Elway links Harrison’s fines to Decker’s MCL sprain

After racking up fines and a suspension for repeated hits to opponents’ heads, Steelers linebacker James Harrison did exactly what the league office has been urging him to do on Sunday: He lowered his target when making a hit. The result was a hard shot to Broncos receiver Eric Decker’s knee, resulting in an MCL…

Deshea Townsend Describes What It’s Like For Aging Veterans As Career Winds Down

*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***

PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Former Steelers Cornerback and current Arizona Cardinals Secondary Coach Deshea Townsend joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller on Sportsradio 93-7 The FAN to discuss what his good friend, Hines Ward, and several of the other Steelers veterans are going through as their futures with the Steelers are in doubt.

Deshea played with a lot of the current Steelers who are getting up there in age and have to make some tough decisions, and told us what it was like when your career is winding down and you realize that your playing days are over. 

When it came to discussing the future of Hines, Deshea said if the Steelers want him back, there is no doubt he’ll be back to play again. 

We wrapped things up with Deshea getting his thoughts on what it was like coaching against Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown, and what his reaction was when Wallace beat them deep this year for a 95 yard touchdown.

Steelers heading into uncertain offseason

*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin acknowledges that change is inevitable, even for one of the NFL's most stable franchises.

This offseason could be bumpier than most.

Pittsburgh's stunning 29-23 playoff loss to Denver last Sunday put an end to a 12-5 season that felt underwhelming by the team's lofty standards.

The AFC champions played from behind all year, getting drummed by rival Baltimore in the season opener and never quite catching up. Though the Steelers steadied themselves after a so-so September, they struggled to stay healthy.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and linebackers James Farrior and James Harrison were among the starters who dealt with significant injuries while defensive end Brett Keisel and nose tackle Casey Hampton could require offseason surgery.

The Steelers persevered, becoming one of three teams from the AFC North to advance to the postseason.

But it's over early this time around, and with seven defensive starters in their 30s, the Steelers could go through a significant transition before the 2012 season kicks off.

Bouchette: Ward Not Going to Retire

There’s a lot more about the Hines Ward retirement talk today, and Ed Bouchette of the Post-Gazette says flat out it won’t happen.

Many have said he no longer can play, that he’s not getting “separation” anymore. The Steelers coaches seem to think that too, which is why I believe those coaches do not want him back. But if they force him out, I believe there will be some teams who would welcome him to their roster — not as a No. 1 or maybe even a No. 2, but as a proven, veteran possession receiver who can impart his knowledge on some younger receivers. Arizona, for example, would be among them, especially with Ward’s old position coach and offensive coordinator, Ken Whisenhunt.

Bouchette says that Ward has a roster bonus due in March, meaning that a decision will be made by then.
