Steelers vs Browns II Film Review: Lawrence Timmons

Through the early stage of the season, the Pittsburgh Steelers found themselves suffering greatly due to the subpar performance of their veteran inside linebacker, Lawrence Timmons. Since his shaky start in the first two games, however, he has consistently been one of the best players on this defensive unit, particularly in the running game. Quite […]

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 24 snaps and one reception […]

Steelers vs Browns II Film Review: Ramon Foster

Pittsburgh Steelers guard Ramon Foster missed two games earlier in the season, but he has been back for two weeks now, and has been playing well as the offensive line starts to come together. He had his best game of the season on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. Not only was he seemingly flawless in […]

Steelers vs Browns II Film Review: Cameron Heyward

Defensive end Cameron Heyward was the only player in the last game the Pittsburgh Steelers could count on to get to the quarterback with any kind of consistency—and even much of that was assisted by the coverage on the back end. While he picked up his third sack in six games and generated a few […]

Steelers vs Browns II Film Review: Troy Polamalu

Safety Troy Polamalu has long been among the best at his position league-wide playing the run. His run support from the back end had a lot to do with the Pittsburgh Steelers boasting one of the best defenses of the 90s. With that once vaunted defense no longer what it once was, he still finds […]

Steelers Defense Looks Different Just Six Weeks Later

The Pittsburgh Steelers will be putting a defense on the field that is radically different in appearance than the one that began last season. As a matter of fact, this is a defense that will already be markedly different from that one that they even opened this season with. If we got back to the […]

Martavis Bryant, DHB Could Be Heading For Weekly Battle

The Pittsburgh Steelers have scored one touchdown in the red zone over the course of their last two games on seven trips inside their opponents’ 20-yard line. While they already came into that span toward the bottom of the spectrum in terms of red zone efficiency around the league, they now rank 31st in that […]

Second Demotion For Cortez Allen Raises Long-Term Questions

Once considered a long-term projected, fourth-year Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen steadily ascended through his first two seasons in the NFL, graduating from dime back to nickel back, and finally to starter by year three. The Steelers chose to let Keenan Lewis leave in free agency without even making an offer for a multiplicity of […]

Steelers vs Browns II Film Review: Heath Miller

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been fortunate to have the services of a tight end such as Heath Miller for the past decade. They still are. But the reality is that he isn’t exactly the player he once was, particularly as a blocker. That’s not to say that he can’t get the job anymore, by any […]

Steelers vs Browns II Film Review: Matt Spaeth

If you look at the snap count numbers for the Pittsburgh Steelers’ run-heavy personnel, such as fullback Will Johnson and second tight end Matt Spaeth, you would think that the team went into the game against the Cleveland Browns looking to air the ball out. Johnson hardly played, while Spaeth was limited to just 13 […]

Steelers vs Browns II Second Half Notes And Observations

Below are my notes and observations upon reviewing the first half of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ loss to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Half of the Browns’ completions and the majority of their passing yards came against Cortez Allen. He was beaten for 31 yards by Travis Benjamin early in the second half. The defense shut […]

Steelers vs Browns II First Half Notes And Observations

Below are my notes and observations upon reviewing the first half of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ loss to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. On Dri Archer’s first kick return, Vince Williams missed his block, which got Archer tackled on the 14. The ‘start’ by Lance Moore was evidently a token gesture, as he didn’t play again […]

Statistics Favor Steelers Over Texans More Than Reality Might

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been riding an irritating trend thus far this season, having alternated wins and losses through the first six games. Their last game ended in an embarrassing defeat, so if that pattern is to hold, they must win against the Houston Texans on Monday night. History supports that probability, according to Steelers […]

Steelers Out Of The Zone Against Texans Rush Without Steve McLendon

The Pittsburgh Steelers were gashed on the ground by their opponents’ running games during the first two games of the season. Over the next three games, however, the numbers began to die down significantly. This resulted in triggering a false positive that the Steelers had ‘fixed’ their issues in the running game, which proved not […]

Wesley Johnson Waiver Loss Unfortunate, But Negligible

While the Pittsburgh Steelers look to get some possible first-opportunity contributions from two of their rookie draft picks next week, one May selection is unlikely to do so again in a black and gold uniform. Former fifth-round offensive lineman Wesley Johnson was claimed off waivers by the New York Jets in order to replace Brian […]

Steelers Could Debut Two Rookie Draft Picks Monday

The Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping to get a boost out of two of their rookie draft picks on Monday, neither of whom have yet dressed for a game. Head coach Mike Tomlin said yesterday during his press conference that he was looking at 6’4” wide receiver Martavis Bryant as a possible option against the Houston […]

Lance Moore Gets His Chance After Steelers Abandon The Run

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Lance Moore started against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. And then he came off the field, after one snap, remaining on the sidelines for most of the rest of the first half. But it was Justin Brown standing on the sidelines during the second half, as most of Moore’s 36 snaps […]

Steelers Show A 4-5-2 Goal Line Package Against Cleveland

It seemed odd to me when reviewing the snap counts from the Pittsburgh Steelers game against the Cleveland Browns that three of the four starting members of the secondary all played every snap but two. I realized that something must have occurred during the game that I missed to cause this quirk, and indeed it […]

Dri Archer’s Play Not Special Enough To Demand A Helmet

The Pittsburgh Steelers certainly seem intent on finding more ways to get rookie running back Dri Archer involved and contributing to the team’s success. On Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, Archer carried the ball three times, received one pass, returned three kickoffs, and fielded one punt. On offense, he produced a total of 24 yards. […]

Roethlisberger, Wheaton No Longer Reading The Same Page

Although he didn’t outright drop any of his targets on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, second-year Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Markus Wheaton was clearly struggling to get on the same page with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. And that’s a problem, because the fast-growing rapport between the two was a big reason why the Steelers found any […]

Meaningless Statistics Even More Meaningless In A Loss

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown recorded seven receptions for 118 yards against the Cleveland Browns yesterday. It was his third 100-yard receiving game of the season in six games, and he’s just three yards behind Jordy Nelson for the most receiving yards in the league with 629, averaging more than 100 yards per game.

Steelers Offense Hitting Potholes On The Road

The bad news is that, overall, the Pittsburgh Steelers offense on the road has been little short of terrible this season. On the plus side, however, they’ve already gotten half of their away games out of the way, and have come through that with a winning record, going 2-2 on the road. That does nothing […]

Steelers Can’t Stack Wins, Can’t Afford To Stack Losses

The Pittsburgh Steelers have yet to lose two games in a row this season. But they haven’t won two games in a row either. The trend thus far has been an emulation of a roller coaster, with the Steelers trading wins and losses on a weekly basis. It’s had both the team and the fans […]

Steelers Knocking On AFC North Basement Door

And just like that, the Pittsburgh Steelers are back in the basement. Many, no doubt, would argue that that’s just where they belong. And I’m not sure I could give a compelling enough argument to the contrary. The basement of which I speak is, of course, at the bottom of the AFC North division, of […]

Steelers vs Browns II Second Live Update And Discussion Thread

The Pittsburgh Steelers took a 21-3 deficit into halftime after the Cleveland Browns put up three touchdowns in the second quarter. The Steelers offense was moving well early on before sputtering late, but red zone inefficiency and a botched field goal means that they have just three points to show for it.
