Who will be Ben Roethlisberger’s backup in 2015, any of these guys?

In his 11 previous seasons, Ben Roethlisberger has only started all 16 regular season games three times, in his fifth season and each of the last two. By no means am I saying Roethlisberger is fragile, but history has shown that the Steelers will need some help for a game, maybe even more. Up until 2012, Charlie Batch was more than suitable for the job. Batch started 55 games for...

Top 10 Quarterbacks in Pittsburgh Steelers History

Now that Ben Roethlisberger has signed a five-year contract that likely will keep him a Pittsburgh Steeler for the rest of his career, what better time to rank the top 10 quarterbacks in Pittsburgh Steelers history? This doesn’t mean the Steelers have had 10 good quarterbacks in their 82-year history. There might be if they had been a little more patient with some of them, but...

Johnny Manziel and Jimmy Clausen Will Never Succeed With Their Immature Names

    Comcast SportsNet Philly producer Sean Kane revealed the real reason why quarterbacks Johnny Manziel and Jimmy Clausen are destined for failure, and trust me, you would’ve never guessed it. No, it’s not because one drinks too much or because the other is just plain awful. The truth has been in their forenames all along!   But what about Johnny Unitas?!? According to...

Another Tweet From Batch Adds Fuel to the Steelers Fire

Twice in the last year plus, former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch has said enough to get me to write about what he had said. It isn’t often that the former back-up QB says or does anything to garner any attention but what Batch has been saying can’t fall on deaf ears any longer. The first piece I wrote came back in September of 2013  and then the second was in...

Former Detroit Lions quarterback hopes to continue his losing ways

The Detroit Lions have a reputation for losing. It is a long and well earned reputation and to rise above it will take a whole team effort, from owner, to front office, to coaching staff and ultimately the players all must take ownership and responsibility to overcome this tradition. But, for now, at this moment, there is one former Lions player who hopes to continue to hold on to...

Remembering how the NFL helped the USA heal post 9/11

The Detroit Lions played against the Cleveland Browns on 9/23/01, the first week of NFL games after the tragedies that occurred on 9/11. The NFL and its fans stood proud and in solidarity in support of their country that day and that was far more memorable than the game itself. The game was one that stands out for it’s failures with the Lions coach Marty Morningwheg having replaced...

Steelers Prospect Watch: Justin Gilbert

At this point it seems that Justin Gilbert of Oklahoma State, and Michigan State’s Darquenze Dennard are neck and neck as the draft’s top cornerback prospect. I expect Gilbert to emerge and take that spot at the combine. Personally I still don’t understand why so much stock is put into 40 times, but I think that Gilbert could put up some eye popping times in Indianapolis. Gilbert...

Steelers Prospect Watch: CJ Mosley

Middle linebacker’s from the University of Alabama tend to get some attention on draft day, and CJ Mosley should be no different. Mosley filled the role that Dont’a Hightower and Rolando McClain filled before him, but Mosley might be the best prospect of the three. I have to admit, the only thing that makes me shy away from Mosley at all is the Steelers have a couple guys that...

I Think We Know How Charlie Batch Feels

There is little that can fire up two opposing forces faster than the Todd Haley debate but for the first time we may actually have proof that Haley isn’t exactly Mr. Personality of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Heartbreaking 2013 Season Makes It Hard to Look Ahead

There will be plenty of time to compose a wish list of prospects for the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2014 NFL draft. There will be plenty of time to bid farewell to the decorated veterans who inevitably will become victims of the Steelers’ annual salary cap purge. Right now, I’m just not ready to pick myself up after Sunday night’s letdown. Isn’t a team that’s 0-4 at the...

Steelers’ Last Two Trips to Lambeau Have Been Interesting

I can still see the ball off Neil O’Donnell’s hand. It was fourth and goal and the Steelers trailed the Green Bay Packers 24-19 the day before Christmas in 1995. Awaiting the ball was Steelers’ wide receiver Yancey Thigpen. He was all alone in the back of the end zone. There were just 16 seconds left when the play began. A touchdown here would ice the victory and would give...

Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens: 2013 Week 13 NFL Pick

Pittsburgh Steelers (5-6) at Baltimore Ravens (5-6) The Ravens have been pretty unbeatable at home over the past few seasons, going 27-4 at home since 2010. Even this year, their worst year of that time frame, they are 5-1 at home, including 6-0 ATS. Because of that, I automatically think about taking the Ravens as small home favorites in a game they pretty much have to just win...
