Steelers’ Legend Rocky Bleier Rips Blitzburgh

By Brandon Wallace

When Steeler legends of old begin to air their grievances, you know it’s getting bad in Pittsburgh. Monday, Pittsburgh Steelers‘ great, Rocky Bleier took to Facebook to address the current state of the team. Bleier, who played in 1968, and then again from 1979-1980 (all with Pittsburgh) was a 4x Super Bowl Champion and knows a thing or two about winning.

Bleier’s comments couldn’t have been narrated any better, and if you ask most, he’s pretty spot on. But lately, I’m starting to feel like I’m the only one who thinks the Steelers are just in a rare slump and will soon prevail. The missed FG’s and PAT’s this season, being down to your 3rd and 4th string running backs, the turnovers in the red zone, the list goes on; things we’re not used to seeing from the Steelers. With all of that said however, I wouldn’t be surprised if the team overcomes the odds and wins out. In the Mike Tomlin era, the Steelers tend to lose to teams they have no business losing to, and beat teams they have no business beating during the regular season. There is still a chance to finish 10-5-1 which is right around Tomlin’s seasonal winning average, and I think they’ll reach it. Nonetheless, have a listen straight from Rocky and judge for yourself:


Entering 2018, the Steelers are 74-28 under Mike Tomlin against teams who finished the season at .500 or below. Their home record is 39-8 while only managing a record of 35–20 on the road. This season, the Steelers are currently 6–1–1 against teams who do not have a winning record as of week 13. The one loss may very well disappear soon as Denver is likely to eclipse the .500 mark. – Dave Schofield, SB Nation – Behind the Steel Curtain
