Training Camp Diary: Day Eighteen

The last one. I promised myself I wouldn’t cry. I also might have had my fingers crossed when I said that.. – It was a low-key practice. Looked like the team had the option to practice in shorts, most choosing to don them instead of the pants with thigh pads….

Now that the Pittsburgh Steelers have another preseason game behind them, it’s time for another 53 man roster prediction. This time around my prediction hasn’t changed much as I only felt it necessary to make one adjustment on my 53 and two more on my practice squad. Feel free to chime in…

Kozora 2015 53 Man Roster Prediction: Post Jaguars Game

As Dave Bryan, Jon Ledyard, and Matthew Marczi will do, I’ll update my Pittsburgh Steelers 53 man roster predictions. As we’ve written about, there aren’t many camp battles left for the 53. This roster won’t change a ton the rest of the way. But there are always slight variations in…

Steelers Vs Jaguars First Half Notes And Observations

Author’s Note: I’ve spent the better part of the past week nursing a pair of severe ear infections, a sore throat, and as I’ve deduced yesterday, a spider bite. As such it’s been difficult for me to get too in-depth on game tape during that time, hence why my work…

Game Rewind: Steelers vs Jaguars Breakdown

Game notes from the Pittsburgh Steelers 23-21 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. First Half – Kick return unit. Missing the players between the wedge and front five. Camera angles are always so poor and the lack of returns don’t help. Front five: Anthony Chickillo, Bud Dupree, Arthur Moats, Terence Garvin,…


Marczi 2015 53-Man Roster Prediction: Post-HOF Game

I was late to review the Hall of Fame game thanks to issues getting Game Pass sorted out, so my post-HOF game roster prediction came a bit late as we.. There were a few changes, though only one on offense. A couple of injuries settled certain things. I’ve also finally…


Ledyard 2015 53 Man Roster Prediction: Post HOF Game

In advance of the Pittsburgh Steelers second preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, I take another crack at predicting the team’s final 53-man roster and their ten man practice squad. Given the added benefit of seeing these players work during 13 training camp practices and one preseason game, I’ve got…

Cody Wallace Headshot

Steelers vs Vikings Film Room: Cody Wallace

The Pittsburgh Steelers offense looked awfully effete on Sunday night during the Hall of Fame game versus the Minnesota Vikings, a fact that can be safely accounted for wholesale simply by pointing out that only three starters—all offensive linemen—actually played. With the top two three traditional running backs sidelined, in…


Steelers 2015 Training Camp Diary: Day Thirteen

Day Thirteen! A short week of practices and the Pittsburgh Steelers won’t hit Chuck Noll Field until Sunday. Getting near the end of this adventure, unfortunately. Though there was no tackling today, it was an energetic practice with some great plays on both sides of the ball. Let’s dive in….
