It's been a busy off-season for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Two weeks ago, the NFL announced that it had signed some pretty heavy hitters <a href="http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000039776/article/serena-williams-condoleezza-rice-appear-in-nfl-ads">to endorse a new line of fan gear for women</a>, and while it’s not as awesome as <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Marisa-Miller.jpg">when the league did this</a>, it’s still a hell of a statement.
The marketing gurus at Pepsi have <a href="http://www.pepsianthems.com/#">teamed up with the NFL to create 5 new NFL team anthems</a> by pairing franchises with their biggest pop star fans, and Dallas Cowboys fans are first up with Kelly Clarkson’s new single, “Get Up”.
I didn't think Next Media Animation could top <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2011/10/tim-tebow-angel-dolphin-murderer">Tim Tebow as an angel stabbing a dolphin to death with a spear</a>, but their latest episode features Tebow literally being crucified, crown of thorns and everything, and Jesus Christ himself, the son of an X-Box-purchasing God, Tebowing after defeating Satan with the Broncos in a game of heavenly Madden.
By all accounts, the Denver Broncos’ victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers yesterday was a lot of things for NFL fans – entertaining, agonizing, frustrating and exciting to name a few – but for sports writers across the country, it was a second Christmas.
Try not to get too depressed ladies and gents.
Pro sports' best citizen and <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2011/12/tim-tebow-americas-neighbor">America's most desirable neighbor</a> Tim Tebow has it rough; he provides no reasonable middle ground, and the only two ways to take him are as God's Precious Little Comeback Angel or the least talented human being in modern history.
Candlestick Park went blackout dark twice during last night's Monday Night Football game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Pittsburgh Steelers, and depending on your level of inner demons your brain should go to one of two jokes: "pretty funny that a place called 'candlestick' would burn out like that" or "did anybody get shot.
We've already shared a gallery of <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2011/12/illustrated-futility-the-browns-try-to-win-a-game-on-thursday">depressing pictures from Thursday's Browns/Steelers game</a> and an <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2011/12/the-nfl-and-prilosec-think-well-listen-to-larry-the-cable-guy#page/1">even more depressing set about their fans</a>, so it's no surprise that game's head-to-softer-head collision that concussed Browns quarterback Colt McCoy would lead somewhere depressing, no matter what side you're on -- the league has decided to celebrate James Harrison’s fifth illegal hit against a quarterback in the past three seasons by <a href="http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d82503f17/article/steelers-lb-harrison-suspended-one-game-for-mccoy-hit?module=HP11_hot_topics">making him the first player suspended for helmet-to-helmet</a> since the rule's emphasis.
One of the NFL’s many official sponsors, Prilosec OTC has a new campaign called “A Better Way to Tailgate” to help fans avoid eating and drinking things that will give them heartburn, and that’s cool, because I suffer from heartburn a lot and I appreciate a billion dollar pharmaceutical company trying to knock the chili dog out of my fat mouth.
For all intents and purposes, Cleveland's 14-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers wasn't that big of a deal.
The 6-2 Baltimore Ravens have won both of their games against the Pittsburgh Steelers this season, making them the huge favorites to win the AFC North.

Check out what Troy Polamalu's up to this season: promoting Head And Shoulders by posing as a wax figure and coming to life Kim Cattrall style to scare people at Madame Tussaud's in Hollywood.
I’m man enough to admit when I’m wrong about something, so I had no problem making fun of myself yesterday while Ray Rice made me and the Pittsburgh Steelers look incredibly foolish.
Each week during the NFL season, I’ll be slinging my random, sometimes nonsensical thoughts about what’s going down.
As the occasionally creepy uncle at <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com">FilmDrunk</a>, I'm usually against posting spoiler images.
Now that the NFL is back in full swing, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison has, as expected, increased his PR efforts in regard to <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2011/07/james-harrisons-hole-gets-deeper">his recent interview with Men's Journal</a>, a magazine that I once had in my bathroom because I received four free issues.
Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison issued <a href="http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=244600065567940">a statement on Facebook</a> yesterday, looking to put out a few of the fires created by <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/07/james-harrison-speaks-on-roger-goodell-in-mens-journal-interview">his Men's Journal interview</a> which ripped his teammates, the league & specifically Commissioner Goodell.
