DHB On ‘Promotion’: ‘I Feel Like The Starter Anyway’

While the Pittsburgh Steelers’ depth chart ‘shakeup’ at the wide receiver position has drawn its fair share of attention—a quick gauge of that would be the number of views and comments in our articles this week that touched on the topic compared to other articles—there is one person in particular…



Steelers Injury Report: Roethlisberger Limited Thursday; Heyward, Gilbert Full Participants

Will Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee) ultimately play Sunday in the team’s road game against the Baltimore Ravens? I certainly don’t know the answer to that question and the team’s Thursday injury report, as expected, doesn’t provide any insight as it relates to that topic. Roethlisberger practiced again on…


2016 Midseason Review: Wide Receivers

We still have some time to kill before the Pittsburgh Steelers get back on the field, and their bye week happens to have fallen at a pretty appropriate time, so over the course of this week, we are going to bring you a sort of quick-hitter review of how the…




Eli Rogers

Tomlin Claims Rogers’ Recent Benching Was Not Discipline-Related

Even through Pittsburgh Steelers second-year wide receiver Eli Rogers dressed for the team’s Week 7 home game against the New England Patriots, the former undrafted free agent out of Louisville failed to play a single snap. A few days after the game was over, it was reported that Rogers presumable…


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…
