Examining Big Ben’s 2014 Completion Percentage: Part 3

We’ve looked at a lot of vital factors to Ben Roethlisberger’s career year last season, and seen vivid examples of how the usage of running backs and the creation of mismatches with the receiving corps helped elevate the team’s offensive success in 2014. Because of the increase in higher-percentage throws…

AFC North Draft History Study: Defensive Backs

On the heels of the conclusion of the 2015 NFL Draft, I began to realize the need to enhance my understanding of each team’s draft history; what they’ve built or attempted to build over the past ten years and how they’ve went about that process. This may seem tedious to…

AFC North Free Agency Watch Day 1: Cleveland Browns

If you’re a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers, then the opening day of free agency was basically a total snoozefest, outside of the front office evidently prank calling Darrelle Revis’ agent, unless there is some other reasonable explanation for that communication. But that wasn’t the case around the rest of…

MSU’s Trae Waynes Likes To Let His Play Do The Talking

When I think of an NFL cornerback, I think of the pick-sixes into the end zone, the Deion Sanders’ high-steps or the post-game Richard Sherman tirade. They ooze confidence, and swagger comes with the territory of the position, especially when recognized as one of the best. The position is in…

Browns CB Joe Haden Praises Steelers WR Antonio Brown

Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden is one of the best players in the league at his position, but even he has his kryptonite and part of it resides in Pittsburgh. During a Wednesday interview on the SVP & Russillo Show, Haden was asked who ‘got’ him in 2014 and he…

2014 Steelers Player Reviews: Quarterbacks

As we did last year, we’ll review the Pittsburgh Steelers position-by-position, player-by-player, based on what I have recorded in my Game Rewind notes throughout the season. We’ll start with quarterback. Or more accurately, Big Ben and two other dudes. Ben Roethlisberger: Although I probably will anyway, you don’t need me…

Steelers vs Browns II Film Review: Justin Brown

There are many reports suggesting that despite the fact that he’s logged 265 snaps in six games, Justin Brown will be the odd man out amongst the receivers for the Pittsburgh Steelers when rookie Martavis Bryant, presumably, gets his first helmet. This is as opposed to Darrius Heyward-Bey, he of…

Steelers Vs. Browns Game Rewind – Second Half

By Alex Kozora Observations from the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-10 loss against the Cleveland Browns last Sunday. Second Half – Troy Polamalu appears to be cheating on this route, expecting a corner route. Not sure why though. Saw something on film study? It’s just odd because it’s typical for the Browns…
