Film Room: Artie Burns Struggles To Keep A Lid On Things

We’ve written how the Pittsburgh Steelers’ secondary got a little lucky throughout the season and Sunday, they finally got burned on the stat sheet. Artie Burns in particular, as has really been his whole career so far, was up and down. He had some legitimately excellent plays and is showing…


Lost Ball On Free Kick Is Biggest Special Teams Gaffe Of All

The Pittsburgh Steelers got off to a roaring start on special teams this season, including scoring their first points of the year off a blocked punt that was returned for a touchdown. The following week, they successfully defended a fake punt on a pass attempt that was batted down—both plays…


Steelers Don’t Need Reminding Who Vontaze Burfict Is

The Pittsburgh Steelers were not fortunate to be among the teams who got the opportunity to face the Cincinnati Bengals sans Vontaze Burfict, their talented but controversial inside linebacker, who was suspended for the first three games of the 2017 regular season. He also served a three-game suspension to start…

Film Room: Receivers Mix It Up In Run Game, Key In Splash Plays

The Pittsburgh Steelers had easily their best rushing attack of the season in Sunday’s victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. They were able to get beyond three yards and a cloud of dust, ripping off big run after big run. After times, the difference between those decent, 5 or 7…


Steelers Vs Chiefs Missed Tackles Report

Another week comes with another strong performance in the tackling department for the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense, which continues to improve week after week. One week after the Jacksonville Jaguars ran all over them at Heinz Field, the Steelers went on the road to face the Kansas City Chiefs and their…


Film Room: Roosevelt Nix Runs Through Chiefs

I think it’s fair to say that the most unfortunate byproduct of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ struggles in the running game this season prior to Sunday’s contest is the fact that it had essentially deprived us of highlights featuring fullback Roosevelt Nix. But that changed in Kansas City amidst an active…


Film Room: James Harrison Goes ‘Fishing’

I find it hard to blame anybody who wants beyond reason to see Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison on the field as much as possible. He is a deserving fan favorite for his dominant play in years past, including a Defensive Player of the Year campaign in 2008, and…

The Pittsburgh Steelers made a practice squad transaction on Wednesday and that’s not surprising due to tackle Marcus Gilbert re-injuring his hamstring this past Sunday.

Film Room: Steelers Running Well On Passing Downs

One of the areas in which the Pittsburgh Steelers struggled most on the offensive side of the ball during the early portions of the 2017 regular season has been establishing an effective early-downs running game, the lack of which has forced them to spend far too much time playing behind…


Tomlin: Joe Mixon ‘Appears To Be A Featured Runner Type’

While the Pittsburgh Steelers might be feeling pretty good about themselves at the moment after taking down the final unbeaten team in the NFL, they know that they can’t rest on their laurels any time soon. Their next opponent is one that is about as familiar as they get—and yet,…




JuJu Smith-Schuster Mastering The Details

James Harrison, the oldest player on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ roster, had already graduated high school by the time JuJu Smith-Schuster, the youngest player, was born. Smith-Schuster is the youngest player in the league. But that hasn’t prevented him from making an impact. Even on a team that entered the year…


Mike Tomlin Comfortable With Playing ILB L.J. Fort If Need Arises

The Pittsburgh Steelers enter Week 7 of their 2017 regular season with two inside linebackers perhaps questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals as starter Vince Williams and his backup Tyler Matakevich are both currently dealing with injuries suffered during the teams Week 6 Sunday road win over the…
