Steelers Expect To See Familiar Defensive Scheme Sunday Against Vikings

Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers haven’t played the Minnesota Vikings since 2013, the team’s offense should be pretty familiar with the defense the’ll see on Sunday at Heinz Field thanks to the numerous games they’ve played in past seasons against the Cincinnati Bengals. While Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer has…

Tomlin Not Surprised By Sunday Play Of Chickillo, Alualu

Butler, Steelers Preparing To Play Hue Jackson’s Offense

The first game is always a difficult one to gameplan for. Combine that with a rookie quarterback who wasn’t anointed as *the* guy from the get-go and it’s that much tougher. So it’s smart for the Pittsburgh Steelers to gameplan for Hue Jackson rather than DeShone Kizer. That’s a mantra…



Tomlin, Steelers Bungling Up Kick Return Situation

There are plenty of unfair, or at least debatable, criticisms of Mike Tomlin. Not being a good X’s and O’s guy (that one has always been pretty dumb), having unprepared teams, yadda yadda. One underrated, but certainly valid, criticism though is the mess the team has made time and time…
