Why wasn’t the Steelers OC Todd Haley playing Martavis Bryant before?

Todd Haley has not been the best offensive coordinator since his time spent in Pittsburgh, but over the last couple weeks one player is shining in his system.  That player is Martavis Bryant, the fourth-round draft pick from Clemson, who was slowed by a shoulder injury late in the preseason that carried over into the […] The post Why wasn’t the Steelers OC Todd Haley playing...

Antwon Blake to replace Cortez Allen in Steelers lineup Sunday night

Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen is going through a rough stretch of games, and has been very inconsistent this season. What makes it worse is that Allen seems to be regressing after receiving a five-year, $26 million contract extension. His progression the last two seasons warranted the new deal, and no one can put a finger on why his play has been so lackluster in 2014...

Over the middle: Top 5 wide receivers Week 9

1. Antonio Brown AP Photo It is hard to not put Antonio Brown as the number one fantasy wide receiver each week because he just keeps producing. If Brown is not getting his consistent at least five catches and at least 50 yards, he is either throwing a touchdown pass or running the ball. What can’t he do?

Pittsburgh Steelers massive tilt with Ravens awarded Week 9 top game honors

The leaves are turning. Halloween decorations are up throughout the neighborhood. And the days are getting shorter and shorter. What do those things signal? Football games are getting more and more important. This week certainly backs up that notion, as the NFL’s slate of games features plenty of match-ups with playoff implications.

Around 9:57 (ET) during the Steelers Monday night football clash against Houston in Week 7, my brother called me on the phone, all excited because Pittsburgh was in the throes of scoring 24 points in the final three minutes of the second quarter.
