The Steelers are enjoying themselves early against Minnesota, jumping out to an initial 14-0 lead against the Sam Bradford-less Vikings. They’re having so much fun, in fact, that they added another game to the mix after their touchdowns.
J.J. Watt has gotten a lot of well-deserved attention for both his on-and off-field actions over his career, but today, once the games began, it was one of his brothers who took over the spotlight.
Some people are fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers. But many, many more people are NOT fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers. This 2017 Deadspin NFL team preview is for those in the latter group. Read all the previews so far here.
Cleveland’s police union will refuse to participate in the raising of the flag during the national anthem ceremony at the Browns home opener, to protest Browns players kneeling during the national anthem.
The Steelers have been busy keeping their own and adding to their roster this offseason. Don’t think running back Le’Veon Bell hasn’t noticed.
A Pennsylvania woman was allegedly beaten up and shaved by her daughter and granddaughter Sunday because she reportedly turned up the radio for the preseason Steelers game too loudly.
Former NHL player Jeremy Roenick showed his ass by tweeting this on Monday:
Le’Veon Bell is making a big bet on himself. That kind of thing isn’t all that uncommon in the NFL, where contracts are not guaranteed, but Bell’s gamble is an attempt to transcend his position from a financial standpoint. The odds that he’ll succeed appear to be stacked against him.
The NFL’s franchise tag deadline came and went at 4 p.m. ET with no new contracts for Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins, Pittsburgh running back Le’Veon Bell, and Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson. If you’re wondering what that means for them and their teams, I can explain.
We’ve got a fresh batch of videos featuring James Harrison doing wild shit in order to stay beefy, and these clips feature him hurling a medicine ball over a volleyball net with his pals.

Steelers kicker Chris Boswell says he was ejected from last night’s Penguins 6-0 Game 6 win in Pittsburgh for getting overly excited during a rare SCF line brawl.
The great Sean Gentille of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has alerted us to the existence of a highly enjoyable video that can be found on the Twitter feed of former Steelers and Cardinals running back Rashard Mendenhall.
Steelers linebacker James Harrison loves to work out and share videos of his workouts. Sometimes he’ll boast about his feats, but other times, the clips are presented without commentary or platitudes. They reinforce a blunt fact: James Harrison can attempt this, and you (almost certainly) cannot.
Wideout Martavis Bryant has been “conditionally” reinstated by the NFL after serving a 13-month suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy, the Steelers announced.
Dan Rooney, the chairman and patriarch of the Pittsburgh Steelers and a giant in NFL decision-making circles for decades, died on Thursday, the team announced. He was 84.
So much for whatever concerns the Steelers might have had about Antonio Brown and his alleged selfishness. With a little more than a week to go until the start of free agency, Pittsburgh inked its star receiver to a contract extension that reportedly makes him the highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL.
A few weeks ago, former Steeler linebacker and current assistant coach Joey Porter was arrested outside of a Pittsburgh bar following an argument between Porter, a doorman, and a police officer. Today, Pittsburgh police have released video of the incident:
Every sports league has obnoxious parents that holler at referees, coaches and players; rarely are those parents coaches of the nearby professional football team.
