This year, Jon Ledyard and I will be collaborating our scouting reports. We’ll play to our strengths – he’ll be focusing on the individuals while I’ll be looking at overall scheme. These reports will be broken down into two articles, one for offense and one for defense. Our reports for…


Steelers Film Room: Cleveland Browns’ Offensive Scouting Report

This year, Jon Ledyard and I will be collaborating our scouting reports. We’ll play to our strengths – he’ll be focusing on the individuals while I’ll be looking at overall scheme. These reports will be broken down into two articles, one for offense and one for defense. Our reports for…


Steelers Deep Pass Defense Must Improve Starting This Sunday

Much like his predecessor Dick LeBeau, Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Keith Butler believes that in order for his unit to be successful, they must stop the run, tackle the catch and don’t get beat deep. While the 2015 version of the Steelers defense has done well against the run for…


Todd Haley Doesn’t Rule Out Seeing Will Johnson at Running Back

Will Johnson isn’t going away without a fight. Ok, maybe that is some hyperbole. This isn’t Matt Damon getting off Mars in The Martain. But as we’ve written, and you’ve certainly noticed, Johnson has lost his role in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offense. “I feel good about our backs. The other thing…

Time Would Be Now To Lessen Load On DeAngelo Williams

Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams is coming off a career game, in which he recorded the most yards from scrimmage (225) and touches (29) in a single game spanning the length of his 10-year career. He is also 32 years old and suffered from some inflammation in his foot…


Steelers Film Room: Roosevelt Nix Vs Raiders

Pittsburgh Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix admittedly receives a disproportionate amount of attention relative to his role on the team, considering his snaps. I will admit that he is not just a fan favorite, as Alex Kozora wrote about yesterday; he is also a favorite among the writers here. But he…
