Why Did the Steelers Waste $26 Million on Cortez Allen?

Cortez Allen will be an awfully expensive nickel back Monday night when the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Houston Texans at Heinz Field. The Steelers agreed to pay Allen 520 million nickels, or $26 million, over the next five years. But because of his lackluster performance this season, Allen has lost his starting job to Brice McCain.

Pittsburgh Steelers Must Suppress Browns 2014 Uprising

Since the Cleveland Browns were reincarnated in 1999, the Pittsburgh Steelers have been able to count on two Ws almost every year just like “Wheel of Fortune” contestants can count on getting the R, S, T, L, N and E turned for them before they try to solve the final puzzle. Wins over the Browns can’t be taken for granted this season. In Week 1 at Heinz Field, the Browns fought...

Can the Steelers Still Count on Beating Rookie Quarterbacks?

Just when it seems the Pittsburgh Steelers hit rock bottom, a rookie quarterback awaits on their schedule. Losing to inferior competition has become a habit in recent years, but the Steelers seemed to dip to a new low last week. Not only was that a winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers team that beat them with a last-minute touchdown at Heinz Field, it was a team that was used and abused...

Pittsburgh Steelers Will Be OK With William Gay at Cornerback

In the coming weeks, a veteran defensive back with long hair and a nose for the ball will make game-changing plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s not like William Gay hasn’t done it before Sure, the Steelers will miss Ike Taylor for the next couple of months as he recovers from a broken forearm.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Baltimore Ravens: Steelers Have Rare Chance to Bury Ravens Early in Season

The last two times the NFL has played games on Sept. 11, the Pittsburgh Steelers have played at Baltimore. In 2011, they lost the season opener to the Ravens 35-7. They again play at Baltimore on the anniversary of 9/11 on Thursday night. The Steelers’ all-time record on Thursdays? 9-11 That record doesn’t begin to tell the tale of Thursday calamity that has haunted this franchise...

Best- and Worst-Case Scenarios and Predictions for 2014 Pittsburgh Steelers

Spoiler alert. The Pittsburgh Steelers will not start the 2014 season with an 0-4 record. Even in the worst-case scenario, the Steelers will win at least one game in September, something they couldn’t do last season. Of course that still leaves plenty of room for doom and gloom for those who look at two straight 8-8 seasons and see the glass as half empty. Before we get to that...

Do the Steelers Have Kelvin Beachum 2.0 on the Roster?

The Pittsburgh Steelers seemingly grabbed one of the steals of the 2012 NFL Draft by selecting Kelvin Beachum in the seventh round. I’ve admitted it before that I thought Beachum had no shot at making this team when he was drafted. Then Beachum proceeded to have a terrible Preseason which made him making the final roster even more surprising. Beachum was billed as the guy who could...

Ryan Shazier Gives Pittsburgh Steelers High Hopes for 2014 Season

How impressive was Pittsburgh Steelers rookie Ryan Shazier in his pro debut Saturday night? Well, he might have increased the Steelers’ chances of making the playoffs. How can that be? How can a rookie boost the Steelers’ playoff stock by playing 37 snaps in a preseason game? Because it seems that the more a Steelers’ first-round draft pick contributes as a rookie, the better...

5 Takeaways from Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2014 Preseason Opener

It’s getting to the point where if preseason games counted, the Pittsburgh Steelers would have the No. 1 draft pick every year. After going winless in the preseason last year, the Steelers opened the 2014 preseason with a 20-16 loss to the New York Giants Saturday night at MetLife Stadium. The Steelers got through the game with no major injuries and the coaching staff came away...

Can The Pittsburgh Steelers Rely On Only Three Running Backs?

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been in camp for about one week now as we inch closer and closer to the regular season. There are position battles up and down the roster and it’s time for players to either step up or not have a job. One of the more interesting positions to watch in camp will be the running back position. There has been pretty much a consensus among Steelers’ fans...

How Does Maurkice Pouncey Compare to Great Pittsburgh Steelers Centers of the Past?

How much does Maurkice Pouncey mean to the Pittsburgh Steelers? One woman’s face said it all. When Pouncey went down after David DeCastro’s wayward block in last year’s season opener, it was an emotional punch to the gut for the Steelers and their fans. Pouncey was taken off the field on a flatbed cart, and even the driver couldn’t detach herself from the gloom and doom of...

Chuck Noll’s Teaching Skills Helped Change Steelers History

Chuck Noll’s death on Friday at the age of 82 was hardly a surprise. He had been in poor health for a number of years. But couldn’t he have had just one more Father’s Day? Noll was more than just a football coach. Unlike many of today’s NFL coaches, he wasn’t working 18-hour days and suffering heart attacks and mini-strokes because of it. He had other interests. He was...

Grading the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2013 Draft a Year Later

The meter is running on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2013 draft class. At a time when the Steelers need immediate contributions from their rookies because of all the holes in their roster, even more will be expected from their second-year players in 2014. Pundits have handed out letter grades like candy to each NFL team’s 2014 draft. Those grades are about as useful as kindergarten...

How Much Would Expanded NFL Playoffs Help the Pittsburgh Steelers?

Most fans don’t want expanded NFL playoffs. And Roger Goodell doesn’t care. Principal Goodell tried to ram expanded playoffs down everyone’s throat for 2014, but the matter wasn’t voted upon at the owners meetings in Atlanta. Expanded playoffs are coming, though, probably by 2015. So enjoy one last year of the NFL as we know it. Because in 2015 it won’t be the same. Six...

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.
