Win Over Texans is a Start, But Issues Remain for the Steelers

The ball bounced and it bounced and it ricocheted off one guy and then another and when it finally came to rest it was in the hands of Pittsburgh Steelers’ reserve tight end Michael Palmer. The on-sides kick had failed and the Steelers had their fourth victory of the season. As Head Coach Mike Tomlin has often said, style points do not matter in the NFL and he is absolutely right...

SCB Steelers Wrap-Up; Steelers Beat the Texans 30-23

Let’s not put too much lipstick on the pig here because if you take away the three minute barrage by the Steelers to end the first half, they didn’t play all that well. The end didn’t come until the Michael Palmer fell on the Texans’ on-sides kick but finally the Steelers had their win. -Credit Dick LeBeau who made his best in-game adjustments of the season after getting...

Backup tight end Palmer finding role with Steelers

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Steelers backup tight end Michael Palmer is making the most of his limited opportunities. Palmer caught his first touchdown pass of the season in last week's 17-9 win over Jacksonville, the only time Pittsburgh's offense found the end zone all day. It was Palmer's fourth career score and first with the Steelers. He spent the first three seasons...

Steelers Red Zone Woes Are Rooted in Play-Calling

The age-old debate about football coaches and players when it comes to plays being successful or not comes down to the execution of the players vs the play-calling by the coach. There are always times where you can clearly see a lack of execution. It happens because guys just don’t remember their job or because the guy across from them is simply better on that play. The job of...

Steelers survive defensive struggle for much needed victory over Jaguars

After last week’s depressing last-second loss to Tampa Bay at Heinz Field, the Pittsburgh Steelers 17-9 victory over Jacksonville on Sunday may not have been the exact therapy fans were hoping for against a team that entered Sunday with an 0-4 record and was starting a rookie quarterback in Blake Bortles, but it was sure better than a second-straight loss to a winless team from...

Steelers’ 2014 Training Camp Battle Report: Tight Ends

Much like we could with the report on the quarterback position, we can pretty much pencil in the top two guys at the tight end spot. Heath Miller will be your starter and Matt Spaeth will be his back-up. The only question regarding Miller is whether or not he can return to the form he displayed prior to his severe knee injury late in the 2012 season. Miller showed flashes at times...

Steelers Camp Preview: Will anyone challenge Heath Miller at TE?

The Pittsburgh Steelers are going into camp this year with six tight ends on the roster. Heath Miller has been one of the most underrated players in the NFL his entire career. Matt Spaeth, when healthy, is a solid number two player. Spaeth (87) and Miller (83) will likely be the TE tandem for the Steelers this season Heath and Spaeth being 100 percent healthy is a storyline this...

Steelers Have Just Over $1 Million In Salary Cap Space Following Signing Of WR Lance Moore

Now that the contract numbers for new Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Lance Moore are in, we should have a real good idea as to how much salary cap space the team currently has with 68 players under contract. Following the contracts being signed by Moore, Arthur Moats and Michael Palmer, the Steelers should be roughly $1,051,934 under the cap as of right now after displacement...

Steelers TE Michael Palmer Contract Update

I have an update on the one-year contact signed last week by Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Michael Palmer. According to NFLPA records, Palmer did indeed sign for the veteran minimum, but he didn't receive a signing bonus. His contract, however, is still a qualifying contract and he will only count $570,000 against the salary cap. So what does this mean? Basically, the Steelers...

Steelers 2014 Salary Cap Space Update Pending Lance Moore Contract Numbers

Now that the Pittsburgh Steelers have re-signed tight end Michael Palmer and added former Buffalo Bills linebacker Arthur Moats to the roster on Monday, the team of course has used a little more of their available salary cap space. Prior to re-signing Palmer, the team had $2,174,434.00 in available cap space per the NFLPA. If you factor in that both Palmer and Moats both signed one...

Michael Palmer Signing Could Put The Pressure On David Paulson

Steelers Re-signing Of TE Michael Palmer On Friday Shouldn’t Affect The Draft One Bit

The Pittsburgh Steelers re-signed unrestricted free agent tight end Michael Palmer on Friday and many believe that move now rules out the team drafting a tight end in the 2014 NFL Draft.
