3 things about the 2022 Steelers that may not be as bad as they seem

3 things about the 2022 Steelers that may not be as bad as they seem

Photo by Michael Hickey/ With two-straight losses, many Steelers fans feel that the sky is falling. But some things may not be as bad as they seem and could be turned around faster than expected. The Pittsburgh Steelers have started their 2022 NFL season with a 1–2 record. While being below .500 is never desirable, even early in the season, it’s the losing two-straight games which is more concerning. But is the overall situation really as bad as it seems? If nothing else, hopefully I can offer some perspective for Steelers fans going forward which may actually give...

A Letter From the Editor: If change is necessary, the Steelers’ options are extremely limited

A Letter From the Editor: If change is necessary, the Steelers’ options are extremely limited

David Dermer-USA TODAY Sports Steelers fans are clamoring for change, but their options are limited at every position. The Pittsburgh Steelers find themselves at a crossroads, and it’s only been three weeks. We all hoped for more, but I believe deep down inside our black-and-gold brains, we knew this could also be an outcome. We had all dreamt of Matt Canada’s offense being worked to perfection with new additions to the group. We had all had visions of Brian Flores’ imprint, along with Teryl Austin and Mike Tomlin, creating a freak-of-nature type defense who...

Cody Sabol & the story behind Mike Tomlin’s AF1 Steelers motivation project

Cody Sabol & the story behind Mike Tomlin’s AF1 Steelers motivation project

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports “I thought somehow, in this weird way, I’m going to be responsible for this loss.” In the moments before the Steelers left for their September 11th game against Cincinnati, the history books added a new chapter to the ongoing mythology of Mike Tomlin. Black Nike Air Force 1s for everyone. A gift from Mike Tomlin, and a motivating message that resonated across the locker room and the country. The plan was set in motion a week early when Pittsburgh cleat king Cody Sabol got a call from the Steelers head of equipment, Adam...

Distribution Map: What game Steelers fans will get to see in Week 3

Distribution Map: What game Steelers fans will get to see in Week 3

The Steelers have already played the Week 3. What game will you get to see? If you were like me, before I decided to sign up for the DirecTV Sunday Ticket package every week I was wondering whether I’d be able to watch my beloved Steelers in the comfort of my own home, or if I’d have to go elsewhere to watch the game. Before there were websites devoted to this, it meant a lengthy trip on the television guide screen to see which game was scheduled to air, but now it’s just a click away. So, even though the Steelers have already played this week, check out which games...

Saturday Night Open Thread: PFF(tt)...

Photo by Joe Sargent/ Come and join this merry band of Steelers’ faithful for some lively debate about our Steelers, good food, music, and the merits of the odd cold beverage. Well, that wasn’t fun on Thursday. It’s Saturday afternoon here and I am still feeling a bit underwhelmed with the entire offense. Thursday nights are made for Steelers football and well...I mean it certainly is offensive, so at least we have that. I mean how bad can it get? Heck, we don’t even have a stat sheet that proves (yet again) that T.J. is superior to that PFF Darling, Myles....

The Steelers see a drop in Week 3 defensive PFF grades

David Dermer-USA TODAY Sports In the grades provided by PFF from Week 2, a number of players with strong performances last week fell off four days later. The Pittsburgh Steelers dropped their second-straight game as they traveled to Cleveland on a short week. The offense showed some life in the first half, but the ability to get key first downs cost them down the stretch. As for the defense, the sheer volume of rushing attempts they faced shot up the yardage despite the Steelers being the more efficient team on the ground. But how did the individual players grade...

Steelers head into their ‘mini bye’ with injuries not being a concern

Steelers head into their ‘mini bye’ with injuries not being a concern

Katie Stratman-USA TODAY Sports The Pittsburgh Steelers are a relatively healthy team heading into Week 4. The Pittsburgh Steelers are reeling after their Week 3 loss to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday Night Football. The 1-2 record has left a sour taste in players, coaches and fans’ mouths alike, but if there is a positive with the Steelers heading into Week 4 it is the health of the team. Following the loss in Cleveland, Mike Tomlin said in his post-game press conference the only injury of note was a hamstring injury to starting cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon....

Brian Baldinger breaks down what went wrong for the Steelers vs. the Browns

David Dermer-USA TODAY Sports The Pittsburgh Steelers were losers in Week 3, and Brian Baldinger breaks down what went right, and what went really wrong. The Pittsburgh Steelers were on the losing end of their AFC North divisional game vs. the Cleveland Browns in Week 3 on Thursday Night Football, and there was plenty which went wrong during the 29-17 loss. Whether it was the play calling, defense’s inability to stop the run or playmakers just not stepping up when it mattered most, the list of what went wrong is long compared to the alternative. When it comes to...
