Chris Hubbard

Steelers Film Room: Chris Hubbard Vs Raiders

Over the past few years, we have seen Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley’s tendency to use an extra lineman on occasion as an additional blocker, a tackle-eligible tight end, and due to injuries, right now that additional lineman is second-year guard Chris Hubbard, a former undrafted free agent who…


Jesse James

Steelers Film Room: Jesse James Vs Raiders

Much to the great pleasure of Penn State fans, Pittsburgh Steelers rookie tight end Jesse James made his NFL debut on Sunday, garnering positive reviews. Much has been written about his debut, the highlight of which was his first career touchdown pass, including by us, but below, you will understand…


Darrius Heyward-Bey

Steelers Film Room: Darrius Heyward-Bey Vs Raiders

It was assumed that when the Pittsburgh Steelers activated Martavis Bryant from suspension, that would essentially spell the end of Darrius Heyward-Bey as a significant offensive contributor. That is how it started, but the veteran has been seeing more time the past couple of weeks. On Sunday, Heyward-Bey logged 22…


Roosevelt Nix

Steelers Film Room: Roosevelt Nix Vs Raiders

Pittsburgh Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix admittedly receives a disproportionate amount of attention relative to his role on the team, considering his snaps. I will admit that he is not just a fan favorite, as Alex Kozora wrote about yesterday; he is also a favorite among the writers here. But he…


Daniel McCullers

Steelers Film Room: Daniel McCullers Vs Bengals

While it would not be accurate to say that the Pittsburgh Steelers had big plans for their big nose tackle, the fact is that second-year defensive lineman Daniel McCullers suffered a notable knee injury in the second game of the season has complicated their defense to a degree. Shuffling depth…

Steelers Film Room: Antwon Blake Vs Bengals

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had not had a real good whipping boy since the heyday of William Gay in 2009, and Antwon Blake has come close this season to bearing that level of animosity. And to be truthful, much of it had been merited based on his play. But it’s…


Mike Mitchell

Steelers Film Room: Mike Mitchell Vs Bengals

We know have an entire half-season’s body of work upon which to judge Mike Mitchell in comparison to last season. While it’s obvious that much of his playing better has to do with being notably healthier and more in-tuned with the defense and his teammates, I also think he is…


Ross Cockrell

Steelers Film Room: Ross Cockrell Vs Bengals

He wasn’t in their plans to start the season—really, he wasn’t even on the roster a week prior—but second-year cornerback Ross Cockrell has become an integral part of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense since assuming the nickel back role in the second game of the season. Cockrell has logged 337 snaps…


Cameron Heyward

Steelers Film Room: Cameron Heyward Vs Bengals

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been riding Cameron Heyward hard all season, a missive that has only ramped up over the course of the past two games while fellow starting defensive end Stephon Tuitt has been sidelined with a knee injury. In fact, the fifth-year lineman missed just two snaps during…


Robert Golden

Steelers Film Room: Robert Golden Vs Bengals

Fourth-year Pittsburgh Steelers safety Robert Golden has started the past four games, and played the majority of the past four, in place of the injured Will Allen. With Allen returning to practice this week, head coach Mike Tomlin may have to make a decision as to who should be out…


Le'Veon Bell

Steelers Film Room: Le’Veon Bell Vs Chiefs

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell gets talked a lot around here, and rightfully so. He accounts for more of the team’s offense than anybody else, setting a new franchise mark for yards from scrimmage just last year. This year, he is already averaging over 100 yards on the ground…


Marcus Gilbert

Steelers Film Room: Marcus Gilbert Vs Chiefs

For one reason or another, not a lot of attention has been paid to Pittsburgh Steelers right tackle Marcus Gilbert this season. Ordinarily, it’s a good sign for an offensive lineman when he goes unnoticed, but we are not the sort to overlook quality offensive line play. And that is…


Ryan Shazier

Steelers Film Room: Ryan Shazier Vs Chiefs

The Pittsburgh Steelers defense really could have used Ryan Shazier back after missing four games with what seemed to be a minor shoulder injury, but on Sunday, he was only back, really, by name, as he did not have the sort of impact that you would expect him to have….


Robert Golden

Steelers Film Room: Robert Golden Vs Chiefs

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had fourth-year safety Robert Golden in the lineup for all but eight snaps over the course of the past three weeks, and with Will Allen downgraded yesterday to not participating in practice, there exists the strong possibility that he gets his third straight start. By and…


Alejandro Villanueva

Steelers Film Room: Alejandro Villanueva Vs Chiefs

While anticipating Alejandro Villanueva’s first start for the Pittsburgh Steelers, it was not the end result that I was most interested in. It was obvious, given his limited experience, that mistakes would be made. What I was most interested in seeing was whether or not he would be able to…
