Several different stories in Steelers deciding not to bring back Arians

This is the 5,900th article posted to the website

There are always two sides to a story. Sometimes, there can be several.

Take the case of former Pittsburgh offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, considered one of the best in the business.

According to news reports out of Pittsburgh, the Steelers told Arians that his contract would not be renewed.

The team released a statement a few days later saying that Arians had retired.

Then other reports stated that head coach Mike Tomlin wanted Arians back in 2012 and then Arians told several people that he had intended on returning.

Then reports started surfacing that team president Art Rooney II actually made the decision not to renew. But a Rooney was on a Pittsburgh radio station and said that the decision was Coach Tomlin’s.

Who will ever know the exact truth?

Bengals hang with Steelers, but come up short in 4th quarter


Andy Dalton on a rollout

CINCINNATI, OHIO — The first sellout crowd of the season at Paul Brown Stadium, 63,262, witnessed a classic AFC North Division game between Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. There was good defense, some scoring and several big plays.

The veteran Steelers beat the Bengals, 24-17.

Rashard Mendenhall scored two rushing touchdowns for the Steelers including the game winner of 9 yards late in the third quarter.

With the loss, the young Bengals 5-game winning streak comes to an end.

Cincinnati rookie quarterback Andy Dalton had a decent game of 15 for 30 for 170 yards, 2 TD’s and 2 interceptions. But he handled all of the Steelers schemes on defense better than expected.

With the two touchdowns on Sunday, Dalton now has 14 overall, the most of any NFL rookie quarterback in his first nine games since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Dalton did not suffer any sacks. The Steelers usually feast on rookie quarterbacks.

With the win, Pittsburgh is 7-3 and the Bengals fall to 6-3.

Top pass receivers in the game for Pittsburgh includes Antonio Brown 6 catches for 86 yards and Mike Wallace 6 catches for 54 yards. For Cincinnati, Andrew Hawkins 5 receptions for 56 yards and A.J. Green 2 for 36 yards and 1 touchdown.

On the ground, the Bengals Cedric Benson led all ball carriers with 57 yards on 15 carries.

Pittsburgh escapes hungry Bengals, 24-17


Ben Roethlisberger leads the Steelers

Bengals hung tough Sunday against the veteran Steelers

CINCINNATI, OHIO — Pittsburgh beat Cincinnati, 24-17 to take control of the AFC North on Sunday afternoon. But the defending AFC champions had to fight hard to earn the win.

All week leading up to the game between the Steelers and Bengals, the national media kept saying that rookie QB Andy Dalton would not be able to do much against Dick LeBeau’s blitzing defense.

The poised rookie from TCU had no problems at all. He handled everything thrown his way. He had no sacks, completed 15 of 30 passes with 2 touchdowns. He did suffer two fourth quarter interceptions during the Bengals comeback attempt, but they were rookie mistakes that he’ll learn from.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was asked his opinion of Dalton. “He’s a good player. He spins the ball really well, especially with the wind. He was spinning it really well. He seems very cerebral. He knows what’s going on out there. I think that he is playing the best of all the rookie quarterbacks. The other guys have numbers, but he makes some great throws. We were on the sideline, Byron Leftwich, Charlie Batch and I and we were saying ‘Oh, that’s a good throw.’ He makes good throws, he anticipates and I think he’s playing really well. I told him, ‘We’ll see you in a couple weeks, but you’re playing lights out.”

Roethlisberger was sacked five times by the Bengals defense, but completed 21 of 33 for 245 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception. The interception was not his fault. Tight end Heath Miller bobbled a potential first down ball that Bengals cornerback Leon Hall picked off.

Growing up in Pittsburgh, Cameron Heyward always dreamed of playing for the hometown team.

He doesn’t have to dream anymore.

The Steelers and their number-1 draft pick Heyward have agreed to a contract.

The former defensive tackle at Ohio State is the son of former Pittsburgh Panthers and NFL running back Craig “Ironhead” Heyward. The 6’5, 288-pound giant is a part of the Steelers youth movement on defense, especially the down-lineman.

The 22-year-old who was born in the Steel City, signed in time to join the rest of the team for practice on Friday.

The one thing about the Pittsburgh Steelers, they know how to get to the Super Bowl.

For the third time in six years, the Steelers are going to the NFL’s title game to play this time around, the Green Bay Packers.

The Steelers beat the New York Jets 24-19 to play in Super Bowl XLV on February 6, 2011.

Pittsburgh turned back the Jets by stopping them on a key goal line stand.

The 14-4 Steelers dominated the game in the first half going up 24-3 with Rashard Mendenhall rushing for 95 of his 121 yards in the first two quarters.

Pittsburgh is in its eighth Super Bowl and has won the most titles with 6.

The Jets trying to get the Super Bowl since the days of Broadway Joe Namath 42 years ago, got off on a bad start against a team who is hard to comeback against.

The New York Jets finished the season at 13-6 and failed for the fourth time in the AFC title game to advance to the Super Bowl.

The Steelers counted out by everybody when Ben Roethlisberger was suspended by the NFL for the first four games, did not wither and still won their division and the AFC Championship.
