Tomlin On CB Justin Gilbert: ‘He’s Very Much In Our Plans’

Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Justin Gilbert hasn’t played much so far this since being acquired via a September trade with the Cleveland Browns.

What James Harrison Told Tomlin After His Super Bowl Score

One of my favorite interviews each week is the gameday transcript of Steelers.com Bob Labriola’s conversation with Mike Tomlin. At a press conference, Tomlin is typically reserved, hyper-cliched, and frankly, kinda boring. But these interviews give a lot more interesting feedback. Much of the conversation revolved around James Harrison, four…


Taylor’s Take: Steelers Finally Getting Breaks On Stretch Run

Remember that old saying about a gift horse? The Steelers met theirs in Week 11 of this season when they beat the Cleveland Browns, 24-9, on the road Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium.

Tomlin Encouraged By Sean Davis’ Development

Sean Davis has had an up-down-season. He began the year as the starting slot corner, got benched, moved back to safety, and has slowly been chipping away at playing time. Yesterday, he ate the entire pie, playing every single snap in the win over the Cleveland Browns. Robert Golden was…

Bud Dupree

Tomlin On Dupree: ‘He’s Going To Be A Contributor To Us’

Pittsburgh Steelers second-year outside linebacker Bud Dupree sort of made his 2016 Sunday in the team’s win over the Cleveland Browns. In other words, he played just one defensive snap.

Tomlin Says Coates Still Has Problems Catching Footballs

One week after playing just two offensive snaps in the loss to the Dallas Cowboys, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Sammie Coates played just one offensive in Sunday’s win over the Cleveland Browns.

Tomlin Talks About Timmons Hit, Full-Time Officials And More

Maybe Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons won’t get fined after all for his Sunday third quarter hit on Cleveland Browns quarterback Cody Kessler.
