Keeping Russell Wilson Contained Key For Steelers’ Run Defense

The Pittsburgh Steelers have taken pride in their run defense this season, and rightfully so after beginning a turnaround from a steady drop off in recent years. While the defense ranked relatively favorably a year ago in terms of yards per game allowed on the ground, their yards per carry…


Cam Newton, Antonio Brown Not Paid To Be Role Models

It seems as though the subject is brought up every year at some point or another, fueled usually by some type of on-field activity to which someone, often an outsider, has taken umbrage: a professional athlete has acted in a manner that is not befitting of a role model. Now…


Steelers Film Room: Arthur Moats Sack Review

The more I watch Arthur Moats play football, the less concerned I feel about the Pittsburgh Steelers 3-4 outside linebacker spots heading into the 2015 season. I know, Moats doesn’t possess the kind of athletic upside that rookie Bud Dupree brings to the table, nor does he boast the impressive resume…


There’s Only One Ben Roethlisberger

The 2015 NFL Draft is passed and for the 7th time in 10 years, a quarterback was taken first overall. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers took the controversial Florida State Seminole quarterback Jameis Winston. As we find ourselves moving towards offseason training activities (OTAs) and soon enough NFL training camps, as…


Steelers LB Jarvis Jones Needs A “Stronger” Offseason

When the Pittsburgh Steelers made Jarvis Jones the 17th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, expectations were sky high. Much like guard David DeCastro in the 2012 NFL Draft, Jones wasn’t expected to be available when the Steelers were on the clock. With the retirement of stalwart James Harrison and…

Steelers Defense Must Build Off Of Texans Turnovers

Last night on Twitter, I wrote that the Pittsburgh Steelers had scored 17 points off of turnovers against the Houston Texans, mockingly adding “also, the Steelers have turnovers tonight”. The truth is, however, that the team has forced at least one turnover now in five straight games, reaching a season-high…

By Alex Kozora In this week’s video series, I discussed the wrinkles Dick LeBeau added to the Pittsburgh Steelers’ gameplan in last Saturday’s victory over the Carolina Panthers. Today, we’ll expand on that and show you some specific fronts that LeBeau used. The first was one LeBeau showed multiple times….

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: Sean Spence

Third-year Pittsburgh Steelers inside linebacker Sean Spence makes his first career start this afternoon after overcoming what essentially turned into a two-year rehabilitation process, rehabbing the torn ligaments in his knee and hoping that the peroneal nerve behind his knee cap regenerated sufficiently enough to allow him to resume his…

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: Lawrence Timmons

Perhaps nobody was in more dire need of a rebound game for the Pittsburgh Steelers than inside linebacker Lawrence Timmons, whose missed tackles through the first two games contributed to a slow start for the defense. But he did have a much better performance last week against the Carolina Panthers,…

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: Arthur Moats

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost three starters on defense last Sunday night against the Carolina Panthers. While they may have won that battle, it’s yet to be determined if they still have the fighting force to win the war. Perhaps none of the replacement troops will play as significant a role…

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: Cameron Heyward

As was the case with many Pittsburgh Steelers defenders, fourth-year defensive end Cameron Heyward got his season off to somewhat of a slow start. In fact, he also underwhelmed through much of the preseason as well. But he played easily his best game of the season, and perhaps one of…
