An Unconventional Look at the Draft

I have been a football fan (and, of course, the Steelers fan) for 10 years now. In the time since seeing my first NFL game, I went from not knowing what "first and ten" meant to being pretty well...

Mother of All Heartbreaks: Cruel Ending to the 2013 Steelers Season

There must have been a blemish on the Steelers’ collective karma, gained somewhere over the years of grueling, all-means-are-good battles with 31 other teams for that shiny trophy, and it has now...

Help a Fan Learn the Game (But Please Don't Laugh)

I’ve been introduced to football about eight years ago. And even though I follow the Steelers and NFL as closely as someone living seven time zones away can, I have never played football in my...

Yet Another Tomlinism

+

- The strip by Troy, is that something you are working on in more in practice, creating turnovers? - I am not going to say that play was born out of some increased emphasis of something that we emphasize. But it’s something we have been emphasizing.

From the post-game presser at Cleveland http://www.steelers.com/news/article-1/Coach-Tomlin-Post-Game-at-Browns/16a544ce-8bf2-4927-a1e9-ddbaae58f1b9

Resilience, Not Momentum Swing, Key to Win Over Lions

NFL is all about calculation. There are no coin flips in the game save for Hail Marys and, well, actually coin flips before the game. Every play has a purpose, and there is a clear understanding...

Put This One Squarely on the Offense

When I was watching the miserable Steelers game in Oakland, I tweeted - which is more depressing, watching the game or following the game vibe on Twitter. I clearly was not alone in this sentiment,...

Hidden-Hidden Play of the Game

In his half-ridiculous, half-brilliant weekly TMQ, ESPN Gregg Easterbrook often refers to "hidden plays of the game" – plays that are not flashy and do not stand out on a stat sheet, but that...

Looking for the Bright Side

In a task that seems to be as tough as beating the Bengals in Cincinnati on MNF, I thought I'd try to find a silver lining to what happened yesterday at Heinz Field. I want to start with the...

The Painful Experience of Lowering the "Unlowerable": 2013 Steelers Expectations

I have known the game of football for just eight years. When I came to the U.S. to study, I had no clue what "first-and-ten" was, or what a tight end was supposed to do. But I learned that very...

Running Game Success Should be Credited to Coaching/Front Office Staff

Needless to say, it was great to see Jonathan Dwyer run like he did in the past two games. And all the praise poured on him and on the offensive line for taking some heat off the apssing game is...

A requiem for the 2011/2012 Pittsburgh Steelers (Yahoo! Sports)

This piece on Yahoo's Shutdown Corner very well reflects my view on what happened to the Steelers and why we are sitting here wondering what to do this weekend.

Thoughts on Steelers and Weirdness of the Playoff Field

OK, Steelers fans, we’ve come to the point in the season which we all longed for ever since the CBA was signed back in August, but which we all are dreading – the playoffs, the time when football...

Steelers Look Forward To A Bye Week While Looking Down On The Division

  Take a deep breath, Steelers Nation – the bye week is here. Ten weeks into the season, it is finally time to rest those "old" bodies. Time to heal and to get some players back. And enjoy a 7-3...

Is It Possible To Enjoy A Steelers Loss?

As tough as the Steelers Week 9 loss to the Ravens was, it's hard to not appreciate the fine game the two rivals played Sunday night.

The Steelers D. "D" as in "Domination"

Quite frankly, this is as close to a dominant win as you can get to with a one-score scoreline. Had the opposing quarterback’s name not been Brady, I wouldn’t even have to worry about the outcome...

Things Are Back to Normal, and Steelers Are Back to First Place

This week, I learned (or, rather, re-learned) two things about the 2011 NFL. One, all streaks in the NFL are bound to end, sooner or later (in fact, rather sooner than later). Two, any team can...

Adventures in Officiating :)

I'll make it very clear for the record that I do think that the refs made the right call on the onside kick recovered by the Titans late in the third quarter. However, the process of their making...

Baron Batch

All of a sudden, I really want this guy to make the Steelers' roster and play for the team. It isn't often that the NFL players have deep personalities like Baron Batch.
