2016 NFL Draft: CB True Heights

For the second year in a row, we’re breaking down the Combine-invite cornerbacks “true heights.” If you’re not familiar with the concept, it’s a way to help balance out the shorter players with great verticals and the taller ones without hops in an attempt to normalize how “big” a player…

The Optimist’s Take: Improved Tackling Efficiency

The Pittsburgh Steelers have, by and large, been on an upward swing over the course of the past two and a half seasons after they missed the playoffs for two straight seasons, and failed to win a postseason game in four straight years. Last season saw them gain that elusive…

Andy Dalton Back To Throwing Passes For Bengals

You might recall roughly the exact moment at which the Cincinnati Bengals’ 2015 season was drastically derailed, or at least rerouted. In fact, you should recall quite easily if you are a regular reader of this site, since it occurred during a key moment of the Bengals’ second matchup with…

2016 Steelers Pre-Draft Movements: Tackle

Browns Renew Annual QB Speculation As Draft Nears

I think it is safe to say that there is one question in particular more than any others surrounding the Cleveland Browns that is paramount above all others, and the very simple reason for that is because it is a recurring question that we are obliged to ask every other…

Texans Cut Hoyer, Could Steelers Have Interest?

Ok, I’m going to break one of my cardinal rules here. I normally despise the typical “the Steelers should sign Player X” right after a transaction. But when one of those players is someone who spent their time in Pittsburgh, there’s a little more bite to it. The Houston Texans…

Is Another Cornerback Double-Dip Forthcoming For The Steelers?

Are the Pittsburgh Steelers headed for a second consecutive double-dip at the cornerback position during the upcoming 2016 NFL Draft? They certainly could be and especially now that they have decided to part ways with veteran cornerback Cortez Allen once and for all. Not that Allen was a lock to…
