Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert joined The Fan Morning Show on Thursday to give his take on the 2012 Steelers and to look forward to the offseason.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — The Steelers will have LaMarr Woodley back when the visit Dallas this weekend, and not having a healthy secondary, according to the starting linebacker, is not a concern as they prepare for one of the top-ranked passing games in the NFL.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — A lengthy drive at the start of the second half set the tone for a woeful finish in Week 14. As he schemes against Tony Romo, Steelers defensive coordinator hopes Week 15 will be a different story, especially given the imminent return of starting linebacker LaMarr Woodley.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are near critical mass as eight players miss practice on Wednesday. While Coach Mike Tomlin and the rest of the organization and coaches prepare replacements to fill necessary positions, the Steelers are digging in to make the most of their situation with only three games left in the 2012 NFL regular season and a must-win game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Ike Taylor and LaMarr Woodley may be out for the Pittsburgh Steelers (7-5) when they host the San Diego Chargers (4-8) at Heinz Field Sunday, but the return of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to the field and players returning from injury lists puts the Steelers in great position to win the game. Everyone is feeling that the timing is just right.
Wednesday’s practice for the Pittsburgh Steelers was a testing ground for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. While head coach Mike Tomlin hasn’t said that Roethlisberger will make the start against the San Diego Chargers, the team is preparing with the understanding that it doesn’t matter who the quarterback is and they must improve. Read the full practice report and find out who will be stepping into rolls left vacant by injured Steelers.
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin says Ben Roethlisberger will have the opportunity to prove he’s healthy enough to return to action this week.
Despite news that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was able to participate in a limited capacity in practice this week, Pittsburgh Steelers fans will have to wait at least one more week to see him on the football field in action. News that wide receiver Antonio Brown and safety Troy Polamalu will return on Sunday has lifted the hopes of the Steelers faithful.
News of moves and player statuses showed on Wednesday that the Pittsburgh Steelers (6-5) are not focusing on the past in their preparation and practice sessions for their second meeting in three weeks with the Baltimore Ravens (9-2).
First grader Seth Pesanski had reason to cheer Tuesday, he brought Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley to Hartwood Elementary School, with the support of twin sister Sage.
The Pittsburgh Steelers were unable to convert their quick start against the Baltimore Ravens in their Sunday Night Football matchup by losing, 10-13. The Ravens go two games ahead in the AFC North. Grading your favorite team is never easy, but in a disappointing and close loss, it’s even harder.
In their Monday Night Football matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs, the Pittsburgh Steelers looked distracted and unfocused. Saving the game was Lawrence Timmons as he grabbed a Matt Cassel toss during the overtime period to set up the game winning field goal. Leaving the field of play 16-13 counts as a win, but if quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is seriously injured, the Steelers may be on the road to further misery.
The Pittsburgh Steelers (5-3) will host the flailing Kansas City Chiefs (1-7) in a game that the Steelers insist isn’t a ‘trap game’. See how the Steelers can effectively shut down KC and continue their winning ways.
The Pittsburgh Steelers move to 5-3 on the season, breaking a four game winning streak by the NFC East-leading New York Giants in a game that gave tribute to storm survivors, first responders and the military.
The Pittsburgh Steelers (4-3) will be without three key players when they face the New York Giants (6-2) on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. Read more for the fantasy outlook and who should sit and start this weekend.
