Steelers Versus Ravens – First Half Notes And Observations – Week 13

By Matthew Marczi The decision to run on third and 12 in the beginning of the game seemed stupid at first, until you noticed the way the Ravens were lined up on defense. It was tempting to run through that hole. And it was probably closer to working than you’d think. Mat McBriar had his […]

Can The Steelers Secondary Improve Over The Final Four Games?

By Jeremy Hritz The momentum has been stifled, and the longest win streak for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2013 ends at three games, one better than their previous streak of two. If this pattern continues, their next streak will be four in a row, and they could keep their slim playoff possibilities afloat at least […]

Pittsburgh Not Amused After Special Teams Made The Butt Of The Joke

By Matthew Marczi In a game that saw Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker send a quintuplet of pigskins through the uprights in what was ultimately a two-point loss, the special teams performance of the Pittsburgh Steelers should probably be credited with assists on a pair of those field goals. First, there was the comical ‘cadence’ […]

Steelers Film Room: Two Point Conversion Play Same As Touchdown

If the two point conversion play ran Thursday night by the Pittsburgh Steelers late in the loss to the Baltimore Ravens looked similar to the touchdown play, it’s because it was the same play except for the route ran by wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders. “We called the exact same play that we scored on the […]

Fernando Velasco May Have Played His Best Game Of The Year Against Cleveland

By Matthew Marczi Perhaps nobody on the Steelers has benefited more from the newly-administered quick passing game that has dominated the past two games than center Fernando Velasco. While he was a good pick-up during the season as a plug-and-play center, the reality is that he has not been anything more than competent for the […]

By Michael K. Reynolds The Pittsburgh Steelers are on a roll and hopes are high again which means for the time being everyone is playing nice-nice with the coaches. But that doesn’t mean we let them entirely off the hook, especially with a 5-6 record still looming. For there remain some real head-scratchers when it comes to […]

By Matthew Marczi Much of the third quarter was owned by Will Allen. He ended the Browns’ first drive with a tackle on Greg Lloyd a yard shy of the first down. Antonio Brown may have saved Ben Roethlisberger an interception on his deep pass that fluttered toward the sideline. Brown got a hand on […]

Steelers Versus Browns – Week 12 – First Half Notes And Observations

By Matthew Marczi Those bubble screen passes never work—except when they do. It’s so easy to complain about a particular play call when you simply ignore when they work—or don’t realize that it is what it is when it actually works.

Skill Position Players Still Have Work To Do Away From The Ball

By Matthew Marczi The difference between the success and failure of a play comes down to the ability of skill position players to block more frequently than many people seem to realize. Since it tends to happen away from the ball, that’s understandable, but I think it’s time to take a look at some plays […]
