Steelers name four team captains

Three first-time captains were named by the team to serve along side Ben Roethlisberger as team captains in 2014. For the first time in his likely Hall of Fame career, Steelers safety Troy Polamalu is a team captain. Not that he ever needed the distinction to be viewed as such, but a team currently caught in a youth movement is wise to use their most distinguished player as the symbol of leadership. Polamalu is one of four team captains, joining Ben Roethlisberger and two other first-time captains, Robert Golden and Shaun Suisham. Golden, the team's best special teams player in 2013, is a...

Browns vs. Steelers: Brian Hoyer is 'on the right side of this rivalry now'

Whether Brian Hoyer will be just another starting quarterback in Cleveland, he remembers his time in Pittsburgh, and even though he's thankful for it, he feels he's where he should be in Cleveland. (Video courtesy of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer and Cleveland.com) The 2012 season was bleak down the stretch. Amid a four-game winning streak, Chiefs outside linebackers Tamba Hali and Justin Houston crunched Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger simultaneously, forcing the veteran from the game, and putting him out for the next three contests. In all of that, the Steelers signed...

The Steelers and Panthers kick off at 7:30 p.m. Thursday from Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, the 12th straight year these teams have met in the preseason. It's the final preseason game for both teams, and with most starters not expected to play (Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has already been declared out, and Panthers QB Cam Newton is nursing a rib injury that should keep him out of action as well), the game is really...

Mike Tomlin should play Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount sparingly

Pittsburgh Steelers' head coach Mike Tomlin has made it known that Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount will play Thursday night against the Carolina Panthers. Tomlin should monitor their snaps wisely.

While Ben Roethlisberger, Troy Polamalu and Jason Worilds all rest and relax along with other starters, Tomlin seems determined to play his two starting...

Panthers vs. Steelers: Ben, Polamalu and others out, Jones to get most work at QB

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin stressed a need for the team ending its preseason schedule on an up note, right before declaring Troy Polamalu, Sean Spence, Jason Worilds and Lance Moore, along with Ben Roethlisberger, out for Thursday's game.

Steelers 53-man roster prediction: Loss to Eagles shows a few areas of concern

There probably aren't a whole lot of battles remaining on the team's roster, but other issues need to be accounted for at this point. The Steelers will make their initial cut down to 75 on Tuesday. Here's how we see the 53-man roster playing out right now. Offense (24) Quarterback (3) - Ben Roethlisberger, Bruce Gradkowski, Landry Jones No changes here. While Jones hasn't given a game-viewable reason to make this team, the team won't cut ties with him after two camps. Now, if they could get something by way of a trade...more on that in a bit. Running backs (5) - Le'Veon Bell, LeGarrette...

Steelers fantasy football: Value of Antonio Brown is rising

Steelers fantasy football: Value of Antonio Brown is rising

It was an otherwise forgettable game for the Steelers on both sides of the ball but Antonio Brown is continuing to show is value as a Fantasy receiver. Nothing else was really working offensively. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had connected with Antonio Brown a few times, and the pair looked as good in doing so as they usually do. But the best throw Roethlisberger made all night, in the team's 31-21 loss to Philadelphia, was a 27-yard strike to tight end Heath Miller. It was Miller's first touchdown this preseason and the second touchdown pass thrown by Roethlisberger that was caught in...

Steelers expecting big things from Wheaton

Second-year WR coming off injury-plagued rookie season After a productive offseason, Markus Wheaton and Ben Roethlisberger are on the same page. The first tangible evidence came Saturday night against Buffalo when he ran an excellent post-corner route and Roethlisberger dropped a perfect pass into Wheaton's hands. "He's been impressive," said veteran Lance Moore, who was signed in the offseason as a slot receiver. The Steelers decided not to re-sign Emmanuel Sanders because they believed Wheaton could develop into a dependable No. 2 receiver opposite Antonio Brown. Roethlisberger has...

Steelers Markus Wheaton focused on health, conditioning this offseason

Coming off an injury-plagued 2013 rookie campaign, Steelers WR Markus Wheaton has had a great preseason and looks to make an impact in the budding Steelers offense. PITTSBURGH -- It was late in the first quarter, and the Pittsburgh Steelers were in the red zone once again, looking to pad their lead against the Buffalo Bills in the second preseason game last Saturday night. Starting flanker Markus Wheaton, who just caught a pass for minus-1 yard on the previous play, raced across the field ahead of Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore. Ben Roethlisberger hit Wheaton with a perfect pass in the...

Martavis Bryant can learn from Antonio Brown's practice habits

Antonio Brown didn't have what Martavis Bryant has, physically. But Bryant can become an exceptional receiver if he pays attention to how Brown practices, Ben Roethlisberger told Post Gazette reporter Ray Fittipaldo. Steelers rookie wide receiver Martavis Bryant doesn't have to look far for inspiration. But he does need to pay strict attention to the practice habits of his fellow receivers. Particular, Antonio Brown. In a notebook entry from Post Gazette reporter Ray Fittipaldo, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger took a hard line with the rookie, challenging him to take his practice...
