In the first game of his career, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Dri Archer logged a total of 15 snaps on opening day during the 2014 season. In the Steelers’ last game of that season, he logged a career-high 31 snaps in the team’s postseason loss. He logged just three snaps…

David DeCastro 1

Steelers Film Room: David DeCastro Week 1

Steelers Communication Woes Unlikely To Repeat In Week 2

It doesn’t take me to tell you communication was one of the biggest issues that loomed over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Thursday night’s loss. The Australians over on The Guardian live blog could have told you something was amiss. Things will get better. And it isn’t just me looking through a…

Cortez Allen 2

Steelers Film Room: Cortez Allen vs. Patriots

For the last two seasons, the Pittsburgh Steelers have trotted out Cortez Allen with the starting lineup on opening day, only to demote him, and then bench him, as in the case of last season, as he struggled. Instead of waiting, the coaching staff evidently demoted him to the nickel…


Lack Of Line Depth Could Be Addressed With Steve McLendon

As should have been anticipated, Cam Thomas was the first defensive end off the bench for the Pittsburgh Steelers on opening night, stepping in early in the second quarter to give Cameron Heyward a breather on a long drive. Also filling in for nose tackle Steve McLendon was Daniel McCullers,…

Steelers Film Room: Kelvin Beachum
