Warren Sapp Says Steelers Defense Still “Old And Slow”

It seems as if NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp is not a big fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers and their defense.  Sapp drew the ire of Steelers fans back in 2011 when he called the defense “old and slow.” Sapp was asked Wednesday on NFL Total Access if he’d still call the Steelers defense “old and slow,” and Sapp didn’t hesitate to take another shot. “Old and slow?...

Nick Williams Looks To Become The Next Brett Keisel For The Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers love to take defensive ends later in the draft and develop them into starters in their 3-4 defense. The team drafted Aaron Smith in the fourth round of the 1999 draft and then Brett Keisel in the seventh round of the 2002 draft. Both turned into two of the better 3-4 defensive ends in the league with their ability to be dominant against the run and still apply...

Poor Conditioning Wasn’t the Only Excuse for the Steelers Last Season

If you listen to any of the interviews following the Steelers recent official team activities or OTAs, one of the common themes was the new approach to conditioning. I think I speak for a lot of Steelers’ fans when I say that this will be very welcome especially if it leads to fewer injuries.
