Steelers Film Room: Le’Veon Bell Vs Chiefs

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell gets talked a lot around here, and rightfully so. He accounts for more of the team’s offense than anybody else, setting a new franchise mark for yards from scrimmage just last year. This year, he is already averaging over 100 yards on the ground…


Tyler Murphy Offers More Value Should Mike Vick Lose Backup QB Spot

With Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger at long last getting the long-awaited ‘probable’ designation for the team’s upcoming game, it would seem that the likelihood of Landry Jones or Mike Vick throwing another meaningful pass this season is becoming less and less. But what if Vick’s day in a uniform…


Steelers Film Room: Marcus Gilbert Vs Chiefs

For one reason or another, not a lot of attention has been paid to Pittsburgh Steelers right tackle Marcus Gilbert this season. Ordinarily, it’s a good sign for an offensive lineman when he goes unnoticed, but we are not the sort to overlook quality offensive line play. And that is…


Steelers Film Room: Ryan Shazier Vs Chiefs

The Pittsburgh Steelers defense really could have used Ryan Shazier back after missing four games with what seemed to be a minor shoulder injury, but on Sunday, he was only back, really, by name, as he did not have the sort of impact that you would expect him to have….

Video: Steelers Killer B’s In New Nike “Snow Day” Commercial

Did you catch the new Nike commercial Thursday night during the game between the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots? It’s definitely worth watching if you missed it. In a commercial entitled “Snow Day,” Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, wide receiver Antonio Brown and running back Le’Veon Bell are…


Revisiting The Idea For The Steelers To Trade For DL Depth

I hate to be “that guy.” No one likes the person who “told you so,” and it’s more self-serving than anything else. But a couple weeks ago, we wrote about the need for the Pittsburgh Steelers to add depth along the defensive line. This was before Stephon Tuitt went down…


Steelers Should Have Georgia On Their Minds Sunday Against Bengals

If the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to beat the undefeated Cincinnati Bengals Sunday at Heinz Field, one would think that they must be able to run the football successfully in the game in order to keep quarterback Andy Dalton off the field as much as possible. By the looks of…


Steelers Film Room: Cincinnati Bengals Defensive Scouting Report

This year, Jon Ledyard and I will be collaborating our scouting reports. We’ll play to our strengths – he’ll be focusing on the individuals while I’ll be looking at overall scheme. These reports will be broken down into two articles, one for offense and one for defense. Our reports for…


Steelers WR Markus Wheaton Struggling To Get Targets In Third Season

After catching 53 passes for 644 yards and two touchdowns last season, the arrow appeared to be pointing up for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Markus Wheaton and especially since he was able to stay healthy and dress in all 16 games. That arrow, however, now appears to be pointing back…

This year, Jon Ledyard and I will be collaborating our scouting reports. We’ll play to our strengths – he’ll be focusing on the individuals while I’ll be looking at overall scheme. These reports will be broken down into two articles, one for offense and one for defense. Our reports for…


Carnell Lake Not Behind Talent Deficiency In The Secondary

Much has been made of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ secondary recently, a statement that could accurately have been made at virtually any point over the past few years. Recently, however, there seems to have been an increase in the finger pointing over whatever issues might be ailing the unit, with many…


Steelers Film Room: Robert Golden Vs Chiefs

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had fourth-year safety Robert Golden in the lineup for all but eight snaps over the course of the past three weeks, and with Will Allen downgraded yesterday to not participating in practice, there exists the strong possibility that he gets his third straight start. By and…


Steelers Film Room: Alejandro Villanueva Vs Chiefs

While anticipating Alejandro Villanueva’s first start for the Pittsburgh Steelers, it was not the end result that I was most interested in. It was obvious, given his limited experience, that mistakes would be made. What I was most interested in seeing was whether or not he would be able to…


Steelers Film Room: Cam Thomas Vs Chiefs

The Pittsburgh Steelers have placed a heavy burden on starting defensive end Stephon Tuitt entering his second year, a burden borne by necessity more than anything else. The young 22-year-old has been consistently logging north of 80 percent of the Steelers’ snaps every game up to his injury, sometimes over…
