The Team Meeting That Sparked Steelers Turnaround

  The Team Meeting That Sparked Steelers Turnaround The Pittsburgh Steelers laid it all on the table with everyone in the room. PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers spent some time during the bye week to hash everything out. They needed to take a deep breath, but they also needed to take accountability. And so far, it worked. We owe Najee Harris an apology. We also need to think about who was in this meeting and what was said to who. It feels like it's something the Steelers needed all season, but happening when it did was the perfect timing. Now, it's about keeping that mindset throughout the season.

George Pickens was part of a Georgia team last year that featured one of the best defenses in college football history, and the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver had an interesting way of expressing that this week.

Pickens told reporters on Thursday that he felt practices at Georgia were more intense than the ones he has experienced in his first NFL season. Why? Because the Bulldogs’ defense was so loaded with talent.

Bush calls Zelenskyy ‘tough dude,’ says Ukraine can win

  Bush calls Zelenskyy ‘tough dude,’ says Ukraine can win DALLAS (AP) — Former President George W. Bush called Ukraine's president a “tough dude” on Wednesday, saying he believes Volodymyr Zelenskyy can win the war against Russia — as long as they get the support they need. “Absolutely they can win, they're winning,” Bush said at a conference held at his Dallas institute. "But they won’t win if the United States and the free world says it’s not worth it anymore.” The conference, which touted itself as focusing on ways to advance freedom and democracy around the world, was set to feature a virtual conversation between Bush and Zelenskyy.

Pickens obviously did not mean that as a slight to Pittsburgh’s defense. He was simply trying to highlight how dominant Georgia’s defense was last season en route to a national title. Though, it is worth noting that the Steelers have allowed 24.4 points and 375.5 yards per game this season. They have one of the worst defenses in the NFL in terms of statistics.

The Steelers fell to 3-7 with their 37-30 loss to the division rival Cincinnati Bengals last week. Pickens was ejected late in that game for a cheap shot.

George Pickens Ejected From Bengals Game

  George Pickens Ejected From Bengals Game The Pittsburgh Steelers rookie was involved in a large altercation late in the game. PITTSBURGH -- As the Pittsburgh Steelers watched the clock wind down to zero on their seventh loss of the season, wide receiver George Pickens left early. The rookie wide receiver was disqualified after an altercation during an onside kick was a little over 40 seconds left in the ball game. After a frustrating second half, Pickens was involved in a scuffle that included most of both teams on the field, but the rookie was a little more flagrant than the rest of the crowd.

What Mike Tomlin Really Said About George Pickens .
There's a message within the message from Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin stood at the podium for his Week 14 press conference and was asked about the headlines circulating around George Pickens. The rookie receiver has shown frustration in recent weeks, highlighted by him screaming to throw him the football as he left the field in Week 13. Tomlin didn't have many nice things to say to those who have found a problem in Pickens's actions.
