Haley Says Terrell Watson Is Carving Out Role As Short-Yardage Back

Terrell Watson, the definition of an afterthought as training camp began, now sees the ball on some of the game’s most critical plays. “Nightmare,” as he’s been dubbed by Mike Tomlin, has been used as the third-and-short back this season. He’s been perfect. Three third down carries. Three first downs….



Terrell Watson Has Successful Cameo As Short-Yardage Back

I don’t know about you, but I found it to be quite an interesting moment in the middle of the second quarter of yesterday’s game for the Pittsburgh Steelers when the coaching staff elected to remove Le’Veon Bell from the game, replacing him with Terrell Watson for the purpose of…


Tomlin, Steelers Bungling Up Kick Return Situation

There are plenty of unfair, or at least debatable, criticisms of Mike Tomlin. Not being a good X’s and O’s guy (that one has always been pretty dumb), having unprepared teams, yadda yadda. One underrated, but certainly valid, criticism though is the mess the team has made time and time…


Roethlisberger Admits Watson Benefited From NFL Having Preseason Games

Ahead of this year’s Pittsburgh Steelers training camp getting underway, not many people would have bet that running back Terrell Watson would have ultimately made the initial 53-man roster. That, however, ultimately happened as the Azusa Pacific product and former undrafted free agent turned a strong preseason showing into a…


Tomlin Still Sorting Through Returner Options Ahead Of Opener

The Pittsburgh Steelers first regular season depth chart of 2017 was released on Tuesday and if you’re like me, you were probably surprised to see rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster listed on it as the team’s top kickoff returner. In fact, it was also somewhat surprising to see cornerback Artie…


Steelers Continue Tradition Of Carrying Big Running Backs

They are the giant sequoia of the NFL. The Pittsburgh Steelers certainly have traits they look for at certain position. Big, fast receivers. Long, physical corners. And running backs who look like they could play linebacker. The latter is the focus today, Pittsburgh’s final 53 man roster confirming what we…


Steelers 2018 Scheduled Free Agents Following 2017 Final Cuts

The Pittsburgh Steelers now have their initial roster set for the 2017 season and while it might undergo a quick shuffling prior to their regular season opener, now is as good as time as any to take a look at the players currently under contract who are set to become…


Knile Davis’ Release Cuts Against Grain Of Colbert’s History

History says free agents signed by Kevin Colbert before June 1st are all but guaranteed to make the team. Knile Davis found out he was exception. He joins Kevan Barlow as the two pre-June 1st signings (historically, when the compensation calculation ended) not to make the team. Justin Hunter could…





Steelers Vs. Panthers Preseason Week 4: 10 Offensive Players To Watch

The Pittsburgh Steelers will close out their 2017 preseason schedule Thursday night on the road against the Carolina Panthers and while several of the team’s more established players are certainly unlikely to see much, if any, action in this contest, there will still be several other younger players worth keeping…
