Familiarity An Asset For David Johnson In Nix’s Absence

Just as I feared soon after the Pittsburgh Steelers announced a practice squad that featured two running backs in addition to the three that were already on the 53-man roster—and even before that, when I noticed his absence—fullback Roosevelt Nix is still ailing, evidently, from a back injury that held…

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…

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,…

Bryan: 2016 Steelers 53-Man Roster Prediction: Final Edition

Now that the Pittsburgh Steelers have closed out their 2016 preseason, it’s time for me to release my final 53-man roster prediction. Please note that this prediction has two sections. The top section is what I predict the 53-man roster to look like Saturday evening right after 4 p.m. deadline….

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…

Steelers Film Room: Le’Veon Bell Vs Saints

It took until the third preseason game, but Pittsburgh Steelers fans were finally able to see Le’Veon Bell in game action for the first time since his knee injury suffered last November 1. Against the New Orleans Saints, Bell touched the ball eight times (three rushes, five catches) for a…

2016 South Side Questions: Does Grimble Have A Roster Spot?

Training camp has ended, and the Pittsburgh Steelers have reverted back to taking their practices at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex, formerly known and still referred to as the ‘South Side’ facility of Heinz Field. While training camp might have seen a lot of work put into the team and…

The David Johnson Conundrum

I love David Johnson. Ok, maybe love is a little strong of a word. But he was undervalued in his first stint and the second time around, he has the chance to carve out a niche role as a blocker. Regardless of Ladarius Green’s status, Johnson is going to be a backup…

Keenan Lewis Reunion Would Continue Steelers’ Tradition

I don’t want to pretend the ink has been put on the paper yet but Keenan Lewis re-signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers would be just another in a long line of Steel City reunions. So let’s get a little nostalgic with the previous players who left for greener pastures but…

Steelers Film Room: David Johnson Vs Eagles

It became increasingly obvious why the Pittsburgh Steelers chose to re-sign former Steelers tight end David Johnson after they released Matt Spaeth with a failed physical. Quite simply, it appears that they will need him, because they have little else in the form of known commodities when it comes to…

Roosevelt Nix Conspicuously Absent Against Eagles

When it comes to preseason football and 90-man rosters, it is far from out of the ordinary that we might not see every player that is dressed for the game actually have the opportunity to get into the game. Just because a player may not end up playing in a…
