Yesterday, we walked through the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offense player-by-player, recapping how each player performed during training camp. Today, we’ll do the same for the defense and punters. Cam Heyward: One of the best at his position, there wasn’t a need to pay attention to Heyward in camp. But it was…

Steelers Film Room: Safety Vs Green Bay

One of the biggest weaknesses of the Pittsburgh Steelers defense last year, until late in the season, was their inability to pressure the quarterback consistently. A little bit of that showed up against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but against the Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh’s defense was buzzing, notching six sacks and…

Training Camp Diary: Day Eighteen

The last one. I promised myself I wouldn’t cry. I also might have had my fingers crossed when I said that.. – It was a low-key practice. Looked like the team had the option to practice in shorts, most choosing to don them instead of the pants with thigh pads….

Kozora 2015 53 Man Roster Prediction: Post Jaguars Game

As Dave Bryan, Jon Ledyard, and Matthew Marczi will do, I’ll update my Pittsburgh Steelers 53 man roster predictions. As we’ve written about, there aren’t many camp battles left for the 53. This roster won’t change a ton the rest of the way. But there are always slight variations in…

Game Rewind: Steelers vs Jaguars Breakdown

Game notes from the Pittsburgh Steelers 23-21 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. First Half – Kick return unit. Missing the players between the wedge and front five.

Training Camp Diary: Day Eleven

Welcome to Day Eleven. Last day of practice before the team’s Hall of Fame game. As I tweeted, and maybe mentioned in yesterday’s report, we’re to the point where you learn less about the players in practice. It’s really just about seeing guys compete. You know their overall skillset. Game…

Training Camp Diary: Day Ten

Day Ten of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ training camp is in the books. Still fun to watch practice but this was easily the least intense one since the team put on the pads. By my count, not including the waived/injured Rob Blanchflower or the three PUP guys, 16 players held out…

Steelers Training Camp Day 1-204

Steelers 2015 Training Camp Diary: Day Six

Day seven and the home stretch of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ six consecutive practice. Today was more physical and energetic than I anticipated following a night practice. Definitely not a boring day. Let’s hop to it. – It also unfortunately wasn’t a healthy day as several players didn’t finish practice. Ryan Shazier, Gerod Holliman, Josh Harris, Shamarko…
