Steelers’ JuJu Smith-Schuster thinks he’s found his dream girl – but there’s a problem

Monday, June 18th, 2018

It has happened once or twice when we’ve seen athletes “shoot their shot,” as they say to someone they find attractive using their social media platforms. Pittsburgh Steelers second-year receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, who quickly became a darling last season for his spectacular catches, imaginative celebrations and fondness for his bike, is trying this method of matchmaking now too. Smith-Schuster’s dream girl is none other than Elastigirl, matriarch of the Incredibles family and star of “The Incredibles 2,” the sequel that was finally released this past weekend.

Sunday, June 17th, 2018

Joshua Dobbs is on the Steelers’ roster, but unless the team has an injury at quarterback, Dobbs likely won’t be come opening day. The Steelers have Landry Jones as the backup to Ben Roethlisberger, and they drafted Oklahoma State’s Mason Rudolph in the third round. “I just try to attack it the same every day, come ready to play,” Dobbs said, via Joe Rutter of the Tribune-Review.

Ben Roethlisberger not sweating contract, hopes other Steelers ‘get taken care of’

Sunday, June 17th, 2018

Two years from free agency in a robust quarterback market, Ben Roethlisberger isn't concerned with landing a record-breaking contract. "I care about record-breaking Super Bowl wins and things like that -- that's more important to me," the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback told ESPN from his football pro camp Sunday in Pittsburgh. Roethlisberger taught youth players teamwork for about four hours on Father's Day, and he didn't sway from that message when discussing his future.

Todd Haley: Browns may have best QB room I’ve worked with

Saturday, June 16th, 2018

During Todd Haley’s tenure as the offensive coordinator of the Steelers, there were reports that he didn’t see eye to eye with Ben Roethlisberger. Now Haley is offensive coordinator of the Browns, and his recent comments suggest that he’s happy to have different quarterbacks to work with. Haley said the quarterback room he’s working with now may be the best he’s worked with — even though he was working with a future Hall of Famer in Roethlisberger, and even though Tyrod Taylor, Baker Mayfield and Drew Stanton are not on Roethlisberger’s level.

Thursday, June 14th, 2018

The Steelers wrapped up minicamp on Thursday, but the team’s rookies will be sticking around for a little more work before breaking the middle of next week. “Mason’s been everything we’ve asked, for sure,” Fichtner said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. If Rudolph’s progress continues through camp, the Steelers may have a call to make about who will be the No. 2 quarterback come September.

Steelers LB Matakevich ready for starting shot

Thursday, June 14th, 2018

Tyler Matakevich's signature red beard is a jagged mess. The Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker knows it's time for a trim but he's a little particular about the way he wants it cut, so Matakevich decided to hold off until he could get back home to Connecticut, where a good friend has doubled as his barber for years. ''I sort of forgot that it's a little different when it's hot out,'' Matakevich said with a laugh.
