Tackle Reps May Be Hard To Come By For Wesley Johnson

It almost appears that the Pittsburgh Steelers are sending rookie Wesley Johnson mixed signals. When you look at the 53-man roster, the logical conclusion would have to be that his primary responsibility would be as a tackle, because reserve linemen Cody Wallace and Chris Hubbard are not end players. Guy Whimper had been running as […]

Steelers Roster Moves Suggest Positional Targets For Waiver Upgrades

The Pittsburgh Steelers certainly made some interesting decisions with their 53-man roster yesterday, but as recent history suggests, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the team is finished assembling the roster for this season. Last year, for example, the Steelers signed center Cody Wallace and punter Zoltan Mesko off waivers, and released John Malecki and Drew […]

Wesley Johnson Must Now Center In On Playing Tackle

When the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Kelvin Beachum in the seventh round of the 2012 NFL Draft, they were getting a left tackle that they believed, initially, would be best suited to kick inside, but that would eventually be able to play every position. Beachum worked all along the offensive line barring the center position as […]

Steelers Initial Final 53 Both Keeps And Breaks With Traditions

The Pittsburgh Steelers trimmed their roster to 53 players today, with some surprising cuts among them. The team remained orthodox in some ways, such as keeping three quarterbacks, while breaking with tradition in others by keeping only three outside linebackers or going with less-tenured players over veterans. I happened to have flipped the wrong way […]

Steelers vs Panthers – First Half Notes And Observations

Below are my notes and observations for the first half of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ preseason finale against the Carolina Panthers: Throughout the entire preseason, Ben Roethlisberger has been the sole team captain.

UPDATED – Bryan: Steelers 2014 53 Man Roster Prediction – Final Edition

UPDATED: Being as the team has yet to make any moves outside of placing Jordan Zumwalt on injured reserve, which I predicted, and claiming cornerback B.W. Webb off of waivers, I feel like I deserve a mulligan. All of my changes are in red and it really just involves the addition of Webb and releasing […]

Marczi: Steelers 53-Man Roster Prediction – Final Edition

The Pittsburgh Steelers have completed their slate of preseason games, and in fact will be trimming their roster down to 53 players later today. They signed a late addition in the recently released B.W.

David Paulson Hasn’t Done Enough To Lose

The Pittsburgh Steelers gave veteran tight end Michael Palmer the opportunity to start last night against the Carolina Panthers, and it almost seems as though everybody lost sight of him once he threw a strong lead block on the end around to Markus Wheaton for 15 yards that they ran to open the game.

Steelers vs Panthers – What I’m Watching For On Offense

The Pittsburgh Steelers were embarrassed last week in their 31-21 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, what was supposed to be a dress rehearsal for the regular season.

Steelers vs Eagles Film Review: Wesley Johnson

For the second game in a row, Pittsburgh Steelers rookie offensive lineman Wesley Johnson logged significant time at center, and once again, he acquitted himself well, played above the line, and undoubtedly inspired another cliché or two in the process. It’s not that Johnson is vying for a starting job or anything of that nature, […]

Entering the 2013 season, the Pittsburgh Steelers weren’t really sure if they had a backup center after they allowed Doug Legursky to leave in free agency.
