L.T. Walton Gets Surprise Start Over Cam Thomas Against Bills

The Pittsburgh Steelers knew that they would be without second-year starting defensive end Stephon Tuitt for this game after he suffered an ankle injury during the previous preseason game in a friendly fire collision with a teammate.

The Pittsburgh Steelers did not use this third week of the preseason as their regular season dress rehearsal, as is the norm around the league. That much is clear. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger played just two drives, one of which was a three-and-out, and his day was done less than five…


Steelers Set Up To Begin Second Search For Placekicker

It seemed that, after a couple of preseason games, the Pittsburgh Steelers were growing comfortable with their new kicker, former Saint Garrett Hartley, who had made all of his field goals and extra point attempts, and performed reasonably well on kickoffs. Hartley’s signing became necessary when Shaun Suisham, of course,…


Mike Tomlin, Steelers, Turn Down In ‘Tune Up’ Game

The third week of the preseason schedule has been traditionally reserved by coaches as a sort of dress rehearsal for the regular season, where teams do their most extensive gam planning and utilize their starting players for the majority of the team. The Buffalo Bills certainly did not get that…


Steelers May Have Found A Cherry In Punter Jordan Berry

It’s been a while since the Pittsburgh Steelers have had a legitimate weapon at the punting position and based on the way their defense has played so far during the preseason, they sure could use one in 2015. In their blowout loss Saturday to the Buffalo Bills, the Steelers may…


Quick Hits: Steelers vs Bills Winners/Losers

If you can stomach it, my picks from the Pittsburgh Steelers 43-19 loss to the Buffalo Bills today. WINNERS:  Martavis Bryant: Bryant won but it only makes his looming four game suspension sting that much worse. He racked up 138 yards on three catches for gains of 63, 39, and 36…


Steelers Vs Bills Live Update And Discussion Thread: Second Half

The Pittsburgh Steelers have certainly not used this game as the dress rehearsal for the regular season, with Ben Roethlisberger and Michael Vick each only playing two or three drives. Landry Jones was in the game by the end of the half, throwing a touchdown to Martavis Bryant. DeAngelo Williams also scored a touchdown as well…

On The Bubble: Steelers To Watch Today

Today’s game against the Buffalo Bills is the last preseason game before the Pittsburgh Steelers, and every other team in the NFL, has to make their initial cuts from 90 to 75 players on September 1st. The last chance for players on that initial bubble to showcase why they deserve to…

Film Room: Former Steelers OL Wesley Johnson

The Pittsburgh Steelers used a fifth-round draft pick to select lineman Wesley Johnson in the 2014 NFL Draft. Though he worked exclusively at center during the preseason that year, he played all five position along the offensive line during college, a versatile trait that attracted him to the team. It…


Marczi 2015 53-Man Roster Prediction: Post-Packers Game

Offense (24) Quarterback (3) – Ben Roethlisberger, Michael Vick, Landry Jones Analysis: One change. It’s no surprise that the Steelers went out to sign a veteran to replace Bruce Gradkowski. Jones was never going to be the number two this season, so that should not be seen as an indictment…


Steelers Vs Packers Film Room: Shakim Phillips

Rookie undrafted wide receiver Shakim Phillips seemed on the verge eliminating himself from the discussion of earning himself a spot on the practice squad with the Pittsburgh Steelers after experiencing a number of drops, as well as other missed opportunities to make plays over the course of a game and…
