Kozora 53 Man Roster Prediction: Post First Game

We’ve finally rolled through 11 training camp practices (and one gymnasium jam session) and our first preseason game, giving more clarity to the makeup of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 53 man roster. Here’s my second edition of it and though there aren’t many changes, there are a couple in key areas….


Steelers’ Film Room: WR Cobi Hamilton Vs Lions

Friday’s preseason game against the Detroit Lions was pretty lackluster all around for the Pittsburgh Steelers, but fortunately for the black and gold, a few unexpected bright spots emerged throughout the game. Second-year wide receiver Cobi Hamilton, whom the Steelers just signed on August 5, really stood out in the…


Chickillo’s Preseason Gets Off To Quiet Start

Pittsburgh Steelers second-year outside linebacker Anthony Chickillo lined up for 27 snaps against the Lions in the team’s preseason opener last week, but unless you were paying attention and on the lookout for him—which I have no doubt that many were—you may have missed him. Chickillo may have been the…


Bengals DC Believes Geno Atkins Is Still Getting Better

Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins was once arguably the best interior lineman in the game—and then he was again last year, showing himself fully healed from a knee injury in 2013 that limited him immensely in the year that followed. He returned to his first-team All-Pro status in 2015….



Rookie Minicamps Proving Fruitful For Latest Roster Additions

Just an obvious side note here. No practice report today because of the washout. It poured and I mean, poured. As if every rain drop on earth collecting over St. Vincent College. So for the first time in forever, the practice was moved to the indoor gymnasium. That’s only for the…



Business Was Boomin’ For P Jordan Berry In Steelers Preseason Opener

While Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown didn’t play Friday night in the team’s preseason opener against the Detroit Lions, business was certainly boomin’ for another player wearing the black and gold in that game. Or in this particular case, punts were boomin’. Steelers punter Jordan Berry punted three times…


Steelers Film Room: Breakdown Of QB Landry Jones’ Accuracy Against Lions

The Pittsburgh Steelers dropped their preseason opener Friday night to the Detroit Lions at Heinz Field and while quarterback Landry Jones started the game and completed just 6 of 12 passes for 55 yards and a touchdown, the tape shows and good performance from an accuracy standpoint. Jones actually attempted…


Daniel McCullers Paints Familiar Picture In Extensive Snaps

The Pittsburgh Steelers knew that they had to address the nose tackle position after veteran Steve McLendon departed in free agency, and they did that with the drafting of Javon Hargrave in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, but they were also counting on seeing some development from…


Steelers Film Room: Demarcus Ayers Vs Lions

He didn’t get a lot of playing time, nor opportunities to demonstrate his potential, but what I did see from Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver Demarcus Ayers left me preliminarily encouraged. And that is saying something considering that he had only three touches in the game, one being a 14-yard…



James Harrison Still Impactful In 2016

Would it surprise you to read that, for the Pittsburgh Steelers, 38-year-old linebacker James Harrison was the best defender on the field on Friday night? It probably shouldn’t, given that that has for the most part been true at any age over the course of the past decade or so….


Ronnie Stanley Impresses In Ravens Debut

While there was some debate in the early hours of the 2016 NFL Draft whether or not offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley was actually the tackle that the Baltimore Ravens wanted to draft—and I’m sure you will recall why there was a debate after a certain video was posted to Twitter…


2016 Camp Questions: Third-Down Defense Cause For Concern?

Training camp is now upon us, in case you have failed to take notice. The Pittsburgh Steelers reported to Latrobe on July 28, and began practicing the following day in preparation for their first preseason game on August 12, and eventually, for the 2016 regular season in April. Every NFL…
