I’m sure Bengals linebacker James Harrison is excited to face off against the Steelers this week, since he played his entire career in Pittsburgh up until this year. What’s really interesting is that Harrison believes that center Maurkice Pouncey is the Steelers’ best offensive player. Unfortunately though, he’s done for the season after tearing his ACL and MCL. “They lost their best offensive player they had in Pouncey,” Harrison said via ProFootballTalk.com.

When the fourth quarter ended last Sunday, an 8-8 season seemed delusional, as if that mark was far beyond the reach of the talent of the Steelers. What seemed more realistic was a record south of 8-8. If the...

With the outside linebacker position in a bit of a downslide over the past few seasons, Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau reportedly is allowing his defensive line to do more getting after the quarterback, rather than merely collapsing the pocket in pass rushing situations.
It appears that the onus will continue to be on the defensive line to...
Pittsburgh Steelers right guard David DeCastro will make just the sixth start of his young career Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals, and it will mark the second time that he faces defensive tackle Geno Atkins in what figures to be a key matchup to watch in the game.
In the Week 16 meeting last year, Atkins certainly got the best of the Steelers first-round draft pick, who...

My full breakdown of Pittsburgh Steelers center Kelvin Beachum versus the Tennessee Titans.
Run Block/Pass Block: 4/3
- 1st and 10, 14:51 1st. TE eligible with David Paulson to his right. Pass protection with Paulson releasing. Loses balance, fails to stay square vs inside spin from Derrick Morgan. But a nice job getting back into...

The Pittsburgh Steelers have officially ruled out running back Le’Veon Bell for this week’s game against the Bengals.
This isn’t a surprise since Bell is expected to miss another month before he’s able to get back on the field.
Isaac Redman will get his second straight start. He needs to step up after a horrible performance last week against the Titans.

The Pittsburgh Steelers appear poised to get more use out of their defensive rookies than they have in a long time tonight as they take on James Harrison and the Cincinnati Bengals. One of those young defensive players will be Harrison’s replacement, and the team’s first draft selection this year, outside linebacker Jarvis Jones.
There have been reports that...
