Steelers 2018 7-round mock draft: Pittsburgh makes stunning Day 1 trade

There’s always a lot of wheeling and dealing that happens at the NFL draft, but the Steelers aren’t usually a part of it. They might make some trades in the later rounds, but they’ve only traded up in the first round twice this century. They moved from 27 to 16 in 2003 to get Troy …

Morgan Burnett will try to restore Steelers’ tradition at safety

The torch has been passed to Morgan Burnett. What torch is this, exactly? It’s a torch that was first carried by Ryan Clark, who the Steelers signed in 2006. In eight years with the Steelers, Clark helped them win Super Bowl XLIII and reach Super Bowl XLV. When the Steelers moved on from Clark in …

10 players on the Steelers’ radar at the NFL scouting combine

The NFL scouting combine is always a special time of year for Steelers fans. It’s when we can see Steelers scout Mark Gorscak on the NFL Network instructing prospects who are about to run the 40-yard dash. The Steelers’ 2018 offseason came a lot earlier than expected, but the sight of Gorscak is always a nice …

Steelers’ win over Packers is a familiar refrain

Here we go again. That sentence was thrown around verbally, mentally and musically Sunday night during the Steelers’ more-thrilling-than-it-had-to-be 31-28 win over the Packers at Heinz Field. The Packers took a 14-6 lead in the first quarter, and regained the lead in the third quarter when Brett Hundley threw a 55-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams …

Steelers rout Titans, provide reminders of LeBeau Era

Who knew that a Dick LeBeau defense would be the first to allow the Steelers to score 30 points in game this season? Not only did the Steelers break the 30-point barrier for the first time, they reached the big four-oh, beating the Titans 40-17 Thursday night at Heinz Field. After scoring 20 points in …

Six former Steelers we didn’t know were still in the NFL

How many times have you heard an NFL player’s name and thought to yourself, “I didn’t know he was still in the league.” It turns out there are plenty of former Steelers who are now toiling in obscurity for other teams. It’s not like the Steelers made a mistake letting any of these guys get away, …

Dolphins 30, Steelers 15: Steelers full report card

Where have we seen this before? Once again the Steelers laid a big egg against an NFL weakling, falling to the Dolphins 30-15 Sunday. Unless the Dolphins (2-4) really are as good as the Steelers made them look Sunday, this will be the fifth straight year the Steelers (4-2) have lost to a team that …

Six takeaways from Steelers’ 24-16 win over Bengals

The Steelers defeated the Bengals 24-16 Sunday on a relatively peaceful, if rainy, afternoon at Heinz Field. With Vontaze Burfict far outside Pittsburgh’s city limits, a shouting match between Antonio Brown and Karlos Dansby was about as heated as Sunday’s game would get. It was so civil, in fact, that one of the teams could have …

Steelers need strong rookie seasons from Sean Davis, Javon Hargrave

The Steelers confirmed in Friday night’s 27-14 preseason win at New Orleans that their offense is primed for the 2016 season. The defense still could use a little work, but the good news is that the Steelers could be getting their biggest rookie contribution on that side of the ball in 15 years. Third-round pick Javon Hargrave …

Five Steelers facing make-or-break seasons

Several Steelers are fighting for roster spots with three preseason games remaining. These five players aren’t necessarily in danger of being cut, and at least one of them is virtually assured of being on the team beyond 2016. But these players, who all have been on the team for at least two years, are at a …
