Onward Steelers; Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad

A guy named ‘Meat Loaf’ once sang a song called ‘Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad’ and for a baseball hitter, that’s pretty damn good. For an amateur prognosticator like myself, it isn’t too bad for me either. Last week I called out three guys on defense who I said had to play better if …

Mendenhall’s Return Has a Potential Darkside

It was great to see the Pittsburgh Steelers pull out a last-second victory on Sunday over the Philadelphia Eagles. It was great to see the defense play with some new creativity and aggression. It was also great to see Rashard Mendenhall return from his ACL injury and rush for 81 yards and a touchdown. Here …

Three Keys to Victory Against the Eagles

I quite honestly could pick from a handful of maybe seven or eight keys for EVERY Steelers’ game, but that wouldn’t exactly but interesting reading for you. With that said, it’s awfully hard to not harp on the same things each week with the 2012 Steelers so far. Today I’m going with key ‘words’ as …

Onward Steelers; Attacking the Eagles’ Nine-Wide Defense

The Philadelphia Eagles currently have the 4th best defense in the National Football League and will bring their athleticism and fire to Heinz Field Sunday afternoon to take on the Steelers. As we have seen with few exceptions so far in the 2012 season, there really isn’t a truly dominant defense to be found. The …

Don’t Expect Much in the Way of Changes from Steelers’ D.

I feel like I’ve been in some form of twilight zone over the past week because I swear I’ve had the same conversation over and over. Perhaps the scariest part is that it wasn’t any twilight zone, it was reality and for every conversation I’ve had about the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense it always ends the …

Onward Steelers; TE Miller Having Career Year

When Pittsburgh Steelers’ Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley made his first comments after accepting the job, the first player he mentioned wasn’t Mike Wallace or Ben Roethlisberger. Oddly enough, it was tight end Heath Miller who Haley spoke of in glowing terms. After the first three games of 2012, it’s easy to see why Haley was …

Steelers defense; lack of scheme, lack of talent, or something else?

It’s hard for anyone in the Steeler Nation to admit when the defense is just not what it used to be. We’re a proud group of fans cheering for a proud team with an amazing history that nobody can ever take away. Ok maybe it’s not hard for some and unfortunately it’s getting easier to …

Onward Steelers; It’s Time to Accept This is a Passing Offense

If you haven’t come to the realization that the Pittsburgh Steelers are a pass-first team then perhaps you’ve been watching re-runs of the Seventies’ Steelers. Art Rooney II can say Ben Roethlisberger needs to ‘tweak his game’ all he wants to but I didn’t see anything that needed tweaking yesterday in the 34-31 loss to …

Roethlisberger a master on 3rd downs, but how long can it last?

If there’s one thing that an offense hates, other than turnovers, it’s 3rd and long. You make yourself much more predictable to the defense and let’s face it, most teams don’t have many 3rd and 20 plays in their offensive game plan. The Steelers have been making a living out of converting large down and …
