Will Allen’s Future Could Be Waiting On Troy Polamalu

With the Pittsburgh Steelers’ recent re-signing of free agent wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, they have now reunited with five of their top free agents this period, though they also ended up losing two of them, one to free agency, and another to retirement. There are still a couple that they may be calling upon again […] Will Allen’s Future Could Be Waiting On Troy Polamalu...

Steelers 2014 Player Exit Meetings – S Will Allen

End-of-season player exit meetings are not something that we are often privy to as outsiders of the football world. Generally, we only get a glimpse into that world when a player is asked by a reporter how the meeting went, if the player is willing to discuss it. Still, it’s not generally a hard concept […] Steelers 2014 Player Exit Meetings – S Will Allen is a post from:...

According to the eye test, Arthur Moats could already be a solution at outside linebacker

(Credit: https://cdn3.vox-cdn.com/) As the release or re-sign period of free agency gets underway, the Steelers have several decisions to make on a numbers of players, including, but not limited to: Brice McCain, Antwon Blake, Will Allen, Troy Polamalu, and Arthur Moats. I saved Moats for last for a reason. Given the dire situation at outside linebacker, Moats is a must to re-sign...

Pittsburgh Steelers position review: Secondary

The Pittsburgh Steelers finished the 2014 season with an 11-5 record. The Steelers finished first in the AFC North but were bounced out of the playoffs in the first round. Pittsburgh, who is normally known for their Steel Curtain defense, was mainly an offensive juggernaut in 2014. The Steelers had the 18th best defense in the NFL, which is way lower than Pittsburgh’s defense normally...

Positions of Need Cornerback Ike Taylor is done, as a free agent going into his age 35 season, after struggling in 2013 (98th out of 110 eligible cornerbacks) and missing 11 games with injury in 2014. They gave Cortez Allen a long-term contract in the off-season, but he struggled mightily before being benched and could be cut after just one year, a move that would save them 1.58...

Why the Steelers Need to Draft a Safety

During and since the 2014 season, there has been no lack of criticism for the Pittsburgh Steelers secondary. It has been well documented that they desperately need to upgrade their defensive back personnel and even team president Art Rooney II said as much in his press conference last month.The focus has mainly been on the cornerbacks, which include aging free agent Ike Taylor,...

Steelers Offseason Focus: Upgrading the Secondary

Ask just about any Steelers fan what the team’s #1 issue was last season, and nine times out of ten they’ll tell you unequivocally that it was Pittsburgh’s pass defense. Despite piecing together a number of misfits and castaways to form a serviceable unit near the season’s end, the Steelers secondary was clearly the weakness of the team, from preseason until their wild card...

With this Offense, a Championship Turnaround not Impossible for Steelers

Following the Steelers loss to the Ravens I’m not as down in the dumps as some fans. I thought that the Ravens were a beatable team, but I didn’t really believe this Steelers squad had what it takes to win a Superbowl. I saw an offense that struggled to keep up without Le’Veon Bell, and a defense that did their best but just doesn’t have the talent to really be a very good...

Steelers vs Bengals II Film Review: Will Allen

Steelers Playoff Berth Due to Many Different Sources

After two-straight 8-8 seasons, I was pretty convinced that’s what was coming again in 2014 but I couldn’t be happier to have been wrong. There are of course the usual suspects to give credit to for this 11-5 season and AFC North Championship. We can start with the “Three B’s” Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell and add in guys like Cameron Heyward and...

SCB Steelers Wrap-Up; Beat Bengals 27-17 for AFC North Crown

The story of the game is no doubt the loss of Le’Veon Bell in the third quarter. A hyper-extended knee is the early diagnosis and with the Steelers playing Saturday night, his status will clearly be less than 100%. Anyway, here are my thoughts on as the Steelers and Bengals unfolded. -NBC opening had a number of players NOT in the playoffs. Interesting… -Ben Roethlisberger reportedly...

SCB Steelers Wrap-Up; Steelers Break Playoff Drought By Beating Chiefs

It certainly wasn't pretty at times but the Pittsburgh Steelers are headed back to the AFC Playoffs. A very efficient game by Ben Roethlisberger and more "bend but don't break" defense led the way. Here were my thoughts as the game developed. -Excellent opening drive by the Steelers but you have to score touchdowns. Kicking field goals just isn't acceptable when you have a suspect...

Everyone Practices!

It hasn’t been a great season for the defense. An already-shaky unit only faced more adversity as players they rely on left with injury, one after another. The team’s last two first round picks, linebackers Jarvis Jones and Ryan Shazier, have missed most of the season. Troy Polamalu, the ever-present former superhero, has been replaced by Will Allen, who might as well be his...

Breakdown of Willie Gay vs. Tennessee

Willie Gay has taken on a bit of a leadership role for a Pittsburgh Steelers defense that has been banged up this season. At the start of the year Gay was listed as the nickel corner in Dick LeBeau’s 3-4 defense, but an injury to Ike Taylor and poor play from Cortez Allen has thrust Gay into the No. 1 corner role for a resurgent Steelers team that has found itself in second place...
