Wallace is gone, but the philosophy stays the same and rookie Markus Wheaton is quickly showing he cou...

Possible return date for Roethlisberger, week 16 vs Bengals

The full lowdown on Ben Roethlisberger’s shoulder and rib injury came into focus today as he spoke to the media about his status. While it may not be as bad as we thought with his shoulder, the dislocated rib is another story, and obviously a great concern as it could be life threatening. The following was reported today via Twitter by Adam Schef...

2012 NFL draft: Possible selections for the Pittsburgh Steelers

Fresh off their second AFC Championship in three years the Pittsburgh Steelers were a strong favorite to repeat once again, but no one expected a first round loss. Expectations for Ben Roethlisberger and company were much higher than getting knocked out of the playoffs by a miraculous touchdown pass by Tim Tebow. The Steelers continuously have one of the leagues best defenses and in a league that has suddenly gone offensive will the Steelers get the itch in the 2012 NFL draft to possible find some offensive difference makers? Or will the Steelers do what they do best…defense. The Penalty Flag’s Mike Presley has Dontari Poe going to the Steelers to reignite the defense; Round 1, Pick 24: Dontari Poe NT Memphis: Father time seems to have caught up to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Casey Hampton will be 35 a week before Week 1 of the 2012 season and will be coming off ACL surgery. Poe’s size at 6’5 makes him a massive lineman that will make it hard for any center to block. He totaled 33 tack...

Contingency Plan For Possible Postponement Would Include Playing In Oakland

Mike Tirico on ESPN got word from the NFL, and stated the contingency plan for any further delays that would potentially cause a public hazard would result in postponement of the Steelers Week 15 game at San Francisco to Tuesday during the day.

The power at Candlestick Park has gone out twice tonight, once right before kickoff and once during the second quarter.

What would that do to the Steelers, who have a Saturday game against St. Louis on Saturday?

The least amount of time teams have between games is four days - Sunday to Thursday. A three-game respite between games is unprecedented since the league adopted Thursday night games.

San Francisco would obviously have the same liability, but the 49ers don't need to get on a plane back to the Eastern Time Zone after the game ends.

Whenever that is.

It's midway through the third quarter, and there doesn't seem to be any power issues. The first two came without warning, though, and another stoppage could lead to a postponement.

If Candlestick Park is unable to host the remainder of the game, it would shift across the bay to Oakland Coliseum.

The 49ers have the ball in Steelers territory with 10:21 left in the third quarter, leading 6-0.

In a game where Pittsburgh's defense appears to be performing at a high level, their offense could use a night off. While their overall yards (202) aren't terrible, they aren't coming in bunches on the same drive. They've threatened in the red zone, but Roethlisberger interceptions have held them back.
