Steelers DE Caushaud Lyons Scouting Report

One of the two new additions to the Pittsburgh Steelers roster is defensive end Caushaud Lyons. I must admit I knew little about the rookie UDFA initially. So we’ll treat him like a scouting report. There’s less tape to go off of, I watched all of his preseasons snaps but…


My Thoughts On The Steelers Busy Sunday

Sunday was a very eventful day for the Pittsburgh Steelers as it included the team waiving two additional draft picks in cornerback Doran Grant and linebacker Anthony Chickillo and both will now be exposed to the wire. I have now fully digested all of Sunday’s primary roster moves and read…


Tomlin, Colbert Focusing On Winning In 2015 Above All Else

As of Saturday, six of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ eight-man draft class successfully landed on the 53-man roster, heralding the praise of a draft well done. The only player fully out of the organization was a seventh-round selection, with the eighth player landing on injured reserve, and thus still a part…


Caushaud Lyons Fits Profile Of John Mitchell Pick On Paper

The Pittsburgh Steelers made several roster moves yesterday to tweak their 53-man roster and establish their initial 10-man practice squad, and many of those moves have certainly drawn a hefty amount of conversation—much of it angry. But unquestionably the least discussed move in that group was the acquisition via the…

2016 Picture At Cornerback Grows More Uncertain With Two Under Contract

With the Pittsburgh Steelers’ decision to waive rookie cornerback Doran Grant yesterday, it would be a service to take a look at where the position stands now—or rather, where it will stand heading into the 2016 season.

New Acquisition RB Jordan Todman Not Necessarily In Temporary Position

If the Pittsburgh Steelers roster had one single glaring omission from it, positionally, following Saturday’s initial 53-man roster assembly, it would obviously have been the stark lack of a second true running back on the roster, which is why Mike Tomlin fielded questions directly about this position afterwards. Tomlin acknowledged…


Making Sense Of The Steelers’ Post-Cutdown Roster Moves

As has been the case for most seasons in recent memory, the Pittsburgh Steelers immediately began tweaking their initial 53-man roster the day after it was first assembled. Yesterday, they added two players off the waiver wire, in addition to releasing two players to accommodate them. Somewhat unusually, neither of…


Steelers Release of Doran Grant Has Troubling Layers

When the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Doran Grant in the fourth round just 129 days ago, you would think that the team had a compelling reason to believe that the Ohio State stud could become at least a top four corner in Pittsburgh in a few years. You would think that…


Steelers Initial 53 Man Roster

With a flurry of roster moves, it can be difficult to keep up with the Pittsburgh Steelers roster. We’ll present it, without commentary, below. Just a reminder Maurkice Pouncey still has to be moved to the injured reserve/designated to return list, opening up a roster spot for another offensive lineman…

Steelers Woes Of Evaluating Secondary Continues

The Pittsburgh Steelers have released a rookie defensive back. Stop me if you’ve heard that one before. In an all too familiar pattern, rookie cornerback Doran Grant and safety Gerod Holliman join a long list of recent defensive backs drafted only to fail to make the initial Week One roster….

Preseason Charting Notes: Offense

On the heels of the Pittsburgh Steelers releasing much of their 75-man roster to attempt to reach the league mandated mark of 53 players, I decided to look back at the Steelers preseason offense from an analytical and personnel usage perspective. I’ll explain everything as clearly as I can while…

Game notes from the preseason finale between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Carolina Panthers. This will be an abridged version since some of these players aren’t even in Pittsburgh anymore. An eye towards the players here and the New England Patriots in Week One is more important. First Half – Kick…
