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. The Browns start the second […]

Slow Starts Still Hurting Steelers Defense

During the broadcast of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars, it was mentioned, after the home team had netted a field goal, that Pittsburgh has allowed their opponents to score on every opening drive thus far this season.

Steelers vs Jaguars Film Review: Cam Thomas

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost both Ziggy Hood and Al Woods in free agency, and they replaced those losses with free agent Cam Thomas. Thomas continues to start at left defensive end. The reason that the previous statement is preceded with a qualifying verb, however, is because there is, and has been, speculation that that position […]

Steelers vs Jaguars Film Review: Justin Brown

Despite three weeks back now from a groin injury, veteran wide receiver Lance Moore continues to play behind first-year Justin Brown, who frankly finally had a solid game as a wide receiver against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Perhaps solid ‘drive’ would be more accurate, since he was only targeted three times in the game, and they […]

Steelers vs Jaguars Film Review: Maurkice Pouncey

The play of fifth-year center Maurkice Pouncey this year must be putting the Pittsburgh Steelers front office at ease after they elected to make him the highest-paid player at his position based on annual average salary. Even though he made the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons before 2013 was wiped out […]

James Harrison played his second game back with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, logging about a third of the team’s defensive snaps in a rotation with linebacker Arthur Moats.
