Mike Tomlin Explains, Defends Onside Kick Decision

Of all the frustrating coaching decisions made in yesterday’s loss, Mike Tomlin’s decision to attempt an onside kick was perhaps most baffling. Speaking with reporters after the game, Tomlin offered an explanation for his choice. “We wanted to get the ball back,” Tomlin said. “We had’t stopped them convincingly enough…



Steelers Vs Jaguars Winners/Losers

Well, this sucks. WINNERS Antonio Brown: The man, the myth, the legend. Hall of Famer, but you probably already knew that. Insane catch after insane catch. And on a calf that I’m sure, at best, felt pretty sore. He looked a little slow out of his break on his first…


Steelers Spin: Jagged Little Edge

As the Pittsburgh Steelers begin their 2018 playoff journey in the NFL divisional round there is concern among the faithful that their first bend in the road will have a jagged little edge. After all, the team they are facing, the Jacksonville Jaguars, were one of the few teams to…


Jaguars Know Ben Roethlisberger Won’t Have A Repeat Performance

Ben Roethlisberger played his worst game of the season against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Toss in some bad luck and poor performances from his supporting cast, and you get that ugly five interception, blowout loss. But the Jaguars’ coaching staff knows not to expect that a second time. They’re going to…


Cakewalk? Steelers Playoff History Suggests Otherwise

All you’re going to hear this entire week, and on every pregame show Sunday, is how there’s no chance the Pittsburgh Steelers lose. And of course, they’re the favorites. They should be, they deserve be, and even I – ever the cynic – believe they will win if they play…




Keeping Bortles In The Pocket Key For Steelers

Mike Tomlin Praises Marcus Gilbert For ‘Awesome Job’ In Return

From a depth chart viewpoint, the Pittsburgh Steelers are generally the same team now that they were in Week 5. A better team and unfortunately, without Ryan Shazier, but offensively, all the key guys are still available. The biggest difference? Getting back Marcus Gilbert, who missed the first matchup with…




Red Zone Performance Still A Sore Spot For Steelers

Quick note I wanted to make about the Pittsburgh Steelers’ season before we tackle the playoffs. But most measures, it was a successful one. 13-3, 406 points, all-stars across the board. Hard to complain, right? One gripe has to be with how the Steelers’ red zone offense and defense performed….



Ben On Landry: ‘I Thought He Played A Great Game’

Pittsburgh Steelers backup quarterback Landry Jones made his only start of the 2017 regular on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns and the former fourth-round draft out of Oklahoma played well in the team’s 28-24 win at Heinz Field as he completed 23 of his 27 total pass attempts in the…
