Markus Wheaton Muffs Debut As Punt Returner

When Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was ruled out for the Broncos game with a concussion, they lost not just one highly valuable player, but two, because he was not only their top wide receiver, but also their top punt returner. As it turned out, the Steelers didn’t really…

Jordan Berry Struggles At End Of First Season In Pittsburgh

Due partly to Markus Wheaton’s awfully poor showing in his debut attempt at being a punt returner, but mostly because of their punter, Britton Colquitt, the Broncos were able to spend the day consistently ahead of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the field position battle, where they had an average starting…

Quick Hits: Steelers Vs Broncos Winners/Losers

Sorry it had to end this way, Steelers’ Nation. Not a fun feeling. But what a crazy season. Thanks for sharing it with us. WINNERS:  Stephon Tuitt: Hard to pin this loss on the defense. Tuitt was a large part of that, dominating yet again today. He forced Peyton Manning to…

Steelers Can Learn A Lot From Packers Saturday Night Loss To Cardinals

The Pittsburgh Steelers can probably learn quite a bit from the Green Bay Packers Saturday loss to the Arizona Cardinals even though they wound up losing in overtime. For starters, the packers were big underdogs heading into that game and with good reason. To start with, Green Bay hadn’t played…

Steelers Used 4WR Sets To Give Toussaint, Todman Rest

Over the course of the 16-game regular season, the Pittsburgh Steelers ran just 13 plays from either 10 or 01 personnel—that is, either one running back or one tight end on the field along with four wide receivers. All but three of those plays came from Week Nine on, after…

David Todd: Quick Thoughts On Steelers Versus Bengals Wild Card Game

In one of the craziest and most-dramatic games I’ve ever seen, the Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 18-16 at rain-soaked Paul Brown Stadium Saturday night in the Wild Card round of the NFL playoffs. As a boy I attended the Immaculate Reception game which, for me, will never be…

Steelers May Have Kick Return Quandary In Antonio Brown’s Absence

A Pittsburgh Steelers game plan that does not include All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown is a game plan that is vastly different, and vastly diminished. And if he is to miss Pittsburgh’s divisional round match against the Broncos on Sunday, it will affect not just the offensive side of the…
