Steelers Film Room: LeSean McCoy Touchdown Part Of Eagles Packaged Plays

When Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has his offense firing on all cylinders, it really is fun to watch. Kelly is a master of doing a lot out of one formation with very interchangeable personnel. Packaged plays. Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Eagles first touchdown to running back LeSean McCoy was not […]

When the Pittsburgh Steelers released their 53-man roster for the first time, it raised some eyebrows, offering surprises about whom they chose to cut, whom they chose to keep, and how many players at certain positions made the team.

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: DHB And Justin Brown Blocking

03 September 2014

Under normal circumstances, it’s probably pretty unlikely that the Pittsburgh Steelers would carry six wide receivers on their 53-man roster. The last time they’d done so was when Arnaz Battle was signed to be a lead special teams player. If I’m not mistaken, he never even played on offense during the regular season. But the […]

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: Jarvis Jones

02 September 2014

It doesn’t seem likely that Jarvis Jones will be able to silence his critics until he starts racking up the sacks. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2013 first-round draft pick got off to a good start in the opening preseason game by recording a sack, but he, like most of the team, suffered a poor showing in […]

Tackle Reps May Be Hard To Come By For Wesley Johnson

02 September 2014

It almost appears that the Pittsburgh Steelers are sending rookie Wesley Johnson mixed signals. When you look at the 53-man roster, the logical conclusion would have to be that his primary responsibility would be as a tackle, because reserve linemen Cody Wallace and Chris Hubbard are not end players. Guy Whimper had been running as […]

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: Defensive Third Down Struggles

02 September 2014

One of the biggest issues that haunted the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense a year ago—other than lack of a pass rush, the inability to create turnovers, and giving up an inordinate number of big plays, of course—was getting off the field on third downs.
