Michael Vick Debut Shows Promise On Short Turnaround

The Pittsburgh Steelers did not use this third week of the preseason as their regular season dress rehearsal, as is the norm around the league. That much is clear. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger played just two drives, one of which was a three-and-out, and his day was done less than five…

Steelers Defense Shredded, Fall to Bills 43-19

When opposing quarterbacks combine to go 30-33 for 386 yards, three touchdowns and zero turnovers, you know it has been a bad day for your defense. When those four signal callers all play for the Buffalo Bills, you start to question the legitimacy of the unit as a whole. The…

Quick Hits: Steelers vs Bills Winners/Losers

If you can stomach it, my picks from the Pittsburgh Steelers 43-19 loss to the Buffalo Bills today. WINNERS:  Martavis Bryant: Bryant won but it only makes his looming four game suspension sting that much worse. He racked up 138 yards on three catches for gains of 63, 39, and 36…

Marczi 2015 53-Man Roster Prediction: Post-Packers Game

Offense (24) Quarterback (3) – Ben Roethlisberger, Michael Vick, Landry Jones Analysis: One change. It’s no surprise that the Steelers went out to sign a veteran to replace Bruce Gradkowski. Jones was never going to be the number two this season, so that should not be seen as an indictment…

Preseason Week 4: Steelers Friday Night Five Questions

Happy Friday to all of you. It will be good to get this week behind us as it certainly wasn’t a great one for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Not only did they lose center Maurkice Pouncey for at least the first 8 games of the 2015 season on Sunday, they also…

Ledyard 2015 53 Man Roster Prediction: Post Packers Game

After several injuries and one unfortunate suspension, I take another shot at predicting the Pittsburgh Steelers final 53-man roster. I look forward to watching many of the remaining roster battles get settled up until September 1st or even September 5th, when first and second cuts are, respectively. Offense (23) Quarterbacks…

Kozora 2015 53 Man Roster Prediction: Post Packers Game

My weekly roster prediction update. Unfortunately because of injuries and suspension, this roster is going to look a lot more different than anyone was anticipating. This roster will reflect Martavis Bryant being placed on the reserve/suspended list, and with Maukrice Pouncey already on the IR/to return list. So think of…

Art Rooney II On Vick: He’s Made A Sincere Effort

Pittsburgh Steelers President Art Rooney II sat down with Steelers.com’s Missi Matthews to give his first interview since the team signed Michael Vick Tuesday. Matthews began the interview asking several questions about Vick, including if Rooney himself talked to him before the team signed him. “I did. We were trying…


Chris Hubbard

Steelers Vs Packers Film Room: Chris Hubbard

Pittsburgh Steelers second-year offensive lineman Chris Hubbard has gotten the breakdown treatment in each of the first three games thus far this preseason, but that has been so for good reason. Hubbard, who spent 16 games on the 53-man roster in 2014 after a redshirt season on the practice squad…

Steelers Now Have 12 Former First Round Draft Picks Under Contract

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed quarterback Michael Vick on Wednesday and being as he is a former first-round selection that means the team now has a total of 12 players who were originally drafted in the first round. While that number did seem high to me, research shows that the New York Jets currently have 13 former…

Vick Promises To Be The Best Backup He Can Be

In a game last season against the San Diego Chargers, New York Jets starting quarterback Geno Smith was benched after a lousy first half performance that included him completing just 4 of 12 passes for 27 yards and an interception. Michael Vick, who signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers late Tuesday…
