Steelers Vs Titans Win/Loss Scenarios

Back at it on gameday, breaking down what the Pittsburgh Steelers have to do to win (or lose) in today’s game against the Tennessee Titans. My always unreliable prediction at the bottom.

Game Rewind: Steelers Vs Colts Notes

Game notes from last Sunday’s win over the Indianapolis Colts. First Half – Kick return unit. Slightly different look with a six man front instead of five. McDonald-Moats-Matakevich-Golden-Chickillo-Fort. Conner/Walton/Nix the wedge, JuJu/Watson the kick returners. – Out of the bye, Keith Butler brought back his over front a couple times….


Keith Butler Expects Coty Sensabaugh To Step Up In Haden’s Absence

Similar to what we wrote yesterday and just as the Pittsburgh Steelers’ mantra has been under Mike Tomlin, it’s all about next man up. No Joe Haden? Insert Coty Sensabaugh and the standard remains the standard. Speaking with reporters yesterday, Keith Butler expects Sensabaugh to play at a high level….


Watch: Steelers Playing Man Coverage In Critical Moments

Back at it talking to the tape today. Lot of discussion about how little man coverage the Pittsburgh Steelers are playing this year. But some numbers lose the context. Watch the tape and you’ll see the Steelers are playing more man-to-man on critical downs. We take a look at some of those…

Coty Sensabaugh Ready To Be The ‘Next Man Up’

I don’t have the scientific data on it but I’m pretty sure the player we talked about least on this site was Coty Sensabaugh. Heck, this is only the third article with his name in the headline since the start of the season. Some speculated he could be cut when…

Steelers Vs Colts Sack Breakdown

Been awhile since we’ve had to do one of this. Which is most definitely a good thing. Looking at the one sack the Pittsburgh Steelers allowed Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. 1. 1st and 10, 2:54 1st. 22 personnel. Five block vs five rush.  Pretty clear who is at fault…


Film Room: Breaking Down Pittsburgh’s Blown Coverages

Steelers Vs Colts Missed Tackles Report

One week after a much-needed bye week, the Pittsburgh Steelers picked up right where they left off in the tackling department:  struggling.

Mike Tomlin Excited To See Dick LeBeau (But Not Excited To Play Him)

Thursday night games aren’t fun for a football team. You’re tired, physically and mentally. You’re under prepared, a weeks worth of information squeezed into three days. So it helps to play a familiar face. But when that face is Dick LeBeau, the road really isn’t any easier. In today’s press…
