Carnell Lake Says Joe Haden Capable Of Taking Away Half The Field

Consider Carnell Lake a happy man. Over the last two years, the Pittsburgh Steelers have been hell-on-wheels in adding to their secondary. Drafting Artie Burns and Sean Davis. Trading for J.J. Wilcox. And signing Joe Haden, who might have been the biggest short-term impact of them all. In a rare…


Stats Of The Weird: Steelers Vs Lions

Let’s get weird. – First, the box score. The 20-15 Pittsburgh Steelers win is the first such score in franchise history, win or lose. The last score league wide took place December 23rd, 2001. – JuJu Smith-Schuster finished the game with 193 yards. That’s the second most by a Steelers’…



Film Room: Artie Burns A Work In Progress

Perhaps I am mistaken, but it doesn’t seem to me as though we have spent a whole lot of time taking a look at Artie Burns this year. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ second-year cornerback has been part of a secondary that has allowed fewer passing yards in the league, measured by…


Steelers Vs. Bengals Week 7 Key Matchups

The Pittsburgh Steelers (4-2) are back at home for their first matchup of the year against the Cincinnati Bengals (2-3). Currently in sole possession for first place in the AFC North, Pittsburgh comes into Heinz Field riding a massive victory last week against Kansas City. The defense was flawless, letting…


Steelers Have No Plans To Shadow Receivers This Season

In spite of the fact that both of them are theoretically capable of doing it, the Pittsburgh Steelers have no intention of using either of their starting cornerbacks to shadow and particular wider receiver. Not even A.J. Green, who is arguably the toughest assignment that either of them will have…


Film Room: Artie Burns Struggles To Keep A Lid On Things

We’ve written how the Pittsburgh Steelers’ secondary got a little lucky throughout the season and Sunday, they finally got burned on the stat sheet. Artie Burns in particular, as has really been his whole career so far, was up and down. He had some legitimately excellent plays and is showing…


Steelers Answer Call To Respond In Big Win Over Chiefs

This time a week ago was a low point of the 2017 Pittsburgh Steelers’ season. An ugly, blowout loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars that put Pittsburgh at 3-2. Fast forward to today and it’s nearly a 180 degree turn. Winning really is the cure for all ills, especially when those…


Artie Burns Bowing Out Against The Run

Had a reader/tweeter ask a good question today. How many tackles does Artie Burns have against the run? The answer? Zero. That’s according to the always-handy Pro Football Reference’s Game Play finder. Of the 162 tackles the Pittsburgh Steelers have against the run this year, Burns hasn’t been involved in any of…



Film Room: Artie Burns Still Growing

When looking upon the early beginnings of Artie Burns’ second season in the NFL, his body of work through three games with the Pittsburgh Steelers is not without blemish, but there is also evident growth, both in the mental and physical aspects of the game. The former first-round pick is…



Tomlin, Steelers Bungling Up Kick Return Situation

There are plenty of unfair, or at least debatable, criticisms of Mike Tomlin. Not being a good X’s and O’s guy (that one has always been pretty dumb), having unprepared teams, yadda yadda. One underrated, but certainly valid, criticism though is the mess the team has made time and time…


Tomlin Still Sorting Through Returner Options Ahead Of Opener

The Pittsburgh Steelers first regular season depth chart of 2017 was released on Tuesday and if you’re like me, you were probably surprised to see rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster listed on it as the team’s top kickoff returner. In fact, it was also somewhat surprising to see cornerback Artie…


Steelers Secondary Could Man Up Against Colts

The main attraction of the third preseason game for most people is the fact that it means that all or most of the team’s starters are going to be playing in the game, and of those that do, the majority of them are probably going to see a significant amount…
