Kozora 2015 53 Man Roster Prediction: Post Packers Game

My weekly roster prediction update. Unfortunately because of injuries and suspension, this roster is going to look a lot more different than anyone was anticipating. This roster will reflect Martavis Bryant being placed on the reserve/suspended list, and with Maukrice Pouncey already on the IR/to return list. So think of…

Steelers Film Room: Outside Linebacker Anthony Chickillo

A lot of recent Pittsburgh Steelers roster talk has centered around how many linebackers the team will keep on the final 53, and if Anthony Chickillo’s name will be among those chosen. I’ve made the case that it should be, but the coaching staff has been very reluctant to give…

Steelers Training Camp Recap: Defense

Yesterday, we walked through the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offense player-by-player, recapping how each player performed during training camp. Today, we’ll do the same for the defense and punters. Cam Heyward: One of the best at his position, there wasn’t a need to pay attention to Heyward in camp. But it was…

Final 2015 Steelers Training Camp Comprehensive Stock Report

Here’s my final stock report from Steelers training camp, with a list of players who helped themselves the most, those who may have seen their stock drop with subpar performances, and others who may have left themselves in limbo with up-and-down showings at camp. Stock Up 1. RB Jawon Chisholm…

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….

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 Second 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…

Practice Squad May Have No Need For Linebackers In 2015

With the Pittsburgh Steelers seeming increasingly likely to carry a rare 10 linebackers on their 53-man roster this season, that likely means that we won’t have what has typically been a staple on the practice squad this year: the developmental linebacker. If the Steelers do choose to carry 10 linebackers,…

Steelers Training Camp Stock Report: Day 15

We’re getting into the home stretch now, that part of the final training camp week where crossbar challenges and trash can toss and stretch period banter become more frequent (if you don’t know what these are by now, you need to come experience one of the remaining days of camp)….

Training Camp Diary: Day Fifteen

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…
