Le'Veon Bell named AFC North MVP, Ben Roethlisberger finishes second by ESPN

A breakout season catapulted the second year player into league-wide superstardom. Le'Veon Bell's ascension continues. On Friday, the second year running back was named most valuable player or the AFC North division by ESPN writers who cover the Steelers, Bengals, Browns and Ravens. Bell's 2,215 scrimmage yards were a franchise record, 42 shy of the NFL lead this season, and he became only the second player in league history to finish a reason with at least 1,300 rushing yards and 850 receiving yards, joining Hall of Fame RB Marshall Faulk. While Bell's numbers paint an accurate picture of...

Steelers pass protection struggles early in the season but finishes strong

It's been a tale of two half-seasons for the Pittsburgh Steelers in terms of pass protection. Early in the schedule the last two seasons, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is running for his life. The end of the year, he's barely getting touched. It's not a coincidence the Steelers' record is climbing when the temperature drops. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger declared his team to be "pretty much the worst team in the league" after a Week 4 defeat in London at the hands of the Minnesota Vikings. He was sacked a season-high five times in the loss, dropping the Steelers to 0-4, their...

Antonio Brown beats Jeremy Hill for AFC North Player of the Year

Jeremy Hill exploded onto the scene for the Bengals, but the Steelers' Antonio Brown was the best in the AFC North. Though Jeremy Hill had an outstanding rookie season, it wasn't enough to overtake what Antonio Brown did for the Steelers. Brown was named the AFC North Offensive Player of the Year by ESPN.com's NFL Nation writers. Brown, along with Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger and RB Le'Veon Bell, were the only three players to receiver first-place votes. Hill, along with Ravens running back Justin Forsett, each received a third-place vote. Though he didn't win the award, it says lot...

Steelers want to extend Big Ben soon - Ben Roethlisberger (QB) Pittsburgh Steelers

Owner Art Rooney II said the team wants to get Ben Roethlisberger's contract extension done as soon as possible.

Steelers President Art Rooney II: 'Not expecting a problem' with Ben Roethlisberger contract negotiations

Steelers' QB Ben Roethlisberger is entering the final year of his current contract, and Steelers President Art Rooney II isn't expecting a problem keeping Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh. Rooney on Ben: "We would like to get it done this offseason. I think it is fair to say the sooner the better. I am not going to put ... " — Mark Kaboly (@MarkKaboly_Trib) January 21, 2015 ...

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton named to the 2015 Pro Bowl

The 2015 pro bowl is increasingly being viewed as a joke with a significant number of players pulling out with minor bumps and bruises, fielding a team that didn't have all-star like seasons. Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has been added to the 2015 pro bowl team, the league announced on Tuesday. He was listed as the seventh alternate at quarterback. This is Dalton's second pro bowl in four seasons -- he also made the 2011 squad as an alternate. With Tom Brady exiting the pro bowl due to the Super Bowl and players like the Chargers Philip Rivers, Steelers Ben Roethlisberger,...

Ravens-Steelers rivalry had more offense than normal

The rivalry games weren't the low-scoring defensive slugfests of old. In the past, Ravens-Steelers games were defined by their low scores, hard-hitting defenses, and a last minute comeback by Joe Flacco/Ben Roethlisberger, and the odd Charlie Batch. This year, there were no late game heroics needed, as the winning team would win by a large margin in games where only one defense would come to play. First there was the Ravens 26-6 victory in Week 2. The Ravens would only punt twice and Joe Flacco was not sacked and was only hit once. Ben Roethlisberger on the other hand was sacked twice,...

Roethlisberger to skip Pro Bowl, doesn't need knee surgery

The Steelers prolific passer will sit out of the Pro Bowl in 2015 with knee pain, but won't require offseason surgery. The 2014 season was a long one for Ben Roethlisberger.  The two-time Super Bowl champion threw for more yards and threw more touchdowns than any Steeler has ever thrown, while leading his team to a somewhat surprising 11-5 record, complete with a shiny, new AFC North title.  Because of Roethlisberger's success, he was awarded a trip to the Pro Bowl, joining Aaron Rodgers, Tony Romo, Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady as quarterbacking representatives for the...

Tom Brady must take advantage of Ravens

Tom Brady must take advantage of Ravens

FOXBORO — Tom Brady will have a chance to devour the Ravens’ porous pass defense tomorrow in the divisional round of the playoffs.Of course, the great caveat is whether the Patriots offensive line will hold up its end by keeping Brady on his feet, which will be its greatest challenge.But from there, it’s going to be on Brady to slice through a Ravens defense that ranked 23rd against the pass in the regular season and surrendered 334 yards Saturday to Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Those weren’t of the garbage-time variety, either.

Steelers extend OC Todd Haley through 2016

Todd Haley has earned a two-year extension from the Steelers after coordinating an offense that ranked second in 2014. He is now under contract through 2016. Under Haley's guidance, the Steelers finished in the top 10 in points and yards per game for the first time since 2002. FANTASY ANALYSIS: On the fantasy side, Haley turned Antonio Brown into the most productive wide receiver in the NFL. He helped Le'Veon Bell become arguably the best overall running back in the league. And, after two years with a reportedly frosty relationship, Haley worked with Ben Roethlisberger to help him become a...

Steelers sign offensive coordinator Todd Haley through 2016 season

A historically good offense means Todd Haleys get to stick around in Pittsburgh for a while. Almost from the moment he was hired, it seems as if Todd Haley was universally disliked in Pittsburgh.  After an unsuccessful run as the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, the Steelers hired Haley in 2012 to serve as the offensive coordinator. From the get-go, Haley and incumbent quarterback Ben Roethlisberger seemed to butt heads over the direction of the offense; Haley opting to orchestrate a strict West Coast style system while Roethlisberger had spent his entire career up until that point...

Steelers quarterbacks coach Randy Fichtner feels Ben Roethlisberger is a Hall of Fame player

Roethlisberger just led the Steelers to their fifth AFC North title in the last 11 seasons, and his contract is likely to be extended this offseason. His position coach made his feelings clear on Roethlisberger's abilities. If there was any truth to the notion Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is incapable of putting him big-time numbers like his more statistically decorated peers in the NFL, they were put to rest in 2014. It won't result in any more individual accolades than it usually does; despite having a share of the passing title, Roethlisberger won't sniff the MVP award, and...
