Steelers Vs Eagles Missed Tackles Report

Sunday’s game in Philadelphia against the Eagles was ugly to say the least. Almost as ugly as the final score itself was the attempted tackling in the 34-3 loss. Like I do every week, I’ll keep track of missed tackles in the game, as well as overall on the season. …


Steelers Film Room: Eli Rogers Vs Eagles

At this point, it seems likely that the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to have to make do at least for this week without the player who has become their primary slot wide receiver, second-year man Eli Rogers. Over the course of the first three games, he has caught nine passes…


Shaken-Up Secondary Gets Shake-Up In Practice

If you saw the Pittsburgh Steelers in practice yesterday—which, if you’re reading this, the odds are strong that you did not—you will have noticed that the secondary looked awfully thin, with a particular dearth of safeties to be noted. You might recall that during the team’s loss to the Eagles…


Kozora: How To Improve The Steelers’ Pass Rush

Through three weeks, you’d be hard pressed to find a Pittsburgh Steelers’ fan who wouldn’t say pass rush is the biggest issue facing this team the rest of the year. One sack in three games, dead last in the league, with every other team having at least three. This, despite…


Week 3 Steelers Offensive Charting Notes

Stats are fun. We think so, and we’re pretty sure you think so too, which is why this season we’ve decided to make our charting notes a weekly series to follow every game. We will also likely follow up with quarterly, mid-season, and post-season charting notes as well that take…


Steelers Film Room: David DeCastro Vs Eagles

When an offense that is regarded as one of the best in the game manages to score only three points in fair weather conditions with a reasonable state of health, you can rest assured that there were a number of factors that contributed to the issue. That is certainly the…


Terrelle Pryor Finally Starting To Live Up To Potential In Cleveland

Sunday afternoon was probably the first time that former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor lived up to all the potential that others saw in him entering the professional ranks, and he did it seemingly every which way, contributing as a wide receiver, runner, and quarterback, even though the Cleveland Browns…


2016 South Side Questions: How Will Markus Wheaton Respond?

The regular season is here, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are taking their practices at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex, formerly known and still referred to as the ‘South Side’ facility of Heinz Field. While the real work is now upon us, there is plenty left to be done. And there…




Field Position Not To Blame For Struggles Against Eagles

One of the most concerning factors in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ loss to the Eagles on Sunday, to me, was the fact that, outside of one drive, they continued to do a good job of staying ahead of the game in the field position battle, and yet they were still ineffective…


Film Room: Eagles First TD Begins The Blowout

It wasn’t the only domino to fall but it was the first. The Philadelphia Eagles’ first touchdown, a 12 yard connection from Carson Wentz to Jordan Matthews. Unlike a lot of notable plays, this was a product of scheme more than individual breakdowns, which I tend to stay away from…


Sack Breakdown: Steelers Vs Eagles

Unfortunately, we have more than one of these this week. 1. 8:22 2nd, 3rd and 8. 11 personnel. Five to block + a RB check/release against a four man rush. This is Todd Haley’s 62 Z Indy Post we wrote about last year and has been very successful for Pittsburgh. But…


Taking Stock Of Steelers’ Damaged Goods

This is in no way to absolve the Pittsburgh Steelers of their performance on Sunday, but I wanted to take a moment to provide a recap of what sort of hand the team was playing with from a health perspective by the end of the team’s blowout loss to the…
