Steelers Defense Must Build Off Of Texans Turnovers

Last night on Twitter, I wrote that the Pittsburgh Steelers had scored 17 points off of turnovers against the Houston Texans, mockingly adding “also, the Steelers have turnovers tonight”. The truth is, however, that the team has forced at least one turnover now in five straight games, reaching a season-high three turnovers last night in […]

Below are my notes and observations upon reviewing the first half of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ loss to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Steelers vs Browns II First Half Notes And Observations

Below are my notes and observations upon reviewing the first half of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ loss to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. On Dri Archer’s first kick return, Vince Williams missed his block, which got Archer tackled on the 14. The ‘start’ by Lance Moore was evidently a token gesture, as he didn’t play again […]

Statistics Favor Steelers Over Texans More Than Reality Might

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been riding an irritating trend thus far this season, having alternated wins and losses through the first six games. Their last game ended in an embarrassing defeat, so if that pattern is to hold, they must win against the Houston Texans on Monday night. History supports that probability, according to Steelers […]

Steelers Out Of The Zone Against Texans Rush Without Steve McLendon

The Pittsburgh Steelers were gashed on the ground by their opponents’ running games during the first two games of the season. Over the next three games, however, the numbers began to die down significantly. This resulted in triggering a false positive that the Steelers had ‘fixed’ their issues in the running game, which proved not […]

Lance Moore Gets His Chance After Steelers Abandon The Run

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Lance Moore started against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. And then he came off the field, after one snap, remaining on the sidelines for most of the rest of the first half. But it was Justin Brown standing on the sidelines during the second half, as most of Moore’s 36 snaps […]

Steelers Show A 4-5-2 Goal Line Package Against Cleveland

It seemed odd to me when reviewing the snap counts from the Pittsburgh Steelers game against the Cleveland Browns that three of the four starting members of the secondary all played every snap but two. I realized that something must have occurred during the game that I missed to cause this quirk, and indeed it […]

Dri Archer’s Play Not Special Enough To Demand A Helmet

The Pittsburgh Steelers certainly seem intent on finding more ways to get rookie running back Dri Archer involved and contributing to the team’s success. On Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, Archer carried the ball three times, received one pass, returned three kickoffs, and fielded one punt. On offense, he produced a total of 24 yards. […]

Roethlisberger, Wheaton No Longer Reading The Same Page

Although he didn’t outright drop any of his targets on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, second-year Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Markus Wheaton was clearly struggling to get on the same page with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. And that’s a problem, because the fast-growing rapport between the two was a big reason why the Steelers found any […]

Meaningless Statistics Even More Meaningless In A Loss

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown recorded seven receptions for 118 yards against the Cleveland Browns yesterday. It was his third 100-yard receiving game of the season in six games, and he’s just three yards behind Jordy Nelson for the most receiving yards in the league with 629, averaging more than 100 yards per game.

Steelers Offense Hitting Potholes On The Road

The bad news is that, overall, the Pittsburgh Steelers offense on the road has been little short of terrible this season. On the plus side, however, they’ve already gotten half of their away games out of the way, and have come through that with a winning record, going 2-2 on the road. That does nothing […]

Steelers Knocking On AFC North Basement Door

And just like that, the Pittsburgh Steelers are back in the basement. Many, no doubt, would argue that that’s just where they belong. And I’m not sure I could give a compelling enough argument to the contrary. The basement of which I speak is, of course, at the bottom of the AFC North division, of […]

Steelers vs Browns II Second Live Update And Discussion Thread

The Pittsburgh Steelers took a 21-3 deficit into halftime after the Cleveland Browns put up three touchdowns in the second quarter. The Steelers offense was moving well early on before sputtering late, but red zone inefficiency and a botched field goal means that they have just three points to show for it. The Browns start the second […]

Slow Starts Still Hurting Steelers Defense

During the broadcast of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars, it was mentioned, after the home team had netted a field goal, that Pittsburgh has allowed their opponents to score on every opening drive thus far this season.

Steelers Hoping To Keep Turnovers A Mainstay On Defense

The Pittsburgh Steelers failed to record a single turnover during the first two games of the season. In the last three, they have recorded five.

Steelers Road Offense Could Use A Tuneup

If there’s been one consistent theme about this offense through the first five games of the season for the Pittsburgh Steelers, it’s that the end result will be inconsistent. Speaking strictly of the offense, the Steelers are now averaging exactly 20 points per game after putting up 100 points in total. But those points have […]

Steelers vs Ravens Film Review: The 4-6-1 Look

Last Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, the Pittsburgh Steelers surrendered three red zone touchdowns in five red zone trips, including two touchdowns in both goal to go situations en route to giving up 27 points.

WR Runs Prove Effective For Steelers Offense

When it came to the ground game, the Pittsburgh Steelers remained fairly traditional in attacking the Cleveland Browns’ front seven in the season opener. Even on Dri Archer’s one carry of the game, there was little trickery involved, with a simple toss on an inside zone run that went for four yards. Excluding a couple […]

Lack Of Touches For Le’Veon Bell Comes In Another Steelers Defeat

During the Pittsburgh Steelers’ season-opening squeak-by victory over the Cleveland Browns, the team managed to extend its record to 6-0 whenever running back Le’Veon Bell receives 20 or more carries or 25 or more total touches. After Thursday night’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens, the Steelers are now 3-6 when his totals fall below those […]

Defensive Left Side Falling Behind Against The Run

Few people had much positive to say when the Pittsburgh Steelers signed free agent Cam Thomas, even back when the assumption was that he would inherit Al Woods’ role as a swing backup defensive end and nose tackle. It was believed at the time that the Steelers would pursue a starting alternative in free agency. […]

Brett Keisel’s Inclusion On Defense May Be Gradual

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel is getting his first taste of football of the year this week. He was dressed for Thursday night’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles without having taken even a single practice rep. Of course, he didn’t play in the game either.

Taking on Browns in Cleveland is more than a tune-up game

With the abysmal record of the Cleveland Browns (4-11), many Steelers fans are giving the Steelers a pass, believing that it will be an easy win. When the Steelers met the Browns earlier in the season (week 14), they managed to hold on to pull off a 14-3 win. Ben Roethlisberger was injured, as was […]
