Steelers vs Ravens II Film Review: Ramon Foster

Pittsburgh Steelers left guard Ramon Foster missed two games earlier this season with an injury. He suddenly got healthy after the offensive line paved the way for a massive 250+ rushing yard day against the Carolina Panthers, and he has played pretty well since then over the next four games. That wasn’t quite the case […]

Steelers vs Ravens II Film Review: Antonio Brown

What exactly can you say at this point about Antonio Brown that hasn’t already been said? What left is there for him to show that he hasn’t yet? He makes highlight reel touchdown catches, is deadly in the open field, and his sharp routes leave cornerbacks dizzy. His 2013 campaign was exceptional, recording 110 receptions […]

Steelers vs Ravens II Film Review: Sean Spence And Vince Williams

Although it’s certainly not new territory for the Pittsburgh Steelers this season, they will once again be without the services of their sole rookie starter this year, inside linebacker Ryan Shazier, who is missing his fifth game of the season with a new injury.

Steelers vs Ravens II Film Review: Cam Thomas

Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers defense did manage to hold the Baltimore Ravens offense to just 16 points on Sunday—and one of their two touchdowns came as the result of a fumble recovered at the Steelers’ 33-yard line—I’m still going to take a look at Cam Thomas and his role as a starter, and whether […]

Steelers vs Ravens II Film Review: Maurkice Pouncey

Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers managed to take the ball across the goal line six times once again on offense for the second week in a row, it wouldn’t necessarily be accurate to ascribe that too much to the offensive line as a whole. The guard play in particular was lacking, and the Baltimore Ravens […]

Steelers vs Ravens II Film Review: Matt Spaeth

When the Pittsburgh Steelers get the chance to play with the lead, they tend to like to use more 12 and 21 personnel. Sometimes they like to use two tight ends in the beginning until they’re trailing as well. But they haven’t been trailing very often recently, and the playing time for Matt Spaeth has […]

Steelers vs Ravens II Film Review: Martavis Bryant

There’s no contesting the fact that the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offense has benefited greatly with the injection of 6’4” rookie wide receiver Martavis Bryant into the rotation over the past three weeks.

Steelers vs Ravens II Second Half Notes And Observations

Below are my notes and observations of the second half of the Pittsburgh Steelers 43-23 victory over the Baltimore Ravens.

Antwon Blake Steps Up For Steelers In Sub-Package

After a string of frustratingly inconsistent games from starting cornerback Cortez Allen, the Pittsburgh Steelers made the tough decision to demote him to sub-package duty three games ago against the Houston Texans. The move seemed to make sense at the time. Replacing him in the starting lineup was Brice McCain, who’d spent his entire career […]

Second-year Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell began the 2014 season recording over 100 yards from scrimmage in every game through the first half of the year.
