Replacing A Championship Roster – Chris Kemoeatu To Ramon Foster

The Pittsburgh Steelers have experienced an uncommon amount of roster turnover over the last few seasons, which just so happened to coincide with consecutive years without a postseason berth.

Kevin Colbert’s Recent Offensive Line Drafting is Coming Home to Roost

A good football team begins up front and it requires an offensive line that works as a unit and can communicate flawlessly. This does not currently describe the offensive line of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The guy responsible for the mess that is this current offensive line is Kevin Colbert. Prior to coming to the Steelers in 2000, Colbert was the head scout for the Detroit Lions....

Takeaways from Round-by-Round Value Grades of Pittsburgh Steelers Drafts

To the casual fan, it might not seem like a big deal that the Pittsburgh Steelers have been awarded a compensatory sixth-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, as Pro Football Talk reports.

Grading the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Round-by-Round Value in the 2005 and 2006 NFL Drafts

Remember 2005 and 2006? More people were using MySpace than Facebook, banks didn’t need bailouts and Bill Cowher was still the Pittsburgh Steelers coach. The 2005 and 2006 NFL drafts were the Steelers’ last two under Cowher, and they continued to stock their roster with players who would contribute to Super Bowl teams. Three months after winning Super Bowl XL, the Steelers drafted...

Steelers move to cut Chris Kemoeatu has been a disaster in 2012

The Pittsburgh Steelers made a tough decision in the offseason to cut longtime offensive guard Chris Kemoeatu, but it may have been the worst decision made in the offseason thus far. The Steelers have decided to go with the youth movement in drafting offensive guard David DeCastro and offensive tackle Mike Adams in the 2012 draft. Mike Adams was supposed to eventually replace offensive...

2012 Steelers training camp: Is Willie Colon the next Chris Kemoeatu?

So one of the big stories in camp, as if there weren’t enough already, is the return of Willie Colon and of course his move to guard from tackle. If you’ve been following any of the chatter coming out of camp so far one of the things you’ve noticed is all the scrapping going on. Mike Tomlin likes this kind of intensity in camp, it shows the players care about what they’re...

Offensive guard: So many possibilities for the Steelers to explore in training camp

It’s more than a safe guess that the battle for the starting guard positions on the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line this year is going to be one of the best battles we’ll have seen in a long time. With so many question marks surrounding Sean Kugler’s group this year (and really for the last several years), there is finally cause for some real optimism about who is going...

NFL News: Steelers cut James Farrior, Aaron Smith and Chris Kemoeatu

The Pittsburgh Steelers that Browns fans have come to despise as a rival will undoubtedly look different next year. After parting company with long-time receiver Hines Ward earlier, now the Steelers have cut bait with 10-year linebacker James Farrior. It only makes sense for the Steelers to get younger and Farrior was due just over $2.8 million in 2012. In addition to Farrior and...
