Xavier Grimble’s Role, Roster Spot To Be Determined

I think the next few days could be rather interesting for Pittsburgh Steelers first-year tight end Xavier Grimble. He could be losing his roster spot as early as tomorrow. Or, come Sunday, he could see himself returning to the field as an offensive contributor after being absent for the past…


Film Room: Bills’ Defensive Scouting Report

This year, Matthew Sottile and I will break down the opposing team’s defense in our weekly scouting report. Like last year, I will be looking at the opposing team in a more broad, scheme-approach. Matthew will have a closer eye on the individual players. Today, the Buffalo Bills’ defense. Alex’s Scheme Report…

Steelers Week 13 Offensive Charting Notes

The Pittsburgh Steelers won their third consecutive game on Sunday, and they found some notable success on offense in doing so, including having the first 100-yard rusher against the Giants’ defense this season. While they did not take full advantage of all of their opportunities—and the defense played its part—the…


Hargrave’s Status Leaves Another Roster Spot Up In Air

The Pittsburgh Steelers are in a bit of a troubling position, and one they would prefer not to be in, when it comes to the defensive line right now. The team elected not to replace defensive end Cameron Heyward’s roster spot with another defensive lineman, so they have been operating…




Ramon Foster Fined For Defending Le’Veon Bell

It’s a fine that is well worth, I’m sure, in Ramon Foster’s mind. Foster was slapped with a $9,115 fine for throwing New York Giants’ linebacker Kelvin Sheppard off the pile late in Sunday’s 24-14 win. Foster was defending Le’Veon Bell, who was getting grabbed and twisted under the facemask…


Ask Alex: Steelers’ Mailbag

I have found the perfect security system, hardly any cost required. Christmas lights. Because apparently if you turn them on full blast, they will blind any intruder. I walked up to my front porch last weekend trying to bring the groceries (read: Bagel Bites) inside and the lights were on…


Steelers Need To Find Their ‘Ronald’ To Antonio Brown

Wouldn’t it be great if the Pittsburgh Steelers could get both Ronald and Antonio Brown on the field together? After all, they are kind of looking for a number two receiver right about now anyway, aren’t they? Can somebody please get in touch with Antonio about getting Ronald on the…

Steelers Defense Stabilizing With Shift Away From Rotations

From outward appearances, as the season progresses, it looks as though the Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coaching staff is becoming more and more comfortable with their unit, and, as a result, it seems that they are shifting more and more away from the idea of rotating defenders at various positions as…


Harbaugh, Ravens Riding High Into Home Stretch

The Baltimore Ravens are entering the final quarter of the 2016 season with a very tenuous grasp on the lead for the AFC North division title. While they share a 7-5 record with the Pittsburgh Steelers as the best record in the division, they are currently seeded higher than their…
