Steelers Versus Lions – Second Half Notes And Observations

By Matthew Marczi The Steelers could not have gotten off to a worse finish in the first half, giving up 27 unanswered points and shooting themselves in the foot on offense. A three-and-out to open the third quarter did not ease the tension. Unlike in the first half, however, Mat McBriar got off an excellent […]

Steelers Versus Lions – First Half Notes And Observations

By Matthew Marczi I found it interesting that the Steelers opened up in the nickel, which they rarely use these days, favoring six defensive backs over five when not in base.

Steelers Versus Bills – First Half Notes And Observations

By Matthew Marczi The Steelers really made it a point to significantly feature Mike Adams throughout the game, and since he’s been used at tight end.
