Steelers On Pace For Record Number Of Sacks

Blitzburgh is back? Well, maybe. After all, the Pittsburgh Steelers haven’t exactly been playing a murderer’s row of offenses so far – Cleveland, Minnesota, Chicago, and Baltimore. The NFL equivalent of a yawn. But to their credit, their pass rush has gotten the job done. And their on track for…


JJ Wilcox Making Early Impression On Tomlin

Eli Rogers’ Benching Not A ‘Firing,’ Tomlin Says

Eli Rogers drew the short straw on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. Taken off punt returns, the Pittsburgh Steelers saw more value in dressing Justin Hunter to play receiver, sending Rogers to the bench and into his street clothes. In Mike Tomlin’s eyes, this isn’t the end of Rogers’ career…


Steelers ‘Sudden Change’ Continues To Be An Asset

Sudden change is an area Mike Tomlin harps on. It’s right up there with being the more conditioned team, being the more physical one, and wearing cool sunglasses. And it’s an area the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense has succeeded in this year. The Steelers’ offense has turned the ball over three…
