Ben Roethlisberger is probably allowed to run a quarterback sneak, even if he's not

Ben Roethlisberger is probably allowed to run a quarterback sneak, even if he's not

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is not only 6'5", he's the straw that stirs that drink in the Steelers organization. I'm pretty sure he could have gotten away with a quarterback sneak or two in Pittsburgh's playoff loss to the Jaguars on Sunday. Near the end of the third quarter of the Steelers divisional round playoff game against the Colts on January 15, 2006, Indianapolis faced a fourth and short and decided to send the punt team out. Quarterback Peyton Manning quickly waved the unit off and decided he was going to go for it. Manning's boss, Colts head coach Tony Dungy, mouthed, "You...

The Pittsburgh Steelers 2018 salary cap situation

The Pittsburgh Steelers 2018 salary cap situation

Do you think the Steelers are sitting pretty regarding their salary cap situation? Well, think again. The BTSC boards are erupting with fans upset and angry after a tough loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, but for me, it is time to look toward the future and set the past where it belongs. That future starts now with the offseason. Where better to start than looking at where the Pittsburgh Steelers sit regarding the salary cap? Before I get started, I feel the need to inform Steeler fans that Over the Cap has made changes. I’m not happy about the changes, as they’re leading to confusion...

Steelers Stock Report: Giving an exit interview for the 2017 coaches and players

Steelers Stock Report: Giving an exit interview for the 2017 coaches and players

Pittsburgh’s postseason came crashing down with a boisterous thud. We take a look back at the season and give our exit interviews. The best part—if you can call it that—of watching your favorite team’s season come to a close is the reckoning. The worst part is setting aside some of the acrimony and figuring out where to start. The Pittsburgh Steelers, two weeks after concluding the most successful regular season campaign of Mike Tomlin’s tenure, lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars 45-42 in the Divisional Playoffs, which was a result driven by poor coaching, even poorer defense, and,...

Bud Dupree is still waiting to hear about his 5th year option with the Steelers

Bud Dupree is still waiting to hear about his 5th year option with the Steelers

The former first round draft pick isn’t sure if the Steelers will be picking up his 5th year option on his rookie contract. It is safe to say Bud Dupree’ season didn’t really go as planned. After spending time with pass rushing specialists this offseason, and being healthy, Dupree had high expectations placed on him both by no just the Steelers’ coaching staff, but also the fan base. Most expected Dupree to be the player who could finally break the team’s drought of not having a player register double-digit sacks in a season. Dupree finished with six total sacks, and never missed...

Cam Heyward earns spot in Pro Bowl, but not the way he should have

Cam Heyward earns spot in Pro Bowl, but not the way he should have

The Steelers’ defensive captain earned a spot in the Pro Bowl, but not the way he should have. The Pittsburgh Steelers will now have 9 players in the 2018 Pro Bowl, and the number increased from 8 to 9 after Khalil Mack backed out of the All-Star game due to an injury, giving Cameron Heyward the green light to be a part of the yearly festivities. Steelers Cam Heyward added to Pro Bowl for injured Mack— Ed Bouchette (@EdBouchette) January 16, 2018 Good for Heyward, I know all fans who follow closely realized how cheap it was when he wasn’t originally selected to the Pro Bowl, but...

2018 NFL Free Agency: Pittsburgh Steelers sign CB Mike Hilton to one-year deal, sign 4 others

The Pittsburgh Steelers have locked up one of their best defenders in 2017 to a one-year deal, along with some offseason reserve/future contracts.

10 things I learned from the Steelers playoff loss to the Jaguars

10 things I learned from the Steelers playoff loss to the Jaguars

The Pittsburgh Steelers fell short of their ultimate goal, and I learned a lot throughout the process. The Pittsburgh Steelers fell short of their goal of a seventh Lombardi trophy, but as Mike Tomlin has repeated since 2009, only one team gets to hold up that trophy — and it wasn’t the Steelers, again. After a 13-3 regular season turned into the dud against the Jaguars, there was plenty to glean from the performance. After waiting a few days to let my blood pressure return to normal levels, I decided to put some thoughts into an article. If you are looking for a “Fire Everyone!!”...

Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak getting a second interview with Arizona Cardinals

The Pittsburgh Steelers could lose a big piece of their coaching staff. The Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Divisional Round of the AFC Playoffs, but they might be losing a big piece of their coaching staff as well. Offensive line coach Mike Munchak interviewed for the vacancy in Arizona, and the Cardinals were impressed enough they want to bring him back for a second interview. #AZCardinals are putting in 2nd interview requests today for their HC position, and #Steelers OL coach Mike Munchak is expected to receive one, sources tell me and @TomPelissero.

Steelers loss to Jaguars falls on Mike Tomlin, coaching staff and defense

Steelers loss to Jaguars falls on Mike Tomlin, coaching staff and defense

After a 13-3 regular season filled with promise and drama, the Pittsburgh Steelers laid an egg Sunday at home to Jacksonville. And the blame starts right at the top with Mike Tomlin. Where do I start? Is it even possible to pick one jumping point regarding Sunday’s humiliating 45-42 loss the Jacksonville Jaguars laid on the mighty men of steel? Is it fair to pick one talking point among a bevy of possibilities in front of us? I don’t know where to being, other than with the head coach in charge of it all. Say what you want about Mike Tomlin, he does things his way. Since he was hired,...

In a stunning change of direction, Martavis Bryant wants to stay with the Steelers

In a stunning change of direction, Martavis Bryant wants to stay with the Steelers

The Steelers’ wide out has decided he doesn’t want a trade after all, and would like to come back to Pittsburgh next season. In the latest “What the...” moment with the Pittsburgh Steelers, disgruntled wide receiver Martavis Bryant, who publicly stated he wanted out of Pittsburgh at season’s end, has had a change of heart. Yes, rather than wanting to force the team’s hand by holding out and requesting a trade, Bryant told reporters in the team’s “locker clean out” media session that he wants to return. “Yes, of course,” Bryant told Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh...

Breaking down the Steelers’ defensive breakdowns vs. the Jaguars in the playoffs

An expert shows a few examples of just what went wrong for the Steelers in their playoff loss to the Jaguars on Sunday. The eye in the sky never lies. This is certainly true for any sport, but especially for football. If you have never had the opportunity to watch football from the ‘All-22’ angle, the high angle which shows all 22 players on the field, you get to see every minor mistake and issue going on between the sidelines. After the Steelers 45-42 loss to the Jaguars in the AFC Divisional round, giving up 45 points to Blake Bortles and company means there were some major...
