Film Room: Success On Third Down Contagious

It may not be a great surprise to learn that there is a pretty obvious correlation between the Pittsburgh Steelers having a successful day converting third downs on offense and the offense as a whole having a good game and putting points on the board. Sunday’s game against the Dolphins…


Film Room: No Plays Off For Roosevelt Nix

You wanted Roosevelt Nix? You’ve got Roosevelt Nix. Kicking off what I’m now going to call #FilmRoomFriday, a term I’m confident won’t catch on, I’m going to take a look at the Pittsburgh Steelers’ second-year fullback, who has rightfully become a fan favorite over the past two years, and his…


Film Room: A Look At Kick Returns, Just For Kicks

The Pittsburgh Steelers have not exactly been the most impressive team in the league this year—or in the past several years—when it comes to getting off quality kick returns. Actually, it seems that league return averages as a whole are down this year because there are fewer and fewer returns…



Film Room: L.T. Walton Steps Up

While Stephon Tuitt is expected to return to the starting lineup for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Ricardo Mathews has been ruled out for Sunday’s Wildcard game against the Dolphins, which means that second-year defensive end L.T. Walton is going to continue to play a major role for Pittsburgh’s defensive front. When…


Film Room: Fitzgerald Toussaint Knocks Off The Rust

While we knew going into the regular-season finale that the Pittsburgh Steelers were in all likelihood going to hold Le’Veon Bell out of the game, it wasn’t entirely clear just how extensively DeAngelo Williams would play. It turned out that he played quite a bit, leaving a fairly limited role…


Film Room: Darrius Heyward-Bey Goes Deep

The last go route ball that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey tried to chase down in 2016 came all the way back on November 6, the first time that the Steelers played the Ravens. In that game, he had his foot rolled up on by the trailing defensive back…


Film Room: Sean Davis Vs Browns

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Sean Davis has had a better rookie season than Troy Polamalu did. There, I said it. Of course, that doesn’t exactly account for much, as Polamalu wasn’t exactly an every-down player and had his struggles as a rookie, but it wasn’t long after that that he became…


Film Room: William Gay Shows Heady Play

Earlier today, I mentioned that Pittsburgh Steelers 10th-year cornerback William Gay actually managed to receive an honorable mention in the “Defensive Back” category of Pro Football Focus’ meaningless All-Pro list. But it did get me thinking that we really have not talked much at all about Gay over the course…


Film Room: B.J. Finney Leaky In First Start At Center

The Pittsburgh Steelers had nothing to play for on Sunday, which resulted in them resting a lot of their starters. That included five-time Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey, which resulted in first-year offensive lineman B.J. Finney making his first start at center after making two starts at guard earlier in…


Film Room: Javon Hargrave Filling Biggest Shoes

We are going to finish up today’s look at several of the Pittsburgh Steelers rookies’ performance against the Ravens today with arguably their most important piece, third-round defensive tackle Javon Hargrave. Given the injuries the team has been dealt along the defensive line, the small-school product has become an indispensable…




Film Room: Sean Davis Stakes Claim On ROTY Award

Second-round draft pick Sean Davis was just awarded the Pittsburgh Steelers’ rookie of the year award, so it is probably fitting that we do a film room of the starting safety’s most recent performance against the Ravens, which included, as we brought to you a couple of days ago, a…
