Ask Alex: Steelers Mailbag

Welcome to playoff football. Lot to talk about – let’s dive on in. To your questions! Brian Tollini: If Todd Haley is replaced with Randy Fichtner next year at OC, any idea on the broad type of offense he would run? Also, why has the true gadget play died under Todd…


Ask Alex: Steelers Mailbag

Welcome to the first Mailbag of 2018. Hope the New Year is treating you right. To your questions! Mr. Goodkat: Stupid, but fun hypothetical: You have to stop Gronk from gaining 10+ yards on 1 play. You know he’s getting the ball, but you can only play him man-to-man — no…


Ask Alex: Steelers Mailbag

Welcome back to the mailbag. Wow, what a week. Let’s dive in. To your questions! Marcel Chris Chauvet: Alex, I think we know(or we think we do) who the Superbowl favorites are in the AFC. Is there an NFC that you think of as a favorite to make it to the…


Ask Alex: Steelers’ Mailbag

Welcome back to the mailbag. Big week ahead of us. To your questions! falconsaftey43: What’s up with Bryant? Are teams just playing way off him now and he can’t do anything else? Screen passes he’s super hesitant and just seems to wait to be tackled. Only thing he seems to be…

Welcome back to the mailbag. To your questions! PaeperCup:  Hey Alex, being the professional that you are your articles are often objective and impartial, your comments often are as well. But I’d love to hear your personal opinion on the JuJu Suspension and how it compares to the other disciplinary…

Hey everyone, hope this week is treating you well. And that you’re surviving these late games. Two more left. To your questions! Balok Plight: Do you think they will sprinkle some more Conner in at RB to change the pace and save 26 a bit for the stretch? Alex: Not until they…


Ask Alex: Steelers’ Mailbag

Because we’ll all be in a turkey-induced coma 24 hours from now, doing the mailbag a day early. Hope you all have a safe and happy Thanksgiving. On a creepier note, this article popped up in my timeline today. Honestly, and this is maybe a little irrational on my part,…


Listen: Steelers Vs Titans Initial Analysis

Back at it to breakdown the Pittsburgh Steelers huge 40-17 win over the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night football. We look at how the Steelers’ offense was able to move the football, a defense that provided splash plays, and a solid special teams unit. All makes up for a blowout…


Ask Alex: Steelers Mailbag

Mailbag – gameday edition. To your questions! John Noh: Alex, Rosie Nix logged nine offensive snaps against the Colts. Why does he seem to disappear like this? Is it scheme? Circumstance? Something else? The offense, especially Bell, seems to be so much better with 45 in the game. Alex: Sometimes a combination…


Watch: Steelers Playing Man Coverage In Critical Moments

Back at it talking to the tape today. Lot of discussion about how little man coverage the Pittsburgh Steelers are playing this year. But some numbers lose the context. Watch the tape and you’ll see the Steelers are playing more man-to-man on critical downs. We take a look at some of those…

Ask Alex: Steelers’ Mailbag

Welcome back to the mailbag: bye week edition. To your questions! Alex Roarty: Are you worried about Bud? To my (un-trained) eye, he all too often looks like he did when he was a rookie, i.e., harmlessly running up the field on most of his pass rushes. He was so good…


Ask Alex: Steelers’ Mailbag

Another eventful week. Let’s jump into it. To your questions! Beaver Falls Hosiery: Hi Alex; how do you rank the DB’s in order of technical proficiency defending the pass? Alex: In technique alone, it’s still Haden at the top. Which is what you would expect. Mitchell is next. Gets more crap than…
