Steelers Finally Use Will Johnson As Run Game Explodes

During the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 37-19 victory over the Carolina Panthers, I joked early on that fullback Will Johnson had bought himself a season-long exile on the bench after he dropped a pass early in the game. I was joking, of course, but there tends to be a lining of truth in all humor. After all, […]

Improved Tackling Leads To Improved Defense For Steelers

There was a time when any more than a modest handful of missed tackles was a sloppy game for the Pittsburgh Steelers defense under Dick LeBeau. But that’s now considered a good day at the office, and Sunday night’s victory over the Carolina Panthers was just such a day. Missed tackles have been plaguing this […]

Steelers Finally Get A Takeway Without A Giveway On Offense

It only took, by my count, 157 plays, but the Pittsburgh Steelers defense finally recorded its first turnover of the season last night against the Carolina Panthers. It happened on the opening drive of the third quarter when outside linebacker Jarvis Jones beat left tackle Byron Bell for a sack, cutting inside and jamming his […]

Steelers Play Justin Brown Over Lance Moore Despite Veteran’s Return

The Pittsburgh Steelers gained the services of free agent wide receiver Lance Moore last night for the first time in four weeks after the veteran missed the first two games of the regular season, in addition to the final two games of the preseason. Yet they certainly didn’t make liberal use of him against the […]

Steelers Offense Gets A Jolt After Eight Quarters Out Of End Zone

The Pittsburgh Steelers failed to get into the end zone for eight straight quarters in 2014, from the third quarter of the season opener against the Cleveland Browns through the first half of their victory last night over the Carolina Panthers. But they finished the night punching it in on offense three times, while adding […]

Le’Veon Bell Leads League With 461 Yards From Scrimmage

Correct me if I’m wrong, but my research tells me that Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell leads all skill position players through the first three games of the season with 461 total yards from scrimmage. He and Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray are the only two running backs to eclipse 300 yards. Murray […]

Ben Roethlisberger Looks To Start A New Touchdown Streak Sunday Night

The Pittsburgh Steelers were soundly beaten by the Baltimore Ravens last Thursday night in a game in which Pittsburgh only scored six points on a pair of Shaun Suisham field goals. It didn’t help that three of the Steelers’ possessions ended in turnovers, with two of them occurring deep in Ravens territory. Somewhat lost in […]

Steelers vs Ravens Film Review: Cam Thomas

The Pittsburgh Steelers, at this point, are basically starting Cam Thomas at left defensive end because they are waiting for either Stephon Tuitt to be ready mentally or for Brett Keisel to be ready physically to be a starter. That’s my working theory, anyway, because he would certainly be of better service to this unit […]

Steelers vs Ravens Film Review Steve McLendon

Membership numbers of the Steve McLendon Is Not A Nose Tackle support group may have taken a hit following last Thursday’s loss by the Pittsburgh Steelers, who fell 26-6 to the Baltimore Ravens in a game in which the second-year starter was most certainly the defense’s best player. Suffice it to say that the Ravens’ […]

Steelers vs Ravens Film Review: Maurkice Pouncey

During his rookie season in 2013, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell averaged just 3.5 yards per carry. Through two games into his second season, he’s been accumulating yardage at a rate of 5.3 yards per clip. One logical assumption would be that the Steelers’ offensive line has made great strides in its run-blocking from […]

Steelers vs Ravens Film Review: David DeCastro

For the Pittsburgh Steelers, most of the offensive line had a fairly quiet evening in pass protection against the Baltimore Ravens, excepting Marcus Gilbert and Ramon Foster. The rest gave up a pressure here and there, but otherwise were solid. Yet even though the Steelers managed to average 5.5 yards per carry—four of which came […]

Steelers vs Ravens Film Review: Markus Wheaton

Markus Wheaton may have only gained 38 yards on his five receptions against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night, but the second-year Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver continued to show that he has the potential to be a serious weapon for Ben Roethlisberger and the offense, both now and in the future. Through two games, the […]

With Lance Moore sidelined with a groin injury for the first two weeks of the season, Pittsburgh Steelers first-year wide receiver Justin Brown has gotten the opportunity to log over 100 snaps through the first two games of his career.

Steelers Boast A Top 10 WR Tandem According To Pro Football Focus

In his first four seasons in the league, Antonio Brown has already gone to the Pro Bowl twice. Last season, he was named to the All-Pro team after storming past the Pittsburgh Steelers’ single-season record for receiving yards, and nearly tying the franchise single-season record for receptions in the process. The only reason, perhaps, that […]

Only Uncharted Territory In Recent Domestic Violence Cases Is Public Scrutiny

The National Football League has long been able to turn a blind eye to many of its athletes’ moral and ethical indiscretions in the past. It certainly wasn’t much of an issue to avoid before the advent of social media. It has become increasingly difficult to do so since then, but, by and large, the […]

Steelers vs Ravens Film Review: Le’Veon Bell

I can’t imagine anybody arguing against the fact that second-year running back Le’Veon Bell has been the Pittsburgh Steelers’ best weapon on offense through the team’s first two games. He is averaging over five yards per carry, and nearly 10 yards per reception, totaling over 300 yards in total offense thus far. Bell only got […]

The Pittsburgh Steelers didn’t use Darrius Heyward-Bey often in last week’s games, though he did manage to log 16 snaps between the two. He played nine snaps on Thursday night against the Baltimore Ravens, the majority of which came toward the end of the first quarter and into the second quarter of the game. Of […]

Steelers vs Ravens Film Review: Kelvin Beachum

Even with 13 starts now to his name as the starting left tackle for the Pittsburgh Steelers, there are still question marks about third-year offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum, at least in regards to his potential as a franchise player. His strength has not, and likely never will be, the running game—although left tackles rarely specialize […]

Marcus Gilbert In Need Of A Rebound After Slow Start

Like Maurkice Pouncey, Shaun Suisham, and Cortez Allen, right tackle Marcus Gilbert was signed to a new long-term deal tying him to the Pittsburgh Steelers for the next several seasons. Gilbert’s deal came after two strong efforts in the first two preseason games. He was perhaps the team’s best lineman during the exhibition efforts. Since […]
