Team Speed Not Among The Many Questions Facing Steelers Defense

With the Pittsburgh Steelers being in a natural state of transition, there isn’t a lot about it that can be said right now with any meaningful clarity, particularly with respect to how successful it might be or how it might differ schematically from teams past. To begin with, the unit…

Keith Butler With Big Opportunity As First Year Coordinator

It isn’t often that a first-year defensive coordinator has the chance to accomplish something a long-time legend had struggled to do in recent years, but that is exactly the opportunity in front of Pittsburgh Steelers coach Keith Butler. The former linebackers’ coach has had the honor of being tutored by…

Steelers Film Room: Arthur Moats Sack Review

The more I watch Arthur Moats play football, the less concerned I feel about the Pittsburgh Steelers 3-4 outside linebacker spots heading into the 2015 season.

AFC North Draft History Study: Linebackers

On the heels of the conclusion of the 2015 NFL Draft, I began to realize the need to enhance my understanding of each team’s draft history; what they’ve built or attempted to build over the past ten years and how they’ve went about that process. This may seem tedious to…

Steelers D Not Allowing Naysayers To Get In Their Ear

Much has been said in recent years of the transgression or downward spiral of the Steelers “once dominant” defense. The defenses that took the field in Super Bowls XL, XLIII and XLV put up a stone fortress shutting down opposing running lanes, and abused quarterbacks all game long. Since then,…
