Mike Munchak Says Steelers’ OL Needs To Clean Up Penalties

It’s been a revolving door for the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offensive line. And to their credit, it’s a group that has hung tough and done relatively well. But there is one area their coach, Mike Munchak, would like to see major improvement on. “Penalties. I think that’s something that for whatever…


Eli Rogers Was Definitely In Mike Tomlin’s Doghouse Sunday

Yesterday, we and others wondered aloud as to why Eli Rogers didn’t see a single snap against the New England Patriots. He was healthy and the rest of the receiving group wasn’t. Sammie Coates could barely see the field with a hand injury and Markus Wheaton continued to miss because…

Steelers Give Xavier Grimble Long Look Sunday

This may not have been obvious based on the stat lines, but on Sunday against the Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers first-year tight end Xavier Grimble played an awful lot of football, seeing 42 snaps during the game, many of which came as the lone tight end on the field, and equating…


Steelers Film Room: Jarvis Jones Vs Patriots

There is no doubt in my mind that for the rest of his career, no matter where he ends up playing after this season, fourth-year Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker Jarvis Jones is going to have a target on his back when it comes to having his play scrutinized. A shortness…


Bengals Rotating Cedric Ogbuehi To Help Him Learn

Over the course of the last—well, a good long while—the Cincinnati Bengals have, more than most, allowed a lot of their talent to walk in free agency. Among those who they let find a new home in free agency in 2016 that isn’t talked about all that much was veteran…
