It’s time for the Steelers to dress more than 7 offensive lineman

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been playing with fire since the dawn of time it seems, when it comes to the offensive line.  How many more injuries will it take before the coaching staff finally decides that carrying at least 8 active linemen on game day is the way to go?  Would it be so bad …

Mike Tomlin takes responsibility for missed field goal in loss to Titans

The Steelers came into Tennessee on a short week but coming off a big win against the Eagles, and seemingly back in control after a strong performance on the ground and good defense. Things aren’t always as they appear to be if you’re a Steeler a fan, then Thursday night was never more evident of …

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 …

Steelers historically do well at home against NFC teams

Steelers vs Eagles

Perhaps playing the Philadelphia Eagles will be just what the doctor ordered for the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday at Heinz Field. I’m certainly not suggesting that playing the Eagles is going to be a cakewalk, not by a long stretch. However, for a team at 1-2; looking to right the ship that has so far …

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 …

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 …

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 …

For the Steelers, the dreaded trap scenario looms large in week 3

No coach in the NFL will openly admit that an upcoming opponent is potentially a trap game. Doing so immediately gives bulletin board material to the other team and makes you appear that you are clearly superior. Even if that is the case it’s just not a can of worms that you want to open. …

Mike Tomlin talks about defending the no-huddle offense

Let me start this out by saying that I am in no way insinuating anything negative about Mike Tomlin. As a Steeler fan I have the utmost respect for him and what he’s been able to accomplish so far in his young head coaching career. His drafts have been solid and there is a ton …

Offensive Line problems plague Steelers again as Foster and Gilbert leave with injuries

The Offensive Line for the Steelers was not the sole reason they lost to the Denver Broncos 31-19 on Sunday night, there was plenty of blame to go around on both sides of the ball. Every year though we have this conversation about our Steelers, the offensive line this, the offensive line that, it’s well …
