• Steelers Get Back Wide Out Martavis Bryant Following Conditional Lift of Suspension

    The Steelers got back a weapon today to their offense, as the NFL officially announced the lifting of the suspension for wide receiver Martavis Bryant on a conditional basis.

    Steelers GM Kevin Colbert put out the following statement following the NFL’s announcement:

    Martavis Bryant has followed the protocol and has been conditionally reinstated by the National Football League. We appreciate that he has taken the necessary steps in an effort to get his personal life in order. We also understand this is just the beginning as he works to return to the team and meet all of the conditions of his reinstatement.

    We look forward to working with Martavis to ensure that he is mentally and physically prepared to contribute to our efforts on the field, while also maintaining the proper balance to keep his life in order off the field.

    The NFL Stated in their release that they would evaluate the progress of Bryant before the start of the season:

    The NFL notified MARTAVIS BRYANT of the Pittsburgh Steelers today that he has been reinstated to the NFL on a conditional basis.

    Bryant may join the Steelers at the training facility and participate in meetings, conditioning work and similar activities. Once arrangements have been confirmed regarding Bryant’s clinical resources in Pittsburgh, he will be permitted to participate in all preseason activities, including practices and games.

    Prior to the start of the regular season, the NFL will review Bryant’s progress. Based on his compliance and engagement with his program and resources, he will be permitted to participate in all regular season activities beginning in Week 1. He will be evaluated later in the season for full reinstatement.

    Bryant had been suspended since March 2016 without pay following multiple violations of the NFL-NFLPA Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

  • A Look at the 2017 Steelers Schedule with a Glance at the Good and the Bad

    The 2017 NFL Schedule is out as well as the 2017 Pittsburgh Steelers Schedule, and here’s a look at the slate for the upcoming season, with the home games in bold:

    Sep. 10 at Cleveland Browns 1:00 PM

    Sep. 17 Minnesota Vikings 1:00 PM

    Sep. 24 at Chicago Bears 1:00 PM

    Oct. 1 at Baltimore Ravens 1:00 PM

    Oct. 8 Jacksonville Jaguars 1:00 PM

    Oct. 15 at Kansas City Chiefs 4:25 PM

    Oct. 22 Cincinnati Bengals 1:00 PM

    Oct. 29 at Detroit Lions * 8:30 PM

    Nov. 5 BYE

    Nov. 12 at Indianapolis Colts 1:00 PM

    Nov. 16 Tennessee Titans (Thu) 8:25 PM

    Nov. 26 Green Bay Packers * 8:30 PM

    Dec. 4 at Cincinnati Bengals (Mon) 8:30 PM

    Dec. 10 Baltimore Ravens * 8:30 PM

    Dec. 17 New England Patriots 4:25 PM

    Dec. 25 at Houston Texans (Mon) 4:30 PM

    Dec. 31 Cleveland Browns 1:00 PM

    What’s Good about this Schedule: Back-to-Back home primetime games on November 16th and 10 days later on November 26th, and then three of the last four home are two keys for this team to repeat at AFC North Champs, with that odd Christmas Day game (which the NFL Said wouldn’t happen) in the mix against the Texans.

    What’s Bad about this Schedule: Three of the first four on the road, but two of those against bad teams in the Browns and Bears, but that doesn’t mean the Steelers can just mail it in and assume they will win those matchups. This team needs to stay focused and get off to a hot start to make sure they repeat as the best in the North in 2017.

  • Steelers and the Rest of the NFL Schedule Set to Come Out Thursday Night

    One of the more anticipated moments of the NFL offseason is set to take place Thursday night, and no we’re not talking about the 2017 NFL Draft.

    It’s the NFL Schedule release, and unlike last season it doesn’t appear Steeler fans will have to wait that extra day to see the black and gold for the first time like in 2016 when they opened the schedule on Monday night in D.C. against the Redskins.

    This year the Steelers have the following teams on the schedule, and we’ll now about 8:03pm tomorrow what the dates will be for all their games:

    AWAY – Baltimore, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City.

    Minus the three division opponents, the Steelers played at two of the venues last season they will play in again in 2017, Indy and KC. They beat the Colts Thanksgiving night without Andrew Luck, and beat the Chiefs in the AFC Divisional Playoff game thanks to a bunch of Chris Boswell field goals.

    HOME – Baltimore, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Green Bay, Jacksonville, Minnesota, New England, Tennessee

    The Steelers lost at home last season to the Pats in a game that Landry Jones started for Ben Roethlisberger who was coming off surgery. The Packers game will be a great home matchup, as it’s a Super Bowl XLV rematch, and could be the last time Ben goes up against Aaron Rodgers.

    Stay tuned to Steelers Gab for the release of the 2017 slate.

  • Former President Barack Obama Mourns the Death of Dan Rooney

    Steelers owner and chairman Dan Rooney was not only a monster in the game of football, but he’ll also go down a A patriarch and ambassador for his country.

    Rooney served as the 33rd Ambassador to Ireland, selected for that role by President Barack Obama in 2009, and he kept the position until 2012.

    Following the death of Rooney on Thursday, the former US President put out a statement about the passing, giving respect to the former Steelers owner.

    “Dan Rooney was a great friend of mine, but more importantly, he was a great friend to the people of Pittsburgh, a model citizen, and someone who represented the United States with dignity and grace on the world stage. I knew he’d do a wonderful job when I named him as our United States Ambassador to Ireland, but naturally, he surpassed my high expectations, and I know the people of Ireland think fondly of him today.

    “And I know the people of Pittsburgh, who loved him not only for the Super Bowl championships he brought as the owner of the Steelers, but for his generosity of spirit, mourn his passing today. Michelle and I offer our condolences to the Rooney family, some of the most gracious and thoughtful people we know — even as we celebrate the life of Dan Rooney: a championship-caliber good man.”
