Ryan Shazier Gives Pittsburgh Steelers High Hopes for 2014 Season

Can The Pittsburgh Steelers Rely On Only Three Running Backs?

How Does Maurkice Pouncey Compare to Great Pittsburgh Steelers Centers of the Past?

How much does Maurkice Pouncey mean to the Pittsburgh Steelers? One woman’s face said it all. When Pouncey went down after David DeCastro’s wayward block in last year’s season opener, it was an emotional punch to the gut for the Steelers and their fans. Pouncey was taken off the field on a flatbed cart, and even the driver couldn’t detach herself from the gloom and doom of...

Chuck Noll’s Teaching Skills Helped Change Steelers History

Chuck Noll’s death on Friday at the age of 82 was hardly a surprise. He had been in poor health for a number of years. But couldn’t he have had just one more Father’s Day? Noll was more than just a football coach. Unlike many of today’s NFL coaches, he wasn’t working 18-hour days and suffering heart attacks and mini-strokes because of it. He had other interests. He was...

Grading the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2013 Draft a Year Later

The meter is running on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2013 draft class. At a time when the Steelers need immediate contributions from their rookies because of all the holes in their roster, even more will be expected from their second-year players in 2014. Pundits have handed out letter grades like candy to each NFL team’s 2014 draft. Those grades are about as useful as kindergarten...

How Much Would Expanded NFL Playoffs Help the Pittsburgh Steelers?

Most fans don’t want expanded NFL playoffs. And Roger Goodell doesn’t care. Principal Goodell tried to ram expanded playoffs down everyone’s throat for 2014, but the matter wasn’t voted upon at the owners meetings in Atlanta. Expanded playoffs are coming, though, probably by 2015. So enjoy one last year of the NFL as we know it. Because in 2015 it won’t be the same. Six...

Pittsburgh Steelers: Are Martavis Bryant and Ben Roethlisberger Compatible?

Super Bowl-winning quarterback, 32, height-weight proportionate, seeks tall wide receiver who’s down to earth but has a high vertical leap. Must have amazing hands to fulfill my red zone fantasies. I like long walks along the Allegheny River, no-huddle offenses and clean pockets. I love to travel, especially to Cleveland, Cincinnati and Baltimore. I work hard and play harder...

Pittsburgh Steelers Pull Rare Surprise, Repeat History by Drafting Ryan Shazier

Raise your hand if you seriously thought the Pittsburgh Steelers would draft Ryan Shazier after the first 14 picks were made in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft. Didn’t think so.

What Were the Pittsburgh Steelers Thinking Drafting Dri Archer?

Dri Archer? Really? The Pittsburgh Steelers punctuated a 51-pick wait Friday night on Day 2 of the 2014 NFL Draft to take this guy? The Steelers used their third-round compensatory pick, No. 97 overall, on Archer. The 5’8″, 173-pounder from Kent State has been listed as both a running back and a wide receiver. Archer was the fastest player at the NFL Scouting Combine, blazing...

Top 11 Remaining Cornerbacks on Pittsburgh Steelers’ Radar in 2014 NFL Draft

Many a shoe was thrown against a wall Thursday night when the Pittsburgh Steelers passed on cornerback Darqueze Dennard and chose Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft. And when Dennard went to the hated Cincinnati Bengals at 24, those shoe-chucking Steelers fans threw their other shoe against the wall. Ike Taylor just turned 34 and is on the...

The Steelers are more likely to trade down from the No. 15 pick than trade up. They don’t have their original third-round pick. They have a third-round compensatory pick , but those picks can...

Pittsburgh Steelers Should Not Trade Up in First Round of 2014 NFL Draft

The Pittsburgh Steelers have their highest pick in the NFL draft since 2007, but two of the players at the top of their wish list probably will be off the board at No. 15. Cornerback Justin Gilbert led the Big 12 in 2013 with seven interceptions and 123 interception return yards. Wide receiver Mike Evans led the SEC with 12 touchdown receptions last season and averaged 20.2 yards...

2014 NFL Draft: Pittsburgh Steelers Must Do a Better Job Drafting Cornerbacks

The Pittsburgh Steelers aren’t the only team that passed on Richard Sherman in the 2011 NFL Draft. However, that’s not the only mistake they’ve made when it comes to drafting cornerbacks since Mike Tomlin became head coach in 2007. As Sherman would say, their cornerback crop during that time has been “mediocre.” It’s been a factor in the erosion of a defense that allowed...

Perhaps Ben Roethlisberger is on to something when he expresses his desire for a tall wide receiver. Eight of the NFL’s top 10 in receiving yards in 2013 stood at least 6’3″. Antonio Brown and DeSean Jackson, both 5’10″, were the only exceptions. Of the 13 players who caught at least 10 touchdown passes in 2013, including tight ends, nine measured at least 6’3″.
