger has interesting critique of Pittsburgh fans

Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers will make their 2017 regular season home debut against the Minnesota Vikings at Heinz Field this week. It’s a venue that has in the past acted as a tremendous home-field advantage for Pittsburgh. But it in no way compares to the old Three Rivers Stadium — a venue that hosted these Steelers for over three decades. In talking about...

Le'Veon Bell works Dairy Queen shift after jokingly applying

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell made good on a joke from the time of his holdout by working a shift at Dairy Queen Tuesday on the team’s off day. Bell, who ended a protracted holdout just ahead of the Steelers’ Week 1 victory over the Cleveland Browns, spent a few hours at the Kensington, Pa., Dairy Queen. Bell had jokingly filled out an application for DQ on...
