Steelers O-Line Play Leading The Way For Top Five Offense

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is on pace to take the second-most sacks of his professional career in 2014, having been sacked 15 times thus far through five games at an average of three sacks per game.

Red Zone Passes Against Jacksonville Were Ben Roethlisberger’s Call

The Pittsburgh Steelers broke into the red zone four times on Sunday against the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars. They only came away with one touchdown, and two scores in total, although that includes a clock-killing drive at the end of the game. The other trip into the red zone, however, resulted in a strip sack recovered […]

Steelers Averaging 3.6 Wide Receiver Screens Per Game Heading Into Week 6

For several years now, fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers have criticized the use of wide receiver screens when it comes to talking about the offense. That criticism is not unique to offensive coordinator Todd Haley, however, as Bruce Arians was also heavily ridiculed for using wide receiver screens during his time with the Steelers. After […]

Despite Rushing Success, Steelers Still A Pass-Happy Offense

The Pittsburgh Steelers may no longer lead the league in rushing yards per game, a temporary inflation based on a whopping 264-yard rushing performance during the third game of the season, but they do still rank seventh, averaging 137.2 yards per game. More significant is that they rank fourth in the league in yards per […]

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 Spread The Wealth To 11 Different Targets

Just two days ago, I wrote about how Ben Roethlisberger’s passes this year had been unusually concentrated on four main targets: starting receivers Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton; tight end Heath Miller; and running back Le’Veon Bell. The four combined totaled 87 of Roethlisberger’s 96 completions through the first quarter of the season, with seven […]

Steelers vs Buccaneers Film Review: Marcus Gilbert

Steelers Receiving Targets Concentrated On A Core Four

It’s no surprise that wide receiver Antonio Brown has brought in the lion’s share of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns through the first quarter of the 2014 season. He is, after all, an All-Pro wide receiver coming off a 110-reception, 1499-yard, eight-touchdown performance a year ago, and he just last Sunday became […]

Steelers vs Buccaneers Film Review: Maurkice Pouncey

Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey’s return to the lineup after missing the 2013 season has made it easier on the rest of the offensive line to take on opposing defensive lines that are tough up the middle. This was a problem last year, particularly against 4-3 teams, but as we’ve seen so far through the […]

Shamarko Thomas Still Contributing To Steelers

Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers refuse to put him on the field, they have never tried to hide just how much they like second-year strong safety Shamarko Thomas. In fact, the fact that they like him as much as they do perhaps contributes to his lack of playing time this year on the defensive side […]

Steelers vs Buccaneers – What To Watch For On Offense

The Pittsburgh Steelers play host to the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers this afternoon, coming off a Pyrrhic victory that saw the team win by 18 points, but finish down three starters on defense. Of course, the team was well on its way to 0-4 by this time last year, so the 2-1 start is certainly […]
