Personnel & Play Calling Breakdown In The Ravens Game: What Worked And What Didn’t

Offensive Line Balt Game 1

Not gonna lie, this one was pretty ugly. How else do you describe an offensive performance that puts just six points on the board? Still, I think there are some important tidbits to glean from this information that tell us a little bit more about the Steelers’ offensive tendencies. Likewise, I think there is some value in comparing their personnel packages and play calling this week relative to last week’s game against the Browns. As always, if you have any suggestions for me in regard to this material…what might be interesting to see….what is confusing, not helpful, etc, etc, please let me know. I’m all ears! As a reminder, here is the cheat sheet on personnel packages I posted last week.

Steelers vs Ravens: Picking Up Right Where They Left Off

I think many Steelers fans (myself included) were going in to Thursday night’s Ravens game asking themselves which was the REAL Steelers team? Was it that electrifying group that lit up a respectable Cleveland defense for 27 first half points last Sunday? Or was it the other one? The one that….well, you know what happened in that second half. Sadly, I think we found our answer Thursday night and it wasn’t the one we were hoping for. I don’t have to tell you what a monstrosity this game was, but I’ll share with you some observations I had from this game and maybe they might shed light on why some of this nightmare is happening. The Good This’ll be short. Is “this’ll” even a word? Pretty sure not. 1) Le’Veon Bell – Yep, I was a bit miffed when they spent a second round pick on him last offseason. Yep, I’m […]

Offensive Personnel Breakdown In The Cleveland Game: What Worked & What Didn’t

Browns game 1 hurry up

I thought I would try and provide some more detailed discussion this season on the Steelers offensive performance each week. More specifically, I want to take a closer look at offensive tendencies in terms of personnel groupings, play calling, the no huddle, even offensive line performance. I really hope that you find this informative and that it helps to better your understanding of the game. It takes a fair amount of time and effort to compile this, so I would appreciate any feedback you have as to whether this is helpful or not and what you might like to see added or removed. Before I get in to specifics of the Cleveland game, though, here is a brief tutorial of how personnel groupings are coded. If you are already familiar, feel free to skip this section. Personnel Groupings The personnel grouping codes that I’m presenting here are in the same format that […]

Steelers Stuff You Need To Know – 9/8/14

PFF scores Browns game 1 2014

In this section, I give you a brief, concise rundown of all the Steelers news that is relevant and worth knowing about. Check it out: * The Steelers emerged from Sunday’s game relatively unscathed on the injury front with only Dri Archer (ankle) and Shamarko Thomas (groin) listed as questionable for Thursday’s Ravens game. * Couple days late, but the Steelers inked cornerback Cortez Allen to a four-year $26 million extension. No word on the guaranteed portion. I’m a little surprised to hear this as the rumor during camp was the team wasn’t interested in extending his contract this offseason and was content to see how he played this season before making an offer. * Troy Polamalu (11 tackles), Mike Mitchell (7) and Cortez Allen (6) led the team in tackles Sunday. If that doesn’t tell you something about how that front seven played, I don’t know what will. * […]

Here’s What A Two Game Suspension Looks Like

The only person more unhappy than Ray Rice that this video got leaked is Roger Goodell. His two game suspension of Rice is maybe his worst ruling ever and that’s saying something. Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames. As for the happy couple, you’ll be relieved to know she and Ray tied the knot one day after he was indicted for third degree aggravated assault. Must have been a fairy tale style wedding. I wonder if OJ was the best man?
