Even as a valuable backup, would Mike Adams be considered a bust?

Heading into the 2015 NFL season, the Steelers have a very good left tackle and a decent enough backup tackle, who can play on both the left and right sides. Both players were picked in the 2012 NFL Draft and are now part of the Pittsburgh offensive line that’s considered on the rise, after years of very well documented struggles. However, considering where each player was drafted...

SCB Steelers Quick Hitters for May 21st, 2015

There are 111 days remaining until the Steelers play in New England on September 10th. When I started writing about the Steelers almost a decade ago, one thing I wanted to try doing was separating a player’s on-field play versus who they were off of it. Most of the time I succeed but I’d be lying if I were perfect. One guy I’ve been hard on is Mike Adams who has yet to live...

The Pessimist’s Take – Mike Adams: Future Starter?

Pittsburgh Steelers 5 Biggest Draft Mistakes Over the Last 5 Years

Mike Adams View image | gettyimages.com Adams is still with the team, but he’s atrocious.  I lose a lot of hope in the offensive line when Adams is inserted due to injury.  He’s a nightmare to watch when he pass blocks, as you can almost guarantee any decent pass rusher who lines up on Adams’ side will probably fare well against him.

Are Changes Coming to the Steelers Offensive Line?

Despite the loss to Baltimore in the AFC Playoffs, the 2014 season for the Pittsburgh Steelers was more successful than most of us had anticipated. I certainly didn’t see an 11-5 record and division title coming but I am just fine being wrong. One area that I believe was a bit over-hyped was the offensive line. For starters, the good faith we had in the unit after allowing less...

Steelers vs Chiefs Film Review: Mike Adams

Steelers’ Kelvin Beachum Having a Pro Bowl Worthy Season

The Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line was regularly referred to as the teams biggest weakness over the past decade, even when they were winning Super Bowls. The re-building of the line began in 2010 with the selection of Maurkice Pouncey in the first round. Since Pouncey, the Steelers also spent a 1st on David DeCastro, and two 2nd’s on Marcus Gilbert and Mike Adams. For a team...
