Steelers Film Room: Matt Spaeth Vs Broncos

Outside of a brief stop over in Chicago for a couple of seasons, Matt Spaeth had made for a solid one-two tight end combination for the Pittsburgh Steelers with Heath Miller since the 2007 season, when Spaeth was selected in the third round as the first offensive player drafted in…


Steelers Bring Back ‘Bronco’ Package Against Broncos

Doug Legursky was signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2008, spending some time with the team on the practice squad during that season. Both he and fellow undrafted free agent Ramon Foster managed to make the 53-man roster the following year, and Legursky would spent…


Steelers Film Room Heath: Miller Vs Broncos

The Pittsburgh Steelers have always used tight end Heath Miller in a variety of ways over the years. He has lined up in every tight end formation there is. He lines up as a wide receiver. And on Sunday, for the first time this season, he lined up in the…


Would Mike Tomlin Really Have Gone For Two Late Against The Broncos?

If its and buts were candy and nuts, it would be Christmas every day, right? While I’m not one who normally likes to play the “what if” game when it comes to Pittsburgh Steelers games, it is interesting to ponder what might had happened had their offense scored a touchdown…


Dick LeBeau Promoted To Titans’ Defensive Coordinator

It’s been all quiet on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ coaching staff front. But around the league, plenty of ex-Steelers are getting shuffled around. Yesterday, the Tennessee Titans promoted Dick LeBeau to defensive coordinator. LeBeau will also carry the title of assistant head coach. LeBeau replaces Ray Horton, also an ex-Steelers’ coach,…


Ask Alex: Steelers’ Mailbag

Hey everyone. Good to be back, though unfortunately, the first mailbag with the Pittsburgh Steelers’ season officially over. But still so much to talk about. Couple things to note. No mailbag next week because I will be in Mobile, Alabama for the Senior Bowl. We’ll have our next one in…



Tomlin Says Grant May Be Headed To Safety During Offseason

A few days ago I wrote about the possibility of Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Doran Grant moving to safety next season and on Wednesday, head coach Mike Tomlin was asked about that during his end of the season press conference. “He may be,” said Tomlin of Grant, who the team drafted in…


Don’t Rush To Run Steelers CB Cortez Allen Out Of Town

During his Wednesday press conference to close out the 2015 season, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin didn’t sound overly optimistic when asked if cornerback Cortez Allen would ever be able to become an impact player on defense. Why should he? After all, Allen has only started 7 games since…



Game Rewind: Steelers Vs Broncos Game Notes

Your final game notes of the 2015 season. Abridged version because quite frankly, I don’t think you’re too terribly interested in relieving it. First Half – Kick return. Front five: Arthur Moats–Sean Spence–Vince Williams–Terence Garvin–Shamarko Thomas. Robert Golden behind them. Jesse James/Matt Spaeth/Anthony Chickillo on the wedge. Fitzgerald Toussaint served…


Audio: Tomlin Presser, Steelers’ Free Agents On TribLive Radio

Was happy to be brought back on The Josh Taylor Show with Josh Taylor on TribLive Radio yesterday. We broke down the highlights of the Mike Tomlin press conference and went through some of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ free agents, discussing if they are likely to return. Some of those players…


Martavis Bryant Could Be In For More Rushes Next Season

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant has certainly had an interesting first two seasons in the league since being drafted in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. While regarded as physically gifted and possessing rare talents, there was a reason that he lasted all the way to the…


Chris Boswell Shows ‘Touch’ On Postseason Kickoffs

When the Pittsburgh Steelers signed kicker Chris Boswell a month into the season, he was largely an unknown commodity for obvious reasons. The first-year kicker did not have much of a body of work, having only accrued two offseasons’ worth of work with the Texans and Giants prior to his…


Third-Down Struggles A Common Theme For Low-Scoring Offense In Playoffs

The Pittsburgh Steelers offense put up 34 points during the postseason this year. I should be more specific—the Steelers offense posted 34 total points over a two-game span during the 2015 playoffs, an average of 17 points per game. The same offense that scored 30 or more points in six…
