CBS Sports lead sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson said domestic violence has no place in society, let alone in the NFL.
Steelers cornerback William Gay knows that being a good, open communicator on the field can push Pittsburgh to perform better as players. Gay’s refreshing communication off the field regarding the Ray Rice domestic violence issue has conversation about the NFL and players going in a new direction.
Roethlisberger says the offense made a couple of mistakes on offense in second half that stalled drives and made it look worse than it was.
In his teleconference with the Baltimore media, Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin joked about last year’s gaffe which found him in the field of play during a Jacoby Jones kickoff return and subsequently cost the Ravens a touchdown.
Days before arguably the biggest rivalry in the NFL, the Ravens are trying to focus on a game with the Steelers. Not the mess their former tailback caused off of it.
The Pittsburgh Steelers (1-0) will face the Baltimore Ravens (0-1) at M&T Bank Stadium during Thursday Night Football on Sept. 11, 2014. Both teams need to make quick improvements to areas, mainly on defense, that could decide their fate in the AFC North rivalry game.
Steelers Cornerback William Gay is all too familiar with domestic violence as he lost his own mother due to domestic violence when he was just 7-years-old. Today, Gay spoke out in the Steelers lockeroom about the latest Ray Rice video that has surfaced and his thoughts on the situation.
Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin singled out three players for their performance during week one and also said they must be better in week two if they want to win at Baltimore Thursday night.
The Steelers poor start last year was mirrored by the start from its quarterback. Ben Roethlisberger threw 5 interceptions and was sacked 15 times in the first 4 games, all losses. That has been talked about with this team,“We always want to start fast,” Roethlisberger said.
Acknowledging he “didn’t get it right” with a two-game suspension for Ravens running back Ray Rice, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced tougher penalties for players accused of domestic violence, including six weeks for a first offense and at least a year for a second.
The Carolina Panthers cut the face of the franchise, Steve Smith, and let the only other three wide receivers on the roster that caught a pass last season leave as free agents. Tight end Greg Olsen is the only proven receiver returning from last season’s squad. Olsen should be Cam Newton’s favorite target this season.
The Ravens made huge strides to improve what turned out to be a putrid offense in 2013. But one of the few bright spots on the offensive side of the ball was Marlon Brown. An undrafted rookie from Georgia with a lot to prove, and loads of potential to do just that.
Many experts would agree that the Cleveland Browns are trending in the right direction for the first time since they last had a winning record in 2007, but not many are ready to call them the team to beat in the AFC North.
What if we told you that the Pittsburgh Steelers would finish third in the AFC North behind the Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens, missing the playoffs for the third year in a row.
No matter what Ray Rice said yesterday, it can’t change what he did or the near-universal perception that aristocrats get more chances than we do. But Rice made one refreshing statement: His wife could do no wrong.
