Eli Rogers Dominates Snap Count With First-Team Offense

A short while after the Pittsburgh Steelers’ last preseason game against the Eagles, I noted that the team’s usage of the 11 personnel in the third preseason game was going to be something to monitor. In particular, of course, I was interested in tracking the personnel on hand that was…


Film Room: Sammie Coates And Genius Of Todd Haley

Sammie Coates scored a touchdown. That is, if my records are correct, the first touchdown Coates has scored since training camp last season. He didn’t have one last preseason or in camp this year and was shut out the first two games. So it was nice to see him find…


Watch: Steelers Vs Saints Initial Thoughts

My weekly video with my early thoughts position-by-position of the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-14 victory (!!!) over the New Orleans Saints. You can hear it out within a lunch break and still have time to gossip about that new guy in accounts payable. I give my analysis of Landry Jones’ performance,…

Jarvis Jones Gets Pressure Season Underway With Some Pass-Rushing Pressure

Now that the first-team players have finally gotten their first significant workload, the annual Pittsburgh Steelers Jarvis Jones watch is underway as many patiently and impatiently wait to see how the fourth-year outside linebacker looks.

Roethlisberger, Starting Offense Show Business Still Booming

Josh Gordon Hits On Big Plays In Return To Field For Browns

Hey, remember that Josh Gordon guy from a few years back? The guy who briefly took the NFL by storm and vaulted himself into first-team All-Pro recognition in his second season before he badly derailed his career due to foolishness off the field? He’s back, and it looks like he…




Steelers’ Offense Hums, Beat Saints 27-14

As both teams took the field, the Pittsburgh Steelers were hoping to get a look at their first team offense, which included all of their major weapons in Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell, and Ben Roethlisberger, for the first time this year. Needless to say, it seems as though they’re already…



Steelers Vs Saints: Winners And Losers

Lot of winners tonight, not as many losers. Refreshing change of pace. WINNERS 1. Ben Roethlisberger: Roethlisberger was magnificent, going 12/17 for 148 yards and two touchdowns in just two series of work. He was carefully aggressive with a pinpoint 58 yard touchdown to Antonio Brown and some smart, efficient…

Steelers S Shamarko Thomas Leaves Saints Game With Groin Injury

The Pittsburgh Steelers have already suffered an injury in their Friday night preseason game against the New Orleans Saints as safety Shamarko Thomas has left the contest with a groin injury.
