Artie Burns’ Sunday Performance Considered ‘Spotty’

It was a rough game for the entire Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense so it’s unfair to point out any singular player but Mike Tomlin was asked specifically about Artie Burns’ performance. Tomlin called it “spotty,” a rare moment of some non-praise for a player. “I thought it was spotty,” he said…



Backups Proving Starter-Capable For Pittsburgh

The past two weeks have presented some unique challenges for the Pittsburgh Steelers. For starters, they had to take on the Kansas City Chiefs, a team that has been the Achilles heel for Tomlin’s Steelers, and also the New York Jets, a capable offense with a stout front four on…

Rookie Minicamps Proving Fruitful For Latest Roster Additions

Just an obvious side note here. No practice report today because of the washout. It poured and I mean, poured. As if every rain drop on earth collecting over St. Vincent College. So for the first time in forever, the practice was moved to the indoor gymnasium. That’s only for the…

Somehow, a single line in a rap has given us the biggest Steelers’ summer news story. There’s been a ton of talk about Le’Veon Bell’s next contract after he rapped this line in his new song, “Focus.” “I’m at the top and if not I’m the closest, I’ma need 15…
