Steelers vs Colts Film Review: David DeCastro

Pittsburgh Steelers right guard David DeCastro’s performance last week against the Indianapolis Colts, upon further review, really was not as quality as the offensive line’s overall effort suggested. In reality, much of the success of the passing game was created by the quarterback reacting to pressure with quick throws. While there were plenty of solid […]

Steelers vs Colts Film Review: Lawrence Timmons

Pittsburgh Steelers inside linebacker Lawrence Timmons has been a near-weekly focus of film review here, and for good reason, because it has been his consistent play against the run over the course of this season that has somewhat been the nucleus of this defense.
