For the third offseason in a row, welcome back to Blast From the Past. The random, oh yeah, remember him? players in recent Pittsburgh Steelers’ history. Some made an impact to the team, others cut early and never heard from again. But they all produce some level of nostalgia. It has been a looong…


Four Potential Replacements For Daniel McCullers

It is June 21st and I’ll admit it, there isn’t much going on right now. Wanted to dive into some game tape from last year but NFL Game Pass is overhauling their system (and making it worse, sadly). For now, that’s a bit on the backburner. Switching gears, I wanted…


One Step To Take: DE Johnny Maxey

Bringing back a s series I had a lot of fun exploring last offseason. Every player wants to improve, to elevate his game in all areas from one season to the next. Understanding that, we’re going to isolate just one area, one faction of a player’s game. The biggest area…

2017 Fox Sports Four Round Mock: Steelers Go CB in First Round

If you listened to today’s The Terrible Podcast, I joked the big media is listening to Dave Bryan on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ selections. Now, I’m pretty convinced.

Keith Butler Picked Wrong Time For Right Approach To Brady

I’ve finally been able to start to sift through our charting from the AFC Title loss. It’s always something we lean on for creating some quantifiable clarity for how the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense functioned under Keith Butler. Shortly after the game, Dave Bryan had a couple of solid tweets about…


Film Room: B.J. Finney Vs Bills

For the second time this season, the Pittsburgh Steelers called upon the services of first-year offensive lineman B.J. Finney in order to fill in for Ramon Foster at the left guard position.

WR Sammy Watkins was upgraded from a DNP yesterday to a limited participant today. He seems on track to play against the Steelers. QB Tyrod Taylor and CB Ronald Darby were listed…



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…


The Terrible Vlogcast: Breaking Down Ryan Fitzpatrick’s INTs

Always trying to add a new element into the Depot rolodex. You’ve seen Dave and I individually do some tape breakdowns but this time, we’ve teamed up to break down all ten of Ryan Fitzpatrick’s interceptions this season. Are they all his fault or are there other mitigating factors leading…
