Report: Rams RB Todd Gurley Expected To Play Against Steelers

St. Louis Rams rookie running back Todd Gurley is probably itching to take the field for the first time since tearing up his knee last November and it appears as though he’ll get that chance today against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Gurley, the Rams first-round draft pick out of Georgia, is flying…


Sammie Coates Headshot

Dressing Doesn’t Necessarily Mean Playing For Sammie Coates

In spite of the fact that he was getting a helmet on game day, the Pittsburgh Steelers last week released rookie undrafted wide receiver Tyler Murphy in order to make room for running back Le’Veon Bell, returning from the suspended list. Murphy was not only getting a helmet on game…

Le’Veon Bell’s Return A Welcome Sight For Passing Game

The Pittsburgh Stelers offense survived, even thrived, during its two games served without starting running back Le’Veon Bell, thanks in large part to the fine performances of his new backup, longtime Panther DeAngelo Williams, who rushed for 204 yards on 41 carries with three touchdowns. Williams also caught five passes,…

McCullers Injury Should See Cam Thomas Get More Playing Time

With second-year nose tackle Daniel McCullers being declared out after suffering what looked like a nastier lower leg injury than it mercifully turned out to be, expect to see a healthy dose of Cam Thomas later today, and perhaps later in the week, as it seems likely the young defensive…

Explosive Plays Not An Issue For Steelers Defense Heading Into Week 3

The Pittsburgh Steelers head into the their Week 3 game against the St. Louis Rams with a 1-1 record and while their defense was certainly shaky in their Week 1 loss to the New England Patriots, they did show some noticeable improvement last week in their win over the San…


Antonio Brown Head Shot

Grantland’s Bill Barnwell Thinks Antonio Brown’s 5/50 Streak Is Silly

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has caught at least five passes for a minimum of 50 yards in 34 consecutive games and that’s an NFL record. Bill Barnwell of Grantland, however, thinks the streak is silly. Antonio Brown’s five-catch, 50-yard streak has always been silly; not only is it…

Pass Rush The Key For Both Teams Sunday

In scouting the St. Louis Rams this week, I only saw one area that could (should) prevent the Steelers from a victory on Sunday if Pittsburgh executes their offense properly. Unsurprisingly that area was the Rams defensive line, a dynamic and deep unit with the skill to make life miserable…

Roethlisberger Will Be First To Know When Miller Time Is Over

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and tight end Heath Miller have built quite a relationship over the years and their relationship on the field doesn’t appear as though it will be ending anytime soon as the quarterback recently revealed a conversation he’s had with Miller that likely means the tight…
