Steelers Injury Report: Nothing Serious In Win Over Titans

The Pittsburgh Steelers blew out the Tennessee Titans 40-17 at home Thursday night and the team apparently was able to get through the game without suffering any serious injuries. “Had a couple of injuries in-game but none of it appeared to be serious,” Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said after…


Steelers’ Opponents Being Outscored 9-0 On Their Own Opening Drives

So here is an interesting statistic for you—and I can’t help but wonder how often this has happened, if ever—but at least through the first seven games of the 2017 regular season, the Pittsburgh Steelers are actually outscoring their opponents on said opponents’ opening drives. Let’s clarify something here. I…


Tomlin On Mitchell Low Hit On Smith: ‘He Got Tripped’

As expected, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was asked during his weekly Tuesday press conference to comment on the low hit by safety Mike Mitchell on Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith late in the third quarter of Sunday’s Week 6 game at Arrowhead Stadium. “My view is what…


Film Room: Anthony Chickillo’s Pass Rush Vs Bears

In spite of the fact that he has played a tremendous amount of snaps this season, somehow we have not yet done up a film room taking a look at third-year outside linebacker Anthony Chickillo, who currently leads the Pittsburgh Steelers with three sacks, notching the tie-breaking sack on Sunday…



Tomlin Says Playing James Harrison Wouldn’t Have Fixed Run Defense Woes

It took 26 minutes until Mike Tomlin got a football question, an afternoon that was focused on mostly anything but the game. But the final question he fielded from reporters revolved around a question many Pittsburgh Steelers’ fans wondering after Sunday’s loss. Where was James Harrison? Ultimately, Tomlin said having…


James Harrison On Setting The Edge: ‘I Could Do That When I’m 60’

With Pittsburgh Steelers rookie linebacker T.J. Watt sidelined for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears with a groin injury, Anthony Chickillo not only started in his place on the right side of the defense, he also played all but three snaps. Chickllio’s heavy usage resulted in veteran outside linebacker James…


James Harrison Sidelined While Steelers Ride The Hot Hand

For the first time in a long time, James Harrison didn’t play a single snap in Sunday’s win over the Minnesota Vikings, even with T.J. Watt missing most of the game. Instead, the team used Anthony Chickillo and Bud Dupree almost exclusively. But with the positive results those two have…


Injuries Providing Opportunities For Anthony Chickillo

Every indication through the first two weeks of the season firmly establishes Pittsburgh Steelers third-year outside linebacker Anthony Chickillo as the team’s top backup at both the left and right positions behind starters Bud Dupree and T.J.

Steelers Vs Vikings Win/Loss Scenarios

Back at it on gameday, breaking down what the Pittsburgh Steelers have to do to win (or lose) in today’s game against the Minnesota Vikings. My always unreliable prediction at the bottom. The Steelers Will Win If… 1. They control the Vikings’ defensive line. I wanted to be more specific…


Two Dogs, One Stick For Special Teams Battles

The Pittsburgh Steelers curiously left off a special teams captain for the first time in several years. That may have been a hint that Robert Golden’s roster spot isn’t entirely safe, though for the moment, he’s rock solid, but probably had more to do with the team opening competition. Per…


Steelers Vs Browns Missed Tackles Report

Coming off of a 21-18 win Sunday on the road at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, we’re back into the full swing of things here at Steelers Depot. If you’ve been following along since the end of the game Sunday, we’ve had some great content go up on the site for…




Starting Nod Not Changing Steelers’ Special Teams Roles

It was assumed we wouldn’t be seeing much of Vince Williams on special teams this year. You could assume the same about T.J. Watt, especially if you knew that he was going to play practically every snap on defense. Or even Anthony Chickillo once he got the nod for an…
