2017 Week 2 Steelers Vs Vikings Live Update And Discussion Thread – First Half

The Pittsburgh Steelers are soon to embark on their second game of the regular season, and when they do so, they will be facing a Vikings team without their top two options at quarterback with Sam Bradford inactive due to a knee injury and Teddy Bridgewater on the PUP list.

Still, they will at the least have to contend with a running game that looked potent last week with Dalvin Cook, and do so without Stephon Tuitt. The Steelers are 9-1 in home openers over the course of the past 10 years, however, so Mike Tomlin’s teams have a history of making the most of their first game at Heinz Field every year.

Other notable inactives for the Steelers are tight end Vance McDonald and safety J.J. Wilcox, with a back injury and a concussion, respectively. As a result of these inactives, we see Daniel McCullers, Brian Allen, and all nine linebackers active. Despite an extra offensive slot open with McDonald out, Justin Hunter still did not get a helmet.

The Steelers received first, with Terrell Watson fielding the kick short of the goal line and returning the ball out to the 26. On first down, Chris Hubbard was on the field as an extra blocker in 22 personnel. Le’Veon Bell received the first touch of the game, but was stopped up the middle after two yards. Xavier Grimble replaced Jesse James on second down. Bell showed some hesitation to get out to the 33 on second down, setting up third and three.

With three receivers now, Ben Roethlisberger faked an end-around to Martavis Bryant, hitting Grimble for the first down, but the offense was flagged for an illegal formation penalty. Now third and eight, Roethlisberger’s pass was incomplete, wide of Eli Rogers, ending in a three-and-out. Jordan Berry got off a good punt with a favorable bounce, with Mike Hilton and Darrius Heyward-Bey both covering the punt well, settling down out of bounds at the 26.

The Vikings’ first play of the game was a bubble screen to Cook for one yard. On second and nine, Cook got a good head of steam for about seven yards, but was stopped hard from there. On second and two, Case Keenum was able to find Thielen at the first down marker.

From the 36, Cook was able to get to the left edge for a small gain, but a holding call brought the play back. Now first and 20, T.J. Watt recorded a pass defensed, getting his left arm up in the pass rush. Good play from the rookie. He came off the left side. The Steelers sent a blitz against the run on second down, which was stopped for no gain. On third and 20, The Vikings settled for a draw run for nine yards and a punt. Rogers fielded the ball with a Vikings player right in his face for no forward progress.

Starting from the 22, James was back on the field after getting checked out from the first play of the game. Bell got the carry but was dropped at the line of scrimmage. He tried to bounce the second-down run outside, but was again stopped for no gain. On third down, the offense spread out five, completing to Antonio Brown, but just short of the first-down marker. I believe that was the first four-receiver set of the game. They lined up for the fourth-and-one play and got the Vikings to jump offside.

With a new set of downs, Bell punched ahead for four yards on first down. Roethlisberger looked deep for Brown on second down, well over his head, but Xavier Rhodes was flagged for pass interference, an obvious call. That is his second pass interference penalty drawn in the first 70 minutes of the season.

From the 38 of the Vikings, Bryant was this time given the ball on a reverse for seven yards. On second and three, Bell was able to work his way up the middle for four and the first first down of the game via an offensive play and not a penalty.

James Conner checked in and got the ball on a sweep, finding space for nine yards, checking back out after the one snap. Now second and one inside the red zone, Bell stutter-stepped for two yards and another first down as the offense began to find some rhythm. From the 17, a hold on James wiped out a three-yard run from Bell to push them back out of the red zone. Roethlisberger pulled up on a pass for James to hit Bryant further down the field, with the catch and run for the score. The Steelers lined up to go for a two-point conversion, but a delay of game penalty forced the offense off. Chris Boswell’s extra point made it 7-0.

Following a touchback, Cook got the carry on first down but was met by Watt and Cameron Heyward for a loss of four. On second and 14, he was lucky to gain one. Quickly third down and 13, Keenum’s pass was wide of his target with Joe Haden in coverage against Stefon Diggs. Rogers signaled for a fair catch at the Steelers’ 40 after a 37-yard punt.

Back with good field position, Bell caught an inside angle and picked up 11 yards, just his second run of double-digit yardage of the young season so far. After a false start on Alejandro Villanueva, however, he was dropped for a sack, Everson Griffen spinning inside the left tackle for a loss of seven. Now second and 22, it was Bryant this time drawing the pass interference call working against Trae Waynes, so both of the Vikings’ first-round starting cornerbacks have drawn a long pass interference penalty. Bryant was under the ball and looked like he would have caught it without the interference, setting up first and 10 in the red zone regardless.

The 49-yard penalty put the ball at the 12-yard line. Bell picked up six yards to the right on the first play in the red zone. On second and four from the six, it was Bell again, this time up the middle for about three yards. On third and one, it was JuJu Smith-Schuster taking the ball on a shovel pass for the touchdown, his first touch of his career resulting in a score. The Steelers have gone up 14-0.

From the 25 after a touchback, Keenum hit Wright for nine yards off play action. Ryan Shazier came up from coverage to hit Cook, keeping him just shy of the first-down marker. On third and inches, however, he was able to pick it up and move the chains.

From the 35, the rookie back was quickly met by Heyward after a gain of one. Diggs got the ball on a sweep, but was only able to add four. On third and five, checking into the dime, Keenum was able to find Kyle Rudolph for 12 in zone.

Across midfield, play action helped open Thielen for a gain of 24 across the field against Haden. Now from the 24, Keenum just launched one deep and out of reach against unblocked pressure from Watt. On second down, off play action again, a blitz up the middle chased the quarterback out and forced him to throw it away. Yet more pressure forced another throwaway, but a field goal did put the Vikings on the board at 14-3.

With a touchback from Watson, Bell was good for about two yards on first down. Looking deep for Brown in double coverage, Roethlisberger’s pass seemed to be misplaced. Now third and eight, he chucked it for Brown again, incomplete working against Rhodes. Berry’s second punt of the first half. Apparently Watt got injured on the coverage and headed into the locker room.

Vince Williams made the tackle for a gain of one on first down. At the 45, Mike Mitchell broke up a downfield pass with a shove in the back. Now third and nine, looking for Thielen, Artie Burns broke up the pass to force a punt. Bounced out of bounds at about the 11.

Bell was limited to two yards on first down. Jumping over a defender or two, he found room for 10 yards on second and eight. Under pressure, Villanueva hit Roethlisberger’s ankle and then was tackled by the ankle, slow to get up as he threw the ball away. Brown couldn’t hold on to the second-down ball. On third and 10, his pass for Rogers was high. heyward-Bey helped induce a fair catch on the punt.

Following a six-yard hitter on first down, Shazier’s run blitz helped the defense swarm the run for a loss of three. On third and seven, Bud Dupree was able to get off the left edge and chase Keenum down for the sack. Rogers called for a fair catch at the 11. In the meantime, rookie T.J. Watt was declared questionable to return with a groin injury.

Roethlisberger hit Smith-Schuster on a drag route on first down for three yards. From the 15, A quick pass to James gained four to set up a third and three. Following the two-minute warning, stacking Bell and Brown, Roethlisberger found Brown for the second time of the game to convert.

It was James across the middle of the field for 11 yards. James again for four. On second down, Roethlisberger had rushers hanging in him, but got the ball out to Brown. After a booth review, the rule on the field was reversed, deeming it a good catch, and a successful third-down conversion for the second time in a row.

From the Vikings’ 46, Roethlisberger looked for Brown again but Terrence Newman nearly intercepted it, resulting in the ball bouncing off the receiver’s face. Now second down, Roethlisberger looked deep for Brown, catching it, but this time clearly out of bounds. On third and 10, Roethlisberger had to get rid of the ball quickly as he was about to get hit, but Bryant was not down the field. Harrison Smith, the safety, was the nearest player. Heyward-Bey among others induced a fair catch at the nine.

The Steelers were flagged for 12 men on the field on first down. McKinnon was good for seven yards on first down, but they just ran out the clock.

    Yoi. Just got back to my hotel room and found out NFL game pass not available where I am at. Will have to rely on SNR and your comments to follow the game.

  • Greg Walker

    Any links where can I stream the game. ?

  • SteelersDepot

    well, this pregame drama was something. Really was excited to see the Steelers defense go against Bradford today.

    Any who, happy Sunday to all. Here We Go!

    Peace and love, peace and love to all of yinz today.

  • 6 ring circus

    What, did Joey Porter get ejected again, lol?!

  • Guest12

    They will rely on the run game even more now and with no Tuitt that may not be a good thing

  • Steelers12

    hope timmons ok for real

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    With Bradford out this game may be tailor made for McCullers to plug up the run up the middle.

  • John Noh

    Weird for him to be AWOL. Such a stand-up guy his whole career in Pittsburgh.

  • Steelers12

    something had to piss him off

  • Steelers12

    maybe a little more 4-3

  • John Noh

    Team says they know where he is. That’s good at least.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Steelers or Dolphins know where he is?

  • John Noh

    Phins

  • alevin16

    You know Timmons played for the Steelers for 10 years, maybe when he heard home game he got on a plane to Pittsburgh just out of habit. 😀

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Whatever we do I hope our defense is smothering.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    This wait killing me; do you think Vikings have something up their sleeve to lull the Black & Gold into thinking this is a gimme?

  • John Noh

    Or play Javon more than 25 snaps.

  • 6 ring circus

    Now the onus is going to be on the offense to get uncorked…

  • Ross McCorkle

    Once the game starts go on reddit and click on the gamethread. There will be some links to a stream there.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Thanks! Will give it a try

  • Frank Martin

    One report said he practiced with the Steelers this week because of the hurricane damage in Miami. If that’s true, it seems weird in itself.

  • Michael

    Ohly way find out is to WATCH the game, Grasshopper.

  • afrazier9

    Let’s go Steelers!!!!!!

  • DarthYinzer

    Go Steelers!
    Go browns.

  • alevin16

    I guess this will be a good chance to work on the man to man coverage if they dedicate the D to stop the run

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Thank you sensei!

  • 6 ring circus

    I saw that and said to myself – no way. I’m going to have to have some photographic evidence on that one!

  • Dorian James

    All right guys, good luck to our Pittsburgh Steelers, enjoy

  • Jaybird

    Bold prediction for today’s game: Grimble AND James both get TDs today.
    Enjoy the game everyone.

  • alevin16

    Good to see Nix in

  • Aj Gentile

    And we have one tight end

  • Hopper

    Audio on fox messed up? High pitched squeak driving me nuts.

  • Jaybird

    There goes my bold prediction

  • Michael Mosgrove

    jesse hurt already.

  • Aj Gentile

    My audio is fine

  • Michael Mosgrove

    come on.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Vikings sending the house early

  • Aj Gentile

    He has looked good

  • Steelers12

    Dupree ought to come out swinging, can’t let the rookie out do u

  • alevin16

    first

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Cam would have destroyed Cook there if he didn’t get held

  • Jeremy McClurg

    deShazier

  • RJ

    It’s so much easier to get first downs when you don’t commit penalties on 3rd down.

  • alevin16

    watt!!!

  • Aj Gentile

    Watt going already!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    So a 3rd string quarterback gets a 1st down when steelers offense can’t? 😩

  • michael young

    Agreed. Let that dude crack some skulls. We could use the toughness on offense.

    Side note: I’m thinking Nix might need a larger lid. I don’t know how he fits his dome in that helmet. It’s working overtime.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    He has really good awareness

  • Yeshaya

    Yeah… shades of puhlamalu

  • Yeshaya

  • ryan72384

    Come on offense. Show us a drive where you guys don’t look completely anemic and out of sync.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    lol

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Need a 6 TD game

  • NinjaMountie

    could steam or get sunday ticket

  • Michael Mosgrove

    we had heath in those games. not going to happen.

  • Aj Gentile

    ugh so do i

  • NinjaMountie

    Why…JJ seems capable of having multi TD games.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    They aren’t afraid of the pass. They’ve put 8 in the box on every play thus far

  • ryan72384

    Smh

  • Michael Mosgrove

    bell proving he wasnt worth the 12 mill plus so far.

  • Applebite

    Why is Haley calling for a Run with a stacked box?

  • Chad Sanborn

    No reason to be scared with the screens we throw

  • Jaybird

    What a dumb ass

  • ryan72384

    Lol

  • alevin16

    I never see that work, great to see it

  • Michael Mosgrove

    he is haley.

  • Michael

    What the Eff happened to the 2016 Le’veon Bell production here in 17′?

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Thank you Robeson!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    wow…that never works

  • Rob

    That won’t show up in the stat box

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Why doesn our offense always take like a month to work in the season?

  • Chad Sanborn

    that’s a first

  • michael young

    Clearly Robison has never watched a Steelers game. That hard count on 4th and 1 at our own 30 has never worked…..until today.

  • alevin16

    That’s a Flacco Special

  • Aj Gentile

    Thats clearly PI

  • Michael Mosgrove

    ben pretending he was dalton on that one. overthrew. by 10 yards. even without interference ab isnt THAT fast.

  • michael young

    Ask the o line. Ugh. No holes.

  • Yeshaya

    Worrisome that the side judge ruled it clean.

  • alevin16

    Ben with the amazing tackle

  • Yeshaya

    Yep

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Let her rip!

  • ryan72384

    Bryant seriously is jacked this year

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Ugh! The Ravens defense if really stout. I got two tv’s btw

  • alevin16

    It really seems like the Viking D has 15 men on the field, they swarm

  • Rob

    So fast

  • Michael Mosgrove

    because they dont get the rhythym down in preseason.

  • Jaybird

    Or we only have 10

  • Steel Realist PAul

    We are essentially watching Bell and Bryant work their way back into shape in live games

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Best run all season,,, by the backup

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    AB is making Rhodes look like a scrub already. Then again AB does that to everyone…

  • alevin16

    great point

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Conner earning his pay!

  • Yeshaya

    By crowd noise Conner is about 100 times more popular than Bell

  • ryan72384

    Lol I noticed that as well

  • Aj Gentile

    Thats a hold

  • Chad Sanborn

    kid can run. He’s a hitter

  • Jason

    thanks JJ

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    The Outlaw caught redhanded

  • Aj Gentile

    BRyant!!!!

  • alevin16

    Finally starting to click

  • Yeshaya

    Great drive.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Happy for Steelers and my fantasy team! Thanks Martavis!

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    Yeah!!! Way to go Bryant

  • Dorian James

    Not the two-point thing again LOL

  • Yeshaya

    We’re trying to set the record

  • alevin16

    mighty fast 45 second clock

  • RickM

    Totally agree. Only use it against sub-par teams, not strong D’s.

  • ryan72384

    Bryant in 3rd gear running away from the corner.

  • Yeshaya

    Yeah didn’t feel like it

  • Chad Sanborn

    That’s the Bryant we all remember

  • Mister Wirez

    Yoi… Delay Ben..

  • Yeshaya

    I’m ok with it, as long as we get more than 50% success

  • alevin16

    well no help from the Brownies

  • Bastiat

    That game clock wasn’t reset.

  • Chad Sanborn

    Did they reset the clock?

  • Yeshaya

    Esp with Pete Morelli, we can expect at least 30 yards of BS

  • 6 ring circus

    We need to “button up” these penalties…

  • Mister Wirez

    Glad they went for 1 after all.

  • Yeshaya

    Raisins up 7-0 btw

  • Bastiat

    No

  • Michael

    Missed it, Why was it 38 yd extra pt?

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    What happened with the play clock on that???

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I will take a 7-0 lead with happiness

  • Yeshaya

    I think you’re right, that seemed way too fast. But Morelli is a clock idiot we know

  • Rob

    Bryant definitely hasn’t lost his speed.

  • RickM

    Love the pass play. Get MB involved cutting to the middle of the field.

  • Agustin-ARG

    great playcall

  • Aj Gentile

    Delay of game

  • Shannon Stephenson

    delay of game penalty

  • Chad Sanborn

    The game clock debacle was a big mess up by the refs

  • Mister Wirez

    I’m streaming the Browns & Filthy birds on my tablet. Rookie holds ball to long. Suggs/Sack/fumble/eventual TD..

    Same old Browns

  • MP

    Let’s go D! Some Wattage-Sackage!!

  • NinjaMountie

    good job steelers!! now im all caught up

  • Steeler4Ever

    Tomlin has always been “pudgy” since a couple of years in Pitt, but man hes gotton a bit more this year you think?

  • ryan72384

    Exactly! Get him the ball moving forward not standing still on bubble screens

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    MCCullers strip sack, return recovered fumble 27 yards for a touchdown. Book it.

  • Steeler4Ever

    are they stacking the box, or is our off. line not run blocking well?

  • 6 ring circus

    Curious, what is your “book it” record, lol.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    lol

  • Steeler4Ever

    or maybe

    out of sinc with Bell….Hmmmmm

  • Dorian James

    0 for

  • Shannon Stephenson

    nope…cant be the reason cause Tomlin said so.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Just got to win one big.😉

  • Aj Gentile

    That must be some amazing blocking he gets

  • Chad Sanborn

    Ha! The big man running 27 yards is what i find hard to believe

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    Stacking the box. The line seems to be blocking well just too many people swarming. Connor is the better option right now. We need a power back to just keep bruising.

  • alevin16

    Is McCullers out there?

  • Dorian James

    Alright let’s go d

  • 6 ring circus

    Lol, true…I want mine to be the lottery!

  • Mister Wirez

    Watt is the real deal.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    The play would probably take 12 seconds to be completed

  • Michael Mosgrove

    3- 687

  • Mister Wirez

    Bring in Watson!

  • Chad Sanborn

    Great clarification on the game clock

  • Aj Gentile

    They would probably take a commercial break in the middle of the run back

  • alevin16

    Time to press the foot into the neck please

  • Pricopea

    Alualu is a beast

  • Mister Wirez

    Our “old corner” would’ve got beat there.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I like me some Haden

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    I’m fine with that as well lol. Let him smack some safeties =)

  • Dorian James

    Now now let’s not pile on LMAO

  • Mister Wirez

    Love him as a Steeler. He brings it every play

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    😂 that would be amazing

  • JNick

    Even without Tuitt, the Dline is feasting on this Vikings Oline.

  • Mister Wirez

    Word. 😁

  • Michael

    Thus far, better than both scrubs he replaced from past 3 seasons.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    their center is a rookie and he’s doing well so far this game.

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    Yeah, Alualu isn’t that big of a downgrade though. Just imagine if we had Tuitt lol

  • Michael Mosgrove

    another flipping penalty. big al gets a penalty and then gives up a sack.

  • RickM

    AV not looking great.

  • WreckIess

    Gotta throw that away

  • Chad Sanborn

    Finally a hole to run through

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    D jumped first, didnt they?

  • pdupuis

    Just in after mowing the yard, how are we looking.

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    Get rid of it…

  • Michael Mosgrove

    nah. al can not handle speed. period.

  • Chad Sanborn

    He had a rough game last week

  • Rob

    AV has seemingly not been very good so far this year at all

  • Chad Sanborn

    rough start for him

  • DarthYinzer

    Enough with the penalties dammit

  • RickM

    Great move by Griffin but yes, through 5 quarters it hasn’t been a good start. Hopefully he’ll get it in gear.

  • ryan72384

    AV single handedly sabotaging this drive

  • Steeler4Ever

    could be right, but the dude just made levon look bad too

  • NinjaMountie

    Bell kinda helped the rusher on that one lol

  • MP

    AV is a project wrapped in a project in a project.

  • Steeler4Ever

    that dude is quick, and thats AVs Crypto

  • ND_Steel

    Hurt?…big wrap on his arm.

  • Michel Smiffi

    Thanks Mr Villanueva…
    That’s what happens when you pay the fat guys.

  • gentry_gee

    Wish Bradford was playing. Wanted to see where he’s at and how the Steelers D would respond.

  • Rob

    As far as I can remember, he’s always played with that

  • Michael Mosgrove

    al can not handle speed. period.

  • alevin16

    Another Flacco Special?

  • Jaybird

    How bout that laser Ben just threw!

  • ND_Steel

    I saw him appear to wince and grab at it one pre-game.

  • Rob

    He faced speed rushers last year too im sure..multiple penalties, pressures, and already 2 sacks allowed this year by my count

  • #7

    Bryant is a bad bad man

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Might be the furthest I’ve seen Ben throw it in a while

  • Michael Mosgrove

    laser to the front of bryants helmet. lol.

  • michael young

    Martivis Bryant is such a physical freak. Boy we missed him. That deep speed is crazy!

  • gentry_gee

    Good throw by Ben.

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    LOL if that hadn’t been interfered that was 6

  • RickM

    Never, ever will I not admit when I’m flat-out wrong. Good speed by MB.

  • ryan72384

    Offensive line run blocking looks better. Pass blocking looks shaky

  • 6 ring circus

    What kinda game is this with Bradford? Nail Biter…

  • 6 ring circus

    AB woulda caught that.

  • Chad Sanborn

    Hit him in the head

  • #7

    Errr…doubt it

  • Aj Gentile

    Touchdown JUJU

  • alevin16

    and Hines Ward with the score

  • gentry_gee

    Ju, ju!

  • ryan72384

    Looked like Sammie trying to catch it

  • michael young

    Bradford isn’t mobile and our DL and LB’s are getting excellent pressure. My guess…..not much.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    juju playing yahtzee in the end zone.

  • Agustin-ARG

    Another good playcall.

  • gentry_gee

    Old Hines Ward play!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    JuJu!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    yeah JuJu

  • Jaybird

    JU JU. !

  • michael young

    My thoughts exactly. HW2

  • Michael Mosgrove

    exactly.

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    Shovel pass to JuJu, I like it.

  • RickM

    Wow. I know there have been PI penalties to help us but the O is cooking overcoming all our own penalties. 3/3 in the RZ in 2017.

  • gentry_gee

    Yeah!

  • #7

    They’re all good play calls when they work

  • ryan72384

    JuJu gonna be a beast too. I love the group celebrations lol.

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    Keep the foot on the their throat guys!!!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    exactly

  • Chad Sanborn

    That was the same play JJ Scored with

  • michael young

    For real. Came down with ice on it.

  • gentry_gee

    Totally! Ah, the good old days. Hines was so amazing.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    boo the cheaters are up 20-3. i feel bad for brees. new orleans defense has sucked for so long.

  • NinjaMountie

    Looks like our Offense is starting to click. Need to cut down on the mental errors but it’s starting to come together.
    Definite TD if MB hadn’t been interfered with.
    Good, creative playcalling in the RZ. Like it.

  • Michael

    gopher gives stink eye to snake on top.

  • MoreRingsThanYourTeam

    Congratulations, John Smith. Your first reception is a touchdown. Hopefully the start of an illustrious career.

  • gentry_gee

    Pay the man!

  • ayub

    I think Payton should be fired at the end of the year.

  • michael young

    If they celebrate together, it will cut down on the jealousy too. Scoring as a team.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    lmao

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    John? autocorrect? its JuJu

  • Michael Mosgrove

    he should have been fired 5 years ago. brees has consistenly been one of the best qb’s in the league for years.

  • NinjaMountie

    Well. Maybe it would have just been a catch with MB. Could have been tackled short.

  • Michael

    Outside of Sanders, Wallace, most Ex-Steelers disappear like fog in thin air.

  • ND_Steel

    Brees’ fat contract doesn’t help that!

  • ayub

    Yeah. The message is stale, always over the cap, bad signings, terrible defenses. Sometimes it’s just over.

  • DarthYinzer

    OK, I can breathe a little easier.. one play can’t beat us.

  • #7

    Vrabel

  • #7

    Vince Williams can definitely run

  • alevin16

    too much time

  • gentry_gee

    Looks like Bradford might’ve lit us up.

  • #7

    Eye roll

  • Michael Mosgrove

    he hasnt had a season below 4000 yards since 05.

  • ryan72384

    Secondary looks solid

  • Michael Mosgrove

    he’s earned every cent of that.

  • Rob

    You had to know this was coming from Steelers fans..hate em as much as I love em

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    Haden just got beat pretty bad there. Overall i agree though

  • Michael Mosgrove

    bradford is a good qb. always has been. then he got caught up in that philly fiasco.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Cam’s on a mission this game

  • alevin16

    they look like they are trying to set up a screen

  • Chad Sanborn

    the other team has players too

  • Steelers12

    Wallace ain’t done too much either

  • gentry_gee

    Hey man, they’re moving the ball!

  • Steelers12

    Makes it hard to build a team around him

  • gentry_gee

    Good job D. Definitely have to bring the blitz. Their QB is capable with time.

  • #7

    Yeah. They’re professionals too

  • RickM

    He has a ‘free pass’ for many games from most.

  • pdupuis

    Hilton looked like he was shot out of a cannon.

  • Chad Sanborn

    keenum took a hit

  • ryan72384

    There is no doubt our defense goes as far as the passrush takes them

  • Rob

    What has anyone seen today, that indicates Bradford, average QB, would have lit us up? Why even bring up such a ridiculous hypothetical. The D is playing well, and the O is finally clicking.

  • #7

    3 points. God this team is terrible. Tear down the stadium and turn it into a parking lot

  • NinjaMountie

    Haven’t got a sack but we’ve been in his face all game. Just as good almost.

  • Steeler4Ever

    that looked like a mental error on someone not necessary 21 fault

  • Shannon Stephenson

    we sure did dial up some pressure….good thing because our secondary had a few oops that could have hurt us

  • Michael Mosgrove

    its not really about bradford its about keenum. bradford is much better than keenum.

  • Michael

    Is Chick or Dupree playing?

  • gentry_gee

    I was concerned by how their backup moved the sticks on that drive. Steelers adjusted and brought more heat.

  • Chad Sanborn

    He’s smart enough to get rid of the ball

  • pittfan

    Buds in

  • Rob

    Fire Butler, Tomlin, and every single waterboy in the stadium. I personally have had enough of this era, and warm waters at the game

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Just got home. Are people calling for Tomlin to get fired and Bell to be waived yet?

  • MP

    wouldn’t know it

  • RickM

    It’ll never be his fault.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Falcons and Packers is gonna be awesome tonight

  • gentry_gee

    Yeah, where’s Chick?

  • Michael

    LOL…

  • John Noh

    Move the team to Scranton!

  • #7

    No he’s not really. Bradford has spent most of his career either injured or at best mediocre

  • MP

    Pretty soon!

  • ayub

    Rooney to sell the team actually.

  • NinjaMountie

    He is getting rid of it fast. You’re correct. He’s smarter than Kizer…and more experienced. Honestly, I always thought Houston was stupid for getting rid of him.

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    It looked like man coverage, if it was man Haden should have been closer and been able to undercut the route. I have game pass, I’ll watch it later on the All 22 and see what I can find out

  • Mister Wirez

    I’d like to see Chick play a bit.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Worst-run organization in the league.

  • alevin16

    It would be nice for the Steelers to mount a TD drive without penalties

  • Michael

    1st Qt nearly over, nobody knows who’s at LEFT OLB thus far?

  • Michael Mosgrove

    no. not even close to correct. bradfords single biggest problem has been his olines. st louis NEVER had a line when he was there and he got obliterated. he wasnt given a fair shot in philly and minnesota is rebuilding their line as well.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Seriously though, how are we looking besides the obvious from the score?

  • Michael Mosgrove

    jesse was wide freaking open and he was trying to force it to ab.

  • Chad Sanborn

    that handoff was weird

  • alevin16

    foot comes off neck

  • #7

    Honestly pretty good….aside from the penalties

  • Michael

    Yah, in Fargo twang.

  • Steeler4Ever

    750 thousand dollar man a week

  • Michael Mosgrove

    STOP THAT BEN JESUS CHRIST.

  • RickM

    Come on Ben, look for the shorter stuff.

  • gentry_gee

    Trying to move the ball thru PI?

  • gentry_gee

    There’s 56.

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    Stop forcing it!!!

  • Jeremy McClurg

    terrible punt

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Always bet on PI

  • pittfan

    Bad series from Ben

  • ryan72384

    Trying to force feed AB when it’s not there and you go 3 and out. All that does expose our defense

  • NinjaMountie

    Okay…the deep pass every time is getting a little old when there are wide open people with only “moderate” gains of 30 yds available.

  • Mister Wirez

    No seam route to JJ? Wasted effort

  • #7

    Speaking of poor starts to the season…Berry

  • MP

    Rhodes with nice coverage. Ben with bad choices.

  • gentry_gee

    Composed but still finding their footing.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    rogers, jesse and bryant were all open on that 2nd throw. yet ben forcing it to ab twice in a row. stupid stupid stupid. just rewatched it 3 different times.

  • Jaybird

    Last week it was 5 bubble screens in a row. Today it’s 12 bombers in a row.
    Sigh

  • John Noh

    This looks like road Ben.

  • ryan72384

    Bud is all I’ve seen

  • 6 ring circus

    Dirty Red – STD – Special Teams Demon

  • MP

    Beautiful ST tackle by Watt. Geesh

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I guess we need a 40 yards PI call to move the ball

  • pdupuis

    D needs to step up on this possession by the Vikings.

  • NinjaMountie

    Did we trade for Flacco?

  • MP

    Was that Red? I saw no. 90

  • WilliamSekinger

    And the foot has been lifted all of a sudden. I wish this team had the sense of when to force passes down field and when to demoralize their opponent.

  • Chad Sanborn

    that is going to happen 2-3 times a game

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Anyone else notice that we seem to have an issue with not switching up our play calling? We run 5 screens in a row, throw it deep 4 times in a row, run 7 times in a row. It just seems like we decide we’re going to do something then predictably overdo it, instead of, say, running twice, throwing a screen, running one more, then going deep off play-action.

  • Dorian James

    You would think LOL

  • 6 ring circus

    He got there second…90 did

  • Michael Mosgrove

    rogers was open for 4 yards. bryant was open for 10 yards. jesse open for 15-20 yards. that was stupid.

  • #7

    Lol ok.

  • MP

    Now that would require an OC and QB who had rhythm..

  • Mister Wirez

    Haleys dirty finger prints

  • Jaybird

    No but we traded for Zampese from cincy

  • Dorian James

    That’s just Haley bro he’s very predictable

  • ryan72384

    yes.. two words Todd Haley

  • NinjaMountie

    Okay….I think ben has it out of his system. Now the D just needs to step it up and get a turnover.

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Nice hit, Mitch

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Didn’t hit him in the head. Weird….

  • Michael

    typical…

  • HopeHarveys

    Watt to locker room. Chick in.

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Yes!

  • Michael Mosgrove

    hopefully haley and zamp are in the same spot at the end of the season. out of the afc north.

  • ryan72384

    The plan on D is still don’t cover tight ends lol

  • Rob

    Mike Mitchell doin what he does best

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    He knows Mitchell was there

  • Applebite

    Glad Mitchell is back and in some sort of sync…

  • #7

    The 3 man rush worked! I’ve now seen everything

  • alevin16

    OK O you were given a 2nd chance to put the foot on the throat, please do it

  • ryan72384

    Watt go to locker room?

  • HopeHarveys

    So says Bouchette via Twitter

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Missy Mathews says watt not playing- why?

  • Chad Sanborn

    Haven’t heard anything may be he had to pee

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    Please Watt don’t be hurt!!!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Good defense that last drive

  • alevin16

    Now two long bombs

  • Rob

    Kizer out of the Browns game due to a migrane

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Think Watt is in concussion protocol after that hit on special teams

  • HopeHarveys

    Fox hasn’t said

  • #7

    Diarrhea?

  • NinjaMountie

    Hurt his shoulder. He’s had bad knees, though. Could be equipment. I’m hoping equipment

  • Chad Sanborn

    play action? Ha

  • HopeHarveys

    Dang.

  • #7

    That’s why Bell is special

  • Shannon Stephenson

    nice run by Bell

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    There we go. Just took him a little time

  • Michael Mosgrove

    GOD DAMN IT AL.

  • Chad Sanborn

    really?

  • ryan72384

    Damn Villy wake up!

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Yikes. That leg turn didn’t look great. Glad he’s okay

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Does ben know they need first downs?

  • alevin16

    Ben you have other receivers

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    AB should have caught that

  • Dorian James

    He is getting destroyed

  • Michael Mosgrove

    juju open. ben forcing it to ab still. thats 3 forced.

  • Chad Sanborn

    ouch

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Joseph fell on Ben’s leg according to Tun h

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Great series. Ugh

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    we dodged a bullet there… Ben cant get hurt. At least we can’t afford it.

  • HopeHarveys

    Ben has 3 completions.

  • ryan72384

    Besides the 2 interference calls our offense still looks bad

  • RickM

    Drop by AB in my books.

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Holy hell, Berry. Where did your leg go? Two awful punts

  • Dorian James

    Ben is looking very bad why is he blaming Eli he ran the route just fine

  • Michael Mosgrove

    where the hell is the flag there? he held hey bey big time.

  • ryan72384

    Berry showed up lol

  • NinjaMountie

    Yeah…shoulda had that one. He’s set the standard too high.

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    those two interference calls had to be done. The one on MB if it hadn’t happened that would’ve been 6. We still got the touchdown on that drive though.

  • Mister Wirez

    Bens a tick off

  • Agustin-ARG

    Tampa bay: dark horse

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    How was that not holding on Heyward? Wow

  • RickM

    9-10 he grabs that one. Oh well. Ben has to get sharper, as does AV.

  • Chad Sanborn

    2games in a row we are winning on the scoreboard but not the statsheet

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Shazier is the best blitzer in the NFL

  • Rob

    If you watch it again, Eli changed his depth at the last second. Ben was leading him down field against man coverage, Eli came back in as if it was zone coverage.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    heybey got held big time by two players during punt. no flag. at all.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Need a big defensive play

  • ryan72384

    Shazier blew that up

  • NinjaMountie

    Just when I thought the offense was clicking. Ben just needs to settle down.

  • pdupuis

    That would be a LOSS of 3

  • alevin16

    I heard that too

  • ryan72384

    There he is

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    blew up the O-line lol

  • #7

    I know. I wish it was the other way around. Stat sheets are where it’s at!

  • Dorian James

    Dupreeeeeeeee

  • WilliamSekinger

    Bud is back!

  • RickM

    BUD! 1 on the way to 12.

  • Aj Gentile

    Nine more to go to get double digits

  • ayub

    Defense looks fast and aggressive.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Thanks Bud

  • Shannon Stephenson

    what u think about that BUD!!!

  • alevin16

    Wish I could say the same about our O

  • Jeremy McClurg

    I think the pressure is getting to Ben. The Vikings are getting significant pressure

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    Yea, lets go Dupree!!!

  • Chad Sanborn

    Sack!

  • ryan72384

    Fair catch with lots of room

  • #7

    Get AB back there. Rogers is kinda useless

  • Aj Gentile

    It would help if they threw some quick passes

  • NinjaMountie

    We definitely need to work on our sack celebrations, lol.

  • ayub

    The lord giveth and taketh.

  • alevin16

    So long as AB is not back there as long as the guy catches it I am thrilled

  • ryan72384

    Absolutely it’s in his head. Villy getting whupped every play

  • Applebite

    Plenty of time to move down field. But Haley needs to do better with his calling….as usual.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    two minute offense…hope to see something good

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    No, we wanna keep forcing to AB on the Fly route… smh lol

  • alevin16

    Time for a long bomb

  • Michael Mosgrove

    heath chant?

  • RickM

    I wanted shorter but not that short.

  • Dorian James

    I hope it stays that way too

  • WilliamSekinger

    Yeah, it’s 3rd and short.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    i dont. jesse is nothing like heath.

  • pittfan

    21-3 halftime book it

  • CommonSenseGoneWild

    Dissapointed so far in the offense

  • #7

    Why? AB is a threat to take it back every time

  • Steeler4Ever

    here we go with bad clock management

  • Steeler4Ever

    2 : 40 left at start

  • Dorian James

    What I mean is when any tight end catches the ball.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    big play ben gonna be big interception ben.

  • NinjaMountie

    How so?

  • HopeHarveys

    TJ Watt questionable to return

  • Shannon Stephenson

    after that almost first catch debackle I believe it scared him

  • alevin16

    ugh

  • RickM

    Ben hasn’t played well, but Minnesota sure doesn’t give QB’s many freebies in the pocket.

  • Applebite

    Call me crazy, but I’d put Conner in on this one…

  • gentry_gee

    Kind of tired of the spread, finesse football on O.

  • Steeler4Ever

    I know the Steelers…wink

  • Steelers072684

    Looks like Watt is back, he just hugged Dupree.

  • HopeHarveys

    Groin injury

  • NinjaMountie

    Yeah? 2m is plenty of time to score and if they don’t the other team doesn’t have the 2m warining to. That was textbook.

  • gentry_gee

    What? Oh no!

  • ryan72384

    Not having a LT that can handle elite passrushers really changes things. Villy is getting beat up out there and I don’t think Ben trusts that blind side protection. The o line as a whole does not look good in pass protection against this front.

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    Seriously? Well, this sucks… At least we got Deebo.

  • Rob

    Sad to not have players like Tuitt and Watt out there, but seeing the D play how it is just reminds how great of a job Tom/Co have done at filling quality depth at previously barren spots

  • Jaybird

    Chickalo

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Rams and 49ERS on Thursday night? Can’t wait

  • 6 ring circus

    Yea, you gotta understand risk/reward. 7 pts is not worth 100 catches, 1200 yards

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Juju was open, but i’ll take it

  • #7

    This year yes. They certainly have

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    I knew exactly where that was going before it was called… lol. Vikings couldn’t defend that?

  • Jeremy McClurg

    12.5 sacks last week. We have found god

  • Dorian James

    Lmao, keep that Heath chant going

  • #7

    Yeah AV is getting eaten alive

  • Rob

    Bell is so good at blitz pick up..straight up stoned that blitzer and knocked him back

  • RickM

    AV being schooled.

  • Jaybird

    AB IS INSANE!!!!!!! That was a catch!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Tinch says it is a catch

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    Coach Munch is gonna eat AV alive…

  • Dorian James

    Sick

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Review will overturn

  • Agustin-ARG

    wow only AB

  • ryan72384

    Seriously this looks like Mike Adams against Jared Allen in 2013. Villy getting destroyed. Had Ben not felt that he was going to get lit up

  • Mister Wirez

    The Wide 9 id a Steelers Al killer

  • NinjaMountie

    Yup…catch…no doubt

  • Yeshaya

    Wow AB

  • Shannon Stephenson

    great pass and catch….Ben did a great job with Griffin on his azz

  • 6 ring circus

    Tony Toetap

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    AB doing work, like always.

  • RickM

    Great catch, but great throw as well. But that always is always ignored lol. Only the bad ones noticed.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Bad news; watt has groin return questionable

  • Yeshaya

    Pete Morelli rules it an interception returned for a TD…

  • Yeshaya

    Oy

  • John Phillips

    Ben is probably the only QB that could’ve escaped there

  • Rob S.

    Call will be confirmed? Dean Blandino is an idiot.

  • pittfan

    YES!!!

  • #7

    To nobody’s surprise

  • Steeler4Ever

    oh yes he will

  • ryan72384

    Lol

  • Chad Sanborn

    Gotta Keep Bell in the backfield to help AV

  • Mister Wirez

    Harrison slowly rides in….

  • Jaybird

    Absolutely . Great throw.

  • Rob

    It’s not really surprise anymore, but every week, AB does something that I’m like “that shouldn’t be possible” but I come to expect it from him

  • Michael

    catch.

  • alevin16

    17 wide open

  • Michael Mosgrove

    STOP FREAKING FORCING IT TO BROWN. BRYANT AND JUJU WERE WIDE OPEN.
    GOD DAMN IT BEN.
    FOURTH FORCED.

  • ryan72384

    Seriously Terrence Newman is still playing?

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Brown is the only receiver on the field

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    And a wasted drive

  • Michael Mosgrove

    THE ONLY ONE BEN IS THROWING TO. BEN HAS BEEN MISSING WIDE OPEN RECEIVERS. argh.

  • Chad Sanborn

    UGH

  • pdupuis

    Obviously!

  • Jason

    WTF is wrong with Ben, o yeah he must have AB on his fantasy team

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Needed 3 points there

  • RickM

    No chance to go through reads. Their D line is ferocious.

  • John Phillips

    Why not Golden is

  • WilliamSekinger

    This is what people dislike about Ben.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    WTF…WTF….WTF

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    This is gonna cost us the game…

  • ryan72384

    Bomb after bomb. Forcing it to AB. And our franchise gets rocked. Love the playcalls and execution

  • Yeshaya

    That was a flacco drive, throw it deep and hope for maybe a catch, probably PI

  • #7

    It was as though James wasn’t even there. Olay!

  • John Phillips

    Didn’t like his play calling but standing in the pocket I have no qualms

  • RJ

    Total air time of Ben’s combined passes totals about 48 miles.

  • Chad Sanborn

    That was a bad.series by Ben. Wasted opportunities will come back to haunt usin some game

  • John Phillips

    At least the Vikes are running the ball

  • Michael

    Brady throws shorties for TD drives, his motto.

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    The thing is you don’t have to go through reads here. The same pass has been open every time… Its James right in the middle of the field…

  • Michael Mosgrove

    ben has five forced to ab when other receivers were open. let that sink in FIVE.

  • Rob

    Especially on that last throw. He wasn’t forcing it to anyone. He was in the pocket, so throwing it deep and out of reach was the only way to avoid a sack.

  • Yeshaya

    Watt is on the sideline, that’s good then

  • NinjaMountie

    I’m getting old. Who gets the ball to open the half?

  • alevin16

    vikings

  • RickM

    I absolutely agree he’s gone deep too much. But they resulted in 2 PI’s and subsequent TD’s. That’ll be forgotten though.

  • ayub

    Better teams will make the steelers pay for not scoring. Stop forcing the deep stuff to AB.

  • Yeshaya

    Raisins just missed a FG, they’re up 14-7 with 1 min left in half

  • WilliamSekinger

    Ben has had 2 bad series.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    STOP FORCING IT TO AB!!!

  • pdupuis

    14 but should be 17 or 21.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    and he could have had 5 more first downs on the forced passes to ab.

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Ben has missed wide open receivers all first half. Once he gets locked on thats it…he isn’t even going through his progressions. Ben is in week 2…of the preseason.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    We have arguably the most well-balanced offense in the league, and AB is arguably our second best deep threat. I don’t see much reason to go deep to him multiple times when we’re about 20 yards from field goal range.

  • alevin16

    how long was the attempt

  • John Phillips

    James his hurt, he’s limping, go for 4 wideout out with Bell
    Where are the screens and I’m not talking about bubbles

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    He’s relying on it now though. That’s the only problem I have personally.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Get ready for the rapture, Justin Tucker missed a FG

  • #7

    The Vikings were the 2nd coming prior to the game…according to many on this blog

  • francesco

    Pass interference…what’s going on refs? Call it. Hands all over Brown.

  • pdupuis

    Groin, questionable return.

  • Rob

    Play calls have not been for short passes, and usually the first read is the deep route. Not enough time to work back down

  • T-51b

    He didn’t need all those snaps in preseason, per the head coach.

  • RickM

    He’s definitely going deep too often. I’m kind of wondering if he feels a little that he doesn’t have the time to go through his reads. Our O-Line was not stellar in that first half. AV was awful and on that last play Hunter destroyed his man.

  • alevin16

    And the browns are the browns

  • Chad Sanborn

    His stats say otherwise

  • Talyn Scarbrough

    The same pass has been open every time though. James right in the middle of the field. It’s not really where he needs to be Charlie Checkdown.

  • RickM

    Bad half for him. Can’t be sugar-coated.

  • Chad Sanborn

    We barely won

  • Michael Mosgrove

    ben completes those 5 passes. thats 5 more first downs. we could be up even more. we definitely have more yards, we definitely have less punts. god ben is dumb sometimes.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Why do announcers pronounce Martavis Bryant’s name “Martavious?” That’s not correct, is it?

    I know but in this game the Browns were moving and their QB just threw a bad int, could have brought the score to 14-10 or 14-14

    Our offense looks really bad again. Ben looks off today too but the offensive line is not helping. They getting beat up by a good front seven

  • RickM

    Both are a solid D. AV and Ben that is.

  • Chad Sanborn

    No complaints because we are winning. But this week, while an improvent, is still one of Bad Habits, wasted opportunities, and penalties

    The Steelers O-line is a little overrated if you ask me.

    The Pittsburgh media seems to think they’re one the best in the league.

    Can’t count how many times they have had 1st and goal from the one against the Pats and were unable to score

    weddle got another interception. my god if we had picked him up.

    Haley and Ben not on the same page. Ben’s accuracy is off. Poor decision making going to AB 4 times in a row when Martavis has 38 year old terrance newman on him.

    yep good count

  • Michael

    Should I stay here or go to second half thread?

  • Walt Dongo

    Haley sucks
