Sack Breakdown: Steelers Vs Dolphins

Two (sort of) sacks this week to go through. 1. 3rd and 10, 6:15 1st. 11 personnel. Five block + RB/TE check and release against a four man rush. I say sort of because this sack was wiped out by penalty yet it still counts in the official stat book….


Steelers Vs Dolphins Positional Grades

Sunday’s road trip to Miami Gardens to take on the Miami Dolphins was largely an embarrassment for the Pittsburgh Steelers as it was a classic trap game in the Mike Tomlin era. The 30-15 loss in which the Steelers were physically dominated was very disheartening, and with the Ben Roethlisberger…


Watch: Steelers Vs Dolphins Initial Analysis

Need to preface this post by saying I recorded my analysis right before the Ben Roethlisberger surgery report by Ron Cook came out. So that, obviously, is not included in here. But the rest of my thoughts on the game are. The Pittsburgh Steelers inability to move the football offensively…


Film Room: Making Sense Of Pittsburgh’s Terrible Run Defense

I’m going to take a wild stab at it and guess the Pittsburgh Steelers weren’t too pleased with their run defense yesterday. In fact, it was basically as bad as it’s ever been under Mike Tomlin. Win or lose, I’m always interested in the “why.” A lack of coaches tape…

Steelers Know They Lack Physicality And Rhythm In Sunday’s Loss

The only rhythm the Pittsburgh Steelers had Sunday afternoon was rhythm and blues. And the only thing worse than that joke was their performance in the trenches in a 30-15 loss to the Miami Dolphins. A rushing attack besieged by penalties and forgotten about because of circumstances, a run defense…


Steelers Need To Lean Heavily On Bell With Roethlisberger Out

The Pittsburgh Steelers will now move forward without starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for an unknown amount of time due to him now needing surgery Monday morning to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee that he suffered during the first half of Sundays loss to the Miami Dolphins. With…


Steelers 3rd & 1 Play-Call Late In First Half Deserves Criticism

In general, I don’t get too caught up in bashing individual play-calls that the Pittsburgh Steelers offense runs on a week-to-week basis. Sure, you could probably go through each and every game and circle 5 or 6 plays based on results and find faults or easily state what probably should…


Stats Of The Weird: Steelers Vs Dolphins

So weird. So sad. So embarrassing. – This was just the fifth 30-15 final score in NFL history. And the second one the Pittsburgh Steelers have ever been involved in. They had a victory by that score on November 22nd, 1998, over the Jacksonville Jaguars. – This was Ben Roethlisberger’s…

7 gut reactions from the Pittsburgh Steelers Week 6 loss to the Miami Dolphins. 1 – The Steelers seem to have an uncanny knack for playing down to lesser competition. The Dolphins reeled off 23 unanswered points in a dominant performance. If it wasn’t for an illegal formation by the…
