NFL Top 1000: What/Where Steelers Made The List

A huge undertaking every year, a large contingent of people were brought on to compile Bleacher Report’s NFL 1000, grading the top 1000 players in the league. It’s always a little unconventional, controversial, but a labor of love with some really smart people sending in their grades. Unveiled yesterday, they…

Steelers’ Roster Pedigree Heavy At Top And Bottom

It’s been a few days now since the roster has been trimmed and tweaked, and so we can probably assume that at least this is the 53-man roster that the Pittsburgh Steelers will carry into the season opener. With that in mind, I wanted to do a bit of analysis…

Dangerfield Among Young DBs Who Must Pick Up ST Slack

The Pittsburgh Steelers roster did right by their teammate in naming fifth-year safety Robert Golden their special-teams captain for the third year in a row. It was an honor that Golden said that he did not expect to receive this year because his responsibilities on special teams are expected to…

4WR Sets Should Be Viable Solution For Early Short-Handed Offense

The Pittsburgh Steelers ran 235 plays of offense during the preseason, penalty non-plays included. On not a single one of them did they line up with four wide receivers on the field. And yet I would expect that we will see some of that, perhaps even somewhat significantly, this season,…

Steelers’ Special Teams Not As Dire As First Glance

I gotta admit, I may have gone a little bit overboard here. Sometimes, it’s good to be sorta looney. Clearly, with the injuries the Pittsburgh Steelers have dealt with towards the bottom of the 53, the special teams outlook looks questionable. Given the high amount of turnover they were already…

Sammie Coates Makes Few Opportunities Count Vs Saints

When the Pittsburgh Steelers’ ‘first-team’ offense took the field for the first time this year, it may have been taking as a troubling sign for Sammie Coates, the second-year wide receiver who was drafted in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft, and played very sparsely his rookie season….

Eli Rogers Practice Habits Basis For Successful Preseason

It’s been an tough-to-watch preseason for the Pittsburgh Steelers offense. But the one consistently bright spot has been Eli Rogers, coming off a four catch, 39 yard performance. He attributes that success to practice habits and a simple message instilled by the coaching staff. “Coach Todd always says, it’s just…

Charting Notes From The Steelers Preseason Opener Against Lions

Before we start heavily previewing the Pittsburgh Steelers second preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles, I thought I would pass along a few notes that stuck out to me from our charting of the team’s Friday night loss to the Detroit Lions. According to our game charting, the Lions only brought…

Steelers Spin: Analysis Of Preseason Week One

The Pittsburgh Steelers launched their 2016 Super Bowl ambitions with a 17-30 preseason thud to the Detroit Lions. Yes. It’s just the first preseason game. No. There’s no reason to panic. Not by any means. But, dang, that was disappointing. With QB Ben Roethlisberger, WR Antonio Brown and RB Le’Veon…


Jerald Hawkins

Steelers Film Room: Jerald Hawkins Vs Lions

The Pittsburgh Steelers bolstered their offensive line depth in the 2016 NFL Draft with the addition of tackle Jerald Hawkins in the fourth round. While he is expected to apprentice as the team’s fourth tackle as a rookie, likely inactive on game day, they see a future in him as…
