Pittsburgh Steelers: Are Martavis Bryant and Ben Roethlisberger Compatible?

Super Bowl-winning quarterback, 32, height-weight proportionate, seeks tall wide receiver who’s down to earth but has a high vertical leap. Must have amazing hands to fulfill my red zone fantasies. I like long walks along the Allegheny River, no-huddle offenses and clean pockets. I love to travel, especially to Cleveland, Cincinnati and Baltimore. I work hard and play harder...

Mendenhall Retirement Should Serve as a Reminder to Steelers

Former Steelers’ running back Rashard Mendenhall retired this week at the age of 26. Is it really possible to actually retire at that age? I guess it is and we should all be so lucky. Despite not playing for the Steelers last season (he played in Arizona), the bulk of Mendenhall’s career was spent in the Steel City. For most of his five seasons he was the feature back in the...

Curtis Brown: maybe everything isn’t better in Texas—at least for the Steelers

In today’s pass-happy NFL, it’s imperative to find and develop players, on both offense and defense, who will be able to help your team excel in that area. If you’re an NFL general manager, coach or scout, and you want to find a stud receiver to help your offense or a stud cornerback to improve your secondary, what better division I school to search for such hot commodities...

Former Steelers WR Limas Sweed Catches On With The Ottawa Redblacks

Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Limas Sweed apparently hasn't given up on playing football just yet. On Monday the Ottawa Redblacks of the CFL announced that they signed Sweed, who was drafted in the second-round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Steelers. Just last June, the Saskatchewan Roughriders placed Sweed on the team's suspended list after he walked off the practice...

Mention Of Limas Sweed Sparks Tomlin’s Ire

By Matthew Marczi Yesterday at head coach Mike Tomlin’s weekly press conference—during which he was abnormally forthright and ingratiating—one reporter was so swept up in the new and improved Tomlin Experience that he was lulled into a false sense of security. In his docile state, he even went so far as to evoke the name […] Mention Of Limas Sweed Sparks Tomlin’s Ire is...

Revenge Of The Busts

By Michael K. Reynolds During this resurgence of the Pittsburgh Steelers, who now have won five of their last seven games, much of the credit can be placed squarely on the shoulders of an unlikely group of players. In fact, the theme of the 2013 season may aptly be called, “The Revenge of the Busts.” Start off with perennial punching bag, Jason Worilds, who since his switch...

Situation With CB Curtis Brown Starting To Look Similar To That Of Limas Sweed

The Pittsburgh Steelers Wednesday injury report included third-year cornerback Curtis Brown as not practicing and it was not because of an injury. Being as he has been inactive for the last two games, you have to wonder now how much longer he will remain on the roster or if there is something else going on with him. In the games that Brown has dressed for so far this season, he has...

Grading the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Round-by-Round Value in the 2007 and 2008 NFL Drafts

The world changed rapidly in 2007 and 2008. Facebook and Twitter were becoming household words, the U.S. economy went into the dumper and the Pittsburgh Steelers had their first new coach in 15 years. The Steelers also won their sixth Super Bowl during this time. Mike Tomlin won the Super Bowl in his second season as coach, faster than both Chuck Noll and Bill Cowher. It shouldn’t...

Limas Sweed Back Playing Football In The Great White North

In case you missed my posting of this on Twitter yesterday, the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League announced on Thursday that they had signed former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Limas Sweed to their practice roster.

Limas Sweed Still Having Trouble Catching On With Another Team

It is extremely tough not to root for wide receiver Limas Sweed, who was originally drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the second round of the 2008 NFL draft. The Steelers gave the 6 foot, 4 inch receiver out of Texas every opportunity to shake his demons since they drafted him, but they finally were forced to part ways with him last season as he had problems staying on the field...

New York Giants Mini-Camp: Last Chance For Two Vets

In my last article, I spotlighted 5 prospects to watch and who I believe can make an impact on the Giants in 2012 or beyond. In this article, I’ve put a little twist on it and have targeted 2 veteran players looking to latch on to re-establish themselves in the NFL. With currently 16-18 veterans tryout for the Giants, I narrowed down my selection to 2 players who I feel have the...
