Training Camp Expectations: Cornerback

In less than two weeks, we’ll be at training camp, watching the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 90 man roster roll through 14 practices and four games. There will be so much to learn, tons of things going on, so I want to lay out some of my expectations and hopes for each…

Ryan Clark Blames Talent Development For Secondary Struggles

Training camp is fast approaching now, and soon the offseason chatter will begin to fall always, but I would like to draw attention to an article back in April, in which former Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark talked to Chris Bradford for the Beaver County Times, in which he talks…

Show Me Something, Sean Davis

With spring drills officially over, I think we all understand that we’re all in for a long haul, six weeks in total, between the end of minicamp and the start of training camp. You know the drill. There’s little new information coming out during this period, so it serves as…

Steelers’ Marcus Tucker Enjoying Remarkable Journey To NFL

Marcus Tucker left the practice field, made his way to his locker, and cried. As a tryout player that almost certainly means one thing. Turn your playbook in to Coach. You’ve been, as Jake Taylor explained in Major League, red-tagged. But Tucker’s tears were not ones of sadness. They were of…

Film Room: Pittsburgh’s Rip/Liz Match

If you’re even faintly familiar with the Pittsburgh Steelers, you probably have a baseline level understanding of the kind of defense they play. Blitz heavy, prominently zone coverage looks. And of course, if you follow the team as closely as we do, you know their base look is Cover 3….

Now that we have completed our look at the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 90-man roster heading into training camp a bit under a month from now, it’s time to take a look back at the team’s 53-man roster from last year’s regular season, for the purpose of revisiting the contributions of the players…

Film Room: Keith Butler’s Box Calls

Boxes. They’re great things. They hold Christmas gifts, pizza, engagement rings. Defensive coordinators have boxes too. And they’re a great way to beat bunch concepts. The rules are simple. I learned them from the great Matt Bowen when he still wrote for National Football Post. Four defenders versus three receivers….

In the spirit of the offseason, Dave Bryan and I are undertaking the daunting task of ranking the top 100 Pittsburgh Steelers‘ history. And we mean the complete history. 1933 to today, they’re all on the table. Dave and I came up with our own lists and then worked together…
