Steelers LB Vince Williams Leaves Chiefs Game With Hip Injury

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Vince Williams has left Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs with a hip injury and he’s questionable to return. Williams had two sacks in the game prior to leaving the game and four total tackles. Williams was replaced at inside linebacker by Tyler Matakevich. The Steelers…


Vince Williams Not To Blame For Sunday’s Run Defense

It would seem to me that inside linebacker Vince Williams has been pretty heavily criticized this season, the first in which he has entered the starting lineup for the Pittsburgh Steelers on a full-time basis. In his fifth season, he has stepped into the buck linebacker role since Lawrence Timmons…


Vince Williams Tweets Apology To Steelers’ Nation

The Pittsburgh Steelers played a sorry game today. In turn, one linebacker is saying sorry. Taking to Twitter shortly following the team’s 30-9 blowout loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, Vince Williams apologized to Steelers’ Nation. I apologize to #SteelerNation we must and will play better. You guys deserve better from…


Vince Williams Tells Fans Don’t Jump Back On The Bandwagon

There were plenty of fans who jumped ship on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ following the anthem controversy in last week’s loss to the Chicago Bears. The loss, of course, didn’t help ease any anger either. But with the Steelers rebounding with a big win over the Baltimore Ravens, and taking control…

Steelers Vs Bears Missed Tackles Report

Sunday’s game at Soldier Field was one of the ugliest one’s I’ve seen from the Pittsburgh Steelers in my time as a fan, dating back to 1995, when I can first remember Steeler football becoming a serious part of my life. Against the Chicago Bears, the Steelers simply didn’t show…


Film Room: Danny Smith Adding Wrinkle To Kick Coverage

Unfortunately, we’re probably not going to hear much from Danny Smith this season. There’s only one Coordinator’s Corner interview per week and we’re likely to hear from Keith Butler and Todd Haley throughout. So when we can jump on special teams, we will. The special teams unit has been strong…

Starting Nod Not Changing Steelers’ Special Teams Roles

It was assumed we wouldn’t be seeing much of Vince Williams on special teams this year. You could assume the same about T.J. Watt, especially if you knew that he was going to play practically every snap on defense. Or even Anthony Chickillo once he got the nod for an…


Steelers Vs Browns Positional Grades

It was far from aesthetically pleasing, but the only thing that matters is that the Pittsburgh Steelers hung on late for a 21-18 win Sunday afternoon at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland over the Browns to start the season 1-0. Following each regular season game this season, I’ll take a shot…


Dime Packages Only Increasing Steelers’ Versatility

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense doesn’t need to play man-to-man coverage 90% of the time. They don’t need to run a 4-3, 3-3-5, or move Ryan Shazier to safety. The key to their success, beyond obvious bullet points like a strong pass rush, is to be a varied defense. I think…


Film Room: Butler Adding Wrinkle To Fire X Blitz

The Fire X blitz is a tenet of the zone blitz made popular by Dick LeBeau. Even with him gone, Keith Butler has kept it and a wide array of fire zones. As any good coach should do, he’s taken it a step further and added wrinkles. Those were on…
