Tomlin Appreciates Team’s Ability To Overcome Adversity

Every team has to overcome adversity during the season. But maybe none have had to, and done so, more than this year’s Pittsburgh Steelers. There were the suspensions: Martavis Bryant for the year, Le’Veon Bell for three games. Joey Porter’s arrest. Antonio Brown’s video that left everyone clutching their pearls….


Le’Veon Bell Says Practices Are Tougher Than Games

Maybe Le’Veon Bell really is Superman. Speaking to the media today, Bell said practices are more taxing on him than the actual games. “I condition during practice,” Bell told reporters earlier today via Steelers.com. “I make sure I run. The funny part is, the game is a lot easier than…


Ravens Don’t Expect NT Brandon Williams To Return

He’s been a thorn in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ side for the last two seasons. But 2016 might have been the last time the team will have to face him twice in a season. Baltimore Ravens’ nose tackle Brandon Williams is reportedly likely to sign elsewhere in the offseason, per ESPN’s…

Watch: Vince Williams Unstoppable On Special Teams

As I say in the start of my video, I don’t think I’ve ever done one of these “talk to the tape” breakdowns on special teams. So really excited to delve into it. Special teams was a strong area for the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Sunday. Chris Boswell had a record day…


Antonio Brown Apologizes For Facebook Live Video

After being called out by Mike Tomlin this afternoon for his, in the coach’s words, “selfish” decision to film in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ locker room after Sunday’s win, Antonio Brown has issued an apology. He posted the apology on his social media accounts moments ago. pic.twitter.com/Ch1NyA9nin — Antonio Brown (@AntonioBrown)…


Steelers Not Holding Anything Back On Kick Coverage Decisions

The kick coverage was great Sunday. Well, pretty great.  But other than my nitpicking and cynical nature, the Pittsburgh Steelers held Tyreek Hill in check for one of the worst games on the season. Mike Tomlin said they had to “sell out” to stop him because in an elimination game,…



Film Room: Special Teams’ Blunder Mars Successful Day

I know you all think I’m a bit of a Danny Smith apologist. So you probably think I’m doing my victory lap with how well special teams performed against the Kansas City Chiefs. And they did well. Mostly. The caveat comes from the Pittsburgh Steelers first kickoff, the obvious blunder, a…


Steelers Vs Chiefs Sack Breakdown

Just one of these to look at. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ offensive line has made my life easy with this stuff in 2016. 1. 3rd and 8, 10:38 4th. 11 personnel. Five blocking a four man rush. This is flat out a coverage sack. Kansas City is playing Cover 1 robber, man…


Steelers Finding An Explosive Run Game During Playoff Run

It was one of the curiosities of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offense over the course of the regular season. They were ranked alongside the Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, all three teams who missed out on the playoffs this season. After two playoff games, the feel is completely…


Chris Boswell Matched Chiefs’ Offensive Output Last Night

Fun nugget info for the “stats of the weird’ fanbase that we have. This time, a hat tip to the fine people over at ESPN’s Stats and Info. They pointed out last night that Chris Boswell’s field goals matched the entire offensive output of the Kansas City Chiefs. 227 to…



Film Room: Red Zone Interception Ben’s Fault, Not Haley’s

All’s well that ends well, I suppose, but the Pittsburgh Steelers’ red zone offense was less efficient than the layout of the Fort Pitt Bridge. It can be traced back to a lot of issues, poor playcalls and a lack of execution. Ben Roethlisberger was responsible for one of those…
