Is Kelvin Beachum The Next Hines Ward?

By Michael K. Reynolds In 1998, using the second of their two third round draft picks, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected one of the greatest receivers in their gloried history.

Roethlisberger Not Big On Using An Extra Offensive Lineman Inside The Red Zone

Earlier this week, I wrote about how the Pittsburgh Steelers offense has struggled inside the red zone this season and on Wednesday, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was asked to give his thoughts on the subject. “We scored twice down there but we kicked field goals,” started Roethlisberger. “That’s why I think I was so disappointed after […]

Jonathan Dwyer Taking A Liking To Short-Yardage Role

By Matthew Marczi A few weeks back, I observed a certain trend in the way that the Pittsburgh Steelers began using running back Jonathan Dwyer, and speculated that the team was building a role for him as a short-yardage back. That truly came to fruition in the team’s last game against the Buffalo Bills, particularly […]

Tight End Reps Keeping Mike Adams In The Loop

By Matthew Marczi Mike Adams should be thanking Levi Brown for being so fragile as to suffer a season-ending injury during pre-game warm ups. Had that not occurred, perhaps Adams would still be spending his Sundays in sweat clothes as he ‘hones his craft’ in practice. That is hyperbole, of course. Given the carousel of […]

Steelers Versus Bills – Second Half Notes And Observations

By Matthew Marczi Jarvis Jones sure got an ear-full after the special teams penalty. The Steelers really hurt themselves on special teams with stupid mistakes. In the first half, they were offsides on a kickoff. In the second half, Shaun Suisham sent one out of bounds before the end zone. Will Allen played 32 snaps […]

Guy Whimper Against The New England Patriots

By Matthew Marczi Considering the fact that both Marcus Gilbert and Mike Adams are questionable to play today, there is a strong possibility that we will be seeing even more of Guy Whimper.
