While the final preseason game is typically no more than a brief joyride for most starters, the Pittsburgh Steelers sent a few of their young starters on defense on a bit more of a cruise last week against the Carolina Panthers.

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: Lawrence Timmons

Pittsburgh Steelers inside linebacker Lawrence Timmons only played on the defense’s opening possession, but it was a long, sustained drive that at one point seemed to have been stopped by Timmons on fourth and one. The officials ruled on the field that Carolina Panthers fullback Mike Tolbert’s forward momentum gained two yards on the play, […]

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: Brett Keisel

The Pittsburgh Steelers released their first official depth chart of the season yesterday, and it has Brett Keisel listed as the backup right defensive end. The Steelers still list Cameron Heyward as starting on the left side, rather than the right side, but I don’t expect that to be the case. He should be on […]

Steelers Roster Cranks Secondary Up To 11 For First Time Under Tomlin

Perhaps I shouldn’t get ahead of myself, with potential further roster moves pending, but I was certainly not surprised to see that the Pittsburgh Steelers chose to keep 11 defensive backs on the initial 53-man roster. The fact of that matter is that the Steelers spend more time with five defensive backs on the field […]

Steelers vs Panthers – First Half Notes And Observations

Below are my notes and observations for the first half of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ preseason finale against the Carolina Panthers: Throughout the entire preseason, Ben Roethlisberger has been the sole team captain.

UPDATED – Bryan: Steelers 2014 53 Man Roster Prediction – Final Edition

UPDATED: Being as the team has yet to make any moves outside of placing Jordan Zumwalt on injured reserve, which I predicted, and claiming cornerback B.W.

Marczi: Steelers 53-Man Roster Prediction – Final Edition

The Pittsburgh Steelers have completed their slate of preseason games, and in fact will be trimming their roster down to 53 players later today. They signed a late addition in the recently released B.W. Webb, a second-year fourth-round cornerback, which certainly throws a monkey wrench into my decision-making here, but let’s try one last time […]

Steelers vs Panthers – What I’m Watching For On Defense

The Pittsburgh Steelers were embarrassed last week in their 31-21 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, what was supposed to be a dress rehearsal for the regular season.

Steelers Rookie Class Update: Making The Cut

The Pittsburgh Steelers’s 2014 draft class consisted of nine new players, including three compensatory draft picks in the third, fifth, and sixth rounds, and excluding their natural third-round pick, which they traded the previous year for a 2013 fourth-round pick.
