Steelers May Have To Pay Up To Keep James Harrison

When the Pittsburgh Steelers re-signed James Harrison at the age of 36 to a two-year contract in 2015, they did so under very different circumstances. He was already a few weeks into retirement when they phoned him up and asked him to get off the couch and onto the field…


Will The Steelers Have Any Offseason Contract Terminations?

Even though the start of the 2017 NFL league year is a little more than two months away, it’s not too early to look ahead at a few decisions the Pittsburgh Steelers will be faced with during the early stages of it. I’ve already posted about the Steelers 2017 free…


Steelers Versus Patriots: Championship Round Week Projected Inactive List

The Pittsburgh Steelers will play the New England Patriots Sunday night in the AFC Championship game and based on the team’s Friday injury report, it looks like several players who have missed recent games are likely to return this weekend. The Steelers Friday injury report included three players listed as…


Young Defensive Nucleus Built On Past Three Drafts

When the Pittsburgh Steelers defense takes the field, they will be doing so with a unit that looks dramatically different from the one that they fielded the last time they found themselves in the AFC Championship Game, six seasons ago. After all, only three players on the Steelers’ roster on…


Steelers Punt Coverage Unit Has Undergone Several Changes Since Week 4

The Pittsburgh Steelers Wednesday injury report included some mixed news when it comes to their punt coverage team as safety Robert Golden (ankle) practiced fully while linebackers Anthony Chickillo (ankle) and Vince Williams (shoulder) both failed to practice. Assuming both Golden and Williams will be able to play Sunday in…



Depth Tested, Starters Rested Heading Into Postseason

In the days leading up to the ‘meaningless’ regular-season finale for the Pittsburgh Steelers, there was some debate among the faithful over the merits of resting starters generally, as well as many particularly starters specifically. In the end, the team ended up resting four starters on offense, another on defense,…


Steelers LB James Harrison Unsure If This Will Be His Final Season

Pittsburgh Steelers veteran outside linebacker James Harrison is ending his 14th season in the league as the team’s starter on the right side and the 38-year-old certainly isn’t playing like his age. While Harrison is unlikely to play many snaps in the Steelers Sunday regular season finale against the Cleveland…

Help Me Figure Out What Jordan Dangerfield Is Doing Here

I ask that semi-rhetorically because I think we all have a sense for what the goal is here. But, c’mon man! This has to be one of the least practical return ideas you’ll see this season. Twice on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals, Danny Smith had Jordan Dangerfield do this. Loop around…




Buffalo Game May Have Been Death Knell For Formal OLB Rotation

The Pittsburgh Steelers faced just 48 plays on defense, which is pretty amazing when you consider that the Bills didn’t exactly have a lot of successful short drives or chunk plays. They did have one scoring drive that took just a couple of plays, but Pittsburgh had a nearly two-to-one…
