There They Go Again … Disrespecting James Harrison

There has been a lot of “dissing” going on again with Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison. It was only last year during the offseason when NFL experts both local and far away were using the word “done” when discussing what was left in the career tank of James Harrison. Too…

Two Out Of Three AFC North Writers Choose Harrison As Steelers Most Feared

Who is currently the most feared player on the Pittsburgh Steelers defense? That is a question that Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com recently asked his fellow AFC North beat writers and two of the three unsurprisingly chose linebacker James Harrison. Coley Harvey, who covers the Cincinnati Bengals, emphatically chose the 37-year-old…

Steelers All-22: Marcus Gilbert 2014 Sack Recap

The individual goal of any player from one season to the next is to get better. Simple enough and it’s easy to say player “X” has to improve. It’s the specifics that are more interesting and the way to measure progression. We may expand the focus but we’ll begin evaluating…

AFC North Free Agency Watch Day 1: Baltimore Ravens

If you’re a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers, then the opening day of free agency was basically a total snoozefest, outside of the front office evidently prank calling Darrelle Revis’ agent, unless there is some other reasonable explanation for that communication. But that wasn’t the case around the rest of…

Sensible For Steelers To Show Interest In LB Brian Orakpo

Usually this time of year, as the start of free agency looms, and cuts are made, the Pittsburgh Steelers sit back and watch the rest of the NFL landscape partake in the bonanza. Perennial bottom feeders like the Oakland Raiders, Cleveland Browns and Washington Redskins often go crazy, choosing to…

What If The Steelers Had Signed Elvis Dumervil Instead Of The Ravens? 

There are numerous “what ifs?” that exist in the sports world. Some are franchise altering decisions that completely shift the landscaping hierarchy of conferences and leagues.
