Steelers to wear 40th Anniversary patch in honor of Super Bowl IX victory in Week 13

Their first title was won in New Orleans, and they'll honor the 40th anniversary of that game by wearing a patch in their Week 13 game against the Saints. The @steelers will wear this jersey patch on Sunday when the team celebrates the 40th Anniversary of Super Bowl IX. pic.twitter.com/NnLrEVCAbs — Burt Lauten (@SteelersPRBurt) November 24, 2014 It started it all. Five more titles would come after the Steelers' 16-6 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IX. The deposed Terry Bradshaw would storm back after a preseason benching to throw a touchdown pass in this game. Franco...

NFL Week 12 open thread

Go Falcons! Go Texans! While we're busy cheering for the Steelers to recover, relax and not get arrested during their bye week, we'll have to settle for rooting hard for the Houston Texans (again) and the Atlanta Falcons. Houston is hosing the Cincinnati Bengals, with both teams looking good in wins last weekend. The Texans gave the Steelers their second gift this year - the first being their acceptance of a beating on Monday Night Football in Week 7 at the hands of the Steelers - when they knocked off the Cleveland Browns. Now, they must tame the wildly unpredictable Bengals. The surging...

2015 NFL Pro Bowl: Which Steelers belong after 11 games

Some are pretty obvious, but a few may surprise you. The Steelers sit at 7-4, struggling with bad teams, competing with good ones. It's tough to get a sense of what this team is capable of becoming this season, and perhaps individual players are standing out over the team's final product. Those individual players have been excellent, though. Perhaps the best this team has had in the last few years. Those players will likely earn a trip to the 2015 Pro Bowl. Which ones? Offense QB Ben Roethlisberger - He's on pace to break franchise records in touchdown passes and passing yards, and became...

Browns analysis: Nate Ulrich breaks down 26-24 win over the Atlanta Falcons

What went right: With 29 carries for 162 yards (5.6 average) and two touchdowns, the Browns had their best production in the running game since they racked up 30 carries for 183 yards (6.1 average) and two touchdowns in the season opener Sept. 7 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It also was their best effort on the ground since Pro Bowl center Alex Mack suffered a season-ending broken left fibula on Oct. 12 in a rematch against the Steelers. So did fill-in center Nick McDonald and the rest of the offensive line play better than they had the past five weeks? Did rookie running backs Isaiah...

Week 12 Monday Night Football double bill Open Thread: Jets-Bills, Ravens-Saints

Oh yeah, the 2-8 New York Jets' rescheduled game against the 5-5 Buffalo Bills - at neutral venue Detroit (neutral, that is, assuming Jim Schwartz' little prank of having asked his Bills players to carry him off after winning there on his return earlier this season hasn't annoyed fans in Detroit, who may have taken advantage of free tickets... Imma call this the Hobo Bowl) - is already underway. At the normal time there'll be the 6-4 Baltimore Ravens - in need of a win to keep up with the Joneses Bengals, Steelers and Browns - visiting the New Orleans Saints, a Saints team that is 4-6 and...

Who are the QB Alternatives for the 2015 NY Jets?

With the news the Jets are going back to Geno Smith for their Monday Night Football encounter with bitter divisional rivals, the Miami Dolphins, I look at who's available next year for the Jets. After the Steelers game I felt good about bringing Vick back for another year to at least keep us competitive while we developed another quarterback.  After witnessing what we witnessed on Monday night, I’m no longer comfortable with this plan. One game a bad QB does not make, but Vick was let go by the Eagles for a reason and he was Geno’s back-up for a reason to start the season. As such I...
