My Perfect Steelers’ Off-Season for Steel City Blitz

With the Steelers’ 2015 season now on the books, it’s great to take a little time to look back and be proud of a pretty good season. I can tell you though, that while the front office may take a couple weeks off; I can guarantee they won’t rest for long. Soon, the Steelers will be onto figuring out how to get this team over the hump in 2016. We at Steel City Blitz will be doing...

Steelers Pouncey Is Likely To Be Back In 2016

With the arrival of the end of the football season each year comes the musings of many an arm chair GM and his many ideas to “fix” the Pittsburgh Steelers. “Keep James Harrison forever, cut Jarvis Jones, groom Chickillo to take over for James in 5 years.”  “Let Le’Veon Bell walk. Running backs are easy to replace and how many teams win Super Bowls when having an NFL...

Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham spent the entire 2015 season on the team’s Reserve/Injured list as a result of a knee injury suffered during the Hall of Fame game to kick off the preseason. While that injury took place in August, Suisham apparently won’t be kicking any footballs in the... The post Steelers K Shaun Suisham Still Not Cleared To Resume Kicking appeared...

Steelers Leave Denver With ‘What If’ Feeling

The 2015 Pittsburgh Steelers ended their season this evening in Denver with a 23-16 loss to the top-seeded Broncos and they really shouldn’t hang their heads. While 31 NFL teams end their seasons in failure, only one gets to call their season a success. With all that the Steelers faced this year, some will call it a success of sorts but I can’t get myself there. Instead, I can’t...

Chris Boswell is kicking his way into Steelers history

PITTSBURGH (AP) Chris Boswell spent the first four weeks of the season looking for a job. Now, he's on the verge of ending the year as the most productive rookie kicker in Pittsburgh Steelers history. That's the kind of stability Boswell brought to a position the Steelers struggled to fill after the reliable Shaun Suisham went out with a season-ending knee injury during training...

Pittsburgh Steelers: Is Chris Boswell the kicker of the future?

The Pittsburgh Steelers are no strangers to injuries this season. They have seen Ben Roethlisberger miss multiple games, and Le”veon Bell miss the second half of the season. Some of their biggest playmakers have missed multiple games but they have also had some role players miss time like multiple offensive linemen and Ryan Shazier. One position for the Steelers was plagued with...

Steelers Fortunate To Stumble Upon Chris Boswell

The Pittsburgh Steelers were highly unfortunate to lose steady kicker Shaun Suisham for the year with a torn ACL during the preseason.

Steelers Boot Chance After Chance in OT Loss to Ravens

Who would have thought that the most important injury of the season to date wasn’t QB Ben Roethlisberger? Ever since kicker Shaun Suisham went down in the Hall of Fame Game with a season-ending knee injury, the Steelers’ kicking game has been a mess to put it lightly. Josh Scobee missed two field goals that would have won the game for the Steelers but instead, his counterpart...

Josh Scobee Needs to Get his Act Together

When Shaun Suisham went down with a torn ACL, we all mourned him. Our reliable kicker went down for the season. We brought in Garrett Hartley, and we lost him to injury as well. The front office then sent a draft pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars for their kicker, Josh Scobee. In hindsight, it looks as though we probably could’ve done better sticking to free agency. He missed two...

When newly acquired kicker Josh Scobee arrived in Pittsburgh on Monday, he apparently had a chance to tack on another year to his contract. Out of deference to the man he is replacing, Scobee refused.  Scobee, obtained from Jacksonville on Monday for a sixth-round pick, had no interest in trying to take the job of Shaun Suisham, who was lost for the season with a torn ACL in the...
