Good Tuesday to you Steelers’ Fans!
In case you forgot, the Steelers will wear their throwback uniforms this Sunday against the Browns. Because I’m old and love tradition, I have felt since the first day they introduced the team’s current uniform that the throwback you’ll see should still be the main uniform. That said, things change and it will be good to see those traditional looking jerseys once again on display at Three Rivers Stadium, errrrrr, Heinz Field. I am hopeful that these throwbacks come back as our permanent jersey.
I tweeted this last night and I feel the same way today.
RE: Peterson. I don’t believe it happens. But here’s the question. Do the #Steelers give up a first for a guy they KNOW can play rather than risk another poor CB selection in the Draft? This is why many want it to happen and I get that.

What’s interesting about the Steelers and whether or not they make deals like this always comes back to “it’s not how the Steelers do things.” While I agree their formula has garnered some great results over the last forty years, shouldn’t an organization also evolve too? If the Ravens or Patriots bring Peterson in for a first round pick or less there will be hell to pay from Steeler Nation.
Tweet of the Day… So simple, so beautiful, so Pittsburgh!
It's a jersey that represents the rich history and legacy of the Steelers, and today's players are excited to wear it this Sunday against the Browns at Heinz Field.

Here’s the latest WPIAL insights(Week 9 Playoff scenarios) from Ian who continues to provide the best coverage in town!!
Here’s my piece on what we can expect from the fans and the team when Le’Veon Bell finally returns. I’m thinking he reports on Halloween. Just a hunch but it would make perfect sense because this entire thing has been a nightmare.
If you think Antonio Brown or Odell Beckham, Jr are the only diva wide receivers in the NFL then you aren’t paying attention. In San Diego’s win over Tennessee, Keenan Allen threw a temper tantrum after not getting targeted in the end zone. On the same play won of his fellow receivers was laid out and needed medical attention. Allen pouted his way to the sideline without stopping to even check on his teammate. That’s the NFL today folks.
There will be lots of discussion over NYG Head Coach Pat Shurmur’s decision to go for two down 20-12 with under five minutes to play last night. I mention this because Shurmur has made some questionable decisions that remind me a lot of Mike Tomlin and his management of the game. Shurmur, according to the analytics folks, was correct in going for two citing that making it once has a greater possibility than missing the conversion twice. I’m not a big fan of analytics because they don’t often take into account the human condition. In this case, the Giants’ defense hung around long enough to give the offense a chance only to see themselves take the field following a crush failure on the conversion. Psychology matters people.
Have a great day Steeler Nation!
