Report: Roethlisberger Looking Likely To Play Against Ravens

There won’t be an official status update on Ben Roethlisberger’s health for almost another week but a new report seems to make it sound almost certain you can count on Roethlisberger starting Week Nine against the Baltimore Ravens. CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora wrote briefly on the situation in his…




DHB’s Season-High Snap Count Yields Low Impact Despite Touchdown

If you really want to gain some understanding as to just how shorthanded the Pittsburgh Steelers offense was on Sunday against the Patriots, I think no individual statistic might illustrate that point better than noting the fact that wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, who is essentially fifth on the depth chart…


Steelers Film Room: Maurkice Pouncey Vs Patriots

Considering the fact that he has a number of All-Pro honors in his background and is coming off an entire season missed due to injury, it is a bit odd that we haven’t talked a great deal about Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey over the course of the first six…


Film Room: Antonio Brown “Spears” The Patriots

Listen, we’ve been a bit negative around here lately. Lose two straight games and that’ll happen. But not everything is terrible. The Pittsburgh Steelers are still in first place. We’re about to gain an hour of sleep. Look at this puppy.  And Landry Jones‘ 51 yard completion to Antonio Brown…


Steelers Unlikely To Dip Their Toes In Trade Frenzy

It’s been a couple unusually active days in the NFL But with the trade deadline looming, November 1st, it’s not a total shock. We’ve seen the New England Patriots make a flurry of moves. They acquired linebacker Kyle Van Noy from the Detroit Lions and then ship out tight end…


Steelers Give Xavier Grimble Long Look Sunday

This may not have been obvious based on the stat lines, but on Sunday against the Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers first-year tight end Xavier Grimble played an awful lot of football, seeing 42 snaps during the game, many of which came as the lone tight end on the field, and equating…


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…


Bengals Rotating Cedric Ogbuehi To Help Him Learn

Over the course of the last—well, a good long while—the Cincinnati Bengals have, more than most, allowed a lot of their talent to walk in free agency. Among those who they let find a new home in free agency in 2016 that isn’t talked about all that much was veteran…



Steelers WR Eli Rogers Refuses To Elaborate On Sunday’s Inactivity

If you’re like me, you were probably surprised that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Eli Rogers didn’t play a single snap in Sunday’s home loss to the New England Patriots even though he did dress for the game. I initially figured that Rogers reinjured his toe during warmups prior to the game, but…


Carnell Lake Says Golden Responsible For Gronkowski TD

It’s a play that’s been talked about a lot among Steelers’ Nation. Here and elsewhere. Rob Gronkowski’s 36 yard touchdown, one of two splash plays given up by the defense in the second half. Myself and even Tunch Ilkin in his Chalk Talk over on Steelers.com circled on Sean Davis…


History Says Steelers Defensive ANY/A Is Too High To Win Super Bowl

Being as the Pittsburgh Steelers enter their Week 8 bye in sole possession of first place in the AFC North division, it’s easy to reason that they still have a good shot at not only making the playoffs, but winning their seventh Lombardi trophy as well. After all, the team…


Steelers Bye Week Yet Again Comes At Perfect Moment

Week 8 of the NFL season is upon us. The Steelers are 4-3; they remain loosely gripped on the division lead, and are now heading to the bye week. We seemingly say this every year, but it appears that this week off could not have come at a better time….
