Pittsburgh Steelers 2016 draft report card

The 2016 NFL draft provided the Pittsburgh Steelers an opportunity to add missing pieces to a team that was two wins away from Super Bowl 50. For the second straight year, the Steelers drafted according to specific needs rather than the “best player available” policy. How did they do? These are their grades for each pick followed by a grade for the entire draft. NFL.com,...

Pittsburgh Steelers 2016 seven-round mock draft

The cornerback watch is on in Pittsburgh. The 2016 NFL draft begins Thursday, and the Steelers could draft a cornerback in the first round for the first time since they took Chad Scott in 1997. Cornerback isn’t the Steelers’ only need, however. There are other positions that could use an upgrade, depth or a little finishing touch as the Steelers try to build on 2015’s injury...

Top 12 cornerbacks on Steelers draft board

The bad news is we can forget about seeing Josh Norman in a Steelers uniform. Well, it’s not really news because it’s fairly obvious. The Steelers don’t have nearly enough cap space to sign the free agent cornerback. The good news is that if a team picking ahead of the Steelers in the 2016 NFL draft signs Norman, it would increase the Steelers’ chances of having an elite...

Martavis Bryant suspension tames Steelers’ lofty 2016 expectations

Thank you, Martavis Bryant. Not for getting suspended for a year, but rather for giving Steelers fans six months to get used to the possibility that the Steelers might not be as great as everyone thinks they’ll be. Bryant chose not to appeal his impending one-year suspension, and it became official on Monday, according to Pro Football Talk. After being suspended for the first...

Steelers can’t afford any more setbacks in Roethlisberger Era

Have all Steelers fans breathed their sigh of relief that Tom Brady won’t be in the Super Bowl? Good. Let’s limit our reaction to just that, a sigh of relief. There’s no reason to celebrate. We saw how silly the Bengals looked tweeting away after the Broncos beat the Steelers 23-16 in the AFC divisional playoffs last week. We don’t want to be like that, at least not anymore...

Steelers ride out Burfict storm, conquer Bengals

Will the Pittsburgh Steelers win Super Bowl 50? Who knows. Even if they don’t, their efforts in 2015 won’t be entirely in vain. That’s because thanks to the Steelers, the Bengals won’t be winning the Super Bowl. The Steelers extended the Bengals’ playoff futility with an emotional 18-16 wild-card win Saturday night at Cincinnati. Among Steelers fans, Whoever Plays the...

Steelers, Bengals raise stakes in bitter rivalry

The Pittsburgh Steelers got just what they wanted for Christmas. The Bengals. The Steelers did what they had to do to make the playoffs. They beat the Browns 28-12 at Cleveland Sunday and got the help they needed in Buffalo when the Bills beat the Jets 22-17. Bills cornerback Mario Butler – the anti-Ryan Succop – flew in like a superhero to break up what probably would have been...

Inexcusable loss puts Steelers’ playoff hopes in jeopardy

The rest of the NFL can come out from under their beds. All those teams that were shaking in their shoes at the thought of facing the Pittsburgh Steelers in the playoffs don’t have to worry now, because they probably won’t have to. Even if they do, the Steelers showed in Sunday’s confounding 20-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens that there’s really nothing to fear. For the...

Steelers 34, Broncos 27: Comeback victory shows how far Steelers have come from last season

The Pittsburgh Steelers are two wins away from their second straight perfect December. So does this mean it’s 2014 all over again? Not exactly. That would be short-changing the 2015 Steelers, who overcame a 17-point deficit to defeat the Denver Broncos 34-27 Sunday at Heinz Field. This year’s Steelers have shown a mental toughness that was missing last season, even before...

Steelers move a step closer to playoffs, but AFC North title still unlikely

Cincinnati sure is nice this time of year. For the Pittsburgh Steelers, anyway. The Steelers’ 33-20 win over the Bengals Sunday was their 13th in their last 15 games at Cincinnati, including playoffs, and their 21st out of their last 26 going back to 1991. Ben Roethlisberger improved to 11-2 at Paul Brown Stadium. Steelers wins at Cincinnati have become one of those warm, fuzzy...

Steelers rout Colts, face familiar road map to playoffs

In the NFL, there are certain phrases that you want to share a sentence with in December. You want to be a team that “nobody wants to play” and you want to be “hot at the right time.” The Pittsburgh Steelers are at least bearing the first of these labels after Sunday night’s 45-10 thrashing of the Indianapolis Colts. The Steelers (7-5) have generated at least 450 yards...

Defense disappoints in Steelers loss to Seahawks

Sure, if the Steelers had beaten the Seahawks Sunday at Seattle, it would have been hailed as a signature win. The narrative would have gone something like “Watch out Patriots, Broncos and Bengals. Here come the Steelers.” Instead, the Steelers lost 39-30 and the weaknesses that could keep them out of the playoffs were exposed once again. The Steelers took part in a memorable...

Pittsburgh Steelers Post-Bye Week To-Do List

Fresh off their bye week, the Pittsburgh Steelers visit Seattle on Sunday. They haven’t played there since 2003. While the Northwest might be unfamiliar territory for the Steelers, they’re in somewhat familiar territory 10 games into the 2015 season. They’re 6-4 for the third time in the last four years, but in 2012 and 2014, they fell to 6-4. They arrived at that record after...

Defense helping Steelers avoid losses to bad teams

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ ability to protect their home turf and defeat the Cleveland Browns 30-9 Sunday is significant in more ways than one. Week 10 of the 2015 NFL season was not an easy one for home teams. Visitors won 10 of the 13 Sunday games. Perhaps the most shocking was the Lions’ 18-16 win over the Packers, their first victory at Lambeau Field since 1991. That makes...

Steelers can survive Ben Roethlisberger’s latest injury

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ high-powered offense was going to take us on a thrill ride this year There have been a few unfortunate cart rides mixed in, but if nothing else the 2015 season has been an emotional roller coaster. Ben Roethlisberger rode his second cart of the season in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 38-35 win over the Oakland Raiders at Heinz Field. Usually the terminus...

Steelers lose Le’Veon Bell, but defense provides glimmer of hope

There was only so much the Pittsburgh Steelers defense could do. Who would have thought back in August that any scribe would type a sentence implying that the Steelers defense did anything positive? The unit has come a long way from the liability it looked like it would be in August, but it couldn’t bail out Ben Roethlisberger in Sunday’s 16-10 loss to the Bengals. In his first...

How can the Steelers stop Tyler Eifert?

How fitting it is that in late October the Pittsburgh Steelers are being taken for a haunted hayride by tight ends. Tyler Eifert and the Cincinnati Bengals, clad in the black and orange of Halloween, bring their 6-0 record to Heinz Field just a week after the Steelers’ ghoulish performance against Travis Kelce. The Steelers had narrowed a 16-3 deficit to 16-13 and had momentum...

Landry Jones should be Steelers’ starting QB until Roethlisberger returns

It seemed awfully cold for Landry Jones to be playing quarterback, Alejandro Villanueva to be at left tackle and a guy named Chris Boswell to be kicking field goals at Heinz Field. But this was no preseason game. It was the real deal, and the Pittsburgh Steelers MacGyvered their way to another win without Ben Roethlisberger Sunday. And in the spirit of this Halloween season, the...

Le’Veon Bell earns place in Steelers history with game-winning TD

Le’Veon Bell has little to prove. The Pittsburgh Steelers running back already is the team’s reigning Most Valuable Player and a First Team All-Pro. He owns the franchise’s single-season record for yards from scrimmage. But on Monday night, he became an immortal part of the Steelers’ storied history. Bell lifted the Steelers to a dramatic 24-20 road win over the San Diego...

Steelers face uphill climb without Ben Roethlisberger

Sunday was not a good day for the Pittsburgh Steelers despite their 12-6 win over the St. Louis Rams. Hard-core Steelers historians might have felt a sense of trepidation about the day, even with the return of Le’Veon Bell. The last time the Steelers played at St. Louis, Willie Parker broke his leg in Week 16 of the 2007 season. The Steelers won that night, but were one-and-done...

Steelers don’t need Bell, Bryant to rout 49ers

When an NFL team wins as emphatically as the Pittsburgh Steelers did on Sunday, pundits often trot out an old sports cliche and say that the team is “sending a message.” The Steelers sure did send a message by torching the San Francisco 49ers 43-18 at Heinz Field. The recipients of this message aren’t necessarily the rest of the teams on the Steelers’ schedule. Rather,...

Steelers lose opener to Patriots, have only themselves to blame

So are we supposed to be encouraged by the fact that the Steelers only lost to the Patriots by seven points in Thursday night’s season opener? Tom Brady is 4-0 against the Steelers at Gillette Stadium. The first three victories came by an average margin of 20 points. Thursday’s 28-21 final score was deceptively close. Ben Roethlisberger threw a garbage-time touchdown pass to...

Signing Michael Vick is the right move for Steelers

If it weren’t for Michael Vick’s past, his signing Tuesday by the Pittsburgh Steelers would be nothing more than six-point agate type in the newspaper. Vick is, after all, a 35-year-old quarterback whose 52.9 completion percentage last season was the lowest in the NFL among quarterbacks who threw at least 100 passes. He’s a backup near the end of his career. But because Vick...

The Steelers’ All-Pro center was injured in the first quarter of Sunday’s 24-19 victory over the Green Bay Packers at Heinz Field. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Pouncey broke a bone in his ankle and will have surgery today. He could go on the...
