A Look Back At Sammie Coates’ 200-Yard Performance Against Alabama

During a recent interview on steelers.com, Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver Sammie Coates said that his 206-yard performance against Alabama last season is currently his proudest football moment/memory of his young career. With that being noted, I thought we’d go back at look at his performance in that game. For…

Steelers Throwback Thursday: James Harrison’s First Career Sack

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison has recorded 71.5 sacks during his long career and on this Throwback Thursday, I thought we would take a trip back to 2004 once again and take a look at his very first quarterback takedown in the NFL. During the Week 10 games against the…

Steelers All-22: Utilizing Ryan Shazier’s Strengths, Minimizing Weaknesses

Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2014 first round draftee Ryan Shazier had high expectations heading into last season, but injuries and rookie mistakes marred his initial NFL campaign. Shazier himself has referred to the past year as “kinda disappointing”, but an examination of his tape tells a more detailed story. Today we’ll review…

Steelers Film Room: Anthony Chickillo, Run Defender

Yesterday we examined Pittsburgh Steelers sixth rounder Anthony Chickillo as a pass rusher, displaying his struggles to win consistently in that area. With Pittsburgh looking to fit the 6-3, 270-pound defensive lineman into an outside linebacker role, Chickillo’s lack of movement skills, athleticism, and premier pass-rushing traits could expose him…

Steelers Film Room: Anthony Chickillo, Pass Rusher

Since Anthony Chickillo’s selection in the 6th round of the 2015 NFL Draft two months ago, there has been much talk amongst the Pittsburgh Steelers faithful about what position the former Miami defensive lineman should play in the NFL. I’ve engaged in much of that discussion, feeling strongly that Chickillo…

Steelers Throwback Thursday: Ben Roethlisberger’s 2004 NFL Debut

Now that the NFL Network has revealed the 2015 ranking for Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in their annual Top 100 list, I figured it would be a great time to feature him in our weekly Throwback Thursday post. Today, we will travel back in time to Roethlisberger’s 2004 rookie…

Steelers Film Room: Re-Scouting Shamarko Thomas

Asking any NFL player to fill the shoes of Troy Polamalu is a hefty task, but requiring those responsibilities of a third-year player who saw just three defensive snaps last season makes the request seem even more monumental. Nevertheless that is what the Pittsburgh Steelers will ask of Shamarko Thomas…

Steelers Throwback Thursday: Joey Porter’s Last Career Sack

Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebackers coach Joey Porter recorded 60 sacks during his eight seasons in the Steel City. After he was released by the Steelers in 2007, he went on to play three years with the Miami Dolphins and another two with the Arizona Cardinals, and he registered another 38…

Steelers Film Room: Arthur Moats Sack Review

The more I watch Arthur Moats play football, the less concerned I feel about the Pittsburgh Steelers 3-4 outside linebacker spots heading into the 2015 season. I know, Moats doesn’t possess the kind of athletic upside that rookie Bud Dupree brings to the table, nor does he boast the impressive resume…

Steelers Film Room: Examining Martavis Bryant’s Rookie Season Drops

Prior to the Pittsburgh Steelers drafting him in the fourth-round of the 2014 NFL Draft out of Clemson, one of the knocks on wide receiver Martavis Bryant was his inconsistent hands that resulted in him either double-catching the football or outright dropping it. While Bryant was charged with a handful…

Let’s start your weekend off right by getting back into some All-22 film. We’re not going to use the whiteboard today. Instead, we’re going to delve into a specific technique that was partially born out of a brief discussion in the comments of our last All-22 article. In it, we…
