Stats Of The Weird: Steelers Vs Chiefs

3…2…1…win. Whew. Let’s get weird. I have covered some of these on Twitter so forgive me for double-dipping. – Here’s one I haven’t. There have been only a pair of 18-16 final scores in the playoff in NFL history. Both have been Pittsburgh Steelers’ wins. Each in the last two…


Antonio Brown’s Sideline Apparel Shows Off Team-First Mentality

You may have noticed early in last week’s game against the Dolphins that after Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown scored a touchdown on the team’s opening drive, he was shown prior to the ensuing kickoff sitting on the team’s bench sporting a hat emblazoned with the number 92 of…


Steelers Spin: Divisional Playoffs Rants And Ramblings

Playoffs? You kidding me? I just hope we win a game. These were the immortal words of then Indianapolis Colts coach Jim Mora at a press conference years ago. And although he was deflecting questions following a disappointing regular season loss for his team, his words should be the mantra…


Film Room: James Harrison A Complete Player

James Harrison certainly needs no endorsement from me. The 38-year-old Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker’s body of work—figuratively and literally—is very much its own endorsement. His level of play at his age is incredibly rare. And to be clear, the level at which he is playing is, to put it simply,…

James Harrison Says He Spends $350K A Year In Taking Care Of His Body

This is from Sunday but I have been wanting to get around to this interview. Because James Harrison doesn’t do many one-on-one sitdowns so it’s always cool to hear what he has to say. Harrison sat down with NFL Network’s Andrea Kremer in an interview that aired Sunday morning, prior to…



Joey Porter’s Unfortunate Actions A Distraction Only To Himself

You have no doubt heard by now that Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebackers coach Joey Porter was arrested in the night following the team’s Wildcard Round victory over the Dolphins.

Dolphins Needed To Get ‘Moore’ Out Of Quarterback Position

The Pittsburgh Steelers know that they got quite a bit of a break when it comes to playing a Miami Dolphins team that was missing about a third or so of the players who started the previous game between the two teams. The most significant absence was quarterback Ryan Tannehill,…


Defense Splashes Past Dolphins In Authoritative Rematch Win

The last time the Pittsburgh Steelers played the Miami Dolphins, the defense came away looking pretty bad, and they knew that as well as anybody. They came into this game wanting to avenge their previous loss and respond to that ugly performance, which included a 200-plus-yard rushing day from running…


Stephon Tuitt’s Return Solidifies Steelers’ Defense

He may not have blown up the stat sheet, but make no mistake, the healthy return of Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Stephon Tuitt was an important ingredient in the team’s defensive success in shutting down the Miami Dolphins—while the game was still competitive, of course, before they added some cosmetic…


Steelers Vs. Dolphins: Player Snap Counts – Wild Card Week

The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Miami Dolphins 30-12 at home Sunday to advance to the divisional round of the NFL playoffs and when it comes to the individual player snap counts in that game, there weren’t many things that stood out. Offensively for the Steelers, tackle Chris Hubbard was used…
