Kozora 2017 Steelers’ Roster Prediction: Post First Game

Throwing out my first Pittsburgh Steelers’ roster prediction since the dead of the offseason. Decided against making one right before camp because it was going to look generally the same as the first. It’s still fluid, an important caveat to note, but we have a little more to go off of. Definitely…

Film Room: Steelers Defense Showing More Physicality In Coverage

And no, it doesn’t always have to come from the secondary. Much has been made of the secondary evolving this season. Bigger corners. More man coverage. While it’s hard to learn a lot about coverages from the Pittsburgh Steelers’ game Friday, partly because it’s the preseason, partly because we don’t…



Francis Kallon Making For Intriguing Practice Squad Candidate

He’s a man who gets few reps in practice. Near the end of the roster. But he’s worth keeping around on the practice squad. Defensive end Francis Kallon is as raw as they come, and it shows on the field, but there’s intriguing upside and athleticism. One play against the…


Steelers Training Camp Diary: Day 13

Pretty light day of practice the Pittsburgh Steelers had today. So this entry is probably going to be shorter and less informative than usual. No pads, no contact. No sun either, a cloudy day over St. Vincent College. Quick aside: want to thank our training camp sponsor, Touring Plans, who is…
