Time To See If Randy Can Make Mettenberger Dandy

Even though I was a bit surprised to see the Pittsburgh Steelers claim quarterback Zach Mettenberger off of waivers from the San Diego Chargers on Wednesday, in the grand scheme of things, I probably shouldn’t have been. After all, being as it’s more than obvious now that veteran quarterback Bruce…

Steelers Spin: Analysis Of Preseason Week Three

The last significant preseason game is in the books with the Pittsburgh Steelers handling the New Orleans Saints handily by a score of 27-14. What was learned is the Steelers offense is Super Bowl worthy, its back-up quarterback is back in good graces with the fan base and the defense…


Film Room: Sammie Coates And Genius Of Todd Haley

Sammie Coates scored a touchdown. That is, if my records are correct, the first touchdown Coates has scored since training camp last season. He didn’t have one last preseason or in camp this year and was shut out the first two games. So it was nice to see him find…


Eli Rogers Practice Habits Basis For Successful Preseason

It’s been an tough-to-watch preseason for the Pittsburgh Steelers offense. But the one consistently bright spot has been Eli Rogers, coming off a four catch, 39 yard performance. He attributes that success to practice habits and a simple message instilled by the coaching staff. “Coach Todd always says, it’s just…


Steelers Film Room: Landry Jones’ Pick Six

Throw one interception and you’ll earn some jeers from Steelers fans. Throw four? In a half? I think they’re bringing back the Salem Witch Trials. Clearly a less than stellar day from Landry Jones and though several of them were a mixed bag of blame, the first interception – a…

Steelers Film Room: Eli Rogers Vs Lions

One of the stars and steady players of camp, Eli Rogers finally got to play in his first NFL game last Friday. It only took two years and a busted foot but the results were encouraging and very similar to what he showed in camp leading up to his debut….

Sammie Coates

National Media Also High On Steelers’ Coates

The Pittsburgh Steelers training camp is well underway and the pads are finally on. This has given the players an opportunity to show their physicality and football chops on the field, and thus provide exposure to the national media on how they are developing. One group in particular, the wide…

Steelers TE Jesse James: ‘The Pressure’s On To Succeed’

This time last year the Pittsburgh Steelers had consistency, experience and versatility at the tight end position. This year, it’s a position group that has a whole lot of youth and not much experience to show for it, especially with the recent release of Matt Spaeth. This leaves David Johnson…
