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...

5 ways Steelers can beat Patriots in 2015 season opener

Don’t count the Pittsburgh Steelers among those who were disappointed at Judge Richard M. Berman’s decision to lift Tom Brady’s suspension. The Steelers wanted Brady all along in the 2015 season opener, even though they’ve never beaten Brady at Gillette Stadium. “Our best against their best,” Cameron Heyward, one of the few Steelers defenders with a discernible pulse...

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...

Packers vs. Steelers: 5 Takeaways from Pittsburgh’s 24-19 Preseason Win

The Pittsburgh Steelers don’t have to worry about a winless preseason. But they do have to worry about Maurkice Pouncey. 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...

Steelers vs. Jaguars: 6 Takeaways from Pittsburgh’s Second Preseason Game

The Pittsburgh Steelers fell to 0-2 in the 2015 preseason with Friday night’s 23-21 loss at Jacksonville. They won where it really counts, however, because they came out of the game with no significant injuries. The first-team offense needed just six plays to move the ball 80 yards on the game’s opening possession. Ben Roethlisberger’s 44-yard pass to Martavis Bryant, and his...

2015 Pittsburgh Steelers: 7 Burning Questions Heading Into Training Camp

This is the year. The year the Pittsburgh Steelers win their seventh Super Bowl? Well, not necessarily. Even though the Lombardi Trophy is always the standard in Pittsburgh and certainly not out of the realm of possibility this season, another bragging right is within more immediate reach. This could be the year the Steelers offense is the best in the NFL. The Steelers were .3 yards...

2015 Pittsburgh Steelers: Top 10 Draft Picks and Undrafted Free Agents

The NFL draft has become must-see TV for NFL fans.

Pittsburgh Steelers 2015 Mock Draft 4.0: A Final Look at All 7 Rounds

James Harrison and Arthur Moats will be back, and the Steelers are waiting for Jarvis Jones to break out. Outside linebackers should be on their draft radar. Cornerback...

There was a lot of hand-wringing this winter over Jason Worilds. It became increasingly clear that the Pittsburgh Steelers weren’t going to re-sign the outside linebacker. Would it be a mistake to let him go? Turns out that it would have been a huge mistake for the Steelers, or any other team, to sign Worilds.
