Dupree’s Injury Forces Steelers To Return To Platoon At OLB

Earlier in the offseason, maybe around the start of training camp, Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Keith Butler talked about wanting to move away from the platooning at the outside linebacker position that they started and relied upon during the 2015 season, basically out of necessity, since there was no individual…


NFL Top 1000: What/Where Steelers Made The List

A huge undertaking every year, a large contingent of people were brought on to compile Bleacher Report’s NFL 1000, grading the top 1000 players in the league. It’s always a little unconventional, controversial, but a labor of love with some really smart people sending in their grades. Unveiled yesterday, they…


Steelers’ Roster Pedigree Heavy At Top And Bottom

It’s been a few days now since the roster has been trimmed and tweaked, and so we can probably assume that at least this is the 53-man roster that the Pittsburgh Steelers will carry into the season opener. With that in mind, I wanted to do a bit of analysis…

Tomlin: Chickillo Will Be Part Of Linebacker Rotation

Next man up. That’s the standard. The creed. Heck, I bet it’ll be plastered on a blimp and fly over Heinz Field each week. With the loss of Bud Dupree, that next man is Anthony Chickillo. At today’s press conference, Mike Tomlin made it clear Chickillo will be involved in…

Now that the Pittsburgh Steelers have closed out their 2016 preseason, it’s time for me to release my final 53-man roster prediction. Please note that this prediction has two sections. The top section is what I predict the 53-man roster to look like Saturday evening right after 4 p.m. deadline….


Steelers’ Special Teams Not As Dire As First Glance

I gotta admit, I may have gone a little bit overboard here. Sometimes, it’s good to be sorta looney. Clearly, with the injuries the Pittsburgh Steelers have dealt with towards the bottom of the 53, the special teams outlook looks questionable. Given the high amount of turnover they were already…

Steelers Vs Panthers Winners And Losers

Preseason over. On to Washington. These aren’t in any order, by the way. So don’t yell at me. WINNERS 1. Artie Burns – It was just one game, and against strictly backups no less, but an encouraging initial showing. He closed quickly on the football, threw his body around, and…
