Why Did the Steelers Waste $26 Million on Cortez Allen?

Cortez Allen will be an awfully expensive nickel back Monday night when the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Houston Texans at Heinz Field. The Steelers agreed to pay Allen 520 million nickels, or $26 million, over the next five years. But because of his lackluster performance this season, Allen has lost his starting job to Brice …

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 …

Pittsburgh Steelers Can Re-Sign Jason Worilds Without Any Painful Cuts

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ salary-cap noose, which had been tight enough to choke even the most pencil-thin neck, is a whole lot more comfortable now that the NFL has increased the cap to $133 million. That’s $10 million more than last season and nearly $7 million more than the projection. This is the Steelers’ biggest stroke …

5 Mistakes the Pittsburgh Steelers Must Avoid During the 2014 Offseason

The Pittsburgh Steelers have a lot of decisions to make between now and the start of training camp. If too many of those decisions are the wrong decisions, they’ll be no better than a .500 football team for the third year in a row in 2014. Kevin Colbert, Mike Tomlin and the Rooneys can get …

Pittsburgh Steelers Must Find a Way to Re-Sign Jason Worilds

Just a few weeks ago, it looked like the Pittsburgh Steelers couldn’t afford to keep Jason Worilds in 2014. The 25-year-old Worilds becomes an unrestricted free agent after this season. In his first three seasons, the outside linebacker had just 10 sacks. Considering their salary-cap constraints, it seemed like a no-brainer for the Steelers to …

The Future Of The Defensive Line Will Be More Clear After The Draft

Although the Pittsburgh Steelers have spent two first round picks in recent years on defensive linemen in Ziggy Hood and Cameron Heyward, there is a ton of uncertainty going forward on the defensive line. I have suggested that the team could draft another defensive lineman early in the 2013 NFL Draft and have mostly gotten …

Pittsburgh Steelers Should Re-Sign Cornerback Keenan Lewis, Even if Cortez Allen is Ready to Start

Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers are handcuffed by the salary cap, they have to find a way to re-sign Keenan Lewis, who had a breakout season as a starting cornerback in 2012. Or do they? Second-year cornerback Cortez Allen showed in the final two weeks of 2012 that he could push for a starting job …

Antonio Brown Deserves His Share of the Blame for Pittsburgh Steelers’ Disappointing 2012 Season

There will be plenty of time to look ahead at the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2013 season. This Steelers offseason is going to be about a month longer than we’re used to, and even a week longer than last year, when the Steelers at least got into the playoffs before losing in the first round. If we …

Wallace’s Post-Game Comments Just the Beginning?

It may seem like a decade ago, but it really was just this past summer and entire preseason where Pittsburgh Steelers’ wideout Mike Wallace sat out in a contract dispute with the team. Wallace certainly didn’t do himself any favors with the fan base, but I think in general, many fans understood what Wallace was …

Among the interesting moves, they will go with 4 WR’s and 3 QB’s. There was wide speculation that they may go with 5 receivers but David …
