  • Steelers Release Former Cleveland First-Round Pick CB Justin Gilbert

    The Steelers made a move last September adding former Cleveland Browns first-round pick Justin Gilbert to the roster, and in just one season they determined he wasn’t worthy of a roster spot despite his draft status.

    Today the team released Gilbert, a player who never lived up to the hype and likely will have a tough time finding future work in the NFL.

    Gilbert didn’t do all that much for the Steelers after the Browns traded him to Pittsburgh in a rare inter-divisional move in early September.

    He returned some kicks in the postseason for the black and gold, but didn’t do much in terms of their defense and most of the season ended up on the inactive list.

     
  • The City of Pittsburgh All Seemed to Watch the Super Bowl; Can the Steelers Get to the Next One?

    If you meet anyone from Pittsburgh today who told you they didn’t watch Tom Brady and the New England Patriots win Super Bowl LI on Sunday, they are probably lying.

    Overall the Steel City had the best ratings of ANY in the country when it come to TV ratings for the annual super showdown between the NFC and AFC, drawing a crazy 57.9 share last night.

    They beat out Buffalo (57.2) and Atlanta (57.0) as the top city in America that watched Sunday’s wild Pats comeback, led by Brady, as they beat the Falcons in the first Super Bowl overtime 34-28.

    With Super Bowl LI over, already the odds are out for what teams to look for next season, and what teams are favorites to make a trip to Minnesota for Super Bowl LII.

    Sites like whichbettingsites.com have the Steelers high up on the list not only in the AFC, but overall when it comes to the top teams in the NFL.

    Right now the black and gold are listed at 10-1 odds to make it to the Super Bowl, meaning if you put $10 on the Steelers to get to the dance next year and they do, you would take home $100.

    The Patriots, fresh off their 5th ring, are the top AFC team and are at the top of the list, sitting at 5-1 to repeat as AFC Champs and get back to the Super Bowl.

    Of course all bets about the black and gold are off if the stunning revelation after the season by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger that he might not come back in 2017 turns out to be true.

    You would have to think if the two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback decides to hang it up, the odds of the Steelers going back to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 2010 season would be drastically different, and not in a good way.

    So what are the chances the Steelers finally overcome and get back to the Super Bowl next season? Well, the biggest offseason issues will be the new deal for WR Antonio Brown, as well as getting something done with free agent running back Le’Veon Bell.

    Also making sure to keep their franchise quarterback happy is of the upmost importance as well, as if the team loses Ben, things are going to change drastically.

    It’s a shame that Brady didn’t get up on the platform last night and say he’s walking away, as that would change things drastically in the NFL as well.

    For now, the Pats will continue to be the biggest block in the way of the Steelers playing in the biggest game of the year.

     
  • Antonio Brown Sticks Up For Le’Veon Bell in His Ongoing Fight with Skip Bayless

    In a week where there’s a lot more talking than anything else, everyone is getting ready for Super Bowl Sunday as the Patriots play the Falcons down in Houston.

    There’s an off the field fight going on between Fox hot air blower Skip Bayless and Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell. If you’ve missed it, it’s included Bell going after Bayless (who says he’s not the best RB in the NFL), with a rap song, and Bayless fighting back.

    Today things got even more fun between Bayless and Bell as Steelers all-world wide out Antonio Brown, as AB was on the ‘Undisputed’ sticking up for his buddy and running back.

     
  • NFL Looking Into Le’Veon Bell Injury and If the Steelers Reported It Correctly

    While the Steelers are still licking their wounds over a disaster of an AFC Title Game last week, there’s now news that the NFL is looking into the injury for running back Le’Veon Bell.

    The NFL is looking to see if the team properly listed Bell on the injury report, an injury that eventually ended his game and most of the running output for the Steelers in the 19-point loss.

    Here’s the report from ESPN:

    The NFL is investigating whether the Pittsburgh Steelers properly listed running back Le’Veon Bell on last week’s injury reports, a source told ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter on Friday.

    Bell said after Sunday’s AFC Championship loss to the New England Patriots that he had been managing a groin injury in recent weeks. Bell was hurt in the game and carried the ball five times for 18 yards.

    Bell got consecutive Wednesdays off during the playoffs with a “not injury related” designation, and, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Bell had an excused absence on Jan. 19. A source close to Bell told ESPN that the absence was specifically for a personal matter and not groin-related.

    What could come of the eventual situation with Bell and will the Steelers get punished? It’s probably going to be nothing more than a slap on the wrist if anything, but as usual with the NFL, you never know what’s going to happen.

     
  • Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger Doesn’t Commit to a Return to the Team for 2017

    The Steelers may very well have a major problem on their hands in 2017 if the words of their franchise quarterback mean anything.

    According to 93.7 The Fan in an interview earlier today, Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger says that he’s got to “consider all options” about coming back to the NFL and the black and gold next season.

    The following comes from “The Cook and Poni Show” earlier today

    “I’m going to take this offseason to evaluate, to consider all options,” Ben stated. “To consider health, and family and things like that and just kind of take some time away to evaluate next season, if there’s going to be a next season.”

    The Steelers two-time winning Super Bowl QB will be 35 in March, and just wrapped up his 13th NFL season.

    This past year he threw for 3,819 yards, 29 touchdowns and 13 picks and a QB rating of 95.4

    The hosts asked flat out if Ben was going to return for a 14th NFL season, to which he replied: “I’m going to take some time and evaluate with my family and just do a lot of praying about it and make sure it’s the right thing for me and my family.”
