Steelers WR Eli Rogers Updates Injury Status Following Loss

While it won’t really natter for several more months, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Eli Rogers said well after his team was eliminated from the playoffs by the Jacksonville Jaguars that the right leg injury that he suffered during the fourth quarter isn’t serious. “I am fine. Thanks to all the…


Overview Of The Steelers 2018 Free Agents

Now that the Pittsburgh Steelers have been eliminated from the 2017-2018 playoffs, it’s time to do a quick overview of the players who are scheduled to be free agents come the start of the 2018 league year in March. As usual, these free agents are broken down by three types; unrestricted, restricted…


Danny Smith Praises Eli Rogers For Production, Cautions Comfort

Eli Rogers sat squarely in the doghouse in Week Four. He was coming off a disaster against the Chicago Bears, flubbing his first punt return chance, in an ugly loss to a team the Pittsburgh Steelers were expected to beat. Rogers had already begun to lose snaps at receiver to…


Arrow Pointed Up For Return Units Heading Into Postseason Play

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been a long-suffering franchise when it comes to getting much of anything exciting out of their return game, or, to be more accurate, their kick return game, which has not offered much since the 2011 season, which featured Antonio Brown in that role. Brown was removed…



Steelers Special Teams Show Up In Win Against Texans

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had trouble with certain aspects of their special teams for a bulk of the 2017 season. Kicker Chris Boswell has been terrific and punter Jordan Berry consistent, but the return game, especially, has been terrible this season. That is until Monday’s road game against the Houston Texans. Heading into…



Bryant To Play Brown’s X Position In Steelers Offense Against Texans

On Thursday, Steelers rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster confirmed that fellow wide receiver…



Steelers Botched End Of Game Management Is Most Frustrating

I didn’t want Ben Roethlisberger to spike the ball. I’m glad he didn’t. But I can’t imagine anyone is happy with what the Pittsburgh Steelers substituted. And I’m not talking about the result, the hindsight of the outcome, an interception that sealed the win for the Patriots. I’m talking about…


Eli Rogers Believes He Was Held On Final Fake Spike Play

Even though most of you still aren’t over the overturned catch and touchdown by Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Jesse James late in Sunday’s loss to the New England Patriots, I will try to get your mind of that controversial ruling by giving you something else to be mad at. On…


Tomlin Praises Work Of Jesse James And Vance McDonald

As good as Antonio Brown was tonight, and he was as good as ever, he couldn’t have done it alone. Stepping up without JuJu Smith-Schuster were the Pittsburgh Steelers tight ends. Combined, Vance McDonald and Jesse James caught 14 passes for 149 yards. For James it was a career high,…


Eli Rogers Must Step Up Tomorrow Night

Earth to Eli Rogers. For most of the season, there hasn’t been a response. After a solid 2016, this year has been church-mouse quiet for Rogers. JuJu Smith-Schuster easily passed him up, and is now doing laps around him, and issues on punt returners led to a benching that got…
