On the Steelers; What Keeping Four Wide Recievers Means

A lot of experts are calling this season for the Pittsburgh Steelers a ‘transition’ year and they may be right in the end, but after cut-down day yesterday the real transition may be in the approach on offense. With the Steelers choosing to keep just four wide receivers and four tight ends on the active roster, …

‘Legendary’ Might Be a Stretch for Steelers Defense in 2012

This week in a very nicely written column by Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Pittsburgh Steelers’ safety Ryan Clark said the defense was “striving to be legendary.” I think I speak for all of the Steelers Nation when I say “legendary would be great.” Unfortunately, I don’t think this a defense that is in …

On the Steelers; The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Buffalo

Anytime you see a score of 38-7 you think, “man, what a blowout!” Let’s remember however this is the preseason and that in the instance of first team vs. first team it was really only 14-7 so keep things in perspective my friends. Obviously, the biggest news is the worst news from last night as …

Steelers’ training camp week one; Reading the tea leaves

One of my favorite expressions and an easily over-used cliche of mine is ‘reading the tea leaves.’ I really believe in the days of 24/7 media and sports hype, people often say or do things that are not quite on point so we are left to decipher exactly what they are getting at. Thus, we …

2012 Pittsburgh Steelers training camp roster throwdowns: defensive line

www.gamedaygoods.com

  While many of us out there in the Steeler Nation use the term, ‘Steel Curtain’ to describe our defense, in my opinion there will always be just the one of the 1970′s. Mean Joe Greene, LC Greenwood, Ernie Holmes and Dwight White will forever be linked to that name and rightfully so. Part of …

2012 Pittsburgh Steelers roster throwdowns: linebackers

There is no comparison whether I am biased or otherwise when it comes to linebackers. There is no team, I repeat, “no team,” in the National Football League with a richer history of great linebackers than the Pittsburgh Steelers. Lambert, Ham, Russell, Lloyd, Kirkland, Greene (Kevin), Harrison, Woodley, Farrior, and so on… I could certainly …

2012 Pittsburgh Steelers training camp roster throwdowns: cornerbacks

It’s the position that can make a good defense a great one and the position that can make a good defense look like Swiss cheese. The Pittsburgh Steelers head into 2012 with questions at cornerback and veteran Ike Taylor is a part of those questions in my opinion. As we move from back to front, …

Fans of every sport go through it. It’s that period of time just before your favorite teams’ season is about to begin. There’s the feeling of potential success. Is this my team’s year? Will we finally be able to stay healthy? Can our superstars produce in the clutch? These are few of the dozens of …

On the Steelers; A preview of the defensive position breakdowns

Yesterday I brought you a preview of the offensive position battles we at SA expect to see as training camp unfolds in less than a month. Today, I’m shifting to the defense where key battles at corner, nose tackle and inside linebacker are sure to be among the most hostile. Nose Tackle Often the red-headed …

Keith Butler has no guarantee of being next Steelers DC

Steelers linebackers coach Keith Butler has been with the team since 2003, and in that time has elevated himself to what most consider as the next defensive coordinator when “Coach Dad” Dick Lebeau decides to retire. Lebeau is on his annual 1 yr deal with the Steelers and will continue to sign annual contracts for …
