Despite being eligible to practice, a healthy Ola Adeniyi is unsure when he will return

Now fully healthy, rookie linebacker Ola Adeniyi believes he will be ready to go whenever he is called up. Eli Rogers was not the only player on the roster eligible to return to practice last week after an extended absence due to injury. Placed on injured reserve at the start of the season, Olasunkanmi Adeniyi could also have resumed training with his teammates after Week 6, but much like Rogers, it seems the coaching staff still has yet to decide what they intend doing with him this season. Speaking to Chris Adamski of TribLive earlier in the week, the rookie linebacker confirmed he was...

Pittsburgh Steelers: 3 changes you can expect in the second half of the season

The Pittsburgh Steelers aren’t perfect, but they are first in the AFC North. So, before losing the lead they struggled to get, they’ll make some second half adjustments. This team isn’t perfect. The Steelers started slower than anyone expected this season, and after exposing the lowest of the lows within their organization, they somehow bounced […] Pittsburgh Steelers: 3 changes you can expect in the second half of the season - Still Curtain - Still Curtain - A Pittsburgh Steelers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

AFC North Roundup: Steelers control their own destiny within the division

Taking a look around the AFC North heading into Week 8. With Week 7 of the NFL schedule officially in the books, at least for the AFC North, it’s time to take a look back at those teams who call the AFC North home to see how they fared and what the standings look like after this week’s action. The first goal for each team in the NFL is to win its division. Doing so guarantees both a playoff spot and a home playoff game, so even these early-season games are important when it comes to divisional rankings. Let’s take a spin around the AFC North to check on the Baltimore Ravens,...

Where does Kris Letang rank among the Penguins’ all-time greatest defensemen?

Where does Kris Letang rank among the Penguins’ all-time greatest defensemen?

Top-three? Top-five? Is he the best? It has been a big start of the season for Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang. Not only does he look healthy, refreshed, and back to the player everyone expects him to be, he has probably been the team’s best player over the first month of the season, while he and his defense partner — Brian Dumoulin — have done their part to carry the group defensively. They have been sensational. It has also been a big start for Letang personally because he reached two personal milestones by becoming the franchise’s all-time leading scorer among...

The evolution of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ punishing power offense

The evolution of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ punishing power offense

Every NFL team strives for balance on offense -- the ability to run or pass the ball with equal efficiency. But the Steelers are taking that concept to another level. The evolution of NFL offenses is on full display every week around the league. The creativity displayed and the statistics achieved by the players are staggering. This isn’t your grandfather’s NFL, that’s for sure. The dinosaur days of power football -- three yards and a cloud of dust -- are no more. It's gone extinct, kind of like rotary phones, video stores, and good music. It's the stuff of legend now, from a time...

This Month in Penguins History: Carolina Loses First Franchise Home Game to Pittsburgh

Hard to believe it was only 21 years ago that Carolina hockey was shiny and new, right? Well, it didn’t take long for Pittsburgh to have something to say about the new kids on the block. Twenty-one years ago, the Pittsburgh Penguins had earned two Stanley Cups, Eddie Olczyk and Jaromir Jagr were leading the Penguins’ roster, and SB Nation was still eight years away from making a debut on the Internet. The former Hartford Whalers also made their debut as the newly rebranded Carolina Hurricanes 21 years ago. The Hurricanes lost their first game of the season on the road to the Tampa Bay...

WBS Weekly: Back Down to Earth

WBS begins the Pennsylvania part of their October schedule by allowing Hershey’s first win of the season, then splitting a Phantoms home and home. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17: Hershey 3, WBS 2 With Matt Murray’s return to health confirmed, Pittsburgh sent Tristan Jarry back to WBS on Monday, October 15, taking back Derek Grant in the process. Much to the consternation of some in the WBS fanbase, Jarry was immediately slotted back into the starting net for Wednesday’s contest against Hershey. The move made sense, if you consider Pittsburgh’s goal of ensuring Jarry getting a starter’s...

Penguins & Riikola: Destined From the Beginning

Penguins visit beautiful Banff

An extended break during a long road trip across Canada gave the Penguins a chance to stop in Banff National Park for a bit of R&R. Long road trips present hockey teams with a great opportunity to bond and come together as a team. On Thursday night, the Penguins kicked off a 10-day Canadian road trip in Toronto, that will take the Pens west on their annual Western Canada swing of games against the Oilers, Flames, and Canucks. What sets this year’s trip apart from others in the past is the four day break between the team’s game in Toronto on Thursday night until their next game on...

Steelers open as 7-point favorites over Browns in Week 8

Steelers open as 7-point favorites over Browns in Week 8

Much like they were in Week 1, Pittsburgh is favored by seven points to beat the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. The Pittsburgh Steelers were far from impressive on opening day against the Cleveland Browns, but the two teams appear to have gone in opposite directions since Week 1. While the Browns are already in midseason form, losing three of their last four games, the Steelers have only lost once in their last four outings. Cleveland continues to find new and innovative ways to lose each Sunday and it was a 59-yard field by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that doomed the Browns to their second...
