Fourth-Quarter Comeback A Sign Of Things To Come?

By Matthew Marczi If you really think about it, there isn’t all that much that separates this season from many other years in Ben Roethlisberger’s career. The majority of the games end in close scores with the victor decided in the fourth quarter. Sure, the scores may on average be higher, partly due to the […]

Todd Haley Continuing To Shake Up The Wildcat

By Matthew Marczi As the season goes on, Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley continues to tinker with his sparsely-used Wildcat packages.

Steelers Should Consider Using FB Will Johnson More In The Passing Game

Heading into the 2013 season, I was pretty sure that Pittsburgh Steelers fullback Will Johnson would be used more in the passing game after registering 15 catches for 137 yards last season.

Roethlisberger Not Big On Using An Extra Offensive Lineman Inside The Red Zone

Earlier this week, I wrote about how the Pittsburgh Steelers offense has struggled inside the red zone this season and on Wednesday, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was asked to give his thoughts on the subject. “We scored twice down there but we kicked field goals,” started Roethlisberger. “That’s why I think I was so disappointed after […]

Jonathan Dwyer Taking A Liking To Short-Yardage Role

By Matthew Marczi A few weeks back, I observed a certain trend in the way that the Pittsburgh Steelers began using running back Jonathan Dwyer, and speculated that the team was building a role for him as a short-yardage back.

Steelers Kept Adams Focused On Run-Blocking Against The Bills

A Few Bright Spots From Cody Wallace Against The Raiders

By Matthew Marczi When Cody Wallace was forced into the game due to the injuries to Ramon Foster and Guy Whimper, it was certainly alarming—not simply because it meant the Pittsburgh Steelers were down two linemen, but also because we had never seen Wallace play before and did not know what he offered. While he […]

In With A Whimper, Out With A Bang

By Matthew Marczi Nobody was a fan, on record, of the Pittsburgh Steelers signing Guy Whimper as a veteran presence on a very young offensive line this offseason. Not many took any positives out of his performance during the preseason games. Most only begrudgingly included him by default as the 53rd player to make the […]
