In hindsight, it certainly appears to be a good thing that the Pittsburgh Steelers made the decision, which many seemed to believe as a mere afterthought, to bring back tight end David Johnson, whom they originally drafted in 2009, and who played in Pittsburgh until 2013 before spending two seasons…

Butler Credits Red Zone Defense To Practice Habits

Keith Butler, for now, has met his goal. Give up no more than 16 points per game. The biggest reason for that has been a Pittsburgh Steelers’ red zone defense that’s allowed just a lone touchdown on seven trips. Quarterbacks have completed just 3/13 passes, failing to throw a touchdown,…
