Steelers 2017 Week 4 Offensive Charting Notes

The Pittsburgh Steelers came into Sunday’s game with a plan in mind to get the running game going, and they did that—including dedicating the personnel in order to carry out that plan. As you’ll see below, they used three-receiver sets less frequently than in the first three games in order…

Chuck Noll Foundation For Brain Research Begins Grant Cycle

I don’t think that there is another team in the league that has had a more personal and direct involvement in the discussion surrounding concussions over the course of the past few decades than have been the Pittsburgh Steelers. It was the discovery of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) in the…


Film Room: Joe Haden Gets Taste Of Steelers-Ravens Rivalry

We received a request earlier this week to do something on one of the newest Pittsburgh Steelers, cornerback Joe Haden, and how he has been performing, considering that the team’s cornerbacks haven’t exactly had the most high-profile spotlight through four games.

Brief notes from the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Week Four win over the Baltimore Ravens. First Half – Kick coverage.

Steelers Vs Ravens Missed Tackles Report

One week after the Pittsburgh Steelers turned in an embarrassing tackling performance against the Chicago Bears in a 23-17 overtime loss, the Steelers’ defense continued its Jekyll and Hyde performance, coming through with a standout performance against the Baltimore Ravens in Maryland in Week 4.

Watch: Why The Steelers’ Secondary Got Lucky Sunday

Statistically, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ secondary looks really strong. And there’s no question they have improved and hopefully, probably, continue to do so. But they’re getting a bit lucky too and soon enough, it’ll catch up to them. We look at three plays from Sunday’s win over the Baltimore Ravens that…


Film Room: Ramon Foster Pulling His Weight, Too

This is not something that I have yet mentioned in an article this year, but you may have seen me mention it on Twitter at one point. The Pittsburgh Steelers have been getting a lot of use over the course of the first four games of the season out of…




2017 South Side Questions: Could Steelers Use Two Tackle-Eligibles?

The journey toward the Super Bowl is now well under way with the Pittsburgh Steelers back practicing at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex, still informally referred to as the ‘South Side’ facility. With the regular season standing in their way on the path to a Lombardi, there will be questions…


Harbaugh: Ravens ‘Not Going To Change Dramatically’ To Fix Offense

Despite the fact that their offense has been anything but efficient this season, Baltimore Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh reiterated earlier this week that the team would be making no significant changes to the unit in an attempt to try to find a solution to their problems. In Harbaugh’s defense,…


Film Room: Martavis Bryant Showing Growth As A Receiver

In last week’s film room, I touched upon how a split second was negating the success of Martavis Bryant’s go routes. Bryant will be the area of focus again this week but not for another flaw but for a refined piece of his game that has seen major improvement since…
