Steelers Film Room: Al-Hajj Shabazz Vs Eagles

As has been discussed fairly amply by now, the Pittsburgh Steelers are in a bit of a bind when it comes to looking for and finding quality depth at the cornerback position, especially after Senquez Golson was injured. It’s serious enough that they’re kicking the tires on another old re-tread…




Williams Extension Likely Seals Timmons’ Pittsburgh Future

Though the news just broke, and hey, it’s great news for a former sixth round pick who has worked hard and unquestionably earned his contract, Vince Williams’ contract extension has an underlying message stapled to it. This is Lawrence Timmons’ final year in Pittsburgh. The Pittsburgh Steelers have opted against extending…


Landry Jones Not Ignoring Positives From Eagles Game

Hear it? That sound. That’s the sound of someone immediately scrolling to the comments section to say how horrible and stupid Landry Jones is. And with that, we’re all in regular season form. There’s no denying it’s hard to be happy, or even content, with the Pittsburgh Steelers’ first half…


Nickel Continues To Dominate Steelers’ Personnel Groupings

We’re just two games into this preseason and one thing remains clear within the Steelers’ defensive units: the Nickel formation is the go-to package in almost every situation. There are some factors to consider here, however, so it’s important not to put a huge amount of weight on some of…


Keenan Lewis Reunion Would Continue Steelers’ Tradition

I don’t want to pretend the ink has been put on the paper yet but Keenan Lewis re-signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers would be just another in a long line of Steel City reunions. So let’s get a little nostalgic with the previous players who left for greener pastures but…

Quite simply, it appears that they will need him, because they have little else in the form of known commodities when it comes to…



Steelers Vs Eagles: Game Notes

Game notes from the Pittsburgh Steelers Week 2 preseason loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. First Half – B.J. Finney got work as part of the wedge on the starting kick return unit. Replaced Roosevelt Nix. The front five of that unit: Arthur Moats-Steven Johnson-Vince Williams-Jordan Zumwalt-Shamarko Thomas – Nice job…


Steelers Film Room: Fitzgerald Toussaint Vs Eagles

Fitzgerald Toussaint has been quite a find for the Pittsburgh Steelers as a No. 3 running back behind Le’Veon Bell and DeAngelo Williams. Without the Michigan product, who knows if the Steelers advance to the divisional round in last year’s playoffs. Although Toussaint fumbled against the Denver Broncos, costing the Steelers…


Steelers Film Room: Sean Davis Vs Eagles

For the moment, at least, the Pittsburgh Steelers are counting on rookie defensive back Sean Davis to be able to be an immediate contributor on the defensive side of the ball, serving as the team’s starting nickel back. Though he was drafted to play safety, injury and need has moved…


Steelers Film Room: Daniel McCullers Vs Eagles

During the Pittsburgh Steelers’ first preseason game, the coaching staff evidently wanted to give third-year nose tackle Daniel McCullers a very long spell. If I recall, he played around 40 snaps in the game, and his level of effort and execution, as you might expect, wavered quite a bit in…


Ravens Get Elvis Dumervil, Breshad Perriman Back From PUP List

The Baltimore Ravens ended the 2015 season with a number of injuries to key players. Consequently, they began the 2016 training camp sessions with a number of key players listed on the Physically Unable to Perform List. But slowly and surely, they have been gradually getting all of their missing…


2016 South Side Questions: Where Is DeCastro’s New Deal?

Training camp has ended, and the Pittsburgh Steelers have reverted back to taking their practices at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex, formerly known and still referred to as the ‘South Side’ facility of Heinz Field. While training camp might have seen a lot of work put into the team and…
