Haley Believes This Year’s Running Back Depth Better Than 2014

Same story, different year. The Pittsburgh Steelers find themselves potentially starting an unheralded running back in their Wild Card matchup. Last year, it was Ben Tate for Le’Veon Bell. This year, Fitzgerald Toussaint for DeAngelo Williams. And though on the surface the situations are disappointingly similar, Todd Haley is much…

Jordan Todman Not To Be Overlooked In Steelers Backfield

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed Jordan Todman to the 53-man roster the day after final cuts were made, when he was let go by the Panthers, who already had a deep backfield. He served as the backup to DeAngelo Williams for the first two games of the season while Le’Veon Bell…

The NFL is a grinding 16-game schedule played out over 17 weeks. 12 of the league’s 32 teams make the playoffs at the end of the regular season. If you accomplish what you need to over a three month stretch sure to be filled with injuries and other challenges, you’re…

Steelers Have Likely Learned From Ben Tate Experience Last Year

It’s still early, but, while the Pittsburgh Steelers are fortunate to have advanced to the playoffs, they are facing the very real possibility of entering the postseason wounded severely at the tailback position, losing their acting starting running back in the regular season finale. Last year, Le’Veon Bell suffered a…

DeAngelo Williams The Running Back Pittsburgh Needed

Two years. Two running back free agent signings. Two completely different results. There are a lot pleasant surprises from the Pittsburgh Steelers already. Bud Dupree is playing more and at a higher level than almost anyone anticipated. Darrius Heyward-Bey is making splash plays. Twitter is still standing after the Brandon…

Jordan Todman Should Have Coaches’ Trust By Week Two

After failing to identify an appropriate backup running back for the first two games of the regular season to work behind DeAngelo Williams, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ initial 53-man roster included just two running backs—the aforementioned Williams, and second-year Dri Archer, who is as much wide receiver as he is a…

Johnson’s Ascension To Backup RB A Curious Path

I once told Will Johnson to make Mike Tomlin give him the ball more. I said that because I thought I was funny. Mainly because I’m stupid. He smirked and kept his head down, signing the football I brought for the Steelers vs Teachers basketball game. It’s nice to see…

Steelers Could Use Another Running Back Before Camp

As we grow ever so closer to the kickoff of training camp at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, there are several key questions that although may not bat an eyelash now, could prove crucial later in the season. Although the team’s major free agent signing, if any could be considered…

Steelers Film Room: Ryan Shazier Vs Run

There will be several Pittsburgh Steelers under the microscope in 2015, particularly on the defensive side of the football. Ryan Shazier is among that group, a rookie year marred by injury that never let us fully see the type of player he could become. Like any second year player, you’re…

Steelers’ Offense Losing Security Blanket In Bell

Every Pittsburgh Steelers fan has an uneasy, though perhaps subconscious, feeling they’re carrying during the offseason. Having to face the unfortunate reality of being without Le’Veon Bell for the first three weeks of the regular season, pending appeal. He’ll look great in camp, bust off a big run in the preseason….

Josh Harris Doesn’t Plan To Waste Any More Opportunities

Pittsburgh Steelers first-year running back Josh Harris began the 2014 league year without a team, having gone unsigned following the 2014 NFL Draft, but he finished the season being given the most carries for the team during their postseason appearance. When looking back at Harris’ timeline, however, there is certainly…

Young Steelers RBs Must Step Up To Back DeAngelo Williams

As we continue to wait for word on Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell’s appeal of his three-game suspension and whether or not that might be reduced, we are left to assume that the team will be without him for that duration, during which DeAngelo Williams, the team’s signature free…
