And finally – finally! — the Players’ Association is realizing how bad this is hurting […]

Mike Florio picks up where Prisco left off

Mike Florio of the Sporting News may raise the ire of a number of Steeler fans. Not because he says the Steelers will fail to make the playoffs — everyone is entitled to their opinions, and playoff fortunes ebb and flow as the years pass anyway — but because he claims the “Steelers of the […]

Prisco gives Steelers credit, temperature in hell plummets

There is generally no love lost between Pete Prisco and the city of Pittsburgh.  Not after he ranked Ben Roethlisberger as the 17th-best QB in the league prior to the 2007 season and included just two Steelers in his list of the top 100 players in the league.  And he was one of the first […]

On the Bubble: Sean Mahan

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin seems to have an affinity for his former players. This year’s hot choice was Anthony “Booger” McFarland, who eventually was not signed because of a failed physical (however, he is still under consideration if he can prove he’s healthy later this month at a private workout). Last year, it was […]

What’s this about a Pens-Steelers rivalry? GO PENS!!!

There’s been a ton of talk about a Penguins and Steelers rivalry over the past week in the major Pittsburgh media. In some of that media, there’s been the suggestion that the Penguins have overtaken the Steelers as Pittsburgh’s favorite sons. I’m not here to talk about how utterly ridiculous that is. The fact that […]

Steel Tradition want’s to wail, MAIL: Overrated Ben, Underrated Willie, a horrid schedule and an I can’t believe you said that!

Here’s a look at some of the e-mail I’ve received about the Steelers since the 2008 NFL draft. One focuses on Ben Roethlisberger, and how this particular fan can’t believe that Steelers’ fans believe all the hype. Another focuses on why there isn’t as much hype on Willie Parker, and how the Steelers were idiots […]

Is Hines Ward coming to the end of the road?

The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Texas wide receiver Limas Sweed in the second round of last month’s 2008 NFL draft.

New Poll: As a Steelers fan, I am content at the end of the season if the Steelers…

A special thanks to the 1,400 Steel Tradition readers that voted in our last poll, ‘Who is the Steelers’ biggest rival?’ I don’t think it was any surprise that the Ravens and Browns finished in the top two, although I did figure that the Browns would be in first. Of course, the “Real Browns” did, […]

What about Mewelde Moore?

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed Mewelde Moore earlier this offseason to a three-year deal. Presumably, Moore was signed to be the Steelers’ primary return man, and their third down back. Moore probably also took note of Willie Parker’s health, and figured he’d be the first option in the Steelers’ backfield should Parker go down. Moore has […]

Will Lawrence Timmons make the grade?

Last season the Pittsburgh Steelers had allowed defensive leader Joey Porter to leave via free agency. The move left a rather large gap in the defense that the Pittsburgh Steelers needed to address. Enter first round pick Lawrence Timmons. Timmons was a pass-rushing, outside linebacker from Florida St., and most had him as the #1 […]

The Walsh Tapes: 2002 AFC Championship game vs. Pittsburgh

It’s now been confirmed, the New England Patriots videotaped the Steelers’ sidelines during the 2002 AFC Championship game. Now, I could get into a long and substantial diatribe about why the Patriots should be struck off the face of the earth, and all their 2002 earthly glory should be given to the Steelers. But seriously, […]

Mendenhall injures hamstring

What is it with these first round picks and hamstrings? Are they not stretching properly? Is it the weather? This is getting tiresome. Hopefully this will not keep Rashard sidelined too long. Hopefully some of the other backs got in some good work today. Tomlin does not seem to be too concerned with the injury, […]
