Steelers OLB Chris Carter Still The Fourth Wheel

Confirmation bias is a dangerous logical fallacy. We hold a specific belief, and then interpret all new data through the lens of that belief, selectively retaining the information that seems to lend credence to our previously established belief.

“Mistake Speed” Helps Put Ryan Shazier On The Fast Track To Starting

As Ryan Shazier looks to become the first rookie to start a season with the Pittsburgh Steelers on defense since Kendrell Bell, he does have one notable advantage that many other past rookies have not, which is a big part of why he was drafted: speed.

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.

With so much focus and attention being placed on the Pittsburgh Steelers’s incoming class of rookies by all form of media—including ourselves, naturally—it’s easy to forget about the rest of the youth on the roster.
