Steelers Defensive Coverage Stats Versus Cowboys – Week 15


Below are the coverage stats for the Pittsburgh Steelers following their 27-24 overtime loss Sunday to the Dallas Cowboys.

The completion percentage of 71% is down right awful as is the 8.1 yards per attempt.

Josh Victorian was targeted 9 times and allowed 7 completions. I should note that a few were screens, but the yards after the catch, 42 to be exact, is something a Steelers corner should never let happen. It wasn\’t just Victorian either, as yards after the catch for the whole team was bad.

The Steelers will hopefully have both Cortez Allen and Keenan Lewis in the lineup this week against the Cincinnati Bengals. If they don\’t, I hate to think what A.J. Green might do against the likes of Victorian or Curtis Brown.

About Dave Bryan

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

    Man.. Victorian not only has the worst comp% but he allowed the most yds after catch as well.. that’s not good. Is he really that much better than Curtis Brown?? Atleast Brown can Tackle!

  • Pete

    Is Will Allen injured, dressed, inactive? Why is Golden playing instead of Allen?

  • steeltown

    im not sure what the reasoning was.. Will Allen has been playing great and Golden has almost no in-game experience, it doesnt make sense

  • steeltown

    He was active

  • Andrew Grigsby

    I wondered about Will Allen too why play Golden over him??,i didn’t get that either. Hopefully we can get some safety help in the draft next spring. Sure need it.

    Josh Victorian, Curtis Brown, and Robert Golden are at the 2002 Hank Poteat level…can’t cover or tackle and allows 1st downs on almost every 3rd down.

  • http://www.facebook.com/frank.mastalski Frank Mastalski

    Josh Victorian looked like 2002 Hank Poteat in that playoff game against the Clowns.

  • steeltown

    Im not really ready to pass judgement on Golden yet.. yes, he blew it on that TD, coincidentally his first play of the game, but he made some plays after that playing at the CB position. He is pretty raw and young, he could have potential as a backup Safety (maybe finally get rid of Mundy) Golden hasnt seen the field all season, except for ST. If he gets another year under his belt and still plays mediocre, then I’ll agree with you
