Steelers 2010 Sack Analysis & Blame Totals


As we enter the final week of the season, I thought we would have a look back at the 41 sacks the Steelers have given up this season. The tables all should be self explanatory and the links in Sack #/Game # column link to individual pages where you can see animated gifs of each sack that are also linked to the replay video on NFL.com. Some of the sacks blamed on Roethlisberger might be able to be blamed on scheme or coverage as well, so keep that in mind. Let me know any you disagree with and I will look at my notes and review the blame. The S in the package denotes QB in the shotgun.

    Nice Analysis. It will save me a lot time.

    People this takes a lot of time to do. We have had our differences but I appreciate anybody who puts in the time, and you certainly do.

  • NWebster

    Stuck by how many – relatively – go to Pouncy. Think it’s odd that most Centers are usually accountable for far fewer than the tackles – yet here’s our ROY candidate Center, overrated maybe?
