Steelers WR Depth Chart Looking More Shallow As Games Wear On

When the Pittsburgh Steelers first opened training camp, it certainly seemed as though they were primed, once again, to be stacked from top to bottom at the wide receiver position, but that appears to be a less assured probability as we approach the midway point of the preseason. In 2014,…

Player Poaching Still The Exception, Not The Rule

You know you’re getting to the heart of the preseason when the dialogue begins over which players the Pittsburgh Steelers absolutely must keep on the 53-man roster or else they are certain to be claimed off waivers by any number of teams. This season, there seems to be a healthy…

On Steelers OLB Anthony Chickillo: I’m Not Saying, I’m Just Saying

How many of you reading this post are Anthony Chickillo fans? Like most of you, I am a Chickillo fan as well and after first having some doubts that he could make the transition from 3-4 defensive end to a 3-4 outside linebacker, I think the Pittsburgh Steelers were wise…

20 Things We’ll Miss About Training Camp

As the final week of training camp winds down, it has come to my attention that for many of these players, this will be the last time we get to see them on the practice fields of St. Vincent College. And while their on-field contributions likely won’t be missed, this…

Training Camp Statistical Recap: First 15 Practices

As we always visit on off days, a statistical recap of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ training camp. Prefacing like usual, these numbers lose a lot of context and should only be a supplemental way to judge these players. It’s for fun, more than anything else. The last two days and the…

Steelers Waive RB Cameron Stingily From IR With Injury Settlement

The Pittsburgh Steelers made a minor transaction Monday afternoon as rookie undrafted running back Cameron Stingily was waived from Reserve/Injured with an injury settlement. Stingily suffered a serious knee injury during the team’s preseason opening loss to the Minnesota Vikings. The Northern Illinois product underwent surgery last week to repair…

Steelers Training Camp Roster Battles Entering Final Stages

Even though there are three preseason games still remaining for the Pittsburgh Steelers, the roster battles for a few open spots are now clearly in focus. By my count, 46 of 54 roster spots (Le’Veon Bell plus 53) are locked up barring any future injuries as we sit here today. Those…

Steelers Waive QB Tajh Boyd, Sign WR Jarrod West

According to a Tuesday morning report, the Pittsburgh Steelers have waived quarterback Tajh Boyd and signed wide receiver Jarrod West. The move isn’t overly surprising being as Boyd hasn’t even played a snap so far during the preseason. Also, with Bruce Gradkowski now back practicing again after starting training camp…

Practice Squad May Have No Need For Linebackers In 2015

With the Pittsburgh Steelers seeming increasingly likely to carry a rare 10 linebackers on their 53-man roster this season, that likely means that we won’t have what has typically been a staple on the practice squad this year: the developmental linebacker. If the Steelers do choose to carry 10 linebackers,…

Steelers Appear Serious About Two-Point Conversions

Are the Pittsburgh Steelers really intending to be more aggressive on offense this season, going for two points after a touchdown with greater frequency rather than just settling for an extra point attempt from 33 yards out? The evidence is there to make the case. Obviously, the fact that the…

Ross Ventrone Losing Edge Over Competition While Sidelined

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ross Ventrone has two accrued NFL seasons under his belt, but during neither of those occasions did he manage to make the 53-man roster out of training camp. With him being sidelined for a while now with a lower leg injury, I can’t help but think it’s…

Touchbacks Doing Dri Archer A Disservice As Returner

It is difficult to be an avid sports fan and to no develop a pet peeve or two. One of the pet peeves that I hold while watching preseason football is the idea of teams with established kickers, particularly established kickers known for a big leg, routinely booting kickoffs out…

Anthony Chickillo Making Himself Tough Player To Cut

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie outside linebacker Anthony Chickillo has arguably been the biggest riser since the start of training camp. If not the biggest, certainly among the few who have seen their stock rise most significantly. When the pick was first made, many wondered whether he was drafted to play defensive…
