Ben Roethlisberger

Ben Roethlisberger

Last night’s win on Monday Night Football for the Pittsburgh Steelers came with a heavy price.  Big Ben is out with a separated shoulder and we don’t know how long.  The game itself was painful to watch at times, especially when the pitiful Kansas City Chiefs are pounding through our offensive line rendering the running game totally ineffective most of the time. It has been encouraging to me that Ben has stayed healthy through the whole … Read entire article »

Marino 27 Year Passing Mark About to be Destroyed

Records are made to be broken! Over time, most record performances will be overtaken. However, it is uncommon for a record that has been held for twenty-seven years to be eclipsed by multiple players in one season. That is the likely scenario for the 1984 single season passing record of 5,084 by Cradle Quarterback passing legend Dan Marino. At least … Read entire article »

Monday Evening Pittsburgh Quarterback

Monday Evening Pittsburgh Quarterback

It looks like Willie Colon is out for the season due to an injury that occurred with four minutes left in the blowout loss on Sunday. I was surprised to observe that all the starters were still playing late in the game. At the time I thought that was foolish, especially with all the cheap shot plays the teams were … Read entire article »

The Steelers are considered to have the deepest one through four depth in the NFL at quarterback once again this year.

“Recruiting Violations:” Now (Miami) and Then (Namath)

“Recruiting Violations:” Now (Miami) and Then (Namath)

It seems like the biggest story of the college football season is the high profile recruiting violations uncovered at Ohio State and Miami. Common sense dictates that if Yahoo or the NCAA wanted to find a significant recruiting violation at any BCS school, that they would be able to find something, even though the violations might not be quite to … Read entire article »

The Very Under Rated Marc Bulger Retires

The Very Under Rated Marc Bulger Retires

Marc Bulger retired this week. I believe he retires as the one of the most undervalued quarterback of all the passers that came from the region. Babe Parilli, a virtual unknown quarterback to most people, yet a College Football Hall of Fame member and AFL Hall of Fame resident probably is even more under appreciated. After the 2006 season, Bulger stood … Read entire article »
