Steelers' 20-7 Win Over Browns Just Wasn't Enough to Get to the Playoffs

(1) Comments | Posted December 30, 2013 | 9:36 AM

Whatever happened in Week 17, it was still pretty incredible that, after starting the season at 0-4 (the first time since 1968), the Steelers STILL had a shot at the playoffs -- of course with a lot of help. And after a dominating 20-7 win over the Cleveland Browns, all...

So Much Happened in The Steelers' Crazy 38-31 Win Over The Packers

(1) Comments | Posted December 26, 2013 | 1:10 PM

Wow. SO MUCH WENT ON in this insane game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. Hopefully this post won't go over 10,000 words, but I can't make any promises.

Where do I even begin? The Steelers did what they had to do by winning,...

It's week 15, and the Pittsburgh Steelers baaaaaaaarely stay alive in the playoff chase with an impressive 30-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. During a windy, cold night, the Steelers had to play like they had nothing to lose. And they did! After the Bengals botched some huge special teams...

Time to put the final nail in the coffin of the 2013 Pittsburgh Steelers season.

When will the blood bath begin? It's hard to imagine how many people are going to lose their jobs after this debacle of a season. Fans will be calling for everyone's heads. Though the Steelers...

Steelers Keep Hope Alive With 37-27 Victory Over Lions

(0) Comments | Posted November 18, 2013 | 8:04 AM

Who would have thought that a botched fake field goal would turn the tide of an entire game?

Okay, so that's oversimplifying it a little bit, but let's just go with it. It was definitely a tale of two halves during the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Detroit Lions matchup. The previously...

Steelers Sort of Redeem Themselves With 23-10 Win Over Hapless Bills

(0) Comments | Posted November 10, 2013 | 5:41 PM

Coming into Sunday, with a contest between two teams that had a combined five wins, well, you knew it was going to be an absolute thriller. Just kidding. It wasn't. But the Pittsburgh Steelers were able to bounce back from a humiliating 55-point, 610-yard loss last week against the New...

Patriots Rack Up 610 Yards in 55-31 Rout of Hilariously Inept Steelers

(0) Comments | Posted November 4, 2013 | 10:18 AM

WOW. Could the Pittsburgh Steelers possibly get more atrocious? I kind of don't want to think about it. Staring down the rest of the season boasting a stellar 2-6 record, it's going to take a miracle to come out of all of this with an 8-8. And that is of...

Steelers Trump Ravens 19-16 in Exciting Game Between 2 Mediocre Teams

Thank god for Shaun Suisham.

Am I done? Can I end with that? We good?

Because that's really all Steelers fans need to say after this nail-biter. Suisham hit a 42-yard field goal with no time left to win the game and help the Steelers avoid their worst start...

Steelers Prove How Much They Suck Going 0-3 in 40-23 Loss to Bears

(0) Comments | Posted September 23, 2013 | 11:23 AM

The Pittsburgh Steelers are 0-3. It's the first time they've been 0-3 since 2000. I knew this season was going to be bad, but I honestly had no idea it'd be this bad. Let's just say the Steelers are not the ones who knock.

This week, they were the only...

Steelers 20-10 Loss to Bengals Is Sadly Not That Surprising

(0) Comments | Posted September 17, 2013 | 9:10 AM

Are the Pittsburgh Steelers officially in "oh sh*t" mode? It's starting to feel that way. Okay, so I go into every season with the Steelers feeling a rather healthy dose of pessimism, but I knew this one was going to be particularly bad. With so many veterans gone and the...

Steelers Lose to Redskins 24-13 in Sloppy Game Full of Penalties, Injuries & Turnovers (Ah, Preseason)

(0) Comments | Posted August 20, 2013 | 8:45 AM

So the Pittsburgh Steelers played the Washington Redskins (am I still allowed to call them that?) for their second preseason game on Monday Night Football. I know, I know, you probably read "second preseason game" and quickly clicked on over to something else. Maybe a recap of a game that...

Steelers 2013 Draft Is in the Books: Can the Rookies Replace the Veterans?

(6) Comments | Posted April 30, 2013 | 12:48 PM

So, in case you haven't heard, though I'm sure you did if you're reading this right now, the 2013 NFL draft took place this past weekend. The Pittsburgh Steelers welcomed a bunch of new players in order to replace some extremely valuable "older" ones who left during the off-season. Mike...

Steelers Lose (Again) 27-24 in OT to Cowboys & Make the Bengals Game Really, Really Important

(0) Comments | Posted December 17, 2012 | 7:48 AM

Um, so wow. If the Steelers hadn't lost against the Cowboys 27-24 in OT in such a dramatic fashion, I'd say that was probably one of the best games I've seen so far in the regular season. Just sucks that it ended the way that it did (you know, as...

So Much for Big Ben's Big Return: The Steelers Lose 34-24 in Spectacular Fashion to the Chargers

It's probably safe to say that most Pittsburgh Steelers fans got into the trap of thinking that it was simply inevitable that the team, with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and safety Troy Polamalu back, would simply go ahead and win the next four games to finish out the season. Thanks to...

Of course, many of us are well aware (at least I'd hope) that the devastating, tragic effects of Hurricane Sandy far outweigh the significance of any professional football game.

The Steelers, Dressed as Giant Bumblebees in Khakis, Cruise Past Redskins in 27-12 Win

Hey, so, I guess there's a hurricane coming? I may be stuck in my window-less room in downtown NYC for the next few days, but at least I can relish in the most recent Pittsburgh Steelers win. Even if they did look like incredibly giant, awkward bumblebees in khakis (they...
