Steelers vs Eagles Film Review: Lawrence Timmons

On a night on which nearly every player performed below expectations, it’s difficult to cull much positivity, particularly on the defensive side of the ball, from the Pittsburgh Steelers’ loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday. The first-team defense played a full three quarters of the game, and allowed 31 points in the process, including […]

Steelers vs Eagles Film Review: Ryan Shazier

Rookie inside linebacker Ryan Shazier had an impressive debut in week two of the preseason in a performance that raised already high expectations for the Pittsburgh Steelers’ first-round draft pick. Last week’s test against the Philadelphia Eagles saw Shazier come back down to earth a bit, though he did say after the game that stamina […]

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. Normally, with a draft class of that size, it’s seemingly inevitable that at least one […]

Steelers vs Eagles Film Review: Cameron Heyward

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward emerged as one of the team’s key players on the defensive side of the ball last year, but he hasn’t quite been able to continue the pace he set for himself last season thus far. Through three preseason games, his play up to this point has in general been […]

Brett Keisel’s Inclusion On Defense May Be Gradual

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel is getting his first taste of football of the year this week. He was dressed for Thursday night’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles without having taken even a single practice rep. Of course, he didn’t play in the game either. The last time he was involved in football activities […]

Steelers vs Eagles Film Review: Jason Worilds

There’s something about the Pittsburgh Steelers that drives many of their fans to become amateur scouts of sorts, seemingly more than most teams, at least in my experience. They record the games and re-watch them on their own so that they can be informed with first-hand accounts of player performances. From what I’ve gathered, however, […]

Marczi: 53-Man Roster Prediction – Third Preseason Game Edition

After having reviewed the tape from the Pittsburgh Steelers’ third preseason game, here are my predictions for the 53-man roster as it currently stands. Note that the last several spots can change dramatically in the final preseason game, which is often largely dedicated to eking out those last few roster spot battles. Quarterback (3): Ben […]

Steelers vs Eagles – Second Half Notes And Observations

Below are my notes and observations upon reviewing the second half of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday. Steelers’ first-team offense in against the Eagles’ reserve defense. Quickly forces a third and nine. Markus Wheaton’s 10-yard reception kept the drive going.

Steelers vs Eagles – First Half Notes And Observations

Below are my notes and observations upon reviewing the first half of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday. On the third play of the Eagles’ opening drive, Jason Worilds was turned inside, providing a clean lane for LeSean McCoy. While Ryan Shazier nearly got to the play, he couldn’t put forth […]

Shaun Suisham’s Troubling Preseason Continues

Shaun Suisham is coming off a season in which set a career-high in field goal percentage, connecting on 30 of 32 attempts at a rate of 93.8 percent. That just edged out his debut season with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010, during which he made 14 of 15 field goals in the final seven games […]

Eagles Offense A Tough Task For Ill-Prepared Steelers Defense

Even though the Philadelphia Eagles may have lost their first two preseason games, that hardly means that they were not a significant challenge for the Pittsburgh Steelers, particularly when it comes to trying to stop their up-tempo offense. And even though the third preseason game is supposed to be, by tradition, the ‘dress rehearsal’ for […]

Steelers Secondary Must Find Less Hands-On Approach To Covering

All in all, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ cornerbacks got off to a reasonably good start last night before their hands-on approach to the position began drawing the ire of Ed Hochuli, whom the clock operator learned is not somebody you want to get angry. As the Philadelphia Eagles worked their way down the field on their […]

Antonio Brown Shows Why He Is Indispensable To Steelers’ Success

On a night in which there was little to take comfort for the Pittsburgh Steelers, there was still one hallmark of consistency in the ever-present smile of Antonio Brown, the team’s only All-Pro player from a year ago. As the starters on both sides of the ball continually struggled, there was Brown continually working, trying […]

Picture At Wide Receiver Still Fuzzy Heading Into Preseason Finale

For all the talk and attention that has surrounded Pittsburgh Steelers second-year wide receiver Justin Brown, there has really been very little to show for it when you turn on the preseason footage. Brown went without a catch—perhaps even without a target, without having been able to fully review the game yet—last night in the […]

Bell, Blount Serve As Tomlin’s Beasts Of Burden

A day after getting into legal trouble for possession of marijuana, Pittsburgh Steelers running backs Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount were punished, in a sense, by playing well into the fourth quarter of a blowout defeat in the third preseason game by the Philadelphia Eagles. Head coach Mike Tomlin said after the game that he […]

Steelers Knee-Jerk Reaction – 15 Sacrifices To The Turk

The Pittsburgh Steelers have now made it through three preseason games, so that means the next major date on the NFL calendar is Tuesday—the day rosters must be trimmed down to 75. For Pittsburgh, that means saying goodbye to 15 players. As has frequently been the case over the last several seasons, the Steelers will […]

The Pittsburgh Steelers receive the ball to start the second half after the Philadelphia Eagles dominated the second half, both on  the field and on the scoreboard, as Pittsburgh trails 17-0.

Steelers vs Bills Film Review: Vic So’oto

Nobody has made more key plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers during this preseason so far than outside linebacker Vic So’oto, a fourth-year former undrafted free agent on his sixth different team. But it’s largely been rookie Howard Jones receiving most of the headlines for picking up the fumbles that the 27-year-old has created. In the […]

Steelers vs Bills Film Review: Terence Garvin

It’s almost remarkable to think about how far Pittsburgh Steelers second-year linebacker Terence Garvin has comein about a year and a half. While he may not be a starter, he seems assured of a roster spot just a year after having had to earn a place on the 90-man offseason roster by participating in the […]

Steelers vs Bills Film Review: Wesley Johnson

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie offensive lineman Wesley Johnson didn’t get a chance to play much in the preseason opener against the Giants, considering the second-team offensive line played nearly the entire game. Only with a few snaps toward the end did some of the third-string linemen get an opportunity to play, and frankly I took little […]

Too Early To Determine Impact Of Steelers RB Arrests

As seemingly everybody has been made instantly aware, Pittsburgh Steelers running backs Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount have been arrested after admitting to possession of marijuana, which reportedly amounted to 20 grams. Bell, behind the wheel of his Camaro, was also charged with DUI for the incident. The latter was taken to the hospital to […]

Steelers vs Bills Film Review: Steve McLendon

Pittsburgh Steelers nose tackle Steve McLendon was once a fan favorite—back when he was a longshot undrafted free agent reserve. Now that he’s in the starting lineup, he’s quickly lost favor with many. Granted, much of that has to do with the belief that he doesn’t have the size to play effectively as a nose […]
