Numbers Game Always Had Jordan Zumwalt On Outside Looking In

Yesterday came the news that the Pittsburgh Steelers waived second-year linebacker Jordan Zumwalt with an injury, claiming linebacker L.J. Fort off waivers after he was released by the Patriots. In spite of the fact that, barring injuries, Zumwalt really had minimal chance to actually make the roster, the move was…


2015 Steelers Training Camp: Live Updates From Day 16 – Wednesday

The Pittsburgh Steelers 16th of 18 training camp practices will get underway shortly at Saint Vincent College as the team looks to get ready for their third preseason game Sunday at Heinz Field against the Green Bay Packers. As usual, we will live blog all of news, notes and nuggets from…



Steelers Offense Looking To Set New Tempo In 2015

By now it’s a far cry from stepping out on a limb for anybody to say that the Pittsburgh Steelers have the potential to break out in a big way on the offensive side of the ball in 2015. They have a wealth of talent at all of the skill…


Four Interior Offensive Line Waiver Wire Options For The Steelers

If you listened to The Terrible Podcast Monday evening, I floated the idea of the Pittsburgh Steelers hunting for a ninth offensive lineman. Mike Adams has remains on the PUP following surgery. Who knows, maybe he suffers a setback and starts the year on reserve/PUP. Chris Hubbard and the slew of undrafted offensive lineman have…


Touted Lineman Training Camp Battle Falling Short Of Expectations

Soon after the draft, it seemed that we were promised what should have been an exciting training camp battle from the group of interior offensive linemen that the Pittsburgh Steelers brought in this year, but thus far, the group as a whole has without question been a disappointment. With incumbent…


Steelers WR Depth Chart Looking More Shallow As Games Wear On

When the Pittsburgh Steelers first opened training camp, it certainly seemed as though they were primed, once again, to be stacked from top to bottom at the wide receiver position, but that appears to be a less assured probability as we approach the midway point of the preseason. In 2014,…



Player Poaching Still The Exception, Not The Rule

You know you’re getting to the heart of the preseason when the dialogue begins over which players the Pittsburgh Steelers absolutely must keep on the 53-man roster or else they are certain to be claimed off waivers by any number of teams. This season, there seems to be a healthy…




Steelers Training Camp Roster Battles Entering Final Stages

Even though there are three preseason games still remaining for the Pittsburgh Steelers, the roster battles for a few open spots are now clearly in focus. By my count, 46 of 54 roster spots (Le’Veon Bell plus 53) are locked up barring any future injuries as we sit here today. Those…


Practice Squad May Have No Need For Linebackers In 2015

With the Pittsburgh Steelers seeming increasingly likely to carry a rare 10 linebackers on their 53-man roster this season, that likely means that we won’t have what has typically been a staple on the practice squad this year: the developmental linebacker. If the Steelers do choose to carry 10 linebackers,…


Steelers Appear Serious About Two-Point Conversions

Are the Pittsburgh Steelers really intending to be more aggressive on offense this season, going for two points after a touchdown with greater frequency rather than just settling for an extra point attempt from 33 yards out? The evidence is there to make the case. Obviously, the fact that the…


Ross Ventrone Losing Edge Over Competition While Sidelined

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ross Ventrone has two accrued NFL seasons under his belt, but during neither of those occasions did he manage to make the 53-man roster out of training camp. With him being sidelined for a while now with a lower leg injury, I can’t help but think it’s…
