Film Room: Artie Burns A Work In Progress

Perhaps I am mistaken, but it doesn’t seem to me as though we have spent a whole lot of time taking a look at Artie Burns this year. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ second-year cornerback has been part of a secondary that has allowed fewer passing yards in the league, measured by…


Film Room: Defending Tyreek An Uphill Battle

The Pittsburgh Steelers had by far their biggest test to date in the regular season when it comes to facing returners, having had to deal with the Chiefs and second-year Tyreek Hill. On the season, he has returned 13 punts, gaining 152 yards on them, averaging 11.7 yards per, with…





Film Room: Sean Davis Delivers Impact Play

I wrote last week that I wouldn’t be too broken up if the Pittsburgh Steelers toyed with the idea of benching second-year starting strong safety Sean Davis. The former second-round pick was having issues in both coverage and run support, and while he made the occasional play, I felt he…


Film Room: T.J. Watt Quiet In Kansas City

We haven’t talked a whole lot about the Pittsburgh Steelers’ most prized rookie, first-round outside linebacker T.J. Watt, in recent weeks. After getting two sacks and an interception in his first career game, he has gone a bit quiet, not drawing much attention to himself positively or negatively. To that…


Film Room: Vance McDonald Delivers In Run Game

Over the course of the past three weeks, the Pittsburgh Steelers have committed heavily to running the ball in two of them, and in each of those two games, new tight end Vance McDonald featured prominently in the blocking schemes. Sunday’s efforts as a run blocker—playing not far from half…


Film Room: Roosevelt Nix Runs Through Chiefs

I think it’s fair to say that the most unfortunate byproduct of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ struggles in the running game this season prior to Sunday’s contest is the fact that it had essentially deprived us of highlights featuring fullback Roosevelt Nix. But that changed in Kansas City amidst an active…


Film Room: James Harrison Goes ‘Fishing’

I find it hard to blame anybody who wants beyond reason to see Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison on the field as much as possible. He is a deserving fan favorite for his dominant play in years past, including a Defensive Player of the Year campaign in 2008, and…


Film Room: Steelers Running Well On Passing Downs

One of the areas in which the Pittsburgh Steelers struggled most on the offensive side of the ball during the early portions of the 2017 regular season has been establishing an effective early-downs running game, the lack of which has forced them to spend far too much time playing behind…


Film Room: Roosevelt Nix Due To Block A Punt

They say that good things come to those who wait, but it wouldn’t seem to me that Pittsburgh Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix is a man who can be accurately portrayed as a patient man. And it seems that each week he gets closer and closer to accomplishing in a meaningful…
