Finally. The Pittsburgh Steelers have discovered the winning formula. And that formula is to let Ben Roethlisberger take control of the game and try to put up as many points as humanly possible. In this NFL, and with a defense that has Cortez Allen on it playing the way he is, no number of points will ever be enough. Keep scoring. Throw down field. Don’t throw it to Justin Brown in the red zone.

Points!

Steelers vs. Colts: Week 8

It’s another NFL Sunday where anything can happen.

The Steelers are 4-3 and have a chance to do something they have yet to do this season: Win two games in a row. Now would be a good time to start.

View From 522: Steelers vs. Texans

There are people that bet money — significant amounts of money — on the NFL, and I just can’t get over these people. They have to be nuts, because I have no idea how anybody can have any level of confidence about what is going to happen in the NFL on a given weekend. It’s a weird, crazy ass league, and somehow, the Pittsburgh Steelers, for as bad as they have looked at times, are entering Week 8 just one game out of not only a potential wild card spot, but also the AFC North division lead.

Insanity.

So how did they get here? A wild 30-23 win over the Houston Texans on Monday night that might have been one of the most entertaining, exciting and downright fun regular season games I’ve ever been to at Heinz Field.

Well, once you got past the first quarter. But the second quarter! Man, that made sitting through the first quarter worth it.

Steelers vs. Browns: Week 6

The Pittsburgh Steelers are underdogs in a game against the Cleveland Browns, something that has not happened in more than a decade. And that seems just fine since I have no idea what to expect from this team on a week-to-week basis.

The problem with the Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers followed the script in their 27-24 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday by losing an ugly game to a pig of team with a sloppy performance all over the field.

Whether it was the 2009 Browns, Raiders or Chiefs, or the 2012 Titans, Raiders, Browns or Chargers, or the 2013 Titans, Vikings or Raiders, this is the type of loss that we willl look back on after another 8-8  or 9-7 season and say, “well, if they had just won THAT game they would be in the playoffs right now.” 

It’s a regular thing lately and the type of loss that has defined the Pittsburgh Steelers over the past few season.

Steelers vs. Panthers: Week 3

I forgot to post a new discussion thread for the Thursday night game in Baltimore, so that’s probably why that game went the way it did. I’m here to fix that tonight. The Steelers are in Carolina on Sunday night for a game that pretty much everybody expects them to lose.

When that happens in sports, the opposite outcome tends to happen.
