Haley Explains Why Hubbard Is Used Frequently As An Extra Blocker

Even though he’s not a starter, Pittsburgh Steelers tackle Chris Hubbard still manages to see playing time on offense on a weekly basis as the former undrafted free agent has been used frequently as an extra lineman/blocking tight end. During his weekly interview on Steelers Nation Radio, Steelers offensive coordinator…

What James Harrison Told Tomlin After His Super Bowl Score

One of my favorite interviews each week is the gameday transcript of Steelers.com Bob Labriola’s conversation with Mike Tomlin. At a press conference, Tomlin is typically reserved, hyper-cliched, and frankly, kinda boring. But these interviews give a lot more interesting feedback. Much of the conversation revolved around James Harrison, four…

Elias Explains Decision To Not Give James Harrison A Half A Sack

When the Pittsburgh Steelers defense sacked Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott in the third quarter of Sunday’s loss, I initially thought that linebacker James Harrison was going to be credited with a half a sack on the play and thus tie Jason Gildon for the all-time franchise sack record. That…

Todd Haley Laments Missed Opportunities Vs Cowboys

And yes, I am stealing “laments” from Matthew Marczi, a man who is much smarter than I. Technically, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ matched their weekly goal. They scored 30 points for the first time in a month. But looking beyond those basic expectations, Todd Haley knows it could’ve been a lot…

Danny Smith Guarantees Boswell’s Kick Would’ve Worked

Could’ve, would’ve, should’ve. That is basically how Danny Smith summed up Chris Boswell’s failed rabona onside kick. He went into more detail and explained the rational in an intelligent manner but might have gotten carried away with such a guarantee. Speaking with Bob Labriola on this week’s Coordinator’s Corner, Smith said…

Haley Discusses Ravens’ Week Call-Sheet Preparation, Jones’ Play Against Patriots

Entering Thursday, there’s still a decent chance that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will start Sunday in the team’s road game against the Baltimore Ravens. With that said, Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley has become quite accustomed to preparing a backup to start in place of an injured Roethlisberger over…

Danny Smith Gushes About Darrius Heyward-Bey

Your weekly quota of Danny Smith articles from me. And this week, sitting down with Bob Labriola like usual, Smith positively gushed about Darrius Heyward-Bey and what makes him such a great special teamer. Although DHB has had an emerging role as a wide receiver, now elevated above Markus Wheaton…

Danny Smith Pleased With Special Teams’ Field Goal Block

Yes, this is my weekly quota of Danny Smith articles. Sunday’s loss to the Miami Dolphins was pretty terrible all around but one bright spot came on special teams. Daniel McCullers briefly kept the Steelers in the game with a third quarter field goal block. It kept Miami ahead by…

Tyler Matakevich Praised For High Football IQ

He’s the man giving us a glimmer of hope during some dark times. The little bit of good in an otherwise bad situation. The man in red. Tyler Matakevich is the Pittsburgh Steelers’ version of Ken Bone. One of the few bright moments from their loss to the Miami Dolphins’…

Butler And Haley Agree: Do Your Job

It’s a phrased they’ve used before but it’s only fitting to hear both coordinators preach “do your job” in the week they face off against Bill Belichick, who has famously coined the term. Keith Butler and Todd Haley both dropped that phrase today, a recognition that when games start to…
