Steve Treu: No matter where they play, Steelers offer pitiful performances
So you are sitting there on the couch yesterday watching the Steelers-Vikings game beside your annoying friend. You know, the one who screams too much at the TV like the guy “Ramsey” in the Bud Light commercial.
Steve Treu: Cutler’s feet put winless Steelers in huge hole
The moment the Pittsburgh Steelers’ playoff chances came to an end was pretty simple to spot. With just over nine minutes left in the game on a running clock, trailing by only four points, the Steelers seemingly had Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler sandwiched in the pocket for a sack on third-and-10 deep in his own territory.
Steve Treu: Yep, the Steelers are pretty sorry, so let’s go Bucs!
So your Pittsburgh Steelers are 0-2, no big deal. You always have the Pirates to cheer for in October. (That cool breeze you just felt was a waft of air gusting up from a suddenly chilly down under. And I mean waaaay down under, not Australia down under.)
Steve Treu: You want a silver lining for Steelers? All I’ve got is a eulogy
The football quintuple-hopped idyllically downfield, a picturesque boot executed just as Shaun Suisham had dreamed of all off-season. The bounding knuckler by the hamstrung kicker clearly confused Titans return man Darius Reynaud, who seemed to be hypnotized by the amateurish looking kick.
Steelers Football: Pittsburgh ends preseason without a win
Ted Ginn Jr. is proving coach Ron Rivera is right — he can still blow the top off a defense. The 28-year-old Ginn is earning himself a home in Carolina, catching five passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns to lift the Panthers to a 25-10 preseason win over the Pittsburgh Steelers last night.
Steelers Football: Rookie linebacker released from hospital
Steelers rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones was released from the hospital yesterday after being treated for a chest injury. The team said yesterday that tests were negative, but did not say what tests the first-round pick from Georgia underwent or whether he’ll play in the preseason finale Thursday at Carolina.
Steelers Football: Rookie's foot injury apparently not serious
Le’Veon Bell’s rehab from a sprained foot includes an exercise that requires the Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back to pick up marbles with his toes. “Nothing crazy,” Bell said with a laugh. And, apparently, nothing serious either.
Steelers fall — and so does another Redskins’ QB
Kirk Cousins limped past Robert Griffin III’s locker, using crutches and wearing a stabilizing boot. “He’s OK, people,” Griffin told the awaiting group of reporters. He’d better be. The Washington Redskins are running out of healthy quarterbacks.
Youngsters taking over on Steelers' defensive line
Casey Hampton's deep belly laugh, the one that could cut the tension in a meeting room or light up the sideline in an instant, is gone. So is the massive backside that could send opposing centers back onto their heels and the wisdom that comes with being a five-time Pro Bowler.
Steelers News: Big Ben undergoes knee surgery
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger underwent what coach Mike Tomlin called "minor" surgery on Wednesday to deal with lingering discomfort in his right knee.
