Dolphins Head Coach Not Ready To Talk About Lawrence Timmons’ Absence

Former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons shockingly took an unauthorized leave of absence from the Miami Dolphins on Sunday and as a result, failed to play in the team’s game against the San Diego Chargers. After the Miami game was over, Dolphins head coach Adam Gase indicated he wasn’t ready…


JuJu Smith-Schuster Channels Inner Hines Ward Sunday

Real quick post because the clip I’m about to show is worth 1000 words. JuJu Smith-Schuster has been compared to Hines Ward since being drafted. He spent training camp standing by his side throughout practice and working with him after. That experience seemed to rub off on him Sunday. Against…


Bengals Consider Benching Dalton, Circling The Drain

All is very much not well in Cincinnati. They’re 0-2, have arguably the most pathetic offense in the league, and have just fired their offensive coordinator. Now, they might be close to a change at quarterback. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, who, I know, isn’t exactly a Steelers’ fan favorite, passes…


Steelers Defend Decision To Throw Deep

Before the game began, the Pittsburgh Steelers knew they were going long. And so they did with mixed results. Three big plays were gained out of it, a pair of pass interference calls and long catch by Martavis Bryant, but it’s fair to wonder if the offense became too infatuated…


Bud Dupree Sticks His Hand In The Pass-Rush Pile

While it was unfortunate to see Pittsburgh Steelers rookie outside linebacker T.J. Watt have to bow out of his second career game with a groin injury, the extent of its severity not yet known, it was a pleasant sight to see their third-year starter, Bud Dupree, back out on the…


T.J. Watt Shows Off Swat, Makes Impact Despite Leaving Early

T.J. Watt did not have the sort of impact that he did in the first game of his career a week ago, during which he registered a pair of sacks to go along with an interception—but of course he didn’t even have half the time to do it in. Yet…




Stats Of The Weird: Steelers Vs Vikings

Another win. Another weird. – My favorite stat of the weird from today. Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant, and JuJu Smith-Schuster have all scored touchdowns on their first touch. Bryant, JuJu on receptions, Brown on a kick return. It took Eli Rogers a whole seven touches for his first. And Jesse…

Steelers Roll The Dice, Use Long Ball To Beat Vikings 26-9

Just like the Steelers wide receivers mimicked rolling dice in the back of the end zone, the Minnesota Vikings rolled their own die in today’s matchup, opting to sit quarterback Sam Bradford and his injured knee and start backup Case Keenum instead. The move did not pay off as the…


Steelers Vs Vikings: Winners And Losers

Your winners and losers from the Pittsburgh Steelers 26-9 win over the Minnesota Vikings. WINNERS Martavis Bryant: Bryant had the chance to pick on CB Trae Waynes. And like a schoolyard bully, Bryant was relentless. He drew a penalty, had a 51 yard catch downfield, and beat old-man Terrance Newman…


Steelers T Alejandro Villanueva Leaves Home Opener With Heat-Related Issues

Pittsburgh Steelers left tackle Alejandro Villanueva is questionable to return to today’s game against the Minnesota Vikings due to heat-related issues. Villanueva left the game in the first half and was replaced at left tackle by Chris Hubbard. Villanueva wasn’t having a great game before leaving injured as he was penalized for…


2017 Week 2 Steelers Vs Vikings Live Update And Discussion Thread – Second Half

The Steelers bring with them a 14-3 lead into the second half following two early touchdowns courtesy of Ben Roethlisberger, finding Martavis Bryant on a 27-yard catch-and-run and subsequently a four-yard connection with rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster on a shovel pass.
