2012 Grades, Position by Position, Defense

Pittsburgh Steelers Keep the Ball in Their Hands, Use Shaun Suisham’s Foot to Beat Ravens, 23-20

Did anyone really trust Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman to hold on to the football? Emmanuel Sanders couldn’t do it Sunday in Baltimore. He lost a fumble and dropped a pass. Mike Wallace also dropped a pass. That’s not what the Pittsburgh Steelers needed a week after turning the ball over eight times in Cleveland. …

Let’s see, the Pittsburgh Steelers are without Ben Roethlisberger and Troy Polamalu. They showed some promise earlier this season with a four-game winning streak that got them to six wins. Then they lost two straight, including a 20-14 defeat in Cleveland to a woeful Browns team. Now they’re 6-5 and losing their grip on a …

Ravens-Steelers Will Boil Down to the Defenses

By now you know that Ben Roethlisberger is not going to play Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens or anytime in the near future for that matter. Antonio Brown is still on the shelf as is Marcus Gilbert. Amazingly, their absences might actually place more emphasis on the defenses for Sunday Night’s match-up. The Ravens and …

Onward Steelers; Like It or Not, Time for Back-Ups to Step Up

Head Coach Mike Tomlin came down from on high for his weekly press conference and announced what sounded more like a list of soldiers in the infirmary rather than a list of injured football players. Rashard Mendenhall, Isaac Redman, Maurkice Pouncey were called ‘questionable.’ Troy Polamalu, Marcus Gilbert and Chris Carter are each ‘out’ for …
