Day Thirteen! A short week of practices and the Pittsburgh Steelers won’t hit Chuck Noll Field until Sunday. Getting near the end of this adventure, unfortunately. Though there was no tackling today, it was an energetic practice with some great plays on both sides of the ball. Let’s dive in….

Steelers 2015 Training Camp Stock Report: Day 13 – Wednesday

I’ve decided I love night practices, not just because the heat has subsided some by that point, but also because the players’ energy seems to skyrocket when they don’t have to suit up until the evening. Wednesday night was definitely an enthusiastic practice with plenty of highlight (and lowlight) moments…

Steelers Film Room: Tampa 2 MIKE Rules

The defensive buzzword in camp was “Cover 2.” But prior to the Hall of Fame game, it was impossible to know how much bite there was to the bark. It’s still just one game, and a lack of coaches film still makes it difficult to see schemes, but there is…

Second-Year Jump On Display In Hall Of Fame Game

It doesn’t seem to be very often that we get a clear definitive look at what the second-year jump is all about, but I think we saw that on display for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night, particularly with respect to the performances of Ryan Shazier and Stephon Tuitt versus…

Quick Hits: Steelers vs Vikings Winners/Losers

Game one of the preseason is in the books. While this list of winners and losers needs to be prefaced by the fact this is all based on a live observation, and no tape, there are players that stick out in each area. Keep the perspective that this is one…

Training Camp Diary: Day Eleven

Welcome to Day Eleven. Last day of practice before the team’s Hall of Fame game. As I tweeted, and maybe mentioned in yesterday’s report, we’re to the point where you learn less about the players in practice. It’s really just about seeing guys compete. You know their overall skillset. Game…

Training Camp Diary: Day Ten

Day Ten of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ training camp is in the books. Still fun to watch practice but this was easily the least intense one since the team put on the pads. By my count, not including the waived/injured Rob Blanchflower or the three PUP guys, 16 players held out…
