Steelers Defensive Coverage Stats Versus Titans – Week 6

Below are the coverage stats for the Pittsburgh Steelers following their Thursday night loss to the Tennessee Titans. While the completion percentage was a manageable at 57%, the defense did not do a good job tackling after the catch as the Titans had 106 in YAC with 20 coming on the final completion to tight end Jared Cook with Steelers linebacker James Harrison in coverage. Not shown is the pass interference calls on Ike Taylor, which were pretty big plays to say the least. These stats show quarter, down and distance and liner of scrimmage as well. The passing touchdown allowed was charged to Taylor.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.

    After watching the first five weeks of defensive calls it appears that the run gaps consistently have one gap left open either the A or B and the line backer that is usually responsible for that gap IF the nose tackle is slanted to the other side is 5 or 6 yards off the line of scrimmage instead of in the hole. Secondly, it appears that those blitzes that come up short of pressure don’t seem to be overloading the same gap but are spaced more towards filling the gaps like a run blitz. So this tendency got me thinking, is it that poor of execution by the players or is LeBeau over thinking what the opposition is doing or may possibly do especially in the fourth quarter. It seems he is prone to calling something new blitz wise instead of recalling what has been working at least partially during the first three quarters. Anyone else noticing anything similar tactically?
