NFL Week 12 Discussion Thread

Thanks to the Pittsburgh Steelers playing Thursday night, we all can sit back and enjoy several of the key games that will take place on this Week 12 Sunday. I’ve already highlighted 6 games that fans of the Steelers will likely want to keep an eye on today and that…




As Steelers Turn To Rookie DBs, So Baltimore Finds It Own In Tavon Young

The Pittsburgh Steelers began their transition in the secondary on Sunday when they inserted rookie first-round cornerback Artie Burns. But they weren’t the only team in the AFC North undergoing a transition in the secondary and putting a rookie cornerback into the starting lineup. The Baltimore Ravens, too, now seem…



Steelers WR Corps Working Its Way Back

This is going to be an interesting game. I think we already know that. But it’s going to be especially interesting to see what is supposed to be a Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver group that is close to 100 percent. And they will also be doing so against the Baltimore…


Ravens Claim CB Chris Lewis-Harris Off Waivers From Bengals

Ranking The Rooms: AFC North CBs

Steelers Film Room: Why Didn’t Antonio Brown Catch That? Part 15

During this dead period of the NFL season I thought it would be fun to look back at the tremendous 2015 season that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown had as it relates to the targeted passes that he didn’t manage to catch. This series, however, should not be viewed…


CB Jerraud Powers ‘Kind Of Dominating Everyone’ For Ravens

On May 13, 2016, the Baltimore Ravens signed free agent cornerback Jerraud Powers to a one-year deal worth $1.75 million, with the .75 portion guaranteed. That date is crucial to keep in mind because it was just one day after the deadline for which free agent signings would impact the…


Ravens Add Power To Secondary On The Cheap

All along throughout the offseason, the Baltimore Ravens elected not to address the cornerback position in free agency in spite of the fact that that seemingly had a gap in their starting lineup—at least in their nickel package, which is effectively the starting lineup for just about every defense in…


Ravens Will Have Pick Of Top Players At Several Positions

It is likely that at some point over the course of the past week you have been made aware that both the Rams and the Eagles have traded up to the first and second spots of the 2016 NFL Draft, respectively, with an eye toward drafting a quarterback. You are…


David Todd: Quick Thoughts On Steelers Versus Ravens

In a game that will go down as one of the most disappointing in the nine-year tenure of head coach Mike Tomlin, the heavily-favored Pittsburgh Steelers traveled to M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday and lost 20-17 to the now 5-10 Baltimore Ravens. This one was a complete team effort. The…
