Steelers Film Room: Chris Hubbard Vs Patriots

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had to rely on third-year reserve lineman Chris Hubbard over the course of the last three weeks due to a mid-foot injury to right tackle Marcus Gilbert, and over that span of time, the former undrafted free agent has played at the highest level that he…


Steelers Film Room: Landry Jones Vs Patriots

It goes without saying that whenever Landry Jones is starting a game, you know right off the bat that the Pittsburgh Steelers are at less than full strength. Jones is obviously not going to be starting if the team is healthy. I don’t think that Ben Roethlisberger would even sit…


Steelers Film Room: Le’Veon Bell Vs Patriots

Over the course of the past three years, I have written a lot about the unique talent that is Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell, and I’m not about to grow tired of doing so anytime soon, I don’t think—unless maybe he is playing in a different uniform next season….


Steelers Film Room: Jarvis Jones Vs Patriots

There is no doubt in my mind that for the rest of his career, no matter where he ends up playing after this season, fourth-year Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker Jarvis Jones is going to have a target on his back when it comes to having his play scrutinized. A shortness…


Steelers Film Room: Javon Hargrave Vs Dolphins

In spite of all of the offseason optimism about him, we really haven’t discussed rookie third-round defensive tackle Javon Hargrave a great deal over the course of the season, and even going back into the preseason. Of course, a large part of the reason for that is because his snaps…


Steelers Film Room: Anthony Chickillo Vs Dolphins

On Sunday, Pittsburgh Steelers second-year outside linebacker Anthony Chickillo made his first career start after he recorded the first sack and forced fumble of his career the week before. The coaching staff wanted to see what he could do with a bigger role—and, quite honestly, this is what a lot…


Steelers Film Room: Cobi Hamilton Vs Dolphins

Cobi Hamilton wasn’t even on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ roster when they opened training camp this year, but on Sunday, he was the only player in a Steelers uniform to get into the end zone. Admittedly, it came late in a two-score game, and he only played about a dozen snaps…


Steelers Film Room: Artie Burns Edge Contain

You might recall that I wrote an article shortly after the Pittsburgh Steelers finalized their first draft of their 53-man roster about the cornerback position, and in that article, I focused specifically on the nature of the cornerbacks that they have been adding in recent years, and how that relates…


Steelers Film Room: Artie Burns Vs Jets

We learned over the course of this week that the Pittsburgh Steelers are working the alter their nickel defense, having grown to a level of comfort in rookie first-round cornerback Artie Burns sufficient enough that they believe he can be their nickel defender, which is essentially a demotion of fellow…


Steelers Film Room: Javon Hargrave Vs Jets

Sunday will likely stand to be the biggest game yet for rookie Javon Hargrave. With Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward out for the Miami game, the defensive tackle is expected to see a relatively high snap count. He played a good number of snaps last week when Heyward left…


Steelers Film Room: Jordan Dangerfield Vs Chiefs

When it comes to first-year Pittsburgh Steelers safety Jordan Dangerfield, the tired refrain over the years has become that he doesn’t get any respect. Of course, the obvious tie-in here is to Rodney Dangerfield, but the fact that he was released three times over the course of the previous three…


Steelers Film Room: B.J. Finney Vs Chiefs

Many people were understandably anxious to get a good look at Pittsburgh Steelers first-year offensive lineman B.J. Finney making his first career start on Sunday night against the Chiefs, and, fortunately, he actually did quite well, with very few negative plays, and handful of above the line efforts as well….


Steelers Film Room: Disruptive DE Vs Chiefs

While Cameron Heyward’s three sacks on the day will necessarily draw the headlines, the truth is that both he and Stephon Tuitt at the defensive end spots were pretty consistently wreaking havoc for the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense against the Chiefs. On just the fourth play of the game, Heyward notched…
