Good Wednesday to you Steelers’ Fans!
I’m in an upbeat mood today because I don’t have to talk about Le’Veon Bell anymore. I moved along quite some time ago and I suggest you do the same. Our team is what it is and I think Ramon Foster nailed the issue right on the head. See my ‘Tweet of the Day’ below. I had one final thing to say about Bell yesterday at 4:01pm ET and here’s the link to it. Reports this morning say that Ben Roethlisberger texted Bell shortly before the 4pm deadline yesterday. He did not receive a reply which is similar to what we’ve heard from other players and coaches.
Congratulations to Ben Roethlisberger for being named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his big performance against the Panthers. Well deserved!
Ben and I discussed Bell, the offensive line, the win over Carolina and much more on the Steel City Blitz Steelers Podcast 105 presented by 26shirts.com/Pittsburgh last night. Check it out and give us some feedback in the comments section or on iTunes!
Tweet of the Day… Really spot on here by Ramon.
Ramon Foster on Le'Veon Bell's no show: "The best thing about it is we don't have to cut somebody. Someone that's been a part of the journey. That's tragic. You don't want someone to lose their job for that."

Stephon Tuitt’s hyper-extended elbow worries me a bit. He didn’t play well when he was banged up last year and against Jacksonville, who will try to establish the run early, his presence is needed.
All arrows point to James Conner coming out of concussion protocol today or tomorrow at the latest. Ben made a good point last night on the podcast. “If he can attend the Pitt game as he did on Saturday with the noise and bright lights then his head should be fine.” I agree.
Coty Sensabaugh has never been a guy that really impressed me. That said, I cannot argue that the defense has been better since he’s been inserted ahead of Artie Burns. One of the biggest issues for this unit was communication and while those issues still exist at times they are far less than they were when Burns was playing. Credit to Sensabaugh for that and to Tom Bradley who has clearly started to make a difference as the secondary coach.
Huge thank you to everyone who listens to the podcast! Please continue to give us feedback on Facebook or Twitter or in the comments section of the article.
Have a great day Steeler Nation!
