Steelers vs Jets Film Review: Vince Williams

The Pittsburgh Steelers looked like the nickel defense would be their bread and butter entering this season, but it hasn’t exactly worked out that way. Of course, the long-term injury to Ike Taylor and the demotion of Cortez Allen—the team’s two starting cornerbacks—didn’t make that plan any more accessible. But an equally important issue in […]
