Steelers Learning Lessons From Second Half Surge Last Season

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had more than their fair share of years recently that could be divided just about right down the middle between good and bad. This started in 2009, when they once again got off to a 6-2 start. But injuries to key players such as Troy Polamalu and Aaron Smith, and a […] Steelers Learning Lessons From Second Half Surge Last Season is a post from: Steelers...

Steelers Coach John Mitchell Says He’s Not Going To Rush Rookie DE Stephon Tuitt

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive line coach John Mitchell might see a lot of Aaron Smith in rookie defensive end Stephon Tuitt, but after three weeks of OTA practices and two mandatory minicamp practices, he’s certainly not expecting him play like him right out of the chute. “I really like where Tuitt is.

Steelers John Mitchell On Rookie DE Stephon Tuitt: ‘I Think He’s A Young Aaron Smith’

Through the first six OTA practices, there haven’t been too many media reports about rookie Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Stephon Tuitt.

Rookies key for Steelers, but 2013 class not exempt

Everyone wants to know about the new guys. Will Ryan Shazier provide an inside pass rush and strengthen a weak run defense? Will Stephon Tuitt be the next Aaron Smith or the next Ziggy Hood? Will Dri Archer be able to outrun every defender on the field? Will Martavis Bryant be the tall wide receiver Ben Roethlisberger has coveted for so long? But there are more significant Steelers...

Why Pittsburgh Steelers fans should temper expectations about Stephon Tuitt

When the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Stephon Tuitt in the second round of last week’s NFL Draft, I sighed. Not because I think it was an awful pick, but because ESPN and NFL Network made it seem like the Steelers were getting the next Brett Keisel or Aaron Smith in Pittsburgh, which they aren’t. They got a player who played at one of the most decorated schools ever, Notre Dame...

We have now come to defense, and when talking about the greatest Steelers defenders of all time, things can get complicated.

Could the Pittsburgh Steelers turn to defensive line in the draft?

As you may remember, the Pittsburgh Steelers lost former first round pick Ziggy Hood to Jacksonville in free agency which may or may not, depending on how you look at it, leave the Steelers thin on the defensive line. The Steelers are still unsure about the status of Brett Keisel which leaves the Steelers with blossoming stud Cam Heyward and … Brian Arnfelt? Yeah, let’s look...

The Steelers Need To Start Playing Young Players Sooner Rather Than Later

The Pittsburgh Steelers have always been known as one of the better franchises in the NFL at developing their own players instead of paying for free agents. The team has never been afraid to say goodbye to ageing veterans such as Jason GIldon, Joey Porter and Alan Faneca to just name a few. There has always been a player behind these names who have been developing for a while to...

The 2012 Pittsburgh Steelers entered this season with questions as does every team in the NFL, but we knew this team was going to be different. I know I for one couldn’t believe that the losses of James Farrior, Aaron Smith and Hines Ward would affect this team as they have and I don’t...
