Steelers Vs Eagles Positional Grades

Sunday’s trip to Philadelphia was nothing short of a disaster for the Pittsburgh Steelers, who fell to the Philadelphia Eagles, 34-3, marking the worst loss in the Mike Tomlin era. Not only was the score ugly, so too was the game itself in almost every facet of the game for…


Steelers Likely Preparing To Move 3rd-String RB To Practice Squad

As I wrote yesterday morning, the Pittsburgh Steelers at least have to look forward to the fact that the next time the offense that scored three points in Philadelphia takes the field, it will have All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell on it. But while he was already back on the…


Steelers Opened As 4-Point Home Favorites Over Chiefs

Even though they were drubbed 34-3 on Sunday by the Philadelphia Eagles and will next play a team very similar to them in Week 4, the Pittsburgh Steelers opened the week as a home favorite over the Kansas City Chiefs. After initially opening up as 4-point favorite over the Chiefs…


Remedying Pass Rush Starts With Increasing James Harrison’s Snaps

At this point of the season, there is no magic wand, no Excalibur’s sword, no secret potion to completely fix the Pittsburgh Steelers’ pass rush. You roll with what you have, tweak the system and scheme a bit, and cross your fingers. That doesn’t mean changes can’t be made. They could,…


Study: Why Keith Butler Needs To Start Sending Five

The sample size is small and the result maybe a little obvious but the Pittsburgh Steelers five man rush has produced the best results this season. Not burying the lede here. That’s the conclusion. Let’s show why. After three weeks, I sifted through the weekly charting we conduct to get…


Le’Veon Bell: ‘I Will Be Ready’ On Sunday

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell worked with the team in practice in preparation for a meaningful game yesterday for the first time since October of 2015, as he was preparing for the November 1 game against the Bengals in which he suffered multiple torn ligaments in his knee that…


B.J. Finney Holds His Own In NFL Debut

In spite of the fact that the Pittsburgh Steelers took a shellacking on Sunday evening courtesy of the Eagles, we didn’t really learn a whole lot that we didn’t already know. Basically, for the most part, it was a game in which all of the team’s shortcomings were accentuated, and…


Struggling Bengals Defense Gets Boost With Return Of Vontaze Burfict

It’s been a long wait, but after three games, he’s finally back. Well, they’re both back. The Pittsburgh Steelers have Le’Veon Bell back after completing a three-game suspension for violation of the league’s substance abuse policy, and the Cincinnati Bengals are getting back the man who ended his season, linebacker…



Steelers Release RB Brandon Brown-Dukes From Practice Squad

The Pittsburgh Steelers made a minor transaction on Monday as running back Brandon Brown-Dukes was released from the team’s practice squad. This move isn’t overtly surprising with starting running back Le’Veon Bell now able to return this week from his three-game suspension. The release of Brown-Dukes, however, now means that the Steelers have an…


Steelers Loss To Eagles Included One Of Those Touchderceptions

Thanks to a holding penalty on Pittsburgh Steelers guard David DeCastro, the fourth quarter deep pass from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey wouldn’t have stood as a touchdown had it not been ruled an interception instead. With that disclaimer out of the way, I really wonder if this really…


Steelers Looking To Move On From Eagles’ Loss

As tough, frustrating, ugly, insert adjective here as the Pittsburgh Steelers 34-3 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles loss, this is still a 2-1 team with as good a shot as anyone to win the AFC North. And the only way to get the sour taste of yesterday out of their mouth…


The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers Eagles Game Recap, Injuries & More

Season 7, Episode 20 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Monday show, David Todd and I get right to talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers embarrassing road loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Ahead of talking about the debacle at Lincoln Financial Field, David and I run down the long list of injuries…



Steelers Have Until Thursday To Make Roster Move With RB Le’Veon Bell

The Pittsburgh Steelers will get running back Le’Veon Bell back this week now that he has served his three-game suspension and while a roster transaction is forthcoming in order to accommodate him, it doesn’t need to be made until later on in the week. According to Burt Lauten, the Steelers…
