Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: Kelvin Beachum

The Pittsburgh Steelers are counting on third-year tackle Kelvin Beachum to man the blind side on the offensive line this season after playing the position for 11 games in 2013. Mike Adams was supposed to be the left tackle a year ago, but it didn’t take the team long to realize they would be better […]

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: Wesley Johnson Run Blocking

Earlier this week, I broke down some examples of the struggles of Pittsburgh Steelers rookie offensive lineman Wesley Johnson in pass protection during the preseason finale against the Carolina Panthers. Johnson, primarily a tackle in college with a smattering of experience at all other positions on the line, was drafted in the fifth round because […]

Steelers vs Panthers Film Room: Howard Jones

By Alex Kozora An evaluation of the play of Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker Howard Jones against the Carolina Panthers. THE GOOD 1. 1st and 10, 8:56 4th. Holds the point of attack, partially due to getting his arms extended. Shows strength versus the tight end, too. It’s not flashy but still a positive play. 2. 1st and 10, 6:09 […]

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: Steve McLendon

Pittsburgh Steelers nose tackle Steve McLendon is hopeful of playing more like a true nose tackle this season after playing last year underweight, and consequently leaving himself prone to injury while failing to draw enough attention to himself to free up the linebackers. Reviews thus far have been mixed. Overall, he has played well within […]

Steelers vs Panthers Film Room: David DeCastro

By Alex Kozora An evaluation of the play of Pittsburgh Steelers guard David DeCastro against the Carolina Panthers. THE GOOD 1. 2nd and 4, 8:20 1st. DeCastro seals the left defensive tackle to help create a lane for Will Johnson. Sets his hips, and turns the tackle. Really like the arm extension, hand placement, and strength to push and stick […]

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: Ryan Shazier

While the final preseason game is typically no more than a brief joyride for most starters, the Pittsburgh Steelers sent a few of their young starters on defense on a bit more of a cruise last week against the Carolina Panthers. Among those was Ryan Shazier, who will be the first rookie to start a […]

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: Defensive Third Down Success

Earlier this week, we took a look at some examples of the Pittsburgh Steelers defense facing third-down situations in the preseason finale against the Carolina Panthers. The Steelers were in the bottom third of the league a year ago in stopping opposing offenses on third down, so it’s clearly an area for improvement this year. […]

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: Lawrence Timmons

Pittsburgh Steelers inside linebacker Lawrence Timmons only played on the defense’s opening possession, but it was a long, sustained drive that at one point seemed to have been stopped by Timmons on fourth and one. The officials ruled on the field that Carolina Panthers fullback Mike Tolbert’s forward momentum gained two yards on the play, […]

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: Antwon Blake

Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Antwon Blake cemented his place on this team last year with his special teams work, but in his second year with the organization, he plans to get himself on the field with the rest of the defense. Blake figures to be battling with Brice McCain as the fourth cornerback on the depth […]

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: DHB And Justin Brown Blocking

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 Film Room: Chris Hubbard Against The Panthers

By Alex Kozora Another bubble player – and arguably the biggest surprise – to make the Pittsburgh Steelers’ opening 53 man roster was guard Chris Hubbard. We’ll evaluate his performance from Thursday night’s preseason finale against the Carolina Panthers. THE GOOD 1. 1st and 10, 1:54 2nd. Shows proper hand placement along with the ability […]

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: Jarvis Jones

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

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: Brett Keisel

The Pittsburgh Steelers released their first official depth chart of the season yesterday, and it has Brett Keisel listed as the backup right defensive end. The Steelers still list Cameron Heyward as starting on the left side, rather than the right side, but I don’t expect that to be the case. He should be on […]

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: Defensive Third Down Struggles

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. Last year, the Steelers allowed 91 of the 230 third downs that […]

Steelers Film Room: Michael Palmer Against The Panthers

By Alex Kozora Since he was one of the bubble players who landed on the Pittsburgh Steelers initial 53 man roster, here’s a breakdown of tight end Michael Palmer’s performance against the Carolina Panthers. THE GOOD 1. 1st and 10, 9:16 1st. First snap of the game for the offense. Palmer lined up as the lone […]

Second Half – Josh Harris knocked aside in pass protection. – Veteran play by Darrius Heyward-Bey on this run block. Safety walks down into the box at the last second so DHB cracks […]

First Half – First team kick coverage unit consisted of backup. Shouldn’t put much stock into it but we’ll note it anyway. The group L-R. Isaiah Green, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Josh […]

Steelers Film Room: T Kelvin Beachum Against The Eagles

By Alex Kozora A breakdown of the play of Pittsburgh Steelers left tackle Kelvin Beachum against the Philadelphia Eagles last Thursday night. THE GOOD 1. 3rd and 6, 11:51 1st. Beachum’s punch is too poor and too high, closer to the helmet of defensive end Brandon Graham. It looks like Graham is going to be able to slip past and hit the edge. But […]

Steelers Film Room: Rookie TE Rob Blanchflower Against The Eagles

By Alex Kozora A breakdown of the play of Pittsburgh Steelers rookie tight end Rob Blanchflower against the Philadelphia Eagles last Thursday night. THE GOOD 1. 3rd and 7, 13:23 4th. He releases late on his route but the area to focus on here is his chip. Rookie defensive lineman Taylor Hart loops around on a stunt and Blanchflower […]

Steelers vs Eagles Film Review: Martavis Bryant

Although the Pittsburgh Steelers aren’t necessarily counting on rookie receiver Martavis Bryant to become an integral part of the offense in his first year, Ben Roethlisberger and the rest of the offense would certainly like to see him force his way into the equation. His performances thus far in the first three preseason games have […]

Steelers vs Eagles Film Review: Wesley Johnson

For the second game in a row, Pittsburgh Steelers rookie offensive lineman Wesley Johnson logged significant time at center, and once again, he acquitted himself well, played above the line, and undoubtedly inspired another cliché or two in the process. It’s not that Johnson is vying for a starting job or anything of that nature, […]

Steelers vs Eagles Film Review: Ben Roethlisberger Mistakes

In the first two preseason games, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was not asked to carry out many difficult throws, but he was proficient. In his four drives, he completed nine of 13 passes for 174 yards and two touchdowns while avoiding sacks. The offense scored 17 points on those four drives. Against the Philadelphia […]

Steelers Film Room: New Defensive Looks Against Eagles

By Alex Kozora With Thursday being the Pittsburgh Steelers dress rehearsal, the defense became more complex than usual. Factor in a Philadelphia Eagles exotic offense and it forced the Steelers to show a lot of new or rare looks. We’ll break down some of these below. Things to file away for during the year. 1. […]

Steelers vs Eagles Film Review: Heath Miller

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had the luxury of tight end Heath Miller’s services for nine full seasons now, with 2014 being his tenth. Although he has only been named to a pair of Pro Bowls during that time, his value to the team has gone far beyond mere accolades. Miller is an increasingly rare breed […]

Steelers vs Eagles Film Review: David DeCastro

Among the more consistent performers this preseason for the Pittsburgh Steelers has been right guard David DeCastro, the team’s first-round draft pick from 2012. The right side of the offensive line as a whole, in fact, has been among the few highlights for the Steelers during the preseason. DeCastro at times flashed hints of dominance […]
