Steelers Film Room: Re-Scouting Shamarko Thomas

Asking any NFL player to fill the shoes of Troy Polamalu is a hefty task, but requiring those responsibilities of a third-year player who saw just three defensive snaps last season makes the request seem even more monumental.

Where Are They Now? LB Levon Kirkland

When one thinks of the Steelers, both past and present, one tends to think of their linebackers the same way one views a peanut butter sandwich without jelly: the two just go hand-in-hand. One of their greats from the 90s Steelers teams was Levon Kirkland, the 6-foot-1, 275-pound brick house inside…

PFF Updates Steelers Depth Chart Grades, Complete With Inaccuracy

Back in March, prior to the start of free agency, Pro Football Focus took a stab at measuring each team’s depth chart heading into the 2015 football calendar. The Pittsburgh Steelers did not necessarily receive glowing reviews, and, given the fact that they did not add much in free agency,…

Steelers Defense Nickeled Last Season, But Not Much Dime

During the 2013 season, the Pittsburgh Steelers uncharacteristically turned to the dime defense quite often—or rather the quarters package, most often using three safeties in addition to three cornerbacks—at a rate higher than they likely ever had before. This was done in part by necessity due to the season-ending injury…

Predicting First Season Impact of Steelers’ Rookies

Scheuerman’s Versatility Could Give Him Edge Over Harris

Versatility is a trait of growing importance when it comes to the running back position in the NFL, the value of which the Pittsburgh Steelers certainly know thanks to the threefold contributions of Le’Veon Bell as a rusher, receiver, and blocker.
