Steelers Step Out Of Character As Shazier Steps Into Starting Lineup

The Pittsburgh Steelers, seemingly, broke with apparent convention yesterday by inserting rookie inside linebacker Ryan Shazier into the first-team lineup from his very first full team practice during OTAs.

The Myth Of The Old Steelers Defense Is Slow To Die And Far From Over

Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers currently project to field an opening day defense that sports just two players over the age of 30, the old and slow moniker still clings to the team as one of the great myths of the current NFL landscape.
