Video: Skip Bayless And Shannon Sharpe Debate Elliott Or Bell

Let me begin this post by saying that I am not a fan of either Skip Bayless or Shannon Sharpe. Additionally, I’ve never seen a full episode of their new show Undisputed. With that disclaimer now out of the way, it was fun to watch the two argue about Ezekiel…



Bengals Replace Nugent With Bullock Ahead Of Steelers Game

A familiar face will be kicking for the Cincinatti Bengals on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. On Tuesday, the Bengals added kicker Randy Bullock to their roster just one day after he was waived by the Steelers. Bullock, who was signed to the Steelers roster a week ago Saturday, made all…


Roethlisberger Hopes Williams’ Return Results In Less Abuse For Bell

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell certainly earned his keep in the team’s Sunday win over the Buffalo Bills as the former second-round draft pick touched the football a career-high 42 times during the game on his way to registering 298 yards from scrimmage. While several Steelers’ fans are concerned…


Fowler: Burfict Personally Apologized To Antonio Brown For Wild Card Hit

Is this a real life Grinch story? Did Vontaze Burfict’s heart grow three sizes? Probably not. But Burfict did personally apologize to Antonio Brown during the offseason. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler has the interesting nugget. He writes that the two were in Miami during the offseason, intentionally or not it’s not…


Roethlisberger And Tomlin Explain Decision To Throw Early, Often Against Bills

In the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday road win over the Buffalo Bills the offense opened the game passing the football 13 times while running it just three times during their first two possessions. Eventually, and especially in the second half, the Steelers offense leaned heavily on running back Le’Veon Bell toting the football and his…


Tomlin Explains Why Coates Isn’t Playing

It has served as one of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ greatest mysteries this season. An unmasked man with taped up fingers, Sammie Coates, sitting on the sideline for the past several weeks. But Mike Tomlin thinks there’s too much being made out of the story. The reasons why Coates isn’t playing…



Artie Burns’ Work Ethic Making Him Better Tackler And Player

By any account, it was a rough start to the season for Artie Burns. But there’s no denying he’s made surprisingly positive progression over the last three weeks, starting with his tackling. He’s gone from putting on an awful show against the Miami Dolphins to a reliable, physical tackler. Mike…


Steelers Injury Report: Hargrave, Finney Start Week In Concussion Protocol

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin held his weekly press conference on Tuesday and as usual, he updated the health of his team ahead of the Sunday road game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Cameron Heyward Still Contributing To Rising Defense

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been without their defensive captain—one of them, anyway—on the field for the past four weeks, since it was that long since sixth-year defensive end Cameron Heyward was placed on injured reserve. Over the span of the past four games, the Steelers defense has stepped up to…



Film Room: Steelers’ Rush Lane Integrity Critical To Defensive Success

Admittedly, this isn’t the sexiest topic to write about. But if you like the highlight reel plays, the sacks and big plays, they often stem from doing the little things. To create pressure, it all starts with discipline, rush lane integrity, and balance. Before all the drawings, the schemings, and…


Buffalo Game May Have Been Death Knell For Formal OLB Rotation

The Pittsburgh Steelers faced just 48 plays on defense, which is pretty amazing when you consider that the Bills didn’t exactly have a lot of successful short drives or chunk plays. They did have one scoring drive that took just a couple of plays, but Pittsburgh had a nearly two-to-one…


Steelers Vs Bills Positional Grades

Four weeks, four straight wins for the Pittsburgh Steelers in impressive fashion. Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills in less than ideal conditions was a big game for the Steelers, so taking care of business the way that they did was very encouraging to see. QB — D- I thought…
