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…

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…

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…

Ask Alex: Steelers’ Mailbag

Welcome back to the mailbag, everybody. One old man rant for the week. I don’t know if I am being a typical lazy millennial or if I have a legit gripe but I hate the 280 Twitter character count. Absolutely abhor it. And then I hate myself for feeling exhausted after reading…
