Pittsburgh Steelers 2014 Mock Draft: Full 7-Round Pre-Combine Predictions

Defense must be the theme of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2014 draft. They ranked 14th in the NFL in points allowed in 2013, their lowest since 2003, and 13th in yards allowed, their worst since 1992. The Steelers allowed 11 plays of 50 or more yards in 2013 after allowing three in 2011 and 2012 combined, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. They had just 34 sacks, their fewest...

Who Should Steelers Fans Root for in Super Bowl XLVIII?

So what are “Pittsburgh Steelers” and “Super Bowl XLVIII” doing in the same article title, you ask? The search engines will be more confused than Jarvis Jones was playing defense early in his rookie season. After three Super Bowl appearances in six years, the Steelers haven’t even won a playoff game in the last three years. Even when the Steelers aren’t in the Super Bowl...

Kickoff Returns Need Major Improvement For Steelers

Antonio Brown finished the 2013 season in the top four in both punt return yards and yards per return with one taken back for a touchdown. Unfortunately, the Steelers as a team didn’t have that same success on kick returns. Felix Jones, the Steelers top kick returner, finished 19th in both yards and yards per return in the NFL. Every once in a while the team put Emmanuel Sanders...

Pittsburgh Steelers Hire Mike Munchak, Convert a Rival

It wasn’t easy to watch Mike Munchak shaking hands with his assistants on that September afternoon after the Tennessee Titans had secured a Week 1 victory at Heinz Field. That wasn’t supposed to happen. Sure, few predicted the Pittsburgh Steelers would go 13-3 or 12-4 in 2013, but the Steelers weren’t expected to lose at home to a Titans team coming off a 6-10 season. It was...

Ranking the Pittsburgh Steelers 2014 Free Agents by Priority

Free-agent departures have become a rite of spring in recent years for the cap-strapped Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers have some hard choices to make, but there are some free agents they can’t afford to lose. We’ve ranked the Steelers’ top 18 unrestricted free agents, as indicated by Spotrac, in order of priority. The higher they rank, the more important it is to keep them...

Pittsburgh Steelers: 2013 Report Card for Defense, Special Teams and Coaching

No more pencils, no more books for the 2013 Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers did get some dirty looks from their fans during their second consecutive non-playoff season, and most of them came when they were on defense. These grades for the defensive line, linebackers, defensive backs, special teams, defensive coordinator and head coach won’t be worth hanging on a refrigerator...

The Steelers Have Decisions To Make On The Defensive Line

The Pittsburgh Steelers will certainly need improvement on the defensive line in 2014 if they want to get back to being stout against the run. The Steelers’ defense finished an uncharacteristic 21st in the league against the run and 13th in overall defense. The team could also lose veterans Brett Keisel, Ziggy Hood and Al Woods to free agency this offseason. That would leave only...

Pittsburgh Steelers: 2013 Report Card for Offense

The grades are in on the offensive side of the ball for the 2013 Pittsburgh Steelers. Although the Steelers were like a broken record in 2013, missing the playoffs for a second straight year and finishing 8-8 for the second straight year, the offense wasn’t the problem, at least not in the second half of the season. Here are our grades for the Steelers quarterbacks, running backs...

What Is The Future Of The Cornerback Position?

The Pittsburgh Steelers just finished a disappointing 8-8 season and missed out on the playoffs for a second straight year. Though the team ended the 2013 strong by winning six of their final eight games, missing the playoffs still makes it an unsatisfactory season. The offense got most of the headlines due to the perceived feud between Ben Roethlisberger and offensive coordinator...

Pittsburgh Steelers: Heartbreaking 2013 Season Makes It Hard to Look Ahead

There will be plenty of time to compose a wish list of prospects for the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2014 NFL draft. There will be plenty of time to bid farewell to the decorated veterans who inevitably will become victims of the Steelers’ annual salary cap purge. Right now, I’m just not ready to pick myself up after Sunday night’s letdown. Isn’t a team that’s 0-4 at the...

Pittsburgh Steelers Can Only Watch as 2013 Season Comes to Painful End

First, the Pittsburgh Steelers started the season 0-4. Then they were disgraced in New England. Then a three-game winning streak came to an excruciating end on Thanksgiving night in Baltimore. Then Antonio Brown stepped out of bounds against the Dolphins, foiling what might have been an Immaculate Reception for a new generation. None of that was enough to knock the Steelers out of...

Pittsburgh Steelers: All They Want for Christmas is Some Help to Make the Playoffs

The Pittsburgh Steelers not only defeated the Green Bay Packers Sunday, they also vanquished the Grinch. Unlike last year, the Steelers can keep a playoff berth on their Christmas wish list. In 2012, they were mathematically eliminated two days before Christmas with a 13-10 loss at home to the Cincinnati Bengals. To make the playoffs the Steelers (7-8) have to beat the Cleveland...

Pittsburgh Steelers Keep Playoff Hopes Alive With Wild Win over Packers

What a wild and wacky 2013 season it’s been for the Pittsburgh Steelers. They defeated the Green Bay Packers 38-31 Sunday to remain alive, but still not well, in the race for the final playoff spot in the AFC. The Steelers (7-8) must beat the Browns at home Sunday and have three other games go their way to make the playoffs, but who would have thought they’d have something to...

Pittsburgh Steelers 2013 Playoff Flowchart for Week 16

The Pittsburgh Steelers won’t have to face Aaron Rodgers Sunday in Green Bay, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Matt Flynn will start for the Packers in place of Rodgers, who will miss his seventh straight game with a broken collarbone. That gives the Steelers a boost in this game. It also improves their chances of making the playoffs. The Steelers (6-8) must win their...

Pittsburgh Steelers Beat Cincinnati Bengals, Show They Still Have Plenty of Fight Left

One thing’s for sure about the 2013 Pittsburgh Steelers. They don’t quit. They didn’t quit after starting the season 0-4. They didn’t quit after one of the most humiliating losses in their history at New England. They didn’t quit after last week’s loss to the Dolphins, their most heartbreaking defeat in the post-Tebow era. The Steelers kept their infinitesimal playoff...

Pittsburgh Steelers Can Lose to Bengals Sunday and Still Make Playoffs

I blame you, Steelers. It’s your fault my journalistic accuracy has been compromised this week. First, I wrote that a Dolphins win over the Patriots Sunday afternoon would mathematically eliminate the Steelers from playoff contention, regardless of what the Steelers do against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday night. That was wrong. Then I wrote that a Steelers loss to the Bengals...

Steelers’ Fans Need To Be Patient With Jarvis Jones

Going into the 2013 NFL Draft, I wasn’t too high on Jarvis Jones and was hoping one of the top guards would drop the Steelers in Chance Warmack or Jonathan Cooper. I didn’t really have a good reason to be down on Jones and was going more just on a feeling I had about him. Once the Steelers did draft Jones however, I chose to trust the front office and hope that I was proven wrong...

Pittsburgh Steelers Week 15 Scoreboard-Watching Guide

The 2013 Pittsburgh Steelers might be bleeding in a ditch, but they still have a playoff pulse. A loss at home to the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday night would officially pull the plug on the Steelers’ playoff chances, but despite a previous report in this space, the Steelers (5-8) cannot be knocked out of the playoff race before Sunday night. In our account of the Miami Dolphins...

Pittsburgh Steelers’ 34-28 Loss to Miami Dolphins Prolongs Agony of the Feet

Last week, Mike Tomlin cost the Pittsburgh Steelers a draft pick by sticking his foot inbounds. This week, Antonio Brown cost the Steelers any realistic shot at a playoff berth by sticking his foot out of bounds. That’s the kind of season it’s been. The Steelers trailed by six on the game’s final play when Ben Roethlisberger completed a pass to Emmanuel Sanders at the Steelers’...

Pittsburgh Steelers, Miami Dolphins Might Again Meet in Bad Weather

Can the Pittsburgh Steelers stop Mike Wallace Sunday when he returns to Heinz Field as a Miami Dolphin? If Ike Taylor continues to struggle, the speed that burned Steelers opponents from 2009 to 2012 could burn the Steelers in a game they must win to have any realistic chance of making the playoffs. Taylor might get a little help covering Wallace, however. And we’re not just talking...
