Injured Steelers LB Ryan Shazier Bothered By Worthless Criticism

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier will miss a fourth-straight game this Sunday because of a nagging shoulder/neck injury that he suffered back in Week 2. It’s very unfortunate as the young linebacker is now being labeled as a bust and injury prone. The Ohio State product certainly hears the criticism…

Steelers Film Room: Getting Vick Out Of The Pocket

Back into the film room today breaking down one play the Pittsburgh Steelers ran in Monday night’s win over the San Diego Chargers. I chose it specifically because it’s a play we can trace back to Todd Haley’s time as the passing coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys in 2006. The…

Steelers Film Room: Defensive Sack Review Vs San Diego

Starting a new weekly series breaking down the Pittsburgh Steelers sacks from that week’s game. Should have started this Week 1, but alas, creativity and new ideas are not always my strong suit. Perhaps the most surprising and pleasing aspect of the Steelers defense this season is how often they…

Keith Butler Prefers The K.I.S.S. Approach

Keep it simple, stupid. One of the biggest criticisms to come under Dick LeBeau, especially in his later years, was an overly complex playbook that didn’t allow younger players to assimilate and play fast. It’s been a point of emphasis for Keith Butler to tweak the defense, allowing defenders to…

With the Pittsburgh Steelers playing the Arizona Cardinals this weekend at Heinz Field, the crew at the team’s official website were able to get linebacker James Harrison and offensive coordinator Todd Haley to sit down together to talk about Super Bowl XLIII and more importantly, the 100 yard interception return…


James Harrison

Steelers Film Room: James Harrison Vs Chargers

Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison doesn’t look like somebody who was retired a little over a year ago. He doesn’t look like a 37-year-old, either, but he is. In spite of that, he is still playing well, and contributing, a fact that can be attributed partially to his willingness…


Roosevelt Nix

Steelers Film Room: Roosevelt Nix Vs Chargers

Earlier this week, we talked about first-year Pittsburgh Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix and how he’s seemingly become a sort of personal favorite of head coach Mike Tomlin. He’s done so with his blue collar approach to the game and relentless hustle, which has already made him a standout on special…


Robert Golden

Steelers Film Room: Robert Golden Vs Chargers

The Pittsburgh Steelers may well be entering a sticky situation on Sunday, as they are looking at playing a safety making the first start of his NFL career against an explosive offense that thrives on going vertical. If Will Allen is not able to go—and it doesn’t look like it—fourth-year…
