Breaking Down the Steelers Team Needs: Part 5, Running Back

Breaking Down the Steelers Team Needs: Part 5, Running Back

Part 5 of the series. Should Pittsburgh look for depth, or a change of pace weapon? Article No. 5 on ways the Steelers could improve what should have been a championship caliber roster. After articles on the Corner, ILB and Edge classes we’re going to shift focus over to the offense for once. There aren’t a lot of holes on this side of the ball but RB may be the clearest. Consider: the Steelers drafted Jaylen Samuels in 2018 to be the #3 guy behind Leveon Bell and James Conner. With Bell gone he became the #2, leaving a roster spot that could be improved. Here is the current...
When it comes to the Steelers, time to beat the character drum again

When it comes to the Steelers, time to beat the character drum again

As the 2019 NFL Draft season, and free agency, slowly approaches, character should be a priority for the Steelers. One of my first columns here at BTSC argued that the front office did well to give significant weight to character during the draft process. I suggested that the essential trade of Martavis Bryant for Mason Rudolph was brilliant, and a harbinger of good things to come. I suggested that we have a bevy of young players who, while they don’t spend their days polishing their halos, seem by every account to be stand-up guys- James Washington and James Conner, T.J. Watt and Terrell...
Disappointment aside, Steelers’ last two draft classes offer reasons for optimism

Disappointment aside, Steelers’ last two draft classes offer reasons for optimism

Things may be down right now, but the Steelers’ last two draft classes offer a glimmer of hope. The 2018 season is in the books and - BREAKING NEWS - it was disappointing! I won’t rehash the litany of reasons as to why. The protests about our inability to beat weaker teams, protect late leads and our reluctance to part ways with everyone from Mike Tomlin to James Conner’s barber have been repeated ad nauseam. Throw in the fact that Antonio Brown is behaving like a child, Ben Roethlisberger is receiving mail from AARP and we still don’t have a three-down linebacker, and the amount...

Pittsburgh Steelers injury report: Antonio Brown amongst three significant inactives

Bengals at Steelers inactives: Antonio Brown out; James Conner in

The Steelers won’t have their All-Pro receiver against the Bengals. The Bengals and Steelers have announced their inactives. For Cincinnati, the following players are out today: LB Vontaze Burfict CB Tony McRae OL Cedric Ogbuehi TE Jordan Franks DE Kasim Edebali RB Quinton Flowers WR Hunter Sharp No real surprises here, as Vontaze Burfict (concussion) and Tony McRae (hamstring) had already been ruled out. With Jordan Evans being placed on injured reserve this week, that means Cincinnati’s already-thin linebacker group is even thinner, which is why undrafted free agent Chris...
Predicting the Steelers’ Week 17 inactive list vs. the Bengals

Predicting the Steelers’ Week 17 inactive list vs. the Bengals

It’s wouldn’t be unheard of for the Steelers to do a few unexpected things with the 46-man active roster to end the season. This was supposed to be the most difficult inactive list to predict this season. All seven spots should have been filled with players being rested for the playoffs. Instead, the regulars will be in the lineup. But will some guys toward the bottom get shuffled around just for the sake of getting a look at someone else? Game Status Doubtful: LB Vince Williams(toe) Questionable: WR Antonio Brown (knee) S Sean Davis (quad) RB James Conner (ankle) Roster Move K Chris...

Steelers Week 17 injury report: Vince Williams doubtful, Antonio Brown, Sean Davis and James Conner questionable

Steelers Week 17 injury report: Vince Williams doubtful, Antonio Brown, Sean Davis and James Conner questionable

The Steelers look likely to be without at least one defensive starter on Sunday and could yet be missing some key names on offense against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17. While the Pittsburgh Steelers are heavy favorites for their last regular season game of 2018, their final injury report of the year does not make good reading ahead of a must win game. With Vince Williams officially listed as doubtful for Week 17 and Sean Davis, Antonio Brown and James Conner all listed as questionable, the Steelers could potentially be significantly shorthanded on both sides of the ball. #Steelers...

Steelers Injury Report: James Conner returns to practice as a full participant on Wednesday - ‘It’s getting better’

Although the Steelers saw five players sit out training on Wednesday, James Conner was not one of them. Even if the Pittsburgh Steelers end up playing their last game of the 2018 season on Sunday, there is still a chance fans will get a final opportunity to see James Conner in action one more time before the year is out. Although there were five players sitting out of practice on Wednesday, Conner was not one of them after he was able to take a full part in training for the first time since injuring his ankle against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 13. RB James Conner (ankle) was full...
