Al Riveron explains the overturned pass interference non-call in Steelers vs. Seahawks

Al Riveron explains the overturned pass interference non-call in Steelers vs. Seahawks

Photo by Justin Berl/ VP of NFL officiating Al Riveron tried to explain why the officials in New York overturned the non-call in the Week 2 contest. There were several plays in the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Seattle Seahawks Week 2 game which had fans wondering “what if”. The personal foul call against Daniel McCullers on a Seahawks field goal gave the Seahawks a new set of downs, and resulted in a Seahawks touchdown. Donte Moncrief had a pass sail right through his hands and into the lap of a diving Seahawks defender. That play resulted in another Seattle touchdown. Here is the...

Report: Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger to undergo MRI on elbow, had discomfort all week

Photo by Joe Sargent/ The Pittsburgh Steelers’ starting quarterback will undergo testing to show the extent of the damage done to the elbow on his throwing arm. The Pittsburgh Steelers are wondering what the short-term future has in store for their franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. After leaving the game at the end of the second quarter, he never returned to the game and was replaced by backup Mason Rudolph. After the game Mike Tomlin said Roethlisberger’s elbow will be evaluated, and he has no further information on the injury. As expected, Roethlisberger will undergo an MRI...

Knee-Jerk Reactions after the Steelers awful 28-26 loss to the Seahawks

Knee-Jerk Reactions after the Steelers awful 28-26 loss to the Seahawks

Photo by Justin K. Aller/ One BTSC writer shares his real-time, initial thoughts of the Steelers first home contest of 2019, a big one, against the Seattle Seahawks. Here we go! The Steelers got a chance to wash off the stench of that sickening loss last week to the Pats. A better game plan was helpful, but Donte Moncrief, a horrible call, a couple of big injuries and a tiring defense got in the way of that. Nonetheless, a simple reminder, a knee jerk reaction is an immediate and unthinking, emotional reaction. It’s basically shooting first and apologizing later. I can safely say...

Russell Wilson and Seahawks sink Steelers to 0-2 after 28-26 win

Photo by Joe Sargent/ The Pittsburgh Steelers lose back-to-back games after a 28-26 home loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The Pittsburgh Steelers were chomping at the bit for their Week 2 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks to get the nasty taste out of their mouths after their Week 1 flop against the New England Patriots. Russell Wilson and company came into Heinz Field hoping to go 2-0, and the Steelers trying to avoid the dreaded 0-2 start. Pittsburgh started the game with the football, but picked up right where they left off in New England going three-and-out on their first possession....

Watt forced fumble, Roethlisberger and the offense took the ball inside the red-zone, and after a defensive pass interference call set them up at the one yard line, James Conner took care of the rest and plunged into the endzone for the team’s first touchdown of the season. Chris Boswell’s extra point gave the Steelers an early 7-0 lead. In need of a response, Russell Wilson put together a masterful...

Predicting the winner of Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Seattle Seahawks, Week 2

Photo by Maddie Meyer/ Predicting the winner of Steelers vs. Seahawks in Week 2 for the home opener at Heinz Field. The Pittsburgh Steelers are in desperate need of a win. Not that their Week 2 game vs. the Seattle Seahawks is a must-win game, but after falling flat in Week 1 vs. the New England Patriots in Week 1, the Steelers need to get right. Could the Seahawks be just the right elixir for what ails the Steelers? I wouldn’t go that far, not as long as Russell Wilson is still the quarterback of the Seahawks. That man has a unique ability to always stay in the game, and pulling some...

Identifying the X-Factors for the Steelers in Week 2 vs. the Seahawks

Photo by Joe Sargent/ There are several players for the Steelers who could be viewed as ‘X-Factors’ leading up to the game. The Pittsburgh Steelers are preparing for the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2 at Heinz Field. It is the home opener for the Steelers, and hopefully one of many wins during the 2019 regular season. When looking at the matchup between AFC and NFC, there are players who can be viewed as ‘X-Factors’. What is an ‘X-Factor’? I would describe an ‘X-Factor’ as a player who can truly alter the outcome of the game, single-handedly. Not just a plug and play type...

Seahawks DE Ziggy Ansah not expected to play vs. the Steelers in Week 2

Photo by Alika Jenner/ The Seahawks will be without a prolific defender in Week 2 when they play the Steelers at Heinz Field. The Pittsburgh Steelers are in a tough spot after a dreadful Week 1 performance vs. the New England Patriots has left the team 0-1. With their home opener on deck in Week 2, the Seattle Seahawks pose a formidable foe to the home team, in their hopes of sending them into an 0-2 abyss. For the Seahawks to accomplish this feat, they will want all hands on deck, and one hand they were hoping would be ready to play in Week 2 was defensive end Ziggy Ansah. Ansah, who...

A Seahawks player no one is talking about that could impact the Steelers game

Photo by Otto Greule Jr/ The Pittsburgh Steelers could have to deal with Rasheem Green in their Week 2 matchup. When looking at a potential matchup the Pittsburgh Steelers fan base might not know, there are plenty to find when talking about the NFC West Seattle Seahawks. As a team who resides in the AFC North, news on the NFC West isn’t considered the most discussed news when it comes to the black-and-gold. So, with an already unfamiliar foe coming to Heinz Field in Week 2, I asked Field Gulls, SB Nation’s Seattle Seahawks website, editor Kenneth Arthur if he could list one player...
