Deadspin: Why The Steelers Suck

Calm down, Steelers’ Nation. This is all in good fun. One of my favorite yearly series of articles is the Why Your Team Sucks series by Deadspin’s Drew Magary. He attacks every team with the same vigor so if you’re unfamiliar, don’t think he’s singling out just the Pittsburgh Steelers. But you…

Film Room: Sammie Coates And Genius Of Todd Haley

Sammie Coates scored a touchdown. That is, if my records are correct, the first touchdown Coates has scored since training camp last season. He didn’t have one last preseason or in camp this year and was shut out the first two games. So it was nice to see him find…

Sammie Coates Reflects On Preseason Start

A great training camp. A not so great pair of preseason games. That’s how you can sum up Sammie Coates’ 2016 season. He sat down with Steelers.com’s Missi Matthews to reflect on what’s happened this year. “That’s part of the game,” Coates told Matthews on his disappointing preseason performances. “You…

The David Johnson Conundrum

I love David Johnson. Ok, maybe love is a little strong of a word. But he was undervalued in his first stint and the second time around, he has the chance to carve out a niche role as a blocker. Regardless of Ladarius Green’s status, Johnson is going to be a backup…

Following the 2015 season there was a glaring issue on the Steelers roster; aside from the lack of depth amongst defensive backs, it was the lack of defensive linemen. This was most evident due to the fact that both Cameron Heyward and Stephon Tuitt were on the field for nearly…
