Brandon Boykin

Steelers Film Room: Brandon Boykin Vs Ravens

Over the course of the past month, Brandon Boykin has stepped up in the pecking order to finally become the primary nickel back for the Pittsburgh Steelers, playing a majority of the team’s snaps in each of the past four games. On Sunday, in fact, it was the first time…



Jarvis Jones

Steelers Film Room: Jarvis Jones Vs Ravens

There is not a whole lot to say about Jarvis Jones at this point. For the moment, it doesn’t appear as though he is poised to make any more significant developments, either in his game or in his pass rushing repertoire. What he is now may end up being what…


Cameron Heyward

Steelers Film Room: Cameron Heyward Vs Broncos

Though he didn’t make the Pro Bowl, you would be hard-pressed to find a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, their coaching staff, or their front office, that doesn’t consider fifth-year defensive end Cameron Heyward one anyway. For the second straight year, he leads the team in sacks and has posted…


Robert Golden

Steelers Film Room: Robert Golden Vs Broncos

Over the course of the past two weeks, the Pittsburgh Steelers have experimented more with their dime, or quarters, defensive package, which includes six defensive backs, among them a third safety. Robert Golden served as the third safety on Sunday against the Broncos, typically on obvious passing situations such as…


Martavis Bryant

Steelers Film Room: Martavis Bryant Vs Broncos

Second-year Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant is certainly becoming an enigmatic player. He is immensely talented, but there are still key elements of his game that are holding him back from his full potential, including his hands and his jump ball consistency. But one of his defining traits has…




Brandon Boykin

Steelers Film Room: Brandon Boykin Vs Broncos

It took most of the season, but cornerback Brandon Boykin has finally been seeing the field for the Pittsburgh Steelers over the last three games, playing in the slot as the third cornerback. Not that they bring him in right away during games, even though by the third or fourth…


Ryan Shazier

Steelers Film Room: Ryan Shazier Vs Broncos

The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Ryan Shazier in large part because they were enamored with his speed, envisioning a sideline-to-sideline playmaking Mack linebacker that would start day one. We have seen glimpses of that over the course of his career, but we have yet to see the full picture revealed. No…


Cody Wallace

Steelers Film Room: Cody Wallace Vs Bengals

Everybody knows the score by know when it comes to Pittsburgh Steelers center Cody Wallace. We know why he’s playing in the first place, and we know what type of player he is when he is on the field, so there’s no sense in belaboring the backstory. In light of…


Mike Mitchell

Steelers Film Room: Mike Mitchell Vs Bengals II

The improvement in play in Mike Mitchell’s game from last season to this has no doubt been a key factor in helping the Pittsburgh Steelers defense become the bend-but-don’t-break, opportunistic unit that it has shown itself to be for most of the year. But at the same time, the veteran’s…


Marcus Gilbert

Steelers Film Room: Marcus Gilbert Vs Bengals

Though it doesn’t seem likely that he will actually be recognized for it, Pittsburgh Steelers right tackle Marcus Gilbert has gradually ascended as one of the better right tackles in the league right now. The fact that he only gave up his first sack of the season on Sunday should…


Stephon Tuitt

Steelers Film Room: Stephon Tuitt Vs Bengals

The name Stephon Tuitt may not have been getting called out during games quite as often as earlier in the season as the second-year defensive end quickly racked up 3.5 sacks before suffering an ankle injury, but the former second-round draft pick for the Pittsburgh Steelers has been playing well,…

Steelers Film Room: David DeCastro Vs Bengals

Pittsburgh Steelers right guard David DeCastro has certainly come a long way since the first time he had to play against Geno Atkins, which came during his rookie year, just after he had returned from an MCL tear and missed the first 13 games of the season. Atkins, when healthy,…
