Steelers Film Room: Outside Linebacker Anthony Chickillo

A lot of recent Pittsburgh Steelers roster talk has centered around how many linebackers the team will keep on the final 53, and if Anthony Chickillo’s name will be among those chosen. I’ve made the case that it should be, but the coaching staff has been very reluctant to give…

Steelers Film Room: Packers Two-Point Conversion

Admittedly, play breakdown during the regular season is difficult. It’s why the All-22 tape is a Godsend and I’d spend all the money I don’t have for it. Still, we’re able to break down a couple of plays. We’ll turn our attention to the Green Bay Packers first two-point conversion…

Steelers Vs Packers Film Room: Sean Spence

Fourth-year Pittsburgh Steelers inside linebacker Sean Spence is just three snaps shy of being one of only three defensive players for the team to log at least 100 snaps thus far this preseason. In other words, he has logged a lot of time on defense already. He has had a…



Josh Mauro

Film Room: Former Steelers DE Josh Mauro

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost three of their own players last season, either off the waiver wire or having been signed off the practice squad. The loss that seemed to most upset the fan base, however, was rookie undrafted free agent defensive end Josh Mauro, who prior to the draft drew…

Steelers Vs Packers Film Room: Chris Hubbard

Pittsburgh Steelers second-year offensive lineman Chris Hubbard has gotten the breakdown treatment in each of the first three games thus far this preseason, but that has been so for good reason.

Tomlin Stresses Need For “Fanatical” Conditioning

In true head coach fashion, Mike Tomlin was tight-lipped about his plans for Saturday’s game against the Buffalo Bills. He refused to rule any players out and didn’t give much of a timetable for how long he’d leave his starters in, only saying it’d be in similar fashion to last…

Dress Rehearsal Just Hoping To See Several Steelers Dress

Saturday’s game against the Buffalo Bills will be dominated by the Pittsburgh Steelers starters, playing at least a half, even spilling into the third quarter.

Steelers Now Have 12 Former First Round Draft Picks Under Contract

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed quarterback Michael Vick on Wednesday and being as he is a former first-round selection that means the team now has a total of 12 players who were originally drafted in the first round.

In only three preseason games, Keith Butler has put a distinctive stamp on this Pittsburgh Steelers defense. A much more noticeable degree than anyone, myself included, anticipated. Some of the concepts might seem new to Steelers’ fans, but they’re not new to the league. Nothing is anymore. They’re taught, borrowed, tweaked…
