Winners and Losers from the Steelers final preseason game

The Steelers failed to score a point in their preseason loss to Carolina. Naturally, the offensive side of the ball is going to get called out a bit. Winners Jarvis Jones - If he didn't start the game (pregame graphics showed he did not), he took notice. Jones was a different player in this game. Physical, aggressive and working in great concert with defensive end Brett Keisel, Jones got pressure on multiple plays and was a force against the run. Lawrence Timmons - Excellent in coverage in the time he was in there, got in on a few plays, again, it seems the heightened point-of-attack...

Steelers using Eagles loss as a learning experience

The Pittsburgh Steelers were embarrassed in a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, but the players are using the performance as a learning experience for the regular season. By Dale Grdnic PITTSBURGH -- This is the 12th straight year that the Pittsburgh Steelers have ended the preseason schedule against Carolina or every year except Brett Keisel's rookie season in 2002. And it's probably been about that long since Keisel played extensively against the Panthers, who visit Pittsburgh Thursday night at 7:30 at Heinz Field. But Keisel could play extensively, since this is his first action since...

Steelers roster bubbles: Rookies Josh Mauro and Dan McCullers top Hebron Fangupo and Brian Arnfelt

The younger Steelers defensive linemen are winning out with just one cut to go for the 2014 roster. The Steelers defensive line position battles were the fiercest and most competitive of training camp. The selection of Stephon Tuitt in the draft and the signing of Cam Thomas in free agency provided a feeling of refreshed optimism. Those feelings may have faded a bit when veteran Brett Keisel was signed back last week - not so much suggestive the Steelers are ok putting an inferior player on the field, but more that one of the younger players could not justify their inclusion on the roster....

PITTSBURGH — Newly re-signed defensive end Brett Keisel turns 36 next month.

Brett Keisel isn't coming back to coach

The veteran was added to the Steelers' roster just in time to witness a defensive meltdown in its third preseason game. Keisel's aiming to help lead them and his performance on the field will do just that. The Steelers signed defensive end Brett Keisel almost as if they saw the arrest of two players, a complete on-field defensive breakdown and a somber note to the preseason coming. In the span of about 36 hours, running backs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount were arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and the Steelers' starters needed two drives against Philadelphia's back-ups...

Keisel signing a possible slippery slope for Steelers

The Steelers made things official on Wednesday when they announced the return of Brett Keisel to the club. Sentiment aside, JP thinks the move is 50-50 in terms of how it can help the Black and Gold. Breakups are never easy.  When you've spent 12 years in a relationship with somebody, splitting up can be difficult. For Brett Keisel and the Pittsburgh Steelers, both decided that they couldn't live without each other and got back together for at least two more years. Don't ya just love happy endings? After taking the off-season to collect himself, (and avoid having to go to training camp in...

Kaboly: What does the Keisel signing really mean?

The Steelers signed veteran DE Brett Keisel. OK, now what? How will they use him?
Brett Keisel is back, and the Nation was happy

Brett Keisel is back, and the Nation was happy

The glory of Da Beard is its own thing, but the impact of the beloved Steelers defensive end is more than that. Ultimately, it's ours. Da Beard. Steelers fans know exactly who I mean. He is beloved. He is admired. He is part of the heart and soul that makes up the Pittsburgh Steelers. He’s Brett Keisel. He’s not a native of the city of Pittsburgh but he’s among the governing body of Steeler Nation. This isn't going to be an article about how he was re-signed and how happy we are because he can mentor a group of young guys who need a leader like Brett Keisel. This is about celebrating...

Brett Keisel signing suggests Steelers want to add more depth on defensive line

The pace at which the average NFL offense works today all but mandates the inclusion of an extra defensive end. Keisel's signing may not cost a lineman a spot at all. Fresh bigs up front is critical to countering today's no huddle offenses. Finish off this paragraph: "Hey Cam Thomas, meet Brett Keisel. He's kind of a legend around here. Or at least his beard is legendary, but he's an incredibly popular player (note the 10s of thousands of views the article on him signing had Tuesday). It's not a knock against you so much that the team signed him, it's just that..." Is it Thomas? Is his...

Twitter reaction to the Steelers signing of Brett Keisel

A Steeler for 12 years since being drafted in 2002, Keisel briefly parted ways with the organisation over the summer. The fan favourite was recently resigned, predictably lighting up the Steelers corner of the twitter world. Literally hours after news surfaced Brett Keisel could be headed to the Arizona Cardinals to serve as defensive line depth, it has been announced he has reached an agreement to play with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2014. Da Beard decided to turn down the Cardinals in favour of coming back to the only team he has ever known since being drafted in 2002. Long a fan...
