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 …

Taylor and Green is a Match-Up to Watch

The Pittsburgh Steelers have many issues right now when it comes to playing defense. They are struggling to get pressure on the quarterback which has led to problems creating turnovers. There are injury issues with guys like Troy Polamalu and potentially LaMarr Woodley and/or James Harrison. The one area the Steelers probably never imagined they’d …

No Mike, It IS the Process

Pittsburgh Steelers’ Head Coach Mike Tomlin was asked in his post-game comments last evening following a horrible 26-23 loss to Tennessee if these road woes are a product of the process and whether or not it needs to be changed. In his typical and uninspired coach-speak, he said he “doubts”  it’s the process and I …

Steelers must be ready for a desperate Titans team

The Steelers will bring their 2-2 record to Tennessee tonight to face an old foe that dates back to the days of the old AFC Central division. While this is hardly a Clash of the Titans (sorry, couldn’t resist), Pittsburgh can’t come into this game with anything less than an unwavering determination to get on …

Ryan Clark, Ike Taylor outlast bad officiating in Steelers win

As a fan, I’ve been somewhat tolerant of the NFL Replacement Officials this season. After all, these are mainly college officials from smaller schools thrust into the limelight under a ton of pressure. Every missed call can turn the outcome of game upside down potentially. Having said that, things have gotten worse rather than better …

Steelers finish strong in home opener to down Jets, 27-10

This was a huge game for the Steelers, and not just because it was the home opener. Going down 0-2 on the season was just not something that Lamarr Woodley or anyone else on the team was willing to concede. It was imperative to start out strong in this game, get the home crowd into …

Blitzburgh It Isn’t; This Defense Has Issues

At what point do we start to finally question the seemingly ‘unquestionable?’ For whatever reason, Dick LeBeau has always gotten a free pass from most Steelers’ fans and I think a lot of it has to do with his legendary status and great track record. Unfortunately, the history doesn’t mean anything because this is about …

Steelers defense has no answer for Peyton Manning in 2nd half; losing opener 31-19

If you talked to virtually anybody outside of Pittsburgh, and even many Steeler fans, this one was going to be an easy win for the Broncos. Peyton Manning was back, the Steelers would be without James Harrison and Ryan Clark, insert any other reason you wish. While the Steelers did manage to keep it close …

Steelers’ Three Keys to Victory in Denver

I am so ready to be done talking about last year’s AFC Wild-Card loss to Denver that I’m considering banning any words that begin with the letter ‘D’ in my house. I’m tired of hearing about it and you’re tired of hearing about so imagine how guys like Ike Taylor, LaMarr Woodley and Troy Polamalu …

With Clark Out Let’s Hope It Isn’t Deja ‘vu All Over Again

There isn’t a player today in the National Football League or in the past that didn’t have his detractors. Whether those fans find criticism in a particular players’ style, ability, or decision to even keep playing or not the fact is all players receive criticism. Even a guy like Barry Sanders had detractors. Pittsburgh Steelers’ …
