Steelers Vs Panthers: Winners And Losers

Winners/losers from tonight’s finale, a 17-14 win for the Pittsburgh Steelers over the Carolina Panthers. WINNERS Terrell Watson – Watson got the ball early and often. As Mike Tomlin likes to point out, he has a downhill demeanor, rarely getting stopped in the backfield and always falling forward. He averaged…

Steelers Vs Falcons Missed Tackles Report

Two preseason games down, two wins for the Pittsburgh Steelers. And thankfully, two more games left until football starts to count. Last week against the New York Giants, the Steelers’ defense missed just eight tackles. This week against the Atlanta Falcons, that number dropped by two as the defensive unit…


Kozora 2017 Steelers’ Roster Prediction: Post First Game

Throwing out my first Pittsburgh Steelers’ roster prediction since the dead of the offseason. Decided against making one right before camp because it was going to look generally the same as the first. It’s still fluid, an important caveat to note, but we have a little more to go off of. Definitely…


Film Room: Jacob Hagen A Hopeful

It certainly seemed earlier in the offseason that the Pittsburgh Steelers were rather interested in finding a fifth safety to carry on to the 53-man roster once the regular season begins. It looked as though they might have found that candidate when they added free agent Daimion Stafford late in…


Steelers’ Training Camp Day One: What To Watch For

Welcome to the best day of the year. For me, at least, and maybe you as well. Football has returned with the Pittsburgh Steelers trotting down St. Vincent’s stairs to Chuck Noll Field a 2:55 PM practice. If you haven’t been around the site before, we’ll be there throughout camp,…


2017 Steelers Pre-Training Camp Roster Review: Safety

The last time that we took a look back at the Pittsburgh Steelers’ roster in review, it was very shortly after the 2016 season ended. It would be safe to say that quite a bit has changed, and, in a rarity, this actually applies to literally every position on the…


2017 Steelers Stock Watch – S Jacob Hagen – Stock Down

With the 2017 NFL Draft now over and the bulk of the heavy lifting done with regard to the roster building process now out of the way, it is easier to begin to take stock of where the Pittsburgh Steelers stand at certain positions, and what the implications might be of a…



Devil’s Advocate: Safe Landing For Hagen

You may recall for the past several offseasons that I ran an article series called The Optimist’s/Pessimist’s Take. I used it to explore different issues and topics the Pittsburgh Steelers were facing and took a positive or negative approach, examining each side in a separate article. This is essentially the…


Steelers 2017 Pre-Draft Movements: Safety

The Pittsburgh Steelers entered this league year with well over a dozen players scheduled to hit unrestricted free agency. They ended up retaining five of those unrestricted free agents, and also tendered their two restricted free agents. Pittsburgh also added help from outside of the organization at wide receiver, defensive…


2017 Offseason Positional Review – Safety

The season might not quite be over for another couple of days, but 30 teams, including the Pittsburgh Steelers, have already hit offseason mode following their elimination, either prior to or during the playoffs. Pittsburgh got quite far this year, reaching the AFC Championship game for the first time since…


Steelers Sign Hagen, Release Cobb From Practice Squad

The Pittsburgh Steelers are close to finishing off the slew of roster moves they made last week after elevating Al-Hajj Shabazz and Matt Feiler to the 53 last week. The team announced today they have signed safety Jacob Hagen and offensive tackle Austin Shepherd to the practice squad. They’ve also…


Steelers Sign RB Daryl Richardson To Practice Squad

The Pittsburgh Steelers made one transaction on Monday morning and it was related to their practice squad. Signed to the 10-man practice squad on Monday was running back Daryl Richardson, who was waived from the 53-man roster on Thursday in order to make room for running back Le’Veon Bell. Richardson…


2016 South Side Questions: Will Daryl Richardson Be Back?

The regular season is here, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are taking their practices at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex, formerly known and still referred to as the ‘South Side’ facility of Heinz Field. While the real work is now upon us, there is plenty left to be done. And there…
