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 …

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 …

On the Steelers; 10-6 Just Seems Right This Season

What kind of writer, blogger or so-called ‘expert’ would I be if I didn’t tell you my thoughts on how the Pittsburgh Steelers will fare this year and why? Normally, I really hate these types of pieces because it’s just so hard to see what the future holds especially as it pertains to injuries, team …

Steelers Need to Let Ben Be Ben

I know Ken Laird of Trib Live Radio saw what I saw and I know Twitter friend and Pittsburgh sports expert @SteelersCrash saw it too. I also know one of my favorite writers, Dejan Kovecevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review saw it as well because he forwarded a tweet from @SteelersCrash about it. Now that I’m done sounding …

On the Steelers; The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Buffalo

Anytime you see a score of 38-7 you think, “man, what a blowout!” Let’s remember however this is the preseason and that in the instance of first team vs. first team it was really only 14-7 so keep things in perspective my friends. Obviously, the biggest news is the worst news from last night as …

SteelDad’s Rants and Slants Version 7.0

Kicking Off ‘Very surprised’ is the best way I can say it after learning of the firing of Steelers Special Teams Coach Al Everest. I suppose there is much more to the story than we may ever know but the guy took a unit that was pretty awful and turned it into one that didn’t …

Kicking Game Far From Settled in Steelers’ Preseason

If you’re one of those rabid, obsessed fans or a coach then you know how crucial special teams can be in the outcome of a game, especially at the professional level. For the …
