Dan Rooney vocalizes his desire for a Pittsburgh Super Bowl

New York hosted an outdoor Super Bowl, so why shouldn't the City of Champions? Here's why a Pittsburgh Super Bowl by the close of the decade is likely. A Super Bowl played at Heinz Field by the close of the decade is a very real possibility. In January, Steelers chairman Dan Rooney vocalized his desire for Pittsburgh to become a host Super Bowl city in an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who is close with Rooney, said he wants "some new blood" in the mix of citys to host the 2019 Super Bowl, and surely will consider Pittsburgh along with...

DeAngelo Williams' potential role compares with Mewelde Moore's old role with the Steelers

DeAngelo Williams could fit a role that the Steelers have been trying to fill since 2011. The significance of that role could be very significant in Pittsburgh's 2015 campaign. When you think of the offensive weapons that the Pittsburgh Steelers had in the season when they won Super Bowl 43, you'll probably first think about Ben Roethlisberger, Hines Ward, Santonio Holmes, Willie Parker and Heath Miller. But one player that filled a significant role for the team that might not come to mind was Mewelde Moore; a decent spell back with speed to give Parker a reprieve and even have a few good...

The qualities that make someone a Hall-of-Famer

Without a quantitative way to determine someone's Hall-of-Fame candidacy, fans and players are left at the mercy of select media members to decide whether or not someone's career is deemed worthy of being immortalized in the Hall-of-Fame. Isn't there a better way to determine someone's Hall-of-Fame legitimacy? No one will ever convince me that Terrell Davis is not a Hall-of-Famer. I witnessed in person what he did to the Steelers, slashing though Pittsburgh's defense for 139 yards in the 1997 AFC Championship Game. I remember how he terrorized the Packers two weeks later in Super Bowl...

The time I was called "an idiot" by a member of the Steelers Super Bowl XLIII team

As a writer on BTSC, an extremely popular fan site dedicated to coverage of the Pittsburgh Steelers, I often forget how anyone--including current and former players---can read your stuff. I recently was taken to task via email by a member of the Steelers Super Bowl XLIII team for my criticism of his play, and it was an eye-opening experience. In the four-plus years I've been writing for BTSC, I've often joked that it would be nice to receive some hateful email from readers, email that included words like "idiot" to describe me and my knowledge of the Steelers and the game of...

Patrick Willis' career strikingly similar to Greg Lloyd's, another future HOF'er

Patrick Willis' career will most likely be immortalized in Canton, Ohio. So too should the career of Greg Lloyd, who had a career very similar to Willis, who recently retired after eight seasons at age 30. "Too bad his career was cut short." This comment, written in response to a story I wrote about Greg Lloyd and Kevin Greene last week, caught my attention. It was about Lloyd, and how he was never the same after suffering a serious injury in Week One of the 1996 season. Lloyd, 31-years-old at the time, was fresh off of five straight Pro Bowl selections and three consecutive All-Pro nods...
