Haley On Coates: “I Think He’s Starting To Get Some Confidence Back’

In the Pittsburgh Steelers Week 15 over the Cincinnati Bengals, wide receiver Sammie Coates caught one pass for 10 yards late in the first half. That, by the way, was Coates’ first reception since the Week 7 game against the New England Patriots. Additionally, Coates played 40% of the team’s…


Danny Smith Says His Kickers Are Athletes, Work On Tackling

It’s the worst sight for coaches and fans alike. Holding your breath in the hopes a kicker makes a tackle. It happened twice last Sunday. Randy Bullock shoved Sammie Coates out of bounds after a 44 yard return and Chris Boswell made arguably the play of the day, a nearly…


Defense Wasn’t The Issue Last Time Ravens And Steelers Met

In the last game that took place between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens, the reality is that both defenses played awfully well. Outside of a gaffe that resulted in a 95-yard touchdown pass—which is not to be dismissed, of course—the Ravens did not exactly dominate the Steelers. In…


Mike Wallace Compares Steelers Rookie CB Artie Burns To Ike Taylor

Watch: Steelers’ Vet Receivers Help Out Big Ben Sunday

Our weekly talk to the tape segment. Different route this time focusing on a couple of examples of veteran players understanding the nuances of route running and how they ultimately played an overlooked role in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Ravens Have Been No Road Warriors In 2016

The Baltimore Ravens may be having a pretty strong season—at least in comparison to their 2015 season, but one thing that cannot be said about them is that they have been road warriors of any sort. And that is bad news, because they are out of home games, where they…


Film Room: Ryan Shazier Makes Plays In Cincy

You can probably make the case that third-year Pittsburgh Steelers inside linebacker Ryan Shazier is having his best season yet. Though he has miss two games and parts of others, while also playing through a knee injury in the early parts of the season that may have limited him, he…
