Steelers dealing with injuries, and a short week, as they prepare for the Falcons

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports The Steelers have a quick turnaround before playing the Falcons in Week 13, and several players are dealing with injuries leading up to the game. The Pittsburgh Steelers were winners in Week 12 after beating the Indianapolis Colts 24-17 on Monday Night Football, and while the win was sweet the prime time victory also results in a short week afterwards. In Week 13 the Steelers have to turn the page quickly as they prepare for another road trip, to another dome, when the head south to play the Atlanta Falcons. Mike Tomlin met with media...

9 Winners and 5 Losers after the Steelers win over the Colts

Photo by Justin Casterline/ Time to take a look at who would be considered a ‘Winner’ and a ‘Loser’ after the Steelers latest action on the gridiron. The Pittsburgh Steelers were back on the field Monday when they played the Indianapolis Colts in Week 12 of regular season action. The Steelers were winners in the contest, but that doesn’t mean every player had a good or bad performance. Players who play well can be considered ‘Winners’, while those who left a lot to be desired can be called ‘Losers’. It may sound harsh, but it is the crux of this...

Steelers fans lose confidence as they blame Mike Tomlin for the poor start

Photo by Joe Sargent/ The Pittsburgh Steelers fan base isn’t feeling confident about the team, or the head coach moving forward. The Pittsburgh Steelers had their fans feeling good this past offseason. The free agent moves made and the 2022 NFL Draft class had the black-and-gold faithful feeling good. Then you throw in the fact the team went 3-0 in the preseason, and you’d believe confidence was brimming with the fan base. But throughout the preseason, several issues popped up with the team in all facets. Nonetheless, the hope was they’d fix it while they won...

A Letter From the Editor: Giving thanks to BTSC, and the Steelers

Photo by Zach Bolinger/Icon Sportswire via On this Thanksgiving, I want to take a minute to give thanks... Today is Thanksgiving here in the continental United States, and I realize many reading this don’t celebrate this holiday. That’s okay. Is there ever a bad time to give thanks? To show appreciation? To me, I don’t think that time exists. On this Thanksgiving I wanted to take the time to give thanks to a lot of people, and I want to start with you. Yes, you, the reader. Without you reading articles, being a part of the community and telling other Pittsburgh...
The Steelers fall short at a turning point in their season

The Steelers fall short at a turning point in their season

Sam Greene/The Enquirer / USA TODAY NETWORK Against the Bengals on Sunday, the split personality of a team not ready for prime time was clear for all to see. As anyone knows who remembers the Pittsburgh Steelers in the years preceding their first Super Bowl win, when an NFL team is several bricks shy of a load, it sometimes manages to conceal its flaws for a game here and there. But over the course of a grueling, 17-game season, the team’s true nature invariably emerges, particularly when facing quality opponents. In their Sunday matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals,...

Steelers are hoping for good news with several key injuries heading into Week 12

Photo by Justin K. Aller/ The Pittsburgh Steelers are dealing with several key injuries heading into a prime time game vs. the Colts in Week 12. The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off a disappointing 37-30 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals at home in Week 11, and the loss didn’t just plummet their record to 3-7, but also any legitimate thoughts of a revival of the season. But, even though the odds are against them, the Steelers still have seven games to play and there is a lot to learn about this team down the stretch. On the offensive side of the ball, questions about...

Steelers Week 11 snap counts show a team that is better, but still not good

Photo by Joe Sargent/ The Steelers score 30 points, and still lose. The Steelers highest scoring offensive output in a year came right with their defense giving up the most points they have given up in...5 weeks. The Bengals asserted themselves as the better team often in this game, and yet the Steelers only lost by a touchdown. We don’t usually take moral victories in Pittsburgh, but the growth of the young talent on offense is heartening, with their best two games on offense coming the last two weeks. Offense The offensive line outside of Mason Cole...

What was the game-changing moment in the Steelers loss to the Bengals?

What was the game-changing moment in the Steelers loss to the Bengals?

Photo by Justin K. Aller/ The Steelers were still in the game in the fourth quarter, but couldn’t take advantage of opportunities. The Pittsburgh Steelers once again fell in defeat for the seventh time in the 2022 season. Even though the offense scored 30 points, it was failing to put up points when they needed which made things get away from them in the fourth quarter. As for the defense, surrendering over 400 yards and giving up 37 points is not a recipe for winning games. But what was the biggest moment that sent the Steelers down the path to the loss? With each...

Steelers dealing with several injuries following the Week 11 loss to the Bengals

Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports The Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the Bengals in Week 11, and they also lost several key members in the process. The Pittsburgh Steelers were losers in Week 11 when they lost 37-30 to the Cincinnati Bengals at Acrisure Stadium. While the loss certainly stings, there was more lost than just the game. Throughout the game, and mainly the first half, the Steelers were without several key contributors for a variety of reasons. Following the loss, Mike Tomlin addressed the media and spoke about three players who were injured in-game, and were...
Knee Jerk Reaction to the Steelers 37-30 loss to the Bengals

Knee Jerk Reaction to the Steelers 37-30 loss to the Bengals

Photo by Justin K. Aller/ The Steelers offense just couldn’t keep things going in the second half. Knee-jerk reactions are immediate responses to a situation without taking the time to analyze the situation. That’s something as sports fans that we typically do. Especially if you are a full blood Yinzer, or even just a part Yinzer. As is the custom, I compile my knee-jerk thoughts and publish them immediately after each Steelers game (my son Kyle might have a few things to say as well). It’s my version of running my mouth first and apologizing later (or not). So...

See what is happening during the team’s late game. 1st Quarter In-Game Update 2nd Quarter In-Game Update The Steelers received the football to start the third quarter, but were unable to even muster a first down before giving the ball right back to Joe Burrow and the Bengals offense. Luckily for the Steelers, the Bengals’ next drive didn’t result in points after a sack by Alex Highsmith stalled the drive. Another Steelers 3-and-out gave the Bengals their second possession of the third quarter,...

The free agent moves made and the 2022 NFL Draft class had the black-and-gold faithful feeling good. Then you throw in the fact the team went 3-0 in the preseason, and you’d believe confidence was brimming with the fan base.

The Steelers have reached the crux of their season vs. the Bengals

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports The result of Sunday’s game may well determine the outcome of the 2022 season for Pittsburgh. The Steelers Week 10 win over the New Orleans Saints changed the outlook for their 2022 season. With the improvement to 3-6, the Steelers currently sit just 2 games out of a playoff spot in the AFC if the season ended today. It does not, obviously, but for Pittsburgh, where they end up when the NFL regular season wraps up on January 8th might very well be decided this week with the result of Sunday’s matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals...
It’s a sobering reality when the Steelers are the cause of a game getting flexed out of primetime

It’s a sobering reality when the Steelers are the cause of a game getting flexed out of primetime

Photo by Michael Hickey/ The struggling Steelers are the reason their game against the Bengals this Sunday was flexed out of primetime. That’s sad and a sobering reality. The Steelers AFC North clash against the Bengals at Acrisure Stadium on Sunday—a little AFC North home action—that was originally scheduled for primetime on NBC’s Sunday Night Football (in America) package has been flexed out of that timeslot and changed to a 4:25 p.m. kickoff on CBS. This makes me happy as someone who likes to binge-watch streaming television at night (my favorite thing to...
The Steelers will finally have their three safeties available vs. the Bengals

The Steelers will finally have their three safeties available vs. the Bengals

Photo by Justin K. Aller/ The Pittsburgh Steelers will finally have their three safeties available to them in Week 11 when they host the Cincinnati Bengals. The moment the Pittsburgh Steelers decided to sign Damontae Kazee to a one-year contract shortly after the 2022 NFL Draft, fans wondered how he would fit with the defense. After all, the team not only gave Minkah Fitzpatrick a big-money deal, but brought back Terrell Edmunds too. Three safeties make sense for depth, but Kazee was a player who had the pedigree of a starter. When fans started to dig deeper into the...

The Bengals know how T.J. Watt can single-handedly wreck a game

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports The Pittsburgh Steelers pass rusher has the Bengals’ full attention heading into Week 11. When it comes to AFC North football, there are certain players who stand out among the crowd. Players like Ja’Marr Chase of the Cincinnati Bengals, Lamar Jackson of the Baltimore Ravens, Nick Chubb of the Cleveland Browns, and for the Pittsburgh Steelers it would be T.J. Watt. The defending Defensive Player of the Year gets plenty of attention every week, but when facing the Bengals, a team Watt has done plenty of damage against in his career, the...

Expert Picks: Experts lean heavy on Bengals over the Steelers

Photo by Joe Sargent/ The Pittsburgh Steelers have an uphill climb, according to the experts, in Week 11 when they host the Cincinnati Bengals. The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals are slated to face off in Week 11 of the 2022 regular season, and there are a lot of narratives between these two teams. For the Bengals, they are trying to show they have bounced back after a lackluster start to show they are still in the mix as the cream of the crop in the AFC. To prove they are not just AFC contenders, but AFC favorites. As for the Steelers, they are coming off a...
