Steelers Cornerbacks Bringing A New Dynamic To The Table

By Cian Fahey Prior to last season, I wrote that Keenan Lewis would add a new dynamic to the Steelers defense, even though he wasn't a full-time starter, Lewis did do that playing the outside position in the team's nickel defense. What I didn't realize at the time was that Lewis was only the first step in a certain revamping of the Steelers' style. Over the past...

Limas Sweed Still Having Trouble Catching On With Another Team

It is extremely tough not to root for wide receiver Limas Sweed, who was originally drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the second round of the 2008 NFL draft. The Steelers gave the 6 foot, 4 inch receiver out of Texas every opportunity to shake his demons since they drafted him, but they finally were forced to part ways with him last season as he had problems staying on the field...

Steelers Could Have To Wait A Little Longer To Get David DeCastro Signed

The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed seven of their nine draft picks thus far and while their third round pick, linebacker Sean Spence, is expected to sign sometime this week or next, it could end up being a little longer before first round pick David DeCastro is under contract. According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the hold up is likely because of a wait to see which...

Poor Linebacker Play In 2011 Likely Culprit For Inflated Tackles For Ryan Clark

Pittsburgh Steelers free safety Ryan Clark had a great statistical season last year as far as tackles go. He was in on 100 tackles total with 71 credited to him as being of the solo variety, where he was the primary, or in some cases, the only player involved in making the stop. Both of those numbers were career highs for Clark, but that is not necessarily such a good thing though...

Steelers projected 53 man roster for 2012

The draft is over.  There has been some time to take a look at the roster.  The Steelers could make another move or two but they really will not be forced to.  If they want some depth at a position or are looking to bring in competition it is possible but with the salary cap the way it is that may not make money sense.  Someone else would get cut to start the season. This team...

2012 Pittsburgh Steelers Projected Starting Lineups

Offense Quarterback – Ben Roethlisberger: Out of all the people that liked what the Steelers did in the draft, no one liked it as much as Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers need Big Ben to stay healthy down the stretch this season or else they’ll likely face another early exit in the playoffs. Running Back – Isaac Redman: With Rashard Mendenhall likely out for at least the majority...

Steelers post draft position breakdown: Tight Ends

The tight end position for the Steelers is one of those things that every fan screams for more use of every year but we never seem to get our prayers answered. Each year we wonder if the offense will finally feature more use of the tight end in the redzone or on 3rd down, but deep down inside we know it’s not going to happen. It’s just not what the Steelers do. Now with new offensive...

Prime Nine: Best Year For Ben Roethlisberger In 2012?

By Jeremy Hritz With the egress of Bruce Arians and the addition of Todd Haley, the Pittsburgh Steelers will be lining up opening night against the Denver Broncos with a new offense that apparently is so complex that Ben Roethlisberger labeled it the Rosetta Stone. While nobody has ever accused Ben of being a rocket scientist, the seasoned veteran should not have any issues in assimilating...

Jared Wickerham/Getty Images North America According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter via Evan Silva, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace isn’t going to sign his restricted free agent tender anytime soon. “Not going to sign that restricted free agent tender anytime soon. May be awhile before they see Wallace,” said Schefter. I’d be surprised if Wallace even shows up for...

Reflections on O’Donnell and Super Bowl XXX

During the off-season, we at steeleraddicts are looking back at memorable moments in Steelers’ History as well as some we may not want to remember at all.   There are times when I think about it that it seems almost surreal. And to think that it was in 1996 makes it feel stranger and makes me feel older. Super Bowl XXX was surreal on a couple of levels because the Pittsburgh Steelers...
