Mike Mitchell: Don’t Hate The Player Or The Game

Few people were as outspokenly critical of Mike Mitchell as I was last year, consistently noting the poor angles, shoddy tackling, and over-aggressive nature that led to the Pittsburgh Steelers defense getting beat down the field constantly. Due to Troy Polamalu’s roaming style, Mitchell was often asked to cover a…


Steelers Film Room: Antwon Blake Vs Bengals

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had not had a real good whipping boy since the heyday of William Gay in 2009, and Antwon Blake has come close this season to bearing that level of animosity. And to be truthful, much of it had been merited based on his play. But it’s…

Steelers Film Room: Mike Mitchell Vs Bengals

We know have an entire half-season’s body of work upon which to judge Mike Mitchell in comparison to last season. While it’s obvious that much of his playing better has to do with being notably healthier and more in-tuned with the defense and his teammates, I also think he is…

Ross Cockrell

Steelers Film Room: Ross Cockrell Vs Bengals

He wasn’t in their plans to start the season—really, he wasn’t even on the roster a week prior—but second-year cornerback Ross Cockrell has become an integral part of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense since assuming the nickel back role in the second game of the season. Cockrell has logged 337 snaps…

Robert Golden

Steelers Film Room: Robert Golden Vs Bengals

Mike Mitchell Doubles Down On Celebration Decision

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Mike Mitchell isn’t one who is afraid to speak his mind. And he was very clear with reporters today that he has no problem with his celebration after injuring Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones in the second quarter Sunday’s game. Several reporters have the quotes. #Mitchell…


Mike Tomlin Has No Problem With Mitchell’s Celebration

Mike Mitchell loves to hit. Mike Mitchell loves to celebrate. He did both on the same play Sunday, crushing Cincinnati Bengals’ wide receiver Marvin Jones in the second quarter of Sunday’s loss. To some, celebrating after Jones was injured was crossing the line but Mike Tomlin told reporters he had…

Mike Mitchell Stepping Into The Shoes He Was Asked To Fill

Perhaps nobody this side of William Gay has done a finer job silencing his critics within the Pittsburgh Steelers faithful in recent memory than has veteran safety Mike Mitchell, in his second season with the team after signing a comparatively lucrative free agent contract to take over for Ryan Clark….


Quick Hits: Steelers vs Bengals Winners/Losers

It’s ok to cry. It’s ok to cry. It’s ok to cry. *cries* WINNERS:  Keith Butler: There is a lot of praise to be heaped on to the defense but we’ll start with the man who runs them all. It is always tough to gauge the performance of a coach but…


Kozora: Week Eight Fantasy Football Preview

Happy Halloween Steelers’ Nation! It’s a holiday for the kids of course, much more than adults. And there’s that awkward teenager stage inbetween; the transition from when wearing costumes are acceptable and when it’s just kinda of…weird. When instead of dressing up, you ironically throw on a pair of cat…


Bengals’ Trickery, Preparation Will Give Steelers Fits Sunday

Mike Tomlin does like to make every team he previews in his weekly Tuesday press conference sound like the 1927 New York Yankees. But something he said when talking about the Cincinnati Bengals caught my ear. “They do a great job schematically of presenting some packages of the week to…
