Steelers vs Vikings Film Room: Cody Wallace

The Pittsburgh Steelers offense looked awfully effete on Sunday night during the Hall of Fame game versus the Minnesota Vikings, a fact that can be safely accounted for wholesale simply by pointing out that only three starters—all offensive linemen—actually played.

Steelers Film Room: Tampa 2 MIKE Rules

The defensive buzzword in camp was “Cover 2.” But prior to the Hall of Fame game, it was impossible to know how much bite there was to the bark. It’s still just one game, and a lack of coaches film still makes it difficult to see schemes, but there is…
