Steelers Defense Disappoints Playing With Most Of Starting Lineup

The Pittsburgh Steelers are now gearing up for a postseason run. Their regular season finale meant nothing to their playoff status, so one might argue that they may not have been putting their best foot forward. The effort that they showed to win the game might suggest otherwise, but either…


Steelers Vs Browns Winners/Losers

Well, let’s call it a less thrilling game than last week, but I think you’ll take that every year in Week 17. WINNERS Sean Davis: Davis put an exclamation point on a strong rookie season, ending the day with his first full sack and picking up a forced fumble when…





Buffalo Game May Have Been Death Knell For Formal OLB Rotation

The Pittsburgh Steelers faced just 48 plays on defense, which is pretty amazing when you consider that the Bills didn’t exactly have a lot of successful short drives or chunk plays. They did have one scoring drive that took just a couple of plays, but Pittsburgh had a nearly two-to-one…


Steelers Vs. Bills: Player Snap Counts – Week 14

The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Buffalo Bills 27-20 Sunday on the road and in the snow and a few things stick out when you look at the initial snap counts from the game. Offensively for the Steelers, tight ends Jesse James and Ladarius Green played 50 and 28 snaps respectively. Throw in tackle Chris Hubbard…


Bud Dupree Getting Up To Speed After Two-Sack Game

It started last week, but it seemed to really solidify yesterday. The Pittsburgh Steelers think that they have their two pass rushers going forward—at least for the rest of the season. James Harrison and Bud Dupree logged very nearly every defensive snap for the Steelers yesterday against the Bills as…


Film Room: Steelers’ Red Zone Adjustment Creating Splash Plays

It’s a coincidence but it’s a fun one, worthy of the stats of the weird variety. Week 13 has been kind to the Pittsburgh Steelers the last two years. Two immobile quarterbacks, two red zone interceptions on the same coverage. Though it may be frustrating to see Keith Butler send only three…


Steelers Vs. Giants: Player Snap Counts – Week 13

The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the New York Giants 24-14 Sunday at Heinz Field and a few things stick out when you look at the initial snap counts from the game. Offensively for the Steelers, tight end Ladarius Green played a season-high 35 snaps against the Giants and he responded with perhaps his best game…



Butler On Dupree: ‘He’s Still A Little Rusty’

During his Tuesday press conference, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin indicated that he’ll now move forward with a four-man rotation at the outside linebacker position. One of those four players will obviously be second-year linebacker Bud Dupree, who has now played in two games since returning from the team’s…



Steelers’ OLB Rotation Will Mean An Odd Man Out

File this under “good problems to have” even if, yes, it’s still a struggling group, but the Pittsburgh Steelers’ have too many outside linebackers to play. Mike Tomlin was very blunt about that at today’s weekly presser, saying they will not have a five man rotation. Five men enter. Four…


Arthur Moats Gets Shortest Straw In OLB Five-Man Draw

Now that the Pittsburgh Steelers have at long last gotten former first-round pick Bud Dupree back on the field—the second-year outside linebacker logged 20 snaps on Thursday against the Colts after playing just a single snap on Sunday in Cleveland—the inevitable juggling of playing time has commenced, and so far…
