Steelers CB Taylor welcomes shot at Calvin Johnson
Forget the exotic coverage schemes. Throw out the double teams. Oh, and the triple teams too.
Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor figures there’s only one way to keep up with Detroit wide receiver Calvin Johnson.
“You have to take him mano y mano,” Taylor said.
Roethlisberger focused on Lions, not rumors
Ben Roethlisberger is done talking about his future.
There’s too much at stake in the present to give it any thought.
The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback reiterated Wednesday he’s done talking about a report last weekend that he will ask the Steelers to explore trade options for him in the offseason. He’s always been a Steeler.
Steelers turn back clock to break out of funk
The ball was snapped and Jarvis Jones sprinted forward.
A moment later, he was in the Buffalo Bills backfield. A split second after that, Buffalo quarterback E.J. Manuel tumbled meekly to the Heinz Field turf in apparent surrender. Jones stood up and walked back to the Pittsburgh Steelers huddle. No big celebration. No histrionics necessary.
Steelers bounce back, beat Bills
The Pittsburgh Steelers spent three hours making Buffalo quarterback EJ Manuel look very much like the rookie he is.
Old times for a defense that has looked just plain old recently?
“No,” safety Ryan Clark said. “We used to be much better than that.
“It was a good day, though.”
Steelers hoping for 2006 replay after 2-6 start
Ben Roethlisberger has already hit the reset button.
Sure, the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback has no problem discussing his team’s miserable 2-6 start. He’d just rather not dwell on it. Last he checked, there’s still half a season to go and eight opportunities to turn the narrative that the Steelers are in decline on its head.
Big Ben has big numbers in 55-31 loss to Pats
Ben Roethlisberger threw for 400 yards and four touchdowns while leading the Pittsburgh Steelers offense to 31 points against the New England Patriots.
Steelers hope to jump-start subpar season
Either the Pittsburgh Steelers or New England Patriots have been in eight of the last 12 Super Bowls. They’ve won five of them.
Don’t expect them to return this season, especially the Steelers.
Steelers rookie LB Vince Williams gaining confidence
Vince Williams wasn’t supposed to grow up this quickly.
The Pittsburgh Steelers’ rookie linebacker ended up not having a choice.
A season-ending injury to veteran Larry Foote and inconsistent play by Kion Wilson has thrust Williams into a starting role, and while fellow rookie Jarvis Jones struggles to learn the intricacies of Pittsburgh’s 3-4 defense, Williams is quietly holding his own.
Raiders beat Steelers, 21-18, for rare post-bye win
Terrelle Pryor took the opening snap of the game, put the ball in Darren McFadden’s belly and saw LaMarr Woodley crash down.
New-look Steelers line coming together
The names are not the ones Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin penciled in atop the depth chart when the season began.
Still, unlikely starting offensive linemen Kelvin Beachum and Fernando Velasco will have a say in Pittsburgh’s fortunes.
