Good stuff from last Sunday's game in the Burgh

Scroll down to the guy wearing the Redman jersey and read the comment under the I-Formation picture below; it's hilarious.

Wacko Kicker Report

Hey, maybe Skippy isn't really so bad after all.

Return of the "Good Old Days" in Cincy

Just what this collection of misfits needed.

They've got to be kidding.

If beating a team without its starting QB by 3 points makes you an elite QB, then I guess BA deserves to be a Hall of Fame coach.

Moss traded back to Vikes

I can't stand Belichick, but you've got to admit that he's nobody's fool. Anyone who watched the Pats take apart the Dolphins on Monday night realizes that this team doesn't really need Moss and his ego anyway. Like Big Ben, Tom Brady can make any receiver look like a world-beater. So now the Pats get a third-round pick next year, probably a player that will help them for years to come, in exchange for an expensive, aging receiver. But the main thing that intrigued me about the game on Monday night is that Moss wasn't even a factor. In fact, Brady completed passes to nearly everyone except the ball boy.

Kriegel's Take on the Steelers

Lots of good stuff but I don't like the ending. Ben is not a "bad guy," he just made a bad mistake. Time to move on and give him the benefit of a doubt.

In Memoriam: George Blanda

A forerunner to many other great Western Pennsylvania QBs, George Blanda from Youngwood, PA, died today at the age of 83. The son of a Czech-born coal miner, Blanda played for 26 seasons, longer than any other player and also scored more points than anyone else in league history. No player will ever match what Blanda achieved during his illustrious career.

Mendenhall is not a fumbler.

According to stats, the average fumbling percentage for NFL running backs is 1% to 1.5%. Mendenhall has fumbled only 3 times in 261 career rushing attempts--about average in the NFL. So why do people keep saying that Mendy is a fumbler?

"I've been in this league a long time now," the eighth-year player says. "This is the first place where you feel like family. This is where I want to spend the rest of my career. That's what I mean by football paradise. This is football paradise. There is no B.S. here like other places. People tell you the truth here. They don't lie to you. I don't ever want to leave." Steeler QB Byron Leftwich (quoted in Mike Freeman's column for CBS

Dwyer is for real

At 6-1, 235, this kid looks like a great draft pick and he might be this year's training camp phenom.

Fair-Minded Assessment of the BB Affair

You don't have to approve of Ben's behavior to think that he's being railroaded.

I think his jaw could use some work too.

While you're in there doc, any way to stop the old motor-mouth?

Some great stories from the Super '70s Steelers

Make sure you get your 11 minutes-worth this weekend.

Interesting article on how little actual football is played during a typical, 3-hour pro game. Not that the quantity has changed much over the years, but with all the commercial breaks, it sure seems a lot more like "moneyball" than football these days.

Steelers add another partner to ownership team Monday, December 21, 2009 By Ed Bouchette,...

Steelers add another partner to ownership team Monday, December 21, 2009 By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette The Steelers will add another minority partner to their new stable of ownership, although they have not revealed the name of the shareholder. The new partner was approved at the special league meetings in Dallas last week, and a team spokesman said it is a followup to the closing in September in which the new ownership structure was completed. "We hope to be able to provide you with the identity of the partner in the near future," a statement from the club read. Read more:

Myron rallies the troops

Some much needed levity, courtesy of the late, great Cope.

This might just be the dumbest post EVER.

I mean, can you imagine that the Steelers would ever let Big Ben get away? It must have been a slow news day for sportswriters.

Bleacher Report makes a good point

Not making any excuses for another poor performance by the Steelers but, seriously, one hand to the face and a knee to the head of a downed QB. And no penalty?

Interview with Big Ben

Not sure what kind of access the Canadian Press has to the Steelers, but Ben makes some pretty revealing comments in this interview.

Good press from Salt Lake City

Where the highly-mobile Steeler Nation and its Terrible Towels once again get due recognition.

Some great Pittsburgh sports footage from yesteryear

Here's a You Tube page I think you'll like. I just watched the Steelers dismantle Dan Pastorini and the Oilers in the 1978 AFC Championship. Talk about utter domination in a game played under terrible conditions (32 degrees with freezing rain). As usual, Bradshaw was impeccable in a big game and the Steeler D was an immovable object. It's nice to recall how truly great the 70s Steelers were.
