For Sammie Coates, Conditioning Means Consistency

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said after the team’s second preseason game that one of the causes of some of rookie wide receiver Sammie Coates’ lapses has to do with his level of conditioning, given that he didn’t have to work as hard to get open and get separation…

Steelers Vs Jaguars Second Half Notes And Observations

Author’s Note: I’ve spent the better part of the past week nursing a pair of severe ear infections, a sore throat, and as I’ve deduced yesterday, a spider bite. As such it’s been difficult for me to get too in-depth on game tape during that time, hence why my work…

Kevin Fogg Not Being Outdone By Competition

In spite of much hand-wringing—justified, I might add—during the offseason about the Pittsburgh Steelers’ lack of action to bolster their secondary, the team does seem to have managed to assemble a pretty solid group of cornerbacks that will more than justify carrying six on the 53-man roster. That is a…

Jesse James Knuckled Up In Second Preseason Game

By all accounts, Pittsburgh Steelers rookie tight end Jesse James had a debut performance to forget last Sunday during the Hall of Fame game. While bearing a heavy heart and clouded mind due to the very recent death of a close friend, his on-field performance suffered significantly, flagged for two…

Alejandro Villanueva Making Himself Eligible For Different Hats

While trying not the oversell its significance, it was no doubt interesting to see that the Pittsburgh Steelers used first-year tackle Alejandro Villanueva as an eligible receiver during practice yesterday, and actually threw him a pass. Of course, it is worth pointing out at this time that Ben Roethlisberger actually…

Bud Dupree Has An Opportunity To Harness Pressure To Grow

I don’t know what got to Pittsburgh Steelers rookie outside linebacker Bud Dupree yesterday, or if it could even be pinpointed to just one thing, but something certainly set him off in practice yesterday over a period of several minutes in a situation that only resolved itself with head coach…

Numbers Game Always Had Jordan Zumwalt On Outside Looking In

Yesterday came the news that the Pittsburgh Steelers waived second-year linebacker Jordan Zumwalt with an injury, claiming linebacker L.J. Fort off waivers after he was released by the Patriots. In spite of the fact that, barring injuries, Zumwalt really had minimal chance to actually make the roster, the move was…

Steelers Offense Looking To Set New Tempo In 2015

By now it’s a far cry from stepping out on a limb for anybody to say that the Pittsburgh Steelers have the potential to break out in a big way on the offensive side of the ball in 2015. They have a wealth of talent at all of the skill…

Touted Lineman Training Camp Battle Falling Short Of Expectations

Soon after the draft, it seemed that we were promised what should have been an exciting training camp battle from the group of interior offensive linemen that the Pittsburgh Steelers brought in this year, but thus far, the group as a whole has without question been a disappointment. With incumbent…

Steelers WR Depth Chart Looking More Shallow As Games Wear On

When the Pittsburgh Steelers first opened training camp, it certainly seemed as though they were primed, once again, to be stacked from top to bottom at the wide receiver position, but that appears to be a less assured probability as we approach the midway point of the preseason. In 2014,…

Player Poaching Still The Exception, Not The Rule

You know you’re getting to the heart of the preseason when the dialogue begins over which players the Pittsburgh Steelers absolutely must keep on the 53-man roster or else they are certain to be claimed off waivers by any number of teams. This season, there seems to be a healthy…

Practice Squad May Have No Need For Linebackers In 2015

With the Pittsburgh Steelers seeming increasingly likely to carry a rare 10 linebackers on their 53-man roster this season, that likely means that we won’t have what has typically been a staple on the practice squad this year: the developmental linebacker. If the Steelers do choose to carry 10 linebackers,…

Steelers Appear Serious About Two-Point Conversions

Are the Pittsburgh Steelers really intending to be more aggressive on offense this season, going for two points after a touchdown with greater frequency rather than just settling for an extra point attempt from 33 yards out? The evidence is there to make the case. Obviously, the fact that the…
