10 Things I think I thought as the Steelers played Tarzan, King of the Jungle vs. the Bengals

10 Things I think I thought as the Steelers played Tarzan, King of the Jungle vs. the Bengals

Time to recollect my thoughts which I think I thought during the Week 6 game vs. the Bengals. Though my heart is in full control during games, my mind does still work. These are the things that paraded through during our victory over the Bengals. Vontaze Burfict is the Big Kahuna of the NFL’s criminal element. (Warning: non-political comment coming that someone is sure to take offense at as a political comment.) If the NFL’s concern for player safety is more earnest than the safety pantomime that is the Airport TSA Players, then a looooooong suspension is coming his way. But don’t...

NFL reviewing 3 questionable plays by Burfict vs. Steelers

NFL reviewing 3 questionable plays by Burfict vs. Steelers

Burfict is now in danger of more punishment from the NFL for player-safety violations. Another week, another situation with Vontaze Burfict and NFL rules. This time, Burfict is under the microscope for several plays that happened during Sunday’s game between the Bengals and Steelers. By now, you probably know about Burfict’s hit on the helmet of Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown. That initially wasn’t expected to land Burfict a suspension, but a fine was possible. Now, it looks like there were other plays in question that happened Sunday which have the NFL taking a closer...

NFL Head of Officiating confirms there was no foul on Steelers game-winning TD

The Bengals always have imaginary complaints about the standard of refereeing when they lose to the Steelers, but the league has proved to be right on this call after all. Every time the Pittsburgh Steelers play the Cincinnati Bengals as of late, you can be sure of three things happening. Pittsburgh will win. Vontaze Burfict will do something stupid. Bengals fans will complain about a phantom penalty they believe cost them the game. The Steelers Week 6 encounter with Cincinnati followed the script impeccably on Sunday, with the controversial penalty for Bengals fans coming on Pittsburgh...

Report: NFL to investigate plays where Vontaze Burfict tried to injure members of the Steelers

Mr. Burfict might be hearing from the league office for his antics vs. the Steelers. The Pittsburgh Steelers, and their fans, know all about Vontaze Burfict’s antics. They have seen it on display on more than one occasion. No, it isn’t always the brutal hit to Le’Veon Bell, or Baltimore Ravens tight end Maxx Williams, but the plays which often go unnoticed. Stepping on players when getting out of a pile, twisting ankles and showing intent to injure. After a very questionable hit to the head of Antonio Brown during the Week 6 showdown at Paul Brown Stadium, the NFL is reportedly going...

The Debrief: Injured secondary and Vontaze Burfict

The Cincinnati Bengals head into Sunday’s game with a depleted secondary. And people have opinions on Vontaze Burfict. 1) Mounting injuries in the secondary. Cincinnati’s secondary could face a significant shortage this weekend. Speculation mounts that cornerback Darqueze Dennard and safety Shawn Williams may sit Sunday’s primetime contest against Kansas City. Dennard (sternoclavicular) and Williams (concussion) missed Wednesday’s practice, while backup safety Clayton Fejedelem, who replaced Williams last week against Pittsburgh, was listed as a limited participant. Another...
