All things considered, this season has gone pretty well for the 7-5 Pittsburgh Steelers. Doom and gloom may have reigned for the Steelers at times. Ben Roethlisberger’s season ended after not even two games. Mason Rudolph got beaned in the head with a helmet and was benched for third-stringer Devlin Hodges. JuJu Smith-Schuster and James […] Steelers must avoid looking ahead this week vs. the Cardinals - Still Curtain - Still Curtain - A Pittsburgh Steelers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

It’s okay to be cautious with your optimism about Steelers quarterback Devlin Hodges

Photo by Justin K. Aller/ It’s Duck Season in Pittsburgh, baby! Yeah, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be cautious with our optimism about Steelers rookie quarterback Devlin Hodges. It’s Duck Season. It’s Duckamania. It’s a quack-quack here, and a quack-quack there. Here a quack....you get the drift. I’m referring, of course, to Steelers rookie quarterback Devlin Hodges and the sensation he has quickly become since being named Pittsburgh’s starter following the Bengals game on November 24, a contest in-which he relieved struggling second-year quarterback Mason Rudolph...

Pittsburgh Steelers Fans: It is possible to love more than one quarterback

Photo: Scott R. Galvin-USA TODAY Sports A small portion of the Steelers’ fanbase feels the need to label anyone who was pulling for Mason Rudolph as “Duck Haters” First and foremost, I have to get this out of the way: I’m speaking to some fans. The keyword is some. Not all. There are some fans in Steelers’ Nation who feel people need to take sides when it comes to the Steelers quarterback situation. You like one, or you like another. I just don’t get this line of thinking. I made no secret that I was excited about the Steelers drafting Mason Rudolph, especially when they...

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports The Pittsburgh Steelers got the win for “Pounce”. The Pittsburgh Steelers did more than just beat the Cleveland Browns at Heinz Field in Week 13. They exorcised some demons which crept in during their Week 11 loss on Thursday Night Football. Now, don’t read that last sentence to believe the Browns somehow have an edge on the Steelers, that was evident at Heinz Field Sunday afternoon, but don’t think all that went down since Week 11 didn’t play a role.

Steelers Film Room: Mason Rudolph was rightfully benched for putting up three points in six drives vs. Cincinnati

Photo by Ian Johnson/Icon Sportswire via The Pittsburgh Steelers decided to go with Devlin Hodges midway through the Cincinnati Bengals Week 12 game, and there were plenty of reason why. Mercifully quarterback Mason Rudolph was benched Sunday against the now 0-11 Cincinnati Bengals. The sputtering offense led by the Oklahoma State product made two trips inside the red zone Sunday only to walk away with three points and an interception. Was Rudolph’s performance worthy of him getting benched, or worse when looking at the coach’s film? Was he as bad as his 8-16-85 and one interception...
