Wk 14 recap Steelers vs Browns: Who Are These Guys?

I’d wager that, in the Summer of 2018, a large percentage of even diehard football fans of your Pittsburgh Steelers had next to no idea who half the guys who played yesterday were. Devlin Hodges Deon Cain Telvin Jones Benny Snell Kerrith Whyte Jaylen Samuels Nick Vannett Matt Feiler B.J. Finney Diontae Johnson Steven Nelson...

Wk 13 recap Steelers at Bengals: Rudolph’s Last Stand

Rudolph’s Last Stand: A Microcosm Someday, long after Paul Brown Stadium is demolished and long after the 0-16 Cincinnati Bengals of 2019 are forgotten, they’ll have a National Park dedicated to the site of the last Mason Rudolph pass. Visitors will get a Gettysburg-style pictograph to show them the positions of both sides of the...

A Long Look at the 2020 Steelers Offseason

by Scunge Let us turn our attention to the upcoming offseason, of 2020, and how difficult it is going to be. I can’t remember a time that the Steelers had so many players up for free agency, both as unrestricted, restricted free agents or playing in the last year of their contracts. These are the...

Wk 11 recap Steelers at Browns: Purgatory

Purgatory. Damned if you do, Damned if you don’t. Somewhere between Hell and the sublime.   Ladies and gentlemen: your 2019 Pittsburgh Steelers!   I am an not an NFL coach, but if I were, I’d try to build a team based around making the best decisions for each player. It is hard to treat...

Wk 10 recap Rams at Steelers: Third Down’s the Charm

The Pittsburgh Steelers of 2019 are writing a story for themselves that defies the odds. It features a defense that has been transformed since the arrival of Minkah Fitzpatrick and just enough contributions from its young QB and its special teams. What that defense did yesterday was obvious: they took Jared Goff’s soul, buried Sean McVay’s...

Wk 9 Recap Colts at Steelers: The Indy .500

It was a win Vince Lombardi would have loved. I mean, he’s the one who coined the phrase, “Winning isn’t everything… it’s the only thing”, right? A win is a win is a win is a win. Not only that, but it gets this team somehow, someway to the .500 mark, after a disastrous 1-4 start....

Wk8 recap Dolphins at Steelers: Growing Pains

We understood that things with a young quarterback weren’t likely to be easy, and especially so with one coming off getting KTFO in his most recent appearance–some three weeks earlier. In fact, if you heard last week’s podcast, you know that I was probably the least surprised person in the world on Monday night, when the...

Wk 6 Recap Steelers at Chargers: Deja Vu All Over Again

Other than bad officiating on purpose, nothing chafes my sense of righteousness like bad behavior and stupid philosophies being rewarded. The NFL changed its game to reward scaredy-cat QBs who couldn’t take a hit, dumped the ball off underneath, and would never take chances with the football. Now, they’re all the rage and statistically superior to...

Wk 5 recap Ravens at Steelers: Shame, Shame, Shame!

You can blame coaching and the mistakes early in the game all you want:  this game was STOLEN from the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Defense ended this game like champions. The offense made plays to erase the lead and went ahead in Q4 with their 3rd string, rookie UDFA QB. The Special teams cost the team...
