2011 Steelers Play Direction Stats Report After 2 Weeks


Only 2 games are in the books so far so it is hard to draw any hard conclusions from the play direction stats below. The thing that jumps out though on offense is the short passing game numbers versus the deep passing numbers as the Baltimore Ravens and Seattle Seahawks were concerned about Mike Wallace beating them deep. The Steelers have been able to work the short areas nicely with all four receivers for the most part. Going forward, the Steelers need to be able to run the ball better against teams that choose to keep the safeties deep and guard against the explosive play.

As far as the defense goes the Steelers have only been tested 8 times deep. Both the Ravens and Seahawks chose to mostly work the short areas in the passing game to no surprise. The rushing defense numbers should come around as Ray Rice and Ricky Williams were responsible for most of these numbers.
