John Mitchell Talks Stephon Tuitt, Daniel McCullers

Film Room: Keith Butler’s Box Calls

Boxes. They’re great things. They hold Christmas gifts, pizza, engagement rings. Defensive coordinators have boxes too. And they’re a great way to beat bunch concepts. The rules are simple. I learned them from the great Matt Bowen when he still wrote for National Football Post. Four defenders versus three receivers….

Keith Butler, Steelers Need To Play A Consistent 11 In 2016

Keith Butler’s first season at the defensive coordinator helm was largely a success. The Steelers’ run defense improved, their red zone play stellar, and as a team, they were able to generate pressure and sacks. Room for improvement just like anyone else but overall, it was solid. There are several…
