Film Room: Titans Halftime Adjustment Produces Long TD To Open Second Half

While the Pittsburgh Steelers defense has played extremely well this season as a whole, the unit has surrendered its share of explosive passing plays just the same. Not just explosive plays, however, but double-explosive plays, meaning 40 yards or longer. In the team’s Thursday night home win over the Tennessee…


Film Room: Robert Golden Next Man Up?

I don’t think I was the only person who was surprised when they saw Robert Golden come onto the field in Detroit two Sundays ago after Pittsburgh Steelers starting free safety Mike Mitchell hobbled off with what was revealed yesterday as an Achilles injury. Earlier in the year, when a…


Scary Sight: Steelers Forced To Play With Pair Of Backup Safeties

Things certainly got dicey there for a while at the back end of the secondary. And now, I’m not talking about what the Detroit Lions were able to do against the entirety of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense through the air. Matthew Stafford completed 27 of 45 passes against them yesterday…

Steelers Say They Expected To Have Chance To Run Fake Punt Vs Bengals

Yesterday’s biggest play didn’t come from Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, or anyone on the Cincinnati Bengals. It came from the most unlikely of places – reserve safety Robert Golden.

Cam Sutton, Mike Hilton Change Numbers

Though you won’t see Cam Sutton until mid-season, he’ll be sporting a new number when he takes the field. Now that the roster has been trimmed down and set, several players have changed numbers. Here is an updated list. Robert Golden – #20 Mike Hilton – #31 Cam Sutton –…


Dime Packages Only Increasing Steelers’ Versatility

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense doesn’t need to play man-to-man coverage 90% of the time. They don’t need to run a 4-3, 3-3-5, or move Ryan Shazier to safety. The key to their success, beyond obvious bullet points like a strong pass rush, is to be a varied defense. I think…


New Steelers CB Joe Haden Buys No. 21 From S Robert Golden

New Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Joe Haden finally has a jersey number.
