    Unfortunately in the media, having actual experience in the field you're reporting on is not a prerequisite. Former NFL running back DeAngelo Williams clearly struck a nerve during a segment on NFL Network's "Good Morning Football" where he questioned the knowledge of those making predictions of Sunday's marquee match-up between the New England Patriots at the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    A scary scene unfolded at Paul Brown Stadium Monday night. Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier had to be carted off the field after he led with his helmet on a tackle attempt early in the first quarter of the Steelers’ game against the Bengals. Shazier drilled his helmet into the side of Bengals receiver Josh Malone, causing his neck to buckle and his legs to go limp. Shazier immediately grabbed his lower back and remained motionless on the ground for several moments before being taken off the field on a stretcher. He did not have feeling in his lower body, according...

    Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin indicated Sunday night that he did not want offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva to stand for the national anthem, instead of sitting it out with the rest of his teammates. Villanueva, a former Army Ranger who served three tours in Afghanistan, was the only Steelers player to stand for the anthem. While Villanueva stood in the tunnel, hand over his heart, the rest of the team remained in the locker room in protest of President Trump’s comments that players who kneel during the national anthem should be fired.

    You can say a lot about President Trump (for instance: that he would be wise to focus all his energy on passing TrumpCare rather than on having a Twitter war with the president of the NFL), but man, does he know how to get the Crazy Left to show their real faces or what? "Expectations were that Trump's remarks were going to lead many more players to protest Sunday. Jamie Erdahl reported that Mike Tomlin, coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers, told him that the entire team would stay in the locker room before its game against the Chicago Bears." Let...
  • Pittsburgh family has had a clock stuck in their wall for 13 years, and it rings every day

    Jerry Lynn, the homeowner, told a local news station that the clock’s presence in the wall is his fault, but that he never dreamed he would still be dealing with the issue well over a decade later. Lynn says he was using the clock, tied to a string and dangling inside the wall, to help him locate a spot in the wall where he needed to drill to run some wire. He set the alarm for ten minutes, then sent the clock down into the gap between the walls, hoping that listening for the chime would allow him to pinpoint...

    The Indianapolis Colts, already reeling with injury and performing below expectations, received even more terrible injury news on Tuesday: quarterback Andrew Luck suffered abdominal injury in the team's victory over Denver. Luck is expected to miss two to six weeks. Colts head coach Chuck Pagano announced the injury on Tuesday afternoon, saying Luck suffered a lacerated kidney and a partially torn abdominal muscle on a fourth-quarter scramble. This is in addition to the report from earlier this season that Luck had been playing with multiple fractured ribs. The Colts are in a bye week this week, then face the Falcons,...

  • Report: Patriots' broadcast bleeds into Steelers' coaching headsets during opener

    09/10/2015 7:04:27 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 74 replies
    ...Pittsburgh Steelers coaches were getting the Patriots' broadcast over their headsets during Thursday night's game. The Patriots' coach-to-coach headsets were shut off intermittently, the NFL told Tafoya. NFL head of security Jeff Miller was shown on camera while Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth were discussing the mishap. Blake Jones, NFL director of football operations, went down to the field to help out with the headsets. The league described the reception problem as "intermittent" and it was believed to be resolved early in the second quarter. Because it was not a complete system failure, New England's coaches were not required to...

    The Steelers continue to face backlash over the team's decision to sign Michael Vick. The Animal Rescue League has decided to move one of its biggest events away from Heinz Field because Vick's now on the roster. The ARL was going to hold its 16th annual Paws Prints Gala at Heinz, but the group decided to move the Oct. 31 event to Pittsburgh's CONSOL Energy Center instead because of the Vick signing. "While we understand that Mr. Vick has made an effort to atone for his past mistakes and has worked to help strengthen animal abuse laws, we do not...

    April 10, 2015 Polamalu retires from football Jim Wexall Troy Polamalu called Dan Rooney last night to inform him he was retiring from football. The Steelers had asked Polamalu to retire in February, but he resisted until the realization came upon him in church this week, the Holy Week of the Greek Orthodox Church. “It’s all about family,” said Polamalu in a phone interview. “I live here in Pittsburgh now, and since the end of the season I’ve had a chance to enjoy my family on a level I never had before. It was awesome.” Polamalu retires after 12 seasons,...

    January 19, 2014, 10:10 am Obama: Danger of concussions in NFL ‘no longer a secret’ By Justin Sink President Obama said that he believed NFL players “know what they’re doing” and understood the impact that concussions could have on their long-term health in an interview with The New Yorker published on Sunday, adding that he would not let his son play pro football. “At this point, there’s a little bit of caveat emptor,” Obama said. “These guys, they know what they’re doing. They know what they’re buying into. It is no longer a secret. It’s sort of the feeling I...

    A football career would be out of bounds for any son of President Obama, who compared the game to smoking in an interview with The New Yorker. “I would not let my son play pro football,” the First Fan said in a POTUS profile for the magazine’s Jan. 27 issue. The president’s love of sports is well documented, and his favorite NFL team is the Pittsburgh Steelers. And while football’s escalating head-injury crisis is reason enough to keep a kid he doesn’t have off the field, it’s no reason to stop watching, he told Remnick.

    the NFL has performed 'an aggressive review' of the play in question, where Tomiln appeared to intentionally get in the path of Baltimore kick returner Jacoby Jones on a could-be touchdown, forcing Jones to alter his route and run towards a Pittsburgh defender. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was caught by television cameras Thursday night with a big smile on his face after his positioning on a third-quarter kick return from Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones — in which Tomlin had part of his right foot on the field as he watched the return on the video board with his back to...

    I’ve known Rick Santorum for 22 years, having first met him in 1990 before he’d won his first campaign for Congress. I interviewed him on WORD-FM, an evangelical Christian radio station where I was a frequent guest host (and eventually a full-time host) early in his campaign. If I was not the first media personality to interview Rick, I was one of the first. I had Rick as a guest at the request of my friend, Mark Rogers, who was running Rick’s campaign. Over the years I interviewed Rick at least a dozen times and debated him several times as...

According to Deadspin, during the party the Pouncey twins were photographed wearing ‘Free Hernandez’ baseball hats as they are obviously showing support for Aaron Hernandez, their former Florida teammate and former tight end for the New England Patriots. The Pouncey’s recently had their names surface in an article about a 2007...

Additionally, “Tampon was used in the engine compartment where the oil fill cap is located.” Since “ashes were at the gas cap area and...

    The National Football League’s political action committee—Gridiron PAC—has weighed in on the hotly contested U.S. Senate election in Nevada that pits conservative Republican challenger Sharron Angle against Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid. The PAC has given $10,000 to Reid—the maximum it can give in a single election cycle—and no money to Angle, according to Federal Election Commission data compiled by The NFL’s PAC also contributed to other incumbent Democratic senators facing viable challengers this year, giving $5,000 to Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas; $5,000 to Russ Feingold of Wisconsin; $5,000 to Barbara Boxer of California; $5,000 to Michael Bennet of...
