Steelers Turned To Eli Rogers Often Late In Game, And He Responded

In the season opener, Eli Rogers—technically a second-year player, but in many ways essentially a rookie after spending his first season with the Pittsburgh Steelers on injured reserve before even participating in a preseason game—caught six passes for 59 yards and a touchdown. Over the course of the following two…


Film Room: Artie Burns Shows High IQ, Work Ethic On INT

Interceptions aren’t created on Sundays. Unless you’re playing Ryan Fitzpatrick, they’re earned through hours of tape study. And that’s how Artie Burns earned his first interception Sunday. Here’s what he told reporters after the game, via Steelers.com. “They ran a concept I’ve seen before on film. I just went in…


Xavier Grimble Logs More Time As Jesse James Plays Less Than Half Of Snaps

You may have noticed in yesterday’s snap counts that we posted that there was something interesting within the Pittsburgh Steelers’ snap distribution at the tight end position—specifically, first-year tight end Xavier Grimble logged more time on the field than starter Jesse James, which is the first time that that happened…


Steven Johnson Appears To Have Passed L.J. Fort On Depth Chart

Over the course of the last several games, an interesting and potentially underrated development has happened at the inside linebacker position, and it’s not the one that I wrote about earlier today in the starting lineup. In fact, it’s at the bottom of the roster, and that could have some…


Bengals Bring Back Steelers Antagonist Wallace Gilberry

While the Cincinnati Bengals may be on their bye week, during which they saw their two chief division rivals create a two-way tie for the division lead, just a half-game ahead of themselves after they managed to draw in their final game of the first half of the season, the…


2016 South Side Questions: Was Roosevelt Nix A Healthy Scratch?

The regular season is here, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are taking their practices at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex, formerly known and still referred to as the ‘South Side’ facility of Heinz Field. While the real work is now upon us, there is plenty left to be done. And there…


Harrison Looks To Break Steelers’ Sack Record Sunday Against Cowboys

In Sunday’s home game against the Dallas Cowboys, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison will have a chance to make franchise history. Thanks to his two sacks in Sunday’s road loss to the Baltimore Ravens, Harrison now only needs one full sack in order to surpass Jason Gildon (77.0) for the…


Le’Veon Bell Says Even Practices Are Too Sloppy

Oof, this one isn’t going to feel too good coming off Sunday’s loss that has put the Pittsburgh Steelers in a three-game spiral. After a 13 penalty game, one where its offense was stuck in the mud and special teams abysmal, it’s clear the team has a lot of things…


Browns’ Player Makes Bold Prediction: We Will Win A Game

In Cleveland, that is the goal. Or really, the hope. Not win the North. Not make the playoffs. Not hoist a Lombardi. Just win one game. Linebacker Christian Kirksey issued this brash decree yesterday via Cleveland.com. Buckle up. We’re not going to go 0-16,” he said after Sunday’s 35-10 loss…


Antonio Brown Wants Help And Eli Rogers Needs To Provide It

Immediately following the Pittsburgh Steelers loss to the Baltimore Ravens, wide receiver Antonio Brown delivered some uncharacteristically profound comments when talking to the media. “Others have to step up,” said Brown, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com. Brown, who caught 7 passes for 85 yards and a touchdown Sunday afternoon…


Steelers Vs Ravens Positional Grades

What an ugly, embarrassing performance by the Pittsburgh Steelers in two of three phases of the game against the Baltimore Ravens on the road at M&T Bank Stadium. Once again, the Steelers were largely embarrassed on the road, but this time they were embarrassed coming off of a bye week…


Watch: Steelers Vs Ravens Initial Analysis

As usual, my post-game recap following the Pittsburgh Steelers, sigh, 21-14 loss yesterday afternoon to the Baltimore Ravens. Go through why Ben Roethlisberger struggled, the poor third down offense, and the breakdown on special teams. Like we always ask, feel free to chime in with your thoughts over what led to the…


Second Half Off To Rough Start For Sammie Coates

For the second time in three games since suffering a hand injury, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Sammie Coates came away without a catch. Only this time, unlike in the previous two games, he logged a good number of snaps, and was targeted five times, but the only statistic that he…


Starting Window May Have Quickly Closed For DHB After Foot Injury

While the Pittsburgh Steelers may have nominally moved wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey into the starting lineup during the bye week, the Steelers opened yesterday’s game with three tight ends on the field, with Antonio Brown as the line wide receiver, so, technically, he did not start. And now it’s not…


No Excuses For Steelers’ Struggles On The Ground

While there was no shortage of issues with the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offense yesterday, one of the biggest problems was their complete and utter inability to establish anything resembling a running game, recalling some of the worst moments of the late 2000s after the team’s offensive line that won a Super…
