Report: Steelers To Look At CB Doran Grant As A Safety Soon

Remember all of that talk about Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Doran Grant possibly making a move to safety this year? Well, apparently that’s still a possibility, according to one of the team’s beat writers. During his Wednesday online chat, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette was asked about Grant and he…


Training Camp Recap: Skill Position Evaluation

With tomorrow’s first preseason game looming, I wanted to break down my thoughts on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ skill positions from what we’ve seen throughout the first 11 days of camp. Still a long ways to go, of course, and tomorrow’s game will change a lot of perspective, but I wanted…



Report: Recurring Headaches Keeping New Steelers TE Ladarius Green Sidelined

Due to him still being on the team’s Active PUP list, new Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Ladarius Green will obviously miss the Friday night preseason opener against the Detroit Lions. Additionally, one can probably go ahead and count on Green missing the team’s second preseason game next Thursday against the…


Ranking The Room: AFC North Interior DL

Now that we’ve gone completely through the offensive side of the ball in “Ranking the Rooms” of the AFC North, it’s time to move over to the defensive side of the ball where the picture at each position becomes murkier. Today, we’ll take a look at interior defensive linemen. 1…


Alejandro Villanueva Praises OL Professionalism

For a starting gig, there is only one battle to pay attention this year. And it comes at the most important position. Left tackle. Alejandro Villanueva is taking on challenger Ryan Harris in camp, rotating first team days. And though Villanueva is the incumbent, someone who performed admirably in his…



Lions’ Jim Caldwell Is ‘Steady Eddie’ To Steelers’ Mike Tomlin

Prior to the Pittsburgh Steelers hiring Todd Haley to be their offensive coordinator in 2012, it was reported that head coach Mike Tomlin met with Jim Caldwell about the opening. Caldwell, who is now the head coach of the Detroit Lions, certainly wasn’t a stranger to Tomlin at the time as…


Tomlin Expecting Attitude And Demeanor Out Of Steelers Young RBs

When the Pittsburgh Steelers open their 2016 preseason Friday night at Heinz Field against the Detroit Lions, we’re unlikely to see the team’s top two running backs play a single snap as Le’Veon Bell and DeAngelo Williams are expected to be sidelined for that game. Should that indeed wind up…


Antonio Brown’s Relentless Drive Shows Up In Altercation With Official

It almost seems as though Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is inching closer and closer to getting himself ejected from a game. Last season, the seventh-year man drew two personal foul penalties in a game. Though both were not qualifying personal fouls, the league passed a rule this past…


Roethlisberger Highly Productive With Long Ball In 2015

While much has been written about Ben Roethlisberger’s 2015 season—both the good and the bad—one facet that I believe has not been touched on enough is the emerging, or perhaps re-emerging prevalence and success of the long ball not just on his game, but in the offense as a whole….


Lawrence Timmons Drops Some Weight To Keep Up Quickness

During the late stages of the 2015 regular season, the Pittsburgh Steelers began incrementally adopting the use of their dime, or quarter, defense, a sub-package that employs three cornerbacks and three safeties, removing the nose tackle and an inside linebacker from the field in order to better defend against obvious…


John Harbaugh Thinks His Walking Wounded Will Be Ready For Opener

The Baltimore Ravens were snakebitten about as bad as anybody that we have seen in recent years last season when it comes to injuries, and that no doubt played a big role in their crawling to a dismal 5-11 season that gave them the sixth-overall selection in the 2016 NFL…


2016 Camp Questions: Can Doran Grant Help On Defense?

Training camp is now upon us, in case you have failed to take notice. The Pittsburgh Steelers reported to Latrobe on July 28, and began practicing the following day in preparation for their first preseason game on August 12, and eventually, for the 2016 regular season in April. Every NFL…
