Steelers defense vs Bengals, concentrate on the pass or rush?

Normally this would be a no brainer question, the Steelers under Dick Lebeau have always taken the mentality that you stop the run first and make the team one dimensional. This allows you make them more predictable and in theory easier to defend. This year the Steelers defense is ranked 4th overall, allowing 295 yds …

Steelers and Eagles Prove Their Are Many Ways to Run an Organization

This week, the Philadelphia Eagles fired defensive coordinator Juan Castillo after six games. Castillo was never really seen as a true defensive coordinator to be honest due to his time as an offensive line coach, but nevertheless was made the scapegoat as the Eagles continue to slide. Never mind the fact that Michael Vick has …

Steelers’ Ta’amu can consider himself fortunate to only get a 2 week suspension

If there’s one thing that the Rooney’s do not tolerate above all else, it’s dumb decisions that tarnish the reputation of their team in Pittsburgh. As rookie NT Alameda Ta’amu found out today, there is no substitute for good, sound, judgment and the penalties for a lack thereof are not to be taken lightly. Many …

Are Defensive Woes in Football Unique to Just the Steelers?

The Cincinnati Bengals gave up a bunch of points Sunday and the Cleveland Browns gave up a bunch too but still earned their first victory of the season. The Baltimore Ravens continue to prove they can win all types of games yet gave up over 400 yards of offense including over 200 on the ground. …

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 …

Onward Steelers; Three Guys Who Need to Show Themselves Sunday

Nothing I say will surprise you if you follow and watch the Steelers enough but I would be remiss if I didn’t attack the issue nevertheless. Many pundits and experts think that the Steelers are just fine and that whenever they show signs of age or of problems in one area or another they seemingly …

At 1-2, Steelers should leave their talking for the field on Sunday

When you’re 1-2 and coming off a loss to a team you have no business losing too, now is hardly the time to be stirring the pot with pointless chatter if you’re the Pittsburgh Steelers. After all, who does these guys think they are, Anthony Smith? Whether or not Steve McLendon, Antonio Brown, and Isaac …

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 …

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 …
