Steelers 2011 Pre Season Play Direction Stats Report


Sure it\’s only preseason and the stats are pretty much useless, but they are fun to look at nonetheless. Below are the Steelers preseason stats rushing and passing stats through the first 3 preseason games that are broken down by offense and defense for your viewing pleasure. They include direction, number of plays, average gain and the NFL rank in the preseason for each. These stats will be part of the weekly post-game content you can look forward to this preseason on the site.

The only thing that sticks out in these meaningless stats is the deep middle passing by the offense where the Steelers rank 3rd in the league in deep middle passes and 3rd in the league in average gain.

    The stat I like is the pass offense currently ranks better than the run defense and that is without Taylor and McFadden. Let’s hope Lake has been working with McFadden on his fundamentals. I know it’s preseason, and I know the D-line will step up its run stopping during regular season, but with how much teams like the Falcons threw on us it seems our young inexperienced backs stepped up and did an above average job. Might actually be something to look forward to in the passing game.
