Steelers Shake Up WR Depth Chart

I know it’s just the online depth chart but when the Pittsburgh Steelers make a bye week change, it’s notable. In their most recent version, Darrius Heyward-Bey is listed ahead of Markus Wheaton in the WR2 spot. This isn’t much of a surprise considering Wheaton’s shoulder injury that has kept him out…

Markus Wheaton Looking For Another Post-Bye Turnaround

It was not too far from a year ago that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Markus Wheaton made the most of the team’s late-season bye week to catapult himself into a career performance the following week, and proceeded to ride a pretty steady string of performances to round out the regular…

Bye Week Look At The Steelers 2017 Potential Free Agents

The Pittsburgh Steelers are currently on their annual bye week and as I do every year when that part of the schedule takes place, it’s time to take another look at the players currently on the 53-man roster who are scheduled to be free agents after the season is over…

Candidates To Be Waived Or Injure Reserved When Green Is Activated

With Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Ladarius Green now finally practicing with the team after spending the first seven weeks on the Reserve/PUP list, it’s only a matter of time before he’s activated back to the 53-man roster. When and if that does indeed happen, the Steelers will obviously need to…

DHB’s Season-High Snap Count Yields Low Impact Despite Touchdown

If you really want to gain some understanding as to just how shorthanded the Pittsburgh Steelers offense was on Sunday against the Patriots, I think no individual statistic might illustrate that point better than noting the fact that wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, who is essentially fifth on the depth chart…

Steelers Unlikely To Dip Their Toes In Trade Frenzy

It’s been a couple unusually active days in the NFL But with the trade deadline looming, November 1st, it’s not a total shock. We’ve seen the New England Patriots make a flurry of moves. They acquired linebacker Kyle Van Noy from the Detroit Lions and then ship out tight end…

Steelers WR Eli Rogers Refuses To Elaborate On Sunday’s Inactivity

If you’re like me, you were probably surprised that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Eli Rogers didn’t play a single snap in Sunday’s home loss to the New England Patriots even though he did dress for the game. I initially figured that Rogers reinjured his toe during warmups prior to the game, but…

David Todd: Quick Thoughts On Week 7: Steelers Versus Patriots

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost 27-16 on Sunday at Heinz Field to the New England Patriots. It was an expected and fair result, but one that was less than satisfying for a Steelers team that rallied back from an early deficit and was right where it wanted to be, down only…

2016 South Side Questions: How Bad Is Wheaton’s Shoulder?

The regular season is here, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are taking their practices at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex, formerly known and still referred to as the ‘South Side’ facility of Heinz Field. While the real work is now upon us, there is plenty left to be done. And there…

Cobi Hamilton Continues To Make Most Of Opportunities

The Pittsburgh Steelers made a late offseason addition to their 90-man roster this past summer when they brought in first-year wide receiver Cobi Hamilton. Although he came in likely without much going for him, he was able to work his way up the pecking order pretty quickly, and by the…

Antonio Brown Says He’ll Use Bye Week To Heal Injured Quad

In the third quarter of the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday loss to the New England Patriots, wide receiver Antonio Brown left the game with what was later termed a left quad injury by head coach Mike Tomlin. While Brown was ultimately able to return to the game in the fourth quarter…
