Steelers Under Mike Tomlin Do Prefer Carrying Four Running Backs

Yesterday, I wrote about the Pittsburgh Steelers’ running back position and its hypothetical long-term future—not much of which is known, of course, given that neither Le’Veon Bell, DeAngelo Williams, or even Fitzgerald Toussaint are under contract for beyond the 2016 season. I wrote that, given the odd of Williams, at…


Steelers Should Be Open To Retaining Four Running Backs

When it comes to the 2016 season and etching out a 53-man roster, we are certainly still a long way off before anything remotely close to a clear picture can begin to materialize. That much goes without saying. The Pittsburgh Steelers still have to go through the free agency process…

Jerricho Cotchery Saw Potential Of Steelers Offense In 2013

Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery is currently preparing to participate in the first Super Bowl of his career. Such is the fate of an individual who spend the majority of his career playing for the Jets (I kid—but not really). But prior to spending the past two seasons…
