LaMarr Woodley’s Pass Rush Proved Effective On Right Side

By Matthew Marczi For the first time in his professional career, outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley started a game on the right side of the defense. While he did shift over to the left side here and there, he stayed put on the right side for the vast majority of the game—that is, when he wasn’t […]

Jason Worilds Takes Ownership Of Left Side

By Matthew Marczi Even though LaMarr Woodley returned from injury last week, Jason Worilds remained on the left side at outside linebacker for nearly the entire game.

Will Johnson Made The Most Of Limited Work Against Dolphins

By Matthew Marczi With the Pittsburgh Steelers spending the majority of the game with three wide receivers on the field, there wasn’t exactly ample opportunity for fullback Will Johnson to have much impact on the game.

Cody Wallace Not Overmatched In First Start

By Matthew Marczi It’s usually not a good thing when you’re forced to start your third different center of the season.

Cameron Heyward Puts His Stamp On The Defensive Line

By Matthew Marczi I suspect that I would not be met with much resistance at this point if I were to sing the praises of Cameron Heyward and the growth that he has seen since entering the starting lineup this season. I probably wouldn’t even get much of a fight if I were to claim […]

Steelers Versus Dolphins – First Half Notes And Observations

By Matthew Marczi First play for Cody Wallace: good. Second play: bad. More or less the summary of his first career start. All things considered, I take more positives away from it than negatives.
